About Todd Cerino

Todd Cerino purchased this House in 2014
Why Todd Cerino chose Penn Yan
Without a doubt, the main reason we purchased this home was for the views the property provides of Seneca Lake. The 3 walls of windows & sliding glass doors that lead out to the deck offer a breathtaking view of the lake and the patchwork of farms and vineyards on the eastern shore. The sunrise view is absolutely stunning. From day one we had a vision of what this house could be, and we made plans to renovate the house so that we could have a place to entertain our family and guests that was located right "in the middle" of the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. We renovated the house specifically for this purpose. We modified the floor plan by removing several interior walls & created a huge, flowing great room that combined the kitchen, dining area and family rooms together. We invite you to come and enjoy all that the Finger Lakes has to offer, and to take advantage of our location - right "in the middle" of the famed Seneca Lake Wine Trail along the western shore of Seneca Lake. Enjoy!

Scenic getaway for larger groups
We very much enjoyed our stay here. The location was good and the view of the sunrises over Lake Seneca was beautiful. The living area is good for larger groups. There is a slightly musty smell and the oven and some of the drawers could use some cleaning attention. Over all it is a great little place and I would stay there again!
Good, but with reservations
I stayed here with my parents and brother and we very much enjoyed the layout, the interaction with the horses next door, and the lovely view. However, a few aspects need to be addressed by the owner, and as they couldn’t possibly be new issues, they need to be listed here:
1) The coffee maker barely works. It takes 30-45 to brew 8 cups of coffee. No exaggeration.
2) The mattresses are inexcusably bad, and probably 20-30 years old. They’ve caved in and if you roll over, the noise is loud enough to wake a partner.
3) The internet is reminiscent of dial up speed. Your 5g connection much is faster. This needs to be updated.
4) There’s a mild musty smell inside. And it’s not the horses, which again, are a treat.
Thanks for your feedback, we take it very seriously. We take pride in our home as we stay there with family and friends- just like our guests. Since we received this feedback: 1. Coffee Maker – Replaced. 2. Beds- including mattresses, box springs and frames – Replaced, all are brand new. 3. Internet. We are exploring alternatives. Unfortunately, options in this area are very limited for everyone. 4. We personally inspected for a musty smell (there was none). However, a dehumidifier as installed in the basement as a precautionary measure.
Great view, great location, great open floor plan , great communication
Penn Yan Pleasure
Our family get together was enhanced by the open floorplan of this house. The view from the back deck was serene. Our granddaughters enjoyed watching the neighbor's horses frolic and there was plenty of room to run. The adults appreciated the easy access to many wineries. Go to Ports Cafe for dinner...excellent food and service!!!
Had a great time!
Had a great time. Would use this property again!
Beautiful location! Gorgeous sunrises!
We had a great girls weekend! The house is incredibly spacious! The kitchen is great for cooking and entertaining. We cooked a nice meal one night and then went to Ports Cafe for dinner the next. Morning coffee on the big deck looking at the lake was amazing!!
It was a great weekend and we look forward to coming back again.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We're very happy that you enjoyed your time staying at our home and all that the area has to offer. The house really is the PERFECT venue for a girls group, or for groups of 8-10. Our goal for this home was to create a layout that would have as much appeal as possible to families and groups traveling together to visit the wine trail. Also, thank you so much for leaving the house is such great condition at the end of your stay. We'd love to have you back as our guests in the future!
Located on the world-famous Seneca Lake Wine Trail and on 2 acres of level lawn with 180 degree, unobstructed views of one of the widest parts of Seneca Lake.
