About the property

Well- Equipped Lakefront Cottage- 3 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Bathrooms- Sleeps 8

If you want to get away from it all, make wonderful memories with family, friends or significant other, then 'Sunset Cottage' is for you. Our ranch style cottage is cheerful, clean and inviting. Whether you are sipping a cup of coffee as the sun rises or having a glass of wine as the sun sets, you will completely feel at peace here. In no time, you will understand why we recently purchased this beautiful cottage after renting it for several years.

Nestled in the heart of wine country, we are centrally located on the east side of Seneca Lake in Lodi, NY. Take a three minute stroll to Lodi State Park, where there are playgrounds, picnic tables and a splendid view of Seneca Lake. The cottage is located on a dead end street with limited traffic. The area is a very quiet and peaceful place, where friends, families or couples can stay for a nice, relaxing time. The cottage is also a short fifteen minute drive to Cayuga Lake. We are conveniently located near several wineries, breweries and distilleries. Just a few minutes south of Lodi, is the quaint town of Watkins Glenn, where there are several restaurants, shops and a Walmart. Head north of Lodi to the charming town of Geneva and enjoy the many wineries. Stop at Three Brothers Wineries to hear a live band or if you prefer, take a pleasant drive back to the cottage and enjoy all the amenities it has to offer.

The parking area is to the left and right of the house. Parking is for a total of three cars or two cars and a boat trailer. There is more parking available at Lodi State Park. As you enter this lovely cottage, you will immediately feel at home. The large windows and extensive lighting brightens the whole cottage so nicely. The open floor plan makes this home extra special. Straight ahead is the beautiful, updated kitchen with a stunning panoramic view of the lake. To the left is a bedroom with two twin beds and a half bathroom. The bedroom has a closet and a nice view of the lake. A laundry room is to the left of the bathroom. To the right of the kitchen is the dining area and living room. The dining area seats six. If necessary, a drop leaf table offers two more seats. The living room is very comfortable and spacious, with it's beautiful cathedral ceilings. Large glass sliding doors allow the guests to enjoy the wonderful view of Seneca Lake. There are two sofas (1 of them is a sleeper sofa) and a futon. There are many cable channels to watch on the brand new 48 inch flat screen LED TV. There is also a wide assortment of games, DVDs, books and puzzles in the credenza. To the right of the living room are two more bedrooms. The first bedroom has a great view of the lake, full bathroom, king size bed and walk-in closet. The other bedroom has a bathroom with toilet, shower, queen size bed and closet. The house has central air and heat. In addition to this, there are two Hunter ceiling fans in the living room area. A large sliding glass door leads you to the peaceful screened in porch which has a picnic table and 4 chairs to relax and enjoy the breathtaking view.

The natural level lakefront is a huge plus. There are no steps, just walk a few feet to pure paradise. You can sit by the fire or sit on the private covered dock and watch boats go by and kayakers have fun. If you have your own boat, there is a boat lift for an additional cost. There are three kayaks for your own use and enjoyment. Take advantage of the beautiful clean, shale based lake and go for a cool, refreshing swim. As the sun begins to set and nightfall will soon be upon you, sit on the dock and take in the incredible, breathtaking view of the sun setting over Seneca Lake. A perfect end to a perfect day is to relax by the fire, listen to the rippling sound of the water and gaze at the spectacular stars.

Life is good at 'Sunset Cottage'. We realize how important it is for you to enjoy your time at the cottage. Your happiness is very important to us too. We will make every effort to keep you very happy at 'Sunset Cottage'. Cheers!

Perfect lakeside getaway!

Had a girls weekend with high school friends and couldn't have picked a better spot! Wineries and breweries nearby, and a peaceful spot on Seneca Lake for making new memories. We will be back!

Sunset Cottage is a cozy and relaxing place on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We always enjoy staying at Sunset Cottage. It's always very clean and quiet, and it's on the lake. It doesn't get any better! It has a well equipped kitchen if you want to prepare your own meals. There are many wineries, restaurants, craft breweries, and events in the area. The sunsets are truly AMAZING!!!!!

Comfortable and had everything we needed! Right on the lake with the most amazing sunsets!

Well maintained on a quiet street, close to a state park. Spacious rooms, comfy beds, a well stocked kitchen. Convenient location. We chose location for a girl's trip to the Finger Lakes and found this to be the perfect.

Fabulous vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting this cottage for several years each fall, and it is always fabulous. The cottage (really a house) is spotless, very well equipped, and beautifully located. With the beach just steps to the water, you can enjoy the lake from the screened in porch, rain or shine. It is a short walk to Lodi Point State Park, and a longer hike to the new winery that just opened. Our annual visit is one of the highlights of our year.

Our family of six - two adults & four children, ages 10-19, stayed at the Brown's Seneca Lake home for a week this August. We have rented many, many homes and condos over the years due to our large family size, and this one was up there with the best. From the moment we opened the door, it was like I stepped into a heavenly dream. The VIEWS!! The CLEANLINESS!! The SPACE!! The AMENITIES!! The COMFORT!! There's a huge screened-in porch AND a covered deck! We loved using their three kayaks. I was amazed at how warm the water was for swimming. We loved our nightly bonfires overlooking the lake and gorgeous sunsets. There is fun family stuff to do in the area. We hiked Watkins Glen (bucket list activity); went horseback riding for the first time @ D&K in Lodi; played tennis and basketball at So. Seneca High School (plus they have awesome outdoor workout equipment); played mini-golf, ping pong, pool, & air hockey @ Sampson State Park (there are $5 bike rentals and lots of trails too, but that day they only had 5 bikes available). There's a big grassy park with a nice playground a short walk away--Lodi Point--perfect for Frisbee or any sport. We've always gone to the ocean, but this vacation changed us. We've made some of the best memories here at the Brown's lovely home and miss being there very much. Like others have mentioned, they have stocked their home with so many nice surprises--stationary, medical supplies, games, movies, pool noodles, toiletries, etc--that it felt luxurious. Highly recommended!
