Shar 'N Shack, located at the midpoint of Keuka Lake between Hammondsport to the south and Penn Yan to the north is a beautiful, cozy little hilltop cabin nestled amongst the trees of a 5.5 acre wooded lot on the east side of Keuka Lake that offers relaxation, solitude, and spectacular views of the lake and surrounding area.
The peaceful surroundings of the property and fresh, crisp air will envelop you the moment you top the driveway to arrive at Shar 'N Shack, where a large gravel parking area is found adjacent to the cabin sitting on a huge, grassy lot surrounded by mature evergreens, maples, oaks and locusts that reveal breathtaking colors in the fall months.
From the parking area, a mere 7 steps carry you to the over-sized deck that overlooks the lake. Here you will find a gas grill for preparing your favorite meal, as well as an outdoor table to enjoy it while taking in the scenery.
Enter the home from the deck into the bright, open concept first floor that allows the group to spend time together, even during meal preparation and cleanup. The spacious kitchen, with plenty of natural light from the double windows, full size refrigerator, electric stove, microwave and plenty of cupboard space, is located immediately to the right of the entrance. Pots and pans, plates, glasses, silverware, and utensils are all provided.
The large living area, found immediately to the left of the entrance, also has plentiful, large windows overlooking the lake. Built for comfort, the living area has two large sofas and an overstuffed recliner. The décor, with hardwood floors that continue from the kitchen, natural wood accents on the walls and ceiling, and rustic elements throughout, complement the cabin-in-the-woods theme, and a woodburning stove is the perfect finishing touch.
From the living area, a short hallway takes you to the back of the home, where the steps to the second floor are found and a rear entrance can be opened to bring in additional fresh air. The first-floor master bedroom, located here to your right, is furnished with beautiful antiques including a full size bed, armoire, and chest of drawers. A color television is found in this room as well.
Directly across from the master bedroom and at the base of the staircase is the huge bathroom with large glass stand-up shower. Here again, the selection of antique furnishings and décor make this fun and unique - a far cry from your run-of-the-mill bathroom! Please note that bath towels are not provided.
Two additional bedrooms are found on the second level of the home. The first provides a full size bed and chest of drawers, while the second and much larger of the two has a full size bed, 3 twins, and a bureau. Fans are provided for each of the bedrooms, as are pillows, blankets, and comforters; guests must bring along their favorite bed sheets.
During the daytime hours, guests are encouraged to take advantage of multiple award-winning wineries and three public parks in the area, as well as many other attractions and museums found nearby, or simply enjoy hiking and exploring the delights of the 5.5 acre property. As the day's activities and pleasures wind down and the sun sets, gather 'round the fire pit at the edge of the parking area to toast marshmallows, revisit the day, and prepare for the kind of good night's sleep that only a day in the woods can bring.
Shar 'N Shack is the ideal, tranquil vacation destination for those on a modest budget who wish to relax, enjoy outdoor adventures, and make great new memories, so let's start planning your Finger Lakes Getaway today!
