  • The Perfect Multi-Family Home

    "For the past 5 years, my wife and our young kids, my sister's family and her young kids, and my parents rent a lake house annually at different lakes somewhere between my sister in NJ and us in East Aurora, NY. This is the 1 time a year that we spend a lot of quality time together and we chose Keuka Lake this year at Southern Sails. It was unanimously voted by the entire family as the best house and trip yet since we started. We comfortably fit all the adults and children throughout the house. Every bedroom has its own bathroom and the entire place is extremely clean and in beautiful shape, so you can tell the owners take extremely good care of it. It has a nice dock with lounge chairs, kayaks, both a gas and charcoal grill ready to go, firepit, and a bunch of outside seating. There is a very shallow, gradual depth into the water perfect for the kids to play in. The porch is beautiful and spacious connected to both the kitchen and a sunroom. Stainless steel newer appliances and even a separate wine fridge where we stocked all the wines for the trip. The closest town to Sothern Sails happens to be the best town on the lake in my opinion and a major factor in my selection process trying to narrow down where we wanted to stay. This place is equipped with anything that you need and will not dissapoint anyone who rents it. I am thankful we discovered it and will be coming back for sure."

  • Great location with lots of room

    "Very nice property; owner easy to work with. Close to Hammondsport a plus; stairs could be difficult for older guests. 2 newer docks made easy access for boat. Definitely would stay there again!"

  • Great vacation

    "This was an absolutely fantastic vacation, with a beautiful location on Keuka Lake; responsive but not intrusive nearby owners who responded to any minor problems we had; and a wonderful lakeside patio where one could read, relax, recall memories of earlier get-togethers, or just enjoy the beauty of the environment. Great restaurants nearby, vineyards with fun tastings, and just a relaxing, enjoyable week. Although one individual had minor mobility problems, she was able to do the stairs and encountered no problems. Would return again in a heartbeat."

  • Better than the pictures - this is a winner!

    "This was my family's first time at the Finger Lakes, and we enjoyed every moment of it, much of it thanks to this lovely home located in a charming little town of Hammondsport. Staying here, you don't feel like you're in a vacation home - you feel like you're visiting your well-heeled, tasteful relatives who've taken every measure to make sure your visit is comfortable - plush towels, high quality linens, even the carpet...they've really lovingly restored this cottage and they definitely did not go for the "economic" options. No futons or cheap coverlets hiding multitudes of sins on the couch here (which I've definitely experienced in other VRBO or airBnB homes). You'll love it. I actually think the house is better than the pictures, so let me try to describe it. This house is about 1400 square feet excluding the semi-finished basement (ask Dan to give you a tour, it's fantastic, he's SO well-organized), with two large bedrooms, one on the first floor and another one on the second floor. The first floor features a fantastic common area - upon entering through the side door, you have a spacious great room with comfy couches, a television, and a gorgeous open kitchen with a bar set upon two wine barrels. You'll come to appreciate this detail since they're used widely all over the finger lakes region to beautiful effect. The kitchen is brand new, with great appliances and every little bowl and utensil you could possibly want. Then, towards the front of the house (closer to the street), there's a sitting area/desk plus the bedroom and bathroom. Upstairs there is a lovely claw footed tub (but no shower curtains or shower head - we used it to give our 1-year old a bath every night and it worked great) and a full bathroom, plus a bedroom with its own television. There's also a full size laundry room. Note that there's no formal dining room, but we ate outside almost every night during our two-week stay on the deck, as it is fully equipped with tables and comfy chairs. Highly recommended! A quick note about the town...it's a lovely 7-minute walk to the "village square" where we made many happy walks every day. The Keuka Artisan Bakery has the BEST pastries, hands down, baked fresh on site every morning except for Tues/Wed, AND you must visit the library if you have children. One of the best library children's room I've ever seen and a beautiful library overall. Enjoy!"
