About the property

Central to all the Finger Lakes has to offer

A perfect lakeside retreat in the heart of the Finger Lakes. It’s uniquely located on the Seneca Lake wine trail halfway between Geneva and Watkins Glen, less than 10 miles from Keuka Lake. Whether you’re visiting the area to get out and enjoy its scenic beauty or relaxing by the tranquil water, this hidden gem affords you access to it all.

Begin your escape as you drive along the gravel path that leads to a beautiful log home tucked beneath a canopy of trees with Seneca Lake peeking through. There is ample parking with room for yard games along the west side of the home, and the main entrance lies to the south. The smell of cedar will greet you as you walk into the open floor plan of Secluded Bliss Lodge.

The kitchen spans one end of the home, providing ample counter space alongside new appliances for the family chef. Both the dining and living spaces flow directly off the kitchen and offer comfortable seating, views of the surrounding woods, antique adornments and an ornamental wood stove to enhance the lodge’s rustic charm. Double doors off the living area open to a fully furnished, screened in front porch; a tranquil space with a peaceful view to enjoy your morning coffee.

For your convenience there is a full bathroom with shower and tub on the main floor, as well as a first floor bedroom complete with a queen bed. Go up the set of stairs off the living room and you’ll find a vaulted loft with additional sleeping space. There is a bedroom at each end of the upper level, one with a queen bed and half bath, the other with a queen bed and futon. Handmade quilts and comfy pillows on all the beds guarantee you will sleep “like a log”.

Have fun in the lower level rec room housing air hockey and Ping-Pong tables, puzzles, games and a small tv. From here, open the door to an outdoor space complete with a grill, fire pit and steps that lead to 20’ of lakefront, a dock and boat hoist. Don’t miss out on the subtle luxury that Secluded Bliss has to offer. Book today!

About Sarah Mantell Marino

We love the Finger Lakes and we love to share all that this incredible area has to offer!

Sarah Mantell Marino purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Sarah Mantell Marino chose Keuka Lake

Location, location, location. It's at the center of anything you need to make your stay ideal for you.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin is truly a magical place any time of year.

In the winter months cozy up with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee and your favorite book or movie. The view of the lake is incredible once the leaves have fallen and the smell of cedar nourishes the soul. Our neighborhood is quiet and the snow covered path to the cabin adds to its tranquility.

Feel alive in the spring as everything comes into bloom! Wine trail events begin to pick up and area hiking trails begin to thaw.

Summer is our peak season on Seneca Lake. Take a refreshing morning swim, enjoy the fire pit and stop for a pint at our local brewery.

Fall is alive with color. The trees lining our property are ablaze with shades of red and yellow. The sun is warm, the air is cool and the local cuisine is at its best.

We feel so fortunate to live at the center of such a beautiful place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cabin was great! We loved our stay and wish we could stay longer. Everything was gorgeous and extremely clean. We were so comfortable and relaxed. Cozy fire pit with lake views was a perfect way to relax after a long day of wine tasting. Looking forward to making this an annual trip!

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great; about 100 steps from the lake- making it secluded and quiet, without being isolated. Great location from many good wineries and activities. More than enough room for 4 adults.

Great view; plenty amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect getaway for a wine tasting weekend in the finger lakes with the family. The view over lake Seneca Lake was beautiful. The decor of the cabin really made us feel at home. Just about everything you could want or need was available inside this cabin. The outdoor area was real nice for grilling and having a fire at night. With the separation from the landscape and trees, we really felt secluded and relaxed. We met a couple of the locals/neighbors while walking around the property and surrounding dirt roads and everyone was very friendly and kind.

This was everything we expected - plus more!!

Amazing Location w/ Great outdoor space

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained and nicely furnished. We loved the loft area with the bedrooms, and that it had an extra bathroom up stairs. The kitchen and dinning area worked well, and was nicely stocked. Loved the porch, the outdoor space, and the views. It was quite cold the first couple of days of our stay. Would have been good if we could have adjusted the thermostat some.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review, Jeannie. It was a pleasure to host you and meet your girls. Please keep in mind that if you visit us in the future, never hesitate to reach out if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable. The thermostat is an easy fix. We pre-set the temperature for check in but understand that everyone's needs are different. We are happy to guide our guests in its operation to insure an ideal environment in the cabin.

Very secluded

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of the cabin. It was nice to see the lake and be surrounded by trees. Very convenient to all the attractions. We would choose Secluded Bliss over a hotel anytime. We look forward to returning next year.

Amazing comfortable place to stay, centrally located!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the fingerlakes, so we did not know what to expect with most things. My boyfriend and I went with 2 other couples. We are all mid-late twenties. The cabin was perfect for the fall weather, the beds were comfortable, you can not see any neighbors (most of them are down the steps, right along the edge of the water). It is definitely secluded, but centrally located. It is on the same lane as climbing bines brewery. Sarah is great to work with! She answers all questions in good time and she left us cookies and a bottle of wine. My group was very impressed with how easy she was to work with and how we had everything set up, without any struggle, upon arrival. The key code to the door was sent 2 weeks ahead of time. There is a binder on the coffee with any and all questions regarding what is expected of you before you leave. There are some dishes, pans, and utensils provided. Towels and washcloths were available. Everything you needed, but forgot at home, was there! It was amazing :) I would recommend Secluded Bliss to everyone!
