Bristol Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 adults, maximum)
Begin your day with the morning sun rising slowly over Vine Valley, and shining across the clear, sparkling waters of Canandaigua Lake.
On a quiet evening, after a round of golf or a day in the sun on the water, relax on the dock with a cool drink and watch the moon rise over the top of Whaleback Hill.
The Red Cottage is ideal for vacation get-togethers with friends and family, a relaxing retreat, laid-back fishing getaway, honeymooning, a quite, secluded, autumn weekend on the lake for reflection and renewal, or just plain loafing. Consider the option of a fall rental when the autumn leaves are at their peak.
The Red Cottage has been the summer and fall home to three generations of our family, and was renovated and designed to accommodate family enjoyment. Treat yourself to the peace & beauty of going to sleep and waking up alongside the shore of beautiful Canandaigua Lake.
The Red Cottage interior is bright and breezy with knotty pine throughout the first floor, which consists of: master bedroom downstairs w/queen bed and 1/2 bath; hardwood/carpeted living room with wicker couch and love seat; telephone, Cable TV, WiFi internet, DVD; a second 1/2 bath; full kitchen w/ breakfast bar and built-in pine bench and trestle table, microwave, all cooking and eating utensils.

Large front deck overlooking the lake, and cantilevered dock w/seating at water’s edge. Cottage is fully heated. Gas grill, 2 kayaks, and canoe. Sleeps 8 adults. BYO linens and towels.
The Red Cottage was once a grape packing house owned by Capt. George Stemple, a local steamboat captain, and is located on the southwest shore of beautiful Canandaigua Lake in a protected cove, between Cook’s Point and Long’s Point, called ”Stemple’s Landing.“ This landing was one of many stopping points for steamboats on the lake, during the 1800’s and early 1900‘s, picking up grapes and passengers for transport to Canandaigua.
The Red Cottage location offers both seclusion and convenient access to many points of interest, shops and restaurants in the area:
