About Greg and Monica Macaluso
We love Keuka Lake! It's so clean and welcoming! We live a little over an hour away but we also have camping property a few minutes from the farmhouse. We've been coming to the area for eight years and we just feel the day melt away as we approach the country. We are both educators and enjoy the chance to step away from work for a while. Our four kids consider the farmhouse their second home!
Greg and Monica Macaluso purchased this House in 2017
Why Greg and Monica Macaluso chose Penn Yan
We have family in the area, and we have a small parcel of land just a mile away where we camp, hike, swim, and fish! We love the lake view from the kitchen, the room in the kitchen for multiple cooks, and the huge yard. One day we had three cooks going at once trying to explore three different deliveries of "Hello Fresh!" We were super excited to hear that several guests have hired a chef to cook in our kitchen for special events. Our kids are able to help with some of the property management, which makes the property seem even more like home. We have a Jet Ski and motor boat and have enjoyed watching the kids learn to ski and paddle board on Keuka. We know this area so well and are proud to be Keuka homeowners!
What makes this House unique
Most people love our home for the gourmet kitchen and the view of the lake from the kitchen table. It seems to work well for couples who like wine touring or checking out local breweries. We chose a farmhouse theme because it suits our upbringing and feels so cozy - well, and because it used to be part of a grape farm! We were super excited to upgrade the fireplace so that we could have an open hearth in the cooler months, and we provide firewood for guests. We enjoy the VRBO concept, so we have tried to incorporate aspects of homes that we have particularly enjoyed visiting over the years, such as special touches here and there and a warmth that can only come from love! We see wildlife each time we visit the farmhouse!

Wonderful weekend trip in a peaceful wine country hillside farmhouse!
We stayed with another family of 4 (4 adults and 4 kids total) in the farmhouse for the weekend of the Keuka Triathlon. It was very close to the college where the race took place. The setting is peaceful with beautiful views. We loved the fire pit! The house has lots of character and was clean with 4 equal sized bedroom and 2 full bathrooms which were also very clean. The kitchen was great and had everything you’d ever need!
We lucked out and had a hot and beautiful weekend of weather. The window air units made the house very comfortable. The kids enjoyed the collection of board games. I highly recommend and hope we’ll be back!
Will stay again
Felt like home
Fantastic place a weekend getaway with Friends
We were looking for a long weekend getaway in the Finger Lakes with two other couples (6 total) and this was the perfect place. Everything we needed was there. Plenty of equipment for cooking, kitchen was well stocked with extras like seasonings. Bottled water dispenser was very useful. House is in a great place on a very quiet road. Watched a lot of deer playing in the yard. Keuka Lake State Park is only 5 miles down the road which was great for a mid-day hike. Other than that, a lot of relaxing together in the large family room, chatting, reading, napping and playing games. Thanks!
Thanks, Todd! You left the Farmhouse in great shape! We're glad you discovered Keuka Park, as we also enjoy it in all seasons. Thanks for your advice on having two Primo water bottles on hand!
The house was perfect for our group of 7 girls. The kitchen was well stocked and the fireplace was awesome. The weather cooperated so we were able to enjoy the outside deck with the wonderful view. I hope we get the opportunity to stay again. Loved it!
clean, quiet, and spacious!
We had the perfect girls weekend getaway in wine country for a bachelorette celebration! This was my first experience with VRBO and Monica and Greg were extremely helpful and easy to work with. We enjoyed the large dining area and crowding around the fireplace in the living room. We will definitely consider booking again in the future, thanks again! :)
Relaxing, quiet retreat
This home is a lovely get-away. There were 5 ladies on this trip - a mini college reunion. The weather was not our friend, but it didn't stop us from exploring the Windmill shopping experience, Watkins Glen & some wineries on Seneca Lake on Saturday. Sunday we hit a couple Kueka wineries & Hammondsport. While a bit off the beaten trail, this home is convenient to wineries on both lakes.
The home itself is well stocked & had comfortable furnishings. We spent a lot of time in the dining area because of the light (lots of windows) & the view of the lake. Penn Yan is very close & Tops grocery store had all the provisions we needed.
Yes it's well-water & there is a sulfur smell, but we were ok with that & knowing ahead of time was good.
Will definitely look into booking this the next time I'm in the area!

We are less than ten minutes from Keuka State Park and Keuka College as well as hiking, biking, and swimming. We love the wineries and breweries and have experienced Keuka Lake at all seasons. Within an hour you can downhill ski and cross-country ski at Swain. Keuka offers boat rentals, touring of breweries and wineries, hiking, and nearby golfing.
