About Michael Lucent
Year Purchased: 2011 About the owner: Michael & Donna were young childhood sweethearts and then parted ways shortly after high school graduation. They each led separate lives until a mere 25 years later Michael ran into Donna; and their romance started right up where it left off! They shortly married and honeymooned in the Finger Lakes. After visiting some wineries, Donna & Michael decided this would be the perfect 'New Way of Life,' running a winery together. They figured working together would be a fabulous way to make up for lost time! In 2000 they bought the winery property, and turned their life's mission into learning how to start a winery---Michael was already an accomplished winemaker for the past 25 years. Fast forward to 2008 the Pompous Ass Winery opened. Both Michael & Donna are whimsical; which they wanted to portray in their theme. As you can see the picture above, they are posing with 'Sir Jackson' the handsome character also known as 'The Pompous Ass.'
Michael Lucent purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Michael Lucent chose Rock Stream
Last year in 2011, two house flanking either side of the winery property we put up for sale. Michael & Donna decided to purchase both to protect their investment; which now begs the question as what to do with these two houses? After some deliberation, they decided to renovate and use them for weekly rentals; after all, they live in a tourist area and they are located right on the Seneca Lake Wine trail. Every detail was by their design, having the importance of both convenience and comfort as their top priory. A house fit for a pompous ass was their motto; which is why they lovingly named the houses,' Jackie A's Cottage' and the 'Sir Jackson House.'
What makes this Cottage unique
This Cottage is perfectly located right on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, on the west side of the lake. This house has everything a family of 4 or 2 couples could ever need to enjoy a Finger lakes get away. It has air conditioning in every room, central hot air heat, plenty of hot water, a state of the art water purification and softening system. Beautifully furnishes through out and newly refinished hardwood floors. There is a large covered deck in the back of the cottage to enjoy cookouts, fun and relaxation.

Cute, clean cottage in a great location!
The cottage was a perfect size for our family of four including our two children ages 10 and 5 yrs. It was clean and spacious and had a nice sized yard in the back with a covered deck and a grill for enjoying meals outside. The location next to Lake Seneca was perfect for hitting some of the top wineries in the Finger Lakes and Watkins Glen town and State Park was just a few miles south. Great restaurants in town and hiking at the park was amazing. Driving over to Ithaca and visiting Lake Cayuga was only 30 minutes away and the beautiful scenery made driving a pleasure. We had such an amazing time hiking at Watkins Glen, Robert Treman and Buttermilk Falls. Had some wonderful lunches at restaurants along Lake Seneca. My wife and I loved visiting the wineries and the kids loved all the ice cream places of which most featured homemade ice cream since so many dairy farms around. We also visited Shtayburne Farm just down the road from the cottage. Great homemade cheeses, jams, hot sauces and more. Also visited a couple of other farms featuring homemade cheeses. Wonderful stay in the Finger Lakes and Jackie O's cottage was a great place at a very reasonable price. For the record, I thought the TV had plenty of channels though I wasn't there to watch much TV. We enjoyed playing board games with our kids at night and to get away from TV and electronics. My only gripe was that the pillows weren't soft but for those that like firm pillows you'll love them!
