About the Property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

We invite you to a vacation retreat the likes of which you won't see anywhere else. These 2 cottages have been in our family for 5 generations and now we look forward to sharing them with you. Watch the sunset from the beach or on one of the porchs. Enjoy the advantages of having 2 cottages and 2 kitchens. The beauty of knotty pine throughout gives the feeling of a true vacation retreat.
The large cottage is called 'Twix Pines'(amongst the pines) . It has 2 bedrooms with double beds and a third bedroom with bunk beds. Laundry is located on the second floor. The living room has a couch that opens to a queen size bed. The porch is spacious enough to accomodate dining plus an area that includes chairs and a plush futon. Plan to spend plenty of time here eating, relaxing and playing games late into the night.
The second 'honeymooner' cottage we call JaTo (J-toe) after our father and uncle. It is a favorite with everyone. It has one bedroom with a double bed. The cozy kitchen and living area is bright and fully equipped. The couch folds out to a queen size bed. French doors leading to the porch provide privacy for relaxing or sleeping on the futon while listening to the lapping of the waves below you.
The huge 250 feet of private beach front means lots of room for relaxation and entertaining or playing a game of horseshoes. There's a firepit for all to gather at in the evenings. If you're staying on Labor Day weekend get some flares and enjoy the 'Ring of Fire' with all the other 'lakers'.
Cross the gully bridge on the beach and pitch a tent for camping fun. There is a rowboat and 2 kayaks for your fishing and paddling pleasure. Walk across the road and you can hike over 12 acres of woodland, have a scavenger hunt or picnic. Climb up the gully and look for salamanders. If you want to rough it pitch a tent in the clearing. (camp fires on the beach only)
We're sure you will create treasured memories and we hope you become a part of our extended family by making Twix Pines a family tradition.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1937

About the owner: We are a multi generational family who are scattered coast to coast. On the west coast we have families in Portland, OR and on the east coast families in Rochester and Syracuse NY.

Why the Owner Chose Keuka Park, NY, USA:
Our grandparents bought Twix Pines during the Depression when cottages were few and far between. They added JaTo, named after our father and uncle, after WW II so they would have a special place of their own. They loved the beauty and peace of Keuka lake. They enjoyed all the seasons with hunting, fishing and summers spent relaxing and entertaining.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
West Bluff Dr. is quiet and very pedestrian friendly. People enjoy walks with the family and bike riding. There are many activities to enjoy in the surrounding area from golfing or playing a game of tennis at picturesque Keuka College to antiquing, visiting the Windmill Farmers Market or touring the many wineries. Choose a lakeside restaurant or take a cruise on the Esperanza Rose and then up the hill to dine at the historic Esperanza mansion which overlooks the lake.
