This beautiful 5800 sq. ft. home is the quintessential Seneca Lake home! Built entirely out of stone in the early 1900's, this home captures the true meaning of Seneca, or "Place of Stone." The Yale Mansion offers an abundance of privacy, as it sits atop nearly 10 acres of old orchard land. Add 70 ft of serene lakefront property with a boathouse and permanent dock, and you have a perfect home, whether it be a Bed & Breakfast, or personal residence. The state-of-the-art kitchen and renovations, mix fluidly as they preserve the rich history and solid foundation of this estate for many years . Go to Listing

Lakefront Dock, Deck & Boathouse

  • The Yale Manor lakefront is for the enjoyment of all our guests.
  • You will be able to access the water from the dock, feel free to use the ladder to get in and out of the water. If you enter the water from the shorline water shoes are a must.
  • All lakefront in this area is privately owned, so the nearby docks do not belong to us nor do we have permission to use them. We own only our deck and the boathouse.
  • Feel free to take snacks and beverages to the lake. We like to separate returnables, recyclables, and trash. There are two garbage cans inside the boathouse—one for trash and one for recyclables—and we have the dumpster behind the main house. If you have returnables, please put them in a separate bag outside of the trashcans.
Smoking
  • Smoking is not permitted inside our home. Guests who smoke must be at least 100 feet from the B&B.
Windows
  • The windows are a bit tricky, and vary from room to room. Most of them have side locks, which need to be unlocked before you can move the window to another position. In the common rooms downstairs, especially the living room, this is a two-hand job—one to unlock the side locks and the other to hold the window so it doesn't come crashing down and break the glass.
Septic System
  • We are on a septic system here, which basically means nothing down the toilet except toilet paper. We have plastic liners in the bathroom wastebaskets for disposal of feminine products and the like. Because of the septic situation as well as environmental considerations, we will provide fresh towels every other day and fresh sheets every 3 days.
Common Spaces
  • The living room, library, front porch, lawn areas surrounding Yale Manor, and the lakefront dock and boat house are for the enjoyment of all guests.
  • We offer free wireless internet, and cable television, with a 46" HDTV in the living room, with premium channels. Cable TV and DVD's also available in the library.
Iron and Ironing Board
  • Chestertown and Brandywine have irons and ironing boards in their closets. If you want to borrow one, either ask the guest in one of those rooms or ask the innkeepers.
Hair Dryers
  • There are hair dryers in each of the four bathrooms.
Fireplaces
  • Monticello Rose, Stuarts Gold, Chestertown, and Yorktown rooms, all have fireplaces, but due to Insurance Compliance Issues, will not be in use. Therefore you can not burn anything in these fireplaces, nor have any Candles burning in the rooms. The Living room and Dining room fireplaces are available for use.
