About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

If you are looking for a home away from home, FineView is it!!!!! Our 4200 square foot home is fully furnished and made for your relaxation featuring 5 bedrooms (3 queen size beds and 9 twin beds), 3 full bathrooms and 3- half bathrooms, living rooms (with a queen pull out sofa bed), family room with a stone gas fireplace, dining room and a kitchen with many of the amenities you are accustomed to. Wake up to beautiful sunrises and enjoy 175 feet of level walk-in beach lake frontage. There is plenty of room for family and friends to play around on the large lawn, beach, and patio areas. Our docks offers a place to park your boat and the public boat launch in Penn Yan (a few short miles away!) provides a platform to launch it. If you want to relax at the house and still enjoy the lake, take a seat on one of the rocking chairs and enjoy the view from our spacious porch. Finish off your day with a camp fire and fall asleep in one of the large bedrooms to the gentle breaking of wave’s right outside of your window.

FineView is nestled in the Keuka Lake Wine Country and is close to wonderful shops, wineries, museums and restaurants. The charming Windmill market, originally an Amish trading center, operates every Saturday morning in the summer months where you will find the freshest produce, cultivated and wild flowers, handmade furniture, delicious homemade pies and other delicacies.

Keuka Lake (known as the'Y' lake) is the cleanest Finger Lake... great for fishing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, and water skiing. There are several marinas around the lake and motor boats may be rented by the day or week and tied up to the dock.

Linen Rental is available - please email for additional information.

We hope you enjoy this special spot as much as our family does and return year after year.

About Julie Dix

Ed and Julie grew up in the Elmira area and then moved to Massachusetts after completing their education. Now the proud parents of three great kids - we decided as a family that owning our own place on Keuka Lake was a dream come true.

Julie Dix purchased this house in 2011

Why Julie Dix chose Keuka Lake

Keuka Lake has always offered our family a variety of activities and we have formed many great memories in and around the lake. Purchasing our Cottage was a true dream come true for all of us!

What makes this house unique

The location on the Lake was what drew us to this particular home... The flat yard and the expansive front porch is a place we can enjoy now and see ourselves enjoying for many many years to come.

Beautiful house and unbeatable view!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a weekend getaway for three families with younger kids. The lakefront is easily accessible and well maintained. Julie provided great info about the house and our stay and made it easy and convenient for us to come and relax. I will definitely recommend this house to friends and family.

Amazing Vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time with our whole family at the Fine View cottage (which included kids, grand kids, aunts, uncles, etc. ). It is no cottage. It is a gorgeous, spacious home! We were all very comfortable and had plenty of space. The lake frontage is stunning. The little ones played for hours on the beach and in the shallow water. The older ones played for hours tubing and swimming off the dock and our boat. It was an amazing place, location and vacation! Can't wait to go back again!!

Family Fun at FineView

  • 5 of 5

Our first family (13 of us) vacation ever in the Finger Lakes area and so glad we found the perfect place in Fine View Cottage. The home is beautiful and spacious and the view of the lake is more then "Fine"it's gorgeous. We rented a boat for the week and the kids did a lot of tubing on the lake along with some water skiing and countless boat rides. Early morning fishing was a big hit and the kids loved fishing from the dock. The water is crystal clear and most of the time there were only a few boats out on the lake. With our big family we ate all our meals in and enjoyed looking at the lake from the huge dining room table. Every night we had a campfire on the beach - saw the full moon rising - amazing! Also took some time to visit craft beer places along with a few wineries. All in all it was one of our best vacations ever and I would recommend the area and FineView Cottage to anyone. Almost forgot - it was a pleasure working with the owner!

Lovely Home, Wonderful Memories

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 which included a range of generations from grandparents to parents to teens to kiddos and toddlers, spent a memorable week at Fine View Cottage. The cottage was everything we expected it to be and then some. We had ample room to be together and have quiet moments when we needed to. The gardens were in bloom and very well maintained. The shoreline was perfect for the little ones to collect and toss rocks, fish from the dock, and play lawn games in the evening. We all enjoyed the ample seating right down at the shoreline, great fire pit, and the rockers on the wonderful porch. We brought two kayaks which were in almost constant use (The five year old became the kayak princess showing perfect form!!!!) and rented a pontoon boat for a day of cruising and tubing. Next year we plan to bring paddle boards for the tweens and teens. The owner, Julie Dix, was ever so responsive to our questions and we couldn't have asked for better and responsive communication. Thank you, Julie, for a most wonderful and memorable family vacation. We absolutely hope to return next summer.
