Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed for a weekend. Weather was iffy, but the proximity of Whitby was great for dinner and wineries. The fireplace was great, and the rooms were larger than we thought. Loved the openness of the main living area and kitchen! Would stay again in a minute!

All the comforts of home; all the special features of a lakeside retreat. My family and my friends have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Whitby Cottage. Our appreciation to the owners, who share this gem of a property in a friendly, welcoming manner. Hope to return sometime soon!

Great family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented several homes on Keuka Lake over the years and Whitby Cottage did not disappoint. There was plenty of room inside to cook, relax, and sleep. The home was well-stocked and clean. The outdoor space is where we spent most of our time and we thoroughly enjoyed the large dock for fishing, relaxing, and docking our boat. Our kids used the provided paddle boat several times! The only suggestion I would make would be to repair the screens on the two exterior doors so that the doors could be left open without worry of bugs getting in the house.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback, especially on the little things that make a difference, like a screen that has come loose. We are glad our renters thoroughly enjoy what Whitby Cottage and Keuka Lake have to offer. I understand the bass fishing has been particularly good this summer!

We love Keuka! We live at a lake in VA and trailer our boat to Keuka for our precious week's vacation 8 hours away. We've been to this amazing lake 9 times for our family vacation and have found our perfect cottage! This was our 3rd consectutive time at Whitby Cottage and have never stayed anywhere else more than once. The owners are great, as is the house and property. It's in a great location, the cottage is so comfortable, warm and welcoming and the waterfront is terrific. Even the neighbor was wonderful, stopping by to tell us about the Keuka Wine Trail (thanks, Carolyn!)
We go-carted in Penn Yan, visited Garrett Chapel on the Bluff, boated to the Switz for lunch and Lakeside for dinner, walked a gorgeous gorge, tubed, wakeboarded, fished (and ate a great fish dinner - get your temporary license, totally worth the $), wine tasted, antiqued at Wild Goose Chase on the hill, shopped for gifts and ate and had ice cream in Hammondsport. We enjoyed the stars and the fire pit and laughed and soaked up the beautiful weather and view of the bluff.
We had one small issue with the grill (first issue ever) and it was taken care of within 12 hours by our terrific caretaker! (basically overnight)
Charming, Relaxing, Beautiful, Comfortable, so many wonderful memories made at Whitby!
I gush....I have never met the owners but would love to toast them with a glass of Finger Lakes Wine! Cheers!

What a nice time we had at Whitby Cottage!!! Owners have done a lot of great upgrades and are very nice (I met them). We made wonderful new memories. Whitby Cottage is located just north of the Waterfront Restaurant--great location. We would like to rent this place again. Wonderful porch, dock, view----no steps--a plus!!!

We loved Whitby cottage! We picked it because of the location and accessibility to my husband's family, however it far exceeded our expectations and we all had a fabulous time! The cottage was in great shape, clean, comfortable and being that close to the water was a plus! We would definately come back again!

A memorable week

  • 5 of 5
Wishing I had posted a comment shortly after we stayed at the Whitby cottage, but always better late than never. I'm prompted to do so now after my daughter's friend recently exclaimed that joining us at the Whitby cottage for a few days of our week stay was the best vacation she had ever had (and she's a fairly well traveled kid). The amenities were absolutely great! Close to so many things to do and an easy drive into Hammondsport for the morning paper. The house was clean, spacious, and had everything you could want. The dock was fabulous for fishing off of and tying our rental boat to. The front porch was a favorite spot for coffee. We've recommended Whitby cottage to friends and we will DEFINITELY return for another great week on Keuka!
