You'll hate to leave!

All the comforts of home; all the special features of a lakeside retreat. My family and my friends have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Whitby Cottage. Our appreciation to the owners, who share this gem of a property in a friendly, welcoming manner. Hope to return sometime soon!

Great family vacation!

Review submitted: August 26, 2013   Date of arrival: August 17, 2013

We have rented several homes on Keuka Lake over the years and Whitby Cottage did not disappoint. There was plenty of room inside to cook, relax, and sleep. The home was well-stocked and clean. The outdoor space is where we spent most of our time and we thoroughly enjoyed the large dock for fishing, relaxing, and docking our boat. Our kids used the provided paddle boat several times! The only suggestion I would make would be to repair the screens on the two exterior doors so that the doors could be left open without worry of bugs getting in the house.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers

Owners response: Thanks for the feedback, especially on the little things that make a difference, like a screen that has come loose. We are glad our renters thoroughly enjoy what Whitby Cottage and Keuka Lake have to offer. I understand the bass fishing has been particularly good this summer!

first, second and third time's a charm

Review submitted: August 19, 2013   Date of arrival: August 3, 2013

We love Keuka! We live at a lake in VA and trailer our boat to Keuka for our precious week's vacation 8 hours away. We've been to this amazing lake 9 times for our family vacation and have found our perfect cottage! This was our 3rd consectutive time at Whitby Cottage and have never stayed anywhere else more than once. The owners are great, as is the house and property. It's in a great location, the cottage is so comfortable, warm and welcoming and the waterfront is terrific. Even the neighbor was wonderful, stopping by to tell us about the Keuka Wine Trail (thanks, Carolyn!)
We go-carted in Penn Yan, visited Garrett Chapel on the Bluff, boated to the Switz for lunch and Lakeside for dinner, walked a gorgeous gorge, tubed, wakeboarded, fished (and ate a great fish dinner - get your temporary license, totally worth the $), wine tasted, antiqued at Wild Goose Chase on the hill, shopped for gifts and ate and had ice cream in Hammondsport. We enjoyed the stars and the fire pit and laughed and soaked up the beautiful weather and view of the bluff.
We had one small issue with the grill (first issue ever) and it was taken care of within 12 hours by our terrific caretaker! (basically overnight)
Charming, Relaxing, Beautiful, Comfortable, so many wonderful memories made at Whitby!
I gush....I have never met the owners but would love to toast them with a glass of Finger Lakes Wine! Cheers!

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

Owners response: Wow! What a nice compliment for Whitby Cottage. We are so pleased to share the benefits of Keuka Lake and the Cottage with others. Repeat renters are proof that we have a gem on the most beautiful of the Finger Lakes! Thanks so much for the feedback!!
