Penn Yan house description

Excellent beach, fabulous yard and a great house! You will love being here!

Spacious. Restful. Restorative. And an awful lot of fun!


Ask: How close is the neighbor?
Is the beach rocky? Seaweedy?
Are there any extra charges?
Baby fine shale?
How much land is the house on?
Are you on town sewer & water?
Can we use the boats? Which ones?
Can we bring extra people?
How far is the nearest town?

504 East Lake Road offers the discriminating renter so much more than just a cottage on the lake. The five acre property with over 100 feet of beach, level lawns, woods and a wonderful creek to hike, is a rare treat on Keuka Lake. It simply doesn’t exist anymore, except here at this address on the very desirable Lower East Lake Road on Hewitt's Point.

BEACH: Level and deep set, offering guests a chance to experience the most beautiful baby-fine shale in the Finger Lakes. The long dock provides space for a boat or two and has a set of stairs on the end of the dock to make it easy to get in and out of the lake. No stay would be complete without a soul-stirring bonfire to cook marshmallows over while you sip a cocktail in the beach cabana and watch the sun set into the folds of hills. (firewood provided). Horseshoes provided!

BOATS: You have the use of the rowboat, two-person kayak, sunfish (for experienced sailors) snorkeling equipment (adult sizes) and various beach toys for kids.

HOUSE: A year round home with three bedrooms, plus a loft and two full bathrooms…one with a bathtub/shower combo, one with a shower only. (plus public water and sewer). Our home is comfortably furnished with newer pieces mixed with antiques and an eclectic art collection. The beds are excellent! (two kings, one queen, one full). All linens provided and we have extra blankets and pillows.

GAMES: The antique armoire in the family room is home to a great collection of games and toys for all ages. In the upstairs loft, another toy chest with toys for the younger set awaits. The loft is ‘fenced in’ with white lattice to give it privacy and security, but also to let the little kids ‘spy’ on the adults while they play with their own toys. It’s a fun spot for them to feel separate and yet still be close.
Outside, lots of opportunities exist for badminton, volleyball, bocci, baseball, and even kick the can. (toys provided) Catch fireflies in a jar, or just lie on your back at night to see the clear view of the Milky Way. There is also a ZIP LINE to ‘fly’ from one tree to another (lightweights only!) This is to be used ONLY with adult supervision.

The kitchen is modern, nicely outfitted and home to a very large kitchen table which seats ten. Just outside on the porch, an outdoor dinning table awaits. A deep-set covered front porch turns into a wraparound porch from which you can view the lake and the yard leading to the woods. The porch has ample seating on wicker furniture out front and a long cushioned church bench on the side. Another deck with wicker seating is attached to the front bedroom. Private and relaxing.

We hope you’ll relax at 504 East Lake Road and make it your home during your stay. You, and your kids if you bring them, will love the water but also have a wonderful time exploring the woods and creek looking for frogs and salamanders. The lake...the lawn...the woods...the's all here. And it really does have a magical ability to restore you.

              The wineries are everywhere! And the views from most are just beautiful. The Finger Lakes Wine has been winning more and more awards in the last few years and their reputation is gaining a great deal of respect by noted wine enthusiasts. Rooster Hill is a 4 minute walk from the house. Amy & David would love to have you visit.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: We both grew up on Keuka Lake, attended Penn Yan Academy and moved onto the rest of the world for the next thirty years. We have always kept a home on the lake. Once you visit, you'll understand why! We both have a deep love and respect for the natural beauty that surrounds our home, the lake and the entire Finger Lakes Region. It is a very special piece of the planet.

              Why the Owner Chose Penn Yan:
              We love the Keuka Lake can be action packed and stimulating or quiet, private and restorative. You choose how you want to be here.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love being surrounded by nature. There is nothing quite as wonderful as waking up and seeing that magnificent lake greet you each morning. It changes every day. It's alive and organic and CLEAN! Summer's are so much fun swimming, skiing, sailing, kayaking, crusiing, dinning out, walking, biking, winery touring.... Then Fall arrives and takes your breath away. Warm water, cool nights and the most colorful palate imaginable everywhere you look. Fall harvest wine tours, dinners out, and long walks fill the weekends. It's all so beautiful it almost hurts. Winter is a cozy, quiet time to get out to enjoy the skiing and ice boating....or just snuggle up to a great book or a really wonderful movie by the fire. Spring springs! You can actually feel the earth start to heave a very deep breath and shed its quiet outer layer. The birds and buds pop, you dust off your bike and take as many rides as possible with a huge grin on your face. There simply is not a bad time of year here. It's all wonderful!
