Rustic charm and sun-filled spaces abound in this commanding, yet humble, comfortable, 6 BR, 4.5 BA grand dame of a family lakehouse that feels like it's jumped right out of a LLBean or Orvis catalog! An idyllic setting for family and friends to create a memorable getaway on beautiful Conesus Lake.
Ideally and centrally located on West Lake Road, where it meets Reservoir Road, 10 minutes from the Bear Fountain on Main Street in Geneseo, yet miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, M&M's, your home-away-from-home is situated comfortably on a large, picturesque lot with a backyard big enough for a competitive game of volleyball and with 100 feet of pristine lake front right out your front sliding glass doors!
If you're familiar with Conesus Lake, chances are you already know this home...it's been perched for many years on Wadsworth Cove, midway between Eagle Point and Long Point so it boasts unrivaled panoramic views of the lake. Believe me, the morning sunrises are spectacular while sitting on an Adirondack chair on the upper deck with a steaming mug of coffee before everyone else wakes up, just watching the family of ducks wading by and smiling at the quiet fishermen who seem to be quite lucky in front of the house ... and the way the sun dances on the water here - so lovely and so awesome!
OK.. So here's the virtual tour with words - Pull your car into the private driveway onto the gravel parking area which can park 5 cars. M&M's, the red wood, classic Adirondeck-style home in front of you is nearly 4,000 square feet and is heated and air-conditioned so you're never too hot or too cold any time of the year!
Upon entering at the front door, peppered with it's mature landscaping on either side of the steps, the master bedroom is on the left, with it's king sized bed and picture window and it's private bathroom with double sinks, jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Across the entrance hall, there is a small bedroom with a queen size bed. A powder room/half bath will be up to the left in the entrance hall.
Take a breath and take in the great room in front of you with it's soaring knotty pine vaulted ceiling and the oversized wall of windows and sliding glass doors offering breathtaking views of the lake. This great room feels very homey and you'll spend a lot of time here - shucking corn from the Livonia Farmers Market with your Great Aunt Mary or playing Apples to Apples with your cousins at the dining table! It is spacious for sure. But it is not fancy. It feels cozy and comfortable. There is a full kitchen to the right with an adjacent mudroom that has a separate side entrance convenient for bringing in groceries and a cozy family room with a flat screen TV to the left. A carpeted staircase leads you upstairs to two roomy and comfortable queen bedrooms, each with their own full bath.
In the kitchen area, there is a staircase leading you down to the lower level - perfect for teens or in-laws who would love to spread out in their own space! The vast open space contains a second family room area with 2 queen sleeper sofas and a futon, another full kitchen, another dining table, a small changing room, a full bathroom and a laundry room and plenty of closet space. There are also 2 small bedrooms in this lower level - one with a twin bed and one with a set of bunk beds.
This lower level also opens up with sliding glass doors to a full deck with outdoor seating, a gas and charcoal grill, and steps down to the lake front with its fire pit and l-o-n-g seasonal dock. The water is shallow here and there is a very gradual depth increase perfect for wading with small children or a family game of water dodgeball.
The evenings are epic here. Lots of laughs with family and friends on the deck under incredibly starlit skies while the children are savoring s'mores at the fire pit. There's nothing like summer nights at Conesus Lake! But as life gets more complicated and busy, people are looking for a year round escape. So consider an off season getaway too! Wireless internet and cable tv are available here and there are winery tours, the Hunt, Point-to-Point Races, County Fairs and ice fishing to keep you busy if you're looking for an adventure...or just curl up with a good book and relax on the deck with the lake breeze and sound of the waves lapping up on the shoreline...
This is a special property for sure! Just oozing with Conesus Lake charm, it has been a very popular family rental. M&M's is a happy lake house and we'd love to share it with you any time of year. So BOOK NOW before the few select weeks that are still available have been swept up. We will consider negotiating longer term leases in the off season for a single tenant or a couple if available.
