If you’re looking for a relaxing getaway on the Finger Lakes, you’ll find it at Buttercup Cottage. This unique property features the elbow room of a park-like setting and offers outstanding privacy, gorgeous views and the charm of a country cottage.
The property includes two cottages that can sleep 8 guests. The main cottage features two bedrooms (one with queen bed, one with a bunk that sleeps 3), kitchen with eat-in area, a living room with cable TV, and a screen porch with panoramic views of the lake.
The guest cottage is ideal for visitors, in-laws or older kids. It includes a king bed and a twin, a bathroom with shower stall, and large screen porch with a picnic table facing the lake. There's also an outdoor shower facing west that’s ideal for rinsing off in the sun after a dip in the lake.
The yard is unusually large for a lake property, occupying .8 acre of grass for you to play Whiffle ball or touch football, or just lounge in the sun.
To the south of the main house, overlooking the lake, is a gazebo with a picnic table for dinners looking at the lake as the sun sets.
The waterfront, accessible by stairs, features an L-shaped dock and a boat house with canoe.
Buttercup Cottage is located on the west side of Honeoye Lake, about a mile south of the town of Honeoye. This quiet location, surrounded by friendly, quiet, summer-long neighbors, is an ideal setting for a relaxing vacation.
Things to do include some of the best walleye and bass fishing in NY State, visiting local wineries, or enjoying the breathtaking view from Harriet Hollister State Park, at the south end of the lake.
For boaters, Honeoye Lake has a state boat launch and the clean, quiet lake is idea for all kinds of water sports.
