Why Meg Cecere chose Geneva

This was our main residence. We then decided to move across the lake to a home with more land and started planting Italian red varieties of grapes. Shortly after, we built Ventosa Vineyards & Winery where all of our grapes are 100% estate grown, produced and bottled. We loved this house and could never sell it, so we rent so others can enjoy it too!

What makes this house unique

Large space that was completely remodeled in an area with something always going on! Most of our customers come back every year and we're sure you will be back too!

Perfect set-up for 4 couples - Wine Country Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room for four couples - shared all meals at the large dining table, enjoyed time out on the dock on the lake, the wine trail, cooked on the grill, had a camp fire at night, enjoyed every bit of it. We'll definitely return with family and friends.

Beautiful house with great view and great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of seven staying at the house so we could attend a wedding at Bellhurst Castle. The location was perfect, the owners were great to work with, the amenities were great, and the view was beautiful. The house has PLENTY of room so that you do not feel cramped. The kitchen had everything that you would need for meals. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it for anyone coming to the area.

Great location and amazing house

  • 5 of 5

A little hard to get in touch with the owner through the HomeAway app. But once you do she is extremely helpful! The house was beautiful and perfect for the eight people we had. Great location with wineries all around you. Amazing views also - right in the water! Overall amazing place to stay with a larger group!

This was by far one of the nicest VRBO's we have stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

There were 9 of us and we all had plenty of room. The kitchen was fully equipped. Plenty of towells and linens. The views of the lake from inside and out on the deck were beautiful. We went to numerous vinyards and the best was Ventosa Vineyard which is owned by the owner of the house. This one must be on the top of the list. Looking forward to our next visit. Thanks Meg for the great time!

Bill and Linda from Wind Lake, WI.

Crazy Cove was Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage for the week leading up to our daughter's wedding. We entertained family and friends throughout the week and everyone had an enjoyable time. The cottage was perfect and Meg was very helpful and accessible. The house contained all the amenities necessary for an excellent week on Seneca Lake. We would definitely return here again!!!!
