GREAT Family house!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED Seneca Shores!!! We had three generations on our vacation and it was accommodating for us all! We especially liked the three master suites and two/three other rooms for sleeping. The yard is AMAZING!! We played soccer, croquet, all kinds of yard games. The interior is spacious with two large living rooms and another room off the kitchen for reading, etc. The deck is also quite large and we took full advantage of the outdoor dining availability. We'd highly recommend this house for larger families. It's also close to many fine wineries, which we enjoyed immensely. We also like the convenience of grocery and drug stores in Dundee. They were about a 10 minute ride away. This was one of our BEST vacations EVER!

We understand how important and special it is to spend quality time with your family (all 3 generations!). We are so happy that Seneca Shores provided all the space you and your family needed to enjoy your time at the lake. The central location makes visiting local attractions much easier; especially when traveling with a large group. We enjoyed having you here and hope you come back and see us again very soon
