About Kathy

We both grew up near the Finger Lakes and spent time with our families on Canandaigua Lake. We love it here!

Kathy purchased this house in 2002

Why Kathy chose Canandaigua

We love this part of the lake so much that the only way we would move was to find one in the same area, which we did this past winter. Our new place is only a couple dozen houses north! You can see our new place from the dock at this property.

What makes this house unique

Proximity to town and attractions is the best! Don't waste time in your car!!! The sandy bottom of the lake in this area makes it perfect for fun and games in the water. It's not very deep in this area so the water has a chance to warm up and make swimming comfortable. The neighbors are friendly and the road is private.

Fabulous Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

John and Kathy's lake house on Canandaigua Lake is wonderful! The pictures don't do justice to what you find when you walk in. We absolutely loved the kitchen (just what I dream of) and the space especially on the first floor is wonderful especially if you have a number of people. The bedrooms and two bathrooms were perfect! As for the outside setting...well we couldn't have asked for anything more. It was beautiful. Spacious yard, plenty of seating and eating area as well as a great fire pit. The view of the lake is heavenly. We truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. We highly recommend this lake house to anyone considering it, you won't be disappointed!

There were 11 of us on a family vacation. The house was beautiful. Had EVERYTHING we needed. We rented a boat from Sutter Marina which was so much fun. I would recommend this spot to anyone. We felt Kathy made sure everything was perfect for us. Had wonderful neighbors on both sides. Very pet friendly too. Just need to bring your bathing suits and food! Thank you Kathy.

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is set up very nicely. Well furnished. The dock and boat hoist were perfect. I liked the fact that it had a small lawn in back. Plenty of parking for 6-8 cars. We had 60 people there and had no problems at all. Parking was an issue for that many people though. Great location. Kathy was very available via text. The house was updated and clean. I would go back again. Thank you Kathy.

Beautiful place for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy and John's place was perfect for a winter vacation week for our extended family. There was plenty of space for everyone to spread out, the dogs enjoyed the backyard, and we cooked every day in their wonderful kitchen. The house is very comfortable, and we had a great time. Communication from Kathy throughout the rental process was excellent. Thank you!

Lovely Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable house in a great location. Updated, spacious, very clean property with everything you need. Yard and dock were great for the grandkids. Quiet area, nice for walking, friendly neighbors. We made good use of the kayak, visited some wineries, ate at a couple good local restaurants and enjoyed a nice evening concert at Sonnenberg Gardens. The week flew by and we were sad to leave. Thanks to John & Kathy for a great week. Hope to visit again!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very comfortable. The house had plenty of space for the 6 of us to spread out. The furnishings are modern and we felt like we are at home. Definitely not roughing it. The neighbors are very nice and it is a quiet area. Canandaigua is our favorite place to go in the summer and look forward to it next year! Thanks John and Kathy for a memorable stay.
