About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, 3 Jacuzzi Suites, 2 Living Rooms, Dining Room, Sleeps 10

Originally built as the home of fruit farmer George Cortin in 1911 and later restored into an Inn for guests along the wine trail, the Inn at Chateau LaFayette Reneau has transformed over the years into what it is today: An historical and spacious five-bedroom guest house.

This charming, fully-restored farmhouse offers panoramic views of the vineyards and Seneca Lake from each room. All five bedrooms feature private baths, and three offer Jacuzzis. Other amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen Cable TVs, air conditioning, a large wrap-around deck, and a gas barbecue.

These amenities, plus original woodwork and craftsman-style architecture, create the perfect combination of simple luxury and preserved antiquity.

The wrap-around deck facing the lake is an ideal place to relax while basking in the surrounding lake and vineyard views. The vista is brilliant all day and offers magnificent sunsets. You and your guests can relish front-row seating in comfortable Adirondack chairs.

Furnished kitchen features a full set of kitchenware, pots, pans, stove, oven, and a coffeemaker. The kitchen refrigerator is perfect for keeping your food fresh, while an additional refrigerator near the main entry keeps your wine cool. Grill your meals on the outside deck and enjoy your stay!

Great location but disappointing overall

  • 2 of 5

At the onset, after seeing the house on the web site our group (8 of us) were very excited for our stay.

The house is located right on the lake on the same grounds as chateau layfette winery. At first site the large house looked intriguingly old. However upon entering, we were disappointed to see that although they knew we were coming, the house not properly cleaned and ready. It was dusty and dirty. There were dead flies everywhere ( as well as live ones). The bedroom downstairs was drafty and bed was hard and very uncomfortable. The kitchen was disgusting with uncleaned pans in oven and mouse droppings under sink. We stayed because it was too late for a group our size to go anywhere else. We made the best of it but would not rebook I believe if they had cleaned and prepared the house properly, the house would have been perfect for our stay.

The Farm house

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Seneca lake for many years and this has been one of our favorite get aways. The minute you walked into the house every details was thought of. Located close to hiking, shopping, wine/beer tasting and many awesome restaurants. We enjoyed out stay here and look forward to staying here again.
