About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

The name says it all! 'Whata View' is appropriately named based on the first words expressed by most visitors. This quaint cottage is located at 830A on the east side of beautiful Keuka Lake on Rt. 54. We are about 8 miles from the village of Penn Yan and 10 miles from historic Hammondsport.

This 3 bedroom cottage offers 50 feet of level walk-in beach. A full kitchen and dining area provides all of the amenities you might need. The large double living room offers a spectacular view of Keuka Lake, as seen through large picture windows. There are 2 upstairs bedrooms and close by is a half bath. Our unique family room and bedroom on the lower level with a queen bed and bunks offers even more space for our guests. A convenient full bathroom is located on the basement level. Walk out the sliding glass door on the lower level and you are now under an open porch at lake level. This rporch provides protection from rain or too much sun, and a perfect place to relax, read a book or snooze. From this porch/patio step out onto the level grass lawn or head directly to the water for some fun in the sun! Take the paddle boat out for a ride or maybe you prefer to explore the lake in the canoe that is available for renters to use.

At night...bonfires on the beach! A traditional beach fire pit at water's edge, great for roasting marshmallows, telling ghost stories or just enjoying a romantic evening by the water.

The cottage met all of our needs. The extra room downstairs came in very handy and the covered patio was awesome. Large living room upstairs gave a great view of Keuka Lake. We had a relaxing family weekend.

Great week at what a view

  • 5 of 5

WOW, pics do not do it justice. We have been looking for a place to call our getaway on a yearly basis and think we have found it. Pics do not do it justice on the amount of room available. Only 2 complaints, The Flamingo's are not on the slider and there are no fishing pole holders on the dock. Way to hard holding a cocktail, holding the pole and watching the fantastic sunsets every night on the dock.. Sorry to the Tillmans, you may be stuck with us every year now......

Whata View

  • 5 of 5

This property is ideal for families with small children, as there are 50 feet of flat lake level access. The cottage was very clean and well stocked with all the little extras that you might forget. The open floor plan gave us plenty of space to live and play. The lake-level covered patio is great extra living space. We enjoyed the fire pit, new updated dock, canoe and paddle boat complete with life jackets.

This property is constantly being updated with new paint, furniture and amenities. We enjoyed having the apartment size washer and dryer for the necessaries. The new wall-mounted flat screen TV was great!

This cottage is close to Penn Yan and within walking distance of the Onley Place(small convenience store), which came in handy a couple of times.We also love the quaint little village of Hammondsport. Of course the numerous wineries are great places to visit.

We would definitely recommend this rental property. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and addressed all our questions and needs! We had a fabulous time!
