During the week following Christmas, my brother and sister-in-law rented a house in Himrod, NY on Seneca Lake. Winter’s a great time to rent here because many wineries are open and you’ll get personalized attention, most of the museums are open, winter sports are in full swing and rental rates are lower. The evening before our visit, we got almost a foot of snow. Although we couldn’t find a good place to go sledding, that didn’t prevent us from enjoying the outdoors. Afterwards? Warm chili, a hot fire and wonderful memories!
