About Bequi hilt

The Hilt Family has been on Keuka Lake since the 1950's. My parents bought this cottage in the mid 1990's and my wife and I, Bequi and Todd, bought it from them this past year. My family loves Keuka Lake and we spend as much time as possible there. The kids love to swim, fish, ski, board, skip rocks, and just have fun. My wife and I just like to relax, read books in the hammock, and enjoy the beautiful area.

Fantastic weekend and cottage, even with the rain!

  • 5 of 5

This was a birthday weekend and annual tradition on the lake (continued in memory of our grandmother). The cottage was absolutely perfect; clean, cozy, beautifly decorated and nicely nestled away from close neighbors ( not as on top of you as other places on the lake). The view and overall experience was priceless!

PS, the beds were very comfortable too!

Relaxing Cottage on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this cottage as soon as we arrived. The location is far down on the bluff where there is no traffic which made it nice and quiet and also nice for bike riding. The cottage is very clean and comfortable with plenty of pillows and extra blankets. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need. The coffee pot is a keurig, so you may want to take your own like I did. There is an air conditioner but we didn't need it since the cottage is fully shaded and the sun sets over the hill behind you. The owners are wonderful to work with and made sure everything was perfect for us. There is a marina 5 miles up the road which we used to rent a boat for the day and you have a boat dock at the cottage that you can tie the boat to if you have to make a pit stop. We got a lot of use of the kayak and canoe and enjoyed a fire on the beach one night. There is a trolley to use to transport all your stuff from your car to the cottage which is a real life saver when staying on the bluff! The best part of the cottage is the deck, it has plenty of seating and provides an awesome view of the lake. My only complaint of this property is that the beach area gets shaded early in the afternoon and some days I just wanted a little more sun. I definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return next year.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this cottage. The view was amazing and it had everything we were looking for...including a dock to tie our boat to and a fire pit to enjoy campfires at down by the shore. We couldn't have found a better place to stay on Keuka Lake! Our young son didn't want to leave the "lake house" as he called it because "there are new toys to play with." The owner was so gracious to provide these activities. We definitely recommend this place and hope to rent it again!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was everything we hoped for. The deck was our favorite place to hang out and we made good use of the paddle boat, kayaks and canoes. Close enough to town, yet peaceful and private..the lake was beautiful. Not far from beautiful hikes (Watkins Glen - amazing!) and winerys. Accommodation were perfect for a family of 5 and could have fit 6 very comfortably. Everything we needed was at the cottage and you could tell it's well loved by the owners. Recommend and would rent it again!

Lovely lakeside cabin nestled in the trees!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (along with various family members who came to visit during our 2 week stay) had a wonderful time at this cozy yet well appointed cabin.

The spacious deck extended our living area outside the cabin and inside the cabin a fully functional kitchen made meals easy. Sleeping accommodations were comfortable even when we had a full house!

We enjoyed swimming, kayaking, and paddle boating, and took advantage of the gas grill for cookouts, and used the fire pit on the beautiful beach for bonfires.

The owners were most welcoming and attentive to our needs throughout our stay!

Home on Keuka Lake

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin. There were 4 adults in our group, and we had plenty of room. We spent a lot of time on the deck, watching the sunrises and sunsets, listening to the waves lapping softly on the shore in the dark, and watching a merganser family of 14 newly hatched ducklings grow into competent swimmers.

The kitchen has about everything you might want. Although the shower room is 2 steps out the kitchen door, it is comfortable and big enough. There are plenty of life jackets and water toys for a crowd, and the barbecue was great.

Bequi, the host, is very friendly and responded quickly to our questions.

We will be back.
