Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-10)

Nestled on Waneta Lake near Hammondsport, NY, our cottage, A Little Ray of Joy, is the perfect place to rest and relax or use as a home base while visiting the Finger Lakes, the heart of New York's wine country. Waneta Lake is located between Keuka and Seneca lakes; it is three miles long and 3/4 of a mile wide. It's a perfect place for boating, fishing and swimming without the crowds.

The cottage was the original home on the property. Recently remodeled, the cottage is now available for weekly rentals. Water is filtered lake water, so drinking water needs to be brought with you. However, we will provide your first 10 gallons of drinking water. Also, please note that you will need to bring linens and towels, and pillows.

About Don & Dee Clarkson

Don and Dee Clarkson moved up to Waneta Lake from Painted Post in 1993. Don, a native of Corning, NY, and Dee, a native of Charleston, SC, own two lakefront lots at Waneta Lake. These properties have been owned by the family since 1947.

Don & Dee Clarkson purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Don & Dee Clarkson chose Keuka Lake

The property has been in the family since 1947. When Don's grandparents passed away, we were able to take over the property where the cottage was situated. Since then, we've built our own home on one of the two lots and renovated the cottage for family to use. However, since the cottage spends many weeks vacant, we decided to start renting it out for others to enjoy.

What makes this cottage unique

Since we are permanent residents on the lake, we enjoy being able to see sunrises on the lake year-round and watch the seasons change from the active summer season with boaters, fishermen and swimmers to the leaves falling and then the ice fishermen and ice car racers in the winter. Living on the lake affords us a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the beauty of nature with only a short drive to town.

LONG WEEKEND PARADISE

  • 5 of 5

We have visited this cozy cottage several times, and it is always a pleasure to stay here.

With so much to do in the area, it is nice to return and sit on the deck looking out on the lake, and

enjoying a beverage and bbq.

The owner is very helpful and fun to visit with and looks after your needs happily.

The interior is very unique, original to the cottage and the owner has added new additions on each end

with a new deck, and sunroom.

We really enjoy making the trip to this cottage, and this area, and will continue to do so !!!!

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to spend the Memorial Day weekend. Don and Dee are wonderful hosts and their cottage is terrific. I've stayed many places but this was by far the most thoughtful and well equipped of any guest house. Don and Dee meet you with a smile and are at your beckon call will all of your possible needs. I've already made arrangements to stay again next year.
