Canandaigua Lake Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

If you're planning a family vacation, reunion, wedding or just touring the Finger Lakes, Bristol Harbour Resort, nestled in the beautiful Bristol Hills, is the perfect place to be. The condos are on the cliff overlooking Canandaigua Lake and the resort boasts every amenity necessary to ensure a good time is had by all.

Canandaigua is the most popular of the Finger Lakes because of it's proximity to Rochester, crystal clear water, and nearby wineries, shopping and restaurants. It also has multi-million dollar mansions all around it and Lake Canandaigua recently took over from Lake Tahoe as the most expensive lake per square foot in the USA! Bristol Mountain Ski Center is also just minutes away making it a popular, year-round destination.

This condo was recently updated with new living room furniture, floors, doors, crown moldings and quartz countertops, and is the largest offered on this website and is rarely available for rental. Its 1500 sq. ft. seem even more spacious as it's all on one level and the extra windows in all exterior rooms make it lighter and brighter than others located in the interior of the building. There is plenty of parking for both renters and their guests, and the unit is meticulously maintained by the owner who oversees the cleaning and makes sure everything is pristine prior to a guest's arrival. The kitchen was remodeled and updated in 2012 and now gives the chef a panoramic view of the lake while cooking. The master has an oversized King bed, a walk-in closet and it's own remodeled Tuscan style bathroom with copper vessel sinks, granite counters and a walk-in tiled shower. The guest bathroom, also remodeled in 2008, serves the two additional bedrooms, one of which is furnished as a den but with a queen sleep sofabed if needed. The condo is well stocked with linens, dishes, etc. and has all the amenities of home.

About Jennifer McCall

We're very active and love to hike and swim, so Canandaigua Lake is the perfect place to do that. The water is so clean and usually gets into the low 70's in the Summer. There's a full-time lifeguard at Bristol Harbor during the school holidays, which makes the baby beach and lake a safe place for children to swim and play.

Jennifer McCall purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jennifer McCall chose Canandaigua Lake

Our condo is particularly attractive because it's an end unit and is on one level so seems very large, light and bright. We're very fussy about inspecting it before occupancy and have never had a dissatisfied guest.

What makes this condo unique

No words can describe what a full moon over the lake looks like from our balcony! It's magical and if you truly want to connect with your spiritual side, Canandaigua Lake is the place to do it. It looks more like Switzerland than New York State!

Amazing Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family just recently stayed at this AMAZING 3 bedroom condo on Canandaigua Lake. In the past, I have rented a different, smaller condo at Bristol Harbour, but NOTHING compared to this beautifully decorated, lovely vacation retreet! The owner is wonderful to work and communicate with and every detail is covered.

I hightly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay on the Lake!

Perfectly Perfect

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful condo with a large living area to congregate with family and guest . We were there to attend a family wedding and was able to see a number of condos and this was the best. Well kept, newly renovated and decorated beautifully . Also arrived at the Lake to find a welcome gift of wine , a very tasty English cheese and crackers. Truly is great place to stay when visiting "the chosen spot"

Perfect, relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came to the Finger Lakes and this condo with our daughter, her husband and our son -- all in their 20s. We're experienced travelers, and this condo could not have suited our needs more perfectly. As noted by others, it was clean, modern, convenient, updated, and came with a sweeping view of the lake. Everyone had a space to retreat to, and the condo building was wonderfully quiet. Our hosts were great with email correspondence beforehand, and when we had a minor issue on the day we checked in, they immediately resolved it. We had a great week in the Finger Lakes and the condo was a key ingredient. The heartiest of recommendations.

Views are amazing - had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just stayed there and found the place wonderful. There was a nice balcony where we could eat and watch the boats. The living room, dining area, kitchen all faced the lake. The master bedroom was very nice and had it's own bathroom. We couldn't ask for a better location and the owner was available via email or phone if there was an issue - which there wasn't. Our grown children stopped by for a few days and took advantage of the beach next to the marina, which was right below us. (but we didn't have to climb steps - there was an elevator to take us down and up from the beach and marina)

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

I recently rented this property for a week. The views were gorgeous, the owner beyond helpful and the quality of the condo and furnishings everything you could ask for. It is centrally located to the Canadaigua area and very convenient. I couldn't recommend this property more highly.

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

I was born and raised in the Finger Lakes area and worked in Canandaigua for 30 years, so I know the area intimately. We moved away last year, and returned to visit family and friends. My wife and I stayed at Bristol Harbour for three weeks, but wanted 3 bedrooms so my kids could visit when they wanted, and this worked out perfectly. The condo was very quiet, even for Labor Day weekend. We hardly saw anyone in the units around us, so they may not be in the rental program. We didn't get any cigarette smoke, grill odors, etc. from surrounding condos. We slept with the windows open every night and never used the AC. The unit is located on the end of the 4th floor (5 total) so there are extra windows, and it's private. The top level of the car park with a dedicated space is just a few steps from the door, and there is no sense of being in a "cave", as with some of the units on lower floors. The condo had plenty of laundry soap, spices, and all the little things that you would have at home, but not find in a hotel. The view is spectacular, and the main reason we chose this location. We didn't really use the beach, but my nephew tied up his boat along the public dock for a half day without a problem. A few things were showing their age (vacuum, ironing board, fry pan), but not a problem. We know of a number of lakeside cottages or houses for rent at 4 times the cost of this condo, but we would choose this again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review Karl; I truly appreciate it and also you letting me know about the vacuum, ironing board and frypan. Most of our guests are not concerned about such things but I realize those who stay multiple weeks might be so will pay special attention to those items when I'm next at the condo. In the meantime, we hope to see you again on a future visit.
