This was great for our Seneca7 bicycle team and friends. We made full use of the kitchens and hot tub. We would consider this house again if we ever do the race again.

View is amazing! House needs some updates. Be aware there are 2 steep flights of concrete steps to get down to the house from the parking area. Also water usage is very restricted- they tell you not to use 2 showers at the same time, no more than 1 load of laundry per day, etc. Pretty difficult if you have 14 people in the house! Game room is fun!

Ian, we love hearing that you enjoyed this home's beautiful view and had fun using the game room. We appreciate your insight on the home and have shared your comments with the homeowner. They informed us that most homes in the area are equipped with a septic system/septic tank which cannot handle 3 showers and a washer being used at the same time. To avoid any issues, they ask that these are used separately. They're continually upgrading the home with guest comfort in mind including new futons in the basement and adjustments to the hot tub this spring. We look forward to this home continuing to provide memorable guests stays! Best, the Evolve Team
We had 15 people (11 adults and 4 children) and found this property to be just what we needed and the owner was okay with one extra member. Thanks to Brian from evolve vacation rental. He had been very responsive to emails and communication over phone. Christine, our Guests Contact was very friendly and made sure we were comfortable with the stay. It was very spacious so we never felt like we were on top of each other. The living/dining area had enough comfortable seating where all of us could gather in one space. I would highly recommend this place if you have a large group or multiple families going on the trip together. Plus the price made it extremely affordable. Would love to rent this place again.

We loved our experience at this house. The dock is great and more secluded and the lake water is super clear. We rented a kayak and paddleboard for the lake, too, which was great. We used the hot tub at night which was great in cooler weather. The house was spread out so the bedrooms were not on top of each other which was nice when you have a lot of people. There are two refrigerators and two kitchens which help's a lot. The living room was large and comfortable. I would definitely recommend the house. Many wineries nearby and easy to get to.

We really enjoyed our stay! A group of use were there for a friends bachelorette and bridal shower. The house was clean and had plenty of space. We loved spending time on the dock, swimming, and enjoying the hot tub and fire pit.

We stayed at Lakeside Harmony with our family of 7 (My husband and I, our 2 adult children with their wife and fiancŽ, and our 17 year old son). There was plenty of room! Here's what we LOVED about the place- The kitchen/ dining area was nice, spacious and had everything we needed to cook and bake. The extra refrigerator and kitchen area at the other end of the house was nice for storage and would come in handy if there were more people. There were plenty of bath towels and hot water. All the beds were comfortable and there were plenty of pillows to find one that suits you. We did not use the loft area, but it is located above the smaller kitchen/living area, not the main living room. I say this because if you had children/ teens up there, it is private and if they went to bed early, the people in the main living area wouldn't be too loud (and vice-versa). The main living room had comfortable couches and recliner chair and the tv had all the channels. The location was great! You can't beat being on the lake, and there were about 7 wineries within a 5 mile radius- which came in handy because we had some rainy days and did some wine tasting! Here's the only negative- like others mentioned, the air conditioner did not work in the one section of the house: the main kitchen/dining area and the 2 bedrooms above it. The unit is in a locked area on the very top floor which we didn't have access to (but I understand why you might not want renters messing with it) and even though we had the remote set, it was not cooling at all. We didn't call the owners about it because I had already read it in the past reviews, so I'm sure they knew about it. I think if that was fixed, or even an extra window unit in the kitchen would help that space. If that were fixed, I'd definitely give it 5 stars. Bottom line- it is a great house and it felt like home, with everything we needed! I would recommend this house to our friends, as I'm sure the air conditioner will be fixed- the owners were very prompt at responding to any questions/ emails that I had. Oh- and if you have a boat, Roy's Marina is very close and convenient (for a small fee you can put it in the water and pay a daily fee to store your trailer), but we went about 3 miles farther right outside Geneva and put the boat in the Geneva Welcome Center and public dock for free.

Excellent location ,Quite and peaceful. We had a great vacation !
House had some issues. AC not adequate for size of house Very hot on right side of house basically no AC on that side. Some Steps from deck to yard were in very bad shape and dangerous.Hot tub was dirty and only used once. FYI No maintenance man came on friday as told only came to pick up trash.
Would suggest an out door shower if allowed to off set septic issues.
A Kitchen door blind to block off blinding sun and heat in the morning. Both screen doors did not work.
House was very clean and good linens upon arrival.
Overall House and amenities were very good. Just a few things that need to be addressed if re - booking.

Excellent location for a great summer getaway! We had a family reunion over the Memorial Day weekend and we had a great time at this house. The place is quite large with two kitchens, four bedrooms and large family room. The additional bonus was the game room in the basement with pool table. The boardwalk is nice and one can rent/ bring boats, kayaks etc to enjoy the lake. Overall very nice place!

TVs in bedrooms did not work... no service. But, we didn?t need them. If a family or group was stuck inside due to inclement weather, we could see how that may be an issue. Manager in charge of property was nice, attentive, and 100% available. She even made sure our steps and walkway were treated with salt after a coating of snow.

