About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Minutes from the quaint town of Hammondsport, this recently remodeled eastside contemporary home has unobstructed lake/winery views through three sets of full glass sliding doors. With its U-shaped dock with multiple swim ladders only steps from the house, you will feel the lake beconing you to come out and play. As sunset arrives you will find yourself gravitating to the dockside firepit with a bottle of one of the local wines sharing highlights of the days activities while the sky changes from brilliant orange to ebony dotted with endless stars.

The house itself boasts 4 bedrooms, air conditioning, a fully appointed kitchen, 2 story family room, Spiral staircase (there is an alternate second story entrance from the outside) Washer/Dryer, built/in gas fireplace, covered porch with table and chairs, and lots of books, movies, and games. The house is also wi-fi accessable.

The house is located close to restraunts, wineries, marinas. It is situated on a less traveled access road which is ideal for walking and bike riding.

About The Owner

Both of us love to travel and have done so both domestically and abroad. still, with all the sites we have seen traveling, we are still amazed with the beauty of the views at keuka lake.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Keuka Lake

After visiting friends whose parents owned a cottage on the lake. We simply fell in love with the lake and the area. After an exausting 2 yr search we just happened to spot a brand new listing for what would become our little piece of paradise.

What makes this house unique

This is truly a family vacation destination. You cannnot help but relax and unwind.

wonderful 4th of July week stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this cottage on the lake. The house was immaculate and had everything you could ask for. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need to make a meal at home (except the food), there is tons of seating inside for comfy lounging, and lots of seating outdoors to enjoy the lake and the views. The house is very well taken care of and has obviously been redone in the recent past. The owners respond very quickly to any questions you may have and the neighbors are super friendly. They even let us borrow their paddleboard! And having AC is a great bonus...the sun can be very hot on the east side of the lake in the afternoon.

The location on Keuka is great. You are a few miles North of Hammondsport for a quick trip to the grocery store or to walk around the shops and restaurants. It is a few miles South of the Switz for a great on the water cocktail and meal. There are tons of wineries and breweries in the area as well for day trip options. When sitting on the dock at the cottage you can see across the lake to multiple wineries up on the hill and we also were able to view a bunch of the sea planes taking off.

All in all the house was beautiful and clean and the location was perfect. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at this wonderful house on Keuka Lake. Every year there seems to be upgrades that improve our stay making it more comfortable and convenient. What we love the most is stepping out of the sliding glass doors directly onto the dock for fishing, swimming, sitting around the gas fireplace, or just enjoying the view. The fishing members of our group caught a variety of fish, including enough (six large bass, rock bass and a large sunfish) to provide dinner for two nights during our week there. This is our first year with such luck fishing! Thank you Donna and Dan for allowing us to vacation in your lovely home. It feels like home away from home!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had another great vacation here! We have stayed here several times and have always enjoyed it! The owners do an excellent job maintaining the house and the waterfront location is great for swimming, boating, fishing or just relaxing on the deck and enjoying the amazing views of the lake and mountains. The neighbors are very friendly and helpful. There is a lot to do in the area as well: nice restaurants, wineries and charter fishing. The town of Hammondsport is very nice and conveniently close. We plan to return again!
