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!


The Anderson Family

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!

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!

perfect ladies weekend

  • 5 of 5

A gem! We didn't want to leave. Hot tub, fantastic kitchen, pool table, and we even managed to have a sing-a-long on the (one of two) piano. We were happy it was raining because then we didn't feel obligated to even entertain the idea of leaving the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sarah! You gals were wonderful guests and I'm glad the pianos were used!! I feel the same when I am there and love the rain that keeps me in the cabin. Blessings to you all and we hope to have you return to make more memories! Sherrie

Perfect family gathering place.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for our son's wedding weekend. It was also a gathering place for the groomsmen and was the perfect backdrop for all their photos. We were even able to have the groom's dog stay with us and be In the photos. The home was large, outfitted perfectly and was wonderfully comfortable for our family. Highly recommend this rental and the owner, Sherrie, was an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Amazing Weekend at the Lakeview Lodge

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Sherrie is amazing. We walked into a welcome basket that included all these small gifts relating to the reason we were there - my bachelorette weekend. It was a great location for a limo to pick up and drop off and get us to 3-4 wineries in only 6 hours. The spacious rooms provided plenty of sleeping space as well as room for all 10 of us to eat, play games and relax. The large grill, jacuzzi and fire pit were perfect for us and easy to use. Don't even think twice about renting this place, do it - you will not regret it. We plan to book it again in the Fall for a family and friends retreat.

Owner's Response: Victoria, I am so glad to hear that your special weekend was everything that you had anticipated and more! We love personalizing the welcome basket to make your stay even more special. You have a great group of friends and you took such good care of our home. Thank you for the great review and we look forward to having you all again in the fall! (PS. Would love it if you would post a few pics of your group on our Facebook page, Lakeview Lodge !) ~Sherrie

Perfect House for a Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I rented this beautiful place for our friend's bachelorette and birthday weekend. We had such a great time and couldn't believe how great this place is! It is so spacious, clean, and well maintained and the views are gorgeous. Many of the girls enjoyed the hot tub at night and we all loved the 'log cabin' feel! We did a brewery tour around Canandaigua lake while we stayed (we used S&S limos, they were great also!) and there were 5 awesome breweries within 20 minutes of this place! It was really a great time and many of the girls mentioned they wanted to come back with families or for another special outing! The owner is also one of the nicest people I've spoken to and really made us feel like she wanted us to enjoy the property to the fullest! Overall, a wonderful experience!
