Enjoy stunning views of the sunset from this beautiful one-story ranch - your home away from home on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Trail!
Inside, an open floor plan and cathedral ceilings highlight the main kitchen-dining-living area, with beautiful views of Seneca Lake. The kitchen is brand new, including granite solid surface counter tops and cabinets.
Appliances include a stove/oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, and an over the stove microwave. There is a countertop for casual dining and a dining room table for more elaborate meals. The bright and beautiful living room features cable/satellite television and a stereo system.
The lake can be seen from all parts of the home, and French doors exit from the living room to the back deck. The deck is a beautiful place to sit and drink your morning coffee to watch the sunrise, cook the catch of the day on the gas grill or have a glass of wine while watching the sunset. A grassy lawn between the deck and the lake is a great place for the kids to play, or start a fire in the fire pit and roast marshmallows in the evening.
The master bedroom has a king-size bed and a spectacular view of the lake through the French Doors by stepping out onto the deck. There are three additional rooms - two bedrooms on the first floor with queen-sized beds and a bedroom in the basement with a full-sized bed (Please note that access to the basement bedroom requires a walk through the third bedroom). In addition, there are two pull out sleeper sofas in the living room area. The washer and dryer are also on the premises.

About Bob and Donna:
We are Donna and Bob Stivers and have been in the rental business for over 25 years, rented houseboats for 15 years, and we have operated Stivers Seneca Marine for 20 years. We have lived on the lakes for our entire lives. Our knowledge and experience have created a sense of security for our customers while vacationing on Seneca Lake. We want to offer an experience, not just a place to stay.
Bob and Donna Stivers purchased this House in 2010
Why Bob and Donna Stivers chose Town of Varick?
We love the Finger Lakes, this is the area that we have lived and have done business for the past fifty years. This house is approximately 5 miles from our Marina, Stivers Seneca Marine. The proximity to our Marina makes it easy to welcome guests to our Lake House. After you are settled in you can venture to the Marina for a boat tour, a boat rental, a kayak rental or just a relaxing drink at the Tiki Bar North by the water.
What makes this House unique?
This property offers a beautiful dock with a gazebo to watch the sunrise in the morning or to watch the sunset in the evening.
The house is situated nicely in the middle of the Finger Lakes Wine Trail.
You are only 10 minutes away from Lake Street Station Winery which has beer, wine, and liquor that you can stock up for your stay.
The lake is right in the backyard to go swimming or to just float around.
If getting out on a boat is what you are interested in, come down and visit our marina. We have pontoon boats to rent by the half-day or the full day.
We wouldn’t rent this one again.
(Area and view is great)

The best feature of this home is that it sits directly on the east side of Seneca Lake and has beautiful sunset views. This is the only good thing that I can say about it. The biggest complaint is that the second bathroom is located in the basement and you must go through a bedroom to get there which renders it inaccessible to those staying upstairs. The list of other complaints is long: light bulbs burned out, no coffee table, end tables, or bedside tables, no steps or ladder to enter lake, no chairs on the dock to enjoy the beautiful view, bare bones kitchen tools, and more. There is no thought for the comfort and needs of the guests. There is no trash pick up at the property- they want you to bring your trash to their marina which is 7 miles away. For us, it was 7 miles in the wrong direction- property manager Lisa agreed to collect trash for us. Lisa was kind and did what she could to help, but there were too many issues for her to correct while we were there.

The house is in great shape and can accommodate many and we were all able to spread out and enjoy life on the lake. We already talked about a return trip

We had a great time at this house! The house is way bigger inside than it looks from the outside. Great space inside. The location on the lake was beautiful. The dock was great both during the day for swimming and at night for stargazing.

The house was beautiful, comfy and clean. Loved it!

My extended family stayed here last summer. It's a beautiful location and the house is immaculate! The owners are always just a phone call away and are the kind of people that just want to make sure your vacation is going as planned. The sunsets on the dock and the bbq's we had here will be something that my family will remember forever. Stivers Marina is 10 min away where we rented a pontoon boat to take the family out on the lake and the Tiki Bar is a great place to meet other travelers as well as the locals. I would highly recommend this property and my family will continue to go back year after year.
