About Lisa Harrington
We savor our time on Seneca Lake with friends and family, creating wonderful memories with our three children. We enjoy the clean cool waters and the peaceful surroundings, as well as the wonderful wineries and restaurants. We enjoy making constant improvements to our all-wood home (with an interior full of that rich wood smell) and look forward to sharing our lake side retreat with you.
Lisa Harrington purchased this House in 2011
Why Lisa Harrington chose Geneva
We purchased this home from a family who built it together by hand, and we hope to maintain the wonderfully warm and inviting feel. The view of the lake from this home is so inspirational, the waters are clean, refreshing and replenishing. Besides relaxing and taking in the beautiful surroundings, there are various water sports to be enjoyed --boating, sailing, canoeing--there are over 37 wonderful wineries peppered around the lake, local dairy farms for cheese and ice cream tasting, local parks and beaches, biking and hiking paths, restaurants, spas, water parks, even Waterloo Outlet Mall is close for rainy days. We hope to retire in this lake home someday. With three children and a family landscaping business we are limited in the time that we spend at the lake. Therefore, we are renting it to allow others the opportunity to enjoy the peaceful setting on the water---renting also helps pay the taxes and maintenance costs. So please enjoy the all wood home and the stars - the quiet and the lake.
What makes this House unique
With the low ambient light you will see lots of stars. Just walk out the door onto the deck and look up - millions of stars and the sound of waves. In the winter enjoy all the wild waterfowl from all over North America - Seneca Lake does not freeze so enjoy all the waterfowl wintering over - including lots of loons. See Osprey and bald eagles fish and fly. This is a place of peace and quiet - of nature and when inside the wood smell and sight gives a comfort to all.

Great family vacation!
There are 13 of us and there was plenty of space. We enjoyed the closeness of the lake and enjoyed the paddle boat and the boards. Our 2 year old loved the play kitchen! The location is great since there are many things to do, whether it is wine tasting or doing activities with the entire family. We would love to do it again!
All Well Done
Enjoyed the house and it’s amenities. Plenty of living space with big bonus room in basement allowing our large group to spread out. Lakefront was accessible with available canoe and paddle boards which we thoroughly enjoyed.
We had a wonderful experience! The house was very clean and organized and the lake access was very well maintained! Working with Lisa and Kevin was a breeze. Would absolutely recommend staying at this property!
Home away from home!
The house, yard and spectacular view was enjoyed by all. Owners were very responsive. We didn’t want to leave.
Great house with great view.
Great house with much character. Facilities were excellent and owners were superb to work with. We had 12 people and the house had room for all.
A little piece of heaven! Highly recommend.
Just got home from a long weekend at Wood and Water for the Hobart and William Smith graduation. The house is immaculate with a wonderful feel to it. The photos can't do it justice...it is much larger than it appears. There were 11 of us sleeping there. Plenty of room/rooms/bathrooms. The main living area is perfect for gathering but there are many other places to retreat to if you need a break. We had some friends over for dinner and the large deck, backyard and dock as well as the main living area gave us lots of room to visit and mingle.
The hosts were so great to deal with. Very patient with our questions and gave us great info on local places to eat and visit.
The beds were comfortable. Each room has a ceiling fan and there is updated AC units (which we didn't need) so you can regulate the temp to your liking.
We used the grill and the oven...whatever kind of food prep you need is there.
And the views!!! Mornings are beautiful and sunsets are spectacular.
12 ish minutes to downtown Geneva and all the cool places that has to offer.
What more can I say? Highly recommend. Helped make a special occasion even more memorable for my family and me.
Great fireworks displays on holidays right from the dock, go from Seneca Lake all the way to the ocean - connected to the canal system, Watkins Glen at south end of lake so world class NASCAR, Hobart and William Smith Colleges 10 minutes away, Syracuse and Rochester less than an hour away.
