2 bedrooms, 1 pull out sofa, 2 full bathrooms, 6 people max

Beautiful 5+ home on Seneca lake, with an unbelievable lake view from the large 235' flat waterfront property. A small 15 mph lakeside road is quiet and convenient for walking to the nearby 2 restaurants for food and/or drinks, as well as a great waterside stroll! This completely newly renovated home is cozy and comfortable for a peaceful getaway from home for all seasons. Enjoy the fireplace & heat during cold winter months or large windows for spring and summer air. All furnishings, appliances, and bedding are new. Hardwood floors. Enjoy the huge landscaped flat yard for family gatherings and yard games. The gazebo is perfect for dining outdoors. Or spend the day relaxing sitting in the phenomenal, large 14x16' pavilion with comfortable furniture and a hammock surrounded by flowers. Make your own bonfire in the stone 6' fire pit for an evening of relaxation with a view of the lake. Enjoy two kayaks and a rowboat for water fun. Best rental around!

Beautiful home with great views

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at this wonderful home. The yard is spacious with lots of seating areas to relax and enjoy the lake view. The fire pit is great for the cool fall evenings.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need. Spacious bedrooms, living room and kitchen. Very nicely decorated. Definitely would stay here again!

Fabulous rental home

  • 5 of 5

We came across this rental last year while staying at another home. We loved the outside and decided to book it for our vacation this year, so glad we did !!! This vacation home is unbelievable And Chris the owner is wonderful. She even worked with us when we had a little discrepancy on our check in date, totally our fault too !!!

The house is cozy and very spacious, and totally stocked with everything you could imagine, you don't need to bring a thing except your food and personal items, NOT A THING !!! We did the wineries almost every day since that's our thing but there's so many other options near by. The lake is literally steps from the yard. We sat by the fire pit and grilled almost every night.

You can't go wrong booking this home, we look forward to our return.

Spacious with all the amenities you want.

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for those who want close and easy access to Seneca Lake. The description and pictures of the house and property were exactly what we found. The owner is delightful and very attentive to your needs and to what makes for a great vacation. The house is well stocked so you don't have to pack a lot of extras. We enjoyed the breeze off the lake while sitting under the gazebo and also while sitting on the dock watching the sail boats. When it got too hot to sit out we traveled to Corning Glass and also visited the wineries for their wine or hard cider tastings.

Charming, Fantastic Lake House

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic lake house for our 2 week stay!! We couldn't have asked for more during our stay. Chris was great both before and during our stay, and the house and property more than lived up to expectations. Everyone of our visitors (and us) could not believe all of the amenities provided, and all wished they could have stayed more than the few days that they did. The kayaks, dock, gazebo area, huge yard and fire pit gave us many options to explore everyday -- sunrise at the gazebo or dock, days kayaking, biking, swimming with our dog or exploring the local wineries, and evenings grilling and sitting by a fire. Watkins Glen and Geneva are nearby for dining options, and one stop at Mr Twistees will certainly be followed by another.

We will be sure to be back, as we can't imagine another property having everything that this one does!

I can't say enough about Chris' home. My girlfriend and I have made it a yearly trip to Seneca Lake following Christmas. Instead of staying in an overpriced hotel (and having to travel 20-30 minutes AWAY from the lake just to GET to the hotel), we decided to see what properties were available ON the lake.

We found Chris' home, and opted to take my girlfriend's parents with us. The four of us had a WONDERFUL time. If this home were any closer to the lake, you'd need oars to get to the bathroom. It is extremely spacious and has a very "warm" feel. We didn't feel like we were "visiting," we felt like we LIVED on the lake.

Add the fact that Chris allowed our new Chocolate Lab puppy to join us (and had two different sized metal crates on the property), and our weekend excursion couldn't have been any better.

We will be staying at Chris' home whenever we visit Seneca Lake (or ANY of the Finger Lakes, for that matter) in the future. We encourage you to do the same!

Our Favorite Place To Stay in The Finger Lakes....

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our second visit at your beautiful home. We've been at other rentals, because your place was booked, and NONE of them can compare to "The Snedeker House." It was like coming home again :-). Loved what you've done with the yard. How nice to be in the living room and be able to see the beautiful lake and then turn around and see how nicely decorated the yard was with the table, chairs and plants. You have thought of everything. If possible, the kitchen was even more stocked than our previous stay, amazing!!!!. The new TV in the back bedroom was a nice addition.

Weather permitted and we all really enjoyed sitting outside for "Happy Hour" one evening and watching the lake scenery.

We hope that availability will permit us to stay at your beautiful home again next year.
