About Maureen Farnand
My husband and I grew up in the Rochester area. We both came from large families and we love to travel and entertain. We enjoy this unique location on the lake so much, when the opportunity arose, we bought the house next door! We're happy to provide you with tips on good restaurants and fun things to do in the area, as well as directions on how to get wherever you want to go. We love this place and we want to make sure you do too!
Maureen Farnand purchased this House in 2010
Why Maureen Farnand chose Waterport
This location is ideal in so many ways: It is 45 minutes from our primary home. It is quiet and private. It has gorgeous views of the lake. Lakeside Park is a hidden treasure and it is in our back yard. We can leave on a Friday after work and enjoy dinner on the deck an hour later. Few people know about this location. The property tends to stay in families for generations and has remained a hidden treasure we were lucky enough to learn about through my uncle who introduced our family to this beautiful spot in 1959.
What makes this House unique
There are few places I know of, where you can walk outside in your pajamas, cup of coffee and newspaper in hand and as you head to the deck you look out on the vastness of the lake and see six beautiful swans gliding by. You have to wonder... how could I beat this?
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
First of all- the view cannot be beat! Waking up and looking out over the lake never gets old. The owners are right next door if you need anything, but aren't intrusive in any way. The house is set in a tiny lakeside community, where everyone waves as you drive up the lane, and the area always seems quiet and peaceful. Exactly what we needed as a getaway from high pressure jobs!
Maureen certainly has a one-of-a-kind spot here. The view is to die for. You’d be hard pressed to find a better one. It’s so relaxing! We could sit on that patio and look out over the lake for days! The house is absolutely perfect for a couple (we brought our pup and he had plenty of room also!). It’s super cozy and has everything you need! Maureen really makes it feel like home! We just needed to bring food and we were good to go! Stove, grill, convection oven all worked great! The bed was very comfortable (best sleep I’ve ever had somewhere other than home) We would highly recommend to anyone looking for a cozy couple’s getaway. This is THE place!
One thing I would point out to anyone visiting the area... it’s very rural. It’s not 2 minutes to a full fledged grocery store. It didn’t bother us because we are country folks to begin with but just an FYI if you’re not used to it.
Enjoyed our stay!
Great view; good location, really enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful view after a day of kayaking.
The property was exactly as advertised and Maureen and Darcy could not have been nicer. We spent the days out and about and then came back to the house to grill our dinner and enjoy the comfortable house and beautiful sunsets.
A Piece of Heaven Away From Home
We absolutely loved our stay!! My husband and I were looking for a simple, romantic weekend getaway to celebrate our 10 year anniversary and to just reconnect as a couple and best friends. We found exactly that and enjoyed a no-frills, beautiful lakeside experience! We had great food, a fun time hiking nearby, and had the opportunity to truly appreciate the quiet. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
My husband and I came to Waterport for a fishing trip for our 12 year anniversary this little house was the icing on the cake.
