About The Owner

My name is Pam and I am the owner of Happy Days. I work at Wizard of Clay pottery shop in nearby Bristol, NY. When I'm not working I enjoy painting (oil, china & watercolor), drawing, jewelry making, hiking, boating, reading and spending time with my family.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1995

Why The Owner chose Finger Lakes

I grew up in Honeoye and my family has been in this area for generations. We bought Happy Days in 1995 and raised 3 children here. Honeoye Lake is beautiful in Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall. I love waking up to the sound of song birds and waves on the shore. The air is fresh here and the people are friendly.

What makes this cottage unique

Happy Days has a boat dock and a little pebble beach for kids. Comfy chairs and picnic table are right by the shore. It's fun to make a camp fire and roast marshmallows at night. The town of Honeoye is about 4 miles to the north - for shopping, restaurants and playground (Sandy Bottom Beach). There are free concerts at the town gazebo on Friday nights in the Summer. The town of Naples is about 10 miles to the south. Naples has a wonderful farm market (Josephs), a beautiful hiking trail (Grimes Glen), Hazlitt Winery and lots of shops and restaurants. You can be busy every day or completely chill out at Happy Days.

Beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this home justice. It is very large and comfortable and nicely decorated. Owner extremely accomodating. Pets welcome but you would never know any visited there. Family of four had more than enough room. Lots of beautiful nature site seeing in the area.

Labor Day Weekend 2010

  • 5 of 5

In one word, RELAXING! My husband and I spent Labor Day weekend at the cottage with our family and had a wonderful time. The lake house is clean, quiet, comfortable and a little bit of heaven right here on Honeoye Lake. We loved everything from boating and fishing to watching the sun come up over the hills, while sipping coffee in the mornings. I even caught a two foot pike by just casting of the dock. This is a must have location to rent if you are looking for a relaxing cottage in the middle of the Finger Lakes.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying here for 3 years. The location is great and the owner is very helpful and nice. The cottage is clean and in good shape. I would highly recommend this for a family trip. The fishing is very good in Honeyoe lake. I will return this year for at least one week.

Beautiful year round! Available for week-ends, weekly or monthly rentals in winter months. Great location for lots of winter activities like downhill skiing (Bristol Mtn or Hunt Hollow), cross country skiing (Bristol Mtn or Harriett Hollister Spencer Park), snow mobiling (large local trail system) or staying inside with a book looking out at nature's splendor!
