About Wayne J Klumpp
I purchased raw land and personally designed and built my summer residence, which I now will share with you. Over the years I have made many alterations and additions including added decks and an outbuilding.....now dubbed the "Love Shack", a beautiful place to house added quests at an added cost of $500 per week. A special hideaway with a kitchenette, half bath, and outside heated shower.
Wayne J Klumpp purchased the land for this Cottage in 1980
Why Wayne J Klumpp chose Branchport:
Initially, I boated all of the finger lakes in search of the right lake. Keuka was the answer...the jewel of the finger lakes. Then I spent 2 years in quest of the right location....a perfect beach with no break walls, shade trees for my fair complected children, a Westside location to avoid parching afternoon heat from the sun found on the opposite shore, ample parking with a setback from the highway, and most importantly "no stairs" so typically required on this Lake. Then I fulfilled a lifelong dream to build my own home with my own hands!
What makes this Cottage unique:
I then designed the height of the cottage to be above water level by 6 feet so as to afford a view of the beachfront to insure a careful watch over toddlers while enjoying the fantastic views, the water traffic, the ducks, etc!
We really enjoyed the location and views of this property. Convenient to many wineries, breweries and parks with even more great views to enjoy. Great vacation spot. Wayne was a very friendly host and willing to answer all our questions.

Wayne and Sherry, We had so much fun at your place. My granddaughter, Pat and I so loved it loved it. We also connected up with Jerry and his wife Cathy renting next door. They are truly kind people, but I am sure you know that. We left the garage door unlocked as we found it after running the washer, which definitely came in handy. Pat and Eddie

Our stay at Wayne's slice of paradise was everything we hoped for and received. Our experience was absolutely one of our best vacations!! We enjoyed Kayaking on the lake and surrounding areas. Great location to experience the wine and brewery trails. Celebrated our 15th anniversary and our son-in-law's birthday. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed the deck for dining, reading and just watching the scenery. Our daughter and her husband stayed in the Love Shack and felt connected to us but still had their own privacy. We will definitely be going back!!!!!! Thanks Wayne for sharing your home with us.

We rented this house for a long weekend with our teenage boys & it was perfect. The lake is steps away, canoes, kayaks, life jackets are available, and the multi-tiered deck with plenty of seating overlooking the lake was the icing on the cake. The bedrooms inside are on the small side (hopefully that's not why you came!), but the house is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The houses are very close together, but we didn't find privacy or noise to be a problem. The owner was also very helpful with local recommendations and available for questions/concerns. Would definitely recommend.

We took my mother-in-law and father-in-law on vacation. A total of six adults were on the trip. My in-laws stayed on the love shack. It allowed them to go to bed earlier than the rest of the party. It worked out perfectly. My husband and I loved this property and stayed at it previously. If we go to Keuka Lake, this is the only place I would consider staying. Thank you Wayne for sharing your beautiful property.

Our family had a fantastic vacation on Keuka Lake. The house and outside deck and beach were perfect for the whole family, including our 9 year old twins. They had a great time swimming and kayaking. And the deck was perfect for cooking out, meals and cocktails overlooking the lake. The Branchport location was super convenient also. A perfect getaway!
