About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to our waterfront retreat. We are so excited to share our lovely 3-bedroom lake home with you.

We are located on Lower West Lake Road, approximately 1 mile south of Penn Yan, and just under a mile from Keuka College. A perfect location to enjoy the peace and serenity of the lake, while still being able to enjoy the amenities of Penn Yan.

The perfect location to bring the family for a summer getaway, or meet up with old friends for a fun week on the water. We can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people. You will love walking the dog, taking a bike ride or morning run on the quiet road. Wake up to the waves hitting the seawall just below your window. Then enjoy the sunrise with your morning coffee on the lakeside deck. Enjoy a day full of fishing, sunning, swimming or boating. Prepare a gourmet meal in our fully stocked kitchen while sampling some of our amazing local Finger Lakes wines before retiring to one of the three bedrooms (1 full, 2 queen).

If it happens to rain. you will love the open floorplan of the lower level, complete with cable tv, WIFI internet, and selections of books, board games, puzzles and movies. You could also make this the day to go enjoy some of the local wineries, shopping, restaurants, or museums.

Why Jenni Patchett chose Keuka Lake

Brad grew up on Keuka Lake and has always dreamed of owning here. One of his greatest memories is taking the boat out and cruising along the shore and picking out the lake home that we would want to own. We are so excited to finally have the opportunity to enjoy our piece of Keuka Lake and share it with you.

Ok house but great location. This home needs work and lots of TLC. I was disappointed.

  • 3 of 5

The home was tough to find since the street numbers were changed and the owner didn't communicate this to us. We had to call Jenn to figure it out. She was very helpful. Also, they forgot to tell us the home is for sell as well. There are lots of stairs to get to the home so if someone has any physical issues this would be difficult. The home is in a great location but the house is need of updating and lighting. It was very difficult to see at night going down the stairs and at the front door because the outside light doesn't work. There is a light at the lower stairs but none at the top. We used a flashlight. I feel bad for the owners because the next door neighbor is not a nice person. A busy body who doesn't mind his own business but was ok for him to blast his music. Very strange. Inside the house had nice carpets, furniture and kitchen stuff. The floor in the kitchen has a large water stain, the slider screen was broken so we were unable to leave door open for fresh air. The deck had plenty of chairs but tons of spiders. There were lots of spiders in the home as well. One of the bedrooms was loaded were them which made the room unusable. The first night we used the room unaware of the issue and I was bite by a spider. I tried to vacuum the house to get rid of them but was unsuccessful. I appreciate the owners allowing my dog. The Wifi did not work either. I wish the house was advertised better. The location makes the house but the house does not make the stay. I feel the amount charged for this home is over priced based on the state of the home. The owners were very pleasant and responsive but not upfront about the state of home.

Fantastic location!!

  • 4 of 5

Right on the lake - can't beat the location! Beautiful sunrises!!! The location was very convenient to the wineries, great restaurants and other activities. The stairs to the cottage may be tough for anyone with mobility issues. The cottage was clean and well stocked - everything we needed was there. We had a great long weekend introducing friends to their first taste of the Finger Lakes. Thanks!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cottage as a last minute vacation with our two teenage kids. Booking the cottage and getting all the information we needed about check in was easy and all done electronically. We were so happy to find a place right on the water. The cottage was very clean upon arrival. The kitchen was nicely equipped with everything we needed. It was also nice to have towels provided. The deck overlooking the lake was perfect to just sit and relax. The water was crystal clear and beautiful. It was a perfect size for the 4 of us. The only thing I would suggest is that if you have any mobility issues with stairs it might be a difficult location. Other than that, I would highly recommend it.

lake rental

  • 5 of 5

Great experience, House clean and tidy and exactly as described. good docking for you boaters. great host and easy check in check out. There are some comments in some reviews about a potentially annoying neighbor but we found him very pleasant and nice so if you rent you shouldn't concern yourself that it's an issue.

We had a fabulous time at this cottage. Everything is just as described and even better. Owners are fabulous to work with. The views are spectacular right off the front porch. This will be our cottage of choice to rent every year we can make it to Keuka Lake.

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two boys booked this house for a last minute vacation. When we arrived it was just as described. The house was very clean and the location and views of the lake was perfect. We pulled our 24 foot pontoon boat right up to the dock and tied it down with the whips supplied to the dock. Our boys swam right off the dock in front of the house and caught fish. Even though there was not enough parking for a large boat trailer Keuka State park allows you to keep your trailer for a 7 dollar a night fee. The only incident that happened was after we arrived one of our boys was so excited to see the lake he walked through the screen door leading to the deck. No injuries, The owner was very understanding after we told her what happened. The location of the cottage is perfect for running into town to get groceries etc. The beds were nice and comfortable and the supplied linens and towels were an added plus. We will definitely be returning to this house in the future. Dan
