The home is located Just 1/2 a mile from Branchport and the Keuka Lake Wine Trail, and 13 miles from the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. Keuka Lake State Park is right accross the lake from the home. Great for walking or jogging on beautiful wooded trails. In the summer there is a lifeguard on duty in a protected swimming area for the little ones. Also there are more waterside restaurants on Keuka Lake than any of the finger lakes. A short drive, or boat ride has you dining at Lakeside Restaurant.

About Al & Leslie Troisi

We are both Financial Advisors and have many great clients in the Finger Lakes region. We have been coming to Keuka Lake for over 25 years. In 2007 we made Keuka Lake our home by building a house overlooking the lake. As a matter of fact, our home is right accross the lake from Pleasant Bay Retreat up on the hill. It is also a VRBO home and is enjoyed by many as a weding and event center. We purchased Pleasant Bay Retreat in 2016 to allow others to enjoy the Lake as much as we do. On a summer day you can find us out on our boat visiting one of the many restaurants, having a local wine, or local microbrew, while listening to a great local band right on the water.

Al & Leslie Troisi purchased this house in 2016

Why Al & Leslie Troisi chose Branchport

We were familiar with this home since it was built by friends of ours. When we found out this home was on the market we knew it would make a great rental property due to it's charm and proximity to all things in the Finger Lakes. It was close to our home and is conveniently located between two great marinas, with a boat launch right next door. This area of the lake offers many amenities, and is conveniently located walking distance to Branchport, NY. and a short drive to anything you could need.

What makes this house unique

Level lot to the lake. Yard for yard games or kids to play. Permanent dock and sitting area over the water. Tie your boat right off the dock, or place it in the electric hoist. Swim ladder is also on the end of the dock for safe protected swimming. Front porch has dining tables for twelve, and a large hot tub. The protected bay offers great fishing right off the dock. Kayaks and Paddleboards are included to get you and the family out on the water.

Our group had a great experience, we toured the winery’s at the finger lakes but I’m sure we had more fun relaxing and hanging out at the house. Beautiful view and amenities, we plan on booking again and making a yearly thing out of this.

Wonderful house and ammenities

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house with a group of friends for a long weekend, and we had a wonderful time. The house has everything you might possible need, and lots of seating areas, which was great with a big group. We enjoyed the hot tub and the kayaks. The ONLY thing that would have been nicer is if it were in a clearer area, away from the marina. But other than that, it's a perfect place!

The lake house was so amazing but the only downside is the water is pretty chilly and we went in summer

Owner's Response: So glad you loved the home. Keuka Lake can be chili in early June. All of the Finger Lakes are quite deep and take a little longer to warm up.

Owners are great to work with. Where else could you find a host who comes to your aid with a TV on a Sunday evening?? Our second year at Pleasant Bay and will be our first choice every year in the future. Rip

Great house for a family to experience the finger lakes

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house to stay at with a group of 3 families. Plenty of open space to play and relax. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and responded quickly to any questions. Would definitely stay at this house again the next time we vist the finger lakes.
