Description Description
This spectacular 6 bedroom house is positioned on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. Below the Vineyard is located on the eastern banks of Seneca Lake, just below stunning acres of vineyards. This property has it all: a beautiful chef's kitchen, huge open concept main floor, 6 comfortable, private bedrooms, 4 full washrooms, and an oversized dock on the awe-inspiring Seneca Lake, close proximity to wineries, breweries, hiking, the quaint town of Watkins Glen and the Watkins Glen International Speedway.

As you descend the stairs to enter the home, you will feel at peace at your lakeside oasis. The entry level of the house is equipped with 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Immediately inside the front door is a bedroom furnished with a day bed and trundle, just across the hall from a full, 4 piece washroom. Down the hall is a bedroom furnished with a queen bed and a beautiful view of the lake. Continuing down the hall is the first master suite, which is outfitted with a queen bed and a private, full 4 piece washroom. To finish off the entry level of the home is a stunning loft bedroom that overlooks the sunroom, with breathtaking views of the lake. This bedroom is equipped with a queen bed, a new crib (27.5" x 52" crib mattress) and a new glider recliner for rocking the little ones to sleep.

Just down the staircase you enter the main floor. This open concept floor plan is perfect for family gatherings! It includes a custom gourmet chef's kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, a wine refrigerator, custom maple cabinets and beautiful quartz countertops. The enormous, farm-style dining table is ideal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, set in front of a massive wall of windows to thoroughly enjoy the view of Seneca Lake.

The open concept main floor continues into the gathering areas, with an oversized leather sectional sofa which provides a great place to watch the game or a movie on a large flat screen TV, or just play board games with the family. Need more seating? No problem. The main floor continues into a spacious sunroom, complete with two full sofas and a comfortable reading chair to make this vaulted ceiling room the next best thing to being outside.

Discreetly tucked away behind the great room is a quiet queen bedroom with a mounted, flat screen television. This bedroom is directly across the vestibule from the main floor, full 4 piece washroom.

The final master suite is down one more set of stairs on the ground floor, and is a private lakeside retreat! This suite has a queen bed, 3 piece bathroom with shower, and its own walk-out access to the lake.

The ground floor is also equipped with a full sized washer and dryer.

The outside living space rivals the inside. Below the Vineyard has two covered porches! The lake level patio has a comfortable Amish-made porch swing, two large tables with enough seating for 12, a bar with additional seating and a propane grill. The 2nd level deck is an extension of the main floor. It has a large table and comfortable patio chairs to watch the boats go by and the gorgeous sunsets. A nice feature on the main floor deck is the latching gate to keep the little ones safely contained in a beautiful, covered area while the older kids play in the lake. Don't want to sit under cover? Pull one of the chaise lounges out onto the lush green lawn, or better yet, out onto the oversized dock. The water depth ranges from ankle deep at the lake wall, to approximately 5 feet deep at the ladder, and quickly goes to 10+ feet at the edge of the dock. From this dock, your guests can swim, kayak, fish, or have a front row seat for the best sunsets on Seneca.

Below the Vineyard is within 3 miles of 10 wineries, 2 microbreweries, and several fine restaurants!

This is our third year to rent Below the Vineyard. It is the perfect place to dock our boat and enjoy the lake while also being able to easily get to all the other sites the Finger Lakes offer. The best part of the house is the covered patio where we eat, play games, sit and talk and enjoy the amazing view. We hope to be back next near.

Excellent new built, very private with only one other house access passing by. The two bedrooms were comfortable. The lower bedroom is a standard room with privacy door. The upper loft bedroom is open so sound can echo throughout the house. Beautiful sunsets from deck and hot tub. Access road isn’t for everyone as it’s steep and curve for one 4WD or AWD vehicle at a time for lower section. Our stay was in April for local wine trails and waterfalls, so can’t say much about fishing or wildlife on the lake. We may have been the first to rent with kayak and extra chairs still in plastic wrap. Would highly recommend this property and Finger Lakes Premier Properties. Will come back in the future.

