About this listing

(1 reviews )

Welcome to Belle’s Buttercup, a 4 bedroom, 2 bath pet-friendly lakeside property with free wi-fi tucked into the hillside of Seneca Lake’s southeast shores just minutes from Watkins Glen.  A legacy gem currently in its fourth generation of ownership by the same family, this vacation rental oozes with charm and precious memories of days gone by.

 

Belle’s Buttercup greets you with open arms as you arrive to discover a large gravel doorstep parking area with plenty of room for up to four vehicles and/or trailers.  Upon your arrival, the little ones in the group will be thrilled to see the play area, complete with swing-set, sandbox and playhouse right at the edge of the parking area.

 

The steps from the parking area lead you to one of the huge covered porches overlooking Seneca Lake, where you will be welcomed by comfortable wicker furniture that sets the stage for the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the sun, in all its morning glory, reach above the horizon.  Entrances to both the main level living area and kitchen are found here, as is the large gas grill, conveniently parked just outside the kitchen.

 

Although the kitchen’s vintage feel has been kept largely intact, modern conveniences have been cleverly incorporated over the years.  Still equipped with her vintage four-burner gas range with 2-burner cast-iron griddle, original farmhouse sink, and antique 4-seater table, Belle’s kitchen also offers a newer wall oven, dishwasher, full size refrigerator/freezer and microwave. 

 

The main level living area is found just a short distance from the kitchen, with the main level’s full bathroom tucked between.  The original cast-iron clawfoot bathtub is still intact, so do bring along your favorite bubble bath and book and start looking forward to a long, relaxing soak!

 

The living area itself offers gas log fireplace for ambiance and keeping things toasty on cooler evenings, and a cable-equipped flat screen TV positioned in front of the wall of windows overlooking the waterfront. 

 

Three of the bedrooms are found on the main level, just off the living area. The first has two twin beds, a cable-equipped 19” flat screen TV, a ceiling fan, a gas log fireplace and an exterior door allowing direct access to the outdoors.  The second bedroom provides a double bed; walk through this room to find the third with a double bed and direct access to the second covered porch overlooking the lake.

 

The lower level of the property can be accessed by a staircase found in the main level living area or directly from a door leading from the parking area to the lower level living area, where a daybed, gas log fireplace, Bose sound system, and cable-equipped 42” flat screen television await; this is the perfect gathering place for children, teens and tweens on the occasional rainy day or in the evening, when the adults in the group are craving some quiet time.  

 

The lower level boasts a full bath with recently updated large walk-in shower and stackable washer/dryer set that links the master bedroom to the lower level living area.  From the living area, pass through the full bath to reach the huge master bedroom with lovely brand new hardwood floors, king bed, large wardrobe and chest of drawers, 25” cable-equipped flat screen television, and gas log fireplace.  The guests in the group that are lucky enough to draw the long straw and occupy this bedroom will love the French doors that lead directly to the brick paver patio and hot tub.  

 

In addition to the children’s play area, another small out-building, known as the Seneca Studio, is perched at the edge of the parking area overlooking the lake, offering a quiet place for anyone in the group occasionally needing some seclusion.  A combination of a flagstone path and staircase lead from Belle’s yard to 150’ of shale waterfront with boat lift and huge U-shaped permanent dock.  Shaded and large enough to accommodate a bench, full size picnic table and several outdoor chairs, adults will be happy to spend time sharing their joy as the children enjoy the swim raft, waterslide, and many other water toys found at the beach.

 

Belle’s Buttercup is a warm and welcoming legacy cottage that has been curated and cultivated for decades to accommodate multi-generational family vacations and create priceless lake vacation memories.  Let’s start planning your Finger Lakes Getaway today!
