The house is a two and a half story stone Victorian built in 1882 located a few houses from Keuka Lake and a block from the center of the village. The house was built by stone masons brought from Italy to help construct the Pleasant Valley champagne cellars in 1882. During the early years; workers from Curtiss Aircraft building the WW1 Jenny engine roomed there. The plant operated 24/7 and the workers worked 8 on and 8 off. So the beds were rented out for 8 hours at a time. Outside of the house looks pretty much the same as when it was built.
The property is owned by Bob and Millie DeSeyn. Bob is a retired engineer and surveyor and Millie is a retired teacher. Their children are grown with families of their own giving them 7 grandchildren to spoil. After retiring from a local utility Millie and Bob worked in Kuwait for five years, Bob as a defense contractor and Millie as a teacher. Bob is active in the local community serving two years as the village mayor.
Susan DeSeyn purchased this apartment in 1999
Hammondsport has wonderful restaurants, shops, wineries, golfing, the Glenn Curtiss history, horses, and hiking. Add to it this house --- once you have seen it you will no why we chose this as the place to be. Stone houses are special. The quality of the interior is outstanding -- I feel we do not own this house, we are just taking care of it until the next owner gets here!
We first came to Keuka Lake in the late 70's as cottage owners. We enjoyed living on the lake but think the village has all it's benefits plus the life and amenities of a small village. We walk to the post office, grocery store, pharmacy, restaurants, dentist, church, and village square for entertainment. It's a great place to live and a near perfect place to visit.
We loved the apt. We walked into town to eat dinner and then walked to the public swimming dock to take a dip every night. Great little kitchen to eat breakfast every morning before heading out on our adventures! Lovely people.
The Stone Victorian is a lovely place to vacation! The apartment was clean and spacious, Bob is very friendly, and there is plenty to do in and around the town.
We had a wonderful time there! Bob and Millie were very nice, and we liked the apartment a great deal!
My boyfriend and I got to the stone house at 11:30 Friday evening. The place was dirty from the fridge to the bed and we could not stay there that evening. We were not refunded are money and we had to find somewhere else for the weekend. We emailed our issues with pictures to the daughter of the owners and she called my boyfriend the issue and said he was beligerant for saying the place was dirty. I believe at one time the couple probably had a great place but now the daughters have taken over and clearly do not know how to clean or talk to customers. I strongly suggest staying elsewhere. We found 2 very nice places for the rest of our.
We enjoyed our stay at the Garden Apartment. The location was in walking distance to the shops and restaurants in Hammondsport. It also served as a good base location to explore the vineyards around lake Keuka. Having a kitchen made it convenient to eat a good breakfast before heading out for the day. Overall, a good experience!
This was my second stay at the Stone House, and for the second year my vacation was perfect. A beautiful week when the sweet end of summer met the beginning of autumn. This cozy suite provided the perfect home base for our lakeside excursions.
The proximity to both lake and the village makes this a very special vacation rental. Activities available include boating, jet skiing, wine tasting and family fishing!
