This is not your typical rental cottage. This family owned and loved cottage is only available to a few families each year. The cottage was completely renovated in 2010, but retains it's charm and style. It is the perfect place for summer vacations, fall winery touring, or spring getaways. Home is completely winterized with radiant floor heating. Upstairs bedrooms have window air conditioning units if you need them. You can walk to the Switzerland Inn for lunch or dinner. You are close to wineries, the Windmill market, Lakeside Golf Club, and nearby waterfalls. The gourmet kitchen is enormous. New appliances including large refrigerator, dishwasher, separate icemaker, wine refrigerator, Bosch gas cook top, and antique farm style sink. The countertops and island in the kitchen are made from reclaimed french oak barrels from a local winery. Charming built- in breakfast nook has views to the lake with dining space for 2 or 10. Awesome sunroom/living room (16’x20’) has walls of windows, two-story ceiling with trusses, overlooks the lake with view of the bluff, and is great for relaxing and entertaining.

Master bedroom is on the main floor with private bath and Queen bed. Upstairs are two bedrooms, each with private bath/shower. Both have Queen beds, all with new mattresses and bedding. Upstairs also has a small bedroom for children with trundle/day bed. The terrace level with 2nd Master suite has King bed with private bath including antique claw foot tub and separate shower. Adorable powder room bath on main level. Office on main level with desk for computer use. Cottage includes high speed DSL Wireless Router, HD TV, DVD player. Lake water is filtered for drinking and cooking with a whole house ultra-modern UV light filtration system. There is a Den/family seating area on the terrace level with sofa (fold out queen size bed), card or dining table, and large storage space for water toys.

The porch runs the length of the house and then wraps to the lake side for wonderful outdoor entertaining. The porch was enlarged from its’ original design for expanded seating area and more space to view sunsets across the lake. There is a 2 person glider, a 2 person swing, a large dining table on the side porch, and lots of adirondack chairs. A lower terrace has a 8 person table for outdoor dining, gas and charcoal grills, and allows for access without steps through the beautiful grass lawn to the permanent 50 ft dock.

A tandem kayak, sunfish-class sailboat, and canoe are available for use. Boat lift will accommodate ski-boats up to 18 feet and 2000 lbs. The large lakeside lawn and beach is a gradual slope that allows for family to lounge, play ball, or relax. A stone fire pit is on the beach for family gatherings at night to watch the stars. An outdoor fireplace on the lake side lawn is a wonderful backdrop for family photos.

A private drive to the cottage leads you to ample parking for cars and trailers.

The location is one of the best on the lake. There is privacy for family gatherings and spectacular views of the lake from the cottage. We hope you enjoy your stay at “Southern Sails” as much as we love this cottage.

About Jeannette Wilkins

We are parents and grandparents, and we are fortunate enough to be the third generation to care for this cottage. We offer it to others for a few weeks each year to enjoy this special lake and this special cottage,

Jeannette Wilkins purchased this cottage in 1954

Why Jeannette Wilkins chose Sylvan Beach

The location is ideal because of the gentle slope of the land, giving easy access to the lake without a breakwall. The lake frontage is 50 feet. The neighborhood is the most beautiful and well maintained on the entire lake.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is close to wineries, the charming town of Hammondsport and the Glenn Curtiss Museum. Antiquing, Watkins Glenn, and Corning Glass museum are favorite activities. Local berry picking is a very fun activity with the kids, not to mention, delicious!

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with a group of college friends in October. The house was great, the views spectacular and we could not have asked for more. Huge kitchen was a magnet for hanging out, the comfort and views from the main living area was very relaxing and the porch was great for afternoon conversation and morning yoga! We enjoyed the grill, the kayak, and the fire pit. The house was clean, very tastefully decorated and very comfortable for our group of 8. We've already booked for next year!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you are planning to return. Fall is really spectacular on Keuka Lake, as you have discovered. We have so many really good wineries nearby also that cater to the Fall visitors, not to mention the outstanding restaurants. We look forward to your return next Fall!

Perfect Autumn Retreat

  • 5 of 5
When our friend Barb from Dallas told us she wanted to run the Wineglass Marathon, I suggested renting a house in the Finger Lakes region. We decided on Keuka Lake since it's the closest of the lakes to the starting line, and then I went to work on VRBO to select the "perfect" house for our group of six adults. Man, did I nail it! Southern Sails was wonderful: Clean, roomy, beautifully furnished, delightful decorative touches. It's conveniently located, and offers a wonderful view of the lake from the gorgeous sitting room. We sat on the dock in the mornings drinking our coffee, and in the late afternoons drinking other beverages. On one rainy evening we sat on the covered deck watching the rain gently fall on the lake. The location was a perfect jumping-off point not only for the marathon, but for day trips to the Keuka Outlet bike trail, Watkins Glen, the Corning Glass Museum, Curtiss Museum, antiquing, wine tasting, and more. Located just a few miles above Hammondsport, we had our choice of several nice restaurants (I recommend the Village Tavern). Even closer is the landmark Switzerland Inn, a perfect place for casual dining overlooking the lake. Our group has already decided we'll be going back.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5
My husband I rented this wonderful property for a week in September. The weather changed each day which added to the joy of being on the water. The house was terrific we had two friends stay with us as we were celebrating my 50th high school reunion. Each of the other guest had their own bathrooms which was great. The kitchen was perfect for cooking and enjoying the evenings. We can't wait to return and enjoy and relax in this wonderful spot

