Completely remodeled turn of the century lake home. With all the original architecture, this home has TONS of appeal to vacationing guests! A rare find on Keuka Lake, and only a mile from Penn Yan, this 3 bedroom 2 bath Victorian home was lovingly upgraded in 2006 and has panoramic views of the lake from every room in the house.
The remodeled well-appointed kitchen features stainless steel appliances, silestone countertops, wine glass holder & wine rack, maple cabinets, ceramic tile floors & a ceiling fan. It is well-stocked with all the spices, utensils, pots & pans a gourmet chef could need! The dining room has panoramic lake views, country style dining table w/bench & chair seating for 10 & a ceiling fan. The spacious living room with breathtaking lake views features a huge fieldstone gas fireplace, which heats the entire first floor! A large, flat screen cable TV is mounted to the wall & can be enjoyed from every angle in the room. Two ceiling fans in the living room circulate the air to keep the home cool. Summer breezes off the lake can be enjoyed through beautiful French doors that open to the large covered porch, which also features 2 large ceiling fans. The house has air-conditioning.
The master bedroom has a queen bed, window seat for quiet reading space, a ceiling fan, TV with DVD/VCR player and panoramic views of the lake. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds, a queen futon, a ceiling fan, TV with DVD/VCR player and also has panoramic views of the lake. Both are upstairs. The 3rd bedroom is our bunk room. It is off the living room and down a few stairs. There is a set of bunk beds and a ceiling fan along with beautiful views of the lake.
The first floor living room has a queen and a full sleeper sofa for additional sleeping arrangements. First floor bath has a shower/tub combo. Second floor bath has a jetted jacuzzi tub with a washer/dryer in the closet.
A canoe & paddleboat, along with several life jackets, are available for your use. You only need to take a few steps into the house, out onto the large covered porch, onto the dock or into the water. Perfect for all ages!
The water in Keuka lake is crystal clear, the fish are very healthy, and the scenery is amazing. My buddy and I along with our families stayed at this lake house for 7 days. The two of us fished from sunrise to sunset everyday. We caught tons of large and small mouth bass as well as northern pike using stick baits, soft plastics, top water, and spinner baits. The same lures also caught jack perch, rock bass and sunfish.
All of these fish can be caught from the doc. We had a 19' bass boat that we brought to the camp. There is a public launch about a mile from the camp. It's very convenient. The doc accommodated the boat just fine. There's a marina next to the boat launch (ideal location).
We caught large mouths up to 5lbs and 2.5 lbs small mouths. If you like to eat fish, this is the lake to do it. I would recommend targeting perch one day and making a meal out of them. I cooked a variety of fish and the perch were everyone's favorite.
An overall great experience!
Our family just rented this lovely home for our second time and we never intend to go anywhere else -- it has everything we could hope for and more! This year we had the pleasure of noticing the many upgrades and improvements the current owners made since they acquired the property between our visits, and their loving attention to detail is apparent with everything from the landscaping to the decor. As you can tell from the photos, a house cannot get any closer to the water's edge than this one does, leaving you literally surrounded by the lake throughout your stay. The private pebble beach that IS the front yard is perfect for swimmers, especially kids: there's a nice, gradual entry to the clear, warm water and one can stand even beyond the end of the dock. The home is recently updated, freshly painted, clean, tastefully decorated, and generously equipped. The house is located just a couple of minutes away from Penn Yan, providing convenient access to stores and restaurants throughout your stay. Special thanks go to the current owners, the Vieselmeyers, who welcomed our whole family graciously and made us feel like family. Anyone would be hard pressed to find a more perfect getaway in the Finger Lakes than Eastview Cottage!
Beautiful Lakefront Home. Very clean and accommodating. Easily sleeps a big group.
Kirk was a great host!
We were so pleased when we checked into Eastview Cottage and found it met our expectations. It has obviously been recently updated, was very clean, and well appointed with many small things that you don't typically find in a vacation rental. Things like band-aids, sunscreen, etc. It was nice that it was on the west side of the lake since it was pretty warm the time we were there. We got the morning sun on the porch and shaded afternoons and evenings which were perfect. It's close to town and an easy walk to the ice cream parlor which we frequented more than once! The owners have done a lot to make it homey, plant flowers, etc. Our whole booking experience and communication with them was great. The two bedrooms upstairs are nice and roomy and get great breezes with the windows open. It was exactly what we were looking for in a rental. I can easily recommend it to others!
The freshly decorated, renamed Eastview Cottage lacked nothing thanks to the great care and attention to detail by its owners. Making reservations was easy, with great email communications explaining all we needed to know and answering any questions. We even had the pleasure of meeting the owners who own the home next door and enjoying the beautiful summer plantings which appeared while we were out hiking and visiting the areas many wineries and breweries. Early morning coffee on the pier deck and late afternoon paddle boat on the clear lake offered time to relax and laugh with friends. And the huge porch and swing helped us wait out the rain without disrupting our fun. The kitchen was better stocked than any rental we've stayed in. Great dining room table, also perfect for game playing. No down side at all to our stay, and special thanks to those who made this home so inviting!
This cottage was the perfect location for a getaway and even though the weekend was cool we were toasty warm in this beautiful cottage. Nancy concerned about our warmth and even brought in extra heaters. the cottage is well equipped and it is easy to feel immediately at home. the porch is gorgeous, bedroom areas generous with space and the living room was more than adequate for socializing. a wonderful, get away spot with lots to do nearby although why anyone would want to leave the front porch is beyond me!!!
The exterior features include 111 ft. of natural beach and retaining wall in front of the home, a large dock to moor your boat, large covered porch for entertaining, gas grill for all your outdoor cooking, fire pit with Adirondack chairs for evening campfires, roasting s'mores or just relaxing.
