3 bedroom 2 bath cottage with fabulous private beach, 175 feet of natural shore

This special cottage is nestled in a quiet secluded setting with 175 feet of natural shoreline. Blends of new and antique furnishings capture the charm of the bygone years. This property is beautifully landscaped with flowerbeds and mature shade trees.

You will be greeted with breathtaking views of Keuka Lake while stepping down on a grand deck. You will enjoy spending time here lounging in the outdoor living area having your morning coffee and making good conversation. There is also a large teak dining table to accommodate family style outdoor meals that makes summertime so special.

The first floor of the cottage offers a 180 degree view of the lake from the sun room, an open living room, and a fully stocked kitchen. Upstairs you will find three bedrooms and a full bath.

Some of the outdoor amenities include a gas grill on the deck and a charcoal grill by the water’s edge. There are two docks to secure your boat or use as a fishing pier. Two kayaks, a row boat, and a canoe are available for your water adventures. The swimming platform located off shore is sure to attract water enthusiasts. Sunbathers will find tranquility while lounging on one of the docks or by the water’s natural shale shoreline.

Late nights will be enjoyed sitting by a crackling fire and gazing at the stars.

There is plenty of room to unwind in the relaxing comfort of lake living. Whether actively participating in the water, leisurely reading a newly obtained novel, or relaxing in the sun is your pleasure; you are sure to find peace and tranquility here. This is truly a special place where the tensions of normal-day life quickly become a distant memory.

Wherever you choose your upcoming vacation to be, we hope that it is all you desire.

This Place is amazing !!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't tell you how impressed we were with this cottage!! It has everything you can ask for !! Perfect charm in the layout and decor, all the modern amenities in the kitchen and bathrooms! And the views are the best!! A large deck which overlooks the beach, or sit out on the dock and wave to the boats passing by. It couldn't have been more relaxing. And I love the little free library!

So comfortable

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we started driving around the lake to the cottage we knew we would regret not staying longer...little by little we adjusted our plans to be able to get back "home" and spend time there. We came up to explore an area new to us and do some wine tasting, and there was much to see and do. But our favorite times were spent on the deck or dock drinking coffee and watching the lake come alive or at the fire pit at night.

Steve and Beth provided all the paper products (paper towels, toilet paper), cleaning supplies (dish liquid, dishwasher soap, sponges, towels), towels, sheets, coffee and tea as well as bottled water and a bottle of Keuka Lake-made wine. Our party of 6 enjoyed the charming cottage with beautiful outdoor spaces and accommodations. Next time we may inquire about rental of the power boat to take out on the lake.

Because we were visiting for a 4 day weekend we planned to eat out but soon found that required driving a bit and honestly, there were not many interesting choices for dinner. So bring food and stay in!

Beautiful home on a very special secluded area of the finger lakes region!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend at this beautiful property. It was off season but the seclusion, boating, wineries and sunsets were perfect. One of the best parts to this home is the gradual beach access, we have 2 small children and they were able to safely play near water, a rare style of home on keuka. House was clean & very well equipped. Hope to visit again!

We recently stayed for a girls weekend and the house was beautiful! The large deck overlooking the water was where we spent most of our time, there is a large dining table and very nice and comfy furniture on the deck to enjoy the view of the lake. The inside was spotless and the new bathroom is gorgeous. The kitchen was very well stocked also. We had 6 in our group and we never felt like there wasn't enough room inside or out. Some of us would drink coffee right on the dock where they have 2 chairs set up or some would stay on the deck and there was also a sunroom where we had breakfast. The fire pit on the water was great too and they left us wood, kindling, paper, etc which was very nice.The owners left a bottle of wine from a local winery for us upon our arrival and they were very accommodating and helpful. We will definitely be back!!

Gets Better The Second Time Around

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at your lovely cottage along the shores of Keuka Lake. Gets better with age and upgrades to Steve & Beth's house. Love the new bathroom. It is so nicely appointed & convenient. There wasn't a single moment wasted while we were there.

The deck is always a big hit with the size and views. Younger members of the group enjoyed canoeing while the rest of us cheered them on with our drinks in hand.

The deck & stairs would benefit with additional lighting to aid in seeing at night time. While the solar lights are nice they do not give proper aid while walking.

We love our annual trips to the area for the Keuka Lake Wine Trail. The Wind Mill is another reason to visit the area. Everything is nearby and the peace and harmony the lake provides is just the ticket to come and stay awhile.

Looking forward to next year already.
