The property is deep, sitting well off the main road, perfect for peace and quiet or playing in the spacious yard. The year-round nature of the home makes it ideal for all seasons...don't miss Fall Foliage in the Finger Lakes!!! Inside you'll find personal touches and comfortable appointments, not the sterile atmosphere of Rental Agency properties. The full kitchen is bright and cheery with plenty of counter space.

Upstairs there are 2 full bedrooms(1 Queen bed, 2 Twins) with a sitting room(complete with game and puzzle library) and full-bath (shower). There is a spacious Master Bedroom with full-bath (shower/tub) on the south side. A 3rd full bath (shower) with laundry room is located off the living room. Also off the living room is a fabulous sun room with dining table overlooking the lake and waterfront, In the warmer weather relax on the deck which also overlooks the lake. The views are stunning, especially at sunset. For water activity, the staircase leads to some of the finest lakefront available on Keuka Lake. The natural pebble beach and gradual entry swimming area are ideal for families with children. Activities in the area are abundant for all seasons. If you like wine-tasting, you'll have close to 100 wineries to choose from between the Keuka Lake and Seneca Lake Wine Trails. There is even a winery only a quarter-mile walk from the house!More

Interaction with guestsWe live in Penn Yan now, so we are accessible if needed, but as much as we’d like to meet you, we respect your vacation time and privacy. We may drop in if something has to be fixed or the lawn needs mowing, but otherwise, we’ll try to remain “off-scene”. Enjoy!

Thank you Lori for sharing your warm and cozy home! We had a wonderful weekend sharing great memories and catching up! The cottage was warm and perfect for the seven of us, we had everything we needed! The lake view was beautiful and we had a little fire on the beach. We think this will be a yearly get away for us!

About the neighbourhood
We are in a perfect location for a vacation on the water. We are located only 3 miles outside of Penn Yan, so there is easy access to groceries, restaurants, shopping, etc. For wine lovers, we have a wonderful winery, Keuka Springs, only 1/4 mile north of our property. It's an easy walk (in case you are wine tasting and don't want to drive!). We have a large back yard, set off the road far enough that kids can play without having to worry about balls going out into traffic. Our stone beach is nice for lounging, collecting tiny shells, or having a small campfire. Water depth is VERY gradual. Depending on the year and lake level, The water has never been more than about 5 feet deep at the end of our dock with extremely clear water.
