About Joyce and Gerald Dunn

This is a long time family cottage. Joyce's father purchased the empty lot in 1965 and started building in 1966. Joyce grew up spending her summers here. Chip met Joyce in high school and began coming to the cottage in 1981. Soon our children began enjoyed summers here. It's been a great place to build memories with family and friends. We have made numerous upgrades over the years and take good care of it. We love this quiet out of the way location and know that you will too!

Joyce and Gerald Dunn purchased this cottage in 1966

Why Joyce and Gerald Dunn chose New York

Our cottage is unique. While inside the front area, it has 180 degrees of the lake. Everywhere you turn you can see beautiful Canandaigua Lake and it's surrounding hillside.

What makes this cottage unique

You will love sitting on the expansive deck during the day and on the lawn in front of a campfire at night.

Awesome Cottage on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time we have rented this beautiful cottage on the lake. And it certainly won't be the last! The cottage is so comfortable and well stocked. We had everything we needed to enjoy a fabulous family reunion. We fished from the dock and enjoyed kayaking and canoeing on the lake. The views are amazing. We cherished every day and enjoyed every moment. Everything was perfect and exceeded our very high expectations. Our thanks to the Dunn's for sharing their home with us and giving us bunches of fond memories.

Fantastic double birthday fun on Canandaigua

  • 5 of 5

This year, for my boyfriend and his best friend's birthday, we decided to change it up from our usual BBQ and get out of the city for some glorious time on the lake. We had a full house of couples and friends, along with our two dogs, and couldn't have had a better time. The Dunn's property was clean and comfortable, had plenty of beds for all, plus kitchen supplies and linens, that we never felt lacking for anything--but the real star is the huge deck! We spent most of our waking hours outside--swimming, sunning, canoeing, grilling, or just catching up under the umbrella with a cocktail; such a nice change from the hustle and bustle of the city, and the sunsets were sublime. All in all, it made for one of the best birthday weekends ever!

After our friends departed, and the night before my boyfriend and I were to check out, we added another day, just because we couldn't bear the thought of leaving, and the Dunns were so lovely to accommodate us on such short notice. Wonderful people, wonderful property. We will be back!

Beautiful lakefront getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family (including our 3 year old) loved this relaxing lakefront property. We appreciated the thoughtful touches to help us feel at home, including information about local eateries, breweries, and other attractions. Naples and Canandaigua are both easy drives from the cottage. The property itself was clean, well-maintained, and allowed plenty of space for us to spread out both indoors and outside. The large deck overlooking the water was absolutely amazing and provided many comfortable places to sit in both the sun and the shade, and to watch the sunsets. There is lots of access to the water to swim and explore, and the fire pit was a hit as well. Our only minor issue was that the oars for the row boat were not in good condition, but the owners were already aware of the issue and taking care of it. We will be back!

It doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

This place is everything as advertised and more! Wonderful relaxing environment with plenty of yard and water space. The deck on this place is to die for and a wonderful gathering place. It's easy to see why this family loves this home and the care they've applied over the years. The road to get here is part of the adventure and only helps build the anticipation to finally arrive at the ultimate getaway!

beautiful lake getaway home

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect vacation home for my family and I. The pictures don't do it justice. It was way bigger than I expected. the yard is huge and was perfect for my 2 year old. The fire pit and Adirondack chairs were great In the evening. We will definitely return.
