A real gem on Seneca Lake!
This house was absolutely perfect for our vacation with extended family. The five cousins loved sleeping in the bunk beds, which allowed all the adults to enjoy master bedrooms. The kitchen is terrific and the whole-house sound system was a big hit. Finally, the owner provides lots of great equipment - kayaks, inner tubes, etc - for guests. All around a great find, will definitely go back!
You couldn't do better than Herbst Hideaway
Our family had a wonderful week on Seneca Lake at Herbst Hideaway. The house, only four years old, was lovely. All the bedrooms had spacious, comfortable beds and the beautiful kitchen was well stocked. With 10 people we never ran out of silverware or dishes. A large common room allowed us to play games together. The sunrise over the lake was spectacular.
Every day the kayaks were in the water for several hours. We did some wine tasting and visited the brewery at the top of the road.
There were several good hiking spots,and we visited 3 of them, including Watkins Glen and the spray park at Seneca Lake State Park. A day trip to Corning was a great idea. Amazingly, children up to 17 enjoy free admission to the Corning Museum.
We felt, as the week ended, that it couldn't have gone better.
A gorgeous home, ...... with all the creature comf
The property was neat, tidy, and had all the features needed to please everyone in our party. The owners were accommodating before and during our stay. Herbst's Hideaway more than met our expectations, ... no surprises, .... no disappointments. We would recommend it to any of our family or friends, and hope to return soon.
Perfect Weekend Getaway!!
My husband and I brought our children, spouses and grandchildren here for Memorial Day Weekend. The house was perfect; just as pictured and described. Everything we needed was here and it was beautiful inside and out. We couldn't have been any closer to the water! Even though it was early in the season and too cold for water activities, we spent a lot of time outside. Very peaceful. In addition to the home and just relaxing, we also enjoyed Corning Glass Museum, Watkins Glen and wineries - all fairly close. We all said we would love to come back later in the season when we could rent a boat and have fun in the water! Good communication with owners was a plus. Thanks for a great weekend!
The Best of the Best!!!
Matthew & Julia Herbst have taken care of every detail that you could think of… from the glass wear to the dishes to the serving platters to the hotel grade towels, all you need to bring is your swim suit and some outfits to go out to the wineries in. This is a top notch rental house. The boat dock was awesome and the sunrises were magnificent. We got to relax on the dock and in our tubes on the lake. Our kids had lots of activities to keep them busy; from fishing, kayaking, paddle boating and of course boating… we brought our own. Our day trips to the wineries and Watkins Glen was awesome!! If we decided to come back to Seneca Lake this is where we will be staying again… if there not book!!!! Enjoy!!
This rental property was fabulous! The pictures don't do the property justice - the decor is beautiful and the finishes are first class! We had 10 girls for a winery, boating and relaxing weekend and we were all thrilled with our accomodations on this beautiful lakefront property. We would gladly book this property again and would highly recommend it to anyone that is searching for a wonderful vacation spot! Thanks
