Also known as 'Tranquility on the Bluff'. The home received its' name, because it is located in an area of Yates County, known as Bluff Point. Bluff Point is the peninsula what separates the East and West branches of Keuka Lake. Long ago the shores of Bluff Point were surrounded with vineyards and dotted with steamboat landings to ferry people and agricultural products to the three towns on Keuka Lake. Over time the vineyards were abandoned and were gradually replaced with campsites, seasonal cottages and year round homes.

The deck is furnished with two, five foot by five foot square glass top tables and chairs, small sofa style love set and two matching chairs and foot rests, and a two person swing bench. The jetted hot tub/spa is also on the deck. The deck is surrounded by a fenced in railing with latch-able gates. The deck faces the lake and is fantastic for dining, relaxing, and enjoying the breath-taking Keuka Lake sunsets.
