About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

The 'Robin's Nest' overlooks the northeast shore of Lake Seneca and sits in the sweetspot of the fun and excitement of the Finger Lake region. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets from your private beach and dock and sip a glass of wine as you relax in the hot tub at the end of a busy day.

We are a short drive to over 30 local wineries bordering Seneca, Keuka, and Cayuga lakes. We are 15 minutes away from the City of Geneva and many local restaurants, stores, and shopping areas.

Hobart and William Smith Colleges are close by offering many cultural and athletic activities and venues. We are a short drive to many local farmers markets where you can shop for fresh fruits and vegetables.

We are centrally located to Watkins Glen Speedway, Watkins Glen State Park, Taughhannock Falls, Montour Falls, and Sampson State Park.

There is ample parking for vehicles and a boat trailer, and you can unload your belongings under a covered patio without climbing stairs. There is a huge lawn area on the other side of a lazy private drive perfect for summer games and activities with the kids.

Enter the cottage into a large living room with a large flat screen TV, and a spiral staircase to a loft bedroom with a queen size bed and a half bath. A full kitchen, dining room and full bathroom are on the ground floor. There are two downstairs bedrooms; one with a full size bed, and the other bedroom has a futon pullout bed.

On the lakeside, relax in the sunroom or sit on the deck as you enjoy the fabulous sunsets. At the lakeside, enjoy the areas best fishing or just chill in the evening as you 'fire up' the bar-b-que pit and roast s'mores as your young ones wait for that special summer treat!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Robin and Peter live year round in the Hudson Valley area of New York. They have managed vacation rentals in other areas of the state for over 20 years. They have many friends and family in the Rochester area, and they plan on spending more time in the Finger Lakes in the years ahead.

Why the Owner Chose Geneva, NY, USA:
Robin and Peter have boated on the Hudson River and beyond for the last twenty years and they intend to continue their boating adventures as they spend more time in the Finger Lakes area. Well..their lakehouse fits the bill! The 'Robin's Nest' is not only in the 'sweetspot' of most Finger Lakes activity, but its dock and lake frontage is minutes from the Seneca-Cayuga Canal which links Lake Seneca to Cayuga Lake, the Erie Canal, the Great Lakes, and eventually to the St. Lawrence Seaway! As they say...location, location, location!!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Exceptional fishing, boating, sporting activities from your own private dock on Lake Seneca, in the heart of New York State's Wine Country, minutes from robust wineries, local colleges, fruit stands and farmers markets? It doesn't get any better than this!
