Perfect, stunning, relaxing, great owners

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at this property. Canandaigua, in the summer, can be an "active" city. This property is literally minutes from so much but still very secluded. You get the best of both worlds- a quite retreat with great lake access and a spacious yard, as well as quick access to shops, restaurants, wineries, great golf, a water park and major grocery stores if desired. This property easily accommodated our party of 15 (4 families) and the owners could not have been more attentive. They were there at check in to give us the walk through and remained available throughout our stay. I'll mention a fluke incident that occurred with a newer washing machine on the property. But there was some issue with the digital read out on it and a tech was being sent out from Maytag later in the week (fine with us). But the owner felt that was not acceptable and personally delivered a brand new washing machine the next day for us. Completely exceeded our expectations.

The property itself is not brand new but very well kept. It is a nice mix of elegant and comfortable. Well equipped, and plenty of room to spread out. Lake access is wonderful. A dock that we used for a renal boat and the lake is fairly shallow for kids to easily venture out to swim, fish or kayak. A trip that we would love to repeat! I don't think you could possibly be disappointed at this location.

Delightful mini vacation - FIVE STARS

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite spot to completely relax and feel pampered! Everything was ready as promised when we arrived. The grounds were immaculate - a perfect spot to sit in the shade and enjoy family time together. The beautiful house was a delight with everything we needed waiting for us. Chuck and Linda were the best, helpful in whatever we

needed. We really regretted leaving and are already looking forward to our next visit.

Beautiful property but needs some TLC, left unsatisfied

  • 2 of 5

This past weekend I was invited to an event at this lake house. The location was wonderful but frankly the house was lacking in luxury. It seemed as though the property owners did not prepare for our arrival. There were bugs all throughout the house, on the walls and beds. The hot water was not turned on and we realized it when several people took cold showers. The decor was dated and did not seem like there was even a hint of trying to be a luxurious contemporary home. Small things such as paintings/decor and carpets/runners could have been updated to make it seem more luxurious. I attempted to use the washing machine and the drum did not spin as it needed to be serviced. Additionally many of the lights did not work, the sun room was unusable as there was no light fixture that would turn on. The bushes and hedges were unkept on the side of the house so we were unable to use the side walkway. It is a great property but needs some TLC. For the amount of money we paid I was not satisfied.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the opportunity for Linda and I to respond to this complaint from one guest that evidently was invited to stay. If you review the remainder of the reviews, they are all excellent with rave response that represent the property accurately.To the review posted; The hot water tank was turned to medium position and when the renter called me I asked her to turn temperature to hot setting. Everything was fine with in 20 minutes after she did that. Some people don't require real hot water temperature and therefore medium is best.The home is a beautiful lake home and the decor is representative of the lake community town atmosphere, pictures of happenings and events throughout the years that are quite fitting to the home.I'm not sure if this person feels we should have different pictures, but we never have tried to be a Ritz Carlton Hotel.We have All Season Fresh Air Pest Control, Webster NY, on contract for the season treatments of all pest treatments through out the year, and have been doing a good job for nine years serving us.My wife checked the washing machine and it worked fine.The water has to be turned on for the machine to function properly.On first inspection,the water was turned off, therefore explaining why it ouldn't spin.Regarding the lights,our home has the new Leviton true touch digital light and dimmer controls installed in all the switches.They are, as it sounds, touch for on and off.I checked all the switches throughout the home and every light switch worked.If they had been dimmed off instead of touch the panel to turn off, that would explain the issue. In going through the home with the renter, I showed her that feature and apparently this person wasn't given the operation of the control.These are pretty common and efficient switches used today and I was surprised when I heard this.We also have Absolute Turf and Lawn Property Management, Palymra, NY on contract for maintaining our lawn, trees, and gardens at CLLR. They have done a outstanding job on our property for the last six years and everyone compliments us how nice the grounds are.I talked to the renter on their second day and asked her if there was anything we could do for them and how everything was going.She thanked me and said that the group was having a wonderful time. In closing, this property is everything the other independent reviews have given us.Future renters,please feel free to contact us on any questions.Thank you once more, Chuck and Linda Thomas, Cllr,LLC..

A beautiful place for our yearly family gathering

  • 5 of 5

After looking for several years for the ideal vacation spot for our multi-generational family of 13 , we luckily found Chuck's and Linda's property in Canandaigua. Located on the west side near the top of the lake, the home allows easy access to town & shops. Its spacious lawn, outdoor patio and lakeside location provide inviting, comfortable outdoor living. The inside is large enough for family gatherings and dining yet has enough rooms and smaller spaces for everyone to have some privacy. It's perfect for our 3 families with 6 children ranging in age from 18 months - 13 years; and we're already looking forward to next year.

Great vacation home for a family gathering with something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation in the Finger Lakes and we will definitely return. The house is perfect with its picturesque location, spacious living spaces and fabulous outdoor area. With the flat back yard, dock, outdoor seating, and fire pit, we spent most of our time outside. The view and sunrises are amazing. We loved that everything we needed was nearby- food store, kayaks, wine trails, golf and so much more. Chuck, the owner, was just a phone call away and very helpful. Perfect family vacation home!

This has quickly become our favorite "go to" vacation spot! The entire family starts packing a week ahead in the excitement of enjoying a fantastic time together in this awesome home. It is so easy to plan since Linda and Chuck always take care of us and make sure they know what we have in mind. They recommend great restaurants, events, places to visit and wonderful short day trips. The house is always clean and the property is well-kept. The game room is perfect for everyone and it is also a good spot for anyone who wants to keep up an exercise routine.It is amazing how such a luxurious home can be so comfortable.
