About the property

Newly Rebuilt 3 Bedroom 2 Bathroom Year Round House On Seneca Lake.

The Serenity Zen House is uniquely perched overlooking Seneca Lake. This is the ideal spot for a get-away in the Finger Lakes. There are several excellent wineries within a mile of the house and it is close to all the Finger Lakes attractions. Great for families, couples and groups just looking to get away for a few days of fun. Only 10 minutes from Hobart and William Smith.

There is a large kitchen overlooking the lake. The living room has a gas burning fireplace with a cathedral ceiling and a gorgeous view of the lake.

The master suite features a king size bed and provides an unsurpassed sunrise views over the lake. There is a queen in one guest room and a full-size bed in the other guest room. Roll-away beds are also available.

There are two modern baths with a tub/shower in the guest bath and a large shower with seat in the master bath.

The home features extensive multi-level decks overlooking the lake,

There is a private beach with access down a set of stairs and the beach has a gentle slope into the lake for wading and swimming.

Located on a town road the home is very easy to access and is conveniently located just 10 miles south of Geneva and 25 miles north of Watkins Glen in the heart of the Finger Lakes wine region.

We had a great time. The view was unbelievable! We would love to come again in the summer when we can sit on the deck in the evening and enjoy our catch (wine) of the day!

Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the location and cleanliness of this property. Its location on Seneca Lake is convenient to Geneva, Watkins Glen and many of the regional vineyards. The house was spotless and well appointed. The multi story deck was perfect for viewing sunrises and evening sunset on the lake. Although we never met the owner (Jim), he was very helpful with the booking process and had the house open for us when we arrived. Little touches like providing fresh ice, bottled water and a working propane gas stainless steel grill were appreciated. The security deposit was refunded in full the day after we left. We would definitely stay here again on a return trip to the area.

Great location. very nice and well mantained house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the area, the house is located on a beautiful secluded drive, on the Seneca Lake. you can enjoy the moon rise as well as the sun rise if you are up early. there is a nice deck and even a small private beach at the bottom of a nice stairway.

short drives to the wineries or the beautiful park in Watkins Glenn.

Jim, very courteous host, ready to help if needed.

The house was clean with everything you could need, even filters for the coffeemaker?

  • 4 of 5

We crossed railroad tracks to get to the house which worried us a little. I'm happy to say we had about 2 short trains a day. One was in the evening and made little noise. The other was at night, but only lasted a minute.

The deck was wonderful! It's nice to welcome the day and end the day looking out at the lake and listening to the birds.
