Description

Now renting for spring, summer and fall 2019! The villa is in a quiet cove on the shores of Keuka Lake with wide open lake views. Wake up and open your bedroom door and it appears that you are living in a treehouse atop the lake. Begin your day watching the sun rise over the bluff and sipping coffee from your rocking chair on the upstairs sunporch. You have all day to go for a bag ride, swim, read, fish, hike, bike, and explore. As the day winds to a close have dinner lakeside at a local restaurant or fire up the grill to have your own private lake view while you dine. End the day with a fire as the sky fills with stars.

Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a sunporch with rocking chairs, t.v. room/sitting room, an open floor plan kitchen/family room, with a dining table that seats eight, and a comfortable seating area with sofa bed that converts into a queen-size bed provides plenty of room for a romantic trip, family vacations or a gathering of friends. Free WiFi, 87 cable channels, and cell phone booster so no dropped calls! Keuka Villa is within walking distance to the Lakeside Restaurant, Harbor Lights Marina and Keuka Yacht Club. 

It is conveniently located within a few miles of owner favorites Dr. Konstantin Frank's Wine Cellars, Steuben Brewing, and Stone View Shop, with fabulous vintage and new items. Don't miss the award winning wineries and breweries, antique shops, farm and craft markets, outlet mall shopping, museums, theaters, hiking and biking trails, and the endless possibilities that the beautiful Finger Lakes have to offer. We welcome you to make Keuka Villa your next and most memorable vacation destination.

Keuka Villa sits on the edge of the lake and the cottage has stairs that take guests from the road to the 2nd level. There is a set of exterior stairs that then go directly to the dock/ cottage front and an interior set of stairs that go from the sunporch to the first floor sitting room. We welcome pets and children but want of all our guests to be comfortable and safe; so please be aware of the many levels and stairs.

About the Owner

About Jim Andrews Jim and Tina have been boating together since 2008. In 2010 they moved their boat to Keuka Lake and fell in love with the deep, crystal clear water and the fun, laid back lake culture. Three boats later they are still enjoying Keuka and lake life. They keep their boat docked at a marina at the north-end of the lake. You usually can spot them floating around Keuka or docked at the Lakeside, Switz, or Waterfront Restaurants. Jim Andrews purchased this house in 2016

Why Jim Andrews chose Hammondsport After several years of floating past quaint cottages, lovely lake houses and even estates we went from dreaming of owning our own small piece of QKA to purchasing the second property we toured. Its perfect lake location, charming layout, and most importantly the feeling as you look out the window- that you are sitting on the water, made it irresistible. We are pleased to be able to share a little bit of our favorite spot and hope you come to love Keuka Lake as much as we do!

What makes this house unique Location, location, location!
*The location on West Lake Road is close to wineries, breweries and the charming town of Hammondsport.
*Owner favorite, the Lakeside Restaurant is within walking distance; 0.1 miles down the road.
*For boaters, there is plenty of room to dock and several great restaurants are conveniently close via water.
*Fishermen: you are in a central location to any end of the lake.

Keuka Villa - A Charming Lakeside Cottage on the Jewel of the Finger Lakes
Accurate description. Had a great time.

This is a cute little place, not fancy but comfy, with everything you need. I’d keep the head count to the lower side next time just because of privacy (two bedrooms) but it worked great for us even with six and two dogs. We had a boat load of fun with Large Marge.

Magical slice of heaven

What a wonderful, clean place on the lake. The location could not be more perfect, near excellent wineries (Dr. Frank's may be the best in the FL), breweries and restaurants. Every morning, coffee was enjoyed on the dock while watching birds, beaver, and even a few fish work their way near the cove. The evenings were spent around the firepit watching the lake go to sleep. The Riverside restaurant was a quick walk up the road and perfect for lunch, dinner and an occasional drink. We had a bite of their power slaw the night we arrived and the manager arranged for us to get a quart of it for our bbq on Memorial Day. The best mac and cheese could be found towards Hammondsport at the Snug. We went to the Waterfront on Sunday for Clammin' and Jammin'.... be forewarned to get their early (3-3:30) if you want to be outside with the band, and know that the kitchen has a hard time keeping ahead of food orders. Ours took 90 minutes to come out, but the staff couldn't be more accommodating during the wait. We didn't mind..where else would we want to be? At the house, the kitchen was stocked with everything you need, and if the owner needed to be reached, he was quick to answer any question. The only downside is that the house is down from the road, and bringing stuff up and down could get tiring, but all you had to do was take one look at the lake once down there and that was forgotten. MOST of the homes on the lake involve steps down, so that was not a problem. The sunporch on the upper level was wonderful when a quick shower hit. You could still enjoy the view while chatting or reading. The furnishings are comfortable and more than adequate. The bedrooms are spacious . The bathrooms are conveniently located on each floor. We appreciated the washer/dryer on the last day to bring clean clothes home. Honestly, I can't think of a better place to be on Keuka Lake. Thanks for having this gem available, Jim!!

Good time, good cottage

We enjoyed our stay at the Keuka Villa. Large Marge was great, the dock was great and Jim (the owner was great. Just keep your head on a swivel when crossing the road as there is a curve and hill right where the cottage is.

Very accomodating

Jim went above and beyond. We had a family emergency right before our stay and Jim offered to assist us to get to cottage. Unfortunately Large Marge was unavailable but Jim was in contact with us about its status and he even came by to work on it. House was nicely accommodated and family had a nice stay. THANK YOU!

The house and dock were nice

The house was cute and well stocked. We took an air mattress knowing you can never sleep comfortably as many as they say. Two bedrooms. One bed each room and pullout bed. With the air mattress it worked ok for a family of 5.
The dock and lake were gorgeous. Great views from the upper porch as well. We took our newest puppy. We would never do that again. There is no grass, no yard and no "green space" as I was told. Only a very small steep bank with mulch. We had to cross a very busy dangerous road to find any weeds or any area she could go to the bathroom. Not ideal for a puppy or any large dog. On top of that the neighbor next door showed up and told us their dog did not get along at all with other dogs or people or kids. We needed to watch our dog at all times. The dog was a pitbull mix and it barked at us constantly. They very strongly advised not letting our puppy get anywere near their property.
We also paid for and rented the boat for the week. upon arriving we were informed it wasnt working and he needed to have it looked it so maybe midweek it would be ready for us. It never got fixed and we had to pay a lot of out of pocket money to have another boat for the week.
Summary the house was nice. The lake and views were great. It is not really pet friendly and the boat was not running and had we known that, we would be able to find a cheaper boat ahead of time instead of last minute.

Perfect location - on a quiet part of the lake with magnificent views.

We enjoyed our stay at Keuka Villa. The house was perfect for our party of 5. Jim was very responsive and helpful. The location was perfect to do some day trips and then come back and unwind whilst relaxing on the dock.
We had a great time and would definitely recommend a stay at this cabin.

Wonderful!

What a perfect week to enjoy Keuka Villa! We soaked in the warm sunny days on the dock, floated around the lake on rafts and took out “Large Marge” for many boat rides, enjoying looking at all the lovely home along the lake. We saw an Eagle fly over head the first day!

We caught plenty of fish off the dock.

Throughout the week we visited Bully Hill Winery. Heron Hill winery. Hunt County Vineyard and Steuben Brewing Company. All very good. We stopped at Wild Goose Chase Antiques and Stone View Antiques as well.

Your home is wonderful. We enjoyed it so very much. Last night we got to watch the storm clouds roll in and lightening along the lake. What a show!

Thanks again
