Beautiful Lake Views On The Hill

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 20, 2016
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Beautiful fully furnished and equipped vacation home with great views on the Sunset side of Seneca Lake.

Conveniently close to everything that you want to explore or visit in the Finger Lakes. The roomy 1600 square foot interior of this old farmhouse has new modern paint, updated vanities, new BeautyRest mattresses and gorgeous refinished hardwood floors throughout. You'll enjoy taking in the stunning lake views from the large enclosed front porch, the living area, front bedroom or from one of the seating areas outside in the large acre yard. Pictures don't do justice for the wonderful views, beautiful rooms or ample size of the house. Great mix of old and new decor as well as furnishings.

Picnic table, hammock and bench as well as other portable seating for outdoor use.

1 small dog considered on a case by case. No smoking in the house.

Saving as one of my favorites!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy to have come across this vacation home. Diane and Tony have taken a comfortable old farmhouse with a beautiful view of Seneca Lake and turned it into a wonderful retreat. The house is instantly welcoming - clean, spacious, beautiful hardwood floors, lovely porch overlooking the lake, comfortable beds and an overall peaceful environment. It feels very private as there is greenery and fence between neighbors and is situated on a bit of property perfect for viewing the sunset.

We found the location for sightseeing to be perfect. 10-15 minutes from Watkins Glen - which is truly spectacular. Very close to nice restaurants, wineries, breweries, shops and stores. (love the Stone Cat Cafe, Two Goats Brewing, Skyland Art Barn, Ben & Jerry's, Seneca Harbor Station) Only about 30-40 minutes to great parks in Ithaca - Robert Treman, Taughannock, Buttermilk Falls, etc. Driving around the area is enjoyable too - lots of woods, views of the lakes, farmland. Also good for exploring the beautiful campus of Cornell and downtown Ithaca (Be ready for traffic downtown and avoid rush hour if you can). It was great to take my Mom to the iconic Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca :)

Our host was helpful and in communication with us whenever we needed anything. The house also had many booklets and maps to help with our day trip planning. We hiked, swam and kayaked and had a restful home base to return to every evening. It was really lovely. We would gladly return and will definitely recommend to friends.

Historic Gem in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

Rented this AMAZING property for a Phish festival at Watkins Glen. House is immaculate, furnished beautifully, and the best place I have stayed in Watkins Glen. The kitchen was large enough to cook a full breakfast and dinner every day! No detail is overlooked. Unfortunately we had a friend cut himself, and there was a FULLY stocked first aid kit. Close to wineries, the racetrack, and swimming in Seneca Lake. Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very comfortable and well stocked. We especially appreciated the great mattresses! Beautiful view of the lake. Very easy access to beach, shopping, and site-seeing. Loved it and would go back anytime.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We were all very happy with the house! The view is absolutely gorgeous and the inside is nicely furnished. The living room comfortably sat all six of us and the kitchen table was great for playing board games. The kitchen had a lot of necessities incuding fridge, microwave, and toaster oven. The rentor was extremely accommodating and allowed us to control the heat so that everyone was comfortable. She mentioned there would be enough towels and wash cloths but we seemed to be short a few wash cloths so you might want to take your own if you have a large group of people. The only other tip was we visited the house in april so they hadn't had a chance to do any winter maintenence so the driveway was a little rough for sportscars. Hoping they plan to fix the driveway because this place is a great house for a great price and great view. It is only minutes from downtown watkins glen!

Great Place, cannot wait to return in 2015

  • 5 of 5

Truly a gem of a find. We have been attending the NASCAR race for several years and resort to staying in motels in the area, which don't have the comforts of a home. Having found this house, it is wonderful and perfect for us. All accommodations were excellent and we tried to treat it as we would want someone to treat our place. There was nothing we lacked in the way of amenities, comfort, location or view. Only one minor problem which happened on "our watch" and we took care of correcting it which the owners appreciated. Enjoyed the stay and are looking forward to returning in 2015. Thanks for having us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review and taking time to submit it. Not everyone is able to find the time to submit a review, so it is very much appreciated. We have had many return guests, so even if they don't do a review, we know people are enjoying the home and we are doing something right. It is very fulfilling to know our guests are happy and all our hard work is being appreciated!

Quiet comfort with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the "Deck the Halls" wine tour weekend. We had 6 adults in our group, and found this home to be perfect for our group. The view of the lake is wonderful, and the house is centrally located for the wine tour. The kitchen is just the right size for multiple adults to be in at the same time while preparing meals, and the 3 beds were very comfortable. Customer service with great, with a list of good restaurants in the area. The house is close to Watkins Glen - for those runs to the store! I would highly recommend this property.

Amenities

From the Owner

Nice private house and setting with no one to bother you during your stay. Can't beat the views as mentioned, but also with plenty of outdoor furniture to put where you want on the property and a charcoal grill on wheels, you can enjoy the views as well as the nice yard. The bedrooms are all on the 2nd floor, but there is only 3 steps down to get into the house.
