Perfect cottages for a Canandaigua vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit on the shores of Canandaigua Lake. The cottages are adorable and very well equipped with all the amenities we could have asked for. We loved swimming at the private beachfront. The location is excellent, very close to the grocery store and anything else we needed.

Mike and Toni are delightful hosts. They were available for any questions we had and we enjoyed chatting with them, while they also gave us our privacy. They take great care of the cottages and lakefront. We highly recommend these cottages for your vacation to Canandaigua.

Charming cottages in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for two couples...with two separate cottages on the same lot! Our weather wasn't the best, but we still had a lovely time at Canandaigua Lake. The owner is very nice and makes sure you have everything you need. We highly recommend. Deb G.

It was so relaxing and exactly as pictured, maybe better

  • 5 of 5

This is not my first time rental a vacation stay with VRBO. And again, we were extremely happy with our decision. The cabins were so cute and a perfect size for two (older) couples traveling together. The view of the lake was breathtaking. The owner actually took us for a boat ride around the lake, which before the ride we knew nothing about and after the ride we became Canandaigua Lake experts. He was informative and proud of the place he calls home. The kitchens were adequate even though we ate out most nights. The view from both cabins were equally spectacular. We even did a fire one night. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer. Next time, definitely a longer stay. Thanks for letting us share your homes.

Best spot on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been staying at this wonderful lakeside property for the past 5 years and look forward to our return every year. We have stayed in both cottages: the lakefront and the one behind. Both are equally comfortable with screened in porches. The hosts are truly amazing people, whom we've grown to love over our stays at Lake Canandaigua.

We most enjoyed the early mornings out on the dock having coffee just looking out at the lake as the sun came up.The serene surroundings and the beauty of the lake really give you the opportunity to detach from the real world and be on vacation.

The accommodations were more than ideal having the washer and dryer on site. The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen, living room and bathroom were all clean, which is saying a lot coming from me, who slightly obsesses over cleanliness. The kitchen had a coffee pot and was stocked with everything we could possibly need.

We spent most of our days swimming off the dock, using the paddle boat on site. We also rented a boat and a kayak and spent the day at Kershaw with friends snorkeling and swimming in the lake. The water is so clear and clean - we actually saw huge carpe swimming under the dock! It was surreal.

The days we needed a break from the sun, we head over to the New York Wine and Culinary Center. We enjoyed the wine tastings while our friends sampled the scotches, and we always pick up a case of wine to enjoy at home. The center offers wine and food pairing classes and many other events as well. Personally, I could spend the entire time in the amazing gift shop; it is superb.

We also love to head over to the nearby race track and place a few bets. You can get up close to see the horses which we really enjoyed. There is also a casino at the race track.

We are always sad to see our time on the lake come to an end. The owners went above and beyond to be sure our stay was more than comfortable. They made some great restaurant suggestions and let us know about fireworks around the lake on the Fourth of July. Overall, we felt they were very nice, down to earth people that helped make our vacation at the lake so much more memorable. We’ve recommended these cottages to some friends and they are also huge fans of this property on Lake Canandaigua. Two thumbs up.
