About the property

8 Person, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Modern Lakefront Home

Keuka Charm II. . .

Located in the Heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country, also known as the Cradle of Aviation and “Crooked Lake” by the locals. This lakefront home is perfect for family vacations and other special occasions. The lakefront views from every room are spectacular! Plenty of room for relaxing, both inside and out.

However you want to describe the region, guests will soon realize why the Lady of the Lakes has become the top destination in the Finger Lakes Region.

When you pare together the breathtaking scenery and delightful locale offered by the lake itself with our beautiful home you are in for an unforgettable getaway!

Situated on the WESTSIDE of KEUKA LAKE between Branchport & Hammondsport, this contemporary custom lakeside home is right on the water’s edge and boasts breathtaking views of the lake & bluff from every room any season, enhanced by a deck on the west side of the house, a lakeside Patio, and a HUGE, 1200 sqft dock, (great for sunning, fishing OR mooring your boat!). Virtually everything in this comfortable home is new. Enjoy a beautiful 100+ feet of shale gradual entry beach all situated in a great protected cove, it is perfect for kids and adults alike.

We have taken great care to make this lovely lake home into a modern delight and we think you will agree that this is one of the finest rentals on all of Keuka.

The bedroom on the lake level of the house includes a Queen size bed, with a bathroom next door, equipped with a washer and dryer and shower. The large, multi-bed 2nd floor bedroom includes custom-made QUEEN SIZE bunk beds, plus an additional QUEEN SIZE bed. Sleeping accommodations for 8 people, total! The second floor is rounded out with another bathroom & shower, as well as a built-in wooden desk & chair, all overlooking the lake & bluff!

The “Cooks” kitchen is complete with beautiful Cherry cabinetry, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, and will allow you to cook up the “catch” of the day or just allow for some great appetizers to be prepared. Enjoy your meal on the deck, the patio, or the HUGE DOCK, which will definitely allow you to unwind and forget about your worries. If you don’t feel like being in the kitchen take a short two minute walk to Lakeside Restaurant and allow them to do the cooking for you.

This home includes wood & tile flooring and hand-crafted wood trim on the windows and doorways, and is rounded out nicely with CENTRAL AIR conditioning. The family room allows you to relax while looking out over the beautiful scenes of Keuka.

Perhaps you would enjoy games along the shore, and at night you can relax and tell some stories while gazing at the stars. Go fishing from the huge dock or take the kayak out for a peaceful ride, there is no bad way to enjoy Keuka!

Enjoy the moonlight dancing across the water and perks of lakeside OR venture out to renowned Finger Lakes winery trails, many new microbreweries, quaint villages, restaurants, (by car or boat), marinas, tourist attractions & conveniences.

Wine making and aviation has shaped the region and endless vistas unfold from the vine clad hills. Over a dozen award winning wineries and micro- breweries offer samplings of their handcrafted wines and champagnes, & beers. Venture out on your own, following the Keuka Lake Wine Trail, or book a wine tour and leave the driving to a pro so you can enjoy the sampling and the views.

From casual to gourmet, hotdogs to upscale cuisine, dining by land or water, you will not have to travel far to find a memorable meal. As a matter of fact, you are within a two minute walk to the Lakeside Restaurant and a fully stocked marina.

Quaint shops in the Village of Hammondsport offer souvenirs, gifts, and fine arts. Take the road less traveled and go shopping for that perfect antique.

About 'Rick'

A semi-retired couple, with two grown children who enjoy the lake as much as we do -- and Rambo, the family dog! We'd love to have you come see us, and take advantage of this amazing spot on the lake.

Why 'Rick' chose Keuka Lake

Keuka Lake has always been a special place for us. Having spent years coming to visit the lake, we decided we needed to make a permanent place for us. This spot in particular has an amazing feel with the cove and beach entry that just has a way of relaxing all who spend time there.

What makes this house unique

It's a unique spot in that you can enjoy the beautiful lakeside view of the bluff, while enjoying the comfortable and totally modern amenities of the house, including the large, 1200 sqft dock, the Patio, and the additional walk-out Deck just off the front door. Visitors can get away from it all, but be close enough to enjoy the local antique shops, wineries and restaurants, if desired.

Wonderful Holiday Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful lake house, with a great view! Wonderful location with lots to see and do out and about, but also a great place to relax outside with a book and a view. Great amenities, wonderful owners are the makings of a great mini vacation away, even with a few bouts of rain showers!

The house is perfectly situated on the lake and is kept immaculate. The layout is spacious and the kitchen comes with everything you could possible think of. The owners were helpful in giving suggestions to nearby eateries, breweries and wineries. Great place to relax!

Perfect lakefront rental!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely immaculate with a beautiful view from all 3 floors. Owners went over and above to ensure we had everything from wifi, a kayak to restaurant recommendations. I would highly recommend this house- comfortable sleeping arrangements and a perfect location for the best of Keuka, Hammondsport and close enough to Seneca!

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is clean and beautiful with great amenities and beautiful views. The house sits directly on Keuka and even with a somewhat rainy weekend we still enjoyed the beautiful lake views from practically anywhere you stand in the house, and the huge deck when we could. There is no shortage of things to do nearby. We went to a festival at a nearby winery the one day and visited Hammondsport and Steuben Brewery the following day. There is a restaurant an easy few minutes walk away or everything you need at the house to make a meal there. The hosts live next door and are there to answer any questions. We had a wonderful weekend with family.

Perfect lake house with massive deck!

  • 5 of 5

We just had the pleasure of staying at Rick & Diane's lake house while we were in the area for my best friend's wedding at Heron Hill Winery. The house fit our group of 7 perfectly and we were extremely impressed with how smoothly and professionally everything was handled. Rick gave us a nice tour of the property when we arrived which was extremely helpful.

The dock off the back was HUGE. Seriously, ginormous! Not to mention the extremely oversized picnic table that could fit a small army. They had plenty of sturdy, wooden Adirondack chairs on the dock which were perfect to hang out and enjoy the view from.

The house is conveniently located on the western side of Keuka Lake, which seems to be where more of the action was. It's also within walking distance of the Lakeside Restaurant and Tavern.

Our only regret was that we wished we had more time here! As part of the bridal party for the wedding, I stayed at a few different houses throughout the week and this was by far the most affordable and the best space.

We look forward to visiting again!

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time as a group of 4 couples staying the weekend at this home! It's a great location along the lake and we kept picturing different times of the year it would be perfect for a getaway! We'd love to go back and bring our kids next time. Super clean, great huge deck and very friendly owners!
