About David Soule

I grew up spending my summers on Keuka Lake where my parents now live year round. The Finger Lakes have a very special place in my heart. I teach ESL in a neighboring community. A world-traveler, I thrive on many cultures and languages. I speak French and Spanish fluently. I welcome guests from other lands!!

David Soule purchased this house in 2015

Why David Soule chose Seneca Falls

This place is within close reach of so much of the Finger Lakes...Ithaca (Cornell University), Geneva (Hobart and William Smith Colleges), Canandaigua...and Seneca Falls is a real gem with its local wineries, lake living, and many recreational opportunities with the vast waterway access. Having recently surprised my son, I am very glad.... It is my heart, soul, and hard-work that provides me this blessing for which I am most grateful. My goal is to make your stay very enjoyable. Hope you will return and provide me with quality feedback, too!

What makes this house unique

I told my realtor that when I look out the windows, my blood pressure (although not high) seems to drop, and I feel more relaxed. The sound of the water bathing the shoreline is so peaceful, and the views are just amazing. So far, I've witnessed a storm come across the lake (wow!), and my neighbor Jennifer has told me to be on the watch-out for Bald eagles and Osprey, which she has personally viewed from her front window, and perched on the large Oak tree between our houses...ohh!! The trees are so beautiful with so much character!

Perfect place to relax, enjoy Cayuga lake and wine.

  • 5 of 5

Great little place right on the water. Nice deck and dock to lounge on. 2 kayaks available to play with, along with a couple small tubes. Less than a 10min walk to beach or restaurant. Many winerys and a few breweries within 30min drive. Owner was very easy to deal with. Quick and easy communication. Place was stocked with everything you need. Would definitely go back.

My Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a small family or a couple. My husband and I spent most of our time alone and it was perfect. Quiet, relaxing and easy to block out the rest of the world. LOVE the location on Lower Lake Road. The water front was great as I love to be in the water! The decks were great. David was excellent and attentive to everything, quickly and thoroughly. He respected our privacy and communicated with me throughout the year and during our stay. The neighbor is very nice and we felt very welcome. I walked the road everyday and people waved and were courteous. Love the proximity to Seneca Falls, the outlets, Sauders, Syracuse and Rochester. Love the Deerhead and Wolfy's restaurants on the same road. Beautiful inside and laying in bed looking out at the water will be my happy place now. Thanks, David!!!
