About the property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Welcome to Lakecrest Manor on beautiful Keuka Lake in the heart of New York's Finger Lakes Wine Country, just four miles south of the village of Penn Yan and only a short walk from the campus of Keuka College. Lakecrest Manor consists of the 'Manor House' and the 'Bungalow' and is perched on the crest of 190 feet of private 'walk-in' lake frontage with shale beach. Lakecrest Manor is perfect for small family reunions.

The Manor House sleeps eight and has three bedrooms (4 twin beds, 1 king, and 1 double bed), two full bathrooms (one with tub/shower, and one with shower), and a fully equipped kitchen. The living room has a wood-burning fireplace, HDTV with digital cable service and DVD player, and AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo system. A large, attached deck with two picnic tables is right on the water's edge.

The recently remodeled (2007) Bungalow sleeps up to four, and is right next door. It has a loft/bedroom (queen-size bed), full bathroom, and an eat-in kitchen. The living room has HDTV with digital cable service and DVD/VCR players, and a futon that folds out to a full size bed. There is a private deck with picnic table and deck chairs off the kitchen. The loft also includes a sitting/reading/nursery area, and a separate TV in the sleeping area.

The property also features a ~50' dock, a swimming raft, 2 charcoal barbecue grills, a fire ring on the beach, 2 canoes, 4 kayaks, and a row boat.

Keuka Lake, with its unusual Y-shape, is 20 miles long, up to 2 miles wide, and boasts 60 miles of shoreline. With an elevation of 715 feet above sea level, it is almost 200 feet deep at it's deepest point. It has a scenic bluff rising over 700 feet above lake level between the two branches of the Y. Lakecrest Manor is located on the west side of the east branch of the Y on East Bluff Road, approximately 4 miles south of the village of Penn Yan.

Keuka Lake is known for its natural beauty. It is one of the cleanest of the Finger Lakes, and is an excellent sport fishing lake, featuring wild lake trout, bass, and perch. In the Summer, the lake warms to the upper 70s and low 80s, making it perfect for swimming, tubing, waterskiing, or just floating peacefully in the water.

The Finger Lakes Wine Country is second only to California for the number of award winning wineries, with well over 50 wineries around Keuka, Seneca, and Cayuga Lakes. The hillsides surrounding Keuka Lake are dotted with numerous vineyards, and dozens of wineries are within a 30 mile radius of Lakecrest Manor. There are also 5 microbreweries within a short distance, and a micro-distillery about 30 minutes away just outside of Watkins Glen.

For the shopper, the Finger Lakes region abounds with antiques, local arts and crafts, and Mennonite/Amish handcrafted furniture. The Windmill Flea Market just south of Penn Yan brings dozens of local vendors together every Saturday from late Spring until late Fall. Don't forget to visit the Waterloo Premium Outlet mall with over 100 premium outlet stores just a short drive away, and for the outdoorsmen, not far from Waterloo is the Finger Lakes Bass Pro Shop in Auburn. For a little excitement, try Finger Lakes Thouroughbred Racing and Gaming, just a few miles north of Canandaigua. Interested in the complete culinary experience? Check out the New York Wine and Culinary Center, also in Canandaigua.

Why Doug Bugner chose Keuka Lake

Perfect location: a little over one hour drive from our home, right on the water with 190 feet of frontage, great for fishing, swimming, and water sports, plenty of 'elbow room' and privacy, and dozens of award-winning wineries within a 20-mile radius.

What makes this villa unique

Boating, water sports, swimming, fishing, entertaining, grilling, wine tasting, visiting farm markets, or just hanging out on the deck.

Lakecrest Manor

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect week at Lakecrest Manor with family and friends. The children went swimming in the lake every day while the adults enjoyed kayaking. All agreed that it was the most relaxing and tranquil vacation ever! The owners were wonderful to work with and provided easy communication both before and after our stay. The property was well stocked, well maintained and suitable for such a large group. We loved being right on the water and looked forward to our visit from "big bird" each day. We will definitely be back!

Lakecrest Manor

  • 5 of 5

Lakecrest Manor was a wonderful , well kept jewel of the finger lakes. The cottages are well maintained, everything worked well. The beach is large enough for any lakeside purpose, the decks and patios were large enough and provided nice views of the lake. We will rent again.

College Reunion at Lakecrest Manor

  • 5 of 5

Perfect week long stay at Lakecrest Manor. 6 College Friends spent the week at this beautiful lake cottage leading up to our 35th College reunion. We enjoyed the extremely well stocked, large, clean accommodations this perfect lakefront cottage offers. The owners were extremely easy to work with and the cottage far exceeded our expectations. We spent the week touring wineries and enjoying Keuka college activities (an easy walk to the campus). We Loved Lakecrest Manor and sincerely appreciate the many memories we made there. We will definitely be back for future visits to the Finger Lakes-and of course future college reunions! Thank you for sharing this perfect cottage with us! Signed: 6 College Friends-Class of 1980.

Finger Lakes Wine Tasting Trip 2013

  • 5 of 5

Every year our group of 10 travel to the Finger Lakes for 3 days of wine tasting and relaxation. This year we decided to rent a house rather than stay at an hotel, and we couldn't have made a better choice. Lakecrest Manor offered everything and more. The owners were very easy to deal with and the property was exactly as it was portrayed it to be. Being so close to the water was fantastic, and watching the moon shine over the lake while sitting by the outdoor fire each evening was breathtaking. Coffee and breakfast on the outdoor deck watching the sun rise is spectacular. I highly recommend Lakecrest and all it has to offer. We will definitely return for our next weekend stay.

We love this place!!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location for old friends to get away from daily pressures - to laugh, eat, and reconnect. We have tried many cottages around Keuka Lake over the years and Lakecrest Manor is our favorite! 12 can sleep comfortably, with ample bathrooms, kitchen space, and all the necessary amenities. The large table makes group meals a pleasure. Everything we could possibly need is provided - clean and in good repair. We love this place!!!

Lakeside living doesn't get any better than this

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lakecrest Manor for a long weekend and hated having to leave. We had 1 couple and 3 friends so there were ample beds for us to use. The Manor house alone had 2 bathrooms which came in handy with 4 women. The decor of the house was very cozy yet the layout gave the feeling of an expansive estate (we even nicknamed one of the bathrooms "The North Wing"). The blue heron made several appearances throughout our stay and enjoying our morning coffee on the deck overlooking the water with him became a regular routine. The neighborhood was so peaceful and quiet and provided an excellent setting for evening walks and nighttime fireside chats. The town of Penn Yan was only minutes away so finding a grocery store for S'mores supplies was a breeze. We attended a concert in Canandaigua during our stay (only a half hour away) and were glad to have our lakeside respite to return to afterward. The owners supplied us with everything we needed; not only in the house but great information about the area and things to do as well. The weather was a bit chilly for swimming but the walk-in grade of the shale beach and the floating dock would have been perfect for just that! We definitely plan on returning in the near future.
