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 Keuka Lake

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 Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Property was well maintained, clean and spacious. Plenty of room for the seven of us that stayed there. Property had a large deck overlooking the water. Only drawback was a lot of seaweed in the water, however, the children didn't mind it. Bill was very attentive to our needs. Property was also very convenient to stores for groceries, etc.

Excellent location and waterfront access

  • 4 of 5

The cottage more than met our expectations. We enjoyed the waterfront on the beatiful lake. It was an unseasonally hot that weekend and the AC struggled to cool the second floor but the rest of the house was fine. Plenty of parking and only 1/2 mile to town for all your needs. A hugh deck overlooking the lake was the perfect spot for a family gathering of over 20 prior to a wedding. Bill was a great host, greeting us upon arrival and explaining all the nuances of the cottage. He also provided extra life jackets for the those in our group who wanted to kayak. We very much enjoyed our stay and we would definitely rent again.

  • 5 of 5

Teriffic home. Very comfortable. Excellent Views. Plenty of amenities. Well stocked kitchen. Tons of deck space and plenty of seating. Kayaks and a Paddle boat! Stayed 4 nights, Oct 7th thru 11th. This cottage is Great! Tons of things to do around town. Bill was a pleasure to talk to and to book with. He is close by if you need him. He stopped over to get the water out of the boat after if rained and asked if we needed anything. I don't have anything negative to say. Would definitely reccomened this property. This was my first visit to Penn Yan and I would love to return! Thanks Bill.

Absolutely Amazing Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

My now husband and I stayed at this lake house from September 10th to September 14th, 2015. We needed a place for us and our wedding party for the weekend of our wedding which was on September 12th at Abandon Brewing Company. Bill and his wife were wonderful!!! From the day that we booked this lake house to the day we left they were extremely helpful and accommodating and the lake house had everything we needed. It was clean, the rooms were a great size and the entertaining areas of the home accommodated a lot of people. We took full advantage of the kayaks and paddle boat they have at the home for guests to use and had a fire every night by the water. The views of the lake were stunning and it is very close to town which made it convenient to go to the store. We could not have found a more perfect place to stay for our wedding! I would highly recommend this lake house to anyone looking to come and enjoy the lake whether it be with a group of people or just a couple looking for a weekend away. We will definitely be booking this lake house again!

Amazing Lake Front House with even better location

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly what we wanted. The location was perfect it was quite and towards the end of the lake making it that more relaxing. The house was very spacious and we could have easily had more than four people and be comfortable. Bill was always there in case we needed anything. I would definitely recommend staying here and for sure will stay again. Cheers!
