Amazing Lakefront Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing vacation getaway for a group of 9 adults. One of the best things about this house is the location - it's right on the lake and has a large beautiful yard to BBQ and play outdoor games. The screened in porch was so great for sipping morning coffee and enjoying the view. Kathy was a fantastic host!! So accommodating and easy to get in touch with. I'd rent this house again in a heartbeat!!

A quaint cottage on the lake.

  • 1 of 5

The interior was very clean was first impression but after that things go downhill, quickly. It was a chilly weekend and we had a non functional fireplace which had been advertised. The mattresses were uncomfortable. The house , very noisy walking around upstairs. And the living room had only a couch and loveseat which were old, saggy and a challenge to get out of. There was no comfortable seating except on the screen in porch, in which we could not use because of the weather. Not worth the stay.

Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend on Keuka Lake. The house was exactly as described and worked perfect for our group. The property was even better than described - a double lot with tons of frontage on the lake. Outside felt secluded, with the house separating the property from the neighbors and a small creek on the other side. The inlet to the lake creates a small pool with a peninsula jutting out to a point on the lake. The firepit is on this point, you have unobstructed views both up and down the lake.

There are two docks and a couple boat lifts available, which worked well for our boat. The at-grade entrance to the lake was great for little kids. Penn Yan is only a few miles north, easy to get any supplies needed or to grab a bite to eat. There are a few waterfront bars/restaurants about eight miles south, great to grab a drink sitting lakeside. The side yard was a great place for lawn games as well.

The hosts were wonderful and made everything easy. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the lake house!

We loved it so much we want to return next year.

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at six places in the Finger Lakes. We've hoped to find a place we love so much that we'd want to return to the same place. We found that place this year. Kathleen and Warren were great. It was very spacious. The sun porch was great. We really enjoyed the lake front and the flat yard approaching the lake. If you like to fish, this would be the ideal spot. I recommend staying here.

Second visit to this amazing cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at this cottage two years ago and it is still the jewel we stayed at the first time. It is impeccably clean with a well stocked kitchen. The house has a warm cottagey feel, with a combination of modern conveniences and antiques. Kathy and Ward are extremely friendly and very gracious. Initially I did not want the wi-fi connected so the grandkids would be disconnected!! When I realized I needed to do some work while away Ward got me hooked back up. The water was a little cool when we were there, but that did not stop the kids from kayaking or using the paddle boat. The 8 year old didn't mind it at all to swim. Fishing was fun right off of the docks. The biggest feature we would promote is the large level lot it is on. No climbing steps to get to the house or the lake. We would definitely go back again.

Great cottage, fully equipped just bring your food and beverages.

  • 5 of 5

Kathy and Warren are great hosts and make sure you have everything you need. The cottage is truly a cottage and is neat, clean and nicely decorated. However the true gen here is the property. 100' plus of lake front plus lots of land for the "kids" to play. Would highly recommend a stay at this cottage.
