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. Gorgeous shots of the lake also decorate the rooms.
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, hotplate, coffee maker, glasses, some dishes and full refrigerator in the small kitchen area and a screened in porch. The beach house is heated by two small space heaters – good for temperatures as cool as the low to mid 40s.
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 (enough firewood supplied for 3/4 campfires) 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.
