Where is Seneca Lake?

Not only is it the longest of the Finger Lakes, but on a map, Seneca Lake hangs in the middle of its counterparts like the pendant on a necklace. It’s just over 250 miles west of New York City, and 120 east of Buffalo. Our lake house rentals are peppered around its 75 miles of shoreline, providing easy access to all the region has to offer.

Things to do near your Seneca Lake rental

Spend a day on the green at one of the area's multiple golf courses, like Big Oak Golf Course in Geneva. This 18-hole course offers club and golf cart rentals for the perfect, stress-free day. If you’re looking for some faster-paced entertainment, Watkins Glen International Raceway—or “The Glen,” as locals say—hosts races and concerts. It was once the host of the Formula One United States Grand Prix for 20 years.

There are over 100 wineries in the Finger Lakes, and the Seneca Lake area is home to dozens of wineries on its own. Perhaps the most famous hiking spot is Watkins Glen State Park on the southern end of Seneca Lake. Spend one day here and you’ll see why it’s a crowd favorite. While there is much to love about Seneca Lake, visitors who flock to the area, again and again, cite two draws in particular: the world-class wine and unparalleled outdoors.

There’s really no way to go wrong with a trip to the Finger Lakes. But if you’re searching for a quieter escape, with more access to the outdoors and a laid-back feel, consider one of our Seneca Lake vacation rentals. You’ll have everything you need for your most tranquil getaway yet. Browse our collection today and start planning your next trip.
