Great time in the Finger Lakes

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, enjoying the lake and the surrounding wineries. This property has 2 porches perfect for family gatherings. The dock makes it easy if you have your own boat or you choose to rent one at one of the marinas. We met Sue and Gary and they are friendly and accommodating. The house is warm, clean, and very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again.

Gorgeous home.

  • 5 of 5

We came to penn yan for a girls weekend trip. The house was awesome. It was spacious and is literally right on the lake. The water is clear and clean. They have a fire pit and kayaks for you to use in the lake. The yard is huge and flat and the house has lots of seats for everyone to relax around the house. The owners are sweet as pie. They were so helpful and kind to us. We honestly did not want to leave. If you want to come to the fingerlakes to have wine and relax. This place is a must stay. The house has a washer and dryer and the appliances are all new. We were so impressed. It was worth every dollar. We definitely want to come back next year.

Wonderful experience

  • 4 of 5

The location was ideal for tasting both wine and beers as well as viewing the beautiful lake. We really enjoyed evening canoe rides. The home is warm and cozy with a living room big enough for all seven adults.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our 3 year old son and 6 year old daughter to this cottage last week and it was absolutely beautiful! The owners (Sue & Gary) are extremely accommodating and the setting is idyllic for a relaxing lake vacation. We visited the beautiful area wineries and restaurants and Penn Yan & Hammondsport have everything you will need to stock the kitchen for cooking meals and enjoying them lakeside. Would definitely recommend this property 100 times over.

We'll Be Back

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a family Vacation. Lots of things to do other than visit wineries, although that isn't a bad thing to do. You are near the town of Pen Yan with restaurants and small family owned stores for shopping. We have been going to Keuka Lake for 30 plus years and still find things to do. The cottage is clean and roomy and we liked it to the point of booking it for a week again this year. Would recommend a stay here for anyone coming for the first time or for a seasoned visitor like our family. P.S. The fishing is good too.
