Description Description
What’s better than planning a wine tour along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail? Driving through a vineyard to get to your lakefront home, of course! That’s exactly what you’ll get when you choose Stowaway as your Finger Lakes vacation home.

Drive through Caywood Vineyards on Seneca Lake to reach Stowe Road and you’ll find Stowaway tucked away in the woods. With 300 foot of natural lake front and a brand new permanent dock, this two bedroom (plus a loft) home will be the perfect retreat away from your everyday life.

Walk in through the side door and find an open floor plan. A beautiful stone fireplace greets you to your right and before you, you’ll find the quaint kitchen and cozy living area.

A full bathroom with shower/tub combo can be found off the kitchen. Completing the lower level you’ll find both bedrooms, each equipped with new flooring.

Upstairs, a loft overlooking the living area holds the third sleeping area with king size bed. Consider yourself lucky if you’re able to have this area to rest your head at night!

Outside - enjoy your morning coffee from the balcony and watch for the eagles and variety of birds that frequent this area, or sit each night with your favorite Finger Lakes wine and watch the stars come out.

The large yard is perfect for games and outside activities. Walk the stairs to the lakefront and spend the day sunbathing on the dock, or jumping into the cool waters of Seneca Lake. Popular wineries are abundant within a short drive, including Wagner Vineyards, Boundary Breaks Vineyards, and Bagley’s Poplar Ridge Vineyards. Downtown Watkins Glen is within a 20 minute drive where you’ll have a variety of area restaurants, local shops and the Watkins Glen State Park. Or, break up your day and take a cruise on Seneca Lake with Captain Bill! Your next trip to Seneca Lake will be unforgettable when you stay at Stowaway.

**4WD or All Wheel Drive is recommended for the drive through the vineyard and to the property.

House is clean , rustic but nice. Great location to wineries.  If you like Sunsets this is ideal location. Bring camp chairs for the dock, as there are no chairs that can be carried down and back up the stairs. There are kayaks in the basement of the house. Be prepared to carry those down the stairs and back up at the end of your trip. And please note the yard to the stairs is very steep also. The fans in each room are adequate for cooling at night, during the day it gets a bit warm if temperature outside is humid. Overall it was a great place to stay.

Great and wonderfully secluded place. Might benefit from some more comfortable indoor and outdoor furniture... but honestly, it met expectation exactly. The location and value are outstanding.

We absolutely loved our time at Stowaway. It was truly private and felt like a oasis of calm in the craziness that is our lives. The views are spectacular both at the house and down by the lake. While we knew there would be no AC and we certainly can't markdown for it, it was hot. The many ceiling fans do a nice job of circulating the air but it's no AC, especially not in August. We would definitely consider coming back for another stay.

This is a beautiful home. No A/C but not needed when we go. The FLPP staff does an excellent job. We've never rented anywhere where it is as clean as it is on arrival. Not easy lake access but we aren't looking for this. 4wd access is required.

When we first booked we were expecting a great experience because of the pictures and location. We were a little weary that the pictures would look better than the property (typical concern when renting anything from a business for the first time) and our slight worries washed away the second we opened the front door. This experience far exceeded our expectations. We saw that not only were the listed amenities available but there were some extras, such as kayaks, life jackets, bug spray, sunscreen and chairs for the fire pit. We were in heaven, and we shuffled plans around so we could spend more time at the cabin enjoying everything included. I taught my girlfriends son how to kayak for the first time here, which will be a lasting memory. He loved it so much that we would wake up to him already awake and fishing on the dock. Thank you so much for this experience!

Wonderful Cottage
This is a very well-kept and secluded cottage. All updated appliances and comfortable sleeping arrangements. We had a wonderful week there and loved the view and the privacy. Beautiful dock and shoreline. The hike tp the cabin from the dock can be a bit arduous but not terrible. Without question, it is a great place to spend a week.

Relaxing, Private Escape
My husband and I stayed in Stowaway for a week in July and really enjoyed ourselves. The newly renovated cabin has all the creature comforts one needs in a lake home, as well as some excellent bonuses: two kayaks, a stand-up paddle board, inner tubes, and a fire pit. There is no air conditioning (we were there during an unusual heat spell), but the cabin is very well-ventilated and there are ceiling fans galore. We loved how private the home is, located down a gravel road through a winery, with only two neighbors. Very quiet and *no* road noise. The listing says AWD is recommended to reach the property, but our sedan handled the road and driveway just fine during the dry, hot summer weather. The cabin is small and has one bathroom - ideal for a couple or family. The graded yard and stairs to the beach can be a workout, but we didn't find it to be a problem. Those with mobility issues will, however. We only wished that the outdoor furniture had been sturdier and more comfortable. Otherwise, we loved our week at Stowaway and would highly recommend it.

We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Stowaway and used all the outdoor amenities that came with this rental. We have passed your note along to the owner of this home that the outdoor furniture could have been more sturdier and comfortable. The owners are now looking into getting new outoor furniture so future guests will have a more comfortable time at their rental. We are so glad you loved your week at Stowaway and hope to host you again in the future.
