COZY AND CHARMING LAKESIDE HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Penn Yan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Welcome to our Home-away-from-home! This is truly a charming retreat from the everyday rat-race. 'Whispering Waters' is a year-round home and is located only 3 minutes from downtown Penn Yan on the Sunny east-side of Keuka Lake. The property is deep, sitting well off the main road, perfect for peace and quiet or playing in the spacious yard. The year-round nature of the home makes it ideal for all seasons...don't miss Fall Foliage in the Finger Lakes!!!

Inside you'll find personal touches and comfortable appointments, not the sterile atmosphere of Rental Agency properties. The full kitchen is bright and cheery with plenty of counter space. Upstairs there are 2 full bedrooms(1 Queen bed, 2 Twins) with a sitting room(complete with game and puzzle library) and full-bath (shower). There is a spacious Master Bedroom with full-bath (shower/tub) on the south side. A 3rd full bath (shower) with laundry room is located off the living room. Also off the living room is a fabulous sun room overlooking the lake and waterfront, with full dining table and sleeper sofa for extra sleeping space. In the warmer weather relax on the new deck which also overlooks the lake. The views are stunning, especially at sunset.

For water activity, the staircase leads to some of the finest lakefront available on Keuka Lake. The natural pebble beach and gradual entry swimming area are ideal for families with children.

Activities in the area are abundant for all seasons. If you like wine-tasting, you'll have close to 100 wineries to choose from between the Keuka and Seneca Wine Trails. There is even a winery only a quarter-mile walk from the house!

About Lori Dahlberg

I grew up in Penn Yan, and although I've lived in many states along the way, my heart has always been rooted here in the Finger Lakes. My family lives in New Jersey now, but we spend every summer vacation on Keuka Lake. Our children are learning, as I did, all the joy that comes with lake living. They are making lasting friends and memories every year.

Lori Dahlberg purchased this house in 2003

Why Lori Dahlberg chose Penn Yan

There are so many things to do in this area that we NEVER get bored. We always have a list as long as my arm of things we want to do, and places we want to see, but we never seem to finish the list...it's just too hard to leave the lake!

What makes this house unique

'Whispering Waters' is located in the best place possible: just far enough from town to feel that you're 'away from it all', but close enough that you can get in for whatever you may need in only a couple of minutes. I've seen a lot of lakefront, but the swimming area we have is so nice and gradual, and almost completely weed-free that I can't imagine finding better anywhere on any lake!

Great location for your Finger Lakes vacation

  • 5 of 5
My 2 60-something women friends and I travel together each year and have been doing so or about 30 years. We always seem attracted to water, and this is a perfect location for staring at water all week. Of course, there is ever so much more to do in this location other than staring at a gorgeous lake just outside your window and deck. Wineries abound! In fact, there is an excellent and beautiful winery just down the street, a 2 minute ride, if that: Keuka Springs Winery. There are good restaurants also within a quick drive: our favorite was Top of the Lake with outdoor seating overlooking the lake and excellent food. We also took a dinner cruise on Lake Seneca with Captain Bill's Seneca Lake Cruises. Spent a day at the Women's Rights Historical Park in Seneca Falls. AND a day in the amazing Watkins Glen State Park. And then to have the good fortune to return to this lovely lake house each night was a pleasure. The deck is AMAZING, and although swimming season may be coming to an end this year, the lake water is crystal clear and inviting. It was wonderful to have a swim at the end of a busy, but leisurely travel day. A few ducks greeted us every evening. Wonderful driving! -- the area is gorgeous, lovely country.
The owner communicates well and quickly. It seems you should email, not call. Even when we had some questions during the week, she responded. My friends and I have traveled quite a bit during our 30 years or so, and we each agreed that THIS vacation was exceptional.

Perfect Get Away

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was perfect - lots of parking, easy access to the water, plenty of room to seat a large group for dinner. The kitchen had anything and everything we ever could have needed to cook and serve with. We were fortunate that even though it was late September we could still swim in the crystal clear water. The neighbor was wonderfully helpful (supplied us with water shoes which we never thought we'd need at that time of the year) and informative about local breweries and wineries. The layout of the cottage provided plenty of privacy for 3 couples and having 3 bathrooms was wonderful when it came to getting ready in the morning. The only thing that would have made it better would have been if the indoor fireplace was usable (but we knew that before we went so it wasn't a surprise). The location was perfect - close enough to a grocery and liquor store to pick up anything you forget but not in the middle of a congested area. Also only a short distance to several wineries and breweries.

The owners were VERY helpful and easy to work with and made the check in/check out process very seamless!

I would definitely recommend this cottage to couples or a family.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sharon! I'm so glad you all enjoyed your stay! We will keep your comment about the fireplace in mind. It will require quite a bit of work to make that a safe option, but I know it would be nice on cool nights. Thank you for your comments!

We stayed at this house from 07/13/2013 thru 07/20/2013. Family of three, Dad(52), Mom(53), Son(19). This was one of the BEST rental properties we ever had! It was VERY CLEAN, and had EVERY amenity you could ever need, really it did! The property is well maintained. The deck overlooking the lake was absolutely fantastic for breakfast, lunch and dinner, not to mention just relaxing in the many chairs and tables provided. The lake front was just as comfortable and relaxing. The lake water is VERY clean and crystal clear. We enjoyed our lazy, quiet floats in the lake every day! (do take water shoes thought) The surrounding area is beautiful, and extremely quiet and private! This was one of the most relaxing, tranquil, and restful vacations we’ve had in a long time. If you want to experience that, then you won’t want to miss this place. Really!

Owner's Response: What a wonderful review! I'm so glad you enjoyed yourselves! Yes, you need water shoes... Those same Zebra mussels that keep our waters crystal clear do not make our bare feet very happy! Thank you so much for your comments!

We had another great stay on the lake. Had great weather, the house was perfect as well and great friends. Can't ask for anything more. The house is centrally located and met the neighbors this time. Perfect!