Loved the lake view, enclosed patio and the main floor were very nice.
We really enjoyed our stay at Below the Vineyard! The lakeview from the house was perfect. We loved the complimentary wine and coffee! Neighbors were quiet. It is in a perfect location but the wineries and breweries are not really walkable since there Club Seneca Road is a long, large hill road but everything was nice and close. The kitchen, living room, enclosed porch and dock were our favorite parts of the house. The bedrooms could use some upgrades including new beds/furniture. The bathrooms were very clean and spotless. There is a kayak and paddle board on property which we enjoyed too. We would stay again! Thanks for a nice stay!

We loved the home. Lots of steps to get into the home from the parking area.   Great view and location.   Lots of rooms for large groups.  Everything you could need as far as amenities go.  Home could have been cleaner but overall we really enjoyed our stay

Lakefront Oasis

Staying at this property was incredible! There’s nothing quite like waking up, sliding that screen door open, and stepping out to enjoy the gorgeous view with your coffee. The kitchen has everything we would need cooking wise, but doesn’t come with oil, salt/pepper, or any food items—so be aware! The common rooms were the perfect place to enjoy each other’s company and play games. The location is IDEAL if you’re planning to visit any wineries. We made our way to quite a few, and all of you have to do is choose a direction and there are many at your fingertips. Overall, 10/10 stay!

Property is right on the lake. House was very clean and spacious. We had 6 couples. One bedroom was very small but all others were great. Kitchen had everything we needed. Driveway is long but wasn’t an issue for us. Parking for four cars only.

Amazing Location & Beautiful View!

This house and location is perfect for anyone looking for a Finger Lake’s getaway at Seneca Lake! We went on a girls’ trip and everything was great. The view of the lake from the kitchen/dining room was incredible, and the house was beautiful! It’s also really accessible to so many wineries and things to do, and the dock is perfect for lake day hangouts! Highly recommend!

Weekend Wine!

Great place for family and friends to get away. Newly updated and right on the lake. Everything was clean upon arrival and the décor fit perfectly. A place for everyone to sit inside and out. Bedrooms were accommodating. Perfect location between all the wineries and great local restaurants close by. Beautiful views. Would go back!

This was the perfect location for a weekend getaway. The house was clean and tidy. The kitchen was fully stocked with great tools. The location was great - especially since we could park so close and not have to walk far down to the house.

This was a very nice and very peaceful vacation. It offered the quiet life we were looking for. We absolutely loved how close the lake was to the house which is not as common in our area (North Eastern Pa). Kitchen was large and beautiful and the family room/sunroom/covered deck areas were absolutely perfect for the 11 people staying there. Over all this gets 5 starts and so does the rental agency for making this process of herding cats (aka my family) a lot easier than expected. Kudos to all involved.

April 2018 Stay

Everything was very easy from making the reservation, to setting up payment, to checking in and out. Finger Lakes Premier Properties was very responsive to questions during the reservation process. Day of check in, we got a call from them about 4 hrs before check in to tell us there was a problem with our property and we would be unable to stay there. Finger Lakes Premier Properties immediately sent us a choice of two other properties that were available. We selected one and they got housekeeping out right away so that we could check in on time. The alternate properties were slightly more expensive but Finger Lakes Premier Properties absorbed the cost. It was a beautiful stay. The snafu ended up working to our advantage. I will use Finger Lakes Premier Properties any time I visit the area and will recommend them to anyone I know!

From start to finish Premiere Properties was wonderful to work with in finding a rental house. The office staff was very professional, and the property we rented was beautiful and very well equipped and spotless. The extra touches of the housekeeping staff made the house very comfortable and welcoming. The furnishings and decorations were very nice and the kitchen well stocked. It was great to have a property with a keypad entrance and it was very easy to reset the code to one we would remember. When we had a question about trash pickup, our call was answered on a Saturday, and we received help right away. Our family had a wonderful time at Below the Vineyard, and would love to rent the home again sometime in the future!

We very much enjoyed staying in this house. There were 5 couples and it was perfect for our group. The common area between the kitchen, dining area and living room was open and perfect for a large group. The kitchen was well equipped as we cooked breakfast most mornings. We spent considerable time on the 2 deck/patios and utilized the corn hole game for some pretty spirited competition! The water is right there and the view is gorgeous. The only downside was the rather steep driveway both from a vehicle and loading/unloading perspective but the positives by far out weigh the negatives! Great choice for our group!
