About Us


We invite you to come visit us in scenic Finger Lakes wine country.

Our love of the water and nature led us to purchase our lakeside property in 1986. It was while camping on the property for years that we found our vision was to eventually build a Seneca Lake vacation retreat to enjoy vacations and weekend getaways with our large family, and with friends. Originally from Syracuse, we had resided in the Rochester, New York suburb of Webster for 27 years, and in 1995 our dream was realized when we were able to build our original lake house – a three-bedroom, cedar contemporary home.

Eventually spending more and more time at Seneca, and growing in our appreciation and excitement for the entire Finger Lakes Region, and the beautiful Seneca Lake/Dundee, NY area in particular, we began envisioning our property as a permanent residence. Then came the idea to expand it into a bed and breakfast, where we could offer accommodations and hospitality to a wider circle. Our move to Seneca Lake coincided with our expansion project in the summer of 2003, doubling the size of our lake home.

Our B&B continues to be a labor of love for us. The open and casual interior has grown out of our desire to retain the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere of our original vacation home in its beautiful, natural setting. Nestled in the woods, on a hillside, with glistening Seneca Lake beckoning on our eastern front, and our courtyard and garden on the hill to the west, nature’s bounty surrounds us.

Each year hundreds of new guests discover Sunrise Landing, joining our returning guests, many of whom have been coming for years. This coming season we are excited to be able to offer a new option. Our beautiful Iris Suite was complete last year and this year we will offer a new cottage rental option for both the Iris and the Sunflower.

We invite you to come and enjoy all Sunrise Landing Bed and Breakfast has to offer.

Your Hosts –
