Our family home is located at the quieter end of Canandaigua lake and yet is only a 15 minute drive from the City of Canandaigua and from Naples. This allows a combination of relaxation and activity to suit each guest: Canandaigua offers Roseland Water park and Wakeboard centre as well as historic sites and the Finger Lakes Wine and Culinary Centre whilst Naples is at the heart of the Grape tourist scene. A short drive provides access to wineries around Canandaigua and also around neighboring Keuka and Seneca lakes to the east. The Bristol Mountain aerial adventure course is a short drive to the western side of Canandaigua Lake and further west is the white water rafting centre in Letchworth State Park.
The house is maintained to a high standard because it is our family vacation home. Therefore it is only available for rent for four weeks per year. A wraparound deck allows you to enjoy the views and to move in or out of the sun as the day progresses. The house comprises four large bedrooms and three bathrooms. One King and two Queen bedrooms are on the second floor with the open plan kitchen/dining/living area and two bathrooms (one en suite); the kids' room is on the first floor with one bunk bed set (sleeps two) and one twin bed set (can be combined to one Queen) plus the den/entertainment centre area and third bathroom. The plot is fairly level and allows access to main living area via two steps and access to the permanent dock and boats by one step.
The 100 ft of flat lakefront is the best around. The lake is shallow within the confines of the dock area which is attractive to kids but deepens quickly from the edge of the dock. Water depth reaches three feet approximately 15 feet from shore, dropping off quickly to six feet at front corner of permanent dock and 20 feet at furthest point of dock. Good fishing can be had off the dock (subject to licence) and stories of 'the one that got away' abound by the lakeside camp fire. Wood is provided at the beachfront for the camp fire.
The wraparound porch allows the sunset to be enjoyed whilst dining outside; also enabling activity at the lake front to be observed and the kids to be watched on the climbing frame at the rear of the house. 'Lake toys' include a kayak and various inflatables/noodles. Boat whips allow mooring of renter's boats.
The house is located at South Lake Road, about 0.75 miles south of Vine Valley. The house is located across the road from the lake but there are no houses between our house and the lake. There is approximately 100 feet x 45 feet of beach between the road and the lakefront, and it is partly grassed and partly shale beach. The narrow road is a dead-end road with approximately 30 houses beyond ours and is used by walkers, runners, and cyclists.

We live in the UK but have family in the area. An uncle spends the summer near the property, in Vine Valley, and provides direct interface with guests on check in/check out and to respond to any concerns during the stay.
