MODERN WATERFRONT COTTAGE ON KEUKA LAKE - CLOSE TO PENN YAN & FINGER LAKES WINE!

Penn Yan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 4-6

Welcome to our little piece of heaven we like to call “The Meritage” - a completely remodeled cottage with all the modern conveniences. The cottage is located on a quiet lower lake road - perfect for walking the dog, taking an evening stroll or maybe a morning bike ride.

When you arrive you'll find a bottle of Finger Lakes wine and local coffee from Keuka Lake Coffee Roasters to get your vacation started. Your mornings can start with a cup of fresh coffee as the sun rises behind you, and your evenings can end with the sun setting across the lake and a glass of wine in hand.

The front door to this lovely cottage takes you into the living room area, artfully arranged to welcome warm conversations with friends or family. A comfortable queen-sized sleeper sofa and pair of matching armchairs make this a great place to catch up on the day’s events.

A large window behind the couch beautifully frames the evening sunsets. Twin bookcases are filled with books and games for you to enjoy during your stay, as well as a flat-screen TV with digital cable, DVD player and DVR.

The living room is open to the dining area with seating for 6 and the completely remodeled kitchen where you’ll find everything you need to prepare a wonderful lakeside meal.

Off the kitchen a laundry room with a new washer and dryer, as well as kitchen “staples” in the pantry area. To the left of the kitchen you’ll find our remodeled bathroom with tub and shower.

The master bedroom features high ceilings with a fan and the original wooden beams. Buckwheat Therapy pillows - handmade by our neighbors two doors down - might change the way you sleep forever! The bedroom also is equipped with cable TV and an alarm clock. A large dresser and armoire can be used to pack your belongings away so you feel more like home. The master bedroom also has a second door leading outside.

The guest bedroom just off the dining area has a double bed and soothing decor.

Outside, friends and family can sit together on the deck, enjoying dinner or a glass of wine and taking in the sight of Keuka Lake. There's a table for six - and a slightly covered space in case it rains! You'll also find both a charcoal grill (for the purist) and a gas grill (for the realist), as well as an outdoor fireplace.

Walk five steps off the deck and you've reached the water. There's plenty of swimming space, and you can dive in off the end of the dock. Also at the end of the dock are two Adirondack chairs.

There's so much to do in the surrounding area. The biggest attraction is the Finger Lakes Wine Trail, and you'll find two of the best wineries within a mile of The Meritage.

You can taste all kinds of wine - from world-class Rieslings, to Pinot Noir, to award-winning dessert wines! And most wineries provide stunning views of the various Finger Lakes. If you don't want to drive, we have information on limo and private transportation services.

Shoppers will love The Windmill Farm and Craft Market, just a short drive away on Saturdays. Some of our favorite restaurants are nearby, and we provide recommendations in the form of a personal Google Map for every guest. There are many ways to enjoy the lake itself - from renting a boat and water skiing, to fishing, to bringing your own equipment like kayaks and rafts! We highly recommend Regan's Canoe and Kayak if you'd like to rent canoes, kayaks or even paddle boards. They know the cottage well and will even drop-off/pick-up everything for you right to the beach!

While we don't recommend working while on vacation, there's certainly room to work if you must! Guests enjoy high-speed wireless Internet and unlimited long-distance calling.

We're Evan and Morgan Dawson of Rochester, NY, and we take deep, unashamed pride in local produce, wines, and business in the Finger Lakes and western New York. We're the happy owners of The Meritage Cottage on the east side of Keuka Lake. We want our guests to know about the rarely discovered local wonders. We'll help arrange day trips, make reservations, and generally make you feel like you're in a cozy, modern B&B - only we're not there!

Cheers, and see you at The Meritage!

Evan & Morgan

Morgan Dawson purchased this cottage in 2006

Morgan grew up just a mile north of the cottage - where her family still lives - and purchasing a cottage in this location was a no-brainer. The quiet lower lake road is the perfect spot to go for an evening run, bike ride, or walk with the dogs. In fact, it's such an ideal location that we have to convince ourselves it's real. We had searched for a rental property for several years and found nothing like this. It's a cliche, but it's true: This is a dream property.

Wonderful time

Evan & Morgan - What a wonderful time we had. I believe we went to every winery you could in four days. Our favorite memory is sitting on the dock with the sunrise and having our lab swim until we had to pull him out. Thank you for making your home like our home. Now back to Pittsburgh!

So much beauty

Morgan & Evan,

So much beauty, so little time. Thanks for making our mini-vacation truly memorable. We hiked Taughannock Falls, found homemade canolis in Watkins Glen, visited a few wineries, and spent each evening on the deck!

Perfect spring weather. And the water is so clear!

Thanks for the decompression time. I hope to return soon. And the bottle of wine waiting for us was perfect!

Spectacular!

  • Submitted: Apr 19, 2014
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
What a spectacular event I arrived to see with the sunset on the deck. The cottage is the utmost in comfort and amenities, and the comeraderie, out of control. Unmatchable.

Versus a trip to Knoxville, TN, which would likely have been awesome as well, I have no complaints.

Location is great, cottage is most comfortable with so many thoughts of little necessities in mind. There are absolutely NO inconveniences. Absolutely all positive experiences and thoughts -- life is definitely good here! Not happy to have to head home...

Thanks bunches!

great week

Well what a great week. Really did not leave the cottage other than to get more bait. Came here to relax and fish, and boy did we do that. For those that fish -- caught several bass right off the dock. Anchored the boat just past the yellow dive dock and caught 8 lb bass!

Love the location. Thanks for the wine. Had it on our last night by the fire.
