About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 8-12 Sleeps, 3 Story, Lots Of Glass For End To End

This brand new cottage was built in 2012 with the view of the lake in mind. Built with lots of glass on the lake side, and glass railings, you feel like you're floating on the water. Hardwood flooring, and a custom built bar in the lake room is great for entertaining. 3 bedrooms sleep six, lower lake level futon and an open loft for kids sleeps 2-4. Everything in this house is brand new. Gatherings in the Kitchen that flow into the living room is not uncommon.

About Jean Evans

After many years enjoying this lakefront property and raising four children we decide to go all out and rebuild. My Real Estate business is thriving so threr's not much time to relax. We thought it would be nice to share our bounty with others to enjoy, relax and be happy. It's year around so plan to enjoy NYS snowy winter ice fishing, skiing, sledding, Fall foliage or just staying warm and enjoying the views.

Jean Evans purchased this cottage in 1972

Why Jean Evans chose Geneseo

This property has been family owned for 36 years. We built completely new to be able to enjoy our limited time that we get to spend here. We have decided to share our enjoyment of the lake house with you. You cannot go wrong with this rental, as it is super comfortable and highly efficient.

The property was very nice and we would reccomend.

  • 4 of 5

We struggled to enter the property and needed to call the realty company to find an alternate way in. They promptly answered and told us how to get access the property with a hidden key. I would say the property comfortably slept 7 people and had plenty of linens and towels for the bathrooms. We had eight people with 2 pre-teens who used the loft but had to use 12-15 foot ladder to access it. I wouldn't recommend it for small children or adults.

The kitchen was very stocked with dishes and the refrigerator had available miscellaneous food condiments and dressings .

Although the home was tidy, if a professional cleaner was preparing the property they had not vacuumed carpeted rooms and we vacuumed the kitchen area as there was pet hair and minor crumbs or pebbles. That said we liked that it felt lived in.

The Weber grill was great for our steak dinner and plenty of pots and pans ,cooking utensils and dishes. The dishwasher was full of clean dishes and there were so many dishes we struggled to find room to put them all away. We rented the property to spend time at Letchworth State Park. If we rented again we would spend time on Conesus Lake As it was approximately an hour to The Glen Iris Inn where we were meeting friends for hiking and dinner . We spent both evenings out on the balcony and enjoyed the quiet surroundings.

The only parking was on the road for this property despite saying there were 3 parking spaces but we pulled off far enough from the shoulder to feel comfortable with that.

The shower on the middle floor is plumbed wrong and we didn't think there was hot water the first day and all used the lowest level shower. Eventually we figured it out.

All in all a great property. We would reccomend to others.

A nice house in many ways

  • 3 of 5

It's a nice new house, but is quite a bit smaller than the pictures suggest (not that the owners can be blamed for that). As for sleeping 12, the loft supposedly sleeps four, but the instructions in the house said that no one should use the loft. So what gives? We didn't need the space and were glad we didn't, because it was absolutely filthy up there. I also didn't like that food was left in the refrigerator and cabinets, with instructions to replace anything we used. Who wants to eat some stranger's leftover food? There was so much stuff in the kitchen drawers and cabinets that it was hard to fit our things in. The bedrooms are very small, and storage is limited.

Well cared for lake home with modern conveniences and outstanding views of Conesus lake. Easy to relax and enjoy the lake with family and friends. The owners are very accessible to deal with. Our second year vacationing in this home.

Great lake rental

  • 4 of 5

My family and I felt right at home at this rental and everyone enjoyed their stay. The house is beautifully updated, clean, well maintained, and was great for family meals and gatherings. The location is great as it is toward the north end of the lake so it was easy to get to stores and the airport. There is a winery and golf courses just a few minutes away. I'd recommend this property to anyone looking for a nice and convenient place to stay on Conesus Lake.
