Description Description

Pack your bags and move right into this modern cabin inspired by Nordic simplicity. Architecturally unique, Black Diamond is an ideal immersive experience in the heart of the Finger Lakes.  You’ll find this gem located on a private road at the base of a working vineyard within an old growth hemlock forest on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake.

Inside, the soaring asymmetrical ceilings offer an unimpeded view of the lake and the surrounding forest including a full wall of windows facing west to capture those famous Seneca Lake sunsets.

Looking to escape from the hustle and bustle? Black Diamond offers privacy with only one near neighbor to the north and the expanse of the Finger Lakes National Forest to the South. The first level has an open floor plan with a galley kitchen equipped with a stainless-steel appliance suite, quartz counter tops and everything you need for your stay. The kitchen/dining/living area opens onto a large wrap around deck with sweeping views of the lake, comfy outdoor lounge seating, propane grill and hot tub.

Black Diamond sleeps up to four people with an enclosed first floor bedroom and expansive loft level that includes both sleeping and reading/lounge areas with a bird’s eye view of the lake. The bathroom is on the first level with a large walk-in shower and heated flooring.

For the nature lovers; Eagles, Osprey, Herons and many other birds that call the lake home nest nearby.  At times, enjoy watching these wonderful lake loving animals fly right by the window wall, or overhead of the decks.  The private lakefront at Black Diamond provides a secluded cove-like shoreline with the National Forest as a buffer.  At the lake you will find seating for four and two kayaks for your personal enjoyment.

Proving to be an ideal couple’s retreat; book your getaway and host friends for part of your stay saving a few days for yourself.  No one will ever know you snagged those extra days of quiet bliss!  Ask to learn about additional services that can be added onto your stay at Black Diamond.  Host a private chef for the evening, or have a relaxing massage.

A small fire pit is provided on the lakefront for taking in the sights and sounds of the lake, while warming up next to a modest fire. Fire wood is not provided- please only use local firewood, which can be purchased at many roadside stands and gas stations.  

The road to Black Diamond navigates through a working vineyard, and then becomes a single lane, dirt road with steep twists and turns.  It is strongly recommended to have AWD or 4WD vehicles to navigate these roads.  A private garage offering space for 2 standard size vehicles with height less than 7 feet tall is available for use.  If your vehicle is oversized, or too tall, it’s requested you park alongside the driveway.

They have this pampering thing down to a science. The most relaxed I’ve been in years

Whenever I need a moment of calm, I'm going to close my eyes and think of this vacation. You made us so comfortable. I don't believe I have ever been so relaxed. Thank you.

We had a great time at Black Diamond. The property and views were beautiful! It was private and quiet at the end of the drive. We love this area of Seneca lake. There are so many wineries and breweries just around the corner from the rental. We will likely return in the future!

Black Diamond is a Gem !
Up for long weekend for 2024 Eclipse - cloudy skies were briefly disappointing, but stay at Black Diamond was bright ! Clean, comfortable, peaceful for our party of four (wife & I, daughter, granddaughter). Enjoyed the quiet, family time ! There is no TV, great to get away from it, played board & card games, did crafts with granddaughter. High-speed internet 100% reliable, did stream to get sports updates ! Deck is great spot to view lake, cook on the outdoor grill, soak in hot tub. Lake still too cold to enjoy a dip or the kayaks provided with the house. Large garage accommodated parking SUV inside. Drive through Caywood Vineyards will look even better when grapes come-in !
