House, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
The property is beautiful, the house is very old. You really have to love wood.
Over all, we had a good week, there are lot of amenities around the house, you just have to look in all the cabinets, upstairs and down. We lived on the porch, the view is so beautiful. The location is ideal, everything is close by. Both bathrooms are upstairs. I should have asked more questions because there are a lot of stairs to climb and I have problems getting around. The people 2 doors down had party all night, ending with fireworks, pretty scary and singing on top of their lungs to the wee hours. So we had 3 nights of little sleep. It's not the owners fault. Are main complaint, arriving and finding a note telling us we had to clean the place before we left or hire their cleaning lady. After spending all that money to stay there for a week, we should not have to clean the house afterwards!!! That put a big damper on my week, knowing I had to clean house at the end of it. I get putting things away and picking up after yourself. But after I paid $3200.00 for the week, I think we are owed money for cleaning the house. This is the first time someone has ever told us to clean and we have rented many different cottages over the years!!! So because of this I don't think we will be coming back. If I wanted to clean I would stay home and clean my own house!
Enjoyed the amazing porch and view. Loved the cabin like feel with all the amenities.
Wonderful location on a magical lake
We loved our stay at Kismet. The cottage is located at a place where you not only see the sunset across the widest area of lake Keuka, but you also get the added bonus of seeing the sunrise as well. We found ourselves putting aside plans of day trips to instead just sit on the spacious porch and simply enjoy the view.
Jeff- so glad you and your family enjoyed your vacation at Kismet. It was a pleasure having you all. All the best- Tom Lando
Fabulous, on the lake, cottage!
This is our second, consecutive year, staying at Kismet! It's a fabulous location. Both sunrises and sunsets can be appreciated from the wrap around porch or the dock! The house is stocked with amenities and is a comfortable stay for up to 11 people!
Thank you for your nice response, we are happy you folks enjoyed your vacation. You are welcome to return if you desire. Thanks again- Tom & Hilda Lando
If only we could stay here EVERY year for a week in the summer!
Our family truly enjoyed our stay at Kismet! It was everything we could have hoped for, however, I will admit, we had a cool week so no air conditioning wasn't an issue for us. The rooms stayed very comfortable and there were more than enough fans to help the air circulate. We were a party of 6, one couple and the other 4 singles. We had ample space and the configuration of the bedrooms was a non-issue for us. The porch and dock are simply wonderful! The sunsets were nothing less than magnificent. Tom was quick to address any questions or concerns we had. We even received a complimentary bottle of wine when we arrived, thank you! The proximity to wineries, great wineries, is unbeatable! Overall, the house was clean. Well stocked and was everything it was advertised to be. Thank you for opening your home to us!
Gorgeous view. I felt like I went back in time when I walked into the cottage.
The Lando family have maintained their family cottage beautifully. I love the elements of the past that have remained in the house. The dock was a great place to spend our days and evenings enjoying the beautiful view of the bluff and vineyards on the hill. Mr. Lando was very responsive and dream to deal with.
