This quiet 1950s-era cottage on the east side of Seneca Lake is in the heart of the Finger Lakes, New York’s premier wine region. The area is a paradise for foodies and locavores, offering everything from high-end restaurants to Amish food stands.
The cottage sits up on the bank overlooking the lake in the dappled shade of hundred-year-old oak trees; the property includes 150 feet of private waterfront and furnishes exquisite views of the lake and spectacular sunsets. It is beautifully decorated and fully furnished, with a large living and dining area as well as 2 bedrooms sleeping a total of 4, a bathroom with shower, and a spacious kitchen. The large screened-in porch is ideal for enjoying a lake-view meal or a peaceful afternoon nap. PREFERENCE IS GIVEN TO WEEKLY RENTALS IN HIGH SEASON. The quoted rates include Seneca County's new room tax on vacation rentals.
Guests have access to the entire cottage, including 150' of lakefront, with swimming dock, stony beach with firepit, and fabulous sunsets.
We offer what the Brits call a self-catering vacation--we get everything ready for you, then you look after yourself while you are there. Everything you need is there--the kitchen is fully equipped, some staples like flour and sugar and coffee beans from Gimme Coffee in Ithaca are provided.

We allow dogs but not cats, and hope that our guests will treat the cottage as if it were their own.
My husband and I spend our summers here at our cottage on Seneca Lake, and we rent the out the old family cottage next door until the kids are ready to take it over. Jim grew up here in Lodi, and we've lived in various places in the US and Canada, including 20 years spent in St. John's, Newfoundland, before ending up here in the summer and in Ottawa in the winter. Best of both worlds!
