About Christine & Ralph
We purchased our cottage in 2016 and set out to immediately renovate and update this cottage built in 1900. We love being near the water and have enjoyed watching our cottage become a second home to our 2 children. It is here that we will always have the memory of our son learning to drive our boat for the first time and our daughter floating around on a big uncontrollable blow up swan. It is clear that lifetime memories are made at the lake. We feel grateful to be able to share our home with you. We hope you will leave with great vacation memories. Best Wishes, Ralph & Christine

Why Christine & Ralph chose Conesus
We chose Conesus lake because it was close to home. It also had a reputation for great fishing and great people. It's a small town. In fact, it's one lake that spans through several towns. When you are at the lake it really is easy to forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You will find a great Italian restaurant (Fratelli's), a general store filled with antiques (Shoreless Acres), a bar/restaurant with live music for adults and ice cream for kids - accessible by boat or car (Beachcomber), and a fun place for kids with go-carting, miniature golf, batting cages, and a fun zone (Minnehan's). Of course, for those days when you just have to have a Wal-Mart or a Wegmans, Geneseo is just 15 minutes away.
What makes this Cottage unique
When we saw this house for the first time we actually didn't consider it seriously. It needed a lot of love and updating. As our search went on, this house was always in the back of our minds. The waterfront was perfect. It was located in a cove and had 75' of waterfront. Not just waterfront, BEACHFRONT! This was truly a bonus since we have children, and we really wanted them to be able to play with shovels and pails, to be able to wade and run in the water. The view from the house was awesome since where we are situated on the cove we can see not only across the lake but down it's length. In the end these things won out. We gave it the love (and sweat) it needed and we couldn't be more thrilled.

Very nice property, clean, well cared for.
Most likely will rent again next summer/fall. Loved it.
Great location and nice property
We had a wonderful experience at the property. Beautiful location, nice house and kept clean. Owners were great.
Gorgeous home and the best property manager!
We have stayed at various rentals around Conesus Lake and this rental was by far the best. The house is beautiful with two large decks to enjoy the lake views. The owners are wonderful! Christine responds to any question quickly and goes above and beyond to make your stay special.
We loved using the kayaks and paddleboat. The fire pit was also a great asset. My kids enjoyed the variety of games in the cottage. The large dining table was perfect for family meals.
Beautiful view, kitchen well equiped.. good size refrigerator. Lots of room..we were very happy here
The openness and setup was perfect on the inside. Multiple decks and yard were perfect!
July 4th week vacation
I have been coming home and staying on the lake for several years. The property was fabulous! Great location, clean & lovey a home and with huge yard. The owners are great, too. My only criticism, is the dock can be a little tricky parking a pontoon boat. The kitchen could use a few more pans and items for cooking & preserving food. We love to cook and the items were somewhat limiting, but we definitely could make due. We can’t wait till next year.
