Minutes from the quaint town of Hammondsport, this recently remodeled eastside contemporary home has unobstructed lake/winery views through three sets of full glass sliding doors. With its U-shaped dock with multiple swim ladders only steps from the house, you will feel the lake beconing you to come out and play. As sunset arrives you will find yourself gravitating to the dockside firepit with a bottle of one of the local wines sharing highlights of the days activities while the sky changes from brilliant orange to ebony dotted with endless stars.

The house itself boasts 4 bedrooms, air conditioning, a fully appointed kitchen, 2 story family room, Spiral staircase (there is an alternate second story entrance from the outside) Washer/Dryer, built/in gas fireplace, covered porch with table and chairs, and lots of books, movies, and games. The house is also wi-fi accessable.

The house is located close to restraunts, wineries, marinas. It is situated on a less traveled access road which is ideal for walking and bike riding.

About The Owner

Both of us love to travel and have done so both domestically and abroad. still, with all the sites we have seen traveling, we are still amazed with the beauty of the views at keuka lake.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Keuka Lake

After visiting friends whose parents owned a cottage on the lake. We simply fell in love with the lake and the area. After an exausting 2 yr search we just happened to spot a brand new listing for what would become our little piece of paradise.

What makes this house unique

This is truly a family vacation destination. You cannnot help but relax and unwind.

What a beautiful and comfortable home. The home is well maintained and the lakefront location is just perfect. We felt like we were visiting a friend's home - we will definitely be renting this house again!

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had another great vacation here! We have stayed here several times and have always enjoyed it! The owners do an excellent job maintaining the house and the waterfront location is great for swimming, boating, fishing or just relaxing on the deck and enjoying the amazing views of the lake and mountains. The neighbors are very friendly and helpful. There is a lot to do in the area as well: nice restaurants, wineries and charter fishing. The town of Hammondsport is very nice and conveniently close. We plan to return again!

We've been renting houses on Cayuga & Seneca lakes for the past several years and this was our first time renting on Keuka Lake, and it won't be our last. This house was fantastic on every level. Great location, perfect size, outdoor space is amazing and awesome sunsets. The deck and docks are great and ideal for the power boat we rented for 3 days and we were able to go for many dinners and lunches by boat. We also brought our kayaks and were able to launch from the dock with no problem. The weather was great the entire week and we loved the outdoor fire pit and used it every night while looking up at incredible views of the stars. Location of the house makes it perfect for so many trips. Hammondsport is a short 10 minute drive; Letchworth State Park and Cornell were both a little more than an hour drive and there are more breweries and wineries within 30 minutes than you can count. Communication with Dan & Donna was great, and the neighbors couldn't have been nicer and offered great recommendations for a variety of things. Although we didn't fish, we watched one neighbor catch well over 100 fish over the course of the week, including several nice sized small mouth bass. The house and lake were everything we could have ever wanted. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: So glad your family had a pleasant stay. We also wish to thank you for caring for our home in our absence. While Keuka may not be as big as our neighbors to the east, we really enjoy the intimacy that it provides. As you experienced, everything is just a short boat ride or car ride away. We look forward to your return.

Great Getaway Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage with a couple of our friends for a relaxing vacation and it absolutely delivered! The cottage was very well maintained and quite cozy! We loved all of the lake decor and the neighbors were very nice as well! We were lucky to have had beautiful weather all week that we were able to enjoy the sunset right on the dock and the fire pit each night. Very close to the local wineries, breweries, downtown Hammondsport and kayak rentals! Thank you to the owners for sharing their home-away-from-home with us! Highly recommend to all and would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Keuka Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property in a beautiful location. We visited Keuka lake as a group of 6 in town for a wedding. We had visited the area several times previously but this was the first time for us renting a house. The house is everything you could ask for. Four bedrooms, incredibly clean, right on the water with a dock slip (if renting a boat or jetskis), quiet neighbors, and only a few minutes away from the Hammondsport down town, wineries, the Switz, etc.

Would absolutely stay here again!
