About the Property

3 bedroom house plus 1 bedroom guest cottage and great lakefront rec room

Newly painted and decorated, this spacious A-frame chalet sits on a landscaped and tree-filled acre + and features an oversized great room, plus a large eat-in kitchen and master suite on the main level, all with great lake views and each with its own access to a separate deck or patio. Kitchen deck has plenty of room for dining, sunning, etc., while the master bedroom deck has a roomy jetted hot tub. Step from the great room’s french doors onto a flagstone patio perfect for reading and lake-gazing. Upstairs are two cozy bedrooms plus a new full bath.

-Charming separate guest cottage, freshly painted and decorated has a combination livingroom/efficiency kitchen, with a separate bedroom and full bath. This cottage also has a huge deck with an amazing lake view. It can be rented for an additional $500/week (only with main house rental).

-Private lakefront has a huge rec room with shuffleboard and air hockey games, a bar area with refrigerator, and plenty of seating. 2 large docks for sunning and diving into the lake, complete with 2 electric boat lifts.

-Fish right off the docks. Traditionally, lake trout, smallmouth bass and yellow perch have been the mainstay of Seneca Lake's fishery. In the decades since the first survey of the lake in 1927, other species have also contributed prominently, including rainbow trout, brown trout, landlocked atlantic salmon, northern pike and largemouth bass.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: We live on Long Island and just recently purchased this wonderful property after looking for several years for the perfect lakefront vacation retreat. Hunter's Grace is named after our beloved 14 year old Weimaraner Hunter, who recently passed. He never got to see the house, but we know he would have loved it. We also have Gracie, a 10 year old female Weimaraner who is presently battling brain cancer, and a 15 year old cat Harley. Presently, and until we move there permanently, we are happy to share our home with you.

Why the Owner Chose Rock Stream, NY, USA:
The property had so much to offer and "something" led us there...many signs pointed to this wonderful family home. We felt a connection immediately the first time we went there and knew it was the right home for us. The owners were broken-hearted that they were leaving, and we understood why.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
"THE HANGAR" makes this property truly unique. A 1200' re-purposed seaplane hangar provides a great gathering place for all ages to enjoy the lake together. Regulation size shuffleboard table with electronic scoring, air hockey table, bar area with refrigeration and the most incredible view you can imagine.
