Overview

About the property

Cottage with stunning lake views, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, sleeps 4

Beautiful Keuka Lake is the most picturesque of New York's pristine Finger Lakes, in the heart of the wine country. It is 20 miles long, boasts about 60 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of 186 feet. It has become the top destination in the Finger Lakes Region.

Located within a short walking distance to Keuka Lake State Park (with boat launch and many hiking trails), our charmingly rustic, very clean cottage is situated on a quiet, private road with spectacular views overlooking the northwest branch of the lake. This cottage is perfect for a couple or a small family.

Sit back, unwind and enjoy the gorgeous romantic sunsets on 50 feet of lake frontage next to your crackling beach bonfire. Swim, fish, or take the rowboat out for a leisurely ride. Or simply take in the beautiful scenery from the comfortable patio chairs on the partially covered deck after a relaxing day of wine tasting.

The cottage is 7 miles from Penn Yan, 1 mile from Basin Park Marina (boat rentals, etc.), a very short stroll to Keuka Lake State Park, close to the famous Keuka Lake Wine Trail for tastings and tours, hiking, golfing, gift shops, antiques, many restaurants and much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great to experience the lake and surrounding areas this time of year.



The cottage is perfect, quite a change from the "trapper's cabin" remembered from my youth spent just two doors down Esperanza from 1951-1960. Family moved out west. Forty year anniversary surprise trip from my wife. I have not been back since 1963, and she had never been further East than Montana. All my stories were validated and connections made with relatives and family friends.



Thank you so much for this, it was perfect.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cozy, well equipped cottage on beautiful Keuga Lake. The deck provided a relaxing place to watch beautiful sunsets after a day of wine tasting. We are already planning another stay at this awesome cottage in the near future.

Calm, cozy, and relaxing stay in the Finger Lakes

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully situated cottage, with lake access, and perfect location to explore some of the best parks and wineries in the Finger Lakes. We loved kayaking, grilling, and sitting on the deck enjoying the beautiful lake view. Cottage was clean and comfortable and so quiet! We loved our stay - highly recommended.

The house was clean, well stocked with essentials, and perfect for a weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

This property was so cozy and charming. Proximity to the lake made for a stunning view and access to kayaks allowed us to explore the lake as well. We couldn't have asked for a better house or better hosts for our short vacation.
