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.

Quaint and clean with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

I have no complaints whatsoever! The property was so clean and everything in and outside the home was as described in the photos and description, unlike some homes I've rented in the past. The view is absolutely stunning and certain to provide a great summer vacation. Unfortunately we chose a chilly time to visit so we weren't able to take advantage of the great outdoor features. There are great local restaurants in Hammondsport and Penn Yan and nearby Watkins Glen State Park was beautiful. Also we visited Keuka State Park (5 min away) and saw a coyote. The property is also stocked with tons of items that you inevitably forget. Thanks again for the clean and welcoming home and for a bottle of wine to welcome us to the great Finger Lakes!

An Absolutely Adorable Cottage in a Perfect Locati

  • 5 of 5

I truly couldn't be more happy with the experience my husband and I had at this cottage. We visited the Finger Lakes to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and we couldn't be more pleased with how perfect the accommodations were! Everything about this cottage spoke to me from the location to the vintage decor and shabby chic feel I was in HEAVEN oh and don't get me started on how incredible the view was! It was a sad day when we packed up to go home, I think we will certainly return in the future!!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just stayed at this cottage for a mini vacation and it was wonderful. The cottage is perfect for 2 people and we were lucky enough that the weather cooperated and we were able to spend some time on the little beach near the lake as well. The cottage was very clean when we arrived and looks just like the pictures. It was an easy ride to Penn Yan for anything that we needed to grab like groceries etc. We also spent plenty of time exploring the wineries/breweries and found that the cottage was a good central point for a lot of great places. We had a great time and wish we never had to leave!

Keuka Lakeside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this charming cottage on Keuka Lake. We were lucky to have enjoyed the peak foliage season and the views from the cottage were spectacular! The cottage was very clean and cozy, and we were welcomed with a bottle of wine from one of the local wineries.

Very comfortable furnishings and the décor was very nice. We used the rowboat and enjoyed further views from the middle of the lake. Also a campfire with s'mores under the stars capped off one evening. It is a good location for visiting the wineries around the lake, and Hammondsport is a short 30 minute scenic drive and is a very cute town with interesting shops and restaurants. The deck is very nice for enjoying morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. There is also a covered part of the deck with a picnic table and grill if needed. The owners are a short distance away from the cottage, and were very pleasant and told us if we need anything to just contact them. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.
