About the Property

3 levels - sleeps up to 14 people in warm weather, 10 people in cool weather

(Please do not pay through VRBO/Homeaway. Contact the owner directly from this page. Owner needs to know who applicants are. This will save you $ as well. Thanks)

There are 3 levels in this newly renovated Keuka lake property accommodating up to 14 people in warm weather.
The top level in the main house is air conditioned and has three private bedrooms with queen bed in main bedroom and (2 new cozy mattress) on full beds in the other two bedrooms . A large screened in porch leads out to deck with with a gas grill and umbrella table that seats up to six. The main living/dining room is very large and can easily accommodate your entire group.
The lower level is naturally cool and has one private bedroom with a full bed. Two twin beds in the living room area also serve as couches. Both upper and lower apartments have wifi, working fireplaces, bathrooms with showers and tubs, complete kitchens, screened in porches, dining areas, cable TV, and shared laundry facilities. Around the house, many mural size and smaller photos from late 1800’s to the early 1900s lend a wonderful feeling of Keuka Lake history.
In warm weather, the 3rd apartment, 45 steps down to the beach, is the “beach house” which is right down on the lawn of the very large beach, and has a private bedroom with a queen size bed and a couch that converts into a bed in the outer area - also a bathroom, hot and cold running water and refrigerator in the small kitchen area and a screened in porch.
The beach is very large with 110 feet of shoreline and a lawn - plenty large enough for bocce, playing catch, etc. A good sized stone campfire circle is nestled near the shore and a gas grill, picnic table, dock, comfy beach furniture, noodles for floating and a 2 person canoe with life vests are all provided. You can walk 10 minutes down the lake road to the marina and rent a boat for the day!
The property is on the eastern branch of Keuka Lake. Normally especially quiet on weekdays, the beach is its own little peninsula lined with a creek on the south side, providing privacy. The property is only available weekly in the peak season which is is from the third week in June through third week in September. It is available off peak season for weekends or specific date arrangements year-round. Ideal for weekend getaways, family reunions, retreats, graduations (2 miles from Keuka College). Families with children are welcome. No pets, guests beyond limit or wild parties are allowed. Renters must be 35 years or older to qualify. Reservations can be established immediately with a credit card. Please arrange for payments directly to the owner.
This place is a piece of heaven.

Finger Lakes was named one of 2014 top 10 wine regions in the world by Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Hammondsport, at south end of lake was named Americas Coolest Small Town, by readers of Budget Travel magazine! Known as the Cradle of Aviation, Hammondsport is home to the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum. Curtiss was the first person to introduce aviation into the public eye when he flew his JuneBug over Keuka Lake on July 4, 1908. Many wineries have great restaurants overlooking spectacular views. Great fishing, boat rentals for touring, skiing and water tubing.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1967

About the owner: I grew up in the area in Keuka Park, near Keuka College 2 1/2 miles from the property. The lake property has been in my family since 1967. I have run my own business as a graphic designer and musician for 35 years. My wife works at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester New York as a mental health therapist. We live in Rochester, which is about an hour's drive to the lake house.

Why the Owner Chose Penn Yan, NY, USA:
In 2017 the place will have been in the family for 50 years. My wife and I purchased it from my parents about 20 years ago. We rented it first by word-of-mouth and local postings. This is our 3rd year listing with VRBO. We continue to make the place even better every year. This year - a brand-new dock, new ceramic tile in upstairs bathroom, new mattresses and more improvements to beach house, upper parking area and gardens around the grounds. The place gets better every year!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fantastic lake view, very large beach - 110 feet of shoreline and huge lawn right on the shore - with lots of privacy, large fire circle, new 30' x 5' dock equipped for 2 boats up to 20 feet long, fishing and 6 feet deep off the end for diving. Three apartments (including beach house) with a screened in porch on each to get away from the group for quiet time. Two great fireplaces for cozy cold weather. We love to walk 3 minutes down to the marina and rent a pontoon or other boat for the day and cruise a restaurant where we can dock the boat for lunch or dinner, or park at the public docks and walk around the picture perfect little village of Hammondsport at the southern tip of Keuka. John "Book" Marshall, myself, the owner is very responsive to all guests and prospective guests and takes a personal interest in each group. I am always happy to answer specific questions about the place and the area throughout the year for folks, and either myself or my sister Kathy are there to welcome each group and show them around. I also send very good driving directions with a picture of the house from the road.
