If you’re looking for the perfect, private location on Keuka Lake with one of the best views, you have found it at O’Cottage! This one-of-a-kind property is nestled off the end of the private extension of East Bluff Drive on a level lakeside lot. There is no drive-by traffic and no visible neighbors to one side of this lot.

A warm and inviting space greets you as you enter the home into the kitchen. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a glass cook top stove, and granite countertops. You can enjoy the beautiful gas fireplace as you prepare meals and gather with your family and friends. Just off the kitchen is a full bath with tub/shower combo. Two more separate living areas, both tastefully furnished, provide enough space for the entire family to relax. A beautiful set of pine barn doors add an eclectic touch, and can be closed for privacy if the adults wish to gather in one space to chat and enjoy a glass of Finger Lakes wine, as the children play or watch a movie in the third living room.

A staircase off of this room leads to a private bedroom on the 2nd floor. This bedroom features a Queen size bed, and a great view of the lake. The second staircase leading to the 2nd floor is located off the kitchen. The other three bedrooms are located on this side of the house. There are two queen bedrooms; one of the queen bedrooms features a small TV with a DVD player. The third floor has a queen bed and four singles; this is the perfect place to set the kids up, which is what we do. You can enjoy the view of the lake from all three bedrooms! A full bath with shower is conveniently located to these bedrooms.

The lakefront at this property is unlike any other, and where you will want to spend most of your time! With two gradual entrances to the lake, you can wade in the warm, shallow water and children can enjoy the perfect spot for splashing and swimming. A picnic table is located lakeside, where you can gather for meals or a game of cards. This home is located in a prime fishing location, so make sure you bring your fishing poles. Fish off the dock, or take the rowboat out and enjoy the scenery. Relax in the Adirondack chairs and tell stories around a campfire. Watch for shooting stars under the clear night’s sky. Just minutes from local restaurants, wineries and shops, yet set in a location where you can privately enjoy your vacation. O’Cottage is the vacation destination you have been waiting for!

The home was renovated in 2005 and is lovingly maintained and updated each year. This is a smoke-free and pet-free home. If you'd like to see more photos or want to take a walking tour, please visit us on Facebook.

We rent full weeks on a Saturday-to-Saturday schedule during the summer months, which run from the second week of June through Labor Day. Please note that O'Cottage is a seasonal cottage and is closed for the winter from October 31-April 15.

Our cottage is equipped with a starter supply of toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, and hand soap. Guests bring their own sheets and towels. Security cameras of the grounds are in use.

About Anastasia OConnor

Happily married mom of three, I rent my home when my family is not using it. We lovingly maintain and upgrade the cottage each year. Have been renting my home for over ten years, with many repeat guests who have become our friends.

Anastasia OConnor purchased this house in 2003

Why Anastasia OConnor chose Keuka Park

This is such a unique location; a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I found the cottage at the end of a one-lane road, nestled into the bluff, on a cold, rainy day and knew it was the home for me!

What makes this house unique

Quiet, peaceful, no drive-by traffic, no noisy neighbors -- almost like being on an island!

We are having a blast. Your cottage is lovely!

Lovely tranquil location on the lake

  • 5 of 5

The memories created by our family at this lake house are ones that will be cherished for the rest of our lives. We loved that this home is directly on the water and at the end of the bluffs. Our father loved the bluff area. He viewed the bluffs as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of working on the dairy farm we owned in Benton Center. My three siblings, niece, sister-in-law and I returned to the area to honor him and our mother. All of us are so glad we chose this home as our "home away from home."

Mornings filled with the symphony created from the combination of the sound of the water and the songs from the birds set the perfect tone for the day. One of true tranquility.

Then evenings filled with skipping stones and roasting marshmallows to make S'mores and S'moreos (thank you Anatasia for teaching us about S'moreos) were the ideal way to spend quality time together.

While our family is close, we all left with a better connection to one another.

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous location and a thoughtful house. Loved the privacy and conquered the challenge of the driveway, lol. Our host was very helpful. The water was invigorating but that did not stop the kids from swimming and jumping off the dock for hours. Can't wait to come back! Thanks for having us!

Private and roomy. Check out the fishing. The water is so clear you can see prized bass from the dock. Really great area to snorkel with the kids as well.

The lakehouse is right on the water, secluded from other people and has an incredible homey charm!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this place is so beautiful and perfect for my family to getaway. There is plenty of room and so many different places to hangout in the house so that the kids can have their own area while we have ours! The house is right on the water, you couldn't get any closer, making it easy to keep an eye on the kids while the adults chill out on the lawn in the adirondak chairs. The property also has a fire pit right next to the water making it a great family activity to have a cookout and make snores while watching the sunset over the lake. All in all I would definitely recommend this house because the owners are so kind and helpful and always easy to reach with any questions, the house is in a perfect private location with a load of access points to the lake including a dock, and the house is beautiful with so much room to spread out, it is decorated very well and my family had an amazing vacation on the lake here!
