About the property

(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).

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.

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.

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!


The Anderson Family

Sherrie Anderson purchased this house in 2012

Why Sherrie Anderson chose Canandaigua

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!

From the minute we arrived I knew it was going to be a wonderful vacation !

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is just lovely, the log cabin setting is warm and calming. An awesome view from each window; esp. the kitchen where we spent a lot of our time cooking, enjoying each other's company, dancing and sipping wine with a fire and candles. Our trip only included myself, husband and Angus the dog (we live in the inner city of Buffalo NY) so the space was vast but didn't feel empty/cold. The master bedroom had spectacular views-even from the bathroom and a very comfortable bed. I used the property a lot with long walks with Angus, relaxed in the hot tub and had a fire in the evening. Lunch and wine tasting in town at the culinary center was a perfect afternoon.

We really enjoyed the lodge and would recommend it.

I would book again and hope to - I really did not to want to leave :)

We absolutely love your home, and can't wait to book it again next time! This was our second time staying in the Anderson home and we wouldn't have it any other way! From the large rooms to the beautiful scenery it's 10 out of 10. Deer in the evening, hot tub, bonfires... Thank you so much for having us, we can't say enough about your home.

Until next time-

Sam, Ash, Deanna, Karen, Becky and Vicki

Lakeview Lodge has become our yearly getaway! My high school crew and I absolutely love this place!! Sherrie, the owner, and new bff, is the best. ☺ This place has everything you could want in a vacation rental!! We have never had any issues, but if we did, I'm sure Sherrie would be on it asap, as she is just a text away!! Everything from the view, the beautiful spacious kitchen, washer & dryer, plenty of sleeping areas, hot tub, WiFi, nearby seasonal events, you will not be disappointed when staying here!! We love it and will continue to come back, year after year, as long as she will have us!! Already looking forward to next year's stay!!

Lakeview Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Lakeview Lodge was a wonderful way for our family to end the summer! It was love at first sight upon entering this home with it's rustic elegance and it didn't take long to settle in for a relaxing and cozy week. Lots of room both in and out, and all the amenities the house has to offer made it a perfect "home away from home" for all nine of us - ages ranging from under 1 year to over 60. The kitchen is well stocked and the variety of beds available made it possible for all of us to sleep well. Family friendly beaches and parks are a short drive away, and the fire pit, hammocks, hot tub, large yard and gorgeous views from the deck provided many stay at home opportunities for relaxation. This was our first HomeAway rental and Sherrie was a perfect host - very friendly, always available to answer questions, and her personalized welcome basket was very much appreciated. I'm confident that this home would be enjoyable any time of year and highly recommend it!
