Welcome to Serenity Place, a haven of peace and comfort as you vacation in the Finger Lakes! This home is located on the west side of Seneca Lake—the largest and deepest of the Finger Lakes—within 15 minutes of the village of Penn Yan and 30 minutes from Watkins Glen. The quiet, dead-end road to the house contributes to the tranquility of the setting. Whether you have a group of two or ten, there's plenty of room for you to vacation in comfort.

Inside the house you will find a roomy kitchen equipped with stainless-steel appliances.  With an eat-in island for four and a dining room that seats ten, there’s plenty of indoor seating at meals.  There is also a new high chair for the baby (as well as a pack-‘n-play).  If you still need more space, the attached deck provides great overflow space and allows you to enjoy the outdoors in comfort.  Just off of the kitchen and the entry area is a large laundry room.

The main floor has a large open cathedral ceiling in the main living area.  You can relax in the living room in front of the gas fireplace or the large screen tv with surround sound.   There are large windows overlooking the deck and Seneca Lake.  Tucked behind the main living area are the two main floor bedrooms, both with Queen size beds, and the main floor full bath with tub/shower. 

Upstairs you'll find two more bedrooms, both attached to a full bath with a tub/shower.  Bedroom 3 has a Queen size bed and is very spacious.  Bedroom 4 has a Twin/Double bunk combo.

On the lower floor is a lovely, large family room area with a full sized pool table, ping pong, foosball, TV/DVD player and a lounge area.  There are plenty of games, toys and books for the kids and a table to sit down and enjoy a glass of wine while you watch a game or sit up to for a game of your own.    This room has sliding glass doors that look over the lake and go out onto the covered patio with a hot tub and porch swing.  Enjoy soaking in the hot tub while you watch the water on the lake!  
Bedroom 5 is located in the basement and has a Queen bed as well as patio doors to the hot tub area.

 The dock is equipped with a boat lift for guests to use. The clear view to the east gives you the perfect place to catch the sunrise as you sip your morning coffee. Use the lawn chairs to relax and watch the lake as you prepare your supper on the deck grill. There are 4 kayaks available for you to use during your stay.

As a guest, you'll find no lack of things to do around you. Serenity Place is located along the Seneca Lake wine trail, and is just minutes away from the Climbing Bines Brewery and hops farm. The Village of Dresden is just down the road and contains several dining options, including the Dresden Hotel. If you're looking for more options, the village of Penn Yan has a wide variety of dining venues.

Come stay at Serenity Place, and experience the Finger Lakes vacation of your life!

Both Joleen and Myron were helpful and quick to respond to any questions/concerns we had. From reservation to payment to pre-visit instructions to responsiveness once arrived was outstanding. A pleasure to do business with!
I suppose the best thing I can say is: "can we rent Serenity Place again next summer?" We loved it that much. The house was secluded and roomy with both terrific outdoor and indoor spaces. The Great room which included kitchen, dining and living room was spacious and all furniture was cozy and very comfortable. Including the deck furniture! With 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms as well a finished basement/game room there was plenty of space to spread out. Outside was the same with multiple seating spots including a sturdy as well inviting dock.

We have rented several properties through Joleen. She has always been very responsive and the homes matched their descriptions.
The home was exactly as advertised. It was very clean and well maintained. The owners went above and beyond in leaving us a note and welcome bottle of wine!

Linger Hospitality was well-organized and staffed with very professional and most hospitable people.
We have rented several lake houses for our extended family to vacation together over the years. Serenity place offered everything that we wanted. It has a large, well furnished, kitchen and laundry, There is a hot tub, indoor and outdoor tables and chairs for dining, a foosball table, a very good pool table, ping pong, a good table for putting together large jig-saw puzzles, as well as swimming, kayaking, and other water activities. There were well-furnished and comfortable bedrooms and baths that accommodated all ten of us.

Jolene was quick to answer my questions and concerns.
We stayed for a week in the summer with our 21 year olddaughter and our 16 year old twin sons. The weather was horrific. It rained really hard all week and unfortunately we did not get to use the lake much but the views were gorgeous. There were brief breaks in the rain in the evenings and we were able to have smores by the firepit. We loved the ping pong and used the hot tub a litle but unfortunately it rained so hard we werent able to go outside as much as we wanted. But because the house was so spacious and clean we were very comfortable just sitting around watching tv and playing games.

This house was even better than we expected. It included so many amenities and we were greeted by a bottle of wine and card when we arrived which was such a nice touch. We rented this house to stay in while exploring a few of the many wineries close by and the location was prime for that. We had a lot of fun using the game room and hot tub. The house was also extremely clean and included easy to follow instructions for our stay. The only thing I wish we did was stay longer!

This house was FANTASTIC!! We loved it!!! The view was beautiful overlooking the lake, all the porches were wonderful, and the fire pit right on the water was too much fun! We watched blue herons fishing next door as a breathtaking bright orange sunset unfolded over the entire lake. Doesn't get any better than that!! The house was fully equipped, very clean and organized. Was VERY comfortable for the 10 of us. Joleen was very responsive and thorough to my inquiries. She also left a bottle of wine which was very sweet. All in all, we had a wonderful time, have no complaints (and we can be a pretty tough crowd), would go back, and highly recommend this place. It was EXCELLENT!!

A perfect respite for family and friends for the Hobart William Smith Graduation. It is a bit of a drive but well worth the escape. The grand room is enormous and fits the entire family.
