About Kirk Vieselmeyer
Kirk and Barbara Vieselmeyer purchased Eastview Cottage in the summer of 2015. We purchased Eastview Cottage because we own the blue cottage,Lake Lawn Point, next to it and we always loved the architecture of Eastview. We purchased Lake Lawn Point in 2011 and completely renovated it as well as our guest cottage , Sin Cottage. It is called Sin Cottage because back in the late 1800s the women didn't approve of the men's smoking and drinking habits so Sin Cottage was built for them. Sin Cottage is our guest home but it usually is occupied by our family. We have 4 married sons and are thrilled to have 9 grandchildren . We embrace family time at our lake home and we enjoy meeting new guests each year.

Why Kirk Vieselmeyer chose Penn Yan
We purchased Eastview Cottage because we own the blue cottage next to it and we have always loved the architecture . It was part of the Lake Lawn Estate once and we wanted to keep it's history in tact. We feel that location is the key to owning a lake home. We are five minutes from Penn Yan and when you have a family and many guests there is always something that we need in town. Or after a fun day at the lake we might just order some food from town. We also are close to many wineries and breweries as well. Having a hospital near by is a big advantage too. The water is pretty shallow and usually warm. We have very friendly lake neighbors that we enjoy socializing with.

There were 10 of us that came in from Friday-Sunday for a girls weekend away. The house was adorable and exactly what we needed. We want to come back in the summer to take advantage of the Lake! The views were incredible. The kitchen comes with just about everything you need and the fact there are two full baths came in handy! Kirk was great to work with. He was incredibly responsive to any questions I had leading up to the trip and was available right away when we checked in and had one more question. I highly recommend this house and Kirk!
Great home and location. Pictures online are accurate. Kirk was a pleasure to deal with. Most responsive owner I’ve ever rented from. Highly recommend this home.
Awesome Fall Getaway
We had a great visit at Eastview Cottage! It was a chilly weekend so we didn't get to enjoy the canoe or paddleboat, but we did do a little fishing each day and a campfire each night. The cottage was beautiful and stocked with pots, pans, utensils, paper products, foil, sandwich bags, contact solution, a hairdryer and more. It had everything you needed! Will definitely go back. Kirk, the owner, came over to greet us the first day and checked in with us after a day or two. He was great to work with!
Best vacation ever.
Loved Eastview Cottage! Would stay here every year if we could. Thanks for the best vacation ever.
I’ve stayed at this Lake house for several years and as always had a great time.
The lake house is very convenient to town. The view towards the bluff is great. It faces the east so the evenings are great for eating outside.
The exterior features include natural beach and retaining wall in front of the home, a large dock to moor your boat, large covered porch for entertaining, gas grill for all your outdoor cooking, fire pit with Adirondack chairs for evening campfires, roasting s'mores or just relaxing.
Water depth is gradual so you can wade in, place a chair in the water or enjoy excellent swimming right from our beach and dock. Young children can enjoy playing on the beach or safely swimming in our shallow waters.
Enjoy a beverage tour by limousine; take a bike ride around the beautiful Amish countryside; go shopping at the Windmill Farm & Craft Market; visit Garrett's Chapel; hike or bicycle the local Keuka Outlet rail trail; hike or hunt in Letchworth Park (USA Today Readers' Choice #1 Best State Park in NY); relax on our spacious covered porch with a cup of coffee to watch the sunrise in the morning or with a glass of wine to watch the last rays of sun in the evening; toast marshmallows in the stone fire pit while you relax and unwind in the Adirondack chairs. Whatever you decide to do--once you visit, you'll return again and again to our beautiful Eastview Cottage!
