Enjoy lake living at its best in our lovely 2-bedroom cottage located on the eastern shores of beautiful Keuka Lake, in the Finger Lakes region of New York State.

Whether you want to relax in one of our Adirondack chairs with a good book and a glass of local wine, or take a Sunfish out on the lake, we are confident that our 'It Shore Is Nice' cottage will provide you with a most enjoyable and memorable vacation experience.

Our beautiful lakefront property sleeps four comfortably with an extra futon; and provides all the amenities to make your stay comfortable, in your home away from home.

Located in a summertime resort area, you will find a wide variety of local activities and attractions for all members of the family. Keuka Lake is known for its wine trail, which includes more than a dozen award-winning wineries. Quaint shops in the village of Penn Yan and Hammondsport offer souvenirs, gifts and fine art.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Kelly and Ed Gilligan have owned this lovely cottage on Keuka Lake since 2005. The exterior and interior of this home has been completely renovated and you will find subtle hints throughout reminding you of what your vacation is all about - relaxing and having fun! Please visit our complete website at 'itshoreisnice' for further information and photos.

                      Why the Owner Chose Barrington:
                      In 2009, the Finger Lakes region was named the number one lakeside retreat in the world by the editors of Shermans Travel, beating out better known resort areas such as Lago di Como (Italy), Lake Mead (USA) and Lake Como (USA.) The editors also cited Keuka and Seneca Lakes as being “widely-regarded as the most beautiful of the Finger Lakes and well equipped for tourists and recreational activities.” See article: Top Ten Lakeside Retreats - Cool off this summer at lakeside retreats around the globe by ShermansTravel Editorial Staff

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Here are our top 10 things that we enjoy doing when we visit Keuka Lake. 1. Rent a boat or take a boat ride to the Switzerland Inn to have lunch on the porch and enjoy the great view of the Bluff! 2. Boat down to Hammondsport. Dock the boat and head into town for some shopping and an ice cream at the Park Inn! 3. Drive just north of Penn Yan on Sunday morning at 9:30 and watch all the horse-drawn Mennonite buggies going to church. 4. Have a wonderful dinner at the Village Tavern or the Union Block Bistro in Hammondsport. 5. Visit the many fine wineries on Keuka lake and take in the stunning views! 6. Have a cocktail on the patio at sunset at the Esperanza Mansion. 7. Go shopping in Penn Yan. Our favorite store is Longs Cards & Books. 8. Go to the Hayes Auction Barn for the weekly Saturday night auction at 6:00pm. Great finds include beautiful antiques to everything under the kitchen sink! 9. Order the fried chicken dinner at the Seneca Farms in Penn Yan. 10. Have a bottle of wine in the middle of the lake at sunset! 11. Ok, so there are more than 10… Visit the Windmill Farm and Craft Market on Saturday mornings. A great place to get breakfast or lunch!
