Completely remodeled turn of the century lake home. With all the original architecture, this home has TONS of appeal to vacationing guests! A rare find on Keuka Lake, and only a mile from Penn Yan, this 3 bedroom 2 bath Victorian home was lovingly upgraded in 2006 and has panoramic views of the lake from every room in the house.
The remodeled well-appointed kitchen features stainless steel appliances, silestone countertops, wine glass holder & wine rack, maple cabinets, ceramic tile floors & a ceiling fan. It is well-stocked with all the spices, utensils, pots & pans a gourmet chef could need! The dining room has panoramic lake views, country style dining table w/bench & chair seating for 10 & a ceiling fan. The spacious living room with breathtaking lake views features a huge fieldstone gas fireplace, which heats the entire first floor! A large, flat screen cable TV is mounted to the wall & can be enjoyed from every angle in the room. Two ceiling fans in the living room circulate the air to keep the home cool. Summer breezes off the lake can be enjoyed through beautiful French doors that open to the large covered porch, which also features 2 large ceiling fans. The house has air-conditioning.
The master bedroom has a queen bed, window seat for quiet reading space, a ceiling fan, TV with DVD/VCR player and panoramic views of the lake. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds, a queen futon, a ceiling fan, TV with DVD/VCR player and also has panoramic views of the lake. Both are upstairs. The 3rd bedroom is our bunk room. It is off the living room and down a few stairs. There is a set of bunk beds and a ceiling fan along with beautiful views of the lake.
The first floor living room has a queen and a full sleeper sofa for additional sleeping arrangements. First floor bath has a shower/tub combo. Second floor bath has a jetted jacuzzi tub with a washer/dryer in the closet.
A canoe & paddleboat, along with several life jackets, are available for your use. You only need to take a few steps into the house, out onto the large covered porch, onto the dock or into the water. Perfect for all ages!
The water in Keuka lake is crystal clear, the fish are very healthy, and the scenery is amazing. My buddy and I along with our families stayed at this lake house for 7 days. The two of us fished from sunrise to sunset everyday. We caught tons of large and small mouth bass as well as northern pike using stick baits, soft plastics, top water, and spinner baits. The same lures also caught jack perch, rock bass and sunfish.
All of these fish can be caught from the doc. We had a 19' bass boat that we brought to the camp. There is a public launch about a mile from the camp. It's very convenient. The doc accommodated the boat just fine. There's a marina next to the boat launch (ideal location).
We caught large mouths up to 5lbs and 2.5 lbs small mouths. If you like to eat fish, this is the lake to do it. I would recommend targeting perch one day and making a meal out of them. I cooked a variety of fish and the perch were everyone's favorite.
An overall great experience!
This cottage was the perfect location for a getaway and even though the weekend was cool we were toasty warm in this beautiful cottage. Nancy concerned about our warmth and even brought in extra heaters. the cottage is well equipped and it is easy to feel immediately at home. the porch is gorgeous, bedroom areas generous with space and the living room was more than adequate for socializing. a wonderful, get away spot with lots to do nearby although why anyone would want to leave the front porch is beyond me!!!
Everything about this property was perfect. It was clean and roomy. The owner, Nancy, was very pleasant and helpful. The view of the lake from the porch was phenomenal. We had coffee in the morning out there and drinks in the evening. Great location. Central to many of the area's wineries and shopping spots.
I grew up in Penn Yan and haven't been "back home" other than for weddings/funerals in quite a few years. My wife and I, along with our son and my wife's sister who is physically challenged, spent 2 weeks in this lovely, well-maintained home. The only disappointment we had with the house itself was that the 1st floor bedroom is a very small room at the back of the main stairway ... up 4 steps and then down another 4 but with the staircase railing and hanging onto the bunk bed, my sister-in-law was able to access it. The driveway to the house off the main road is also a little treacherous but parking is right at the door which is very convenient!!
We had coffee every morning on the covered porch (sometimes even catching a beautiful sunrise) and ended many days with a glass of wine looking at an incredible display of stars over the peacefulness of the lake. Nights found us falling asleep to the gentle sounds of the lake lapping on the shoreline.
Neighbors are warm and welcoming and the area is extremely quiet for a peaceful, relaxing vacation.
The property is conveniently located close to the Village of Penn Yan, The Windmill, Wineries, etc whatever you want to do or see.
I stayed here for a long weekend with 6 of my friends for a girls' weekend. The house is beautiful, inside and out! The location was great and waking up to the sounds of the lake couldn't be beat. It was very clean and we had everything we could have possibly needed. I would absolutely return at some point in the future. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
Beautiful and well maintained home, right on Keuka Lake. This is a perfect place for a laid back vacation with friends and family. We rented this house for a week. The owners were gracious and courteous and we instantly available to help when I had any questions. The pictures on this site don't do it justice as to how ideal this spot really is. The house was immaculate when we arrived and had all the amenities you could want. The kitchen was fully stocked with every type of pot or pan you could want. There was a small fire pit to the side that my family enjoyed a couple of nights. Even though it was a bit too chilly to swim, there were many other activities that kept us entertained including paddleboating and visiting the area wineries. The Windmill open on Saturdays was an incredible hodgepodge place where different local vendors come. Downtown Penn Yan and Hammondsport were delightful and full of friendly people. This was a great place to make memories with my family. I would recommend it to others, definitely. Thank you.
The exterior features include 111 ft. of natural beach and retaining wall in front of the home, a large dock to moor your boat, large covered porch for entertaining, gas grill for all your outdoor cooking, fire pit with Adirondack chairs for evening campfires, roasting s'mores or just relaxing.
