Located along the Canandaigua Lake Wine Trail, and minutes from Naples, Glen Hollow offers the privacy of a vacation rental with the amenities of a wine country inn. Add the lake access for enjoying the crystal waters of Canandaigua Lake, and you have found the perfect setting for experiencing the beautiful Finger Lakes region.
Award-winning design firm Cultrara Associates spent over two years renovating this historic landmark – an area of stunning natural beauty, innovative culinary culture, and deep history.
Bringing the outdoors in, the garden room greets you as soon as you enter the home. Abundant windows and a beautiful garden area offer a serene respite. Pour a cup of hot coffee each morning and enjoy waking up slowly in this peaceful area, or relax at night sipping on your new favorite Finger Lakes wine. Open the French doors to adore the outdoor patio area, perfect for entertaining your friends and family.
The fully-appointed kitchen defines state-of-the-art farmhouse, where a Smeg range nestles in the arms of a surround made from 150 year-old brick. A DeLonghi cappuccino maker rests beside a hutch crafted from 90 year-old barn wood, bringing your favorite café into this refined kitchen.
The open living room and dining room area is an exquisite setting for gathering and relaxing alike. An Inglenook fireplace encompasses an entire wall and becomes the focal point of the open floor plan. Furnishings throughout are an inviting blend of antiques, contemporary, and Stickley decor.
Upstairs, an atrium balcony separates the master suite from the second bedroom and library. Inside the master suite you’ll find a charming four-poster bed and window seat overlooking Seneca Point.
A loft acts as sitting room with writing desk, large screen TV and sleeper sofa just off the master suite. Completing this wing you’ll have a bathroom with slipper tub and shower, marble heated floor, and walls of artisanal tile.
The west wing of the house offers a bedroom referred to as the “Swan Room” with queen size bed and antique furnishings. A fully stocked library with writing desk and twin size sleeper sofa is the perfect space for quiet reflection. A bathroom with stand up shower, a partition of hand-crafted stained glass, and walls of artisanal tile completes the upstairs.
Glen Hollow has been a tourist destination dating back to at least 1886. Today, visitors still enjoy the babbling brook and waterfall at this charming home.
A visit to the Finger Lakes would not be complete without spending a little time along the shores of one of its lakes. When you stay at Glen Hollow you will have access to kayaks (shared with The Main House at Glen Hollow) stored at Bristol Harbour Village. Take the kayaks for a paddle and relax with picturesque scenery of the rolling hills surrounding Canandaigua Lake.
The village of Naples is only a ten minute drive south where you’ll find area favorites such as Hazlitt Winery and Monica’s Pies. North, the city of Canandaigua is busy with lakefront dining, breweries and both fine dining and weddings galore at the New York Kitchen – previously known as the Wine and Culinary Center. Glen Hollow is the perfect destination whether you’re coming in for a wedding, a couples retreat, or an enjoyable weekend with family or friends.
Lake access is available for the kayak located at Bristol Harbor Marina, a short five minute walk across the street.
Please note that Bristol Harbour’s beach and swimming area are for Bristol Harbour residents only. If you would like to go swimming, Onanda Park is a five minute drive north on West Lake road. Large sandy beaches are available in Canandaigua 15 minutes away.
