An updated kitchen provides ample cooking and gathering space to entertain with family and friends. You can unwind on the couch next to the working electric fireplace or step out onto your deck and enjoy an evening night-cap as you overlook the cascading hills on the Finger Lakes.

Upstairs you will find 3 additional bedrooms and a full bath with tub/shower combo. The Master bedroom features a King size bed, a sitting area with 42" flat screen TV and queen sleeper sofa, and panoramic views of the lake.

Outside the kids will love the "Pirate Ship", a two tiered, 15 foot long wooden replica, complete with gangplank and steering wheel. On your walk down to the water you pass under a large gazebo to a gradual, 110' length of beach complete with wooden patio area under an overhanging tree. Fish at the end of the boat dock or relax and watch the waves wash across the lake. The lake bottom is almost entirely free of rocks and is shallow enough for children to swim.

We had a fantastic time at Heron House in October.
The weather was gray with a little rain but that didn't matter because our rental was such a pleasant place to stay while watching the rain fall on the lake. There are many places around to hike and we were so happy we could bring our dog and take advantage of all these. There was a place to walk our dog along the private road in the morning. We also took him to wineries and breweries which were dog friendly. So once again the location is fantastic and the accommodations were outstanding.

The Heron House is a quaint home on the lake with a beautiful view of Seneca Lake.
Our visit was in November, where the weather was cool and snowed one day. Even though the skies were gray, we were able to watch an eagle fly over the lake and swoop down to catch a fish for breakfast. What an amazing sight to see! The only problem we encountered was that we were not able to access the home via the access code provided. We had to contact the after hours emergency number for the lock box code to get the key, due to an issue with the system not working for keyless entry. Other than this glitch, we enjoyed our stay very much.

Gorgeous sunsets!

Heron house offers gorgeous sunsets, beautiful mornings and lots of watery fun on a little beach. You’ll also enjoy walking on the country roads nearby and many other fresh air activities. The kitchen is big enough for many people to crowd into to make a communal meal. The yard is completely fenced so our dogs were able to stay confined and safe. We had a fabulous visit.

Shellie W from Silver Spring, Maryland - Stay Date: 8/7/2022

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. Please come and stay with us again soon!

Family Vacation

We loved our stay. House was in a great location, clean, plenty of room, air conditioners worked great for warm days, kitchen had everything we needed, view from deck was amazing, we really enjoyed using the kayak, paddle board and paddle boat, we fished off the dock and relaxed by the fire pit at night. Short distance to town, wineries and waterfalls. Would highly recommend.

The Lakehouse had everything we needed to enjoy the water and outdoors and was very clean and comfortable inside. Definitely a steep climb to get down to the beach but otherwise it was perfect. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need for cooking and serving large group meals.

A Lakeside Playground on the Shores of Seneca Lake

We came here for my mother in law's birthday weekend and it was a beautiful and relaxing spot right on the water to relax and wine. Definitely need serious bug spray, but 1000% worth it!

Charming house and gorgeous views in a great location. A bit overshadowed by subpar maintenance and cleanliness issues but that did not deter us from enjoying one of our countries most beautiful regions.

This cottage was incredible! My wife and 3 daughters aged 4-8 had the best week of their summer. They cannot stop talking about it. The lake water was perfect for swimming, the play area in the back yard was amazing, and the over all home was beautiful. We will most definitely be staying here in the future. Thank you for providing memories of a lifetime!

Heron House has a spectacular view! We loved the amenities, such as the pirate ship, paddle board, peddle boat, rafts, and the kayak. The stairs are quite steep, but it's still a family friendly home. We would definitely return!

Stayed at the Heron House over Valentines Day weekend. We were extremely impressed with how clean and taken care of the home was. The house had more than enough of all the things you need including pots, pans, silverware, towels, blankets.
