About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 9 Sleeps

Situated on the renowned East Bluff of Keuka Lake at 7545 East Bluff Drive (formerly 757), our cozy 3 bedroom, 2 bath lakeside cottage offers 1100 square feet of Keuka Lake charm with modern amenities.

Wake up to beautiful sunrises and enjoy 100 feet of walk-in beach lake frontage. Swim, fish, take the paddle boat for a spin or simply relax in one of the comfortable Adirondack chairs on the large dock. There is plenty of room for family and friends to play around on the grassy yard, beach and patio areas. If the sun gets to be too much, take a break under the partly covered patio. You can also enjoy the deck directly above the covered patio.

Parents, rest safely knowing you can keep an eye on the children from the kitchen and family room. The large windows in the family room offer a spectacular view of the lake and will make you feel like you are sitting on the water! Finish off your day with a camp fire and fall asleep in one of the large bedrooms to the gentle breaking of waves right outside of your window.

The cottage is 7 miles from Penn Yan, 1.5 miles from East Bluff Harbor Marina (boat rentals, etc.), 3 miles South of Keuka College and close to the famous Keuka Wine Trail with tours and tastings, Keuka Lake State Park, lunch and dinner cruises, and many gift shops, antiques, fine restaurants, breweries and golfing.

This was a family vacation. My husband is from Hammondsport and dreamed of the day we'd be able to stay for a week in a cottage on Keuka Lake! There were 8 of us, 5 adults and 3 teenagers. The place was comfortable for all of us. We really enjoyed sitting on the patio an drinking our morning cup of coffee. The kids loved being able to go right out the door to the lake. We enjoyed a BBQ with family, a pontoon excursion with friends, wine tasting at Bully Hill, a day trip to Niagra Falls and cocktails and appetizers at the Switz.

Michele, the owner, was easy to deal with and answered our questions quickly. All in all I'd sum it up in my Grandson's own assessment, this place is AWESOME!

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Spent a week with extended family. Had a great time. Cottage was clean and bedrooms were large. Dock was great for fishing( caught several 16-18 inch largemouth bass along with a 22 incher!) Swimming and diving off dock was and all day event for the kids( very little weeds). Wonderful shade tree's that allowed you to be out of the sun if you liked. Parking was great plenty of room for 5 cars. All in all a great place to stay. Would recommend to all.

Dual Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We arrived Monday afternoon. Couldn't wait to get into the water. Great week and great cottage. Lots of things to do......swim, boat, fish, float, kayak, and snorkle! We had a blast chasing fish with the snorkle gear we got at Walgreens in Penn Yan. That was a wonderful surprise--water was soooo clear you could see all the way down to the bottom at the end of the dock. There was very few boat traffic all picked up on Friday. The kids loved the free wifi. It kept them busy when they were tired of swimming. We had 5 kids ranging from 9-19. One day we went to Watkins Glen. We loved it! Even took advantage of the parks pool and cooled off after the beautiful hike. It is about a half an hour away. Had ice cream at Seneca Farms--yummy! The boys ate at Doug's Meaner Weiner......they loved it! The girls went to The Windmill. Fun place to walk around for a Saturday morning. Read the brouchures at the cottage...they are full of ideas. That is where we got ours. This place is so wonderful....we packed too much from home not knowing what we would need. Cottage has it all. Marina charges $25 to launch boat or to take it out of lake. We found a little park on Water St. in Penn Yan where you can do it for free...........7ish miles to cottage. I could go on for hours about this place. Wonderful memories! We will definetly come back to this place. Thank you Steve and Michele! Our kids slept all the way home! Going to miss the early morning kayak paddle.........
