Stay in a renovated and traditionally decorated original West Lake Road cottage that includes 50 feet of lake frontage (you have exclusive use) directly across the road from the cottage. Skiing at Bristol is 20 minutes away. Clean and well-appointed in classic cottage style. The main floor includes two bedrooms that share a full bath. Twin beds in one room and a double in the other. Upstairs is one spacious bedroom with a king bed and second bathroom. The kitchen includes an eat-in nook and is modern with gas stove and all necessities. Enjoy lake views from most rooms in the house. There is convenient parking for three cars. In the morning, watch the day break with a cup of coffee from the sun room.
In the summer, enjoy the lake front. Moor your boat and use the dingy and dock for access. Head out in the kayak, relax on the grassy waterfront, bring your bike or walking shoes for a morning walk along the lake. Watch the boats go by and enjoy a view of the yacht club races. Relax in the back yard in the shade of the silver maple. Great location close to downtown Canandaigua--Sonnenberg Gardens, CMAC concerts, the Culinary Wine Institute, restaurants, shopping, festivals, and Wegmans are all just an easy 5-10 minutes away.
Anytime of the year, enjoy touring the beautiful Finger Lakes region during the day and return to 'the lake' in the evenings. Excursions to Rochester are easy, too, from our location--remember the festivals and other cultural attractions there.
Don't forget winter activities! Take advantage of the off-season rates and plan a ski week or weekend at Bristol Mountain Ski Resort. It's a quick 20 minute drive away. Cummings Nature Center and Mendon Ponds offer wonderful winter activities--rent snow shoes or go cross-country skiing on the well-groomed trails there or just enjoy a quiet winter hike.
Martha and Hugh moved to Canandaigua from the Washington DC area 10 years ago and now enjoy all the lake and the region have to offer. Martha is an educator and Hugh an engineer. When Rose Cottage, which is next door to our home, went on the market, we took the leap to buy it and renovate it. We had always liked the house and wanted to share it, and the lake, with others who would appreciate the setting.
Hugh French purchased this cottage in 2013
We love the Finger Lakes, and Canandaigua in particular. Moving here from a large urban area greatly improved our quality of life--traffic is minimal, beauty is abundant, and there's plenty to do. Living on the lake is special and we want to share this experience with others--Rose Cottage gives us the opportunity to do so. Since it is next door, it is convenient to manage. While we leave our guests alone--we very much respect your privacy--we're here if you need anything during your stay.
Private grassy lake frontage on which to relax. Convenient location two miles from the city with easy access to dining, shopping, all the Finger Lakes have to offer. There is a mooring for your boat and dock for boat access. Launch your boat at the state marina nearby. Comfortably decorated cottage with good spaces for visiting, playing games, and accommodations for sleeping. During winter months, come to ski at Bristol Mountain, only 20 minutes away.
We spent Thanksgiving at Rose Cottage and it couldn't have felt more welcoming and homey if it were an actual family member's home. The weather was cool and rainy, but we had the warmest stay. Traveling with a toddler, the house was well-stocked with baby gates and a highchair, and although we were tasked with cooking a rather large meal in a moderately stocked kitchen, Martha was so gracious in lending any additional pots/pans/utensils that we needed for cooking. We had the best time, and the view was beautiful (despite the rain!).
What a delight! We were a group of four friends and Rose Cottage was perfect for us. There was plenty of space to have time to yourself or time together. The house was cozy and clean. The owners were ready for us and answered all our questions. The opportunity to have a campfire by the lake was just what we had hoped for and we were grateful to Hugh for making sure we had all the supplies. Friends in need of a time to rest and rest we did. Thank you Hugh and Martha.
Our stay at Rose cottage was memorable. Everything was perfect! Home is immaculate, and the view of the lake was awesome. We would like to visit again soon, with our marvelous hosts Martha and Hugh. Thank you
This was the perfect rental for our family. The cottage was nicer than the pictures which were impressive. The 2 bedrooms on the first floor were perfect for our young adults and the master bedroom on the 2nd floor was the best! The location was close to town and convenient to the Bristol Harbour Resort where we were attending a wedding. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cottage for your visit to this area. Thanks Hugh and Martha for your hospitality.
Love this place! Gorgeous view with a charm of elegance... Everything you need and gracious hosts. Thanks to Martha and Hugh!
Overlooks the lake for great sunrise views. The house is very well kept and everything we needed was there including flashlight and candles required during an unplanned power outage in the area.
The owners, Hugh and Martha, are next door if you need them but unobtrusive.
The dock that comes with the house is great if you like swimming, boating or kayaking and the fire is perfect for keeping the chill out while star gazing.
Canandaigua Lake is a popular recreation lake in the western Finger Lakes region of New York. The cottage is convenient to the city of Canandaigua. Make Rose Cottage your home base as you enjoy all that the Finger Lakes have to offer.
