About the property

4+ Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps up to 12

Welcome to Lakeview Lodge! Canandaigua's best kept secret! This spacious custom built log home is tucked away on a private drive and sits on 3 1/2 wooded acres overlooking the beautiful and scenic crystal clear waters of Canandaigua Lake. On the main and second floor this home boasts 4 spacious bedrooms and 3 full baths with 1 half bath, 2 large living areas,, and a spacious kitchen. With an additional queen size sofa bed in one of the living areas that make this a home perfect for a large family. There is also a full second kitchen in the basement along with a pool table room and also a great teen hang out room with IKEA furniture.

After a fun day at the lake or taking in one of the many local wineries or breweries enjoy a relaxing drink and take in the beautiful lake views on one of the two furnished covered porches. For cool evenings enjoy sitting on a beautiful flagstone patio with stone fire pit overlooking the lake and enjoy the breeze under the canopy of beautiful 60 foot trees.

For your furry four-legged family members their is a fenced side yard that will keep them close to you. As for the kids there is plenty of land to roam with a ravine and seasonal stream to work out all that excess energy. We are on a private drive with only two other houses and minimal traffic.

The kitchen has all of the amenities that you need to cook tasty meals including a commercial size grill for outdoor cooking.

If you don't feel like cooking there are plenty of wonderful restaurants and the New York Wine and Culinary School within five minutes of our home.

There is lake access to Onanda Park only a few miles away from our home which boasts areas for swimming, fishing, tennis, and hiking with waterfalls (A pass is provided with rental).

In the winter months after a long day of skiing at Bristol Mountain (only 11 miles away) wind down in the eight person Jacuzzi or sit by a crackling fire in one of the four custom wood burning fireplaces throughout the home, including the kitchen.

We are thrilled that you are considering a stay with us at Lakeview Lodge and look forward to spoiling you and making your stay a memorable one!

Although we do not have private lake access our house is just a short drive to several areas where there is lake access. One is only 1.2 miles from our front door and the other is 6 miles south of us (we provide the pass)! We are also only a short five minute drive to the pier where you can rent canoes, paddleboards, etc.

Please feel free to call owners directly with any questions that you may have at 704-966-7221.

(Disclosure: We cater to families and laid back vacationers. If you are looking for a party house, we would not be your destination. We also do not allow weddings or parties to be held at our home as we want to maintain a peaceful and enjoyable environment for our guests as well as our neighbors). Sincerely, Sherrie Anderson Owner of Lakeview Lodge

About Sherrie Anderson

We were originally from Texas but moved here 12 years ago and fell in love with the crystal clear lakes, rolling hills, and especially the four seasons and all the activities that are available here for all of them. We have 8 children and have poured our heart into this place and look forward to sharing it with others. This is our first season renting as we take some time to travel this summer and possibly the winter as well. We hope that you will feel the Southern charm and hospitality that we want to share with you while you are there. Kids are completely welcomed and so is your dogs. Being a big family we realized that it is not easy to find places that can accommodate a large family or multiple families so we are glad to offer this spacious home to your family. Please let us know if you have any questions. We would love to tell you all about the area!

Why Sherrie Anderson chose Canandaigua Lake

The view..the view...the view! And of course the log home has such a warm and homey feel. It's like bringing a little of the Adirondacks to the Finger Lakes! There is also more to do than you can imagine and wonderful shopping and dining.

What makes this house unique

There is nothing like waking up to beautiful sunrises peaking through the tall mature trees and sitting in the yard watching our kids play and explore. Love that we are hidden but only minutes away from Canandaigua's beautiful and historic main street!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here at the Lodge! It was a perfect getaway. A beautiful home with beautiful scenery. We enjoyed building an afternoon fire, as well as a lot of ones inside at night. The spacious kitchen was the perfect place to cook big family meals. We saw lots of squirrels and even a few deer. We took a little day trip to wineries and a brewery. We enjoyed the Pumpkin Porter at the Twisted Rail Brewery in Canandaigua. We loved the grape pie and wine left for us when we arrived:-)

All in all, a wonderful cozy cabin during the fall was just perfect!