Beautiful view of Senaca Lake. Many steps to gain access to the property anyone with mobility issues should not stay here. Amenities were a little less than expected. For $400 a night (off season) we expected a higher quality of linins, dishes and other items such as nice pillows. Bedroom number 4 is very small and not very comfortable for 2 people. Only 1 bedroom is handicapped accessible the others require stairs, some of which are curved and steep.

Cheryl, thanks for taking the time to leave this review! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the views of the lake, and we appreciate your feedback. We have passed your comments along to the homeowner so any necessary changes can be made. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to create an even better guest experience going forward! Best, The Evolve Team
The property is just beautiful. You cannot beat it. Sleeps 12 comfortably. Close to everything you need. The management and owners were very kind and responsive. The water situation is a little problematic --- only one person to shower at a time / dishwasher load running at once. No hairdryers so be sure to bring your own. I would bring extra towels if I traveled back again. TVs are new with HDMI cables in case you want to bring your own Apple TV or Roku. Grill and hot tub worked like a charm. Would definitely return in the summer time.

The home was very nice and was right on the water with beautiful views from the deck. The home is very large but needs another bathroom, especially on the side they called the in-law quarters, and the air conditioner was not able to cool the house properly. The location cannot be beat for proximity to Geneva and the wineries. Highly recommend Ports Restaurant which is two miles away, but do not recommend the Belhurst Castle which is three miles away. We were a party of seven middle aged couples and had a wonderful extended weekend stay.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lakeside Harmony on Seneca Lake. The property has two kitchens (of which we only used one), four bedrooms, and three bathrooms; all of which were very clean and spacious (especially the master bedroom and great room with lake views). This property is absolutely amazing: from the lakefront (sunrise) views to the large game room complete with a TV, poker tables, pool table, and Foosball table, and many more. The location is very convenient as well. It is a 10 minute drive to the Geneva Wegmans and a 5-30 minute drive to MANY wineries. There is some grass between the house and the dock where we played Kan Jam and cornhole. The dock was very nice to sit and relax, either while reading or having a cup of coffee or wine. The water was remarkably clear most of the days, and it was still warm enough to go swimming, albeit being the first week in September. Checking out was very simple. We had to take out the trash and load the dishwasher, but not much else. The cleaners showed up right at 10 am, and were very nice. The only two minor negative comments were that: 1.) none of the bathrooms were directly connected to the bedrooms and 2.) the location of the fire pit wasn't ideal (it was right at the corner of the property by the lake, which was very nice, but only five or six people could sit by the fire in a semi-circle). Overall, this property was one of the better ones we have stayed in over the years, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a spacious location for multiple families. It comfortable sleeps at least 14 adults.

Loved this home! So much room for privacy if needed. Plenty of bathrooms for our party of 9. We had more than enough kitchen ware for cooking. Home was clean. We plan on booking again. The only thing I could think of is a bathroom in basement would be helpful. *This review was originally posted on VRBO for a stay in Oct-15
My brothers, sister and families rented this fun house the first week of July, 2016. We had a terrific time, there were plenty of beds, sheets, towels etc for all of us. We had between 11 and 13 folks staying there. We came prepared with paper products ( paper plates, paper towels, toilet paper, etc) which proved fortuitous, however there is plenty of kitchen ware for a group this size. We did have to call our contact to have the hot tub serviced and get a lesson on how best to use it, he came the next day. Our only complaints were the air conditioning, which wasn't a problem on the lower floor, but on the main floor at night, it never felt cool enough for us. However, this did not stop us from enjoying our stay. Maybe we can suggest a few more fans to get the air circulating in the rooms without the air conditioners. The only other note we would like to make is regarding the stairs. There are A LOT. OF STAIRS! There is a concrete stairway leading from the parking area to the house, with luggage and vacation baggage, we had quite a work- out before we got settled. Most of us didn't have a problem, but something to note for anyone unable to manage stairs, especially with luggage, etc. We appreciated how quickly our needs were met when we made a call. All in all, we loved our stay and would recommend it. *This review was originally posted on VRBO for a stay in Jul-16
Our group of two families shared this sprawling home on the west side of Seneca Lake. There are many wonderful factors to consider including spectacular views, a lovely large dock, fire pit, hot tub, comfortable beds, sufficient bathrooms, great location close to the city of Geneva, wonderful location for Wine Tasting, plenty of room to spread out and a kitchen large enough to prepare meals for four 4 adults and 5 teens. The only small issues we had were that a few of the rooms became very hot during a warm week in July. There is air conditioning but it's not fully central air so a few rooms tend to be warm. I'd recommend bringing extra fans to help circulate the air if your temps are going to be in the high 80s or above. I would also recommend adding some items such as large serving bowls and wooden spoons for those families that wish to cook in more often, we were lacking some basic cooking tools. Overall it was a fabulous stay and I wouldn't hesitate to book again for a large group. The sunrises are something to behold and worth the early rise! Seneca Lake is one of NY's gems for sure! *This review was originally posted on VRBO for a stay in Jul-16
