The apartment is located in Penn Yan, in Yates County. It is on the east side of Keuka Lake, approximately 5 miles south of Penn Yan and 16 miles north of Hammondsport. The area has a large Mennonite population and offers opportunities to purchase Mennonite crafts and produce. Yates County is home to nearly 40 wineries and an increasing number of craft breweries. Penn Yan's community events include the Keuka Arts Festival (June 14 & 15, 2014), Cruisin' Night (June 13, 2014), Sidewalk Sale the last Saturday in July, and StarShine (December 5, 2014). The Village of Dundee, approximately 8 miles south of the apartment, holds an annual Dundee Day the Saturday after July 4th, which includes miles of garage sales, and an annual Dundee Scottish Festival (September 6, 2014). Yates County was home to Native Americans before white settlers arrived in the 1700's and the area contains many historic sites. Keuka Lake and the surrounding Finger Lakes are a primary attraction and the area enjoys a well deserved reputation as a summer destination.