Lakview Lodge in Canandaigus

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 4 children had a wonderful time at the Lakeview Lodge in Canandaigua this August 2017. This spacious log home had all the amenities needed for our family including 4 bedrooms, bunk beds, a crib and a high chair. There were 3 refrigerators and 2 stoves, 2 microwaves and toasters and 3 coffee pots. The seating in the kitchen was perfect for us. The view from the front windows was spectacular and the huge wooded yard and fenced yard was perfect for children and a dog, too. Peaceful, well maintained property with 2 covered porches, a hot tub for 8, and a large grill. We had such a good time that we may have to return next year.

Great home with a first class owner!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I take a road trip every summer and find a new destination for our family vacation. This year we set off mid-June to Lake Canandaigua for our first trip to the Finger Lakes region. This home was by far the nicest we've ever stayed in. It is a rather spacious home that is tastefully decorated. The hot tub is very comfortable and can easily accommodate four grown adults. Our family really enjoyed the seating area at the fire pit. There are some beautiful views of the Lake from the front yard. Even though there are a couple homes in the area things are laid out well to where we felt a great deal of privacy the entire trip.

We felt at home the moment we crossed the threshold. I normally have a little bit of anxiety when traveling. I usually feel out of place and worry about security and privacy. I never had any of those feelings in this home. In addition the master bedroom has the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on. I questioned my other family members and they all agreed that the beds in the other bedrooms were comfy as well. No one had a bad night of sleep.

The kitchen was well equipped and allowed us to prepare numerous meals throughout our stay. The family loved sitting down to eat at the long wood dinning table next to the kitchen area. In addition the table was command central for a couple family game nights including our very competitive annual monopoly game.

Sherrie is great and was very responsive both prior to and during our stay. She was always willing to provide advice and quick to answer questions. I've rented houses a dozen plus times and she is by far the best I've dealt with.

We loved vacationing in this area. There are a number of places to hike, swim, fish and shop (especially antiquing) in the area. If you're looking to go fishing or just want someone to take you out for a pleasure trip reach out to Mike at Sweet Melissa Fishing Charters. We went out twice with him (fishing and tubing) and it was more economical than renting a boat from the local marina.

Owner's Response: Chris, (First I want to apologize for my late response. My dad who lived with us just passed away and I am just now reading your review). I am so blessed by it and that you took the time to share you and your families experience at the Lodge! Thank you for the wonderful review and I am so glad to hear the great time had by all. We love how close to town the Lodge is but how secluded the property is as well, especially when you are enjoying the hot tub! And I totally agree that the mattress in the master is my favorite to sleep on. We really try to make sure that everyone has good sleep as we have stayed in places that were wonderful but were lacking comfort in the mattresses so we know it makes a big difference. Chris, you were a delight to deal with as well and we hope to have you and your family return in the future. God bless you all! Sherrie

Cozy cabin close to the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience at this rental. We organized an amazing yoga class through Grounded by Yoga, right on the lake not too far from the house and had the best experience! The house was clean, organized and exactly what we needed for our large party. We also enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit at night. Our weekend getaway in the finger lakes turned out perfectly, largely thanks to the owner Sherrie and all her helpful tips! Thanks for a great stay! We'll be back again!

Owner's Response: Oh my! Sounds like you all had a wonderful time!! I'm so glad that you all were able to do yoga on the lake. I am bringing a group of women to the lodge in the fall and plan on doing the same. We really enjoyed having you ladies there and appreciate how well you all cared for our home. We look forward to having you all again in the future!! Warmest regards and blessings to all, Sherrie

Another enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at this house, now formally dubbed as "Our Golf House". Place is well maintained and very comfortable for our group of 12 guys. Hot tub is great after a day of golf and the grounds and surrounding area are beautiful.

Common areas are ample and plentiful. Loved it!
