Welcome to Lakecrest Manor on beautiful Keuka Lake in the heart of New York's Finger Lakes Wine Country, just four miles south of the village of Penn Yan and only a short walk from the campus of Keuka College. Lakecrest Manor consists of the 'Manor House' and the 'Bungalow' and is perched on the crest of 190 feet of private 'walk-in' lake frontage with shale beach. Lakecrest Manor is perfect for small family reunions.
The Manor House sleeps eight and has three bedrooms (4 twin beds, 1 king, and 1 double bed), two full bathrooms (one with tub/shower, and one with shower), and a fully equipped kitchen. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace, HDTV with digital cable service and DVD player, and AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo system. A large, attached deck with two picnic tables is right on the water's edge.
The recently remodeled (2007) Bungalow sleeps up to four, and is right next door. It has a loft/bedroom (queen-size bed), full bathroom, and an eat-in kitchen. The living room has HDTV with digital cable service and DVD/VCR players, and a futon that folds out to a full size bed. There is a private deck with picnic table and deck chairs off the kitchen. The loft also includes a sitting/reading/nursery area, and a separate TV in the sleeping area.

Keuka Lake, with its unusual Y-shape, is 20 miles long, up to 2 miles wide, and boasts 60 miles of shoreline. With an elevation of 715 feet above sea level, it is almost 200 feet deep at it's deepest point. It has a scenic bluff rising over 700 feet above lake level between the two branches of the Y. Lakecrest Manor is located on the west side of the east branch of the Y on East Bluff Road, approximately 4 miles south of the village of Penn Yan.
Keuka Lake is known for its natural beauty. It is one of the cleanest of the Finger Lakes, and is an excellent sport fishing lake, featuring wild lake trout, bass, and perch. In the Summer, the lake warms to the upper 70s and low 80s, making it perfect for swimming, tubing, waterskiing, or just floating peacefully in the water.
The Finger Lakes Wine Country is second only to California for the number of award winning wineries, with well over 50 wineries around Keuka, Seneca, and Cayuga Lakes. The hillsides surrounding Keuka Lake are dotted with numerous vineyards, and dozens of wineries are within a 30 mile radius of Lakecrest Manor. There are now several microbreweries within a short distance, and the Crooked Tusker micro-distillery has recently opened above the southwest end of the lake.
For the shopper, the Finger Lakes region abounds with antiques, local arts and crafts, and Mennonite/Amish handcrafted furniture. The Windmill Flea Market just south of Penn Yan brings dozens of local vendors together every Saturday from late Spring until late Fall. Don't forget to visit the Waterloo Premium Outlet mall with over 100 premium outlet stores just a short drive away, and for the outdoorsmen, not far from Waterloo is the Finger Lakes Bass Pro Shop in Auburn. For a little excitement, try Finger Lakes Thouroughbred Racing and Gaming, just a few miles north of Canandaigua. Interested in the complete culinary experience?
