About Sharon Matkosky
Built by our grandparents when our Mom and her twin sister were just in their teens, this home is filled with a lifetime of special memories. Lifelong family bonds, over 5 generations, have been forged with our siblings, cousins, aunts/uncles, grandparents, extended family and friends during those endless days of summer magic. Many of us continue to travel from far and wide to come back to the lake each year, providing our families with the opportunity to create ongoing priceless memories.
Why Sharon Matkosky chose Hammondsport
Our Waneta lake house has been the site of many fun-filled family gatherings and offers an escape from the every day hectic pace of daily life. The house has been expanded and updated over the past several years to provide a space where you can truly sit back and relax. The lake has a shallow, gradual slope so the kids can splash around without any hidden drop-offs. Fishermen will love fishing off the 42 foot dock! Enjoy evenings sitting by a lakeside bonfire, watching the sky explode with more stars than you could ever see back home. Most of our renters come back year after year as this is a place that is great for friends vacationing together, families celebrations or for couples looking to relax and unwind.
What makes this House unique
The house has been renovated with a prep-kitchen and half bath on the lower level so lakeside grilling and entertaining is a snap. Enjoy the quiet dawn of morning sunrises from the upper balcony or side deck. The large L-shaped dock has a bench seat, great for fishing or just sitting. Multiple tie downs and bumpers line the dock, should you want to bring a personal boat. When its time to unwind from the days' adventures, recently upgraded mattresses and crisp linens will provide a great nights' sleep. Mini-split AC / heating units are located on each level to provide comfort throughout your stay.

We enjoyed our stay. Spent the day going to the wineries. Had a fantastic time !

Beautiful Location...will return soon
We enjoyed our stay at the house and surrounding area. Met the local cat, who was very friendly. Only issue - one of the plastic chairs broke while sitting at firepit. Everyone was OK!
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Sorry to hear about the chair breaking & glad everyone was OK- will be replaced ASAP.
Great lake house! It's the first time everyone said that they want to come back.
Beautiful lake! Great house!
Glad to hear everyone enjoyed their stay with us! Thanks for taking the time to provide a review.
Amazing lake house getaway
This house was AMAZING. Everything was clean and perfect for our weekend getaway. The pictures don't do this place justice. There was a beautiful deck leading right to a private dock. We had plenty of places to sleep and there were many tables and chairs set up for relaxing and eating together as a group. I would absolutely recommend this house and I'd love to stay here again.
Waneta Lake House
Excellent, clean, roomy, beautiful lake view with swimming, boating, fishing, friendly neighbors, quiet and peaceful! Really enjoyed our stay at this property.
So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay!
Nicely decorated house and property
This was a comfortable and welcoming vacation lake house. Two fully stocked kitchens. Comfortable beds and living room furniture. Lots of seating choices outside. Dock made it easy to pull out paddle boards and kayaks each night. We weren’t used to septic system and well water - tried to limit showers and flushes. Only issue during week was septic system alarm going off and some odor outside. Yes, we would definitely rent this home again!
Glad you enjoyed your stay at our home. While Lake septic systems can be touchy we are committed to resolving any alarm issues immediately should they occur.
