Seneca Lake right outside your door

  • 5 of 5

We decided to have a girls weekend to go wine tasting and stayed at this 4 bedroom house. The house was right on the water with the use of a kayak and paddleboat provided. The house was clean and neat, with Ken, the owner supplying the bedding and towels if needed. Ken, was friendly and easy to work with. We had such a good time we are going to make it an annual event staying there.

My husband and I went up to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary and were not familiar with the area at all. Kenneth and his wife were so accommodating to us - suggesting dinner options and any other essentials we needed to enjoy our stay. The pictures just do not do this home justice. The home is absolutely perfect! It is perfect for a family or a few couples even. The best part was the deck and lake view. We spent lots of time out by the fire, sitting by the dock or paddle boating around the lake. If you are considering staying here DO IT! You will not regret it! We can not wait to come back....for longer next time!

We loved the cottage, the view,the area and being able to have are own bedrooms.(4)

Ken was great and gave us a bottle of local wine and brought us a fire log when we asked about lighting the fire.

Highly recommend for friends or a family vacation!

Clean, comfortable house. Friendly welcoming owners. Beautiful deck and dock to the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Easy access and parking. House is clean and has plenty of room. Kitchen is well stocked. The house has everything you would need. A closed in porch, with a great view. Easy access to lake. Plenty of outside seating, a paddle boat, and kayaks. Owners are friendly, informative about lake history. Ken and Ellen went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. We had a wonderful time, and look forward to returning again.
