About Jerry & Jodi Kerby
Raised in the area, we couldn't resist having a piece of 'home' to go back to and just get that, 'aahhh' feeling every time. Enter Our Lake House at the main level off the parking area. The modern great room features vaulted ceilings, an open kitchen, dining & living area so everyone can enjoy the spectacular view and beautiful sunrises. The entire family can gather for dinner at the dining table that seats 8 & afterwards unwind in front of the flat screen TV with a bowl of popcorn. Beautiful hardwood floors compliment the home's character and add to the classic cottage atmosphere. Just downstairs are two large bedrooms both with flat screen TV's, a half bath and a full bath with shower. The lakeside bedroom is ideal for families with small children & features a queen & single bed with pull out trundle. The rear bedroom offers a queen size bed and private half bath. The large hall features a writing desk for reading or games & opens to a spacious deck with umbrella table and chairs for outdoor dining that overlooks the lake. At the lake level, you will find a screened in porch for lounging, relaxing and an afternoon nap. A large deck over the water and a permanent dock for your boat are exactly what you need to kick-off your next lake adventure. There is a 4 person pontoon paddle boat available for your use as well as a fire pit for evening campfires. Our Lake House is just a short drive from the village of Hammondsport, The Coolest Small Town in America, where you can take a stroll around town & enjoy an ice cream cone, fresh baked goods from the bakery or the week-end Farmers Market. During your stay, you can check out the antique shops or the wineries including Bully Hill, Dr. Franks, Heron Hill and plenty more. If you're looking to rent a motor boat, there are several marinas nearby where you can rent one by the day or hour! There's no doubt, you will love Our Lake House as much as we do and we are anxious to share it with you too.
Jerry & Jodi Kerby purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Jerry & Jodi Kerby chose Hammondsport
Growing up not too far from here & coming back to Keuka Lake each summer for family visits, we often felt that owning a house of our own on the lake was merely a pipe dream. Fast forward several years and our dream became a reality. We chose this cottage, as you will quickly see, because of the amazing sunrises, the spectacular views and the serenity that a small town can only offer. Whether we are here in the spring, the summer or fall, we have never been disappointed by the lake. From the ducks and ducklings that are regulars in the spring, the chipmunks and birds in the summer and the turkey gobbles you hear in the fall, Our Lake House is our home away from home.
What makes this Cottage unique
You walk through the entry and close the gate behind you and suddenly, you feel as if you have escaped it all. Whether you are sleeping in the lakeside bedroom or in the living room on the pull out sleeper sofa, imagine waking up early in the morning to the smell of fresh brewed coffee watching the sunrise over the hills. Breathtaking! If you want to sleep in, escape to the back bedroom with a private bath. Afternoons can be what you want. Filled with fun and excitement or simply laying on the lounge chair with a good book. Grab a life jacket and paddle around the lake on the pontoon paddle boat - it's not like the others! Evenings? Spend them around the fire pit roasting marshmallows or playing cards on the screened in porch while you enjoy the glistening lights from across the lake. There is no bad view day or night.

. I could live there easily.
This lakehouse was very well located & very well appointed. I love all the finishing touches. The owners were very patient with all my questions as i had never done this before. I appreciate their patience!
Vacation at Keuka Lake
Our stay was lovely. The rental had a wonderful view of the water from both the kitchen area and from the back bedroom. Very relaxing! Although we ate out every day, the kitchen was well stocked with kitchen supplies, utensils, etc. should I want to prepare a meal. I appreciated how clean the rental unit was. The rental owners were very helpful and took the time to answer any questions that we had.
Had a blast as usual at "Our Lake House"
We have rented this property the last three years and is always very pleasurable and accommodating. The washing machine being out of order was the only inconvenience, which required a trip into town to do laundry. Other than that everyone is always very complimentary on the layout, decor and cleanliness of the property.
We are honored that you choose to stay here year after year. We do apologize for the washer and dryer and while we had it up and running early in the season - it died immediately thereafter. Looking forward to another year!

Our stay at the lakehouse was wonderfull!! Loved the house, beautiful view, we had gorgeous weather! Loved waking up and looking outside at the lake. Made tons of memories! Thanks for sharing your house!!
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. It's hard to have a bad day when you wake up to the lake with the sun glistening on it! Finishing the day with a campfire while overlooking the lake doesn't hurt either! Hope to see you next year! Jerry & Jodi Kerby
Peaceful and quiet
We had an enjoyable time at your home. It was so quite and peaceful with beautiful scenery. The home was so well stocked with everything you could ever need. We normally rent every year but have never had such a well stocked home. The lake was beautiful but the only downfall was the weather did not cooperate for us to get in the water. So many things to see and do. The winerys were great and small towns were adorable. Looking forward to visiting this area again.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay - albeit the constant spring showers. We try to think of everything someone might want or need during their stay just to make it a little more "home". Please come back next year - maybe the weather will co-operate!
What a wonderful home! The cottage was clean, well kept, welcoming, and made us feel exactly at home. The big windows overlooking the lake offered stunning views, and the fire pit and paddle boat were wonderful additions to make our stay feel extra fun. The location was right around the corner from downtown Hammondsport and local wineries. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Thank you Julia! So glad that you enjoyed your stay! Hoping to see you again next year!
Shoppers will love all the antique stores & nearby Windmill Farm and Craft Market that's a short drive on Saturday. This cottage is located along the Keuka Lake Wine Trail and a short drive from the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. There are plenty of great restaurants and don't miss Seneca Farms homemade ice cream on your way to Penn Yan. Watkins Glen is an easy drive and a great place to spend an afternoon exploring the waterfalls and maybe catching a race! In the evening, come back "home" and relax at the firepit, roasting marshmallows and enjoying the stars.
