Perfect fall weekend

  • 5 of 5

4 couples spent the weekend boating and touring the wineries. House was spotless clean,tastefully decorated,and had a beautiful view. Home now has a bedroom downstairs with 2 single beds instead of a double as advertised. There is a futon downstairs. Owners live next door and were very friendly and accomodating. We enjoyed the deck area and use of kayak. Town of Hammondsport was very close and convenient for shopping and dining. The boat launch is very close also. We would return again!

Additional sleeping are one Fulton and one sleeper both queen. In addition to the peak weekly sessions this is a great spot for fall weekend.

Beautiful property, right on the lake, all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property as a last minute Memorial Day weekend getaway. The host promptly responded to our request for booking with a personal call and gave us all the details. We arrived a bit late in the evening, but host was there to meet us, help us with luggage (there is a nice elevator to get things up and down from the property) and show us around.

Property is very nicely appointed, clean, and warm, felt like coming home. Property is literally "on the water" meaning you walk out the back door onto a patio, and then a dock over the water. Very convenient for swimming (a bit cold in May) right off the dock and using the kayak's that are provided.

Would highly recommend this for one or even two families as there is plenty of space (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms) with lots of water activity on-site and plenty to do offsite (vineyards, museums, shopping).

We'll be back, for sure!

This is the best place we've stayed! This cottage is charming and stylishly decorated, with plenty of space for our family of 3 adults, 2 teens, and one small dog. While most of our pleasure came from the near-perfect weather, and from being at our favorite lake, we also enjoyed getting to know Delia and Ed. They did so much to make us happy there: they greeted us and helped us get our luggage into the cottage, and Delia made our Sunday evening extra special with Sangria! (Delia, please send me the recipe). Next time, the only thing that could make it better: Ed, we'll bring the accordion if you'll bring your bagpipes!

Another plus: this cottage is just a few minutes from Hammondsport, where we love to shop and dine. Several wineries are also close by.

I am also glad to clarify the sleeping options: on the upper level the first bedroom has one queen sized bed, and the second bedroom has two twin-size (single) beds. The upper-level family room has a pull-out sofa that is queen sized. On the lower level, there is one bedroom, which has a queen sized bed. The lower level family room has a queen-sized futon and can serve as a bedroom, if necessary.

We definitely plan to return to our new coolest place to stay on Keuka!

Great relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the house on Keuka Lake. Yet, it is close to downtown Hammonsport and to several wineries. The owners Delia and Ed who live in next house were very nice and helpful. There was a kayak and a small boat available with 2 docks. The lake water is clear to the bottom. We especially enjoyed having our coffee out on deck in the morning. There was plenty of lawn chairs and tables with umbrellas. The house was tastefully decorated.clean, and comfortable. Since we are from the New Orleans area, it was especially nice to have the windows open. The house doe not have a/c but there are several ceiling fans and standing

fans if needed. Delia gave me a bottle of wine which is a nice touch. There is a steep stairs to get the house but the owners have a elevator next to the house, so we did not need to drag suitcases up and down. There were ducks and ducklings who came around wanting

bread which i thought was cute. The charming town of Hammondsport had some nice restaurants and grocery store just off of the town square. When we were there was a open air art show in the town square. Also every Thursday evening there was free live music in the town square by the gazebo. There were a few things I thought were a little different. There are no locks on the house because there is no need. No towels or sheets are provided and no

dishwasher either. There also is no dryer so I had to put wet towels in my suitcase on the way home. But no big deal. Overall, our stay was great and we hope to stay next year!!
