About the Property
2 Cottages, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10
The 8-acre property is next to Menteth Creek and looks due south, toward the receding hills of Naples and toward Bare Hill on the east side, enjoying a stunning view from the west side of Canandaigua Lake.
The property has been in the same family since 1922. The Stone Cottage was built in 1969, replacing an earlier cottage, and has a great room with stone fireplace, living-dining room, and open stair up to the master suite. The kitchen has a pass-through to the screened dining porch with built-in grill. The living room has a sliding glass door to an open porch enclosed by a low stone wall. There is a rear porch off the kitchen with clotheslines for bathing suit and towel drying. The two first floor bedrooms have twin beds and a full bath, while the upstairs master suite has a king size bed and a bath with shower. Overall occupancy is 6 and square footage is about 1600. An extra bonus - a grand piano!
The smaller cottage was built in 1948 for our grandmother – we call it Gram’s House. If you visited your grandmother at a lakefront cabin, this cottage will seem very familiar. It has a large screened porch across the full lake frontage, with a dining table that expands to seat 10 - also a chaise lounge and wicker chairs, and a pass-through to the kitchen. The living room and kitchen are knotty pine, with a stone fireplace. The house has two bedrooms, one with queen, one with twins, and a full size bath. Occupancy is 4, and square footage is about 900 square feet.
The property has level lawns surrounding both cottages, plenty of parking space, and an open field between the cottages and West Lake Road, so there is plenty of privacy. There is a tennis court (poor condition, shared) on the property, and lawn area for croquet, badminton, bocce, or frisbee. Our lakefront has stone breakwalls in front of each house, a 16-foot wooden dock with ladder, a swim raft and a shale beach (perfect for stone skipping) between. Lake bottom is shale. We do not offer the use of any boats, a hoist or a mooring, but past renters have brought their own or rented boats for daytime use from lakeside marinas. The shale beach area is level, so you can back a trailer to the lake and launch your small or mid-sized boat from there. The property has plenty of mature shade trees and perennial gardens. We have a large and heavily used bonfire spot near the beach.
We only rent for only a few weeks a year typically, in July and August, though we may be adding some May, June, September and October weeks to our schedule after March 15, 2017. There are no dishwashers, though we do have a washer and dryer, basic cable TV, internet access, Wifi, and a VCR and DVD player. We are especially interested in finding multi-week renters. Please contact us about the schedule if you are interested in one or both cottages for two weeks or more. We also occasionally rent on a short-term basis for intimate, quiet weddings or other special events of up to 75 guests - contact us for details.

About the owner: This is a lakefront property that has been in our family for three generations. We have been renting for a few weeks each summer for the past 8 years.
Why the Owner Chose Canandaigua, NY, USA:
Our grandparents bought the property back when Canandaigua had only a few cottages at each point, and our family has enjoyed the lake and keeping in touch with the cousins over the years, even though we are now far flung.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Having two cottages side by side makes this a great place for extended family vacations - two family groups can enjoy each other's company while maintaining some privacy and separate kitchens. Also, the view from our property has been called the best on the lake - looking almost due south toward the receding hills at the south end.
