About the property

8 Person, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Modern Lakefront Home

Keuka Charm II. . .

Located in the Heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country, also known as the Cradle of Aviation and “Crooked Lake” by the locals. This lakefront home is perfect for family vacations and other special occasions. The lakefront views from every room are spectacular! Plenty of room for relaxing, both inside and out.

However you want to describe the region, guests will soon realize why the Lady of the Lakes has become the top destination in the Finger Lakes Region.

When you pare together the breathtaking scenery and delightful locale offered by the lake itself with our beautiful home you are in for an unforgettable getaway!

Situated on the WESTSIDE of KEUKA LAKE between Branchport & Hammondsport, this contemporary custom lakeside home is right on the water’s edge and boasts breathtaking views of the lake & bluff from every room any season, enhanced by a deck on the west side of the house, a lakeside Patio, and a HUGE, 1200 sqft dock, (great for sunning, fishing OR mooring your boat!). Virtually everything in this comfortable home is new. Enjoy a beautiful 100+ feet of shale gradual entry beach all situated in a great protected cove, it is perfect for kids and adults alike.

We have taken great care to make this lovely lake home into a modern delight and we think you will agree that this is one of the finest rentals on all of Keuka.

The bedroom on the lake level of the house includes a Queen size bed, with a bathroom next door, equipped with a washer and dryer and shower. The large, multi-bed 2nd floor bedroom includes custom-made QUEEN SIZE bunk beds, plus an additional QUEEN SIZE bed. Sleeping accommodations for 8 people, total! The second floor is rounded out with another bathroom & shower, as well as a built-in wooden desk & chair, all overlooking the lake & bluff!

The “Cooks” kitchen is complete with beautiful Cherry cabinetry, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, and will allow you to cook up the “catch” of the day or just allow for some great appetizers to be prepared. Enjoy your meal on the deck, the patio, or the HUGE DOCK, which will definitely allow you to unwind and forget about your worries. If you don’t feel like being in the kitchen take a short two minute walk to Lakeside Restaurant and allow them to do the cooking for you.

This home includes wood & tile flooring and hand-crafted wood trim on the windows and doorways, and is rounded out nicely with CENTRAL AIR conditioning. The family room allows you to relax while looking out over the beautiful scenes of Keuka.

Perhaps you would enjoy games along the shore, and at night you can relax and tell some stories while gazing at the stars. Go fishing from the huge dock or take the kayak out for a peaceful ride, there is no bad way to enjoy Keuka!

Enjoy the moonlight dancing across the water and perks of lakeside OR venture out to renowned Finger Lakes winery trails, many new microbreweries, quaint villages, restaurants, (by car or boat), marinas, tourist attractions & conveniences.

Wine making and aviation has shaped the region and endless vistas unfold from the vine clad hills. Over a dozen award winning wineries and micro- breweries offer samplings of their handcrafted wines and champagnes, & beers. Venture out on your own, following the Keuka Lake Wine Trail, or book a wine tour and leave the driving to a pro so you can enjoy the sampling and the views.

From casual to gourmet, hotdogs to upscale cuisine, dining by land or water, you will not have to travel far to find a memorable meal. As a matter of fact, you are within a two minute walk to the Lakeside Restaurant and a fully stocked marina.

Quaint shops in the Village of Hammondsport offer souvenirs, gifts, and fine arts. Take the road less traveled and go shopping for that perfect antique.

About 'Rick'

A semi-retired couple, with two grown children who enjoy the lake as much as we do -- and Rambo, the family dog! We'd love to have you come see us, and take advantage of this amazing spot on the lake.

Why 'Rick' chose Hammondsport

Keuka Lake has always been a special place for us. Having spent years coming to visit the lake, we decided we needed to make a permanent place for us. This spot in particular has an amazing feel with the cove and beach entry that just has a way of relaxing all who spend time there.

What makes this house unique

It's a unique spot in that you can enjoy the beautiful lakeside view of the bluff, while enjoying the comfortable and totally modern amenities of the house, including the large, 1200 sqft dock, the Patio, and the additional walk-out Deck just off the front door. Visitors can get away from it all, but be close enough to enjoy the local antique shops, wineries and restaurants, if desired.

Wonderful house, wonderful location!

This house is beautiful and perfect for a weekend on Keuka Lake! Very clean with stunning views of the lake. The kitchen had everything we needed. Bed was super comfy. Great for two couples or a family with two separate sleeping areas with private bathrooms.

Amazing place - clean and fun for the family!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable with all of the amenities you need to have a great time. The beds and couches were comfortable. The deck with huge picnic table and chairs has amazing views and was a great place to eat, hang out and play games. Beside the deck is a great area to launch kayaks and for the kids to play in the water. The lake was great for kayaking. There is even a great restaurant within a very short walk. It was cool to see the sea plane take off and land close by (although we didn't take a tour, but you can!). I definitely want to go back!

Perfect place for some R & R on Kueka Lake

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so perfect! It is all updated and clean. Even the landscaping is beautiful. You will have great views from inside the cottage and outside. It is very close to Hammandsport. You can go into town and walk around. The dock is perfect for hanging our or jumping in!

This is a wonderful vacation home,with views of beautiful Lake Keuka from every floor. The house is impeccably clean and spacious, the kitchen is very well supplied and the beds are extremely comfortable. The owners are kind, helpful, responsible and accommodating. The deck on the house is large enough for everyone in the family to relax, along with a huge picnic table to enjoy all your meals outdoors. The beach is a great place to launch your kayaks and paddle boards. My family had successful fishing every day from the dock. The location of the property is perfect -- in between Hammondsport and Seneca Falls, close to many wineries, breweries, and creameries. We had an awesome week, the best vacation house in a few years, and hope to return next year.
