About Lisa Harrington
We savor our time on Seneca Lake with friends and family, creating wonderful memories with our three children. We enjoy the clean cool waters and the peaceful surroundings, as well as the wonderful wineries and restaurants. We enjoy making constant improvements to our all-wood home (with an interior full of that rich wood smell) and look forward to sharing our lake side retreat with you.
Lisa Harrington purchased this House in 2011
Why Lisa Harrington chose Fayette
We purchased this home from a family who built it together by hand, and we hope to maintain the wonderfully warm and inviting feel. The view of the lake from this home is so inspirational, the waters are clean, refreshing and replenishing. Besides relaxing and taking in the beautiful surroundings, there are various water sports to be enjoyed --boating, sailing, canoeing--there are over 37 wonderful wineries peppered around the lake, local dairy farms for cheese and ice cream tasting, local parks and beaches, biking and hiking paths, restaurants, spas, water parks, even Waterloo Outlet Mall is close for rainy days. We hope to retire in this lake home someday. With three children and a family landscaping business we are limited in the time that we spend at the lake. Therefore, we are renting it to allow others the opportunity to enjoy the peaceful setting on the water---renting also helps pay the taxes and maintenance costs. So please enjoy the all wood home and the stars - the quiet and the lake.
What makes this House unique
With the low ambient light you will see lots of stars. Just walk out the door onto the deck and look up - millions of stars and the sound of waves. In the winter enjoy all the wild waterfowl from all over North America - Seneca Lake does not freeze so enjoy all the waterfowl wintering over - including lots of loons. See Osprey and bald eagles fish and fly. This is a place of peace and quiet - of nature and when inside the wood smell and sight gives a comfort to all.

Winter Work Retreat
Beautiful property on the lake-- You gotta love winter though if you go then. Down a country road and a steep hill to the house in snow- make sure you have 4 wheel drive if you stay in winter in upstate NY. Very comfortable property for probably 8-10 people. We had 7. Very pleasant stay . Perfect retreat house. Owners are super nice and responsive.
AMAZING beyond words!
Our family of 7 stayed in this property for a special event. We were used to a "woods" environment for this family time in the past.......but moving to this lakeview property was beyond all expectations. The view cannot even be described properly - it is priceless. The interior, as pictures show and is described, is all wood which gives it a very cabin feel. And the layout gives everyone the opportunity to be together with the open kitchen/eating area/main living room, while also letting them all have their space with the incredible walkout basement space. Two people watched a movie in the basement, while our teenager used his playstation up in his bedroom, and the other was sprawled on a couch. The property was very clean and well stocked. The dining table is very big - perfect for families! Furniture all very comfortable. It was 26 degreees when we were there, so we did not get too much outdoor usage, but did skip some rocks on the water and did enjoy a fabulous campfire! I can't even imagine the beauty of using the outdoors more in a warmer month. The owners are FANTASTIC - kind, helpful, great communication! Highly recommend this property!!
Great family vacation!
There are 13 of us and there was plenty of space. We enjoyed the closeness of the lake and enjoyed the paddle boat and the boards. Our 2 year old loved the play kitchen! The location is great since there are many things to do, whether it is wine tasting or doing activities with the entire family. We would love to do it again!
All Well Done
Enjoyed the house and it’s amenities. Plenty of living space with big bonus room in basement allowing our large group to spread out. Lakefront was accessible with available canoe and paddle boards which we thoroughly enjoyed.
We had a wonderful experience! The house was very clean and organized and the lake access was very well maintained! Working with Lisa and Kevin was a breeze. Would absolutely recommend staying at this property!
Great fireworks displays on holidays right from the dock, go from Seneca Lake all the way to the ocean - connected to the canal system, Watkins Glen at south end of lake so world class NASCAR, Hobart and William Smith Colleges 10 minutes away, Syracuse and Rochester less than an hour away.
