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 Keuka Lake

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 :)

great lake cottage

The cottage was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our mini vacation. The location on the lake was lots of fun. We would stay there again.

Wonderful lakeside getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend in October. It was the perfect cottage to stay at for a weekend of wine tasting, eating, and hanging with friends. It was clean and well maintained. The bedrooms were cozy, comfortable, and very quiet. Loved that the living room looked right out onto the lake and that there was plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the lake view. This property has one parking spot where you can pull right up to the house. The other parking spot is on the road above the house. The steps down to the house from the road are quite steep so if you want or need to park two cars close to the house, I would suggest renting the other property by the same owners as you can park two cars by that house. We would definitely rent this house again!
