Summer home situated on the southwest shore of Canandaigua Lake in a private cove.
Sit on the spacious screened in porch and gaze to the green carved hills and valleys surrounding this beautiful lake. Much like being in Switzerland!
Our home sits on one of the most peaceful and secluded places existing on the lake.
Grassy, level frontage leads you to a permanent dock - enjoy the sunshine..there is ample seating for all. The cove and sparkling water is the perfect location for windsurfing, canoeing (provided), tubing, kayaking or fishing.
The cove is a favorite for seasoned fisherman. There are two moorings in front of the home, a boat can also be tied to the dock.

About the owner: Susan Harris and her three youngest nieces -- who also love the Harris cottage! Susan is one of three siblings (plus Bob Harris & Molly White) who own the cottage. She is a retired university professor and physical therapist who lives in Vancouver, BC but enjoys spending time during the 'shoulder months' (early June or late September) at the cottage -- providing it's not rented then!
Why the Owner Chose Canandaigua: Rustic family cottage built by our grandfather in the 1930s and then 'doubled' in size by our father in the 1960s. 110 feet of lake front with a large dock. Perfect for swimming, canoeing, sailing, fishing, etc. Beautiful, large, clean blue lake (17 miles long and 1 mile wide at our end).
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Campfires with s'mores, sunning in the Adirondack chair on the dock, lots of long leisurely swims in the beautiful lake, listening to the crickets at night and watching the fireflies dart about. A quintessential cottage experience! Adults, children, and dogs all love it here. :)
