Labor Day Getaway
It was charming cottage with nice views in the heart of their wine country. We aren’t big white wine fans, but the staff were friendly and helpful. Also, there is a cute, contemporary coffee shop and boutique furniture store in Penn Yan that are worth stopping at. Enjoy!
Beautiful property in a perfect location! Everything you could ask for! Great weekend on Lake Senaca!
Serenity Aloft is a lovely house in a lovely setting, conveniently located, beautifully furnished, and carefully equipped. We enjoyed nearby hiking/biking trails, restaurants, ice cream shops, wineries, breweries, and cheese shops... but the sunrises over the lake, kayaking, sitting in the stony beach, train spotting, birding, and meals on the deck were just the best.
Guests should be aware that the coffee maker is a Keurig (pods were provided, but I prefer to use a refillable K cup, and I didn’t see one in the kitchen).
Jim advises using bottled water for cooking and drinking; I assume to reduce strain on the well. A case of water was thoughtfully provided, but I don’t like using commercially bottled water. Had I known prior to arrival, I would have brought tap water from home.
Thanks for a great stay!
A wonderfu time on the mighty Seneca
Peaceful and relaxing
Loved every minute of our family time in this lovely home. Great location with easy access to the lake. We loved the paddle boat and kayaks. Jim was very easy to work with as well. We hope to return one day soon!
Fun place to stay
Renting was easy. Was as advertised with no surprises. Private beach and dock was great for kayaking and swimming. House was clean and location was great for small trips to Geneva, Penn Yan , and Watkins Glen. We had a great time.
