Property description

Perfect venue for vacations, weddings, and special events!

Built in 1865, this historic Federal Style home is set on four idyllic acres, featuring two time-worn barns and a charming pond. The property’s name is derived from the majestic weeping willow trees that surround the home. Enveloped by local vineyards, overflowing lush greenery, and rolling hills, this setting contributes to the overall romantic charm of the home.

The property is located in the Finger Lakes region of New York; a region with an infinite abundance of natural beauty. The Finger Lakes is also home to more than 100 wineries serving award winning wines of almost every variety.

The stunning historic beauty of the exterior is matched with a newly remodeled interior that preserves the historic integrity of the property while providing the upscale conveniences of a modern home. The interior is luxuriously decorated with exquisite antiques. In addition, the entire house has maintained its original broad-plank wood flooring and woodwork detailing, giving this historic property a unique feel.

The home features four large comfortable bedrooms with high-quality linens and two modern full bathrooms. One master suite and full bath is located on the main level for the utmost convenience. The spacious kitchen and large dining room lend themselves to convivial entertaining. There are several porches and an outdoor dining space so guests may fully experience and enjoy the property’s picturesque natural surroundings overlooking Keuka Lake.

The property is ideal for families or groups of adults who can share its intimate gathering spaces but that also enjoy having their own private retreats. The home’s peaceful setting allows for the freedom to relax and enjoy family and friends in a secluded environment. However with an abundance of restaurants, water activities, and vineyards in the vicinity, there are endless sources of entertainment at your finger tips.
The home is within walking distance of the very small and quaint town of Branchport, a ten minute drive to historic Penn Yan, and a fifteen minute drive to the charming and recently voted “best small town in America” Hammondsport. The closet airport is Rochester International Airport, about an hour drive from the home.

For those city-slickers who need to stay connected, the home features wifi and cable. Other amenities include air conditioning, ice maker, microwave, washer and dryer, well stocked kitchen, wood burning stove, and a gas grill. There are also conveniently located marinas for boat rentals, making it easy for you to enjoy the 23 miles of serene Keuka Lake.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

Why the Owner Chose Branchport, NY, USA:
My first visit to Keuka Lake was in 1975; it was love at first sight. I felt a connection to the area unlike any other place I had ever been. My parents began renting a cottage every summer on the lake and it became obvious that it wasn't just a magical place for me but for everyone who came to visit. My love of historic homes and Keuka Lake, led to the purchase of our family's main home, Bar Harbour, which is located across the street from The Willows. Our family was rapidly expanding and as fate would have it, the beautiful historic red home across the street became available. After touring the home and walking its majestic property, I immediately fell in love. The pond and the barn in particular, reminded of my childhood in the rural south. I convinced myself that somewhere down the line, I would have enough grandchildren to occupy both homes. Because of the special significance of Keuka Lake for our family, my son chose to hold his wedding and reception on our properties there last summer. While planning accommodations for out of town guests, it became apparent that there were very few homes available for rent that could accommodate larger families and wedding parties. Along with this knowledge and due to frequent requests to rent the property, I’ve decide to give it a go. Welcome to The Willows, I hope it will be as magical for you as it has been for us!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy the lake in style at this historic and upscale property.
