Seneca Secrets is surrounded by wineries, breweries, restaurants, farm stands, breathtaking waterfalls and more.
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 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.
The Watkins cabin has two bedrooms, a kitchen with stove, refrigerator and microwave; bathroom, living room with wireless, satellite and TV/DVD players. The cabin has a "Welcome Book", which provides local information, including directions to restaurants, wineries/breweries, grocery stores and where to go for boat excursions.
Zugang für Gäste
As you make your way down the driveway (3/4 mile), you will see a log cabin on the left hand-side, nestled in the woods. This is the "Watkins" (formally "New") cabin. Continue to the end of the driveway and you will see two additional cabins, on opposite ends of the property, overlooking the lake. Please note, we have a sloping gravel driveway and all-wheel drive is recommended.
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.
