Conveniently located in Hector, NY, on the east side of Seneca Lake. This beautifully renovated farmhouse cottage is bordered by vineyards owned by Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards. During warmer months, enjoy a glass of wine sitting on the large back deck while surrounded by cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc grape vines. Or sit on the wrap-around porch and enjoy the cool shade and wonderful breeze. For winter rentals, the house is fully insulated and heated with an electric fireplace for a cozy winter stay.
Inside you will find hardwood floors throughout the dining and living rooms, a newly renovated kitchen with gas range, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator with in-the-door ice and water. A few steps down from the kitchen is a cozy sunroom - perfect for morning coffee! The large full bathroom includes a washer and dryer for our guests' convenience. The second floor features two bedrooms with an incredible view of the vineyards and Seneca Lake from the master bedroom.
“Hector Vineyard Cottage” sleeps four to six persons – two in each bedroom, and two on the living room futon (with a comfy 10" queen-sized mattress!). A small cot is available if needed. Bedrooms feature two twin beds that can be set up as separate twins or put together as a king-size bed with a comfy king-size mattress pad - just let us know what you prefer!
