Why Meg Cecere chose Seneca Lake

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!

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!!!!

girls getaway

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful location, right on the water, the lake is clear. The house is spacious, lots of room for the 7 of us that stayed. The house needs updating, looks very 1980's, the 2 bathrooms I used really needed new flooring, cracked tiles in one, carpet in the other. The bedding was clean but stained and old. Mattress in master bedroom was comfortable enough. The kitchen was stocked well but could have used a few more spoons. The dishwasher worked but was loose and the drawers slid out when opened. Ventosa vineyard is lovely.

Awesome Wedding Weekend at Crazy Cove Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and a few other couples rented the Crazy Cove lake house for a memorial day weekend wedding. It had everything we needed and more! I was very pleased with the house and there was plenty of space for our party of 10. The master bedroom provides an amazing view of Lake Seneca and was a beautiful sight to wake up to each morning. Thanks so much for letting us stay we had a wonderful trip!

Great weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for a weekend wine trip with 4 couples. It was everything we expected. The property could use a few cosmetic updates and a few things didn't work (like the fireplaces) but overall everything was exactly as advertised, VERY clean and well worth the price. The view was awesome, grab the master bedroom for yourself. The owner was great to work with - we recommend their winery, Ventosa, nearby. The location was great too. Very close to Geneva and lots of wineries. We'd rent here again and highly recommend this property and the owners.

Comfy Beds and Awsome Sunrise

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful week we had in a beautiful home. There is plenty of room. The beds were so comfortable. The only problem was we couldn't catch any fish. LOL Everything was clean. The only thing it could use was a few more baking dishes in different sizes and more plastic storage containers. But then not all people are as crazy as we are to cook on vacation. Plenty of towels and linens. Most days the water was so clear and clean. The grandkids loved the water. They loved everything about the house. Went to Emiles, Nonnas, and Connies. All were very good. The Windmills was also great in Pen Yan. Plenty of room for the sun worshippers like myself with the nice breeze off the water. Roys Marina was also very accomendating. Great place that I will recommed to all, It was everything advertised and more! Thank you Meg for sharing your home with us!!
