About Eva Rayburn

Our family purchased this property in the summer of 2013 to use as an escape but also to share with others. Having grown up in the are we look forward to sharing our local knowledge with visitors!

Eva Rayburn purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Eva Rayburn chose Canandaigua Lake

The property is separated by about 100 feet from the lake on 1.5 acres. We have combined a cottage feel, with crisp furnishings, a tennis court, an overlook firepit and close proximity to many activities. A unique combination for those looking for an escape but not off the beaten path. This is an ideal property for us and our guests to enjoy year round.

What makes this cottage unique

Our family absolutely loves the views, the quiet and the activities available. The view from the fire pit is absolutely amazing, nothing like sunrise or sunset from up there. The 1.5 acre lot is great for outdoor dining or taking a short stroll. The tennis/basketball court allows for some space for the kids or adults to play (we have sporting goods provided).

peaceful and welcoming

Our stay at the cottage was perfect! The location was exactly where we wanted to be, the house was clean, warm and welcoming, and the view was phenomenal!

The home owners were very approachable and helpful, making it easy to walk in and relax in the temporary home away from home. We would definitely recommend the cottage to any potential future renters.

Beautiful, pristine property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, toddler, and I absolutely loved our stay here! There was so much to do close by, and the property itself was just immaculate. The owners thought of everything to make their guests comfortable- and we especially loved the fire pit and tennis court! We will definitely stay here again next year!

Great location and a very welcoming and comfortable lake home

  • 5 of 5

We spent eight lovely nights at Lake Hill Cottage. I wil hasten to say that "cottage" is not sufficient to describe this property. It is a very nice lake house in every sense of the word. Play tennis, basketball, or relax by the fire pit. All with great views of the Lake.

Eva is wonderful !! This was our first experience with VRBO. She made it so easy and was exceptional in getting back with answers to our questions.

We highly recommend this property to any and all.

Nice place, would stay there again

  • 4 of 5

My family had a good stay here and would stay there again. The only real annoyance was that the internet was slow and flaky.

Owner's Response: Thank you Davis! We use satellite internet as of now due to the slightly rural location of our home, hoping for ATT to make it down our way for a more consistent experience!

Nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

The location of the house is fairly close to town but just far enough from town to be very quiet and somewhat peaceful. We found the house to be clean with a convenient, well equipped and tidy kitchen. Although we didn't cook large meals it was nice to have our own coffee in the morning along with the breakfast of our choosing with groceries we bought at Wegmans. The living area is nice & spacious with a convenient bathroom downstairs. The upstairs area is nice with decent sized bedrooms and a nice bathroom. The view of the lake from inside the house and outside are great. The fire pit is a great feature. If we had children of the age that required entertaining there was plenty for them to do inside and out.

Up[dated cottage, had everything we needed. Floors needed sweeping, cobwebs in wall corners, found some dirty dishes in cupboards. Lights bulb missing in walk-in closet. Since we paid for cleaning, expected a clean dwelling.

Owner's Response: We were surprised by the comments on cleanliness as we have never had an issue prior and all previous guests have commented positively on how well our house is kept. Additionally, we were in contact with the guest during their stay and these issues were not brought up. We called the guest to resolve and found out the issue arose when they rearranged the living room furniture and found a cobweb in an unused corner. Though we have never had a guest move our furniture we will remedy the situation in the future by ensuring each corner is clean. The guest also explained that the dish cleanliness was not up to their standards (we assume water spots and dishwasher residue as we have now inspected the dishes and this is what we found and have since remedied). A lightbulb does need to be replaced in the master closet, thank you for bringing that to our attention. We strive to meet the highest standards and will continue to do so with their input in mind. This is our home first and foremost, any negative guest experience we will certainly take to heart.
