Imagine a vacation on the sunniest part of Canandaigua Lake. Kayak peacefully. Swim in refreshing water. Get close to nature. Catch a fish. Take a nap. Walk to lakefront parks and the best attractions in the Finger Lakes. Taste local wines. Dine outdoors at sunset. Roast s'mores. Watch city fireworks. Gaze upon a moonlit lake. Snuggle in king-size beds with lake views. Wake up renewed and revived. Relax all week at a cottage secluded by a private golf course. Share a lifetime of family memories.
You've discovered the perfect place to reconnect with family, friends, and nature because it has:
• A great waterfront with over 15 hours of sun, 2 free kayaks, and plenty of activity for all ages
• Large, comfortable beds for each guest (3 kings and a twin over full bunk)
• Well-stocked kitchen and updated cottage kept meticulously clean
• Walkable access to nearby Wegmans grocery, restaurants, shops, and the Wine & Culinary Center
Picture perfect sunsets over Canandaigua Lake as you dine al fresco. The lakeside deck has 2 tables, umbrellas, lots of seating, and a Weber grill with free gas. Step off the deck, walk across the level lawn, and out to the Adirondack chairs perched on the swim platform at the end of the dock.
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. Can you imagine capping off a carefree day on Canandaigua Lake with a private front-row view of fabulous city fireworks? Yes!
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 surrounds the entire lawn, giving children a safe and secure play area. They'll love roasting s'mores 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.
The versatile sunporch overlooks the lake. Large, cushy furniture makes it the perfect place to relax, read, watch TV, text friends, play cards, or take a nap. The farm table on the sunporch can seat 8.
6 pairs of vintage French windows invite lake views and sunshine downstairs. The dining table seats 6 comfortably. Gather together in the cozy family room and enjoy a 42” HDTV and DVD player.
The well-equipped kitchen has a new stove, Bosch dishwasher, and everything you need to prepare delicious local food. The first floor also has a ½ bath and Miele front-load clothes washer/dryer.
After a day full of family fun, retreat upstairs to 4 comfortable bedrooms, with soft linens and pillows:
• Lose yourself in the master bedroom's king-size Westin Heavenly Bed – see the lake right from bed!
• In Bedroom 2, guests wake up revived with a lake view from a king-size Sealy Posturpedic bed
• Bedroom 3 has a comfortable king-size Simmons Beautyrest bed overlooking the golf course
• Parents will appreciate that we have a twin over full bunk bed - great for children.
The new full bathroom has a soapstone vanity, subway-tiled tub/shower, tile floors, plank walls, and custom built-in storage. With free linens and towels, just bring your swimsuit and water shoes.
An easy-to use Nest thermostat controls quiet central air-conditioning. The cottage has free WiFi, excellent cell-phone coverage, 3 flat screen HDTVs, DVD players, Basic Cable, and Netflix.

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? We hit it off right away because even though we come from different countries, we share a love for the Finger Lakes. Staying at this cottage lets our three 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, Canandaigua Country Club founders purchased a large farm on the lake's northeast shore. They financed their new golf course by selling 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. From the moment the Sun rises through the majestic trees of the golf course 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 sky, lake, and 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! From the moment you enter this rare, original cottage, authentic details convey a 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.
