About the property

Welcome to this remodeled cottage on Honeoye Lake, with awesome views from the north to the south end of the Lake. There is a small beach area with a dock giving you access to swimming and an area to launch and store kayaks or a canoe. A dock allows you to bring your boat or water craft for great fishing and water activities on a lake that has low boating and recreational traffic. A front deck allows you to sit outside and enjoy the lake.

The cottage is handicapped accessible with plentiful parking available. It is located on a private road, so it is a quiet retreat with low traffic. The cottage is on level ground to the lake, so no steps to enjoy sitting out close to the water. There will be a few steps down to the dock on the property. Newly added handrail down steps to dock Spring 2015.

There is lots of shade with outdoor furniture and tables to enjoy daytime outdoor relaxation, nature, activities overlooking the lake, or even lawn games. Enjoy your evenings around the fire pit, also provided on the property. It’s a great way to BBQ and entertain outside as well.

Inside there are 2 separate bedrooms, and a remodeled bathroom. There is a remodeled and fully equipped kitchen, new appliances and dining area. An enclosed sunroom completes this cozy cottage with a sleeper sofa. There is WiFi and it has a 32 inch TV with cable service; DVD player and numerous board games, puzzles and magazines. Ceiling fans and standing fan in most rooms and an A/C window unit assist with those warm to hot days.

The cottage is located only 2 miles from downtown Honeoye, which has a grocery store, dollar store, pharmacy, liquor store, local restaurants & coffee shops, ice cream store, gas stations, library, bank, and post office. Local artisan shops are open to the public.

Sandy Bottom Creek is the local swimming area and park for Honeoye Lake and has supervised swimming during open season. There is also a large children’s playground downtown at the school open to the public and during the summer Honeoye has free Friday night concerts at the gazebo.

We are near numerous wineries, some having not only wine, but beer tastings. Hiking or biking trails offer various levels of ability. Harriett Foster State Park is nearby and the view of Honeoye Lake is absolutely breath taking. It not only has walking/hiking trails, but has mountain biking trails for the adventurist. Cumming Nature Center is a short drive and offers an educational building as well as various walking trails. There are numerous biking trails in the Finger Lakes region and also the Erie Canal Trailway.

Honeoye Lake has a state boat launch and the lake offers all kinds of water sports. There is Trident Marina located on the lake for rental needs. You can also contact West Lake Kayak & Paddle Rental that will deliver to you.

There are several golf courses within a short drive into Victor, Naples, Canandaigua, or Rochester.

A favorite to all is Grimes Glen, in Naples, where you can walk along a creek to beautiful waterfalls. Naples also has a Farmer’s Market, Monica's Pies for great homemade pie and jams, and the Bristol Valley Theater. Take time to visit the Wizard of Clay pottery shop, which is just over three miles away. Here you will find beautiful pieces of artwork and functional clay pieces. If you are looking for a day trip: Victor has the Eastview Mall and the Finger Lakes Scenic Railway. Canandaigua has Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion; Penn Yan has the Windmill Farm and Craft Market – open Saturdays only; Corning Glass located in Corning, NY; Watkins Glen on Seneca Lake has a well known state park and Nascar race track; Genesee Country Village & Museum is located in Mumford, NY. There is Stony Brook State Park located in Dansville, with a $7 fee, but with a full day of activities. Also, the town of Avon has the Vintage Drive-In showing newer movies rain or shine.

You will be impressed with this cottage as so many of our guests have been. Why not let us help you enjoy your visit to Honeoye Lake in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of NYS.

This is the best place for rest and relaxation. The only fault--time flies by much TOO FAST!

We have every comfort of home plus the luxury of being lakeside. The hosts are gracious and ever so helpful. We took a couple of side trips, casino and winery. Even the one rainy day didn't hold us back. Looking forward to our return trip. Best Place To Go!!!!!

Comfy and scenic

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was delightful and the hosts beyond compare. The cottage was exceptionally clean and nicely equipped and furnished. We had our own dock, deck and sunporch. My grand daughter particularly enjoyed the many available games and the boat rides.

If I would change anything, a few staples like sugar, oil, flour etc. would be useful, however, I see that having those items may cause health concerns for some guests.

When we left, we felt like family, not guests.

Good vacation spot

  • 4 of 5

Bob and Sally were very accommodating as usual. The cottage is clean and updated. Plenty of electric outlets for your convenience. The outside is neat and clean, with a well manicured lawn and a dock for me to tie up my boat. There is a new gas grill for your use. I enjoyed my vacation and am looking forward to going back again next year.

Start here on vacation - leave here feeling at home....

  • 5 of 5

If you want to feel that you are on vacation...if you want to feel that you have arrived at a place that has only your wishes in mind - if you want to feel that you have gone from being on vacation - to coming home - this is the place to come to. This precious rental is immaculate -and it is so thought filled - wanting to make sure that your every need and yes - even wants - are met. You will never lack for towels, for dinnerware, for silverware, for water - yes - every detail is thought of and fulfilled - and then there are the two beautiful owners next door - who will become your friends - Bob and Sally are amazing - we will come back to vacation - no...we will come back - to come home again. Thank you.
