About the property

5 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath, Incredible View Of Seneca Lake And Sourrounding Vineyards

Lawson’s Place is situated in the literal heart of the Finger Lakes region of New York, an area encompassing 14 rural counties that includes eleven “finger” lakes, hundreds of waterfalls and beautiful gorges, and 25 state parks. From the stunning views seen from Lawson’s Place to the many scenic vistas found throughout the region, you will see why millions of people have fallen in love with the area’s pastoral beauty.

Lawson’s Place sits on 1.3 acres of land at 5414 State Route 14 in Dundee, NY, approximately 10 minutes north of Watkins Glen and 25 minutes south of Geneva. With incredible views of Seneca Lake from its west side, and surrounded by vineyards dotting its western and eastern shores, there will be no mistaking the fact that you will be staying in close proximity to many of the area’s iconic attractions.

This home has just been completely remodeled, and sets up extremely well for groups of up to ten, with five bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths. In addition, there is a large kitchen, a dining area, a game/computer room, and a living room, together affording ample space for your group to enjoy both privacy and group gathering areas. Cable TV, a DVD and video library, and WiFi are complimentary.

Although you are free to bring your own if you prefer, towels, washcloths and bed linens are provided. The kitchen contains the usual appliances, including a micro-wave, a dishwasher and a coffee maker, and some condiments are furnished. Also, a washer and dryer are available should you need to do laundry while here. The home is heated and cooled throughout.

Many of the area’s attractions are easily accessible from Lawson’s Place, whether your interests are focused on world-class wine and other craft food and beverage sampling, state parks and the area’s many waterfalls, museums, auto racing, agri-tourism, biking, swimming, boating and hiking, fine dining, and/or live entertainment. Literally there is something for everyone.

Great home with panoramic views of Lake Seneca and nearby vineyards.

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this home for a mini family reunion. The home was spacious, well appointed and very clean. There were 6 adults and there was more than enough space for all of us. We especially loved watching the sunrise over the lake in the morning from the porch and making s'mores by the fire pit in the evening. You can't beat the location, very close to Watkins Glen, hiking trails and restaurants. Loved it!

Awesome views neat home

  • 5 of 5

The views of the lake are wonderful. The home was perfect for our family of ten. Kitchen has very thing you need. The towels and sheets are very high quality. Easy trip to Watkins Glen or Geneva depending on where you want to go. We highly recommend Lawson’s Place!

Loved it!

Truly a lovely home - enjoyed by the entire family!

Roomy, beautifully appointed, totally comfortable, great views!!

We are here with extended family, and everyone loved it. With the freezing temps outside we only got out to explore the winery next door, but we all agree we’d love to come back in the Summer or Fall to explore more of the surrounding areas.
