About the property

Water's Edge, 3 Bedrooms, Boathouse, Permanent Dock

Just below the original woodsy one lane road that connected Hammondsport and Penn Yan, sits our cottage on the water. Our very quiet one lane road is ideal for hikers, bikers, dog-walking, and roller-bladers.

Our cottage is hassle-free. No Stairs allows you to unload luggage and groceries quickly and start to relax. We have totally renovated this cottage with all new furnishings, appliances, and decorations.

The kitchen is equipped with all new, water/ice through the door refrigerator, dishwasher, electric stove and microwave. Air-conditioning and heat is provided by the state of the art silent Mitsubishi heat pump system. We have one queen bed, one full bed, and two twin beds configured in bunk beds. There is a Samsung HD flatscreen TV with 250 cable channels for your enjoyment. Wifi is also available.

There is a huge wrap around deck with a partial cover for those inclement days. For your grilling pleasure there is a professional 5 burner propane grill. Also available is plenty of lawn furniture. A fire pit is fun on the beautiful nights. Also a dock with a diving board will please the kids while they are fishing for your dinner. The boathouse is handy for those of you who bring along your boat; it will safely store a small boat.

If your needs are for more accommodations, please see our other property on HomeAway #3804509. We would be happy to combine the two in a package deal for you!

About Bob Guinan

Keuka Lake is a special place for us and we have owned properties there since the late 70's. We moved from Rochester to Tampa Bay, FL in 1990. We now own two cottages side by side and are looking forward to completing our third one in 2015.

Bob Guinan purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Bob Guinan chose Hammondsport

We bought the cottage next door in 2004, renovated it, and loved it so much, we bought this one when it became available.

What makes this cottage unique

Eastside, drive to, near Hammondsport and the wineries, good fishing, enclosed boathouse, and a resort feel.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Yes! Absolutely, I would rate our experience at 5 👍😊 thank you so much.

Thanks so much for sharing your cottage with us. :). We had a wonderful stay! We made it to 7 of the 8 wineries on the wine trail BBQ, along with a half dozen breweries, throw in a few of our favorite wineries that weren't on the ticket..... And I make it sound like were a lot of alcoholics!! Lol...... But seriously, the cottage was very adequate , clean, and somehow the 5 of us made 1 bathroom work , and it worked well! We had a cookout night, and a pasta night and the kitchen was well supplied, except we could of used a pot holder or two, and we couldn't find a cutting board......(just a few ideas)......beds comfy, nicely decorated, bright and airy. :)

But mostly we enjoyed the decks, the dock, and those awesome views!! We shared your business card with my sons friends that own a house on keuka, as they have a large family, and friends and are always looking for something nice for them.

I'll leave you with a funny story...... My son and daughter n law were returning from supper at Olney place, my husband was in the lake and michael thought it would b funny to run and jump in the lake and give him a heart attack....... Michael left his wallet, phone, and wedding ring on the deck railing by the steps ( they parked up above the cottage). After succeeding giving his dad a good scare, he returned to collect his stuff, two chipmunks ran by him, and karma got him! He dropped the wedding ring and watched it roll right down one of the only cracks it could of fell thru...... So it's under your deck by the side door! Now if this was an expensive ring, we certainly would of called you and asked if maybe a board could of been raised, but it was his 3rd!! Lost ring in their 5 years of marriage! A department store bargain!! Lol it was a little big...... They're shopping for another! But one day you might b sitting there in the deck, maybe after a good hard rain.... And see a silver wedding band come rolling into the yard.... And remember our story. :). Thanks again..... And hopefully well be back :)

Wonderful Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to stay at this beautiful cottage on Keuka Lake. We really enjoyed having family stay at the home next door to share our vacation. This home is cozy and bright. Well stocked kitchen and beautiful lake views. Our young children enjoyed the yard off the deck and the beautiful walks along the lake road. We will certainly plan another vacation at this cottage on Keuka. Bob was very attentive to questions and helpful in making our vacation arrangements. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful home with us. Looking forward to another summer trip in the future. ~ The Freeman Family

Perfect for what it is.

  • 5 of 5

We rented both houses. The atmosphere is casual. The best aspects are location on sunny side of lake, proximity to water and breathtaking views. Two families can have a great time together. Cozy and clean. Also big plus is that you can drive your car right to the door.

Great Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Wish we could have stayed longer. Great setting, right on the water, with lake view from living space and deck. Clean, quiet and everything we needed was in Cottage, or available in nearby Hammondsport.

Wonderful vacation at beautiful house on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at the Guinan house on Keuka lake. The cottage is just steps from the lakefront, making it easy to access the lake. Our family of four was greeted with a lovely bottle of wine and welcome note from the Guinans. We had a great time using the kayaks and canoe provided with the house, and appreciated the amenities including the modern kitchen, air conditioning, dishwasher, and large tv for movies. Beds were very nice, and our kids really enjoyed the bunk beds. We used the grill almost every night, and the house is located close to Hammondsport, which was nice for last minute groceries and restaurants. We had a lovely vacation at this lake house and highly recommend it. We will definitely be back!
