About the property

Private Year Round Home , 3 Bedrooms 2 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy the privacy and luxury of 'Water's Edge.'

As you walk onto the large deck, which is over the lake, you relax to the sound of waves gently lapping the shore beneath you as you relax on the wrought iron bar height patio set that allows you unobstructed lake views above the deck railing. Water’s Edge had an addition completed in 2016 that transformed the cottage into a year-round house with over 1,500 square feet of living space and every room is lakefront. Appreciate the new central air conditioning on those hot summer days. Enjoy the open floor plan integrating the kitchen, dining and family rooms. All with custom cherry wood work. Enjoy the high-end kitchen’s cherry cabinets, Corian countertops and stainless steel appliance all while overlooking the lake and partially covered deck. Relax in family room, only ten feet from the lake, with custom gas fireplace, cherry wood surround cabinets and entertainment center, which includes a Smart TV over the mantel, (can stream your Netfix, Amazon etc. accounts) BlueRay/DVD player and Yamaha receiver that has Bluetooth so you can play Online music from any of your Bluetooth enabled devices such as laptops or smartphones. The dining table, overlooking the lake, seats eight. The private beach area on the south and north end of the cottage is perfect for wading into the lake or launching rafts and kayaks.

Water’s Edge is located on a quiet side street- ideal for a morning run, taking an evening stroll or maybe a family bike ride.

Your mornings can start with a cup of coffee as you soak in a beautiful sunrise. Evenings can begin with the moon rising across the lake and a glass of your favorite local wine in hand.

Enjoy over 107 feet of crystal clear waterfront- wade in from the private natural shore or jump off the end of the dock and use the swimming ladder to do it again. Enjoy gathering around the fire pit in the evenings.

Bedrooms are on the second floor. The master Bedroom has a queen bed beneath a vaulted ceiling. Views of the lake abound, with wall-to-wall windows on three sides. The master bath has a double vanity and large walk in shower with white subway tile. The second bedroom has a twin over full bunk bed and a lakefront view. The third bedroom has a trundle bed with two twins that can make one king bed, and has a lakefront view as well. The second upstairs bathroom has a deep soaking tub with shower. A half bath is on the first floor.

Kids will enjoy great fishing right from the dock, with plentiful small and largemouth bass, perch and bluegill.

Golfers will love the golf course in Penn Yan, and everyone can enjoy the many restaurants that surround Keuka lake, which offer great dining and enjoyable entertainment on many weekends.

This lake home is perfect for a couple’s romantic retreat of a family vacation. Keuka Lake is a truly a getaway and we hope you love it as much as we do.

Lovely, comfortable and fun

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a cottage on the water with a master bedroom where the morning sun would wake us. What a beautiful master suite with windows on three sides! So nice, in fact, that it was a great place to read in the afternoon with a breeze coming through the windows or just sit and enjoy the view across the lake in the evening. The remodel was a complete success. The kitchen is striking. There’s lots of counter space and it works well even with several cooks. The cabinets have everything you might need. We liked the proximity to those on the deck while cooking. Twice we had guests and the two other bedrooms both with lake views were enjoyed by everyone. The back steps may look daunting, but the large landing and wide stairs made toting down two kayaks quite doable for two sixty-somethings. We really enjoyed evenings by the fire pit on the beach, and it was so nice that the wood was provided so that we didn’t need to purchase the high priced 4 packs and maybe run out. Water’s Edge was a great place to spend eight days.

Fantastic Keuka country house

  • 5 of 5

Our family is from Penn Yan and the new tradition is to meet for a reunion each year! This 100% remodeled house was exactly what we were looking for. On top of if, the owners are fantastic, easy to get a hold of and locals! We feel blessed to have been able to stay exactly on the waters' edge. In fact, the master is an awesome 180 degree full window view over the water. We are definately coming back. We were glad to meet the neighbors and their children from Denmark. Long time Yates county Danes! Good work Mike!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing at Keuka Lake for the past four years. I have to say the Water's Edge helped to make our recent two week stay one of the most memorable vacations we have ever had. This home has been recently remodeled with high end appliances, beautiful master bath and bedroom, views of the lake from every room - even the bathroom. The deck is actually OVER the lake. The dock is wide enough at the end for several chairs and had whips for our boat. It was a perfect location - near the college, close to Penn Yan and Seneca Farms Ice Cream, the Switz Inn, and even Hammondsport is only a short drive. The street is very quiet and fairly level, great for walks and bicycling. Our grandchildren visited over the weekend - we had a blast boating, tubing, fishing, swimming, catching crayfish, hiking, grilling, smores at the firepit, and watching the moon rise on the deck. I would recommend this property without reservation.

The Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

There is a reason why we're coming back to Shale Beach and this wonderful cottage; the Perfect Getaway from it all. My wife and I, two sons and two nephews had a fantastic week of fishing, swimming, relaxing and just enjoying the scenery. Watklins Glen State Park is a great day out along with the winery choices. My boys and nephews are 21 and 19 respectively, and insisted on coming back here. That says alot! Great owner who is a phone call away if needed. The cottage is beautiful and extremely clean. I highly recommend staying here.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two young daughters, and I spent a week in August in this great cottage. The house is compact but very comfortable. The front room has great views of the lake through its three walls of windows. You must go through the second bedroom to get to the lakefront bedroom. Small shale beach, large concrete waterfront terrace, and dock all give great access to the water. A moored swimming platform, shallow beach, and clear water invite one to swim. A fire pit, deck with table and chairs, and lounge chairs on the terrace give plenty of opportunities to enjoy yourself out of the water as well. Penn Yan is only a few minutes away, with shopping, dining, go-carts, and more. Location is also perfect for visits to much of the other Finger Lakes and attractions. Owner is a pleasure to deal with.

Water's Edge

  • 5 of 5

We rented Water's Edge for the third week in August. I had no difficulty finding the property as one of the previous reviewers did. The weather was beautiful and the water was perfect. I was pleasantly surprised with how clear the water was (I expected more plant life since it was shallow). The cottage was clean and tidy when we arrived. As an added bonus, there were many inflatable rafts and chairs for us to use, as well as the moored dock. We spent most of our time at the house (although there is plenty to do in the area), which was relaxing and peaceful. The owners were great with communication and delivered all that was promised. We live about an hour away and our nieces and nephews visited us. We found the house to be very child friendly with a shallow wade in area. There is considerable privacy and the house was located in a nice residential area. As an added bonus, we were visited by ducks daily! I highly recommend these owners and this property.
