About C. William Champlin

My wife and I have been neighbors and dear friends of the owners for many years and now that one has passed and the other is in an 'Assisted Living Facility' we are managing the property for the family.

C. William Champlin purchased this cottage in 1975

Why C. William Champlin chose Penn Yan

Our neighbors were both Physical Education teachers in the Philadelphia area who often visited friends in the beautiful Finger Lakes and chose to retire on Keuka Lake.

What makes this cottage unique

Living on the East side of Keuka Lake provides us with many beautiful Sun Sets and expansive views of the lake. Being close to the downtown area is also a big plus. We are within a mile of one of the many 'Farm Wineries' located on Keuka Lake.

Great location and warm, welcome feeling. Cottage, grounds, and lakefront very enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

We could not have chosen a better place for our family gathering. Adults and children both made full use of the handy layout of the cottage including the huge deck, waterfront and fire pit. The kayaks, paddle boat and paddle board were in regular use and it was wonderful having the assortment of life vests available. We will recommend this location to others.

comfortable lake cottage,clean and well maintained, perfect on the deck, great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is an older lake cottage on Keuka lake, but so comfortable and well taken care of! Bill was most gracious and gave us a "tour" when we arrived so that we would know where everything was. We had a wonderful time visiting some of the area state parks, wineries, and relaxing on the deck overlooking the lake. Perfect getaway!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bill and Nancy's lakehouse mid-April for a long weekend getaway. The place was perfect - very clean, spacious and right on the lake! Not to mention it's only about a 3 minute drive into town and close to wineries and restaurants. We had a blast and hope to return for a stay in the near future!
