About Chris Wright

The Wright family has roots in the Penn Yan area dating back to the early 1800s. We have owned a cottage on Keuka Lake since the 1950s, and it has been a center of gravity for our family for years even as many of us have moved to distant cities throughout the U.S. As our family has grown we have created additional living space in close proximity to the lake. This space allows us to continue to spend time comfortably together each year on Keuka Lake. We're delighted to share this vacation home with others.

Chris Wright purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Chris Wright chose Penn Yan

On the northern shore of Keuka Lake, Penn Yan is an historic Finger Lakes village in the early stages of a renaissance. Sheridan House is one or two blocks from several new attractions including a wine bar, brew pub, vintage candy store, art gallery and crossfit gym. These complement nearby establishments such as the Penn Yan Diner and Morgan's Grocery.

What makes this apartment unique

First constructed in the 1870's, the property was operated by John Sheridan as the Sheridan House Hotel. During the 20th century various retail businesses occupied the first floor with residential tenants occupying the second floor. By the 21st century the building had undergone many interior changes and had endured a fair amount of neglect. In 2014-2015 we executed a major interior and exterior renovation of the building and resurrected the Sheridan House name. We hope our guests enjoy the result as much as we do.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

This as our first trip to the FLX and picked Penn Yan specifically for this rental! We spent more time in Watkins Glen and even Geneva than we did around here, but both were an easy and picturesque drive. There IS an amazing coffee shop just downstairs and a killer ice cream spot in town.

The only (very minor) Con’s about this rental are that the bedroom doors are frosted glass and don’t offer complete privacy (so keep that in mind depending on who you are traveling with), and the sofa and living room furniture aren’t especially comfy for four to lounge around on. Superbly decorated, but maybe not so functional? But other than those two minor issues, what a perfect place! Beds are sooooo comfy! Kitchen is gorgeous and has everything you need. Precious place meticulously maintained. Every detail anticipated.

Pretty much Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The unit is nicely updated. The location was great. We could walk places in the evening for a bite to eat or a beverage - try the wine bar around the corner! Also try the super cute coffee shop right below. If I really had to point out a slight flaw, it would be that the water pressure in the shower was a bit weak. Otherwise, perfect! Can't wait to go back.

Well designed and fully equipped get away spot. Cute town with some signs of future awakening though it's not there yet. Reasonable proximity to Seneca wine sites and restaurants.

Clean, Updated and great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for 2 nights recently. It has everything you are looking for in a Finger Lakes rental. Great location in town with lots of shops and restaurants. Condo was clean, well stocked with pots and pans, dishes and a fully stocked Keurig. Beds were very comfortable. Loved all the soaps and lotions provided. Easy driving distance to lots of Finger Lakes attractions and wineries. I would definitely consider renting this place again. Thanks Chris!
