Fallbrook Cove: Enjoy the most sun, longest sunsets & easiest walks on the lake
Imagine a lakefront cottage with the most sun and longest sunsets anywhere on Canandaigua Lake. Secluded by a private golf course in back, it's walking distance to the Finger Lakes’ best attractions.
Gather on the lakeside deck for a sunset BBQ - time stands still. There’s plenty of seating and the Weber grill has FREE propane.
Panoramic views extend 25 miles down the entire lake. On July 4th, enjoy front-row seats to city fireworks launched right from the lake!
Because the private road runs behind the cottage you don’t have to cross a road to get to the lake.
The level lawn has a boundary fence, fire pit, and 6 Adirondack chairs.
2 FREE kayaks beckon you to explore the lake and 6 nearby parks. The cottage has a buoy and light hoist for your boat. Water depth starts at 3 to 4 feet.
Inside, huge French windows, pine flooring, and a stone fireplace add vintage cottage charm. Local artwork provides a nostalgic sense of place.
Recent upgrades include central AC powered by a Nest thermostat and remodeled 1.5 bathrooms. 3 flat-screen TVs offer basic Cable, Netflix, DVDs, and Smart technology.
FREE WIFI provides strong connections throughout the property - even on the dock.
The well-equipped kitchen has an ultra-fast Bosch dishwasher, making cleanup quick and easy. A high-efficiency Miele clothes washer and dryer lets you pack light. Our city wins competitons New York’s best-tasting tap water.
Each guest sleeps like royalty because this cottage offers the rare amenity of 3 King-size beds and 2 Extra-long Twin beds. FREE linens and plush bath towels included.
The quiet cul-de-sac behind the cottage has a 10 mph speed limit for safe walking and connects to a network of level sidewalks and romantic lakefront parks.

About Else Reed
We met on the chairlift of a nearby ski resort – a lucky pairing of a Canandaigua native and a Dutch woman from Amsterdam. Although we grew up in different countries we shared a love of Canandaigua Lake, often staying with family and friends. For years we could only dream about owning a cottage because Canandaigua is the second most expensive lake in America (after Lake Tahoe). But buying this cottage and renting it out for just 6 weeks each summer allows us to achieve our dream. We love the location and this 4-bedroom cottage fits our entire family. Our 3 children enjoyed their first taste of freedom on the water here, learning to kayak, windsurf, sail and fish. Our oldest son even launched Canandaigua’s fireworks. Now you can build your own lake memories. Since we live nearby, we’re available if you need us.
Else Reed purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Else Reed chose Canandaigua
In 1924, the founders of the Canandaigua Country Club knew a good thing when they saw it. An old farm on the lake was the perfect place to build the area’s first golf course. To finance it, they sold 40 lakefront lots for just $600 each, creating a colony of classic cottages on a quiet street, with the lake in front and a golf course in back. Today it’s the most desirable part of Canandaigua Lake. When you’re here, you’ll understand why. Want to live like a local? It’s easy because you can walk everywhere!
What makes this Cottage unique
“Sunny, secluded and walkable” sums up this lakefront location because this cottage has the most sunshine, longest sunsets and easiest walkability available anywhere on Canandaigua Lake. To ensure that each guest gets a good night’s sleep, we outfitted this cottage with 3 King-size beds and 2 Extra-long Twin beds. FREE kayaks, propane, linens, towels, WIFI, Cable TV, and Netflix save you money. You’ll save even more because we don’t charge sales tax, occupancy tax or property manager's hidden fees.

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!
