Welcome to Papa's Paradise, a haven of peace and comfort as you vacation in the Finger Lakes! This lake home is located on the east side of Waneta Lake—a small lake within the Finger Lakes region—within 15 minutes of the village of Watkins Glen and 30 minutes from Corning. The quiet road to the house contributes to the tranquility of the setting, as well as the wildlife you may see from the house. 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, with an eat-in island for four and a dining room that seats eight, there’s plenty of indoor seating at meals.   If you still need more space, the attached, large deck provides great overflow space and allows you to enjoy the outdoors in comfort.  The deck has outdoor dining furniture and chairs for seating/dining and is just feet away from the water.  Sunsets are amazing from the deck and enjoying a glass of wine while sitting around the gas fire pit is a wonderful way to end the day.

If the weather doesn't permit you to use the deck, take advantage of the great room in the middle of the house where you will find comfortable lounge space as well as a pool table.  Also in the upstairs great room/bedroom there is a flat screen t.v. along with a DVD player which you can enjoy from the couch.  So bring your favorite DVD's for those rainy days--there is also a large collection of DVD's at the house for you to enjoy as well. 

Papa's Paradise is a family home and has had many multi-generational memories made here.  You'll feel like you've taken a step back in time but with all the comforts you need.  
The house has an open floor plan with the kitchen open to the dining area and living room.  Several sets of patio doors lead to the deck from the dining room and living room and provide amazing view of the lake.  The living room has cathedral ceilings and an open stair case to the upstairs, as well as plenty of seating space and the pool table for a good game of pool--with a ping pong table top if you prefer.  There is quite an extensive library of books throughout the house for reading on a rainy day, as well as many board games.

The main floor has an additional sitting room tucked away to one side of the house and just in back of this sitting area is a bedroom with a Queen bed and a full bath with shower and tub.

On the other end of the house, off of the main living room, is a large bedroom with a Queen size bed and an attached full bath with walk-in shower.

Upstairs is a large bedroom/family room with 2 Queen size beds and Queen bed Futon.  The large walk in closet has been turned into a small bedroom of it's own and has a Double bed. There is an attached full bath with a shower off of the large upstairs bedroom.

The clear view to the west, from the house and deck,  gives you the perfect place to catch the sunset. Use the lawn chairs to relax and watch the lake as you prepare your supper on the deck grill.   Two canoes and paddle boat are provided for you so that you can get around on this peaceful lake.  You will have your own private dock for boating or swimming.  

As a guest, you'll find no lack of things to do around you. There are many places to hike in the nearby area, including Watkins Glen state park.  There are many wineries/breweries around Keuka and Seneca Lake and Corning has a wonderful river walk and street of shops.

We ask that renters to be over the age of 25. By booking you agree with this policy and comply with the request that the renting party is over the age of 25. No pets  or animals allowed at any time.

We look forward to hosting you! 

Come stay at Papa's Paradise, and experience the Finger Lakes vacation of your life!

*Air conditioning is provided with several mini split wall units in the main living area and upstairs bedroom.

I worked with Jolene and she was great. She was quick to respond to any questions we had.
It was very clean and there was a lot of room. The pool/ping pong table was great for the kids when the weather was bad. We will definitely be back!

Big, beautiful house with plenty to do with pool table/ping pong table, books, movies and games! Nice big deck with beautiful views of the lake! Well stocked kitchen and big family room with plenty of seating! Only 1 of the 3 bedrooms had a TV. Would've been nice to have a TV in all bedrooms but not a deal breaker! Within an hour drive of lots of hiking and lots of wineries! Highly recommend!!

Nice, clean space with the comforts of home. Fantastic deck right on the lake with a lovely gas fire pit table. We had a wonderful family barbecue each evening before watching the most gorgeous sunsets. The kids loved the ping pong table and reading on the cozy couches. A great space for our extended family with a washroom for each bedroom. The lilac bushes were in full bloom and the nuthatches were entertaining us as they probed for food along the tree trunks at the water's edge.

We had such a great place at Papas Paradise. The open layout of the house was perfect for our group and the close proximity to water was so great. The water is very shallow by the dock which was perfect for the kids and the full deck made it so much fun to hang outside all day. The bedrooms were great size and the kitchen had all the things you could possibly need. We would recommend this home!
