Our property features an 8-foot-wide hiking trail, built in 1998 by our neighbor (an environmental architect), which winds through 3000 feet of woods and meadows, and was designed to provide a welcome habitat for birds, deer, wild turkey, and other wildlife native to the area. A leisurely walk along the trail provides a quiet environment for meditation, bird watching or just enjoying nature.
Our grounds provide direct access to Seneca Lake (60 steps down to the dock), with good swimming, access to our 80-foot dock, a canoe and rowboat, and plenty of chairs for lounging, reading, sunning, etc. A pavilion with a large picnic table is available for use by our guests. Close to the pavilion is a fire pit, available for guests to roast marshmallows, cook dinner, and enjoy the fire.
The Windmill Farm & Craft Market (located between Penn Yan and Dundee, NY) is only minutes away, and some of the best boating and fishing facilities in New York State are nearby.
An 80-foot dock was added in 2006, with 2 benches at the end for viewing the lake. It includes a metal ladder at the end for swimming and a lower platform for boarding small boats.
The photo of Mike and Jen to the right was taken as they celebrated her birthday during ——> our breakfast time.
The photo at the top of the page is of our coffee/tea/cocoa area in the kitchen. The maroon case on the right contains packets of cocoa and several flavors and strengths of coffee (regular and decaf). Individual packets can be brewed in the Flavia coffee maker in about 30 seconds. The canisters on the left contain several different flavors of loose Adagio tea (black, green, and herbal), which can be steeped using the transparent IngenuiTEA teapots. Our bottomless cookie jar is also in this area.
Relax in our 2-person hammock, nestled in a grove of trees with a great view of the lake.
To the right is a photo of our new stairs down to the lake. It was completed in November, 2014, and includes a 12 x 12 foot deck providing an excellent place to sit and enjoy the grandeur of Seneca Lake. The pavilion at the top of the hill includes a 8-foot picnic table. ——–>
