This home, built in 1999, is well appointed with 3 televisions, high speed internet, and two Bluetooth stereo systems (one portable to take to the lake) to stay connected. If staying connected is the last thing on your mind, this home is surrounded by trees which allows for the ultimate in privacy.

This is a home that we enjoy ourselves and care for very much. We do not allow for parties or guests beyond what is stated at the time of booking. Please see the rental agreement for more specifics.

Absolutely beautiful property, lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely lake house for two weeks in mid-August 2016. It was the perfect spot for a summer getaway for our family of 6 (we have 4 young children) with plenty of extra room for grandma and grandpa and aunts and uncles and cousins to come and visit. The home is huge, spotlessly clean, well-maintained, comfortable, and very well-stocked. The view of the lake is breathtaking as the house is situated higher up on the hill than most; the lake can be seen from almost every room. Even on summer weekend days the area (street and lake) was very quiet; we felt like we had the entire lake to ourselves. Getting from the lake back up to the house is a bit of a hike with lots of stairs and a steep driveway. This didn't bother us however, as we were happy to have a natural barrier from the water with our small children. The small access road between the back of the house and the lake access is a non-issue (even with kids) as the street is small and sees very little traffic. Nathan was fantastic to work with - friendly, responsive, and extremely helpful. Any issue that came up during our stay (and there were very few) was addressed immediately. Can't say enough about this lovely home or the wonderful owner. Hope to be back again.

Luxurious Home with Outstanding Views

  • 5 of 5

From the very beginning, I knew that Nathan was going to be a fantastic owner to work with. I must have sent him 8 different e-mails asking him about every amenity and location question that I had. I always received prompt and friendly responses, packed with great information answering my questions. We rented the house for a reunion in August with my two sisters and their families, and the 10 of us fit very comfortably in Nathan's beautifully furnished and decorated home. We are big cooks and we did a full shop for groceries on our way to the house so that we wouldn't have to leave the property too many times during the week. The kitchen was the best equipped kitchen that I have ever seen in a rental home (and I have rented many properties over the years!). Sharp knives, baking sheets, top of the line cookware, a high end, powerful grill - the list goes on. The prevailing trend in Nathan's home is that everything is of high quality. We really felt like we were staying in a gorgeous friend's home, not a rental property. One of the best features of the home is that the views of the lake are enjoyed in every room on the main floor of the house. Whether you are in the kitchen preparing a meal, sitting in the sun room reading a book, or playing a board game in the family room - the views are outstanding from every room. It felt like we were in a bird's nest way up high. The price for that view is a steep climb up and down to the water, but it was nothing that fit adults and kids can't handle. The dock is nice and big with plenty of square footage for the fishermen and the swimmers in our family to enjoy. We used the 2 paddle boards every day and the canoe was a big bonus for more exploring. We decided to rent a pontoon boat for one day from a local marina and I highly recommend that experience. It was a highlight of our week and Nathan has a raft with the appropriate rope to attach to the boat, so all we had to do was attach it to the boat and we had a fun day of tubing on the gorgeous lake. The clarity of the water was superb and it was so peaceful. Don't hesitate to book this property. The owner is honest, easy to work with and the property and views are outstanding. You won't be disappointed.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house. It’s new, well-designed, and perfect for privacy or socializing. It’s a well-thought out space. Nathan was great to deal with from beginning to end.

We were a family group of 10. The seniors, my husband and myself, stayed in the level entry bedroom, downstairs from the main level. Our two daughters, their husbands and kids, age 7-15, stayed in the other bedrooms. The 10 of us only get together twice a year so our choice is important and this house exceeded our expectations.

On the main level is a living room that is big enough for all of us to watch movies, the kitchen, dining area, and a beautiful sun room.

A few step up in another living room with TV.

A pleasant surprise was the complete set of good cookware, not the random assortment usually found in rentals.

The views are awesome from several rooms and attached decks.

The lake here is clear, and even the 7 year old, who is only accustomed to swimming pools didn’t hesitate to plunge in. We rented a pontoon boat and spent one day on the lake. We brought tubes and with the provided paddle boards and canoe, everyone was happy and busy.

Nearby is CMAC, Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center (CMAC), Dave Matthews was playing while we were there (sold out) and Bob Dylan is scheduled for July 12. Other acts this summer include Jeff Beck, Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris.

Our family had an amazing time and are so glad we chose this house.

Beautiful home with amazing lake views!

  • 5 of 5

What a great weekend - we rented the property for a family weekend and everything was truly perfect. It was extremely easy to book and Nathan was very helpful. The home itself is in great condition - well furnished and every detail was thought out. There was plenty of space for all 9 of us, we never felt on top of one another. The lake is pristine - warm, clear and very enjoyable. We spent most of our time by the water and quite frankly didn't want to leave.

The most important part for me was that the home was impeccably clean. We hope to be back again!

Everything was terrific. It is a gorgeous house, very comfortable for a group of 10. We were impressed by the kitchen cookware and utensils and grill, and cooked our family meals. Wegmans was 20-25 min away in Canandaigua. Everything was as described, including many steps to get to and from the dock. We used the canoe and paddleboards and brought some kayaks too. Very fun.
