About Tracy Mitrano

All my life, growing up in Rochester, I wanted to have a house on one of the Finger Lakes. I am so fortunate now to have one, and we are teaching our children water safety, responsibility, care and upkeep of the house.

Taxes and other expenses require us to rent it out. I am glad to share this beautiful, fun home with other people and families who enjoy the beauty of the Finger Lakes.

Tracy Mitrano purchased this house in 2003

Why Tracy Mitrano chose Keuka Lake

The natural beauty is astounding and its proximity to wineries accentuates the fun! Mostly I just enjoy relaxing with a glass of wine, by myself, with my family or entertaining friends for dinner on the porch looking out at the lake.

This property is unique on the lake with permanent dock, outdoor patio, fireplace and shower and two decks. Indoor gas stone/fireplace, new tile floor, cool in the summer, warm in the winter with radiant heat. Gorgeous spot on the lake!

What makes this house unique

Outdoor dinner seating on beautiful patio next to an outdoor large wood-burning fireplace! Gorgeous tile floor in main living and kitchen area, cool and clean in the summer, radiant heat in the winter together with the indoor gas stove stove/fireplace make a cozy spot to watch the lake. It is enchanting in all seasons!

Air conditioning!

Indoor gas fireplace, full kitchen, quality utensils and dish ware. It is a great house for people of all ages because of the new dock, boats, two full decks (one for the adults and one for the kids), a complete house with bedrooms and good furniture, new tile in living area, new sliding doors and windows, new mattresses and comforters.

New washer and dryer in the basement.

All newly remodeled T.V. room in basement.

Lots of room for three generations!

All in all, a relaxing and fun place.

Keuka lake stay

  • 5 of 5

Tracy's pictures don't do her home justice. Her home is beautiful and we loved the location. Tracy was very quick and helpful when answering questions. She was very accomidating and I would definitely recommend renting from her if you are looking to spend some time on Keuka lake. Her permanent dock is great and very roomy! We had a great time, plenty of room and a very pleasurable stay.

Great For A Group of Friends

  • 5 of 5

Tracy was great and very accomodating. We slept 10 people and very comfortably. The weather did not cooperate with us as the pre storms to Sandy had already rolled into town, but the house more than provided for a great time. Easy access to Penn Yan, any of the wineries as well as the WindMill. The Views of the lake were phenomenal. We will definitely be renting again.
