About Brian Willemsen

I am from the finger lakes area and have always enjoyed buying and fixing up homes. It gives me great satisfaction to look at a property and envision it's potential and then see the project to fruition.

Brian Willemsen purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Brian Willemsen chose Penn Yan

I built a post & beam cabin on 5 Acre lot 28 years ago and have been renting a cottage on Keuka Lake every year. I've always wanted to have a cottage on Keuka and could not pass up this unique Property where others could enjoy a week on the lake and enjoy the same family memories I have enjoyed.

What makes this cottage unique

This property has so much to offer! A vacationing family will enjoy a day on the lake boating, swimming, sunning or just relaxing. Centrally located to dozens of Wineries, 6 Micro Breweries, Museums & Restaurant's. Located between Penn Yan & Hammondsport on the desirable East side of Keuka Lake offers fantastic sunsets.

We had a large group gather for a reunion weekend and the property was a perfect fit. Brian was phenomenal in responding to any questions we had. We could not have asked for a better weekend.

Great property! Nice view of the Lake.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Celebrated my mom's 80th. There were 24 of us and the property was perfect for our group. Brian was so helpful with any questions we had. Any problems he was right there to fix it. The view was amazing from all of the houses. The beds were very comfortable. Watkins Glen State Park was definitely a must see. The waterfalls were amazing. So many wineries in the area. Only wish we would have stayed longer.

house on beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group and stayed for a week. It was a perfect and beautiful location on the lake and the houses were spacious and clean. The owner has mentioned he recently bought it but had already made many improvements. There was plenty of room for our group and we enjoyed using the kayaks and canoe that came with the house. There was a fire pit and picnic tables. The house is located near the town of Penn Yan which has many restaurants and a grocery store. We used our bikes daily on the street which ran alongside the lake and had very little traffic. The owner was accommodating and easy to work with. We would recommend this property to others, especially if you have a large group.
