About Kirk Vieselmeyer
Kirk and Barbara Vieselmeyer purchased Eastview Cottage in the summer of 2015. We purchased Eastview Cottage because we own the blue cottage,Lake Lawn Point, next to it and we always loved the architecture of Eastview. We purchased Lake Lawn Point in 2011 and completely renovated it as well as our guest cottage , Sin Cottage. It is called Sin Cottage because back in the late 1800s the women didn't approve of the men's smoking and drinking habits so Sin Cottage was built for them. Sin Cottage is our guest home but it usually is occupied by our family. We have 4 married sons and are thrilled to have 8 grandchildren with another one on the way. We embrace family time at our lake home and we enjoy meeting new guests each year.

Why Kirk Vieselmeyer chose Penn Yan
We purchased Eastview Cottage because we own the blue cottage next to it and we have always loved the architecture . It was part of the Lake Lawn Estate once and we wanted to keep it's history in tact. We feel that location is the key to owning a lake home. We are five minutes from Penn Yan and when you have a family and many guests there is always something that we need in town. Or after a fun day at the lake we might just order some food from town. We also are close to many wineries and breweries as well. Having a hospital near by is a big advantage too. The water is pretty shallow and usually warm. We have very friendly lake neighbors that we enjoy socializing with.
What makes this House unique

Highly recommended rental!
Our family just spent the weekend at this rental property and enjoyed every minute of it. The house had everything we needed and wonderful views from all over the house. The kids in our group are already asking when we can go back!
Wonderful house right on the lake. Amazing views, everything we needed and more. Exceptional!
We had a wonderful time at this property. There was four of us (2 couples), and the House was just right. Very clean, well stocked, above average +. The views of the lake, sunrise and sunsets from the porch, and dock were outstanding. Paddle fans on the porch and each room. The AC was nice as we hit a hot spell in September. The owners are very nice, very helpful, went the extra mile for us. We brought our own kayaks, and we could launch right in front of the house. Keuka has very clear water, very nice. We kayaked 2 days at Keuka, and 1 day at Seneca, for a total of about 15 miles. It was nice that Watkins Glen was only 35 minutes away, which gave us variety. We ate at restaurants in Penn Yan (very close) and also in Watkins Glen. Many good choices.
This house and property is amazing.
We were able to catch fish, the two fisherman each caught a 17” smallmouth bass, as well as other fish.
Again, amazingly nice, clean, well kept well stocked house.
We would like to return at some point. Thank you for allowing us to stay here. We loved it.
Where memories are made...
I can't say enough about this slice of paradise. The owners are incredibly hospitable and strive to make your time here perfect! If you are looking for a memory of a lifetime stay here...
The property was outstanding and had everything we needed! It was very clean and the parking right behind the cottage was great NO STEPS!!!
Best Place to Stay!!
We recently stayed with family at Eastview Cottage and we can honestly say it was our best experience yet! We have rented many times on Keuka Lake but we enjoyed this property the most. It was nice not to have a killer set of stairs to go up and down and the landscaping on this property just added to our enjoyment. It is a great mix of old outside (the beautiful porch) and new inside with many updated ammenities. Kirk and Barb have done an amazing job at making this a comfortable place to stay. We would also like to thank Dan and Nancy at the Colonial Motel for their hospitality during our stay. We look forward to coming back again soon!
Great cottage for family and friends gatherings
Our family really enjoyed the cottage. We loved the location, the layout, the beautiful porch and the great access to Keuka lake. The cottage was clean and well maintained. It was also well stocked with amenities in the kitchen and bath. The 2 upstairs bedrooms do get a bit warm, but there are lots of windows, fans and air conditioning, if needed.

The exterior features include 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.
