Description Description
Be swept away by the beauty of this home and its captivating views of Seneca Lake! This peaceful spot will make your Finger Lakes vacation one to remember.

Upon entry into the foyer, guests can immediately enjoy the views of Seneca Lake through the large windows in the great room that stands before you. Enjoy a roaring fire in the gas fireplace and stare in awe of the beautiful stonework that expands from the floor to the cathedral ceiling.

To the right of the great room, you’ll find the first floor master bedroom with king size bed and private ensuite bath. Consider yourself the lucky one of the group if you get this bedroom as it is complete with its own private door to the outside balcony.

To the left of the greatroom, an open floor plan welcomes you. Gleaming hardwood floors expand the length of the property. You’ll be treated with a warm and charismatic kitchen equipped with granite countertops and top of the line stainless steel appliances. Sit around the island breakfast bar and visit while your meal is prepared. This area is completed with a formal dining area, offering a great place for your family and friends to gather and relax indoors.

Traveling down the hallway you’ll find a conveniently located half bath and first floor laundry room.

Stepping outside on the patio you’ll find one of the best views of the Finger Lakes. Enjoy gathering day or night with your group. If the weather is nice, strike up a fire in the propane firepit located on the deck- no need to bring wood here! Pour your favorite glass of Finger Lakes wine, roast some marshmallows and make memories that last a lifetime.

Moving your way upstairs to the second floor you’ll find an open loft that overlooks the first floor great room. Curl up on the small sectional sofa, or use it as a pull out bed in the evening. To the right of the loft area is the second floor master bedroom with a private ensuite bathroom with stand up shower.

Continue past the loft to the third bedroom with both a queen and twin sized bed. A spacious private bath offers extra privacy that will make getting ready for your day a breeze.

Down the hallway, a small sitting area with TV is a welcomed escape from the rest of the over sized home. Directly next to the sitting area is a queen bunk room for the kids in your group. Just one door down you’ll find a full bath with shower/tub combo and second floor laundry room. Completing the second floor is the fifth bedroom with private balcony.

Outside, a grassy slope and stone stairwell lead to the premium lakefront where you can bring your own boat, or rent one locally so you can come and go on the lake as you please!

ANNUAL OCTOBER WEEKEND
We've been doing an annual long October weekend with friends for 5 years now. We started out at another property on the shore of Keuka Lake but came across this property when the former had already been reserved. Ever since, we've return to this property every year and hope to continue our tradition.

Thank you very much for taking the time to rate us 5/5 stars! We are so happy to hear you had such a wonderful time with your friends. Please come and stay with us again soon!

This property was lovely!
This vacation rental had the perfect space to be together while giving quiet space when one needed alone time. The back deck was so nice and we could all be there together. I’ve seen this house as a rental property on the website for a while - I’m so glad we go to experience it in person.

This is truly a luxury house, with all the comforts and conveniences one could want. It is a wonderful place for multiple families to stay because of the entertaining space and number of sleeping options. Though there were a few minor issues, the property is still incredible in spite of them.

Peaceful lakeside views

The house was spacious and as depicted in pictures. The kitchen was very well stocked. A few minor repairs were taken care of promptly by the property management. The deck was our favorite hangout pace to talk and enjoy the lovely lake view.

Great house for our group of 9.  The deck and views could not be beat.  Come to the finger lakes every year and this is by far the best house we have stayed in.  Very comfortable with each couple having their own bathroom.  Will definitely return.

The Perfect Stay

We stayed at Five Gates with several couples while we were in town for a wedding at Zugibe Vineyards. The house was clean, comfortable, beautiful, and located in the perfect spot. We would love to stay again someday!

5 Gates is a beautiful property that can comfortably  accommodate 14 people. The kitchen is large, there is plenty of sleeping space, and the main floor is laid out nicely for gathering. We enjoyed our stay at this property.

Absolutely breathtaking views of the lake and sunsets! Large kitchen was perfect for a larger group as we all enjoy cooking! The location was great, close to several wineries  with beautiful views of Seneca Lake and a micro brewery close by. I highly recommend this stay!

Friends? Reunion

Our group of 10 college friends gathered at this great house on Seneca Lake. The layout of the house, sleeping accommodations and number of bathrooms worked so well. The sunsets were amazing. The house was very clean and fairly well appointed (the kitchen knives could use sharpening). We had an issue with the coffee maker and the property management company responded the same day by dropping off a new Keurig. It was a wonderful few days in the Finger Lakes.

Thank you for your recent stay and for the kind words about our staff. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your recent stay and we hope to host you again.

A Great Weekend!

We always look to book homes that can accommodate at least 3 couples with an ensuite full bathroom and shower. We've stayed at some very new, very large, beautiful properties on other Finger Lakes but Five Gates is the best of all the luxury homes we've visited. We will book another stay very soon and we look forward to it!

Our stay at Five Gates Lakehouse was better than we ever imagined. The home was even more beautiful than in the pictures online. It was very clean and organized, and it was the perfect size for our family getaway with plenty of space! The sunrise and sunsets off the dock are stunning and we enjoyed the view with our morning coffee or evening glass of wine. We would highly recommend Five Gates Lakehouse with Finger Lakes Premier Property Rentals to anyone with a large family looking for a relaxing vacation!

Five Gates was a lovely, comfortable house for our family of 8 adults and three teenagers. Two adults were in their 80’s . 2 steps into the house, 1st floor bedroom with walk-in shower and 1 step to the large deck was excellent for their needs. The house was very clean- much appreciated. The kitchen has everything needed with an extra beverage and wine cooler. We spent most of our time on the deck and in the water. The deck had comfortable seating for 10 people. The dock was great for power boats- pontoon boats were best loaded from the state park down the road. The sunsets on the lake were truly spectacular. We enjoyed our stay!

This is a lovely place to vacation. The house was very comfortable for our group of 9. The lake is fantastic- the water was great for swimming. We rented paddle boards and kayaks for the week and we’re very glad we did! The owners do a wonderful job maintaining and appointing the house - and the management company was very responsive during our stay. There wasn’t much else we could have asked for!

Jordanne was extremely helpful with relocating us after our unit was unavailable due to weather. She was knowledgeable and accommodating. After updating our family and limo service with details all ran smoothly. Five Gates is well kept, spacious and in good location. We would definitely consider renting it again should we return.
