Why Bill and Maryalice Kocher chose Keuka Lake

Location, location, location! The house is located on a beautiful tree-lined street and is a short walk from the village square (literally around the corner) and all the restaurants, shops and festivals that it provides. The public beach and part is a short walk in the other directions. A perfect place to spread out a blanket for a picnic, go for a swim, jump on a water taxi or just sit and watch the sun set. All within steps of the house. The perfect walkable get away!

What makes this house unique

Being near and not on the beach is a perfect lake get away solution for people with small children. They will have a yard to play in and Mom and Dad can relax without the worry of water safety. With the life guard beach with children's swimming area - it is a perfect family rental.

Super clean and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a cute house on a lovely street in Hammondsport. The location can't be beat -- it's near all the good restaurants and shops in town, and it's a short walk to the lake. We had a great time and plan to return some day! Thank you to Maryalice and Bill!

Very nice place in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice house in a perfect location. We were just two people, but it is easy to see how this would be a wonderful place for a family. The house is clean and has everything you need. The upstairs, where the bedrooms are, is cooled by several air conditioners. When we were there it was nearly 90 degrees, and the air conditioners worked GREAT. The king bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. The downstairs is adequately cooled by a loud but effective fan. There is a lovely front porch on which to have your coffee and/or wine. The house is on a beautiful street, one block from the lake, and only a few blocks from many good restaurants and shops. The only down side for us was that the internet service was very spotty. We almost never got a signal in the living room, and the signal we did get in the kitchen or dining room was dropped every few minutes. So renters should consider this as a property that does not have internet. But if that is not important to you, no worries! We also thought it was weird that, upon departure, we were required to strip the bed, separate the dirty sheets and towels, and bring the laundry down to the back porch. We were also required to empty all trash and put it outside. We have stayed in 4 other Home Away properties (2 in US; 2 in Europe), and we have never been asked to do these things. It seemed a bit much, especially since checkout time is 10 am. But if renters know about these small inconveniences going in, they will have a wonderful time in this nice house.

Owner's Response: HI Laurie, thank you for your kind review of Bunny's Lake House. We are glad you enjoyed our area. We are sorry you did not alert us to the problems you had with Wifi. Apparently something happened to the signal before you came and we were not aware of it. The Wifi there has always been strong and readily available to our guests. Since you didn't say anything to us about it, we had no way of knowing it was a problem. If we had, we would have rectified the situation immediately. Also, you will be happy to know that the "noisy" fan downstairs is being replaced with a new Air Conditioner. Once again, thank you for spending your husband's birthday in Hammondsport, N.Y. Maryalice and Bill

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

I reread the owner's description of the house again before writing this review, and it is completely accurate. Everything they said about the location and the in - and outside of the house is just like it is. We were 3 adults and two little girls. The girls slept very well in the room with the twin bed and little pull out couch. The shower in the downstairs bathroom is a little small but we never needed to use it - just used the upstairs bathroom for that. We didn't really cook during our stay but I could see that it was equipped if you wanted to cook. Having a washer/dryer is fantastic. They have a nice little coffee area set up in the dining room with a toaster. We had cool evenings so didn't need the a/c but were glad to see it would have been available. The town is literally right around the corner - couldn't be better. We walked to breakfast every morning and dinner every evening. Condos are currently being built on the lake at the end of the street, but the great little park and swimming area is still there. For those traveling with little kids, there are two playgrounds in town, one close by and the other at the elementary school about 1/2 mile away. We visited wineries and breweries every day and also stopped for a couple hours at the state park up near Penn Yan - love the area and hope to come back.