Owner's Response: Our favorite months at the lake are June and September, so your reunion week-end was timed perfectly. it is so quiet and the Herons are not quite as shy as they are in July and August. We are delighted that you had a fun and relaxing week at our cottage. Most people say it is not a "cottage" but rather a lakehouse, but the term "cottage" does not refer to to the size of the home. To me, it refers to the charm of a place that embraces it's past and it's present with new conveniences and old memories...............

The Perfect Multi-Family Home

  • 5 of 5
For the past 5 years, my wife and our young kids, my sister's family and her young kids, and my parents rent a lake house annually at different lakes somewhere between my sister in NJ and us in East Aurora, NY. This is the 1 time a year that we spend a lot of quality time together and we chose Keuka Lake this year at Southern Sails. It was unanimously voted by the entire family as the best house and trip yet since we started. We comfortably fit all the adults and children throughout the house. Every bedroom has its own bathroom and the entire place is extremely clean and in beautiful shape, so you can tell the owners take extremely good care of it. It has a nice dock with lounge chairs, kayaks, both a gas and charcoal grill ready to go, firepit, and a bunch of outside seating. There is a very shallow, gradual depth into the water perfect for the kids to play in. The porch is beautiful and spacious connected to both the kitchen and a sunroom. Stainless steel newer appliances and even a separate wine fridge where we stocked all the wines for the trip. The closest town to Sothern Sails happens to be the best town on the lake in my opinion and a major factor in my selection process trying to narrow down where we wanted to stay. This place is equipped with anything that you need and will not dissapoint anyone who rents it. I am thankful we discovered it and will be coming back for sure.

Owner's Response: We just love hearing stories like yours! Your family sounds a lot like ours, and we love our spot for the same reasons. We do appreciate the gradual incline into the water especially when we see some places perched on cliffs with a zillion steps down to the lake. Also, how cute is Hammondsport? New shops, antiques,cafes, the square and summer concerts....just summer at its best, Glad you made lots of new memories!

Vacation at Keuka Lake

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this location. The house is roomy and comfortable. Views of the lake are excellent from inside as well as outside on the extensive decks. My favorite is the sun room facing the lake with windows on three sides. Great space to sit and take it all in or just relax. It was lovely to be outside. There are two levels of outside areas as well as the dock and the fire pit. We used the fire pit several times and it was lovely to sit at lake edge and see the other fire pits going as well. Mornings on the water in the kayak were lovely.

Bathrooms are plentiful and roomy. Bedrooms are of good size and very comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked with all the necessities. The house was immaculate when we arrived.

We ventured out to several of the wineries around Keuka Lake and went into Corning to the Museum of Glass, which was so much more than we expected. Crab night (Wed. night) at the Switz is a must!

Best Rental in the Finger Lakes

  • 5 of 5
Wow! What an amazing house! Based on the photos, we had high expectations, but the actual house blew our minds. The owners have stocked everything you could possibly need. There were baby gates at every staircase, tons of water toys and indoor toys, and every possible kitchen gadget you could desire. The house is beautifully appointed with gorgeous wood trim, wide plank floors, wine-barrel counters, tons of antiques and nautical photos, and lots of cozy nooks for reading and naps. My husband, an engineer, was less interested in the antiques but was in awe of the radiant floor heating and giant hot water heater, which are visible from the laundry area. Best, though, is the lake access. The back of the house opens to a flat yard with plenty of space for frisbee or croquet. The lawn slowly slopes down to the dock and private beach. There's not a room in the house that doesn't have a view of the lake and from which you can't hear the water and the birds.

I should also mention that the house is QUIET! We went with 2 other families, each of whom have small children. In sum, there were 4 children under the age of 5. We were worried about night noise, since we all tend to be in bed by 9 pm. Although we saw occasional neighbors, we never heard them. They were all very quiet and respectful. This house is set down the hill from the road, so there wasn't any road noise either. We all slept so well!

Prior to our trip, we emailed the owner nearly every day for a week with questions. We wanted to know whether to pack our waffle iron, our infant life jacket, etc. Jeannette replied immediately to every request with reassurance that they had everything at the house already. She was so helpful throughout our trip. She recommended wineries, all-you-can eat crab dinners, and a very fun concert in the Hammondsport Square.

We cannot recommend this house enough! We feel so lucky to have enjoyed a week in such a wonderful place!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased that you enjoyed your time on Keuka Lake in our sweet cottage. The time that you spend with friends and family in a beautiful place like Keuka Lake stays with you and draws you back, time after time. I loved what you said about sleeping. I don't know why we all sleep so well at the lake. Maybe because we are so happy and relaxed?? Please come back!
