Penn Yan Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Please click on 'Availability' tab for our calendar of open dates, and on 'All Rates', on the right, for our nightly and weekly rates.

This cottage is a lake lover's dream! It was completely remodeled in Spring 2013, and a new half-bath was added in Spring 2016. Right on the water, you can enjoy panoramic views and beautiful sunsets on the spacious deck, or in one of two Florida rooms! We offer public water and sanitation, a big plus over cottages with filtered lake water and septic systems.

Nearby is the town of Penn Yan, with groceries, laundry, restaurants, and every amenity you'll need. And you're in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country, and a short drive from dozens of wineries and craft breweries, offering world class vintages and excellent food. You're also close to a marina, a beautiful lakeside public park, golf, and much more!

You're also close to the charming towns of Hammondsport and Watkins Glen, NY, both of which won "Coolest Small Towns in America" designation in travel publications.

The cottage sleeps 6 very comfortably, with one of the 3-season Florida rooms doubling as a third bedroom. We also welcome your pets! You're going to love it here!

About Bryan Maslin

I grew up in Canandaigua, NY, in the heart of the the Finger Lakes region. I've loved this area since I was a boy... swimming, boating and photography. My wife and I have vacationed all around the Finger Lakes for years, and in late 2012 we were fortunate to become cottage owners. Spring, summer, or fall, the Finger Lakes region is among the most beautiful in the country.

Bryan Maslin purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Bryan Maslin chose Keuka Lake

The Chalet at Keuka is quaint and charming, comfortable and affordable. Unlike some Finger Lakes properties, The Chalet rests only a few steps from the road, and right on the water. We are very excited to be on Keuka Lake, and have remodeled the cottage for a great vacation experience. When comparing rates and amenities to other Finger Lakes properties, we think you'll find The Chalet very appealing!

What makes this cottage unique

Close proximity to the towns of Penn Yan, Hammondsport and Watkins Glen, with beautiful parks and glens, easy access to many of the Finger Lakes' award-winning wineries, fine dining, golf, and so much more!

Perfect cottage right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cottage in September for a mini-anniversary getaway. We had a wonderful visit!! The house is excellent - great location close to Penn Yan, very clean, updated and cozy. Not to mention it's right on the lake with an amazing view! We brought our two dogs on the trip too, which was very convenient! Bryan was very easy to work with and extremely accommodating. We are looking forward to our next stay at this house!

Thanks, Bryan!

A Good Choice.

  • 5 of 5

Spent three nights at the cottage. It was most enjoyable-beautiful lakefront with deck and enclosed sunroom to enjoy the views. Close to town. Cottage was very clean, nice layout, stocked with everything we needed. A plus is the kayaks available for guest use. We were there for the fall dog show at Sampson State Park and had a very relaxing long weekend...and of course visited our share of wineries while there. Thank you Bryan.

Excellent Stay on Keuka Lake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this vacation rental in May 16'. I cannot recommend this place more and will look for this location on future stays on Keuka Lake/Finger Lakes region.

The house is beautifully renovated and very comfortable for couples or for entire families (sleeps up to 6 I'd say comfortably if need be). The deck overlooking the lake is very pleasant and right on top of the northern edge of Keuka Lake and comes complete with a gas grill and a kayak. The inside of the house has been well stocked with comfortable beds/linens and a well stocked kitchen. I won't go into everything provided but suffice to say the owners' listing is accurate.

As far as the owner, communication with the owner was easy and fast prior to the visit and everything was spelled out in detail and well prepared for in advance so there was no need to contact the owner during the visit.

Whether you plan to visit the area to spend time out on the water on beautiful Keuka Lake or sampling the many wonderful wineries of Keuka Lake, or simply enjoying summer in rural America; this is an ideal spot and the best recommendation I can come up with is that I would gladly return next time I'm back in the area.

We want to thank you Bryan for sharing you wonderful cottage with us! It was very well equipped. You have thought of everything. Very nice towels, linens and a fully stocked kitchen . We have rented other VRBO properties and there wasn't even hand soap!

We took advantage of the Keuka Lake area visiting wineries and golfing at Lakeside CC....all so close!

So nice sitting out on your deck at the end of the day.....very peaceful!

We hope to return.....

A great time

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, who live in Wisconsin, met our two friends, who live in Germany, at the Chalet at Keuka. We had a wonderful time. The chalet was clean, tastefully decorated, and well equipped for everything. We really enjoyed the deck and the beautiful views of the lake. We had fun exploring the area, visiting the distillery, a winery and finding good places to eat. We had one day of rain, but it didn't matter, as we found plenty to do. What a beautiful and interesting area! Thanks for sharing your condo with us. We have great memories of our stay at the Chalet at Keuka.

Great Place for a getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this great cottage right on Keuka Lake! Bryan the owner was great to work with! We stayed for two night, there were 6 of us & we had a great time!!! The cottage is very modern with comfortable beds....the outside deck overlooking the lake was perfect. We enjoyed using the kayaks...they were a nice bonus! We were able to wine taste on both Keuka & Seneca lake as this cottage was in an ideal location! We would definitely stay here again!!!
