NO BETTER PRIVACY, VIEWS OR ACCESS TO WATER

Penn Yan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-10)

Lake level, newly built, 3000 sq. ft. of serenity next to 300 ft. of privacy, woods and fantastic lake views--two family rooms, each with TV/cable and two kitchens (up and down). [Can also rent one level to 1 or 2 couples.] Four separate bedrooms: #1-queen, #2-queen (upstairs), #3-two double beds, #4-queen (downstairs). Wireless Internet access is available. Use whole house or one level: 2 different rates--ask.

Perfect for couples or families; crystal clear waters with gradual walkin access, pristine shale beach and gorgeous stone framed gardens. Beach toys abound including horse shoe set and a tethered raft. Dock and bouys host two full boats.

Full view of sunset in all seasons, but view it in Summer from the dock, the grassy or shale beach areas, the upper deck with full surround sound. If YOU are the day's chief, then view that sunset from the Southside stone patio with gas grill all surrounded by gardens and privacy. Our guests fall so in love with the property that they come back year after year. So a gentle caution is that most prime weeks fill up by January.

Even if it poured rain everyday, the cottage is gorgeous enough to enjoy indoors; drinking in the view, a glass of wine and your favorite book. Or take that book to your deck and snuggle in before some late evening fishing from the dock.

Lake level ceilings are white-washed pine boards that beautifully reflect the late day sun bouncing off the water, creating a shimmering dappled movement that will make you smile. Three of the four huge bedrooms have a queen bed and the fourth room has two double beds, great for children or grandchildren.

Dozens of renters have said, 'This is exactly what we've been looking for.'

Check in time is 4 pm; checkout time is 11 am. Occasionally we have flexibility on times. Only addition to off and on season rates is a 4% Bed Tax and a cleaning fee of $100.

As one of 10 kids growing up on Keuka Lake all year round, we had a unique perspective and appreciation of all that the creeks, waterfalls, beaches and woods had to offer in the 1950s and 1960s. We felt sorry for people who could only come in the summer. It took nearly 20 years of being away with college, career, kid raising, and career again before I was reminded how important this place in the world is to my place in the world. And now I get to share with you my newer house, built in 2003. The more people who love this place as much as I do, the more it seems to come to life. Sunset watching, early morning dips to wake up, long lazy raft floats with kids--it's all there for the sharing. I've lived in many places on this planet yet always return to the beauty of Keuka; Boston for 6 years, Tucson for 14 years, interrupted by two years in Italy (Rome in 1981 and Balogna in 1988), DC for 9 years, then back to Keuka, where I'm truly at home.

Carol Worth purchased this house in 2003

I chose to buy back on Keuka's east side as a place to return home to. A place to enjoy for all but the few weeks I rent. The cove is perfect for quiet fishing to snorkeling.

WONDERFUL GROUP GETAWAY SPOT!

  • 4 of 5
This house was great for 4 couples to enjoy a fall weekend of visiting the Windmill, walks and wineries! The layout of the house is perfect for privacy yet plenty of room for all to enjoy the spacious living area. We were very surprised that the owner walked into the house unannounced in the early evening of our first night. We thought it was very invasive. A phone call to see if all was ok would have sufficed. Bring paper products as there were no napkins and very little toilet paper.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed the house and treated it so well. I didn't realize I alarmed you and wish you had said something. You didn't hear me knocking as you were having so much fun. I only wanted to check to see if you needed instructions on how to run the remotes or fireplace lighting. Some renters prefer to be left alone and some feel abandoned if I don't stop by to greet them and answer questions. You were fine, so I answered a few questions and left. If I knew or was told my housekeeper didn't leave enough paper products, I certainly would have sent some down. I hope you come again and let me know your concerns next time.

AWESOME GET AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We ( 8 woman, for our annual girls weekend) had a wonderful fall weekend at this property. The location is amazing- private, right on the lake and peaceful. The house is well maintained and has everything in it- all you need to do is bring yourself, clothes and food. The owner, Carol, was a pleasure to work with. She was responsive to emails and was very accommodating to our schedule. My only regret is that we only had a weekend to spend there. We will definitely be back to this "slice of heaven."

OUR STAY AT PROPERTY 223693

  • 5 of 5
We just want to say how absolutely wonderful our vacation was!!! The property was even better than we expected. We had 8 adults and 2 young children and never felt crowded. All the bedrooms were very spacious and very comfortable. The upstairs level was where we spent most of our indoor time and there was more than enough room. Sitting on the porch was one of the evening highlights with magnificent views of the lake and sundown. The lake was very clean and there is a nice gradual slope that was great for the children. It was also very private. There is noone to the left and we only saw a few people to our right a few times. We were also very grateful that our dog was allowed. He;s afraid of the water but thoroughly enjoyed watching everyone swim and play in the lake!! We are already looking forward to our return!!!

Owner's Response: You are welcome back anytime; it is always such a treat when the trust you put in a renter, to treat your home with respect and leave it at least as good as you find it, is well placed.

WONDERFUL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We took a trip up to the Finger Lakes in the fall to explore the wineries and enjoy a weekend away from home. The lake house was amazing - we loved it! There were eight of us and the house was comfortable and had plenty of room for all of us. Carol was very helpful and welcoming. We would love to stay at the house again, it was a great experience.

THERE'S NOTHING LIKE KEUKA LAKE! IT FELT LIKE REURNING HOME.

There's nothing like Keuka Lake! It felt like reurning home.
  • 5 of 5
The Roche-Nicholson family grew up on Keuka lake, but have since moved to other parts of the nation. We returned this year for a family reunion, and this property not only exceeded our expectations, it rekindled all the memories, gratitude and connections among us that are so vital to any family.

The property was absolutely fantastic - spacious, well-organized, well-outfitted (linens, kitchen etc.), clean, newer amenities, TWO full kitchens, TWO docks with plenty of boat docking room, well-landscaped, internet and A/V equipment and most of all, fabulous decks, wonderful afternoon sun and evening sunsets! I will also affirm the below-written compliments to all be true. Many of our friends complimented and were impressed with the property.

Also, I am so grateful that the owners were accommodating of our 1 year old Golden Retriever, Finnegan. I wish I could post pictures to show you the amazing time he had and his introduction to the lake. hH swam forever, and when he wasn't in the water, he was pleasantly napping on the deck overlooking the beach. We adhered to keeping him out of the main level, but with all the decks and space, it worked out perfectly. Thank you Carol for continuing to allow pets!!!

The only drawbacks would include: 3 tiers of steps to the beach (but helped work off all the good food we ate), fairly small fire pit area and docks felt a bit shaky with several boards needing replacement.

I will say I was a bit nervous from a few of the reviews saying the owners stopped by frequently, wanting to make sure we had our privacy. However, this was not the case and I am very thankful I did not feel like there was a careful, hovering watchful eye over us. I respect that this is the owner's home off season, but I needed to feel at peace and as though I was back at a "slice of my own lake" again.

Carol, you have a beautiful property, and I cannot tell you in words how grateful myself and my family is for your generosity, openness and commitment to sharing the beauty and magic of Keuka lake. Thank you!!! We'll be back!!!
