About Joe

My wife Michele and I bought this condo following years of searching and dreaming about owning a home on one of the Finger Lakes. Our three children endured spending vacation time looking for the perfect “place on a lake” in the Finger Lakes country. Our children are now adults and we have two new grand babies. Finally, the dream has come true as we bought our condo on Canandaigua Lake. Canandaigua Lake is beautiful and we have always considered the views from Bristol Harbour spectacular. The fact that the Canandaigua region offers a wide variety of activities spanning every season, made this decision easy. Our vision is to offer a vacation get-away to our family where we can generate long lasting memories. Michele and I would like the opportunity to share our vision with you, our guests, so you too can develop your own fond memories of Bristol Harbour and the many offerings of the surrounding region.

Joe purchased this condo in 2014

Why Joe chose Canandaigua

Canandaigua Lake is beautiful and there is so much to do year round. We are delighted to have found a place that has all of our family favorites. In summer, our family loves boating, fishing, water sports and of course golfing. In winter, downhill skiing is exciting and so much fun. The views are spectacular especially in the fall. We have a keen interest in wine and beer making and enjoy visiting wineries and breweries. The Finger Lakes Region offers such a fantastic selection. The food, wine and craft beer choices are amazing. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have found a place with everything we could possibility want all in one beautiful package.

What makes this condo unique

Location says it all. When we read the reviews from previous renters of this condo posted on the prior condo owner’s VRBO page, we realized that this condo is indeed a gem. The reviews were favorable and complimentary, focusing on the comforts, relaxation, amenities, and great views. Once you sit on one of our balconies, listening to the waves hitting the shore 100 feet below, taking in the spectacular views of the lake with the surrounding hills, you will discover the advantage of renting our condo. It is an experience to behold and you will quickly realize why my wife and I decided that this was the location for us, following years of trying to find that “right place on a lake”.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were delighted to spend a weekend in the Finger Lakes, and the stay at this condo was the perfect spot to stay and unwind. There was a great view from both balconies, and it is amazing to wake up to see the mountains and lake. We didn't have time to do a lot of cooking while we were there, but the kitchen had everything we needed. The owner was so thoughtful that he left a bottle of wine and two glasses out for us, which was a very nice touch! There was a very nice wood stove in the living room, as well as nice comfy furniture. We had a blast, and would definitely stay here again!!

Joe's place is beautiful. It is decorated very well and has a very relaxing, homelike atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing week. The view of the lake was absolutely breath taking. We enjoyed traveling a short distance into Canandaigua to find some yummy places to eat. We had a difficult time trying to acquire a dock due to an emergency with the marina staff. Joe did everything he could to help accommodate us and make the most out of our stay. We really appreciated the personal contacts Joe made to us to try to ensure our stay was enjoyable and stress free.

Surreal views and everything you need for your stay

  • 5 of 5

Property was well kept and Joe was great with all communications and follow ups. Even with some rain, the views from both private covered balconies were extremely surreal and calming.The views and amenities are first class. Coming from the big city, this was a fantastic choice for a stay. Only a short drive to anything you may need. I would highly recommend this property.

Thanks for privilege of letting us stay at this property.
