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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Hammondsport, NY, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
