About Sam & Karen Bonacci

In the summer of 2010 we took a drive around Honeoye Lake. We never had any plans to buy a lakehouse but we fell in love with this beautiful setting. This is a very special place for our family and we wanted to share the "Serenity ". We only rent for about 4 weeks each season. We would like our home to be your home.

Sam & Karen Bonacci purchased this house in 2010

Why Sam & Karen Bonacci chose New York

We love this peaceful beautiful setting. The Bristol Hills provide a perfect backdrop to one of the prettiest of the Finger Lakes. It's only a forty five minute drive from Rochester so it is a perfect distance for us for a vacation property.

What makes this house unique

We love sitting on the deck and enjoying a glass of wine from one of the nearby vineyards. The sunsets with the Bristol Hills in the background are beyond description. This is our place to regenerate when we are feeling burnt out.

Great View of a Quiet and Enjoyable Lake

  • 4 of 5

Serenity at Honeoye Lake was a great place to relax with my family, spent most of the time relaxing and fishing off the dock. Serenity was made to feel like home and it did. I recommend anyone to enjoy a great week or weekend at this great place.

A month in Heaven or close to it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Serenity for the month of September 2013. What a delight. We had never been to the Finger Lakes region of NY state and the Serenity Lake House was the absolutly perfect place to center our activities. Quiet setting, on Honeoye Lake with a fire pit overlooking the lake - wow!

The house was immaculate when we arrived, with all the accouterments you could ever need in the kitchen and house.

The little town of Honeoye is only a couple of miles up the road and is quaint and peaceful. The towns of Livonia, Naples and Canandaigua were all within 25 minutes driving and have great character, 5 star restaurants, walking and bicycling trails and many local golf courses to boot.

Rochester is less than an hour away, and you can access the Erie Canal walking and bicycle trail that is paved for some 340 miles across NY state. Unbelievable experience for seniors and anyone else who enjoys the outdoors and the history of our great country.

We can't say enough good things about our stay at the Lake House. The owner, Karen, was great to work with s well. Terrific place, great area - we would love to come back!

Serenity at Honeoye Lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed at Serenity(perfectly named) for 4 days. The minute we stepped into the cottage we were amazed. It was not what we expected. It was indeed more than we expected. Very clean & spacious. This was way better than any hotel. We were in town for my son's wedding. Unfortunately we weren't able to really enjoy our stay due to being so crazy busy with wedding preparations. We are hoping that we will be able to return for some R & R someday soon. The area is so beautiful. The owners made us feel like very welcome. Karen & Sam went above & beyond to make sure that we were comfortable. Thank you Sam & Karen for opening up your home to us. Sam, you're a lucky man. Karen is a sweetheart.

The Serenity experience

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate as well as the photos. The property was very clean, updated, and well maintained and the owner very user friendly! We would definately recommend this property to a friend or relative. There is an excellent restaurant in the town of Levonia (can't remember the name), but ask around and folks should know as it is quite busy!! The only disappointment is that Lake Honeoye did not appear to be clean for swimming off the dock. We enjoyed a great time as there is plenty of other things to do!

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Serenity at Honeoye Lake is such a lovely cottage. The property is impeccably clean and has all the amenities you could possibly need when you are away from home. If you are looking for a relaxing, calming get-a-way, this is the place to be. The pictures of this property do not do it justice...everything is in "mint" condition and from the moment you enter you feel at home. We will definitely be recommending this property to friends and family. Thanks Karen & Sam for a lovely get-a-way!

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this lake home and we absolutely loved it. We had a great time fishing as well as boat rides and tubing off our boat. The scenery was beautiful (sunrise or sunset). We enjoyed watching the full moon rise over the mts. at night. The home was very clean and well maintained, and the owners were very easy to work with. We would recommend renting to all our friends and family.

Owner's Response: We've been sharing our lake house with friends, family and guests for the first time this summer. Everyone has the same comment. "it is so peaceful and quiet here". That is what captured our attention when we purchased this property at the end of last summer and what we hope to share with you. Come be our guests at "serenity".l
