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 Keuka Lake

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.

Do not hesitate to stay here! The BEST!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated a long anniversary weekend in this beautifully appointed, comfortable, all new studio apartment. Our bed and bedding was supremely comfortable, the kitchen was stocked with everything we could need, including coffee k pacs, wine glasses, cutlery. The towels were thick and thirsty. We were within a short drive to the 9 wineries and 4 breweries we visited. All great. Short walk to wine bar, restaurants and 2 minute drive to beautiful walking or biking trail with waterfalls and bridges. The town is delightful, the people are amazingly friendly, and Chris (who we rented from) was kind, attentive, HELPFUL and warm. There is also a beautiful new specialty coffee bar right below us that even serves local wine and beer! So lovely to see the horse and buggies quietly travel up this small town's streets! If you're on the fence, do not hesitate! I want to do the whole weekend over again without changing a thing! Absolutely stunning rural area and extraordinarily picturesque. More space than a room in an inn or B and B!

We rented from Chris who could not be more genuine, accommodating and helpful.

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful. Newly refurbished, most comfy bed we ever slept in, kitchen with everything we would need, tons of storage so clothes and toiletries are tucked away, leaving this amazing studio looking modern and uncluttered. It was a very convenient location to either walk to wine bar, short drive to wineries, breweries, restaurants. Great hiking trail within a minute drive with waterfalls and bridges. Everyone we met on a short visit was incredibly friendly and warm. The wines and beer in this area are fantastic. Different than the ones we had in Napa, but in a good, eye opening way. Did I mention the specialty coffee bar downstairs, which is also new has great coffee, muffins and even sells local beer and wine. Very inviting, clean space. We can't wait to go back and rent the same space. If you're on the fence, don't hesitate. We almost stayed at an inn, which was quite a bit more expensive with less living space and less privacy. Chris is a great person to rent from!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We went up to the Finger Lakes for a few nights to get away from it all. The place was spotless and was centrally located to a lot of things to do. I recommend it as a place to stay to anyone looking for a perfect time. Great diner, wine bar and small coffee shop all within walking distance. Book now and you won't regret it! Thank you for the great accommodations, Chris.

Classy, clean, convenient, and extremely comfortable!!

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I landed at this stylish studio for a girls getaway weekend. The apartment was everything we'd hoped it would be: well appointed, clean, close to everything we wanted to see and do, and quite a lovely place to escape to. Chris thought of everything in preparing a rental spot for Finger Lakes travelers. We had a blast browsing antique stores and gift shops, exploring the The Windmill, being wowed by Watkins Glen Gorge, and taking in the majesty of Keuka Lake at Bully Hill Winery and Dr. Frank's. If you're planning a trip to the area, you won't be disappointed!
