Welcome to our Home-away-from-home! This is truly a charming retreat from the everyday rat-race. 'Whispering Waters' is a year-round home and is located only 3 minutes from downtown Penn Yan on the Sunny east-side of Keuka Lake. The property is deep, sitting well off the main road, perfect for peace and quiet or playing in the spacious yard. The year-round nature of the home makes it ideal for all seasons...don't miss Fall Foliage in the Finger Lakes!!!
Inside you'll find personal touches and comfortable appointments, not the sterile atmosphere of Rental Agency properties. The full kitchen is bright and cheery with plenty of counter space. Upstairs there are 2 full bedrooms(1 Queen bed, 2 Twins) with a sitting room(complete with game and puzzle library) and full-bath (shower). There is a spacious Master Bedroom with full-bath (shower/tub) on the south side. A 3rd full bath (shower) with laundry room is located off the living room. Also off the living room is a fabulous sun room overlooking the lake and waterfront, with full dining table and sleeper sofa for extra sleeping space. In the warmer weather relax on the deck which also overlooks the lake. The views are stunning, especially at sunset.
For water activity, the staircase leads to some of the finest lakefront available on Keuka Lake. The natural pebble beach and gradual entry swimming area are ideal for families with children.
Activities in the area are abundant for all seasons. If you like wine-tasting, you'll have close to 100 wineries to choose from between the Keuka Lake and Seneca Lake Wine Trails. There is even a winery only a quarter-mile walk from the house!

I grew up in Penn Yan, and although I've lived in many states along the way, my heart has always been rooted here in the Finger Lakes. My family lives in New Jersey now, but we spend every summer vacation on Keuka Lake. Our children are learning, as I did, all the joy that comes with lake living. They are making lasting friends and memories every year.
Lori Dahlberg purchased this house in 2003
There are so many things to do in this area that we NEVER get bored. We always have a list as long as my arm of things we want to do, and places we want to see, but we never seem to finish the list...it's just too hard to leave the lake!
'Whispering Waters' is located in the best place possible: just far enough from town to feel that you're 'away from it all', but close enough that you can get in for whatever you may need in only a couple of minutes. I've seen a lot of lakefront, but the swimming area we have is so nice and gradual, and almost completely weed-free that I can't imagine finding better anywhere on any lake!
We had a wonderful stay at your house. The house is adorable and comfortable and had everything we needed.
Thank you ,
The cottage was in a great location, convenient to wineries on both Seneca and Keuka Lakes and other attractions, and the views of Keuka lake from the enclosed porch were beautiful. It was also spotlessly clean and very well stocked with everything you would need to feel at home. Considering the number of beds, bedrooms and bathrooms, it was an excellent value for the nightly cost. I would definitely book another stay here when I'm in the area, and would recommend it to anyone else looking for a comfortable place to stay in a beautiful setting.
We had a wonderful stay at Whispering Waters. We found the place to be clean and cozy. There was plenty of room to spread out although we spent most of our time in the sun room. The cottage was a great home base as we spent the weekend at the Windmill and various wineries and breweries around the lake. The owner, Lori, was very responsive and flexible with requests. The girls are already talking about our next get together!
We stayed four nights at this cozy little cottage with our daughter, son in law, and 14 month old granddaughter. The cottage was easily child proofed and had plenty of room to accommodate my son, 16 month old granddaughter, and the in laws when they visited for the day. The location is very convenient to Pen Yann and provided beautiful views of the lake and fall colors. The weather didn't cooperate enough for us to enjoy the beach front fire pit, but all in all we had a great experience. The only reason I didn't give five stars is the that it was a little hard to regulate the temperature. There was a space heater so we were able to warm up the baby's room with that. The frying pans weren't the best, but otherwise we had everything we needed and were very comfortable. Thank you Lori for sharing your charming retreat with us.
Our stay was very enjoyable. The perfect location on the east side of the lake. Close to Penn Yan and Keuka Springs winery. Great sunset on the large beach area and perfect view for the Keuka College fireworks!
The house was perfect for a get-together we had with family and friends. Plenty of space for everyone, great view from the back room and the beach/dock on property. Very homey and reasonably priced. The house was close to winerys, brewerys and other necesities while on vacation. Lori the owner was great to work with, very helpful and accomodating to questions before booking and while we were staying in the house. Felt like we were staying at a family members house.
We had a great time on Keuka this week. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped to meet and exceed our expectations. We had a great time at the water and the water front and dock were great for all sunning, swimming, and boating activities. We were also close to Penn Yan and a lot of good sights to see. We had an overall great experience.
Wineries in abundance, Watkins Glen Gorge, Park, and Racetrack, Bristol Ski Mountain, Corning Glassworks, Many State Parks, Majestic Hills Public Golf Course.
