About this property

Entire place

You'll have the entire home to yourself and will only share it with other guests in your party.

Spectacular Sunsets, Private Setting:

Welcome to our newly constructed, spacious timber frame lake home on Seneca Lake. We oriented the house so that there are spectacular views from every room. It sleeps 16 people comfortably with a 22 x 40 foot great room, including an oversized dining table, gourmet kitchen, spacious living room, an attached 14 x 45 foot deck, and recreation room with a huge sofa, gas fire place and television. We also have a large outdoor table and lounge chairs/sofas for comfortable dining al fresco. This property is unique because it can host multiple families with children. There are two master bedrooms with their own bathrooms and two bedrooms on the lower level that share a bath, but have easy access to the lake through sliding glass doors. There is also a bunk room over the garage with its own bathroom. The bunks are oversized (double mattresses) and can easily sleep two children per bed. Our lake house is also perfect for a small wedding or family reunion. The 1,000 foot slate patio that hovers 15 feet above the shore will remind you of a scaled-down roman amphitheater, with picture perfect views of the lake and the spectacular sunset. For more casual outdoor activities, the dock is big enough to seat all the sunbathers, swimmers and boating aficionados in your group. It's also an excellent spot to watch the sun set or have a picnic dinner. We are fortunate enough to have 150 feet of private lake frontage, with a large dock system and a convenient boat tie up. Our 18 foot Whaler is also for rent for an additional fee. (Water skis and tube included). Our location is ideal for many reasons. For our guests that want to try regional wines, beers and ciders, the Lake House is conveniently located on the Finger Lakes Wine Trail, walking distance to two of the most renowned wineries in the region. It's also close to some of the best hiking in western New York. If you like waterfalls and gorges, don't leave without a visit to Watkins Glen State Park, Buttermilk Falls State Park, Treman State Park and Taughannock State Park. These parks are exceptionally beautiful in the fall, when the leaves are turning color. We are also minutes by car or boat from the small town of Watkins Glenn, which was awarded 3rd Best Small Towns for Adventure by USA Today. If interested, please ask about renting our 18 Foot Boston Whaler for easy access to Watkins Glenn, sunset cruises on Seneca Lake, water skiing and tubing. Cyclist will find no shortage of challenging terrain. And skiers/snowboarders can easily access Greek Peak in the winter months for exceptional down hill and cross country adventures. The property is also a great place for people who appreciate cars, with its close proximity to the Watkins Glen International Race Track. Foodies will not be disappointed, either. There are many farm to table restaurants nearby, as well as breweries and distilleries that serve light fare. We also collaborate with an executive chef who will make herself available if you need a hand in the kitchen or wish to cater a special event. She also offers private cooking lessons in the Lake House kitchen, followed up with a meal that you helped prepare. Let us know if you are interested in Sam's services and we'll connect you. You won't be disappointed. Find more information here: www.simplyredevents.com and read the reviews of guests that have used Sam's services. Don't forget your binoculars. Birders will love sitting on the deck in the morning and watching the bald eagles land o

Amazing couples weekend!
This house is phenomenal! From the moment we arrived we were absolutely blown away. The sun was setting across the lake and we walked down the landscaped stairway to the dock with a glass of wine. There are incredible views from every room as the home is elevated. We cooked dinner each night in the gourmet kitchen. There were 3 couples and we each slept on a different level of the home which gave us complete privacy. Within minutes of being there I called Glenn, who could not have made the process any easier, and told him that I want to book the home again right away. I have stayed in a lot of waterfront properties all over the world and this one stands out in every respect. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

Wonderful Family Weekend
The house was even more beautiful than the pictures! The check-in process was very easy and the hosts were very informative and easy to contact with any questions. The house was very clean and the beds and pillows were exceptionally comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking supplies/cutlery/bowls/plates/glasses etc. We loved hanging down on the dock, my cousins even jumped in the lake for a quick and chilly swim. It is quite a number of stairs down to the dock, but worth the views. We packed a small cooler bag before going down, to reduce the trips up and down. We brought our blow up screen and projector and had a nice family movie/popcorn/s'mores night by the fire pit. The location was perfect, very close to Watkins Glen and the wine trail- Catharine Valley Winery next door was great! It was a quick 10 minute ride to Watkins Glen, where we did a Captain Bill's Lake Cruise that we definitely recommend. We can't wait for our next trip back to Lake Seneca!

Beautiful!
This is an absolutely amazing property! We rented the house for my fiance, now wife, and our parents to get away for our elopement at Taughannock Falls. It served as the perfect, safe home base for our adventures that week. We took the owners recommendation on a chef who cooked us dinner one night who was also amazing. I am very happy with our choice and hope to be back another time.

Fabulous stay at this gorgeous lake house
My friends and I had an absolutely fabulous and relaxing vacation here. The house is beyond stunning with wonderful views of the lake. It's modern but warm, with all that you could need or want for a lovely stay. Every room is beautifully and thoughtfully furnished. Comfortable beds with cozy comforters. A large, well-appointed kitchen. Spotlessly clean. Lots of space to relax, both inside and out, including three amazing, private spaces outside on the lake—a deck, a firepit, and a dock. There are kayaks and a canoe for use and plenty of seating. Glenn was wonderful and went above and beyond to help with everything we needed, from making sure we had enough firewood for the firepit to quickly replenishing the propane for the grill. He is incredibly responsive throughout the booking process and the stay, and clearly prioritizes the comfort and enjoyment of his lake house guests. The house is in a great location, just a few minutes from Watkins Glenn and right in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Trail. We also recommend Chef Samantha, who we hired for a private chef experience (four course tasting menu with wine pairing) and for a pre-prepared meal on the night we arrived. Both were absolutely delicious. The house is a perfect base for exploring the Finger Lakes. My friends and I simply can't wait to return!

Perfect lakefront getaway
After our vacation to the Bahamas was canceled due to COVID, my group of 6 couples decided to get away at the Finger Lakes. We are extremely lucky we found this house. It is new construction, with an absolutely beautiful interior and exterior. It is an amazing lakefront location with stellar views from every room. We roasted s’mores by the bonfire, visited 2 local wineries that were just 3 minutes away, and had a private chef cook us an amazing meal (which was a perfect way to have a nice meal in times when it’s hard for a large group to go to a restaurant). It was just a 10-15 minute drive from hiking at Watkins Glen. It comes with 2 kayaks and a canoe that we briefly took out on the lake but would have used much more if we were visiting in the summer. It is beautifully decorated, and each bedroom comes stocked with clean sheets and towels. We did use the kitchen to cook meals and it has enough pots, pans, plates, and glasses for a large group to use plus more! The owners went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We were even greeted with chocolates on our pillows, fresh baked banana bread, and local wine in the fridge. We highly recommend this vacation rental and are hoping to be back again soon.
