About MICHAEL WHELAN
I grew up in Buffalo, NY and as a kid used to vacation on Keuka Lake. When I moved back into the area after living in Florida for many years one of the first things I did was to get reacquainted with the lake. Not much had changed in all those years -- Keuka is still the charming place it was.
MICHAEL WHELAN purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why MICHAEL WHELAN chose Hammondsport
I liked the home we bought because of the beach, which is great for kids, and the close proximity to the restaurants and shops in Hammondsport. After I bought the property I built two large decks to take advantage of the outdoor spaces and views of the lake. The docks will accommodate most boats are great for dropping a fishing line. The water at the end of the docks is about 10ft deep, so it's also great for diving.

Great location, very comfortable home , with a lovely beach and doc, I would recommend this for anyone who is looking for a get away
Perfect In Every Way
This property has a tremendous layout, with top notch amenities. Even thou close to town and marinas, boat traffic and noise was very minimal. The beach is one of the best I've seen on the lake. Water is crystal clear and the fishing is great right from the dock. The docks were able to accommodate 2 boats with ease. Mike provides an excellent information sheet which outlines the house setup and amenities. Also provides information on dining and activities with insight from his experiences. Would absolutely rent this location again.
Great Vacation on Keuka Lake
We had a wonderful time - the house is beautiful, great location, clean, comfortable, well equipped. We rented a boat, spent most of our time on or in the lake. Michael was very attentive and helpful.
Home Away from Home
Wonderful cottage to vacation in! Very spacious, open and inviting. Made use of the great little beach(make sure you bring your water shoes!), which had a small fire pit for those relaxing evenings by the fire and roasting marshmallows. The docks were great for fishing from. Had fun with the kayaks and water toys! Beds were really comfortable. Close to the quaint little town of Hammondsport where we spent some time exploring. Experienced some of the great nearby wineries, the Brewery of Broken Dreams and the Curtiss Museum. It was great just to spend some time relaxing with the family. Was grateful for the background info about the cottage and the local info sent by Michael. It was very helpful. Enjoyed our week immensely!
Perfect lakefront vacation!
After reading the other reviews here, we booked this house for a week and found it to be exactly as promised and reviewed. It is hard to find actual beach ( vs. docks) on this lake but this house has it and that was a big plus for our 2 little children. We went with another couple and the layout of the house allowed us to have somewhat separate space but also easy communal space. Cooked and ate out on the deck many times. Loved the short distance to Hammondsport and found it to be a very good location for doing other activities too. Wineries are very close and great parks, waterfalls all within short distance. Micheal provided excellent information about the house and nearby activities and responded promptly to my phone calls. We had some car issues on our 1st day and he gave us great advice on where to get it fixed! House has everything you need, so it is really easy to just show up with your suitcase! We would definitely stay here again!
Cannot imagine a better house or location!
First - Michael is a pleasure to work with. He made booking easy and provided a fabulous info/welcome sheet of info about house.
The house is the epitome of a NY lake house though much cleaner than many i have stayed at!
Kitchen and baths have been refinished and are in great working order. Feels like home. The beds/mattresses all feel new so sleeping was awesome.
House layout is phenomenal - kitchen, master bed and big bath along with dining/great room with view of water on main floor. Third bedroom and shower room with another living/eating area down. A two levels of porches. Made entetaining a breeze. Just a perfect layout for lakes.
Big outdoor area - grass for Spikeball, beach for lounging and kayak launching. Kayaks are in great shape. Storage shack also held huge couch-like tube and a single round tube - kids loved them. Set of OBrien waterskis put to good use as well.
House is minutes out of Hammondsport - kids walked it a few nights for pizza and ice cream (Crooked Lake ice cream is quite good). So a marina and stores are less than 5 minutes away.
We had a grand time and will most definitely be back in Fall and next Summer
