About Elisabeth Smith, Paul DeLaney
We love our Seneca Lake adventures and have been vacationing at the cottage next door to the Cliff House for many years with our children and grandchildren. We are pleased to share this beautiful place with you and hope you will enjoy being our guests at Cliff House.
Elisabeth Smith, Paul DeLaney purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Elisabeth Smith, Paul DeLaney chose Hector
Cliff House was built in 1956 on property belonging to my grandparents. In fact, Cliff House sits on farmland that has been in my family for five generations. Seneca people first inhabited this land and built a village nearby. On a quiet night, legend claims, you can hear the drums of the Seneca across the water.
What makes this Cottage unique
The view from the deck takes our breath away and we feel at peace; a perfect place for morning coffee, yoga or sipping wine.

Loved the Cliff House
We had a really great 3 nights at the Cliff House. I don’t think the pictures do the property justice, especially the views from the deck and the dock. We found everything we needed inside even when making steaks on the grill. The House was situated at a perfect location on the east side of Seneca where many of our favorite wineries and breweries are located. The only thing I would mention is that the dirt road down to the house is a little rough for cars with low clearance like ours. Next time will bring our Subaru!
It's quaint and cozy. Beautiful view of the lake.
We had a very nice time. The house is conveniently located by several breweries and wineries. It's a 15 minute drive to Watkins Glen for food. The house was clean, easy and efficient heat when needed, and very close to the lake. We will definitely book again.
Home for the weekend

We visited in September of 2017 for a fun weekend with some friends. This place was great! It is MUCH nicer and more spacious than it appears in the pictures. The deck and dock area with kayaks and canoes was great. We also loved the fire pit! I would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again in a heartbeat. Only downsides - the water smells like rotten eggs - there must not be a water softener or something? They DO provide safe drinking water which is nice, but it was slightly difficult to take a shower or do this dishes. The drive down to the house is also a little difficult. It is a windy, gravel, road that is rather steep. None of these things would deter me from staying at this beautiful property again. Highly recommend it!
Dear Chase, We are glad you enjoyed Cliff House. Thanks for mentioning the water problem. It has been resolved! We hope you and your friends visit our cottage again.

Located on the Seneca wine trail, cheese trail and a five minute drive to several breweries, this quiet cliff house is the perfect base camp to explore the finger lakes. Nestled in the woods, below the vineyards overlooking seneca lake, this one story cottage offers you a private lakeside beach, and dock for enjoying water sports, fishing or an evening campfire. You have access to two kayaks and a canoe; with life jackets for your safety. A newly built staircase leads to the beach.. Explore the waterfalls, or walk through the vineyards to the winery to enjoy the grape harvest. Visit nearby cornell university (24 miles) in ithaca or watkins glen state park (12 miles) to hike the gorge, go to the race track or book a tour of the lake by sail or motorboat. Visit seneca falls, home of the women's rights museum (29 miles) and stop along the way at an amish produce stand or gift shop. Most importantly, dine on our deck overlooking the lake and experience a brilliant sun set.
