Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in Branchport - Blacksmith Cove

5 Bedrooms + Loft/Sleeps 12-14 -3 Baths/Hot Tub/Laundry Room & Decks Galore

Imagine morning coffee on your spacious covered deck or sipping coffer in your hot tub looking east overlooking pristine Keuka Lake. Rain or shine, the perfect spot to see amazing lake views. One of our cottages has 3 spacious bedrooms, and the other cottage has 2 queen bedrooms plus a loft! Both have well equipped comfortable living rooms. 16014 also has a hot tub! Cottages are located just three miles from Branchport and a 15 minute drive from either Penn Yan or the quaint village of Hammondsport.(Voted America's Coolest Small Town) The best part is the close proximity to dozens of fantastic Finger Lakes wineries, shopping and great restaurants. This two cottage compound is perfect for large family and friend get etc. Book early, as this type of property is unique! The best part is that we also have additional parking across the road. A rare find on the Finger Lakes! Planning a wedding for 20-30 guests? Why not consider the ceremony and reception right on the spacious deck surrounding the cottages. The views are simply amazing.

Great spot for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Lakeside Cottages on Keuka Lake. The owner was very responsive and concerned of our comfort and needs while we were there. It was an ideal spot for our large family to enjoy. Great deck spaces!

Keuka treehouses was the perfect description of the cottages by one of our guests.

  • 4 of 5

I planned a Keuka vacation with my adult children and grandchildren in hopes that they would enjoy it as much as I did in my childhood. The lovely and comfortable cottages made our inaugural Keuka family vacation a complete success, guaranteed to be repeated. The large decks allowed plenty of space for entertaining as did the lakeside docks and firepit area for enjoying the lake and views. The convenient location to Hammondsport and the vineyards was perfect for exploring the breathtaking landscapes.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your wonderful review of our "treehouses" and look forward to your returning next year for your second annual family reunion. Our lake homes are very special to us, and the fact that others enjoy them means a great deal to us. Keuka Lake and Blacksmith Cove awaits your next visit!

Owner's Response: Come back to see us this Fall! We've added some nice touches to the cottage that we think you'll appreciate! This review was based on just our one lakeside cottage - which is now listed under Keuka Lakeside Darling on the VRBO site. We now sleep 8 comfortably! The Fall colors will be spectacular to see! We're booking up fast - so don't wait too long!

Fairly priced, great location!

  • 3 of 5

This home has such potential. It has three bedrooms containing two double beds and one queen. The kitchen was adequately equipped for a simple meal. The real problem with this home is the spider webs in every single corner and the dust. Even the bed linens were dusty. Not sure why it wasn't freshened up before we arrived. I pulled the vacuum out of the closet to freshen up the place, but there were no attachments to do corners. I guess thats why it hasn't been done! The living room had two leather chairs with ottomans for a home that sleeps six!?! We took shifts relaxing in the living room by twos as the other four sat on two wicker chairs brought out from the bedrooms, or arranging an ottoman against the wall with one of the large pillows from the chair. The kitchen table only had 3 chairs. The location was great. The front porch was very enjoyable, as we ate breakfast there; there was plenty of table seating there. The owner is super duper nice. She even went to the store to get milk for us and refused payment. I don't want to scare anyone from renting this unit. Maybe you should request that the cob webs be removed before you arrive!

Owner's Response: We sincerely appreciate your extensive review of our property. We have reviewed your comments regarding "spider webs" with our cleaning staff, and have personally done a walk-thru to make certain that the spider webs that you referred to were mostly cobwebs...which are not created by spiders. Two of the bedrooms, the living room and the bathroom were painted just 3 weeks ago (with a thorough cleaning to walls and baseboards, but we sometimes find, for some reason, the cobwebs appear almost overnight near the lake. Re: pillows...I take my own with me everywhere. I'm picky about pillows too! Kitchen reference: I just had purchased a brand new set of 3 skillets, and had on hand several aluminum (throw away) baking pans, pots and pans and a large glass rectangular baking pan for lasagna or other casserole-type meals. The majority of our guests grill on the beach, but have not had anyone mention that the kitchen was inadequate for any type of cooking. Oven/range and microwave work well, per my latest inspection. Admittedly, it is not a gourmet kitchen by any stretch...but we have had some awesome meals prepared there by many of our friends and guests! Seating: The majority of our guests utilize the covered deck facing the lake which has seating for at least 12 people. The bedroom wicker chairs are intended as chairs to be moved around the cottage as needed. Glad you did that. The cottage is not huge, but generally our guests are out on the deck, at the beach...or out for most of the evening so we've not had this issue arise before. We notice that many of our Spring and Fall guests eat most of their meals out - or eat outside at the picnic table on the deck... which seats eight. Re: linens. I personally washed all bed linens and put them on the beds the day before your arrival. That comment puzzles us. We are pleased that you found the cottage priced right and beautifully located. You were great guests, respected our property and left our cottage in immaculate condition. We would certainly welcome you back again any time.

Location couldn't be better. Branchport has 2 small grocery stores-one with wonderful Keuka logo items to buy as souveniers (Crooked lake Mercantile). Restaurant located in one store. Library, gas station and hardware store also located in Branchport -just 3 miles north. Just 15 minutes to Penn Yan where you'll find banks, restaurants, drug stores, post office, hardware store and walking trails next to canal. (Goes from Penn Yan to Dundee) A scenic and fun hiking area. Hammondsport is just 11 miles south and is truly one of the coolest small towns. Several great restaurants to choose from...bakery, shops, grocery store, library and a beautiful park located at the head of the lake. Pontoon boat rentals are available at the Lakeside Restaurant located just 3 miles south of cottage. The Glen Curtis Museum is a must see and is located just outside the Village of Hammondsport on Rt. 54. Also, the brand new boat museum is located on Lake St in Hammondsport in an old winery - and is also a must see for boat enthusiasts and those who love to see unique architecture. British Airways voted Rt. 54A one of the most scenic highways in the US a few years ago. Take the drive and see for yourself! Road is located very close to the lake, and the homes along the shore are something to see.

We have a wondeful carpeted sleeping loft with a double bed. Children seem to love this - BUT - we ask that no children under 10 years old be allowed in loft - and that adult supervision is maintained on children at all times around the property. This loft should not be used as a play area for children. There are no rails and there is a danger of fallng. A ladder provides access to the loft and caution should be used a all times when climbing up or down the ladder. There are two separate stairways leading to the beach. Please use caution when using, and do not allow children to play on the stairs - or run up or down stairs.
