BEAUTIFUL, WATERFRONT POST & BEAM HOME WITH TENNIS COURT

Honeoye House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10; 175 Feet Of Waterfront On Quiet Cove

At the end of a private road, our house overlooks our neighbors to insure privacy and gorgeous views. Located on one acre in a quiet cove near the south end of the lake, our guests enjoy less boat traffic, more scenic mountain views, and friendly neighbors.

Upon entering, you see right through to the lake through a wall of windows. The open floor plan includes a living room with a 25 foot high ceiling, fireplace, dining table for 10, and a modern kitchen with all the amenities to encourage everyone to participate in your culinary creativity. There is also a study with WiFi and Guest Powder room.

The second floor Master Bedroom is designed like a sleeping porch... the king bed has a 180 degree view of the lake. A private bathroom and porch are attached.

The second floor also has another full bath and 2 more bedrooms: one with a queen bed; and the other with 2 twin beds and a ladder up to a loft where kids can play or sleep on 2 mattresses.

Going down to the finished, walk out basement, there is a full media and game room that includes bumper pool and foosball. There is plenty of light from windows, and the sliding glass doors lead to a terrace with a ping pong table and grill.

This is also where our guest room is located with a queen bed looking out on the lake and a full bathroom nearby.

Ten feet from the house is the 2 room Cabin, which was actually the original structure on the property. It has been refurbished with a queen bed and a living area. The bathroom is 25 feet away in the main house.

The stairs lead down to the 16' x 36' dock. Racks hold a kayak, sunfish sailboat, canoe and life jackets for your use (although to insure proper fit, bring your own). There is a place to moor a rental power boat (marina is 3 miles away). There is a lilypad (floating 6' diameter disc) that everyone will enjoy playing on as it sinks and spins in the water.

Down the road is our private tennis court and a beautiful glen to explore and hike.

My wife and I built the house (literally..I was part of the construction crew), so our kids would grow up near their grandparents and cousins in a healthy, fun-all-day-long environment. My son moved out to the Cabin when he was ten. My daughter moved out at 12 to a tent platform (now a tiny cabin) a little ways up in the woods. My youngest son built a tree house (sadly gone) that he slept in. Late night capture the flag or flashlight tag made being a dad a great occupation. If you come to our property, you will love it. Simple but beautiful.

Erik von Bucher purchased this house in 1992

My wife is from this area, and grew up on the lake. She grew up near cousins and close friends, and was busy all day long playing games, hiking, and doing water-sports. When this property came up for sale, we missed it the first time. Luckily, it came up again, and we grabbed it. There are 19 houses that make up our point community, and we count most of the people as our close friends. We are very close (10 mins) to Bristol ski mountain, 3 restaurants, and a marina. We are 15 mins to Naples and groceries, liquor store, pizza, gifts and a stunning golf course. 15 minutes heading north is Bristol Harbor resort and golf course. Add another ten minutes and you can be in the City of Canandaigua with a Wegmans Supermarket, Roseland Waterpark, and lots of very good restaurants.

The difference in this location on the lake is that the south end is significantly less busy with boat traffic. This is important for less noise, water safety, and enjoyment of the natural beauty of the lake.

Our post and beam house fit s the character of being close to nature. You will be able to fully integrate yourself with the environment as you move about the openness of the living areas and the porches and and the levels.

Every season is fantastic. The summer is the most fun, but winter is really cool when the lake freezes over and it is time to don your skis or skates. The fall is absolutely radiant with red and orange tree colors. And spring, well, after winter, it is great to get out in a boat and see things before the leaves set in.

It's all about the lake really. Invigorating, beautiful sunrise swims; day long activities from boating to hiking, eating at sunset, bonfires under bright stars, and finally falling asleep to lapping waters.

There is a large waterpark with surf pool and slides just 15 miles away; 200 wineries to visit including one just 6 miles away; Bristol Valley Theatre features Broadway talent (8 mi) ; 2 golf courses that have breathtaking holes overlooking the Bristol Hills (8 mi); City of Rochester with the National Museum of Play, Eastman House, and International Jazz Festival; and Niagara Falls Casino and boat adventures (2 1/2 hrs).

Notes:
This is our vacation home surrounded by many friends so please come prepared to treat it as such. Sound travels far on the lake, so voices from our dock and porches can be heard by neighbors. We ask, therefore, that you bring your group inside by 10 or 11pm unless soft voices can be insured. You are asked to safeguard the natural beauty of these surroundings as if you owned this home. Thank you
