Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 13, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This is a uniquely secluded and private property. It is great for writers and artists, families with children, people with pets, or small groups of friends who enjoy spending quality time together. A wonderful place to relax and get back to nature. Beautiful hikes across private forested land that links up to the Sugar Hill State Park, kayaking and canoeing within 10 minutes drive of the house. Lovely fall colors and stunning views over rolling hills. Great winter sports area for X-country skiing, snowmobiling, snow-shoeing, 45 minute drive to 3 downhill ski resorts. Located between Seneca and Keuka Lakes with proximate access to swimming and boating and just three miles from the Farm Sanctuary which offers daily tours to visit the farm animals. A 10 minute drive to Watkins Glen State Park, and short drive to Mennonite wood-workers, antique shops, and organic locally grown produce stores. Down the road from multiple vineyards and wineries that offer daily wine tasting year round. Unique octagonal-design 3-bedroom house with a gorgeous view over rolling hills. There are 22 floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the house looking out into the forest. Wake up to see the trees and wildlife who approach the house: deer, rabbits and hummingbirds are regular visitors. Located down a winding driveway and away from the road. Two full bathrooms. Lovely sunroom for afternoon reading with a quiet cup of tea or glass of wine. The interior is newly painted and there is beautiful new hardwood cherry flooring throughout. The main bedroom has a king-size pillowtop mattress, and there are two guest bedrooms: one equipped with luxurious full size Japanese-style futon, the other with two twin futons great for kids or can be placed together for a king size futon. The master bathroom and all 3 bedrooms have radiant heated floors that are wonderful in the fall and winter. The main bedroom and living room have AC, which is useful at times in the summer. All sheets and towels are provided. The kitchen has an open layout, and is fully equipped with utensils, dishwasher, microwave, full-size gas stove and oven, toaster, waffle-maker, coffee maker, electric kettle, dishes, pots and pans. Excellent local caterer can prepare a delicious meal and have it waiting for you when you arrive. The living room has two futon couches that can open out to two queen-size beds and a "chair-and-a-half" that opens into a twin bed for extra sleeping space if needed. The living room has two sets of sliding glass doors that open onto a beautiful wrap-around porch with gorgeous views over rolling hills and forest. A beautiful outdoor natural cedar hot tub that can accommodate 6 people is installed in the deck and overlooks the hills--great to use fall, winter, spring and summer! Outside, there is a small gazebo lovely for breakfast. Two kayaks and snow shoes are available at the house for renters to use. The house has a new washer and dryer, BBQ, kitchen has dishwasher, microwave, full-size gas stove and oven, toaster, coffee maker, electric kettle, dishes, pots and pans. DVD movie-quality Projector System. Dedicated landline with unlimited calling to the US and Canada. The property has a very large fenced-in area which is ideal if you bring your dog.

What a wonderful home you have. We had such a good and relaxing visit with our friends and relatives. We all felt so at home and comfortable even the little ones slept well! You are very fortunate to have such a beautiful hide-away to escape to from both the city and all of your travels.



Thank you so much again and we will definitely recommend your home as well as hope to come back to it at some point.

Wonderful home, well equipped, and just gorgeous!

This is an absolutely beautiful home! We spent a week with our dog, and our 2 kids visiting family in Watkins Glen. The bedrooms are so spacious and the beds are SO comfortable! This house is not in front of a lake, but it's position on the hill provides a truly spectacular view! The floor to ceiling windows allow for the house to be incredibly bright even on the cloudiest of days. Well equipped for anyone visiting, the one thing we did not notice until later was that there was no TV or internet. But honestly, it did not make a difference! We still had a great time. The house has this fantastic DVD projector and a ton of DVDs. AND the TOPS supermarket 10mins away has a RedBox, so we got a couple of DVDs there for $1 every night. If you keep busy like we did, you will not notice the difference. Plus it is close to wineries and downtown with all the shops. So if you want a relaxing time, in a comfortable and beautiful house, this is the place for you!

OH and hot tub was the best part! Going in there in the dead of winter with that awesome view, made this vacation home the perfect place to rest.

We loved it and hope to come back here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review! I am so happy you enjoyed the house. It's true, there is no internet or TV. There is no high-speed DSL internet available in my area so no option to install it in the house! Internet access via 3G does work at the house and there is a cafe in Watkins Glen 10 minutes drive away with excellent wi-fi service. In case people need to check email!

A Perfect New Years Reunion

Not only was Katya helpful and fair, but she was unbelieveably kind to allow us to stay in her beautiful house! It's a wonderful setting, fully equipped, very very comfortable and right near the wineries!The best part was the view and of course, if you have dogs, the huge fenced in yard was a god send! Heated floors as well. THANK YOU Katya!

Our family of five humans and Lucy the dog enjoyed our weekend at this lovely home. It is tastefully decorated, clean, comfortable, and includes everything we needed to have a perfect family weekend. We bought food at the local Farmers Market and cooked meals in the fully equiped kitchen. Lucy had plenty of space to run and play outside in the fenced-in property and we left her to rest in her crate when we visited Farm Sanctuary, hiked the gorge trail at the Watkins Glen State Park, and enjoyed a local winery and microbrewery. I would love to rent this home for a week next summer to do some cycling, more hiking, and playing in and around Lake Seneca.
