Renovated and tastefully decorated original West Lake Road cottage with private lake frontage directly across the road from the cottage. Clean and well-appointed in classic cottage style. The main floor has two bedrooms that share a full bath. Twin beds in one room and a double in the other. Upstairs is one spacious bedroom with a king bed and second bathroom. The kitchen includes an eat-in nook and is modern with gas stove and all necessities. Enjoy lake views from most rooms in the house. There is convenient parking for three cars. In the morning, watch the day break with a cup of coffee from the sun room.
In the summer, enjoy the lake front. Moor your boat and use the dingy and dock for access. Relax on the grassy waterfront. Bring your bike or walking shoes for a morning walk along the lake. Watch the boats go by and enjoy a view of the yacht club races. Relax in the back yard in the shade of the silver maple. Great location close to downtown Canandaigua--Sonnenberg Gardens, CMAC concerts, the Culinary Wine Institute, restaurants, shopping, festivals, and Wegmans are all just an easy 5-10 minutes away.
Anytime of the year, enjoy touring the beautiful Finger Lakes region during the day and return to 'the lake' in the evenings. Excursions to Rochester are easy, too, from our location--remember the festivals and other cultural attractions there.
Don't forget winter activities! Take advantage of the off-season rates and plan a ski week or weekend at Bristol Mountain Ski Resort. It's a quick 20 minute drive away. Cummings Nature Center and Mendon Ponds offer wonderful winter activities--rent snow shoes or go cross-country skiing on the well-groomed trails there or just enjoy a quiet winter hike.

Canandaigua Lake is a popular recreation lake in the western Finger Lakes region of New York. The cottage is convenient to the city of Canandaigua. Make Rose Cottage your home base as you enjoy all that the Finger Lakes have to offer.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Martha and Hugh moved to Canandaigua from the Washington DC area 10 years ago and now enjoy all the lake and the region have to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Canandaigua: We bought Rose Cottage as soon as it went on the market. We liked the house and the challenge of the restoration project. As a vacation rental it is convenient to manage because it is next door to where we live year round. (We are very respectful of guest privacy.) We're here if you need anything during your stay.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Private grassy lake frontage on which to relax. Convenient location two miles from the city with easy access to dining, shopping, all the Finger Lakes have to offer. There is a mooring for your boat and dock for boat access. Launch your boat at the state marina nearby. Comfortably decorated cottage with good spaces for visiting, playing games, and accommodations for sleeping. During winter months, come to ski at Bristol Mountain, only 20 minutes away.
