Why Craig Shoemaker chose Hammondsport

Our family has been coming to Keuka Lake for generations. This cottage was owned by our great-grandparents, and there is still a lot of other family in the area. We all grew up coming here and fell in love with Keuka Lake at an early age. It is a wonderful place for family and we have passed that love of the lake on to our later generations. The beauty of the lake and the surrounding area is unbeatable. There are activities for all ages - from swimming, fishing, skiing, and sailing to photography, crafts, visiting wineries, and meeting new people.

                                                              Went for a NYE getaway, and it was perfect. Nice quiet place, cozy atmosphere and all the modern convenieces one needs. Definitely looking forward to coming here again.

                                                              Everything was wonderful.

                                                              We enjoyed the spaciousness of the porch and of course the fireplace.

                                                              The kitchen was functional and the knives were sharp!

                                                              All 6 of us were comfortable and cozy in this cottage. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook our feast and relax at the table enjoying our beautiful lake view. The bedrooms were comfortable, and the wi-if and tv worked great, though we spent most of our time touring the area and playing games. We were blessed with decent weather, and got to enjoy the outdoors quite a bit. It will be a memorable thanksgiving for all of us. Also the owner was very easy to work with.

                                                              Great spot!

                                                              This house checked all our boxes! Clean, well stocked, great location, level yard with perfect water entry, dog friendly, and walkable to two wineries! We thoroughly enjoyed our late fall stay and will definitely be back.

                                                              Perfect weekend getaway

                                                              We had a wonderful time at your home on the lake. The house was very well maintained and had everything we could need. We loved the firepit and the Adirondack chairs. The sun room was wonderful as well. It was nice being so close to all the wineries during the day and enjoying the view of the lake at night! I would definitely recommend this place. Thanks for everything!!

                                                              Nicely appointed and easy access to water, beautiful views up and down water front.

All appliances either new or working well. Cozy and quaint. Woud love to visit again. Nice slope, easy, to dock and waters edge


                                                              Hammondsport, NY, USA

                                                              If Keuka Lake is the Jewel of the Finger Lakes, our cottage on Marilena Point is the choicest of gems you'll find right on the water! At first glance, you will no doubt understand why this charming and historic property has been cherished by the Shoemaker family since its construction in 1935. At second glance, when you walk through the back door, you will fall in love! Amidst the 30's vintage architectural features and antique pieces of our cozy cottage, you will also discover all the necessary updates and comforts for modern-day living...baseboard heating, ceiling fans, thermal windows; stainless steel appliances, renovated main bathroom, new/renewed comfortable furniture throughout; well-maintained outdoor landscaping; sturdy and comfortable outdoor seating, whether on the covered side porch, wide open lawn, or over the water on our permanent dock. To top it off, there is a large fire pit area at the water's edge for cozy evenings under the stars, while roasting marshmallows and having a chat. The "water's edge" is only 30 feet from the front door, with a very gentle slope into the water...just perfect for watching small children play in the shallows, sliding in your kayak and canoe, or launching your family's boat. The Finger Lakes region (with Keuka Lake at its heart) has long been renowned for its excellent wines, the production of which was first recorded in 1829, when The Reverend William Bostwick of Hammondsport planted Vitis labrusca shoots in the Episcopal rectory's garden...though commercial viticulture officially began in 1862, when the Hammondsport and Pleasant Valley Wine Companies were founded. The Finger Lakes of New York is now the largest and most celebrated wine producing region in the Eastern United States. At this point in time, there are over 100 wineries in the Keuka Lake area alone, most of which are open daily, year round for both tastings and Signature Events. It goes without saying that Keuka Lake itself is an outdoor "recreation center," whether for boating, water skiing, jet skiing, tubing, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, canoeing, fishing, snorkeling, or numerous other lake-based activities...its gorgeous clean, clear, sparkling water is a draw without equal! Within a short driving distance from the cottage is the village of Hammondsport to the South (voted "Coolest Small Town in America"), Penn Yan to the North, and Watkins Glen to the East. Keuka Lake State Park, Letchfield State Park, and Finger Lakes National Forest are all within a 60 mile radius of 9299 Spruce Road...breathtaking scenery, waterfalls, hiking, picnicking, and camping at your fingertips! Within a 20 mile radius are the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum, Champlin Beach, Depot Park, Finger Lakes Boating Museum, Watkins Glen State Park, Birdseye Hollow State Forest, Sugar Hill State Forest, and a large number of award-winning wineries including Dr. Konstantin Frank Wine Cellars, Heron Hill Winery, Rooster Hill Vineyards, and Weis Vineyards. So much to see, so much to do. Come on in, get comfortable, put your feet up, relax and stay awhile! The Shoemakers are very glad to have you...Cheers!!
