SECLUDED LAKE FRONT COTTAGES

Keuka Park Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

We invite you to a vacation retreat the likes of which you won't see anywhere else. These 2 cottages have been in our family for 5 generations and now we look forward to sharing them with you. Watch the sunset from the beach or on one of the porchs. Enjoy the advantages of having 2 cottages and 2 kitchens. The beauty of knotty pine throughout gives the feeling of a true vacation retreat.

The large cottage is called 'Twix Pines'(amongst the pines) . It has 2 bedrooms with double beds and a third bedroom with bunk beds. Laundry is located on the second floor. The living room has a couch that opens to a queen size bed. The porch is spacious enough to accomodate dining plus an area that includes chairs and a plush futon. Plan to spend plenty of time here eating, relaxing and playing games late into the night.

The second 'honeymooner' cottage we call JaTo (J-toe) after our father and uncle. It is a favorite with everyone. It has one bedroom with a double bed. The cozy kitchen and living area is bright and fully equipped. The couch folds out to a queen size bed. French doors leading to the porch provide privacy for relaxing or sleeping on the futon while listening to the lapping of the waves below you.

The huge 350 feet of private beach front means lots of room for relaxation and entertaining or playing a game of horseshoes. There's a firepit for all to gather at in the evenings. If you're staying on Labor Day weekend get some flares and enjoy the 'Ring of Fire' with all the other 'lakers'.

Cross the gully bridge on the beach and pitch a tent for camping fun. There is a rowboat and 2 kayaks for your fishing and paddling pleasure. Walk across the road and you can hike over 40 acres of woodland, have a scavenger hunt or picnic. Climb up the gully and look for salamanders. If you want to rough it pitch a tent in the clearing. (camp fires on the beach only)

We're sure you will create treasured memories and we hope you become a part of our extended family by making Twix Pines a family tradition.

We are a multi generational family who are scattered coast to coast. On the west coast we have families in Portland, OR and on the east coast families in Rochester and Syracuse NY.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1937

Our grandparents bought Twix Pines during the Depression when cottages were few and far between. They added JaTo, named after our father and uncle, after WW II so they would have a special place of their own. They loved the beauty and peace of Keuka lake. They enjoyed all the seasons with hunting, fishing and summers spent relaxing and entertaining.

West Bluff Dr. is quiet and very pedestrian friendly. People enjoy walks with the family and bike riding. There are many activities to enjoy in the surrounding area from golfing or playing a game of tennis at picturesque Keuka College to antiquing, visiting the Windmill Farmers Market or touring the many wineries. Choose a lakeside restaurant or take a cruise on the Esperanza Rose and then up the hill to dine at the historic Esperanza mansion which overlooks the lake.

FAMILY VACATION

  • 4 of 5
Our family enjoyed our stay and were pleased with the location and all the extra toys to play with. We revisited Seneca Farms, The Windmill and some of the wineries. The fishing was great and 3 people in our family caught their first fish. Everyone gave it a thumbs up even though the dishwasher was not working and the cabins could have used a good cleaning. The worst was the mold in the bathroom. We have passed the Keuka Lake experience to two more generations. Everyone agreed life is great at the lake.

Owner's Response: Reviews of our guests matter!
We tried a new cleaning service this year and unfortunately they were unable accomplish all cleaning tasks within the short period of time between renters. As a result we will be going back to our original cleaning company.
We're also improving the bathrooms including installing tile floors and a new shower.
Twix Pines is a special place and we will work to keep it that way.

BEAUTIFUL SETTING

  • 3 of 5
The location of these cottages was great. It is by far the largest and most private beach on the lake. The pictures accurately reflect the cottages; they are older, but that is part of the charm. The only down side was the cleaners had done a poor job of preparing the rental. When this was reported to the owner, she resolved it fairly.

TWIX PINES 2 CABINS

  • 4 of 5
Two cabins are great for the size of our family reunion. The beach front and toys are well used and enjoyed. Our family had a good time together.
Two years ago we rented Twix Pines. I thought the cabins were cleaner two years ago. I understand how difficult it is to keep old buildings up to par but alot of things were let go. Just cobwebs, floors needed better cleaning and baths were moldy.
I noted last time that the light in dining room in main house should be repaired. I don't think that was done.
Towels were short but that was corrected the day I called with the problem.
The areas around the lake were fun to visit. Hammonsport & PenYan .
I would recommend the property to friends, but would hope the condition would improve.
Best of luck with the sale of the properties. They are a treasure.

PERFECT FOR GET TOGETHERS..

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage as a place for all of our New York family and friends to get together and relax. It was perfect. We boated over from the harbor and noticed right away it has one of the very nicest beaches on the entire shore. The house was so gorgeous, antiques and special touches. Another important thing we noticed is that the sun hits this beach during the perfect time- we wouldn't have know to look for that. We have a new baby and found everything to be secluded and quiet enough for long sleeps and we kept our windows open and listened to the lake at night. Days were spent innertubing behind the boat, swimming off the dock and wine tasting, evenings with a campfire on the beach..this was a fantastic location for all of that. We loved the feel of the home- very New York lakeside..and the owners were great. We highly recommend this lovely set of cottages to anyone looking to relax...the lake water was crystal clear and perfect.

FAMILY-FRIENDS WEEKEND

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Twix Pines the weekend after Labor Day 2011!! The weather wasn't perfect (rain one day) but the beach just fabulous! The beach and ease in getting to the lake for our older family members was a major draw, along with space for over 10 people between the two cottages. The cottages are very homey and we spent much time eating and playing games on the sun porch of the larger cottage. There was plenty of room for our 20 foot boat on the dock and the truck and trailer in the parking area across the street.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
I invited my extended family to join us for a long Labor Day weekend at Twix Pines for my 40th birthday. We all had a wonderful time! The property is lovely, and very well cared for. You can see the details built into these two cottages over the years. The fully operational antique windows in particular really caught my eye! We had a plenty of room for one pair of grandparents, three adult children and their spouses, 5 kids aged 7 - 12, and one big dog. Plenty of privacy, yet also plenty of places to be together. We could all sit down for meals on the porch at once.Grills worked well. The beach and landscaping is really lovely and private. We felt like we were alone the entire weekend until we took a boat ride and saw how many people there really are on this lake! Campfires every night, too! Definitely bring water shoes -- it's a pebbly beach (no sand), so you need them on the beach and as you walk into the water. There's also a little bit of seaweed off the beach, but you can swim right over it. I would definitely come back!!!
