About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom With Spectacular Lake View

Our “Heart’s Home” welcomes you to your home away from home vacation destination. This private, relaxing and serene home sets up on three acres of rolling greens offering million dollar lake views and spectacular sunsets over Seneca Lakes' sapphire blue waters that will blow you away! From the moment you arrive, the long driveway leading up to this home, revealing the amazing view, beautifully manicured lawn and flower gardens, you will be at peace. The one-of-a-kind view can be enjoyed from anywhere on the property, whether relaxing on the patio furniture on the spacious deck that runs the entire length of the house or from the gorgeous new resort-like in ground swimming pool/patio that sits adjacent to the home. This incredible scenic view can also be captured inside the home from the living room, kitchen & dining area, master bedroom, and the studio basement.

This home is perfectly located in the stunningly, beautiful Finger Lakes Region in Upstate New York, sandwiched between two of the largest lakes (Cayuga and Seneca) and their wineries. This home is located along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail with over 30 of the finest wineries in the state and several new breweries. It is within a mile from four of the finest award-winning wineries and a world-class regional cuisine restaurant in the Finger Lakes Region. So for those of you that would like to indulge in some wine tastings, it's a lovely walk back to the property with the phenomenal views. Cayuga Lake/Wine Trails is only 15 minutes from this home. You will not be disappointed with the location of this property. It offers you the best of both worlds!

Seneca Lake State Park/Lodi Point is only a couple miles from this home with a marina, beach, swimming and playground for the children. If you desire to relax for the day, you can unwind in your own private, newly built in ground swimming pool with diving board; throw some steaks on the gas grill and relax by the pool side patio capturing the sunset views in the evening. You may even want to have a cozy camp fire at night toasting marshmallows, relaxing under the stars and watching the fireflies light the property. On weekends, you can usually see fireworks lighting the sky over the lake from the property. The 4th of July is spectacular watching the fire works while sitting on the deck outside this home.

This 2500 sq. ft. 4 bedroom, 3 bath house is the perfect house for family gatherings, getaways, or relaxing vacation. We assure you will find a sense of comfort and peacefulness upon entering this home and may never want to return to the stress of the real world.

The master bedroom has a private bath and walk in closet. The french doors lead out to a private deck with your own intimate seating to enjoy your morning coffee or relax in the evening, taking in the amazing sun setting over the lake.

Why Brenda Teeter chose Seneca Lake

This property is located in the heart of the Finger Lakes on the Seneca Lake Wine Tour. It is a private home surrounded by beauty, relaxation, huge pool with a million dollar view.

We call it our heart's home because it was a labor of love built and designed by the two of us. This area has a lot of sentimental value to us as we both were born and raised in this small town community. We have a lot of heartfelt memories from the friendly people and the many beautiful places in the quaint town of Lodi, NY.

It is surrounded by national forests, lakes, waterfalls, wineries, hiking trails, and breathtaking sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were groups of two families from Canada and India-stayed here in this lovely home for three days. What to say!!! We were stunned with every thing-namely the view, the rooms, the kitchen, the outer deck, the pool, the ambiance, the surroundings; and over and above the meticulous care taken for every small thing required during our stay! I will definitely come here again with my other friends to visit and stay in this temple of peace.

This by far is a well appointed, beautiful and comfortable home. In the heart of the eastern shore wineries. Close by Stonecat, Dino's and Grist Iron for dining. The view of the lake is spectacular. The overall property is beautiful.

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful home. The views were absolutely stunning and the house was very comfortable. We didn't end up using the pool but would love to do so if we were given the opportunity again! You won't be disappointed if you choose this spot for your getaway!

Absolutely Awesome!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful landscaping and expansive yard greeted us upon arrival. The pool beckoned us before we even entered the home!! Once inside, we marveled at the decor and immediately felt right at home! We all loved the huge dining table, used for our gourmet meals prepared each night and cards and games throughout the day. Of course we located numerous craft breweries and wineries, our favorites included Two Goats and Wagners. We had a marvelous time and some of us even brushed up on our swimming skills, to include diving and cannon balls!! Thank you for such a wonderful time!

A beautiful home with an outstanding view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our children and grandchildren stayed at this home from July 7-11, 2016 to attend a family wedding at the Glenora winery on Seneca

Lake. My husband and I were also celebrating our anniversary with our family, and we all wanted to stay together for the weekend. This house was perfect for us. It looks exactly like the photos on the web site. It is a beautiful spacious home, perfect for 8-10 people. It is well equipped with almost everything you can imagine, and very clean. The kitchen is well stocked with small appliances, dishes, glasses ,etc. We loved the pool, and the large yard. The views of the lake from the house and the front porch are spectacular. Our first night we had a heavy rain and wind storm at about 6:30pm. Yet, we still had a beautiful sunset 2 hours later. Lodi is only about 20 minutes from Watkins Glen to the south, and Ithaca to the east. It was a 35 minute drive to the Glenora winery on the other side of the lake. There are so many wineries in the area, and many things to do. We hope to rent this house again some day. It's a special place!

Amazing home! Incredibly clean! Wish we could spend the summer there!

  • 5 of 5

Brenda and Gary are a class act. We needed a "home base" for our daughter's Finger Lakes wedding. Their home was our "home" for the long weekend. From the second you walk in the door to the minute you drive away, everything is perfect. Brenda makes sure you feel welcome. Both Gary and Brenda take pride in their home. The facilities and amenities are top notch. The furniture and furnishings are modern and amazingly clean. The grounds and pool area are beautifully landscaped. The home was so beautiful, the wedding photographer was amazed and took several pictures inside the home and of the spectacular view. It's clear that Brenda and Gary pay attention to details. We CANNOT wait to return to their beautiful home. Thank you for allowing us to share our daughter's wedding weekend with comfort and style. Michael and Jenn

Absolutely incredible!

  • 5 of 5

From the detailed communication with the homeowners to the amazing views the property offered, my friends and family were far from disappointed. The homeowners made sure that our stay was nothing but amazing--outlining major attractions, wineries, and restaurants to visit. The pool was an added attraction to the home, which we used to cool off and relax. This was the first vacation my best friend and I took together with our babies (4 and 8 month olds) and husbands and it is a place we would definitely like to return to annually. We took full advantage of the spacious kitchen and the outdoor grill. In addition to the fabulous views of the lake and surrounding area during the day, we were able to enjoy beautiful sunsets. Once again, we loved this home so much, we want to make it a tradition for our family vacations. Thanks for everything!

Heather and James S.
