Keuka Lake House Rental Photos and Description

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.

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 newly built 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 newly built charmer 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 a game of Horseshoes along the shore, and at night you can relax beside the gas fire pit and tell some stories or roast marshmallows. 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, 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 recently opened micro- breweries) offer samplings of their handcrafted wines and champagnes, & now 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.

There is always something happening at Keuka Lake. Scheduled events range from arts and crafts shows, wine and food extravaganzas to live music and aviation shows.

Once you stay here we think you will agree, this house is a ‘Charmer” . . .

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.

Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six adults, and a baby spent a wonderful 7days in this home, nestled right on Keuka Lake. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable....and the views!! All i can say is wow! The only thing better than the sounds of the water, the well equipped kitchen, soft leather furniture and the beauty of nature is the hospitality of our hosts--Rick and Diane. Short access to many wineries and the quaint, lovely town of Hammondsport, and fishing right from the private dock added to the great experience.

Thanks for a great week! We would definitely do it again.

Graduation Trip

  • 5 of 5

Spent three wonderful days on Keuka Lake. Had several recommendations for this area when planning a trip to Niagara Falls and Pennsylvania to attend a graduation. It did not disappoint. Although our weather was a bit chilly, we still enjoyed all the outdoors had to offer, except a dip in the lake. The cabin was perfect, very clean and up to date. It was one of few that fit our bill for multiple private bathrooms. The beds are comfy and kitchen has everything you might need. As we were on the road, the washer/dryer were very appreciated. The deck and dock are especially nice to just sit out and enjoy nature. Diane was very helpful prior to our trip, answering all our questions. She met us and showed us around the cabin and even filled us in on local places to try. We hit several of the breweries (Keuka, Steuben, and Finger Lakes) and Bully Hill and Pleasant Valley wineries - all excellent!!! The cabin is centrally located as we travelled to Pen Yan and Hammondsport easily. Would love to come back and spend more time exploring the area. Great place to day trip from.

Girls Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property as a getaway/bachelorette weekend. It was a beautiful, modern, and clean house. There was plenty of room for cooking, lounging, and sleeping arrangements. 4 Queen size beds were great and all we needed to bring was the linens. Comforter and pillows provided. The showers and bathrooms were perfect size, modern, and clean. The kitchen had all of the amenities needed. Utensils, dishes, cookware, Tupperware, wine glasses, coffee pot, stove, and even an outdoor grill.

The outside deck is huge for entertaining and water play. It was so peaceful to sit out there in the morning or evening and watch the sun rise and set over the lake.

We had a great time exploring the area. The house is in close proximity to a few vineyards and Keuka Brewing. Not to mention a few houses down (walking distance) from Lakeside Restaurant & Tavern. Delicious food and local brews on tap as well as a local Vineyard wine menu.

The couple were wonderful to rent from. So helpful and nice. A phone call away if we needed anything.

I have already recommended this property to a few people and couples. I am hoping to return this summer and/or next year.

Fall colors/motorcycle riding/wine tasting trip

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to find this place for our annual fall motorcycle trip, and combined it with a little wine tasting and fall foliage viewing. We had been to the Finger Lakes before but stayed on Lake Lamoka. This house on Keuka is fabulous! You couldn't ask for a better view of the lake. The dock was so big! It was great to sit out there and enjoy the sights and quietness of the lake, and there was a fire pit right by the lake to enjoy those cool fall nights. The kitchen was nicely stocked, the beds comfy and the washer and dryer and big bonus! If you're looking for a nice place on the lake, look no further. You're close to Hammondsport, numerous wineries and lots of other lakes and towns. There's a really good restaurant within walking distance...a big bonus! Our hosts (who have a house next door) were wonderful, and so informative on all that is local. If you're planning a trip to the Finger Lakes I'd highly recommend this place! Than you Diane and Rick for a lovely stay!

Family Renunion

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to rent again from this wonderful couple. The houses were absolutely beautiful and they were fully stocked with everything that one could ask to have. The entire family loved fishing and swimming off the dock. Our entire extended family would recommend this property that anyone that was looking to rent on Keuka Lake. We hope that our schedules allow to return again next year.

Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from this family for the past few years. The house it beautiful, immaculate with all the amenities your could ask for. Our kids loved fishing, boating, swimming (walk in from large beach area or jump off the dock), playing with all the water toys. We loved grilling and eating outside. The location is fabulous, minutes to many wineries and blueberry picking a few miles up the road. The view is spectacular! I would highly recommend this rental. Well maintained and appointed. We will be back next year for sure!
