If you’re looking for the perfect, private location on Keuka Lake with one of the best views, you have found it at O’Cottage! This one-of-a-kind property is nestled off the end of the private extension of East Bluff Drive on a level lakeside lot. There is no drive-by traffic and no visible neighbors to one side of this lot.

A warm and inviting space greets you as you enter the home into the kitchen. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a glass cook top stove, and granite countertops. You can enjoy the beautiful gas fireplace as you prepare meals and gather with your family and friends. Just off the kitchen is a full bath with tub/shower combo. Two more separate living areas, both tastefully furnished, provide enough space for the entire family to relax. A beautiful set of pine barn doors add an eclectic touch, and can be closed for privacy if the adults wish to gather in one space to chat and enjoy a glass of Finger Lakes wine, as the children play or watch a movie in the third living room.

A staircase off of this room leads to a private bedroom on the 2nd floor. This bedroom features a Queen size bed, and a great view of the lake. The second staircase leading to the 2nd floor is located off the kitchen. The other three bedrooms are located on this side of the house. There are two queen bedrooms; one of the queen bedrooms features a small TV with a DVD player. The third floor has a queen bed and four singles; this is the perfect place to set the kids up, which is what we do. You can enjoy the view of the lake from all three bedrooms! A full bath with shower is conveniently located to these bedrooms.

The lakefront at this property is unlike any other, and where you will want to spend most of your time! With two gradual entrances to the lake, you can wade in the warm, shallow water and children can enjoy the perfect spot for splashing and swimming. A picnic table is located lakeside, where you can gather for meals or a game of cards. This home is located in a prime fishing location, so make sure you bring your fishing poles. Fish off the dock, or take the rowboat out and enjoy the scenery. Relax in the Adirondack chairs and tell stories around a campfire. Watch for shooting stars under the clear night’s sky. Just minutes from local restaurants, wineries and shops, yet set in a location where you can privately enjoy your vacation. O’Cottage is the vacation destination you have been waiting for!

The home was renovated in 2005 and is lovingly maintained and updated each year. This is a smoke-free and pet-free home. If you'd like to see more photos or want to take a walking tour, please visit us on Facebook.

We rent full weeks on a Saturday-to-Saturday schedule during the summer months, which run from the second week of June through Labor Day. Please note that O'Cottage is a seasonal cottage and is closed for the winter from October 31-April 15.

About the Owner

Happily married mom of three, I rent my home when my family is not using it. We lovingly maintain and upgrade the cottage each year. Have been renting my home for over ten years, with many repeat guests who have become our friends.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This property is in the top 10% of the homes on Keuka Lake. We've been renting on Keuka for years and can attest to this without any doubt. The drawback to the lot is that the driveway is very steep, but the owner cautioned us about this, and despite it being scary, we had no issues navigating it in in our 4WD SUV. The home has updated furnishings and thoughtful details, my favorite was the tree branch curtain rods. We absolutely loved the private outdoor shower. The owner was very easy to deal with and very quick to respond to any questions we had. The kitchen does not have a dishwasher, which may be an issue to some, but it was not for us (the owner also told us about that before hand). We had a great time taking long walks, fishing, and enjoying the peace and quiet this special place affords.

This was a last-minute vacation and just the ticket! The owner was incredibly responsive to questions and made the reservation process easy. The house is well-maintained and very comfortable. The location alone is five-star. Thank you!

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

This house is just wonderful!!!! It is in an absolutely beautiful, secluded setting! It has more than enough space for 12 people. The lake front is beautiful. The kitchen is very well stocked. The driveway as advertised is very steep but fine for SUVs.... small cars may have trouble but we had no issues with SUVs. We loved our weekend there and can't thank the owners enough for letting us stay in such a wonderful place!!! We will definitely come again and highly recommend it.

Relaxing, fun, and well worth the drive.

  • 5 of 5

The O'Cottage was awesome.. better than we had imagined. This place is beyond cute! We had everything we needed. Waking up to the water was very tranquil and I would rent this place again in a second. Cleaning up was very easy with the vacuum, and dust pan and broom. It was helpful that we brought our own cleaning spray for countertops and bathrooms. Don't hesitate to book this awesome place!
