Property description

'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!
