Penn Yan cottage description
Whether you are looking for a relaxing view from either of the expansive decks while you read a good book or if you prefer a bit more action out on the water, this cozy cottage situated along the east-side Keuka lakefront just 5 miles south of Penn Yan will suit your vacation needs.
Want to get in a little exercise during your stay? The cottage is located on a quiet access road which is the perfect setting for a scenic bike ride, walk or jog.
The main floor of the cottage consists of an open dining/living room area with television, gas fireplace, sofa bed, full size futon, bar area with a beautiful view of the lake and a dining table that seats up to 6. Also on the main floor is a small, but fully equipped kitchen, 1 bedroom with a double bed, and a bathroom with shower. The lower level is the master, or family, suite with a queen sized bed, twin sized bunk beds, and nice sized bathroom with shower. Both levels have access to one of the outside decks.
The upper deck, off the main floor, has gorgeous views of the lake and beautiful sunsets. Plenty of lawn chairs, a picnic table, and a gas grill make this a great location to hang out at dinner time. This deck also gets great afternoon sun for those looking to bask in the rays.
The lower deck is covered, has sun shades, and also has plenty of seating with several lounge chairs and a patio set. Great for when you need to get out of the sun or rain or just looking for a peaceful place to enjoy your morning coffee.
The 65' of lake frontage is perfect for swimming, fishing off the dock, or heading out on the water in your boat. Steps from the seawall lead directly into the shallow water making it perfect for the kids (and adults!) to go swimming right in front of the house. A fire pit is also located along the seawall to roast marshmallows and enjoy the nighttime lights around the lake. Also provided are a paddle boat, canoe, life vests, and water toys.
Whether your vacation interests are activities on the lake or simply enjoying the lake-views and local charm, the amenities and location of this cottage will definitely accommodate your needs.

- In addition to the abundance of boating, water sports, and fishing that this lake supports, this cottage is located along the Keuka Lake Wine Trail and only about 20 minutes from the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. Wine lovers will enjoy all that the local wineries have to offer. Be sure to get a taste of the local charm here in this area also. Plenty of great restaurants, Seneca Farms homemade ice cream and the local farm market, The Windmill, are among the favorites....moreless

House is situated about 10' from the water's edge and very nice deck and dock right out the back door. There's even a deck off the second floor for an elevated view of the lake. And such a beautiful lake! Very quiet, parking for 2 vehicles directly in front. Terrain is hilly and as consequence, house is built into the hillside. Hence the house is actually below street level, which serves to make the experience all the more remote. House is an older property, which gives it charm. Very well maintained. TV's up and down, although just sitting on the deck is preferable. Enjoyed every minute of our stay!

Spacious, comfortable and clean. My wife and I fell under the spell of the cottage and the lake. Forgot about the T.V. and sat and watched the beautiful view. There was plenty to do in the area but we found that the longer we were there the more we just wanted to enjoy the cottage and the lake. It was the most relaxing spiritual, mental and physical vacation we ever had. The ducks, herons, kingfishers and fish that hung around with us were a bonus. There really was no reason to leave the cottage except if you wanted something to eat and of course the wine selections were great too. Twenty minute drive to Watkins Glen State Park with 19 beautiful Waterfalls along the Gorge Trail. Can't wait to get back and enjoy another week here.

Slept 8 people no problem. 2 bathrooms worked out great. Made great use of the paddle boat and canoe during the day and firepit at night. Also, water was really clean. I have a 2 year old son and though there is not a lot of yard space we had no problem keeping him safe.

It's a fantastic family vacation experience. Again, cottage is very clean and cozy. Kitchen is fully equipped. Owner prepares a user friendly manual on the table and also provides some useful information. You may add up a little piece of useful information that live bait can be found at gas station in town. By using it, we caught the fish from the deck. Kids were crazy about it.

Our family of six had a great stay at this cabin. Clean, comfortable, great views, lovely decks for sunbathing. Close to town with fun things to do close-by. We enjoyed the craft market, a hike, state park and canoeing. Recommend this cottage to others wanting a great lakefront rental.

Owner response: Thank you! Clean, comfortable and fun definitely makes for a good vacation or getaway.
Just returned from a wonderful weekend away at this property. The place is absolutely lovely! Everything was so neat and well done. The kitchen is very well equipped. Both the living and sleeping areas were terrific and quite comfortable. The lake is absolutely gorgeous, and the views from both of the decks are breathtaking. It is a very short trip to many of the wonderful vineyards in the area, and a short drive to some really fantastic dining as well. The owner was very helpful through the entire rental process and provided a great bit of information that we found useful during our stay as well. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable, and fun place to stay!
