Romantic A truly romantic get away with lots of privacy. We're in the Heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country on the East shore of Seneca Lake. We're just a 15 minute drive to Watkins Glen and within walking distance to several wineries and breweries. Enjoy the one mile drive down through working vineyards to the door of our private vacation retreat.
Local Wines Take advantage of our unsurpassed local wines. We're a five minute drive to over 20 wineries and breweries. Many have live music with summer menu options. Or, just enjoy our fantastic nightly sunsets from our relaxing and comfortable decks.

Upper and Lower Beach Road Access The Upper and Lower Beach Roads are privately owned by individual homeowners and may be used by our guests for access to our rental property only. Guests are asked to use the stairs to the beach only unless you need to transport something that can't be carried down the steps. After unloading, please return your vehicle to the parking area by the house - vehicles can't be parked at the beach. Please use our beach only and avoid other properties. We would appreciate it if you would enjoy our area parks for walking along the lake, and avoid using the privately owned Upper or Lower Beach Roads for walking or activities. We are sorry that we have to impose these restrictions.
