Seneca Solitude is a year-round cottage that is tucked away just a mile and a quarter off Route 14. Travel through rolling farmlands and down our private drive (shared with two neighbors) and you will feel like you are miles away from the world.
Seneca Solitude has everything to make your lakefront vacation memorable, relaxing and fun! We like to call the view from our Great Room windows “the Million Dollar View”. It feels as if you are standing in the middle of the lake itself as you drink in the panoramic view! This view is shared by the kitchen/dining room, master bedroom and 3rd bedroom/family room.
One of the most compelling reasons for you to rent our home is our beautiful lakefront and breathtaking view of Seneca Lake. We have 110 feet of level lakefront for you to enjoy. This is great if you are bringing the kids since the little ones can safely play at the water’s edge. Our dock extends 50 feet out into Seneca Lake, long enough for you to get a running start and jump off! The dock opens up into a wide space at the end. There is a picnic table out there so you can enjoy your meals or snacks out on the lake. Sip your morning coffee, a glass of wine or just relax in the Adirondack chairs that have been placed out there for you as you soak in the breathtaking view of Seneca Lake at her widest point. There is also a deck, with covered pergola, accessible from the great room and master bedroom, with a brand new tile dining table, hanging lights to illuminate your evenings outside and outdoor speakers to listen to your favorite tunes. We have two kayaks and a paddleboat for those who want to venture out onto the lake. The kids will love making s’mores over our fire pit or roasting hot dogs for a campfire dinner!
Do you like to cook? Our kitchen has been updated with you in mind! A new stove with ventilation, new countertops, center island, and all the implements and utensils you will need to whip up wonderful meals are at your fingertips. There is also a new grill if you would prefer to cook outside and enjoy eating your meals alfresco! The kitchen is two steps up from the great room and designed to give you the same amazing view!
Our Great Room is just that: Great! If you want to take yourself indoors for a while and still enjoy our beautiful view, this is your room! Relax on our comfy sofa and loveseat with recliners while watching the 51” flat screen HDTV. If you would just like to read a book or look out over the lake with a glass of wine, the other side of the great room has another loveseat for you to curl up on. Games, puzzles and a blu-ray player are also available for your entertainment. Satellite TV and Internet access complete the picture! The house has central air condition to keep you cool on hot summer days!
Our bonus room functions as an extra gathering space during the day and converts to a private 3rd bedroom with a queen-sized Murphy bed at night. If the kids want a space for themselves, this is the room for them, with a 42-inch flat screen HDTV available.
The master bedroom has a 32-inch flat screen HDTV as well as an ensuite bathroom that has just been renovated. It contains a tiled bathtub/shower combination, beautiful tiled floors and walls and a round porthole window to truly make you feel like you are afloat on Seneca Lake! Wake to an amazing view of the lake every morning from your bed; what a great way to start your day! Bring your iPod and you can listen to your favorite music on the ihome alarm clock on your nightstand.
There is a second remodeled bathroom with a new tiled shower and tiled walls and floor. Complementary toiletries are available to tide you over in case you’ve forgotten anything from home!
Our second bedroom contains a full sized bed and a 26-inch flat screen HDTV also. It is a cozy, intimate space to rest up and dream about your next day on Seneca Lake!
We also have a semi-private alcove with a bunk bed that is great for the kids!
Come and make Seneca Solitude your base of operations for your Finger Lakes vacation!

Why the Owner Chose Penn Yan, NY, USA:
We have been visiting the Finger Lakes area for 25 years. We began looking for a house on Seneca Lake a few years ago and finally found one that we fell in love with. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
What struck us most about this home is the amazing panoramic view from the Great Room and the gorgeous lakefront! We have completed renovations to the kitchen and bathrooms and have updated the decor and amenities. We are far enough from the main road to give you that 'getting away from it all' feeling, but close enough so that you can easily get to all the wonderful places that the Finger Lakes have to offer!
