Prime property with spectacular views:

Romantic, rustic home that sleeps 8+ with 2.5 baths on two floors. 3 private bedrooms on the 2nd floor and 1 master King on the 1st floor with spectacular views. Property is located in the heart of Keuka Lake's prestigious east side, highlighting morning coffee sunrises from oak Adirondack chairs at the end of the dock, and spectacular sunsets from any of the several deck levels including the spacious 100' dock that juts out into the lake facing the magnificent and photogenic Bluff.

About Keith Clark

I am a Global Yacht Delivery Captain but born and raised in the Keuka Lake area. I have lived in many parts of the USA and traveled extensively throughout the world. I have seen many wondrous places in my travels, but the one true place I love more than any other, and the one place I will always call home, is "No Such Place" on gorgeous Keuka Lake.

Keith Clark purchased this house in 1981

Why Keith Clark chose Keuka Lake

Keuka Lake is magical all year long but particularly so in the summer! Hammondsport on Keuka Lake is the source of the USA's first registered winery and now has nearly 20 fantastic and romantic wineries all around the lake. Harvest time is uniquely festive and fun for all and this happens spontaneously within the beauty of the incredible surrounding hills and fall foliage, a treat for the spirit and soul each and every year!

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location is the key to real estate, as they say, and 'No Such Place' fit's that phrase perfectly since it is ideally situation on the lake with strategic access by road and water to all of the key surrounding towns. The 3-branch and bluff views from the property in summer, spring, winter or fall are mesmerizing and soothing for one's spirit, and simply amazing for one's eyes to behold. Needless to say, a great place to bring your camera...!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I live in the Cleveland area and we both have two jobs and therefore virtually no life it seems away from home. But, we have been talking for about two years about going to Keuka Lake again, where we had first met at the famous Switzerland Inn. We finally took the plunge and signed up for a 2-Night stay at, "No Such Place," which is located less than a half mile from where we first met at the Switzerland Inn.



We had SUCH A GOOD TIME at NO SUCH PLACE!!! There are almost no words to describe it. We cried with joy as we saw the same view of the incredible Bluff, had breakfast at Artisan's Bakery in quaint and wonderful Hammondsport, the lunch and an incredible tour at Bully Hill. (Best Brunch EVER!). Dinner of course the first night at the Switzerland Inn but the next night we had an incredible dinner at the Bistro on the Hammondsport Square!!! We highly recommend all these places.



It was November and the trees were past peak, but still so wonderful. The sky was blue and the air cool but we rented Kayak's at Reagan's for $25 per day!!! We thought that was an awesome value. (Call them or check out their web site at reaganskayak). We did a couple of wine tours on Keuka Lake but also did a FRISKY Wine Tour on nearby Seneca Lake. Both Awesome. Oh, did I mention that we kept calling the owner to ask for "Just one more day"? We did this 3 days in a row...lol and then ran out of excuses as to why we couldn't go back to work! Hope our employers are not reading this...hahahaha...



Thank you Keuka Lake, thank you No Such Place, thank you wonderful owner who's name I probably shouldn't mention here! We took away more than just wonderful memories, and we'll be back again soon!

Beautiful views, convenient, nice home, good owner

  • 5 of 5

Me, my wife, 2 daughters and son-in-law spent a wonderful Mother's Day weekend here. It was exactly what we were looking for.

The house is in great condition, very clean, and very well stocked with items you might need during the stay ... things like dishes, utensils, pots, pans, coffee makers, mugs, drinking glasses (including plenty of wine glasses, of course :-)), and even a wide selection of cooking spices.

The outdoors is the best part, though, especially the dock that goes out into the lake, with chairs to hang out, visit, and soak in the lake's beauty. We spent A LOT of time out there; it was beautiful. If the weather doesn't cooperate for your whole stay, which we did have a few showers, there was plenty of space and seating on the upper deck, and below the deck at lake level, both of which were covered, and also had great views of the lake. There are 2 good sized gas BBQ grills, of which we used one our first night to grill a nice meal after we all got there from different locations.

There are 2 showers, so we weren't waiting long on each other to get ready to start our days ... and even though I'm sure the place is on a pump, we had no water pressure problems with both showers going at once, nor did we run out of hot water ... so it is obviously well planned out and set up for bigger groups.

The property is in a convenient location near Hammondsport (but not a lot further to Penn Yan either). It sits on a small road far enough from the main highway so that it was extremely peaceful and quiet.

Last, but certainly not least, was how responsive and helpful the owner (Keith) was; both before our arrival, and when we had questions while we were there. I never waited more than a few hours for him to respond to messages that I sent to him through the HomeAway app, and in most instances it was only a matter of minutes for me to hear back from him. He also sent us a lot of material ahead of time ... not just details about the property, but also about things in the area (things to do, locations of stores, lists of good restaurants, wineries nearby, etc.) ... we found them very helpful.

I would highly recommend No Such Place as place to stay, and Keith as someone to rent from. We all had a great time, and would definitely rent again if our travels take us back to Keuka Lake again in the future.

Great place!

Amazing view

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this lake house. It was in a great location, easy to get to wineries and breweries on Keuka lake and Seneca lake. Close to Watkins Glen. The view was beautiful and the weather was just warm enough for us to enjoy the back deck. There were three couples in our party and having 2 1/2 baths was great. We used two of the three bedrooms upstairs and it was nice to have the half bath up there. My in-laws had the bed downstairs and it was nice for them not to need to use the stairs.

A restful spot on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at No Such Place. The weather was not the most cooperative, but we did fit in some kayaking and a bonfire with s'mores. During this same weekend there was an annual wine festival at Hunt Country Vineyards and so we enjoyed that, as well as tasting other wines and visiting other breweries in the area.

The kitchen was certainly well stocked with appliances, dishes, and cookware. We we're a large group and there was good gathering space for us all.

Keith was always quickly responsive to all of my inquiries, a gracious host. We had a great weekend!

We were very happy at No Such Place. The location is perfect and the house is comfortable and relaxing. My wife slept until 8:30 she was so relaxed. Kids loved their own rooms, fishing, and riding our rental boat. We will be back.
