vacation rental description

Beautiful Keuka Lake is the most picturesque of New York's pristine Finger Lakes, in the heart of the wine country.  It is 20 miles long, boasts about 60 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of 186 feet.  It has become the top destination in the Finger Lakes Region.

Located within a short walking distance to Keuka Lake State Park (with boat launch and many hiking trails) and Esperanza Mansion, our charmingly rustic, very clean cottage is situated on a quiet, private road with spectacular views overlooking the northwest branch of the lake.  This cottage is perfect for a couple or a small family.

Sit back, unwind and enjoy the gorgeous romantic sunsets on 50 feet of lake frontage next to your crackling beach bonfire.  Swim, fish, or take the rowboat out for a leisurely ride.  Or simply take in the beautiful scenery from the comfortable patio chairs on the partially covered deck after a relaxing day of wine tasting.

The cottage is 7 miles from Penn Yan, 1 mile from Basin Park Marina (boat rentals, etc.), less than half a mile to fine dining at Esperanza Mansion, a very short stroll to Keuka Lake State Park, close to the famous Keuka Lake Wine Trail for tastings and tours, hiking, golfing, gift shops, antiques, many restaurants and much more.

Esperanza cottage on Keuka Lake

Review submitted: October 21, 2013   Date of arrival: October 11, 2013

We found the cottage cozy for 2 and it had all the basics we needed. Kitchen is small for workspace, but wasnt lacking anything. Was nice to have the outside grill which was easy to use. Television screen was a little small too, so if you plan to watch a game it might be frustrating, but hopefully that is not why you are there. Unfortunately, we were not able to spend as much time in the cottage as I would have liked in order to enjoy it to its full capacity. Weather was getting too cool to sit on the deck or down on the dock. It was quiet while we were there with very little boat activity on the lake.

Even better the second time around!

Review submitted: July 9, 2012   Date of arrival: June 20, 2012

This was our second trip to the Esperanza cottage....and it was even better the second time around. We love this place -- it's definitely a serene and peaceful getawwy we look forward to! We took our jet ski and motorcycle and enjoyed exploring Keuka Lake by land and by sea :). We really appreciate the hospitality of the Hamiltons -- they always make us feel at home. We'd definitely recommend making time for some quiet time on the hammock, a trip to Ithaca, and trying the cheese trail-- a perfect complement to the wine trail. We can't wait to come back...

Recommended for: adventure seekers, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you to Jennifer G. for taking the time to write such a nice review, we truly appreciate it! Also, thank you for the recommendation to your friend who has now booked with us.

We are always striving to improve our guest's experience and comfort, so that they want to make us their Keuka Lake destination.

All the best,
Matt & Robbie

Wonderful Birthday Celebration

Review submitted: October 2, 2011   Date of arrival: September 29, 2011

It was my year to pick an overdue 40th birthday location...the cottage, area and activities were beyond wonderful. Thank you Matt and Robbie for making our stay so memorable (and the special surprise). My sister, dear friend and I laughed all weekend while enjoying the cottage and its surroundings. Hope to be back to visit (I'm going to spread the word too).
