Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

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) and Esperanza Mansion, 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.), less than half a mile to fine dining at Esperanza Mansion, 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.

Truly a Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This very quaint cottage sits with a perfect view of the lack. We had a very relaxing stay and spent everyday enjoying the lake. The cottage was clean and had everything a family would need. The owner is friendly and very quick to respond to any questions. We created some great memories and look forward to another visit.

Wonderful spot for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED Esperanza Dream. Great location! Great amenities! Our kids loved sleeping on the very comfortable futon in the sunroom and the deck is a lovely place to relax while the kids kayak and paddleboard. I would not hesitate to return to this sweet, well-appointed cottage for future vacations.

We had a wonderful stay.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Esperanza Dream from 7/19-7/23. The cottage was incredibly clean and had all of the extras that were needed. So many dishes and kitchen accessories were truly appreciated. Loved the sunroom and outside deck, especially watching the sunsets and early morning views of the lake. Can't say enough about the dock and swimming area. Loved the kayaks. The canoe, not so much. The owners live a few doors down and were very welcoming. I stopped down to say hello and ended up chatting for a few minutes. They even shared some fresh garden veggies. Would love to come back. Just one side-note( not necessarily a negative)... many stairs to get up / down to the water. Think about it if orthopedically impaired. We are now thinking about retiring to the beautiful Keuka lake area.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your thoughtful review, and glad you had a great stay! The cottage is situated higher than the beach. We have recently added a photo of the steps down to the beach so that guests are not surprised by this. Also, we don't have a canoe on this property, was it borrowed from Ray and Sue? Thanks, Robbie
