Sunny naps on the shore, cool misty mornings on the deck, and lazy Sunday afternoons with the family in a quiet place all your own: a secluded beach getaway is what you're looking for, and Merlot Bungalow has everything you need! This breezy, tranquil home just steps from the beach features two bedrooms, a full bath, and a gorgeous view of Seneca Lake.
As soon as you step through the door, the vaulted ceilings, soothing colors, and stunning view of the lake lend this home the feel of a luxurious coastal cottage. The brief main entryway leads directly into an 830 square foot semi-open floor plan. On the left is the kitchen, furnished with all the necessary appliances, amenities, and storage. Across the bar-style peninsula, the kitchen opens to the spacious living room, making the space perfect for entertaining close friends or hosting a family gathering.
The living room is naturally lit in the day by skylights and a fantastic wall-length sliding door opening to the back deck, and a small gas stove provides the space with both heat and a touch of rustic charm. Directly off the living room to the right are two cozy bedrooms, each with its own queen bed, and one of the rooms offering its own winning view of the water. Near the bedrooms you can clean up after a long day on the beach in the shower of the full bath.
Walk through the sliding doors from the living room onto the wide main deck, boasting an impressive view of Seneca Lake. Five steps off the deck is a patio with large grill, a stone fire pit, and ample space for entertaining. Descend 17 steps toward the lake and enjoy a secondary deck, where you can lounge in Adirondack chairs all day and night for a closer, more private enjoyment of the lake view. Just below the secondary deck is the boat house, housing two kayaks with life vests, which you are free to use to explore the lake. You may launch these from 112 feet of your own personal shoreline or lounge on the private 30-foot dock.
Craving something flavorful? Merlot Bungalow is located just minutes from dozens of the most highly rated wineries in the world-famous Finger Lakes wine region, such as the award-winning Fox Run Vineyards. If the theater arts are more your style, a short drive north will bring you to Geneva's historic Smith Opera house for a show and dinner at one of the many nearby downtown restaurants. These are only a handful of the experiences available to you that will make your time at Merlot Bungalow the perfect lakefront escape.

What a wonderful place! We will definitely be back. Loved every minute! Amenities were all great: pots & pans, coffee pot, dishes, glasses, wine glasses, utensils, cooking implements, all great! The only suggestions for improvement: better knife block, additional bed pillows, and faster internet. Loved the fire pit, grill, kayaks, life jackets, inner tubes, gorgeous decks! Very comfortable home!

This was one of our best vacations yet!! The Merlot Bungalow was the perfect place to stay while exploring the Seneca Lake region. It was ideally located on a quiet street, yet was a convenient starting point for visiting nearby breweries, wineries, and Seneca Farms Ice Cream Shop! The Bungalow was clean and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. The favorite part of our stay was sitting on the deck in the morning with a cup of coffee and a book, enjoying the sights and sounds of this beautiful lake! The sunrise this morning was gorgeous!! Will definitely be back!

"We had a great time during our stay. We also really appreciate the little doggie gift bags that we received when we arrived. Everything in the house was clean and the staff were very professional."

Leavey . from , 12/20/2016

"I could never tire of waking up to that glorious lake view and stepping out on the deck every morning with my cup of tea. Light poured into the pristine, comfortable living room from the oversized sliding doors and soaring skylights above. There are two spacious decks to enjoy the lake. We took advantage of the new kayaks to enjoy on the lake in warmer weather. This is one of the few rentals I would wish to return in a heartbeat. There are many properties on Seneca Lake; alas many have tired furnishings or poor light/views from inside. After searching through many properties I was convinced we couldn't do better in this budget and I was right."
