You can stay right at the cottage and play in the yard, hike the trails, swim off the dock, play on the beach, fish, sing by the campfire, and enjoy the lake views including the bluff! Or you can make a quick trip to shop at the historic Village Square of Hammondsport, visit the wineries (all around the lake), or see the many other attractions listed further on (See Activities & attractions).

About the Owner
Hello! We grew up in the Rochester area and met at Kodak. My husband's family rented for several years on Keuka Lake, but I had never seen it until he brought me to his family's rental cottage. We continued to rent for a few years, then we bought our own cottage. Unfortunately, my husband's division moved to Texas and with the Rochester economy the way it was, we felt we had to go. We have now lived in Texas for over 20 years; have two children (both born in Texas) but have visited the cottage every year. We get to spend 4-6 weeks every year with the children at the cottage. of course, I say children but one is in her last year of college and the other is a senior in High School.

Loved the stay at this very peaceful home. The kids and teens loved swimming and fishing in the lake off of the dock and we couldn't help but to relax as we watched them. We fished from the dock and also took our boats out at the state park.
We enjoyed exploring the nearby town and visiting the wineries.
Evenings were always "at home" We had a campfire each night we stayed and were able to see the "ring of fire" as homes around the lake lite red flares.
Parking with the boats was a little tricky(as it seems to be all along the lake,) but we were able to park two boats in the drive and two trucks across the road.
Joanne was very helpful and quick to respond to any emails or texts.
The home is comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. We would definitely stay again-hopefully longer next time! Thanks for sharing your cottage with us!
JUST TOTAL PEACE AWESOME
absolutely the week ever. grand kids spent all week in the water either fishing or swimming most amazing spent just sitting and watching the action on the lake certainly looking forward to doing the same this coming summer
We had the time of our life. Our three teenage boys absolutely enjoyed every minute of our stay. They caught a great amount of fish which included Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Rock Bass, Yellow Perch, and Bullheads. It was a little early in the year for swimming for my husband and I but the boys enjoyed their time in the water. The cottage is within driving distance to many local attractions. We went to the Corning Glass Museum where the boys made their own glass pendants, the Curtiss Museum that contains antique planes, motorcycles, cars, and various other items of interest. The males in the family also enjoyed hiking up the Watkins Glen Gorge, go-kart riding, and the car show in Penn Yan. There were many restaurants to enjoy that were reasonable in price. These included all-u-can eat taco night for $10 at the Skyline Trading Post near Keuka Park, The Wagner Restaurant in Penn Yan, their breakfasts are amazing, and .40 wing night on Thursday at The Valley Inn in Branchport. The food was terrific. The cottage is well maintained and has nearly everything you could ask for. Unfortunately it rained three out of our six days there but we still had a wonderful time. Campfires at night were great and the Smores were delicious. I really can't think of anything negative to say about the cottage and our stay. A great time for all. We hope to go back again next year. The one thing that might be difficult for some people is the 58 stairs to get down to the cottage from the road.
Don't come here!......Its mine, all mine!!!!!
Seriously, this place is heaven on earth. We have been here three times....and I hope to continue to enjoy the serenity, simplicity and quaintness of this cottage on Keuka Lake. We are regular Keuka Lake renters and have enjoyed several houses throughout the years. I love Koz's...why? The neighbors are great (only one side and very helpful).The lawn is lake level, the views are great, its very private (below the road), the fishing is amazing and the owners very accommodating. The house 'feels' like a cottage....unpretentious but has everything you need, although the addition of a dishwasher would put my review over the edge! Thanks Don for letting us enjoy your second home.
excellent vacation home
We had the most awesome vacation at this home, we even got married on the water there! so beautiful.. going to sleep with the water lapping at the shore and waking to the most amazing sunrises. could spend forever here!!
From the Owner
“Just take a look at the pictures, and you will see "Why This Property?" It is clean, has everything you need, yet is comfortable. We have a GREAT yard, dock, and beach area! You can dive from the dock, yet we have a great "kiddie" section inside the L shape of the dock where it is only a few feet deep. Our property is a double property. On one side, the neighbors, are an extra 40 feet away. On the other side, there is a 300 foot cove! We are close to Jake's to fuel up your boat and we have a great view of bluff and all of the branches. We update every year. We have lots of comfortable lawn furniture & tables. We have a full size Weber grill, and everything you could want in the kitchen. When we say the cottage sleeps 8, we mean there are BEDS for 8. We have 4 bedrooms which totals 3 full sized beds (one is a sleep number bed), and twin bunk beds. No futons or pull out sofas that we count to make it 8.”

“We have a great fire pit for night enjoyment! When enjoying the fire, you are facing the 300 feet of natural cove and feel like you are all alone on the lake! The views from every single room and the great windows! If you are unfortunate enough to have rain, the windows can stay open or you can stay under the porch and enjoy the rain from there! We have family games, books and DVDs too!”
