Shimmering Shores is our summer home which we make available to you for your unforgettable summer vacation. The cottage is situated at the water's edge on 120' of choice, level lakefront. The gradually deepening water and protected area between two docks provide safe swimming for all ages.
This home features an open and spacious vaulted living area. The two-story glass front provides a panoramic view of the lake. Two bedrooms and full bath downstairs and a bedroom and adjoining full bath upstairs make this a great set-up for families of two to six.
A large deck with views of the shimmering water and the distant state park is also the place where meals become memorable occasions. Enhancing your dining experiences will be glimpses of kingfishers, herons, ducks, mergansers, loons and other waterside birds. Eagles have been recently sited on Keuka Lake.
Spend the most relaxing day of your life floating on a water chair or sunning on the dock. Other activities our guests love include reading or napping in a lounge chair under the willow tree, diving from the raft, snorkeling, and, of course, skiing and tubing.
Fishing is excellent here and many fish have been caught off the docks. One of the lake's most notable fishing spots is just beyond our raft. Grilled fish for dinner, anyone?
Use our canoe to explore the nearby inlet where wildlife abound. A marina is within a mile for easy boat rentals and your boat can be tied up at our dock.
The two-acre lot affords privacy and on-site parking. When you're exhausted from water activities you can try a game of croquet, horseshoes, billiards, or table tennis or shoot some baskets in the regulation height basketball hoop on grass. All this is yours for the taking.
End a perfect day seated around the campfire making smores. Rejoice at the unexpected sight of a full moon rising over the bluff and gaze at the starry, night sky. Savor the realization that you have experienced one of the best days of your life.
Our exceptional location affords endless daytime activites: enjoy wine-tastings at the renowned Dr. Konstantin Frank's or any of the nearby seven wineries. Many of New York's most award-winning wineries are on Keuka Lake. Take in some wine-tastings and learn to be a connoisseur.
