About Else Reed
I grew up on this lake and my wife is Dutch. We met on a local ski lift. After we married, she taught windsurfing on the City Pier. One night after work, she pointed across the lake and said, “We should buy a cottage there someday.” 25 years later, we did. It has the most sun, prettiest sunsets, and best breezes. Renting out this cottage each July lets us host our 3 grown children each August. We live in town and available if you need anything.
Else Reed purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Else Reed chose Canandaigua
“Canandaigua” is a Seneca Indian word meaning “The Chosen Place.” In 1922, the founders of the Canandaigua Country Club chose a sunny pasture just over the City line for our area’s first golf course. To pay for it, they sold 40 lakefront lots for just $600 each. The cottage colony they envisioned is now the lake’s most desired location. When you’re here, you’ll understand why: it has the most sun, best sunsets and easiest access to the Finger Lakes’ finest attractions.
What makes this Cottage unique
“Sunny, secluded and walkable” describes it. Imagine warm sun all day and picture perfect sunsets each night. With the lake in front and a golf course in back, our location is unmatched anywhere on Canandaigua Lake. Walk to parks, pubs, restaurants, and stores – it’s all nearby. This original yet updated cottage offers all the popular amenities: Central A/C, public sewer and water, 3 King-size beds and 2 Extra-long Twin beds. You’ll save money with FREE kayaks, propane, linens, towels, WIFI, Cable TV, and Netflix. Unlike our competitors, we don’t charge manager's fees, owner’s fees, sales tax or occupancy tax.

Great vacation home!
This was our second time to rent on the lake and we loved this home. It was so convenient for grocery shopping, eating out or walking to the park. We loved how clean and nice the back yard furniture was and spent most of our time there. The owner lives close by and is available should you have a problem. We didn't. We enjoyed the home and will rent it again.
Thank you for your kind words! Summer on the lake is all about being outside and we're glad that you enjoyed the lakeside deck and lawn. We would certainly love to welcome you and your family again!
Amazing family vacation!!
We had a wonderful week at this beautiful, clean home. There was plenty of space for our family of 6, including 4 adult children. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was plenty of seating for us to eat together in the dining room, in the sunroom, or outside. We all slept great on the comfortable beds and were provided with high-quality linens and towels. The sunroom was an added bonus - we would sit there in the morning to drink our coffee or enjoy an afternoon nap on the comfy couch! We all had fun exploring the lake on the kayaks, especially in the evening when the water was so still. We brought inflatable tubes and spent everyday floating and swimming in the warm water. Every night, I took way too many photos of the AMAZING sunsets and then enjoyed sitting around a bonfire with the family. We rented a pontoon boat and tube for a day and were able to drive the boat right up to the dock to load and unload. The location of this property is ideal – on a quiet street across from a golf course and walking distance to Wegmans, restaurants, Scoops (ice cream!), and lovely Kershaw Park. The owners were highly responsive and even texted several times throughout the week to make sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this property to any family wanting an idyllic vacation on an amazing lake!
Amazing week of relaxation in a beautiful home on Canandaigua Lake
Our stay in this beautiful home and on this amazing lake was much more than I anticipated. The home is so comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to entertain and cook your meals. The beds were very comfortable and there's more than enough space in each bedroom. The owner was in contact with us throughout the week to see if we needed anything. We enjoyed the kayaks everyday and loved swimming off of the dock. It's located on a beautiful, quiet street that we walked daily. It's located close enough to town to walk which was a great plus. We are already talking about booking this place for next year...same time, same place! Loved this property...
Thank you for your awesome review! Many thanks also for watering the planters during your stay! We are glad you and your family were able to enjoy our cottage…..this sure was the Summer to spend at the lake!
Awesome family vacation!!!
Our family had the most wonderful week long stay! The house was perfect for our busy family including three small grandsons! Very safe and private inside and out with a fenced in yard that kept us all contained!
The house and grounds were immaculate but extremely comfortable! The owners obviously take great care and love this property as it shows! We would happily rent this lovely property again!
Family Vacation with Young Adult Children
Our host welcomed us on our arrival and explained the ins/outs of the house and the area. They reached out to us several times during the week to see if we needed anything, it was very reassuring. The location of the home is perfect and the views of the lake are just breath-taking. The house was beautifully decorated and the kitchen was stocked with every pot or pan you could imagine needing. It is difficult to plan a vacation with teenagers/young adult children and make every one happy. The house had plenty of room for 7 adults to spread out and relax. The kids kept busy with kayaking, fishing and hiking. Everywhere you might want to go was within walking distance. This place is a real gem and we can't wait to plan another family vacation at Canandaigua Lake.
Thank you for taking the time to review our cottage. Having 3 teens ourselves, we know that taking them on a family trip can sometimes be a little challenging, but any time spent with them is precious. Glad our cottage could provide that setting!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was so well stocked, anything we needed was available. Everything was so clean, and in such great condition, we loved the large deck with enough chairs for
all 6 of us. The owner was always available for any questions or concerns
The 2 kayaks were enjoyed by all. The sunsets were amazing.
The cottage was in a very convenient location, close to Wegmans, I would definitely recommend this property.
Thank you for taking the time to review our cottage! We are happy you had a great family time! We work hard to keep the cottage in great shape, and getting a great review like this is our reward.
Hope we can welcome you and your family again soon!
