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
