Description Description
This beautiful chalet hideaway has a vacation atmosphere that provides guests with the tools needed to unwind and enjoy life on Seneca Lake! Named after the calming, babbling brook near the house, Brookside has an appeal all to its own, making it a desirable destination for families and couples who wish to enjoy the famous Seneca Lake Wine Trail.

A long winding gravel drive leads to the lower level parking area. The main entry via sliding glass doors leads into a generously sized family recreation room on the lower level. Designed for hours of entertaining, this area features a bar and pool table as well as cozy living room furniture and a TV for enjoying a game or movie in the evenings. In the rear of the recreation room you will find a full size bed, and half bathroom. The lake view here is incredible and unparalleled, and located just steps from the 6 person hot tub on the patio!

An interior staircase opens into a stunning great room, featuring an oversized sectional sofa, open country kitchen, and dining table with seating for six. Two bedrooms, furnished with two singles each, provide a great place for kids, or can be pushed together to create a King bed. The master bedroom located in the loft is spacious, and offers a queen bed in the room itself and a single bed just in the hallway. When the creek is running, guests can even fall asleep to the beautiful sound of the babbling brook!

A blow up air mattress is located in the laundry room, and guests are welcome to use it to create additional sleeping space.

With over 150 feet of natural, level lakefront reaching out over the point, there is room for a variety of lakefront activities. Children will love the expansive pebble beach, where they can collect shells and skip stones into the lake. Guests that bring a boat can house it safely in the hoist when not in use, and enjoy sunning and even fishing from the large permanent dock. On calms days, a variety of non motorized watercraft are available to enjoy exploring the miles of shoreline and diverse bird population.

Brookside is located just 5 miles from the small town of Dundee, where guests can shop for groceries and purchase gasoline. With Watkins Glen and Geneva on either end of the lake, a variety of area attractions are within a half hour drive. And for the wine lover, Brookside is located right in the middle of Finger Lakes Wine Country, with several outstanding and award winning wineries just minutes away! Be sure to add this property to your "favorite places".

Amazing House Steps from Seneca Lake!!

We had an AMAZING time at the Brookside for a girls’ weekend! We had 6 women in the house and had more than enough space! As a matter of fact, we all discussed coming back WITH the kids (aged 9-18)!! They would have had a blast! Between the hot tub, the fire pit, kayaks, paddle boat, pool table, we always had something to look forward to do! The property is very easily found by following the GPS. The driveway is STEEP. Like STEEP STEEP. Definitely have at bare minimum an AWD vehicle with decent ground clearance. This house is one of the cleanest homes I’ve stayed in! Bathrooms and kitchen were sparkling. The hot tub was very clean and well maintained. Plenty of couch space in the living room area and kitchen. Kitchen nicely equipped with everything you could need. Just an FYI, there is a drip coffee maker, not a Keurig. There is also a water cooler (with lots of spare water jugs in laundry room) so there is no need to buy/bottled water. Bring your reusable jugs. All lights/ remotes/ appliances were in great working condition. The basement area has a great speaker/sound system and is where we hung out the most. There’s a mini fridge and a bar with plenty of seating down there. The four recliners around the electric fireplace at night was the perfect ending to a long day. There is plenty of seating on the upper deck to enjoy a morning coffee or an evening cocktail. Plenty of seats at the outdoor bar/grill/patio table/picnic table to eat and enjoy the breathtaking views!

First of all, this place far exceeded my expectations with cleanliness. Most of the vrbo’s or airbnbs have been “decently” cleaned at best. I still do my own cleaning and sanitizing. This was the first place in a long time that I felt was completely sanitized and cleaned to my (very high) standards. I let my cleaning products in the car! So HUGE kudos to your cleaning staff! The amenities were amazing. Beds were comfortable. The fire pit, the lake, kayaks, pool table, bar, hot tub….all amazingly well maintained and well taken care of.  There was so much room to spread out and not feel like we were on top of each other. The 3 bathrooms were just the cherry on top! The welcome kit was so cute and welcoming. It could not have been any easier to find, get in, and check out of! All those processes were extremely smooth. Great work! We will be coming and staying here again in the future! Thank you for a wonderful getaway!

Great family time at the lake

The house was perfect for our family. We spent lots of time just enjoying the view and the lake. The two decks were great especially if it rains you have cover. The house is close enough for trips to wineries and the state park the only complaint I had was the outdoor furniture and hot tub was not very clean

We had a wonderful time at this home. It was the perfect location for activities in both Watkins Glen to the south and Geneva to the north. There were plenty of wineries and breweries within a short drive. All the people at local establishments were so welcoming and helpful. There was easy access to the lake for our kayaks. The hot tub was a great way to relax at the end of the day. The house was well stocked with necessities. The coffee in the welcome bag was a nice treat. This was our 4th trip to the finger lakes, and we will definitely return again! Thank you so much for sharing your home with my family!!

April Bachelorette

We came mid April for a bachelorette. This house was gorgeous. The views are incredible and Seneca Lake water was so clear. We were pleased that the outdoor amenities were already available as the listing agent was unsure if they would be. House was big and clean. We did a limo wine tour. Limo could not make it down this driveway- we had to walk up half way which was fine…. Would absolutely stay here again.

Great Lake house

House was clean and came with beautiful views. A lot of space and sleeping accommodations. One con would be the drive way and how it is only mentioned in the welcome packet how steep it truly was. You would need to plan accordingly with a car with all wheel drive. Other than that, it was a great stay.

Excellent location, parking, cleanliness and access to the lake.  The dock is solid, peaceful and wonderful for relaxing, fishing, star gazing.  The ducks, geese, gulls and the occasional bald eagle (last year, not this year) make for a great outdoor experience.

Beautiful Spot, House Was Quiet & Clean!

Lovely spot for a getaway. The house was close to town and had amazing views of Senica lake. The kitchen was nicely stocked with cooking gear. There are three bedrooms. Bed on the landing and weirdly in a closet and in the pool room. It advertises sleeps 10 really sleeps six. Upstairs bathroom needs renovation, plumbing a little wonky but otherwise perfect location and beautiful views.

Very nice, relaxing stay for a family of four. The kayaks and other water equipment were a big attraction. Driveway is definitely steep, but not really a problem for our AWD vehicle.

The house had plenty of room for all 9 of us. The indoor & outdoor spaces for cooking, eating & just "hanging out" are very well suited for a big family. The kids really appreciated all the "water toys" that were available. The views go on forever - it is a gorgeous spot.

We had the most amazing weekend at Brookside. One of my friends, who lives in Watkins Glen, remarked that the private beach at Brookside was one of the best views of Seneca Lake you could ask for. The view was stunning, the house was ideal, and the reservation process was thorough and seamless. The weekend could not have gone any better.

We will have stayed there three years in a row (July 2013, 2014, and upcoming 2015). Beautiful & soothing view of the lake. Fantastic basement with a bar for teens & twenty-somethings. Watercraft, life jackets for all & a float that kids can climb on, sunbathe & then jump off. Great grill and patio. The hot tub on a cool night is delightful. Room for all. We all have a blast every year!!!

I sent an email earlier this week thanking the staff and homeowners for a great vacation. The home is absolutely beautiful, the amenities superior and the professionalism and responsiveness of all Premier Properties' staff members is to be applauded. From the moment we arrived at the home, it was evident it was everything it was presented to be on the website -- from the driveway (which we love) to the lovely appointed and well furnished interior to the outdoor playground. We had guests from one to 64 and fun was had by all. And the vacation coordinator (aka me) was impressed and thrilled with the ease of the process from beginning to end. I was able relax and have fun too!!! Thank you.
