Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband Gary and I live near Buffalo, NY and own a floor covering store in Lockport NY. Nancy grew up 12 miles north of Penn Yan and is familiar with life in the Finger Lakes. We started renting a cottage on Waneta Lake in 1992 and by 2000, we were ready to buy a place of our own, and you'll find us there most weekends during the summer down the lake from the Dragonfly Inn.

Why the Owner Chose Dundee, NY, USA:
We bought this property in 2006 because we saw the potential that this house offered people who wanted to vacation with a large group. Thus The Dragonfly Inn was born. Loving the area as we do, we have had large gatherings ourselves at the cottage, so we know it works! We also fell in love with the covered ceder porch, large enough for adults to lounge while the kids play.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our cottage, in addition to having access to all fishing and water sports, is close to dozens of wineries, The Windmill outdoor market (Saturdays only), Watkins Glen Motor Speedway, Corning Glassworks, Curtis Wright museum, and festivals happening throughout the summer at neighboring lakes and villages.
