vacation rental description

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.

Keuka Lake's best restaurants are on the west side, the most notable being Esperanza Mansion with its glorious lake views.  A pick-your-own blueberry farm is closeby.  Enjoy hiking along the Outlet Trail or the Finger Lakes Trail.  Two alpaca farms are a short drive.

A drive to picturesque Hammondsport takes you on the one of the most scenic drives in America according to British Airways travel magazine.  Or drive through the surrounding countryside for a look at Mennonite farm country.

The Corning Glass Museum and the Strong Museum are about an hour's drive.  A unique shopping experience is offered at The Windmill.  Garrett Chapel with its beautiful stone work and stained glass windows is another must-see.  Golf courses are also nearby. 

Simply stated, this is the choicest site on the choicest lake in the Finger Lakes.  Come enjoy shimmering waters, beautiful sunrises, and starry nights.  Restore your soul.  We do everything possible to make your vacation exceed your expectations.

traveler reviews for this keuka lake house rental

Simply the Best!!!

Review submitted: August 21, 2013   Date of arrival: July 8, 2013

There is no place on all of Keuka Lake I would rather be. The private wooded drive down through the property takes you right to the lakefront. There are no steps to descend to the shore.

We spent 10 days enjoying the amenities at both the house and the nearby attractions. We loved dining outside everyday on the brand new decking while viewing the lake and glorious Daylily garden below.

Shimmering Shores has something for everyone. Spend time doing as much or as little as you like.

S'Mores and More at Shimmering Shores

Review submitted: September 7, 2010   Date of arrival: August 28, 2010

Shimmering Shores is located right on Keuka Lake, with wonderful vistas up and down the lake. A Keuka Lake tradition is lighting a bonfire on the lakeshore, and roasting S'Mores, under a blanket of stars, with fireflies dancing all around. Who can forget breakfasts on the deck at Shimmering Shores, with the gentle lapping of the waves in the background. The accommodations are extremely comfortable and very clean and well maintained, and the pristine lake beckons one to swim and enjoy the cool water. The nearby towns of Penn Yan and Hammondsport offer many attractions and superb dining opportunities. The world-class wineries of Keuka Lake are minutes away. Shimmering Shores is an ideal spot to relax and "get away from it all".

A True Vacation

Review submitted: September 3, 2010   Date of arrival: June 21, 2010

The view is gorgeous and there is a nice sense of privacy. My family loved swimming every day and the rec room was a nice surprise. The location is perfect with about a mile to stores and wineries. We all agreed we felt extremely refreshed and well rested when it was over. We will be back again and I can honestly say Shimmering Shores comes highly recommended.
