Penn Yan house description

This two-bedroom house is a spacious 1900 sq ft on 64 ft of relaxing, private lakefront. It has the added benefit of being located just a mile from the conveniences of the town of Penn Yan. As you enter the house from the multi-car parking area, you find the roomy second floor den. It’s a great place to just hang out, watch movies, play games, etc. It also has room to sleep four between a queen futon and a two-twin trundle bed. Beyond the den are the two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the other with two twins). Both bedrooms overlook the lake through a shared enclosed porch.

Take either the front or back staircase to the first level and the kitchen, bathroom and living room. The large eat-in kitchen has brand new stainless appliances (range/oven, fridge and microwave). The full bath has a charming claw foot tub converted to a shower for your convenience. The living room looks over the lake through another enclosed porch, which has a view from three sides. An open-air side deck also overlooks the lake.

The best part is the beauty and charm of the lake itself. From the comfort of the house you can enjoy the gorgeous views, the sound of the waves on the shore, the amazing sunsets, and the brilliant stars. Just a few steps out the door you can lounge in an Adirondack chair with your beverage of choice, float on a raft, fish from the dock, or go for a swim.

Other attractions in the area: wine tours, dining, shopping, golf, hiking, waterfalls, Watkins Glen (camping and Nascar races), Corning Museum of Glass, Cornell University, The Windmill Farm and Craft Market.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We the owners, Dan and Kathy, come from different backgrounds and different parts of the country. Dan is from Kansas and Kathy is from Long Island. We crossed paths in college in the Finger Lakes Region and fell in love with each other and the area. We have been married for 37 years and have three grown daughters.

                      Why the Owner Chose Penn Yan:
                      As mentioned above we have strong connections with the area. We have vacationed with friends at Keuka Lake for many years and have always had a fun and relaxing time. We think you will too!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our house is located on the desirable East side of the lake and is close to the conveniences of Penn Yan. Compared to many other Keuka Lake properties we have minimal steps involved as you navigate from the parking area to the house and to the lakefront. Also, there are so many places to visit in our immediate area. Visit the web sites marked on our map to help plan your Keuka Lake vacation.
