Beautiful Keuka Lake is the most picturesque of New York's pristine Finger Lakes, in the heart of the wine country. It is 20 miles long, boasts about 60 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of 186 feet. It has become the top destination in the Finger Lakes Region.
Located within a short walking distance to Keuka Lake State Park (with boat launch and many hiking trails) and Esperanza Mansion, our charmingly rustic, very clean cottage is situated on a quiet, private road with spectacular views overlooking the northwest branch of the lake. This cottage is perfect for a couple or a small family.
Sit back, unwind and enjoy the gorgeous romantic sunsets on 50 feet of lake frontage next to your crackling beach bonfire. Swim, fish, or take the rowboat out for a leisurely ride. Or simply take in the beautiful scenery from the comfortable patio chairs on the partially covered deck after a relaxing day of wine tasting.
The cottage is 7 miles from Penn Yan, 1 mile from Basin Park Marina (boat rentals, etc.), less than half a mile to fine dining at Esperanza Mansion, a very short stroll to Keuka Lake State Park, close to the famous Keuka Lake Wine Trail for tastings and tours, hiking, golfing, gift shops, antiques, many restaurants and much more.

Great to experience the lake and surrounding areas this time of year.
The cottage is perfect, quite a change from the "trapper's cabin" remembered from my youth spent just two doors down Esperanza from 1951-1960. Family moved out west. Forty year anniversary surprise trip from my wife. I have not been back since 1963, and she had never been further East than Montana. All my stories were validated and connections made with relatives and family friends.
Thank you so much for this, it was perfect.

We had a fabulous stay on Esperanza Drive. Check in , check out and everything in between was great. The cottage was just right for my husband and me. It was clean and well stocked. We opted to rent the linen and it was well worth it. The view was gorgeous and lake access was easy. We kayaked, fished, and went swimming...........the weather was perfect for us all week. Everyone we encountered on the lake was friendly and informative. Grocery stores and restaurants were close. Watkins Glen, The Curtis Museum, and the Corning Glass Museum were easy day trips. We rented a Pontoon boat for a day that added to our fun. We can't wait to return!

Well stocked , clean and comfortable cabin with beautiful views. A short walk to Keuka Park.
From walking into the cottage there was a note congratulating us on our wedding and there was a bottle of wine and crackers with cheese in the fridge. The place was amazing and so peaceful. Sitting out at night on the deck with the torches going to having a fire right on the water. We used there kayaks and had a great time,, we hope to stay there again next year.
This is a wonderful rental. The location is beautiful, and the cottage is clean, quiet, very well-equipped, and nicely decorated. Owners are very responsive and helpful. We've rented more than a dozen other places through VRBO/HomeAway, and this one is tops!
The cottage is just perfect. The location, the neighbors and the cottage are just lovely. My husband cycled every morning, we both kyaked and then went to a few wineries for lunch and wine. Every day ended on the shore or pier enjoying the view before dinner on the deck! The cottage is wonderful and we can not wait to return. You will not regret your stay, we will cherish ours. Thank you for affording us this luxury!!
Even when it rains your covered on half the deck. You can sit by the water or on the deck. There's plenty to do in the area but the temperature is always cooler by the lake. As you can tell we loved it and will be back. Owners and neighbors are very friendly. A slice of paradise!
