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 Hammondsport

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 cannot help but relax and unwind.

wonderful 4th of July week stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this cottage on the lake. The house was immaculate and had everything you could ask for. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need to make a meal at home (except the food), there is tons of seating inside for comfy lounging, and lots of seating outdoors to enjoy the lake and the views. The house is very well taken care of and has obviously been redone in the recent past. The owners respond very quickly to any questions you may have and the neighbors are super friendly. They even let us borrow their paddleboard! And having AC is a great bonus...the sun can be very hot on the east side of the lake in the afternoon.

The location on Keuka is great. You are a few miles North of Hammondsport for a quick trip to the grocery store or to walk around the shops and restaurants. It is a few miles South of the Switz for a great on the water cocktail and meal. There are tons of wineries and breweries in the area as well for day trip options. When sitting on the dock at the cottage you can see across the lake to multiple wineries up on the hill and we also were able to view a bunch of the sea planes taking off.

All in all the house was beautiful and clean and the location was perfect. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

Perfect get away!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have had a more wonderful time! The place was beautiful, spacious and comfortable. Pretty much everything we needed was available ...from kitchen supplies to blankets, etc. The view on the lake was amazing... loved sitting out at the fire pit on the dock at night...soooo peaceful. We definitely enjoyed touring the local breweries and shortage of amazing places to visit. Great local restaurants. Short drive to Watkins Glen State Park with beautiful views of waterfalls hiking through the gorge to top things off. Dan was a gracious host and was quick to answer any questions. Highly recommended...would definitely stay again!!

Another great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just had another wonderful vacation at this nice home. The house is right on the water making it great for swimming, fishing and relaxing on the dock. The views of the lake and mountains are amazing. The house is very comfortable and kept in the best condition. There are several wineries in the area as well as nice restaurants and the town of Hammondsport has several nice shops as well. We plan to return again!

Beautiful cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

Life is better at the lake! Thank you for sharing your cottage with us!! We had a relaxing week fishing right off of the dock, kayaking, playing games on the deck and floating on a raft on Keuka. The cottage was so clean and meticulously maintained with all the amenities we could ask for in a lake house. Beautifully decorated, roomy bedrooms, its own off street parking, air conditioning, Smart TV . We went to Corning Museum one rainy afternoon,kayaked at Penn Yan park,toured the Fish hatchery. Enjoyed ice cream and fried chicken at Seneca Farms Ice cream. Good times!
