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.
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.
