We rented this house to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday with a family reunion--we needed something big enough to accommodate our extended family. This house was perfect--plenty of sleeping space and beautiful views. Although it was winter so we didn't use the lakefront at all, the fact that we were right on the lake gave us something wonderful to wake up to each morning. The rec room was a nice addition--it gave our (young adult) kids somewhere to hang out without their parents being in their teeth. I had chosen this house not only for the number of available beds, but also because the open floor plan allowed for our whole family to be together even while a few were in the kitchen preparing meals and so forth. It was clean, the beds were very comfortable; we purchased the linen service for simplicity's sake and found the provided bedding and towels were quite nice as well. There was ample parking for the many cars we ended up with over the weekend as people came down on their own schedules.
Although it's pretty close to the village, it's not an easy walk so you do need a car to get back and forth to the town of Canandaigua. Canandaigua is, of course, in the heart of the Finger Lakes and there are plenty of opportunities for wine tours and the like. Also, if you're visiting, don't miss the New York Wine and Culinary Institute. Our entire crew went in for a wine tasting and the young woman doing the wine tastings that day was an absolute treasure--we had a ball with her. We've been to the restaurant and taken classes there before--it's a must-do if you're in town.
Chuck was very easy to work with, including after the weekend when we had to collect a couple of forgotten items. I have no hesitation in recommending this location to others!
