About Richard Rothfuss
I have always lived in the Finger Lakes region and find it to be one of the most beautifully scenic areas in the US. I taught in local schools for 34 years but come from a building construction background as well through my father. Much of the bungalow renovation was by my hand. Currently, I am one of the dealers and manager of Opera House Antiques in Hammondsport. I live in Dundee, a nearby village, with my wife Alice. However, my Hammondsport duties bring me to the village almost daily. It is a great small town.
Richard Rothfuss purchased this Bungalow in 2014
Why Richard Rothfuss chose Town of Urbana
Our decision to buy in Hammondsport was based on many things: some of these being the charm of a small and quite unique village. Hammondsport offers several events through the course of the summer and fall which draw large numbers of people to the village, Also, the location of Hammondsport at the southern tip of glacially formed Keuka Lake provides an ideal location for lake and other recreational activities. The bungalow is in an area of town which teems with very similar homes all built around 1915. This is one of the larger in size at 1050 sq. ft. and it was "screaming out" for someone to give it the attention it deserved.
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
We enjoyed our stay very much. The house included everything one could need and was very clean.
So Nice We Stayed There Twice
After staying here for the first time last year when we decided to head back to the Finger Lakes this year it was an easy decision to return to Richard's place. New windows and central air has been added since our last stay. Just added to an already comfortable little place. My wife is in love with this place so I can't imagine our second stay will be our last.
Place was clean and walking distance to the downtown area. Highly recommended.
Hammondsport Get Away
We stayed at the Curtiss Bungalow with another couple for two nights just to get away for a few days and break the winter blues. Also, our daughter attends Keuka College so it was a great opportunity to see her and her friends. The college is only 1/2 hour away.The owner, Richard, was very helpful and responsive to all of our needs and questions. He was there to meet us when we checked in and had the driveway and sidewalk shoveled for us since there was a wet, heavy snow fall the day we arrived. The house was perfect for two couples and had plenty of room for when the college kids showed up for dinner and games. It was very clean and had everything that we needed. The beds were very comfortable and the house was adequately supplied with plenty of clean towels. We decided we really should have stayed one more day to finish all the food we brought, beer we bought and the puzzle that we started while we were there! We found a flyer in the kitchen on the "Hammondsport Historical Trail" so we used that as a guide for a quick 1 1/4 mile run one morning. It was a nice trail and an enjoyable little run around the village. There were cute shops and a great brewery (Brewery of Broken Dreams) right down the street as well as lots of other breweries and wineries around Keuka Lake. We also drove over to Seneca Lake and the trip there was very easy. We would definitely stay there again.
Clean, Comfortable, and Cozy
Our stay at this property could not have been better!
Communication with the owner was incredibly easy. We expected to arrive very early in the morning, and he was extremely accommodating. When we had questions, he promptly got back to us. He checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed and was very kind and professional.
The home was super clean, and all of the comforts of home were available--from clean towels and linens to cookware and utensils.
We will definitely stay here again whenever we return to the area!
