The Chosen Place is a wonderful spot for a summer vacation. The owners were very helpful and just a phone call away with answers to any questions. The photos show exactly how lovely and homey the cottage is. The only drawback of the cottage is the very steep stairs to the 2nd bedroom on the lower level. They weren't difficult to navigate, but definitely would not work for someone with a bad knee or hip. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The house is a great size for 4 to 6 people, and the view, well the view from the porch deck made me smile all through my morning pot of coffee. Since the cottage is close to both Naples and Canandaigua, there's so much to do and you can just get up and go without really planning ahead. Just check the weather and take off for an hour or two, or for the day. There were 4 wineries within a few miles, all with gorgeous views and pleasant, helpful staff. Of course there are many places to eat out. Our favorites were Roots Cafe and Lynnie Lou's ice cream. We visited Sonnenburg Gardens, a beautiful mansion with acres of flowers on the grounds. Canandaigua is a gorgeous town with lots to see. I hope to return soon to the cottage and would recommend it highly.
If you're looking for a picture perfect view of Lake Canandaigua from the deck of your own private cottage, than this is the place for you! Watch the sun rise over the hills and the lake, enjoy your meals and watch the hummingbirds visit the flower baskets in the evening. Daniel and Rosemarie greeted us upon arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. They also gave us suggestions based on our interests of what to see and do in the area. This cottage is 5 minutes from Naples, where you can visit two local wineries, and eat at several wonderful restaurants and hike through the water and swim under the waterfall at Grimes Glenn. The location is convenient to Canandaigua, state parks, hiking trails and more. We had an amazing, relaxing vacation and hope to return next year!
Originally from this area, we were looking for a dynamic view of the lake and that is exactly what The Chosen Place offered. The cottage was immaculate, inside and out. We spent most of our time on the large deck, enjoying the breeze, barbequing, enjoying the view of the lake, or gazing at the stars at night over a candlelit dinner. The extensive grounds are very private, with flowers and winding trails gracing the property. Wineries, swimming, boating, or the small town of Naples are all close by. The owners are caring hosts, who have thought of everything to make the stay perfect! We can’t wait to return to this very special place.
It's hard to add to the other reviews here, except to say we found it equally wonderful. The house was immaculate; the hosts were perfect. But the place. Oh, the place. Spending the past week there gave us the both the relaxation and the recharge we needed. There is no more beautiful view in the area -- and it's yours in privacy! The location was also perfect. Quiet and private, but close to many activities. Thank you for a fantastic vacation!

My husband and I recently spent a lovely, relaxing week at The Chosen Place. From this quaint spotless and very homey treetop perch, we enjoyed wonderful views of Lake Canandaigua, listened to the birds, enjoyed the big sky views both day and night. Our gracious hosts provided everything for our comfort. We spent much of the week on the lovely deck overlooking the lake. It was such a private and comfortable spot, yet not far from activity when we wanted it. We hope to return some day soon.
