About this listing

Enjoy peace and tranquility at our farm overlooking Seneca Lake. The house is an 1830's Federal Style home with many original features. The decor is simple but classic.

The space

Beautiful historic home, the quiet of country but just miles from the action.
Baliview Farm is located 5 miles from downtown Geneva, home of Hobart and William Smith Colleges, amid lush, rolling farmland and nearby Seneca Wine Trail, many local craft breweries, cideries, Seneca Lake State Park, marinas, outlet shopping, restaurants, local farmers’ markets and numerous other attractions.

One of our best features at the house is the spectacular, clear view of Seneca Lake from the back of the house and the skyline of Geneva at night. You will be treated to amazing sunsets on an almost nightly basis in all seasons.

If you are traveling for business or pleasure you will feel welcomed, rested and pampered here.
There are presently two rooms available: The Cottage Room with twin beds (1 or 2 people) or another guest room with king size bed. Both rooms have access to an ample bathroom in the hallway with large stall shower. The pricing is set up for one room/two people with an additional fee for another person which would constitute using the 2nd room. Please contact me if this is confusing.

A simple breakfast, continental style, can be arranged depending on your travel plans.

Important: I require 48 hours notice in advance of booking a reservation. I can sometimes accommodate less so do check with me but that is my normal protocol.

Della's place is beautiful inside and out. If you are visiting Seneca Lake for wine touring it's a perfect spot.

Della was warm and welcoming, she emailed us a few days before our stay to confirm our estimated arrival time, which changed on arrival day due the weather, Della was very accommodating. Our room, as well as her entire home was beautiful, she made us feel at home immediately. Della recommended restaurants, and wineries/breweries that we truly enjoyed. We were on way shortly after our lovely continental breakfast, feeling as we were leaving a friend. Thank you Della for opening your home to us.

As new parents, my wife and I were looking forward to a weekend get away in the Finger Lakes. Baliview Farms was exactly what we hoped it would be both in terms of relaxation and respite as well as convenience as it is located near downtown Geneva and also dozens of wineries. Della was extremely hospitable and wonderful company. She offers a continetal breakfast with fresh fruit, locally pressed juice, strong coffee, and homemade muffins and scones (delicious!) We plan to visit this area again soon and will certainly choose Baliview Farms for our next get away!

I know I've admired this house quite a few times before... but when we arrived I was blown away. Della, the owner is one of the warmest and nicest on the lake. My wife and I stayed here being local to one of our favorite wineries. We had a very comfortable stay with a beautiful breakfast and AMAZING coffee. She gave us ideas on what to do around the lake with great knowledge of fantastic hidden places. The best part though was her pony, peaches. It was wonderful waking up with a beautiful view of the lake and equestrian companions grazing in the back yard. We come up quite often and can't wait to come back and stay! Thank you so much for being so warm and welcoming!
