Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, Sleeps 4-6

'Journey's End' is truly a one of kind cottage/bungalow that offers a traditional/quaint vacation experience while providing 'state of the art' conveniences to the guests.

It is located at the very end of a well maintained access road in a very secluded and private section of Hansen Harbor. 'Journey's End' is also conveniently situated smack in the heart of the NYS Wine Belt. Upon your arrival, you will immediately be struck by the the magnificent panoramic view of Seneca Lake at it's widest point.

The cottage has three bedrooms and two full baths, a full kitchen with breakfast bar and a combined living and dining area all of which were constructed to take full advantage of the spectacular lake view. Each of the front bedrooms provide spectacular views of the lake while the rear bedroom looks out into a raised flower garden and wooded ravine.

Just a mere five steps down to the beach and your ready to swim, sunbathe, fish, kayak, you name it! This property boasts 90 feet of some of the most level and pristine beach frontage in the area. Perfect for launching one of the properties kayaks, rowboat or paddle boat. Ideal for family's with small children.

At night... bonfires on the beach! A traditional beach fire pit at waters edge, great for roasting marshmallows, telling ghost stories or just enjoying a romantic evening by the water.

Perhaps beach activities aren't your cup of tea. Well then... you can pack up your radio and suntan lotion and take a stroll out to the end of the 100 foot aluminum dock. Now here... you will truly experience a breathtaking view and be able to totally relax surrounded by the serenity and calm of the wind, sun and water. Is that glorious sunshine making things a little warm? Take a dive off the dock (purposely constructed low to the water) for a refreshing dip in the crystal clear water, where the water depth is a comfortable five foot (average seasonal depth at the end of the dock is approximately five feet, but can vary depending on amount of rainfall during the rental season).

Or Maybe you just wanna kickback in one of the eucalyptus Adirondack chairs under the shade of the covered deck for an afternoon snooze. Or catch up on a good book, while enjoying a glass of one of the area's world famous wines produced, literally, just down the road.

Whatever your preference, we are confident that 'Journey's End' will provide you with a most enjoyable and memorable vacation experience!

Great Panoramic View!!!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the Lake, especially my 5 year old...she asked if this could be our Home!!! :) Weather held up and being out on the paddle boat was great! We took a brunch cruise at "Captain Bill's (great!) and fell in love with a local wine! Was awesome for family get together! Only wish it was bigger to bring more family members next time.

Wonderful Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We prefer to rent homes/condos rather than stay in hotels while traveling so we're quite experienced with the process, properties, and owners. So far, this home and owners are the best we've ever encountered. The home and grounds are the cleanest and most well-maintained and the owners continuously strive to improve it. We have rented this location three times and are looking forward to many more stays in the future. Highly recommended!

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We (3 couples) stayed here for the first two nights our motorcycle tour of parts of the US and Canada. It was a jaw-dropping moment when we arrived - just spectacular - and a really great place to Stay. Ed was really helpful throughout the booking and the stay, and being able to get out on the lake in row boats and kayaks, followed by BBQs at the water's edge topped it off. We wish we'd had longer to stay.

Journey's End is the Best!

  • 5 of 5

Just priceless!! The cottage was very comfortable, and the lake was amazing. We woke up to views steps from Seneca Lake’s edge that only our eyes could capture. It was a beautiful October weekend with above average temperatures and that just enhanced our stay. Cozy, clean, and well stocked for us to unwind; Bud and Roseann went out of their way to make us feel at home. Journey's End exceeded our expectations! If you are looking for a quiet, beautiful cottage in the Finger Lakes, I highly recommend Journey’s End.
