Your view stretches from the quaint city of Canandaigua and its romantic waterfront, along the entire lake, south to the verdant hills above Naples. 2 free kayaks seat 3 and beckon you to explore this intimate lake and its 5 nearby parks.

You don't have to cross a road or take stairs to get to the water because there's nothing between you and Canandaigua Lake but the cool grass beneath your bare feet. A secure fence creates a safe area for children to play games. You'll love roasting s'mores together at the lakeside fire pit.
Dream about the fresh air, warm sunshine, and freedom you'll feel on Canandaigua Lake. Descend either ladder into 2 to 4 feet water depth where you and the kids can swim safely, and wade gradually deeper into the refreshing lake. Moor your boat at our free buoy or use the 2 kayaks to discover nearby Lagoon Park, Squaw Island, Kershaw Park, City Pier, and Atwater Meadows.

Serendipity struck when we paired up on a chairlift at a nearby ski resort. How else could a local man meet a woman from Holland? Although we're from different countries, we share a love of Canandaigua Lake. Canandaigua's northeast shore has the highest values because it has the most sun, best sunsets, and easiest access to city amenities. When we saw this summer cottage on the market, we knew it would make the perfect place to relax. It's right on the water, has a golf course in back, and it's within walking distance to Wegmans and downtown Canandaigua. Staying at this cottage lets our 3 children experience what we had as kids: long Summer days filled with fresh air and a sense of freedom on the water. They swim, kayak, and windsurf in the perfect conditions of the cove out front. Our oldest son helps shoot the city's July 4th fireworks from a barge anchored straight off the cottage – his dream Summer job! You'll treasure the family memories that you make here. Imagine waking up, looking out from bed, and spying mink or herons fishing on the dock. Envision sipping coffee on the sunporch as a hot air balloon floats across the lake, skims its calm surface, then rises straight above you. Picture dining outdoors on the lakeside deck at sunset as an American bald eagle snatches a meal from the water.
Families keep coming back because of the scenic beauty, rich history, and relaxed mood which define Canandaigua, an Iroquois word for the “Chosen Place”. In 1922, a group of Canandaiguans sought to bring the sport of golf to their city, preferably as near as possible to their homes and and downtown businesses. Their chosen place: an old 70-acre sheep farm on the northeast shore of Canandaigua Lake. Just over the city line, it had a large pasture, interspersed with mature trees, great views of the lake, full-day sun, and gorgeous sunsets. To finance construction of the Canandaigua Country Club and golf course, they sold 40 lakeside lots for just $600 each. Today, this family-friendly neighborhood has the highest demand on Canandaigua Lake – and when you're here, you'll understand why. As our 87-year-old neighbor said about living here, “It's like a vacation everyday.” From the moment the Sun rises through the majestic trees of the 9th Fairway beyond your kitchen window, until it slowly sets off the lakeside deck, you'll enjoy 15 hours of sunshine – the most anywhere on the lake. The ever-changing quality of light playing upon the big sky, long lake, and verdant hills mesmerizes you. You'll love vacationing at this secluded location – it's off the beaten path yet nearby everything, from amusements and concerts to restaurants and wine tastings. Walk, bike, and even kayak to Wegmans for groceries – it's that close! You'll also love the authentic, hand-made details inside the cottage that convey a rare and nostalgic sense of time and place. Old-growth pine floors, vintage French windows, and a rustic stone fireplace recall a simpler time when families seeking a convenient Summer retreat first made Canandaigua Lake their “Chosen Place”. In a hectic life, this cottage makes the ideal place to relax and reconnect with family, friends, and nature. In a word: Simplicity!
SUNSHINE – Because this cottage has Canandaigua Lake in front and a 70-acre golf course in back, it has the most sunshine on the lake – up to 4 hours more sunlight on the East side - plus sunsets!
TRANQUIL COVE – The lake depth starts here at 3 feet and gradually deepens much further offshore. This allows runabouts or pontoon boats to navigate out to the lake and effectively creates a no-wake zone within our big cove. It's perfect for you to swim, kayak, Stand Up Paddleboard, or windsurf near the cottage without feeling harassed by speedboats. You'll love the intimacy of this beautiful place.
FRONT-ROW VIEW OF CITY FIREWORKS – During July 4th and the August Riesling Festival, enjoy public fireworks launched over Canandaigua Lake. A private front row seat to fireworks? Yes!
THERE'S NO ROAD TO CROSS – The LOCATION map shows a paved, private cul-de-sac ½ mile along the Fairway providing easy access to the cottage, with no thru traffic. With a 20-mph speed limit, you can walk, jog, or bike here in safety. Best of all, you don't have to cross a road to get to the lake! WALKABILITY – Walk or bike throughout this family-friendly neighborhood. Canandaigua has miles of level sidewalks and safe bike paths. Everything you need is just around the corner from this cottage.
LIVE LIKE A LOCAL – You'll get to know Canandaigua in the shortest amount of time because you're off the beaten trail yet nearby everything. Our resort area in the heart of the Finger Lakes has so much to offer – especially in Summer. At this convenient location, you'll drive less and relax more.
