"Winey Duck" is perfect for wine lovers looking to explore the Finger Lakes region and the Seneca Lake Wine Trail! Just minutes from some of the finest Seneca Lake wineries, Geneva, Penn Yan, and Watkins Glen, it’s centrally located and pet friendly too!
The main entry is in the back, and walks into an open, airy dining room with a large bay window overlooking the back yard. With dining seating for 12, there is plenty of space to enjoy a large meal and converse. The country style kitchen offers plenty of counter space and modern appliances. Just to the right of the kitchen is a spacious living room, with a large sectional sofa, comfortable arm chairs, and a flat screen TV. A full bathroom with shower/tub and laundry is located on the south side of the living room.
A small staircase splits the upper and lower bedrooms from the main floor. On the upper floor, you will find two spacious, lakeside bedrooms and a shared full bathroom with shower in the hallway. The south bedroom features a King size bed, large closet, flat screen TV and DVD player. The north bedroom offers a Queen Size bed and a comfortable single size futon chair to enjoy the lake view or use for additional sleeping.
Four steps down from the living area bring you to the lower level. A third bedroom with Queen Size bed and a flat screen TV overlooks the lake, and the fourth bedroom provides a Twin/Double bunk bed, and plenty of shelves for children’s games, books, and toys. A sitting room with a Queen futon and large bay window provides a cozy area to enjoy the lake view and for additional sleeping in the evenings.
Located just off the sitting room is a large deck with a covered walkway that wraps along the side of the house and leads to the back yard. There is a retractable awning for shade during the warmer months too! A set of stairs lead down from the deck to the hot tub under the deck and the lakefront. There is about 10 feet of natural entry into the lake, ideal for young children and pets alike! RR Tracks run behind this property.
We rented this vacation home over Thanksgiving weekend and had a delightful stay! The house was very clean and well maintained and we immediately felt right at home. We cooked our Thanksgiving dinner at the house and were very pleased with the well-stocked kitchen -- everything we needed was at our fingertips! We were very impressed with all of the kitchen equipment that Winey Duck offered. There was also plenty of room in the kitchen to have 4+ cooks at one time and sufficient counter space! The large dining room table fit our group perfectly and there was also extra seating available in the kitchen area. We brought our dog along for the weekend and found the house to be very pet-friendly. There was even a gate in the living room area that could be used to keep a pet contained to one area of the house. Another favorite aspect of the cottage was the hot tub, which was located outside on the lower level. We enjoyed the use of the hot tub each evening and had an amazing view of the lake. We would highly recommend this property to our family and friends and look forward to our next stay at Winey Duck!
This is a great cottage in a wonderful location! The cottage was spotless and very well equipped. There were even games, videos, books, and some toys if you had small children with you. The kitchen has everything you need to cook in after exploring the wineries all day. There are four nice bedrooms-three of them have a great view of the lake. The hot tub was wonderful on a chilly November weekend. The house is very roomy with a nice large deck outside. You are literally steps from the water. The pictures are very accurate. The only complaint (not really) is that the sitting room by the water was small and the main living room/dining room doesnt have a view of the lake. The large deck would make up for that in nice weather. The location is about halfway down the lake on the western side so it is close to both Geneva and Watkins Glen. It is also close to Penn Yann. The neighborhood is very peaceful. We would definitely stay here again!
