About the Owner
3.2 based on 5 traveler reviews
We had a fantastic time and we are going to go back again next year. I spent alot of time on line so I could find a great summer vacation for my whole family, and I found it. My family can't wait to go again next summer. Suzan is a really nice person and helped make our vacation prefect. The house has a great set up, the downstairs is open and lots of room. All of the bedrooms are a great size and the master bedroom has not only a beautiful view but a huge walk in closet. There is a boat launch that you can use next door and a firepit. You also have a 2 car garage that you can use, not many cottages will let you use their garages. Nice large deck.The swimming was great. There was not alot of seaweed and my grandkids had a great place were they could play in the water. We loved the bar/resturant next door. We had a free band playing every Sun. afternoon which we could enjoyed from our deck. The bar was closed early during the week and on week ends it was quiet by 11:00 pm. There was also a few wineries and a brewery very near by. Hammonsport is a very nice small town only 15 mins. away. We have told many of our friends and family that if they want a place to go on Keuka Lake this was a great place. The neighbor next door was freindly and helpful. He gave us alot of great tips where to go fishing.
Suzan does not honor her word, House is mediocre at best
When I made the reservation with Suzan I was told we could come in as early as we wanted on Friday we were the first renters of the year. I also have an email where I was told we could leave late on Monday Memorial day to enjoy the day there. We were 45 minutes away from the house @ 10:40 am I got a phone call that we could not get in until after 2 PM. I was driving a 12 passenger van towing a 24 foot pontoon boat. I told Suzan I had no choice but to at least get the boat off my van. We were told that we could leave the boat at the dock we were not allowed to come in the house if we came up to the house she would not even open the door. The next dealing we had with Suzan was on Monday we were told we could stay till 5 PM but needed to stay outside when she got there we were outside in the yard eating lunch she was all upset that we had our lunch food spread about the table. As she walked around the yard she came back all upset that the kids left crackers on the grass and expected them to pick them up, I went to see what she was talking about there was 1 1/2 cheezit on the grass I picked them up. Suzan made our family so uncomfortable we left when she came. Now about the house: I paid Suzan almost 2x the price she list it as, we do an extended family vacation at least 1x a year and have rented many places in N Y paying around 1/2 of what she charged a night, In Disney we had a 4 bedroom presidential condo and the Florida Keys we had a 3 bedroom both were 1/2 of what Suzan charged, In Cape Cod we a 4 bedroom / 4 bath on a lake for less than Suzan charged per night all rented using VRBO. Problems with this house no A/C with all the windows open and ceiling fans going we had solid coconut oil turning liquid. Old appliances from the 80s, as someone else said in the loft an OLD sofa all ripped up with a cover over it, old wooden kitchen chairs one was so wobbly my husband that weighs 210# sat on a chair during dinner he ended up on the floor hitting his elbow, when Suzan came on Monday she yelled at me about a broken chair never asked if my husband was ok after I told her he hit his elbow. Internet is slow it is DSL. The grill is charcoal and small not big enough for 8 people, you have to supply your own charcoal. The water for the house comes right out of the lake you can not drink it, Suzan does not provide drinking water. The dock needs resurfaced 2 of my grandkids got slivers in their feet. To be continued:
Beautiful house and great fishing
House was beautifully decorated and ample living space. House was located just south of the bluff and was a great location for lake trout fishing and was more than pleased with the results. Also fly fishing was great for bass just off shore. Another plus was accessing the house without ascending or descending numerous stairs in the process. A nice added feature was access to a 2 bay enclosed garage which is rarely heard of when renting. There is a nice weed free swimming area for small children and also a floating dock located in front of large deck in front of house. My family had a great time and looking forward to next year to enjoy another week at beautiful Keuka Lake. Suzan was a very gracious host and made our stay very enjoyable and would highly recommend this rental to family and friends.
Spacious with a nice water front.
We paid a prep fee but the house did not appear to be well prepped for our arrival. The throw rugs were dirty and there were used towels and soaps left in the bathrooms.No cleaning supplies. Upon arrival I had to sweep and clean.The only source of heat was a pellet stove which we were told not to use and it was rainy and cold when we arrived at 7:00pm. Thankfully the weather improved the next day.The dish washer would not stop cycling. There were some small repairs that needed fixing. The upstairs beds were very uncomfortable and old, making it difficult to get a good nights rest. The overstuufed sofa in the loft was torn underneath the slip cover and shabby. The charcoal grill needs to be replaced. A gas grill would be better. We did not cook out.The owner was made aware of these things. The manager ,when called was not available. On the positive side; the house has a very nice great room facing the water and provides a beautiful view. it is very spacious. The deck is beautiful and big enough to accommodate a large group. The garage provided great storage and extra parking. This house would be a good rental in summer. In sum, it could have been cleaner, and the beds need to be replaced with newer mattresses. A beautiful lake front and plenty of room inside and out.
Great place -but---
Very nice house -spacious, bright and airy. But the music from the restaurant next door is LOUD and goes on until late hours on Sunday, Thursday and Friday - (not much sleep on those nights.) Also, there is no wireless wi-fi, only an Ethernet cable that has to be plugged into your computer and the refrigerator's ice maker is not hooked up. We loved the house, access to the lake and the great view. I would definitely recommend it for those might have a hearing loss.
