About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage On The Water's Edge Next To Creek With Waterfall!

Just below the original woodsy one lane road that years ago connected Hammondsport and Penn Yan, sits our cottage on the water. Our very quiet one lane road is ideal for hikers, bikers, dog-walking, and roller-bladers. It also provides an out-of-the way spot for your boat trailer and overflow parking should you need it.

Our cottage is hassle-free. No Stairs allows you to unload luggage and groceries quickly and start to relax. We have renovated this cottage with all new furnishings, appliances, and decorations just a few short years ago.

The kitchen is equipped with a new refrigerator and ice maker, dishwasher, electric stove and microwave. The main living space is air-conditioned and heated by a brand new Mitsubishi heat pump that is so quiet you won't even know it's on! Ombiance & supplemental heat is provided by a charming propane fireplace. We have two queen beds, one full bed, and a full size pullout hide-a-bed. There is a Sony HD flatscreen TV with 250 cable channels for your enjoyment. Wifi is also available and a DVD player with numerous movies in our library.

The kitchen island is surrounded by custom oak cabinets, a dishwasher, electric stove, and a new refrigerator with ice-maker.

There is a 3-sided wrap around deck. For those inclement days, part of the deck is covered for out-door grilling with your professional 5 burner propane grill. The deck is elevated for a wonderful view of Keuka Lake north to the Bluff and south to the charming, award-winning town of Hammondsport. Also available is plenty of lawn furniture. A fire pit is fun on the beautiful nights.

There is also a large 30' by 13' dock that will please the kids while they are fishing for your dinner. There is also a 19' SeaRay Bowrider I/O available to rent should you wish to enjoy more waters sports, cruising or going to dinner by boat.

If your capacity needs are greater & you could use a second cottage, please see our cottage right next door at VRBO #3800304. We would be pleased to entertain making a package deal for the two together!

About Bob Guinan

Keuka Lake is a special place for us and we have owned properties there since the late 70's. We moved from Rochester to Tampa Bay, FL in 1990. We now own two cottages side by side and are looking forward to completing our third one in 2015.

Bob Guinan purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Bob Guinan chose Keuka Lake

We bought this property because we loved the fact that it was drive-to and seeing the sunsets over the town of Hammondsport closed the deal. Added to that was the charming waterfall that flows right down to the water's edge.

What makes this cottage unique

Eastside, drive-to, near Hammondsport and the wineries, great fishing, quiet and secluded with a resort feel.

Great Vacation Spot for 3 Generations

  • 5 of 5

With my sister and our husbands, we rented both cottages together and stayed for the week with our three kids and two sets of grandparents. This was a perfect spot for our family gathering. We enjoyed the great views and the docks. We had fun feeding the ducks and the kids loved the kayaks that were available to use. We had such fun preparing our meals together while looking out at the lake. The porches provided a great gathering spot for everyone for morning coffee and also a place for the grandparents to sit and watch the kids swim and play in the water. At the end of day we all sat together to watch the sun go down and enjoy a campfire. The cottages were very clean and had everything we needed; we would definitely stay here again! Thanks for providing such a special place!

Wonderful, close to water, lots to do!

  • 5 of 5

We just finished spending a week at this wonderful property and already can't wait to return! The house itself is warmly decorated, evoking a sense of comfort and peace. It is right on the water edge; the view from the living room is all lake! The upstairs deck is perfect for meals, and the dock is large enough to comfortably seat several people while you watch the kids jump off the dock! There are water toys like kayaks and a canoe, and plenty of noodles and floaties! We really couldn't have asked for anything more. I've stayed at many vacation homes via Homeaway, and this was the greatest experience both because of the home and because of how friendly and responsive Bob was leading up to our vacation. I recommend this property without hesitation!

Family Week on the Lke

  • 5 of 5

We chose to rent both cottages, the blue and salmon for our week at the lake. As children, my cousin and I grew up on Keuka Lake with our grandparents. We wanted our children to experience the lake and make memories that would last them a lifetime. We loved the cottage. It had everything we needed inside and out. I would recommend these cottages to anyone. The location was great and we LOVED being able to drive to the front door. Thanks for the memories!

Peaceful and relaxing! Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our family of 5 adults and (2) Shih-tzus. Clean and comfortable with stunning views. We were located minutes from downtown Hammondsport and a 30- minute drive to Watkins Glen.

Convenient and cozy cottage on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

So when I write reviews, one of the first questions I want to answer is: Would I consider the property again? The answer in this case is a resounding YES!. The key for us was simple, a quiet place on the lake, the ability to drive to the property vs. taking stairs and within short drive to Hammondsport. This place met all those requirements. Upon arrival we noticed the wind had blown over the deck umbrella causing some minor damage. A quick call to the owner, left a message and received a call back quickly. He offered to replace it for us immediately and that was appreciated. Upon walking in, the house was clean and ready for us to enjoy. The house has two large sliders in the front with ample view of the lake, the front/mid portion of the cottage is very open so entertaining and "elbow" room was ample. The bedrooms were a wee bit tight (go easy on lots of luggage) but understandable as we only needed them for sleep anyways. The elevated deck on the north side of the home provided plenty of room for the 4 of us and our 2 dachshunds to sit outside and enjoy the view. To top it off, the owner stopped by briefly to make sure everything was going well and made all of us feel welcomed. So overall, this cottage is easy to get to/from, super close to Hammondsport, well equipped kitchen (forgot to mention that), ample room for us and a pleasant place to stay. Suffice to say, it will be our number #1 choice on our next trip. As an aside, the owner also rents the property next door that would also be great if you needed more space for extended family. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Our goal is make our guests comfortable & happy on their vacation. After all, it's fairly risky going to an unknown location after spending good money just hoping it will be worthwhile. It sounds from this review that we succeeded & that makes us feel super! We thank these NICE people for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review & hope to see them again. Now on to the rest of the Season & trying to make all our other guests just as comfortable & happy!

Love the location, the house, everything. The place was very clean and was in a perfect spot right on the lake. It had everything we needed for our group of 6 adults. Would definitely recommend staying there!
