Situated on the renowned East Bluff of Keuka Lake at 5283 (aka 534) East Bluff Drive, our updated 1930's cozy 2 bedroom, 1 bath lakeside cottage offers 1000 square feet of Keuka Lake charm with modern amenities.

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5
The Grape Escape was just right for a girls weekend! We were able to shop in Hammondsport, enjoy Finger Lakes wine tastings and local cuisine during the day, then late afternoon return to the cottage for happy hour and dinner. Sitting in the wonderful Adirondack chairs by a fire with a glass of Finger Lakes wine was the perfect way to end the day! We will definitely be return guests at the Grape Escape! Thank you Scott for sharing your family's cottage!

The Great Grape Escape

  • 5 of 5
Comfortable, clean home on a beautiful lake. Owners provide helpful guidance so you can enjoy all the place has to offer. We fished, swam, shopped, played cards, and relaxed in the evenings around the fire pit sipping Finger Lakes wine. Picnic table by the water for lakeside meals of fresh fish. Keuka is an excellent smallmouth bass fishery, and we landed some bronzebacks over 20". Our grown kids renewed childhood rivalries on the N64 game console provided. Neighbors were quite friendly without being intrusive. This entire region is just gorgeous. Take in stunning views from the local wineries, especially Heron Hill and McGregor. Rieslings and some Cabs are very good. All in all, a wonderful week! We'd love to return.

Awesome - quiet and relaxing retreat.

The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived and everything was as advertised. A lovely view, quiet, and relaxing environment. Owner communicated effectively leaving nothing to chance. Many great places to visit close by and close to town. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation. The value of the experience far exceeds the rental price.

We come up to Keuka Lake once a year from DC for a week in the summer and last year, was thrilled to find this cottage. So thrilled we are booked again this August.

Location is ideal - quiet in the bluff but still close to Penn Yan. If you rent a boat, easy ride across the lake to The Switz. Screened in porch was a great place for lunch and dinner and the Adirondack Chairs on the various decks and grass plus the hammock gave plenty options for relaxing.

Looking foward to returning.

The description of this cottage was exactly as written up in the ad. Very cozy and clean with great view of the lake, the sunrises were awesome. The owners were vey pleasant and helpfull, great to do business with. I would come again or recommend it to anyone. I am fisherman so having the boat right there by the dock was great, we also enjoyed visiting the wineries.

My family and I can't say enough good things about Hall's Grape Escape. From the fully functional cottage, to the idealic lakeside setting including lounging in the comfortable Adirondack chairs in the shade to the beautiful vineyard across the street to the perfect water to swim in with the friendly fish to the gracious neighbors on either side- this is a great place! That's why we come back year after year. We're not a religious people, but if there is a heaven on earth, this is the place. Enjoy.
