BRAND NEW, CONTEMPORARY LAKEFRONT HOME

Sylvan Beach House Rental Photos and Description

8 Person, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Modern Lakefront Home

Keuka Charm II. . .

Located in the Heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country, also known as the Cradle of Aviation and “Crooked Lake” by the locals.

However you want to describe the region, guests will soon realize why the Lady of the Lakes has become the top destination in the Finger Lakes Region.

When you pare together the breathtaking scenery and delightful locale offered by the lake itself with our beautiful home you are in for an unforgettable getaway!

Situated on the WESTSIDE of KEUKA LAKE between Branchport & Hammondsport, this newly built custom lakeside home is right on the water’s edge and boasts breathtaking views of the lake & bluff from every room any season, enhanced by a DECK on the west side of the house, a lakeside Patio, and a HUGE , 1200 sqft DOCK, (great for sunning, fishing OR mooring your boat!). Virtually everything in this comfortable home is new. Enjoy a beautiful 100+ feet of shale gradual entry beach all situated in a great protected cove, it is perfect for kids and adults alike.

We have taken great care to make this newly built charmer into a modern delight and we think you will agree that this is one of the finest rentals on all of Keuka.

The bedroom on the lake level of the house includes a Queen size bed, with a bathroom next door, equipped with a washer and dryer and a ‘waterfall’ shower. The large, multi-bed 2nd floor bedroom includes custom-made QUEEN SIZE bunk beds, plus an additional QUEEN SIZE bed. Sleeping accommodations for 8 people, total! The second floor is rounded out with another bathroom & waterfall shower, as well as a built-in wooden desk & chair, all overlooking the lake & bluff!

The “Cooks” kitchen is complete with beautiful Cherry cabinetry, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, and will allow you to cook up the “catch” of the day or just allow for some great appetizers to be prepared. Enjoy your meal on the DECK, the PATIO, or the HUGE DOCK, which will definitely allow you to unwind and forget about your worries. If you don’t feel like being in the kitchen take a short two minute walk to Lakeside Restaurant and allow them to do the cooking for you.

This home includes wood & tile flooring and hand-crafted wood trim on the windows and doorways, and is rounded out nicely with CENTRAL AIR conditioning. The family room allows you to relax while looking out over the beautiful scenes of Keuka.

Perhaps you would enjoy a game of Bocce ball or Horseshoes along the shore, and at night you can relax beside the fire pit and tell some stories or roast marshmallows. Go fishing from the huge dock or take the kayak out for a peaceful ride, there is no bad way to enjoy Keuka!

Enjoy the moonlight dancing across the water and perks of lakeside OR venture out to renowned Finger Lakes winery trails, quaint villages, restaurants, (by car or boat), marinas, tourist attractions & conveniences.

Wine making and aviation has shaped the region and endless vistas unfold from the vine clad hills. Over a dozen award winning wineries (and recently opened micro- breweries) offer samplings of their handcrafted wines and champagnes, & now beers. Venture out on your own, following the Keuka Lake Wine Trail, or book a wine tour and leave the driving to a pro so you can enjoy the sampling and the views.

From casual to gourmet, hotdogs to upscale cuisine, dining by land or water, you will not have to travel far to find a memorable meal. As a matter of fact, you are within a two minute walk to the Lakeside Restaurant and a fully stocked marina.

Quaint shops in the Village of Hammondsport offer souvenirs, gifts, and fine arts. Take the road less traveled and go shopping for that perfect antique.

There is always something happening at Keuka Lake. Scheduled events range from arts and crafts shows, wine and food extravaganzas to live music and aviation shows.

Once you stay here we think you will agree, this house is a ‘Charmer” . . .

A semi-retired couple, with two grown children who enjoy the lake as much as we do -- and Rambo, the family dog! We'd love to have you come see us, and take advantage of this amazing spot on the lake.

Keuka Lake has always been a special place for us. Having spent years coming to visit the lake, we decided we needed to make a permanent place for us. This spot in particular has an amazing feel with the cove and beach entry that just has a way of relaxing all who spend time there.

It's a unique spot in that you can enjoy the beautiful lakeside view of the bluff, while enjoying the comfortable and totally modern amenities of the house, including the large, 1200 sqft dock, the Patio, and the additional walk-out Deck just off the front door. Visitors can get away from it all, but be close enough to enjoy the local antique shops, wineries and restaurants, if desired.

Pefect house, perfect setting....perfect week!

  • 5 of 5
We loved the contemporary design of this Keuka rental. We have rented from these owners for 3 years and they are a joy. Everything is well maintained and owners are very responsive. You will not be disappointed!
The house is fully appointed right down to s’mores sticks to use at the fire pit, ample kitchen utenstils, Keurig machine and other extras. Our kids (8,8, and 10) loved to use the provided kayak and we spent most days on the HUGE deck and swimming in the lake, grilling and watching the sunset. Beach walk-in access for little kids but, deep enough to dive off end of the dock. Good fishing off the dock too.
The house is very clean, not cluttered, comfortable with open, sun-filled rooms with lots of windows. Fully updated with a contemporary design, this is the nicest house we have rented on the lake and we have been coming to Keuka Lake every summer for 9 years.
Location is fantastic, short drive to downtown Hammondsport and a 2 minute walk to Lakeside Restaurant. Close to many wineries and Artisan farmers market.
We highly recommend this rental, feels like a home away from home.

