Mini vacation

  • 4 of 5

We have a good time. Lots of fishing and visits to The Crooked Lake Ice Cream Parlor, Bully Hill for peanut butter pie, several wineries, and every antique shop we could find. The cottage was just the right size for our family of four and our dog. The dog loved the porch and spent hours napping on it. The view was fantastic whether looking out the living room picture window or from the porch. Thank you for sharing your cottage and allowing it to be pet friendly.

We stayed at this cottage for the third year in a row and hope to be able to come here for many years to come! We have three teenage boys that completely take over the loft as if they have been there all their life! It is a place we all look forward to all summer and talk about it a lot with all the memories we have there already. Our two blonde labs get all excited to be there and always seem to make quite an impression wherever they go. My parents who are 81 and 73 have come every year with us and enjoy it more than can be put into words. My father who has bone cancer has every intention of coming there as long as he is able and the memories that my mom and him have with grandkids and family members being there are priceless...We love the layout, the lake, the amenities that are provided for the kitchen and bathrooms, the area where it is located so close to Hammondsport for paddle board and boat rentals, the wonderful neighbors who we have had the priviledge of getting to know, and the pure family history with which the cottage was put there, such a special story....we loved it again and hope to continue this tradition for many years. Thank you for sharing this special place.

This is our second stay at this cottage and it was just as awesome as last year!!! My four teenage boys love this place and had the time of there lives here between skiing, paddleboarding, and kayaking and just goofing off...There is something very warm about coming here, my parents who are in their seventies absolutely love the porch and feel the same way. Our labs are also great fans, it is absolutely a warm inviting, beautiful place on a perfect location on the lake. We look forward to it becoming a tradition in our family for many years to come....thank you for a wonderful stay!!

Sweet cottage

  • 4 of 5

My family and I have vacationed in this cottage for many years. The renovated bathrooms are really great, and the cottage is charming, but the best part is the very large porch overlooking the lake. I could sit here for hours watching the boats go by and taking in the beauty of the bluff, which is right across the lake. This is the widest part of the lake and the cottage is an easy little walk to the Switz for drinks or dinner. If you want a fancy cottage, this is not it, but, it is great for families who want to enjoy the lake and be together in a very cute and cared for cottage. We can't wait to go back.

Keuka lake cottage

  • 2 of 5

The house is comfortable, but old. The kitchen is small with very little counter space. It was difficult to prepare food for very many people. The upstairs is okay for kids, but not too good for adults.Windows are painted shut so the only ventilation is via the window air conditioner. Bathrooms were clean and roomy. The best part of the whole house was the porch. It has a beautiful view. Neighbors are close on both sides and noisy. Dock is old and short--it was very difficult to tie up a boat. We felt the rental was over-priced.
