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 Samsung HD Smart flatscreen TV with 125 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. Two 10' Kayaks, a canoe plus a Sunfish Sailboat are available for your use.

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.

Bob Guinan purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Bob Guinan chose Hammondsport

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.

Incredibly scenic property that could not have been more perfect for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We were shocked upon arrival to see how beautiful the property was and how well maintained it is. Everything was clean, updated and all the amenities were at our fingertips. My 8 yr. old son had never fished before and had the time of his life pulling in over 30 fish during the week right off of our dock. The location is also perfectly within a short drive to Hammondsport, Penn Yan and Watkins Glenn where there are never a shortage of things to do or great places to eat. I would never hesitate to stay at the Guinan's places again as they could not have been more gracious hosts!!

Owner's Response: We certainly appreciate the very positive review, it makes our effort worth it. But even more important is to hear that a younger guest, in this case 8 years old, had an experience that he might very well remember the rest of his life. That is most special to us & we love to hear of those memorable experiences! Thank you!

Clean and modest accomodations just feet from the clearest lake water in the Finger Lakes. Drive to your door. Can also rent house next door. Easy to dock pier. Views magnificent. Close to Hammondsport for quick errands or restaurants.

Everything you need, nothing you don't

  • 5 of 5

We have now stayed at both properties owned Bob, and it is a pleasure. While the cottages are minimal in size, the amenities are all there, and the location can't be beat so close to Hammondsport.

Wonderful week.

  • 5 of 5

The great weather certainly didn't hurt, but the stay was just about perfect otherwise. House was clean and functional. Outside eating a huge plus. Fire pit every night, good fishing every morning . Great hiking right around the corner, good eats right in towns of Hammondsport or Penn Yan. What more can you want?

Fishing Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit here 6/10 - 6/16. Nice cottage on the water and no steps. Easy access for kayaks which is something we did every day. I was on the water fishing for 6 to 8 hours every day. I had great success reeling in smallmouth bass as they were still on their beds. They averaged 3.5 lbs, one whopper at 6 lbs 2 oz. All of the fishing was local to the cottage as I was fishing from a kayak. Towards Hammondsport from the cottage I was able to reel in a few trout, East of the cottage it was smallmouth mania. They really like the topwater baits this time of year and were busting out of the water to get it.

This place is in a great location for the fisherman or family vacation. Hammondsport city center is just over a mile away. Close to the wine trail, breweries, and beach area. The cottage was spotless, well decorated, and the raised deck overlooking the lake was a nice place to relax and have dinner. We will be back.
