Cottage/Cabin Rentals on Seneca Lake, NY

Wake up to beautiful scenery and the serenity of lapping waves, at Seneca Secrets on Seneca Lake, in beautiful upstate New York, 35 minutes outside of Ithaca.

Step outside one of our cottages and enjoy a picnic, overlooking the lake, a relaxing swim, or take a short drive and minutes away you will find that Seneca Secrets is surrounded by wineries, breweries, restaurants, farm stands, breathtaking waterfalls and more.

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway for two or a long weekend with family and friends, Seneca Secrets offer a tranquil setting after a day on the water or a quiet retreat after an all-day outing.

Seneca Secrets is located off of Rt 414, the main road that goes around Seneca Lake, 5 minutes from Watkins Glen. The property is situated on 10 forested acres that lead from the heart of the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, down to the water, where you can see the lake peaking through the trees, as you go down our driveway.

Cabin Rentals

We have three cabins spread across the property, each with its own grill, picnic table and outside seating.

Each cabin has two bedrooms, a kitchen with stove, refrigerator and microwave; bathroom, living room with wireless, satellite and TV/DVD players. The cottages use either a wood burning stove or a heater (we provide the wood) for heat. All cabins are provided with a, "Welcome Book", which provides local information, including directions to restaurants, wineries/breweries, grocery stores and where to go for boat excursions.

As you make your way down the driveway, you will see a log cabin on the left hand-side, nestled in the woods. This cabin is called the "Watkins" (formally "New") cabin. Continue to the end of the driveway and you will see the "Montour" and "Dundee" cabins, on opposite ends of the property, overlooking the lake. Please note, we have a sloping gravel driveway and all-wheel drive is recommended. The cabins are well off the main highway and we have plenty of parking and privacy.

As you continue down towards the water, there is a staircase that takes you to the beach area, which has a mid-way stop with seating, offering a stunning view of the lake

The beach area is about 100 feet wide and has 4-steps that take you into knee-deep water, perfect for the two and four-legged among us! There is also seating on the beach, for guests to take in the majesty of this 40 mile lake and watch the occasional boat pass by.

Watkins Cabin (formally the, " New" cabin)

"The Watkins" is a classic log cabin, with a private deck and firepit, where you can see the lake peeking through the trees. The deck offers a beautiful view of the woods and is a tranquil setting to talk about the day’s adventures or watch the sun set, as you warm up the grill. The cabin is about a 2 minute walk to the beach staircase.

Montour Cabin

"The Montour" is a lake-side, knotty pine cabin, with amazing lake views, about 100 feet away from the stairs that take you down to the beach area, and has a shared firepit.

Dundee Cabin

"The Dundee" is a lake-side cabin, with a small screened-in porch, beautiful lake views, and a staircase that takes you down to the beach area, a few feet away. There is also a shared firepit, between the "Dundee" and "Montour" cabins.

Seneca Secrets....where you leave your cares at the top of the road.
