Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Michael & Donna were young childhood sweethearts and then parted ways shortly after high school graduation. They each led separate lives until a mere 25 years later Michael ran into Donna; and their romance started right up where it left off! They shortly married and honeymooned in the Finger Lakes. After visiting some wineries, Donna & Michael decided this would be the perfect 'New Way of Life,' running a winery together. They figured working together would be a fabulous way to make up for lost time! In 2000 they bought the winery property, and turned their life's mission into learning how to start a winery---Michael was already an accomplished winemaker for the past 25 years. Fast forward to 2008 the Pompous Ass Winery opened. Both Michael & Donna are whimsical; which they wanted to portray in their theme. As you can see the picture above, they are posing with 'Sir Jackson' the handsome character also known as 'The Pompous Ass.'
Michael Lucent purchased this cottage in 2011
Last year in 2011, two house flanking either side of the winery property we put up for sale. Michael & Donna decided to purchase both to protect their investment; which now begs the question as what to do with these two houses? After some deliberation, they decided to renovate and use them for weekly rentals; after all, they live in a tourist area and they are located right on the Seneca Lake Wine trail. Every detail was by their design, having the importance of both convenience and comfort as their top priory. A house fit for a pompous ass was their motto; which is why they lovingly named the houses,' Jackie A's Cottage' and the 'Sir Jackson House.'
This Cottage is perfectly located right on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, on the west side of the lake.
This house has everything a family of 4 or 2 couples could ever need to enjoy a Finger lakes get away. It has air conditioning in every room, central hot air heat, plenty of hot water, a state of the art water purification and softening system.
Beautifully furnishes through out and newly refinished hardwood floors.
There is a large covered deck in the back of the cottage to enjoy cookouts, fun and relaxation.
We stayed at this cottage for 4 days and our stay was wonderful. The cottage is very close to Watkins Glen and all the Seneca Lake wineries. The cottage is clean, bright and nicely maintained. Kitchen is well-equipped and linens are of great quality. Loved the deck and the backyard, too. The only minor drawback is the little noise from the vehicles on rt 14 is heard in front part of the house but it wasn't bothering. We had a perfect stay here and enjoyed fall colors with wine tastings.
My husband and I are from Maine, my brother in law and his wife are from Ohio. This was the half way place for us to meet for wine tasting. Cottage was adorable and very well maintained. Had everything that you needed for a comfortable stay. A special thank you to Lauren for all her help she is very kind and responds to emails very quick. I would stay again, but next year there will be many more of us.
This cottage was perfect for a long weekend with friends! It is centrally located to all of the wineries and breweries in the Seneca Lake area. There is so much to do and see in Watkins Glen and the views are incredible!!! There are excellent restaurants also. Our favorites are Jerlandos, The Decoy and Nichols BBQ Pit. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The air conditioners kept us cool. There was plenty of water pressure and hot water for our showers every morning. We would rent this this cottage again.
I am a physics professor at a private university in Pennsylvania and my colleagues and I rented both cabins owned by the Pompous Ass Winery for our student research retreat this year (3 professors and 8 students). Our four day stay was both productive and entertaining. The houses are both cozy and modern, with a whimsical mix of period decor and brand new appliances. We plugged our laptops into the large TV and gave research talks for one day and spent the rest enjoying the houses as well as nearby attractions including local Wineries, shopping in Watkins Glenn, and hiking on the gorgeous gorge trails of Watkins Glen State Park. There were amazing Mennonite food shops nearby with tons of delicious foodstuffs which we easily prepared in the well stocked and comfortable kitchens. Plus with the Pompous Ass Winery next door (and a discount on wine for guests) we were never lacking for delicious wine. We concluded with a cookout using the fantastic new gas grills at both houses. Both the owners as well as the friendly staff (especially Lauren!) at the Pompous Ass were very accommodating and helpful, directing us to local attractions and resources to make our stay the best it can be. This is the second year in a row that we have booked these properties for our academic retreat and the experience has become integral to kickstarting our summer research season. I highly recommend these homes to anybody looking for the perfect getaway allowing an ideal balance of work and play!
Comfortable place for spending a weekend touring the many wineries and breweries in the Watkins Glen area. Very clean, warm and quiet space. We felt right at home.
This was our first time renting a house instead of hotel rooms when visiting Seneca Lake. We will rent a house from now on! The cottage was very clean and we were able to check in early. The beds were comfortable, bathroom updated, nice flat screen TV, dvds to watch and the kitchen was well equipped. Non stick cook ware would be nice and a TV in the bedrooms. Otherwise, we had a great time and will return!
