About Rick & Peg Grape
We LOVE Keuka more than any lake we have ever been to because of the crystal clear weed free water, the beautiful views, the multiple restaurants on the lake and 7 miles from the quaint village of Hammondsport. After renting at Keuka for over 20 years we finally took the plunge and purchased our slice of Keuka Paradise.
Rick & Peg Grape purchased this House in 2016
Why Rick & Peg Grape chose Hammondsport
9551 Crystal Beach Rd Hammondsport 14840 Our cottage is on the coveted East side in the cozy private community called Crystal beach. After renting various cottages for over 20 years which each had between 15 & 60 steps from parking to the lake. We are now located on a level lot with no steps from the parking lot to the beach unless you go through the house and have 2 steps on one side and 5 on the other.
What makes this House unique
With 5 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms and the ability to sleep 14 people it has plenty of room for one large family or even 2 or 3 smaller family's. We have rented 1 bathroom cottages and need I say 2 bathrooms are a MUST have. We have also rented places with only 2 parking spots and now we have more than ample parking. Also some cottages had room for us to sleep but not enough room for us to sit in a living area together. Our family room / dining room area can seat 14+. We are a year round cottage with both a gas fireplace and individual room electric heat along with air conditioning in all 5 bedrooms.

It’s a Grape Life
We had an excellent time during our stay. Rick and Peg met us when we arrived and gave us a great tour of the property and all its amenities. I highly recommend staying there and would love to come back in the future.
Third year coming here, absolutely love this place, you can't go wrong!
This property was the perfect family get-away. The hosts went above and beyond to make the place comfortable and thought of everything we would need for our stay. My wife and I were able to enjoy time with our three daughters and their spouses, and of course our 2 grandsons. The rooms were perfect for our needs. The property inside and out is well cared for and updated. Parking was not an issue for our bigger group and the location on the lake was unbeatable. We will be back!
Beautiful setting overlooking the bluff!
The Grapes are perfect hosts. A great deal of thought has gone into this vacation rental. We were quite comfortable and felt at home. The setting is just gorgeous, a flat landscape stretching down to a pebble beach. Facing eastward this property had sun all day long and showcases the most colorful sunsets.
Thank you for your kind review. We were so glad you enjoyed your stay. We would love to have you return.

Wonderful family getaway with great hosts
My family and I were looking for a quick weekend getaway on short notice and came across this property. From the start of the interaction Rick was extremely helpful and accommodating a short notice reservation
Once there, the property was perfect for my family. The highlights were:
1) Fully stocked kitchen and grill - we grilled steaks and chicken for dinner and cooked sides on the stove just like we were at home
3) Gas fire pit where we were able to hang out on the back dock and enjoy the lake view
4) Plenty of seating areas and bed
All in all, I'd love to find the opportunity to return and would highly recommend this property for groups!
Thank you for your kind review. We appreciate the good care you took of Its a Grape Life. We would love to have your retturn.
