About Gary & Becky Knapp
Gary's connection to Keuka Lake goes back to the 1950s when his grandmother purchased a cottage on Keuka less than one-half mile away. Gary was fortunate enough to spend a number of summers at the lake during high school and college days. Gary then introduced Becky to the lake a year before they graduated from college. Subsequently, they introduced their two children to Keuka as youngsters during summer vacations at Keuka. Now Becky & Gary have had the privilege of sharing Keuka Lake with their five grandchildren. Being able to share the beauty of Keuka Lake across five generations has been a joy and a blessing.
Gary & Becky Knapp purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Gary & Becky Knapp chose Hammondsport
The road on which Respite is located - Grandview Lane - is appropriately named as the view of Keuka Lake and the bluff from Respite Cottage is truly grand!

"Respite" is a TRUE respite
We had a wonderful time. The place is so welcoming and warm.
The furnishings are quaint and color coordinating. They anticipate your needs and are very generous with amenities. It was very clean and comfortable. We will be back!!
Respite is true to its name
Three college friends, now into our senior years, decided to meet here from our respective states and found it a perfect place to re-bond and re-lax. Overall, it was clean and very pretty. The porch is huge and a good hang out. The bedrooms are small but functional. The kitchen is great with plenty of room for the 3 of us to do our own thing. Fair warning: Parking is tight. Lots of run on the lake with the 2 kayaks and a canoe for guests.
Wonderful old Keuka Lake cottage that has been modernized to today’s comforts. Tremendous views of the Bluff and the east branch. Huge front porch with nice rocking chairs. Very clean and comfortable.
Respite Cottage ~ Clean, Cozy and Charming
Respite Cottage is clean, comfortable, cozy and charming with its wainscoting truly giving it that cottage feel. The vintage and antique furnishings add to quaintness of the cottage.
Everything was so nice and clean and ready for us to enjoy as soon as we arrived.
The kitchen is lovely, blending old and new, and stocked with about anything you could possibly need. With the soft bed linens, bath and kitchen towels all provided, which is great and saves packing all those things, you only need to pack your beach towels for your lake activities.
One, if not the best feature of the cottage is the open front porch with four delightfully comfortable rocking chairs. We enjoyed mornings, afternoons and evenings on the porch reading, checking emails, taking in the gorgeous Keuka Lake and Bluff view, catching a nap, enjoying lunch on the picnic table with family and catching up with friends. When it rained, we could still enjoy being outside on the porch.
Communication with Bruce and Becky was great. Any questions we had were answered promptly and their check in and out instructions were easy and simple to follow.
We had the most wonderful week and left refreshed, renewed and revived – this cottage is truly a place of Respite. It was a week of catching up with friends and family, rest and relaxation and our time at this lovely cottage was priceless. We are planning on returning next year for another week at Respite Cottage. Thank you Bruce and Becky for making your cottage available!
A classic Keuka cottage....
We had a wonderful time at the lake, and absolutely loved staying at your fabulous cottage. It reminded me of the one we had when I was a kid. If you ever need a reference to vouch for how nice your place is just let us know.
My family had a relaxing time at Respite. The cottage was centrally located on the lake. The owner was responsive with communication.
