Description

120' of choice, level lakefront located at the water's edge with raft and dock provide for plenty of water enjoyment. This home features an open and spacious vaulted living area and the two-story glass front provides a panoramic view of the lake. Two bedrooms and full bath downstairs and a bedroom and ensuite bath upstairs makes this a great set-up for families of two to six. Perhaps best of all is the lack of steps most places feature.  A mere eight steps from the level lot up to the deck is the only climb you will make.  Our cottage is conveniently located one mile from a small village and is situated on a large, private lot with ample on-site parking for three cars.

A large deck with views of the distant state park is the place where meals become memorable occasions. Enhancing your dining experiences will be glimpses of kingfishers, herons, ducks, and occasionally mergansers and loons. Use our canoe to explore the nearby inlet. A marina is one/half mile away and you can tie-up your boat to our dock. Fishing is excellent and have even been caught off our dock. Relax on a water chair or sunbathe on the dock. Other activities our guests love include reading or napping in the lounge chair under the willow tree, snorkeling and of course, skiing and tubing. Roast marshmallows by the campfire and watch the moon rise. Croquet, billiards, table tennis are also available.

A nearby pick your own blueberry patch is open in July. Hiking on the Outlet Trail is another favorite activity of our guests. Our exceptional location affords endless daytime activities: enjoy wine-tasting at the renowned Dr. Konstantine Frank's or any of the nearby seven wineries. Keuka Lake's best restaurants are on the west side of the lake, a few miles south of our cottage. There is on-site parking for 3 - 4 cars.

Additional Property Information

We built this cottage in 1987 on land we inherited from our Irish ancestors who bought the property in 1830. The 120' of level lakefront make this property especially appealing. Additionally, it is one of the larger and more private lots on the lake.
The many bonus features such as the ping pong table in the basement, the

Wonderful house on lake, very clean and comfortable.

From booking to checkout all was great. The host (Barbara) was very attentive and accommodating to our needs, particularly since we were flying in from out of town. The house was well kept and had everything we needed for a great getaway. If looking for a week of downtime in the Finger Lakes this is a great place to stay.

Beautiful spot on Keuka Lake

We enjoyed our week at Shimmering Shores very much! It was relaxing and the cottage had everything we needed. Boat rental was a breeze at the nearby marina. We loved the deck and eating under the umbrella every night! The sunrises and moonrise’s were spectacular!

Wonderful first experience in Finger Lakes area

The Shimmering Shores cottage has everything you could ask for in a lake front property: canoe, kayak, raft, several floating devices, games and entertainment for outdoor, as well as, indoor use. Kitchen is well appointment with good quality dinnerware and utensils. The beds are comfortable.
The owners are super thoughtful and accommodating, preparing a personal letter with some very useful instructions for each family that stays at the cottage.
Overall, we had a wonderful time at Shimmering Shores, and I highly recommend this property!

Gorgeous views & private location

We stayed at this lake house with my husband, son and my parents. It was spacious and accommodating for up to six people.

Lake views
The best part of shimmering shores is absolutely the private property. There is PLENTY of grass area to accommodate playing in the yard, with lots of very generous amenities. This is very hard to come by on the lake and was so so nice!!!

The view from the inside with the panoramic glass is truly STUNNING especially after 10am. Before then- Very bright.

We also really loved eating on the patio every morning and evening. I will say, although this home accommodates children over five the railing gap is a bit large- something to note if you have children depending on their temperament. But, overall not an issue for us due to the precautions we took.

Amenities
This family definitely is so welcoming offering to use all their things making it easy to come without lots of stuff! (We came from Texas so this was a must for us). We also rented a pontoon and were able to easily dock on the private dock. It’s not too shallow which I know is a concern for some big boats! It was nice to have a washer and dryer on site too! We enjoyed the kayak and basketball every day.

Cleanliness
At first glance the home appeared very clean. The fridge was cleaned out, counters cleaned and the floors were mopped! The linens were VERY VERY CLEAN (and cute! Loved the quilts)

Although the home was clearly cleaned in-between guests, I think a professional deep clean a few times a season in unusual spaces like cabinets and hard to reach places would be beneficial since the windows are open most the time and because and the ceilings are so tall.

Thank you for renting your family home to us! It was truly a wonderful week with family! You are very gracious for sharing all the things you love about where you grew up

Nicely situated

We had a great stay with our 8 year old. The property is very well located. Trees on the property edges bring privacy that we noticed was better than standard for this side of the lake. And the view across the lake is soothing with a low-key state park in view as opposed to a string of tightly-packed cottages.
Tons to do with kids both on property and off as well. WiFi is lightning fast for those that need to stay connected. The cottage itself is just as described in the listing, reviews, and photos. No surprises.
Property owners were very professional, courteous, and helpful. Book it, relax, and enjoy.

Perfect get away!

Beautiful location for some peace and quiet. It was so nice waking up to the amazing sunrise and ending the night sitting out by the fire. I can’t wait to return!

Highly Recommend

The property was stunning, especially the access to the water, which was quite private. The view of the lake from the picture windows facing the lake was very beautiful. The cabin was comfortable, homey, and well furnished. It was not lacking for anything that guests may need. The kitchen equipment was adequate. The beds were extremely comfortable and clean. The property manager was very responsive to any needs of guests, and reached out repeatedly to ensure that all was well, which it was!

Fun Stay on Keuka Lake

The property was very nice. The home itself was clean and accurately described in the listing. The deck overlooked the lake. We used it for almost every meal. There was a big yard for playing games. The home itself was a few steps from the lake. The lake was perfect for swimming. We had a great vacation. Thank you.

Vacation Perfection

We had a wonderful time at this very clean and family friendly cottage. Location and waterfront is perfect! Kids were in the water all week long-lots of great swimming and fishing! Cottage was very clean and easy to just move your stuff in and wasn’t cluttered. Owners were very friendly and responsive. Cottage is clearly well maintained. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks for a great week!
