"Modern and charming describe this house. Beautifully decorated! The beds were very comfortable (I didn't once yearn for my own bed). The living room furniture was very comfortable as well. Nothing in this home made it feel that it was a "rental". The view of the lake was inspiring and the deck was an invitation to relax and "let the world go by". On a practical note, there are several flights of steps leading from the house to the road, so I would not recommend this property to individuals with physical limitations. Thank you Dan and & Donna for sharing you home with our family."

"Wonderful stay in Hammondsport. Very similar to the town I live in. House was well stocked and clean with just about anything you would need. Nice appliances and a great deck. Quiet neighbors. Never really cooked much. Restaurants had great food but be prepared to wait. Union Grill was by far the best. Get a passport to visit the wineries on Kueka Lake. Some tastings are free but between the ones that do charge and the coupons, the price is well worth it! Seneca Lake within 1/2 hr. drive. Much available for activities or do nothing! Wineries are abundant. Worth a visit."

"This is our 6th year renting a home on Keuka Lake and our search for the "perfect spot" is over! Southern Sails Cottage is everything and more that we were hoping for. We were 8 adults and 5 children ranging in age from 3 months to 10 years old. Every family unit had a private bedroom and bath which is virtually unheard of. My personal family of 5 had the very private walkout basement area. We were able to spread out, every child had their own cozy sleeping quarters and Mom and Dad were happy with the King bed! Sometimes safety for toddlers is an issue but not here. There were gates and the deck was an oasis for the little ones while food was prepared and everyone relaxed. The beach area is wonderful as it is quite shallow which allowed for more relaxed play in and around the water and dock. We didn't want for anything inside the house. The kitchen is magnificent and much larger than it appears in the photos. We ate our meals outside which enabled the fun breakfast nook to be taken over with puzzles and arts and crafts. We didn't need to use the office but it would definitely be a bonus for someone who needed to work while on vacation (sorry if you have to do this!). The kids and adults all utilized the awesome kayaks and canoes and for the first time we felt very safe letting the big kids explore a little further than usual due to the friendly neighbors and the ease to get in and out of the water. Our only challenge was parking our pontoon boat as there was limited tie up space but we made it work with just a little extra effort. The proximity to Hammondsport, The Switz, The Olney Store, and several produce stands was perfect. The communication with the owner was perfect and we felt very prepared walking into the home. Cannot say enough how grateful we are to have had the chance to rent this home!"

"We were very pleased with our rental experience. Being directly on the water was the best part. We were in and out of lake many times during our stay to cool off. The closeness to the best Keuka Lake wineries and restaurants was ideal! Ed and Delia were wonderful hosts and we would definitely return!"
