Keuka Lake Cottage Rental Special

vacation rental description

The newly renovated Jepsen Heritage Cottage, is located off State Rt. 54A at (formerly 42) 420 Crescent Beach Dr, at the northern end of the West branch of Keuka Lake about 1.5 miles from Branckport and 10 miles from Penn Yan.  It is in a quiet family community with both seasonal cottages and year-round homes. 

Guests of the cottage will enjoy an unobstructed, picturesque view of the western branch of Keuka Lake from a 2012 rebuilt enclosed porch. This includes a view of Bluff Point and the eastern branch which is nearly 10 miles away.

The cottage is situated on a level location from the 3 car parking area on the north, to the cottage, and then gently slopes to the water's edge. There are two small steps to the north entrance and a 2 step entrance to a newly constructed outside deck, on the the west.

The 55 - foot frontage is a fine-pebble beach which provides easy
access to shallow water. This area is perfect for families who desire wading or swimming, or just relaxing with a good book.

The water depth increases very gradually, from approximately 20" at the end of the dock to 4' deep at 130 feet from shore. The buoys mark the drop off to the deeper waters of the lake and are a favorite spot for fishermen from around the world.

Inside the buoys s a no-wake zone, giving safe swimming and recreation for families.

Previous guest's comments after staying at the Jepsen Heritage.

"The cottage is so cozy and well equipped!"

"It was just wonderful to wake up in the morning to the lovely view of the lake!"

"Thank you for a wonderful place to vacation. Best view of the lake! This cottage has character, and many comforts. We love it!"

"This is our 6th stay in your lovely Keuka Lake, Branchport. The fishing is excellent and we are already making plans to come back!"

"Getting up this morning and hearing the waves hit the shore is the best music ever composed!"

"Being from the city (New York), we absolutely needed this perfect rest, replete with tree frogs and ducks!"

"We have never been to the Finger Lakes glad we came. We
decided that Crescent Beach was the most beautiful place to stay!"

"What a beautiful cottage, we had a wonderful vacation here, and the
shallow water was perfect for our 4 and 2 year olds! We would like to
come back!"

"We had a great time! Highlights of the week included daily walks to the State Park, a hike to the top of Watkins Glen, and lunch on the terrace of Bully Hill! Thanks for a wonderful week!"

And from a younger visitor.... "At first I was a little mad that we were spending my birthday here. The second I got here though, I changed my mind. I loved it here. The swimming part, the Mercantile, everything was awesome! I really want to return!"

"The new kitchen, porch, and deck are wonderful!"

traveler reviews for this keuka lake cottage rental

Awesome house for our family vacation!!

Review submitted: July 14, 2014   Date of arrival: July 5, 2014

We stayed at this wonderful cottage on the lake for a week with our 2 children ages 9 & 6 and we can't say enough about it. The first night we were there, we knew it was going to be a great week when we used the fire pit to roast marshmallow for s'mores and watched all the fireworks going off around the amazing lake. The owners were so helpful with any questions we had prior to our stay since we had never been to the area before. Waking up to the sound of the lake was so beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed going in every chance we got, the water was so warm and we brought our own tubes and just floated around, it was HEAVEN! The cottage was so well stocked and the owners had instructions on how to use everything which was extremely helpful. The cottage was also centrally located to Pen Yan to go to the supermarket, ice cream parlor or any other needs. We really had the best time ever and can't thank the owners enough for allowing us to rent their home.


Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Relaxing with a Marvelous View!

Review submitted: November 4, 2013   Date of arrival: October 16, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin, it really was great to relax with a marvelous view of the lake and watching the geese come and go. Also the mallards were beautiful. Not to forget the King Fisher bird who landed around the top of the flag pole, end of pier, and even the housetop to dive for his food! It was a relaxing time on your enclosed sun porch enjoying God's marvelous handiwork. Sunrises, sunsets, fall colors ...loved it all and hope to return!

A Great Week!

Review submitted: October 12, 2013   Date of arrival: September 15, 2013

We had a great week at your place. We enjoyed the view form the porch and the swing on the dock was a favorite place for my mother. She was 93 on the 17th. We will have some great memories of the time we spent.
