About Joe

My wife Michele and I bought this condo following years of searching and dreaming about owning a home on one of the Finger Lakes. Our three children endured spending vacation time looking for the perfect “place on a lake” in the Finger Lakes country. Our children are now adults and we have two new grand babies. Finally, the dream has come true as we bought our condo on Canandaigua Lake. Canandaigua Lake is beautiful and we have always considered the views from Bristol Harbour spectacular. The fact that the Canandaigua region offers a wide variety of activities spanning every season, made this decision easy. Our vision is to offer a vacation get-away to our family where we can generate long lasting memories. Michele and I would like the opportunity to share our vision with you, our guests, so you too can develop your own fond memories of Bristol Harbour and the many offerings of the surrounding region.

Joe purchased this condo in 2014

Why Joe chose Canandaigua Lake

Canandaigua Lake is beautiful and there is so much to do year round. We are delighted to have found a place that has all of our family favorites. In summer, our family loves boating, fishing, water sports and of course golfing. In winter, downhill skiing is exciting and so much fun. The views are spectacular especially in the fall. We have a keen interest in wine and beer making and enjoy visiting wineries and breweries. The Finger Lakes Region offers such a fantastic selection. The food, wine and craft beer choices are amazing. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have found a place with everything we could possibility want all in one beautiful package.

What makes this condo unique

Location says it all. When we read the reviews from previous renters of this condo posted on the prior condo owner’s VRBO page, we realized that this condo is indeed a gem. The reviews were favorable and complimentary, focusing on the comforts, relaxation, amenities, and great views. Once you sit on one of our balconies, listening to the waves hitting the shore 100 feet below, taking in the spectacular views of the lake with the surrounding hills, you will discover the advantage of renting our condo. It is an experience to behold and you will quickly realize why my wife and I decided that this was the location for us, following years of trying to find that “right place on a lake”.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were delighted to spend a weekend in the Finger Lakes, and the stay at this condo was the perfect spot to stay and unwind. There was a great view from both balconies, and it is amazing to wake up to see the mountains and lake. We didn't have time to do a lot of cooking while we were there, but the kitchen had everything we needed. The owner was so thoughtful that he left a bottle of wine and two glasses out for us, which was a very nice touch! There was a very nice wood stove in the living room, as well as nice comfy furniture. We had a blast, and would definitely stay here again!!

Explore Wineries/Museums and come back to all the comforts of home with a spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

We planned a week to visit elderly relatives living in the area and explore wineries. The weather was mostly cloudy and rain but we had an exceptional time ! The condo was so welcoming stocked with basic essentials and thick towels ! We explored the wineries in Canandaigua, Seneca and Cayuga and the covered deck allowed us to enjoy our wines in the evenings. So much to see in Canandaigua /Sonnenberg gardens with so much history in the area; loved the Seward House, Granger Homestead and MacKenzie-Child house. Joe was great . We will definitely be back soon.

Gorgeous condo with a gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a relaxing vacation so we rented this condo. We had been to the area before and loved it and wanted to come back. The condo is great, beautifully decorated, great views from the two balconies, and it has everything you could ever need. The owners have thought of everything! It was immaculate when we arrived. There is lots to do in the area or you can just relax on the balconies or on the beach. Great location! We will definitely be back!

Excellent place to spent a vacation

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to the area with a young infant for a few days. Renting the place was easy and Joe, the owner, made it even smoother with clear and timely instructions and expectations.

The condo is exceptional. It is beautifull appointed, very functional, with a breathtaking view from the balconies. It is located within 15 minutes of shopping and visiting areas. We would definitely return.

Comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We came to enjoy family time at Thanksgiving. The condo was very well equipped for a big dinner. We loved the wood burning stove and looking at the beautiful view. All the personnel touches in the condo added to the homey comfort. Very well appointed. I highly recommend staying here. Owner was very nice and friendly.
