Perfect place for Seneca Lake vacation

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 nights enjoying the great view of Seneca Lake. Huge deck overlooks the lake with steps down to shore deck and dock. House was well equipped. Gas grill was great. Beds were comfortable. Rented kayaks and that worked out great. Everything is as advertised, no complaints. Would definitely return.

Wonderful home with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house! The weather was great, so a lot of time was spent out on the deck and down by the water. The house itself was clean and well maintained with lots of seating! The master bedroom fit a pack and play for our 9 month old and having the chair in there really helped with the bedtime routine! James (owner) was very responsive if we needed anything. The jugs of water were a nice touch :).

The only hiccup was the train going by at 2AM with the windows wide open. Scared the heck out of the baby. But that only happened one night.

Overall we had a great time and will likely be back again!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We came a family of 5 with one kid (4 year old). He loved the train that goes by in the evening.

We had a great time in the area it is close to Watkins Glen and a short drive to Geneva near by.

Great value for money and had everything we could wish for.

Clean and organized.