What a wonderful cozy cottage tucked in on Keuka Lake. The views of the lake from both inside and outside are gorgeous! Very relaxing and a true get away from everyday life. The cottage is exceptionally maintained and offers all the comforts of home. The deck was large enough to accommodate fourteen family members comfortably. The cottage is located in the heart of wine country, many great restaurants and cute shops are just a short drive. We had a great week and will definitely rent again next summer. The owners are knowledgeable, friendly and definitely take pride in their property.

Highly Recommend this Cottage. Fabulous Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We had an absolutely delightful trip to lake Keuka this year and loved our first stay at the Red Cottage. We have family in the Rochester area and like to combine our family visit with a relaxing stay at this beautiful lake. Over the past 10 years, we have rented many cottages on lake Keuka and believe this was the best cottage we have ever rented. It's a great find we highly recommend to anyone who loves the lake life. It is NEW, clean and has all the amenities you might want including air conditioning, full kitchen, a BBQ, a nice beach, a fire pit, a massively large dock and water toys including floaties & kayaks. Our kids (10 & 8)loved it and have asked if we can go back again next year. They swam and fished every day and enjoyed everything this place offered.
We noticed that a previous visitor mentioned disturbing noises, but we experienced none of it. The weather was very nice so we slept with the windows open most nights and it was generally very quite with some typical lake noises. Overall it was very relaxing and a place we will certainly return to. We highly recommend the red cottage.

We had a wonderful week. The house was cozy. The owners were very nice, and made us feel at home. We are going back in the fall!
I would recommend this property.

Quiet Enjoyment? Not Here!

  • 1 of 5
What you won't know until you get there is that if you are renting this property
this Summer is that the owner is building a second house right next door. And by
right next door I mean no more than 30 feet away from where you are trying to
sleep or perhaps relax on that nice deck that caught your eye on this listing.
So if you have plans to sleep I past 7:30 AM, or hope to enjoy a peaceful coffee outside on the deck (inside for that matter), it's not happening. We were awaken by a nail gun the first day at 7:30. And the work continues until 4:30 or 5 each day, so there is no peace for most of the day.
When I brought this up to the owner he explained to me that everyone is
different and everyone has different tolerances. If none of the 6 people staying there could sleep through a nail gun going off 30 feet from our door at 7:30 in the morning, good enough statistical sample for me to say it was not an issue of particular tolerances. In fact, when I expressed my unhappiness the owner told me that the construction has been much more disruptive during other weeks. As if to say, consider myself lucky.
It was VERY improper for this owner to rent to me with full knowledge that he would have his own construction crew banging away all week without telling us upfront. That was done with full knowledge and intent on his part. He should not be charging full price with that going on, even if they let people know about it in advance.
Further, when one of your amenities listed is the washer and dryer, they should
disclose the notable limitations of your holding tank (1,000 gallons). That comes with speech about taking short showers and holding back on flushing toilets when you arrive. None of this is disclosed in the listing. The master bedroom is really small with no closets or room for luggage. The house has a very small foot print, so is built so that you can hear every foot step on the main (kitchen) floor right over the master bedroom. A lot of the footprint is taken up by staircase to accommodate the 3 floors. One very small closet in the loft.
People love the lake because it is peaceful and supposed to be relaxing.
Instead, myself and all my guest left exhausted. Spending the much for a rental house for a week, you expect a much better experience. They certainly should not be renting at full price with that going on. They should use the Fall rate during the remainder of the construction year. Beware! Even at a lower rate it is a noisy place.

Owner's Response: For those who will renting with us in the future, we are happy to report the following:
1. Construction on the home next door will be a moot point by the end of September. The new home next door will be complete.
2. We are in the process of updating our holding tank to what is known as an aerobic system. Essentially, our lake home will have it’s own “green” sewage treatment plant. There will be no restrictions or limitations on water usage.
We would also like to emphasize that this unique lake front property was built new by the current owners. Everything is brand spanking new including the furnishings. Yes….new appliances, new beds, new mattresses, new hardwood floors, new washer and dryer, new 1,200 sq. ft. lakeside deck and 400 sq. ft. deck off of the main floor. And, depending upon the season, we encourage you to use the central air or the high efficiency furnace.
Inside, our lake home is immaculate. All the comforts of home (incl. cable TV and wireless internet). However, it seems that most of our clients vacation on Keuka Lake because of the beautiful, clean lake and surrounding countryside. The view from our property is truly spectacular.
While we were very disappointed that the above renter was unhappy, we take pride in the fact this is the first negative comment that we have had with now well over 50 renters.
In ending, we hope you choose to enjoy our lake front home as much as the others who have before you. Keuka Lake is a marvelous place to spend time….anytime of the year. And, we are sure that you will be very pleased with your total experience with us….just like 98% of our clients have.
