About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4), great deck, great location

Welcome to the Finger Lakes Wine Country! Chardonnay Cottage is a historic, classic salt-box home in the charming Village of Hammondsport on the Keuka Lake Wine Trail. The Cottage has two-stories and includes a full kitchen/living area, a sitting room, two bedrooms, and two full baths (one on each floor.) One bath has a tub and the other a shower. Enjoy the huge deck and fenced yard. Deck includes gazebo/beverage bar.

The Cottage is situated on a gorgeous lot which backs up to a tributary that leads into Keuka Lake. Behind the brook are the lovely hills of Pleasant Valley, home to the origins of the New York State Wine Country. Chardonnay Cottage is four blocks from the southern- most tip of the pristine waters of Keuka Lake. There is a public beach and boat ramp. Boat rentals are available during the summer and fall months. The downtown square with its unique shops and restaurants is a short, safe walk in the 'Coolest Small Town in America.'

Keuka Lake (known as the 'Jewel' of the Finger Lakes) has many great lakeside restaurants in addition to fabulous restaurants within the Village. Boat rental/bicycle rentals available in area.

Convenient location for Keuka College parents and alumni.

About Dan & Bonnie

My husband and I love Hammondsport and the wine country. We plan to retire in Hammondsport and spend our lives enjoying this absolutely charming, quaint village. We love the house, the town, the lake and the magnificent surroundings. We are also quite happy with the wineries! We hope that you will have a great stay on the Keuka Wine Trail and truly grow to love this area as we do!

Dan & Bonnie purchased this house in 2013

Why Dan & Bonnie chose Keuka Lake

Great, cute house - hardwood floors - cathedral ceilings - huge deck - huge yard. Super wineries and breweries.

What makes this house unique

Great location - great views - close to everything - great neighborhood - charming house. Completely updated in the Fall 2013. Home is in pristine condition.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great cottage and a wonderful vacation! We loved the house and had just a fabulous time at the wineries! While it was still a little cold, the bright blue skies and the wine trail warmed us up quite a bit! I have recommended the Chardonnay Cottage to all of my friends! Thanks again.

The Chardoney House exceeded our expectations. Quaint and lovely home and Village. The kitchen and backyard Area and deck were icing on the cake! The owner/landlord could not have been more acommodating--down to sending us Hammondsport toutist information and having the firepit ready for a beautiful bonfire on a lovely evening. We would not hesitate to stay at The Chardonney House again. Sept, 2016. T and L G

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Hammondsport is a great location for visiting the finger lakes. Very cute little town. We took day trips around the other lakes with wine tasting, hiking at Watkins Glen and several trips on bike trails. Dan and Bonnie were very nice. The house was very clean and had everything. Nice back porch with plenty of seating. They even had a fire all ready to go in the fire pit. We would highly recommend the Chardonnay House as the place to stay.

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 days here with my BFF for a girls wine weekend! House is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. Wished we could have stayed longer. Looking to come back in the fall when the views must be spectacular.

Great house close to town!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay. House is perfectly updated (great kitchen!), clean, and comfortable. My fiance and I stayed in the house with my in-laws- the house was cozy, but having our own bed/bath on the upstairs floor (other bed/bath on the mainfloor) gave us great privacy. Air conditioning worked nicely in the heat (but plenty of windows and fans to cool down with fresh air). A perfect easy 5-10 minute walk into the town, yet still away from traffic and noise. Dan was super communicative throughout the process, and was helpful and flexible with changing arrivals, check out, etc. Would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

Comfortable, clean and inviting. Quiet neighborhood. Equipped with everything you need (except I couldn't find measuring cups.) Nice deck and deck furniture. Nice grill but bring some grilling tools. Comfortable furniture and beds. There wasn't a dining table - just an island counter for eating. This might be a problem if you wanted to play cards or do a puzzle, etc. Nice appliances. It was a pretty easy walk to the town for the Bakery and Ice Cream Parlor and to the lake. Great location. We really enjoyed staying there and I would recommend it. Quite a lot of owner's property still in the house like clothes, etc. We've stayed at a few VRBO properties and this is the first time for that. It wasn't a problem just a difference we noticed.
