Also Known as "Serenity on the Bluff", the home received its name because it is located in an area of Yates County known as Bluff Point. Bluff Point is the peninsula what separates the East and West branches of Keuka Lake. Long ago the shores of Bluff Point were covered with vineyards and dotted with steam boat landings to ferry people and agricultural products to the three towns on Keuka Lake. Over time the vineyards were abandoned and were gradually replaced with campsites, seasonal cottages and year round homes.
This home was finished in the year 2000 and has approximately 4000 square feet of living space. The home includes six bedrooms including one bedroom with a balcony, four full baths. The main floor has an open floor plan including a large living room, dining and kitchen area. There is also a recreation/game room, and huge partially-covered deck.
This home faces West and is located near the tip of the peninsula that separates the East and West branches of Keuka Lake. The main floor has an open floor plan, that included a large living room with a wood burning fireplace, dining area, and kitchen. In addition there are three bedrooms, each with its own queen-size bed. Two of the bedrooms face the Keuka Lake. The third bedroom is on the wooded side of the home and has its own private full bathroom with a shower. Off the main hall is a full bathroom with a tub/shower. Adjacent to the dining area is a huge, partially-covered deck. The deck is furnished with tables, chairs, bar set, charcoal grills, play houses for children and the jetted hot tub. The deck is surrounded by a railing/fence with latch-able gates. The deck faces the Keuka Lake and is fantastic for dining, relaxing, and enjoying the breath-taking Keuka Lake sunsets.
The upper floor has two huge bedrooms and a full bath with a tub/shower. The master bedroom has a king-size bed, day bed with a trundle and a private covered porch that faces the Keuka Lake. The second bedroom has a king-size bed, day bed with a trundle and faces the Keuka Lake.

There a large off-street parking area for at least nine vehicles. The parking area is at the end of a long semi-private driveway and within 20 feet of the home. Also, adjacent to the deck is a fire ring surrounded by benches. This is a fantastic place to spend a romantic evening or to gather with your family and roast marshmallows under the stars. Fire wood is provided.
Access to the lake is located in front of the home via a path and stairway with 128 steps and four landings that weaves around whispering pines and culminates on the 40 plus foot long dock. The shoreline is natural and unspoiled, including a dock, and swim raft. From the shoreline the water has a very gradual increase in depth as one walks into the lake. The lake bottom is hard and consists of shale, stones and rocks of various sizes. Water shoes, sneakers or other foot protection are a recommended due to the natural shale bottom and zebra mussels.

What a GREAT house for large families. VERY clean, VERY well stocked, everything you need. Quiet location. It was great having a bedroom for each couple and my MIL. We enjoyed spending time on the deck and walking along the access road. Owner was great - responsive and helpful. The stairs to the lake are a hike up and down, but are as advertised. Everyone agreed the house was terrific. NOTE: Waze gives great directions to the house, Apple Maps does NOT.

Our family of 16 thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of Serenity on the Bluff. The name is a beautiful description of the home and property. Bill was extremely helpful throughout the planning and the visit. Always answered any question or need quickly. House is spacious and well equipped with activities and supplies for adults and children. We enjoyed indoor and outdoor spaces. Keuka Lake is stunning and the water is beautiful. Water shoes definitely needed. The steps are quite the hike but well worth it. Dock has one connection that can be a tripping hazard and would be helpful to have orange caution tape across. Location is remote and quiet but Penn Yann is very accessible for groceries. We had ages 4 - adult and the fun never stopped. Every member rates this vacation and stay 5 stars. Thanks again, Bill, for sharing your lovely lake home.

We couldn't have asked for a better family vacation. Bill is one of the nicest property owners we've had the pleasure of working with to spend some time on Keuka Lake. His rental house is easily accessible, well maintained, and very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the oversized deck, fire pit, and hot tub very much. It was also very easy to cook our meals in the well stocked kitchen and we ate way too much good food! This next comment will sound funny, but we appreciated the exercise from using the staircase to the water to burn off some calories from all of our eating and drinking. Haha
The lake area has a dock and swim platform and if you rent a boat you're all set for exploring the larger area of beautiful Keuka Lake. (We were able to watch the fireworks in Branchport by boat). Thank you, Bill, for giving us the opportunity to rent your wonderful property. We had a great time!

We rented Serenity on the Bluff for our family of 14 to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We found the house clean and very well equipped, everything we brought along "just in case" was not needed. The owner Bill was very accomodating, both in planning the trip and during the week. We spent a lot of time on the beautiful porch and enjoyed the fire pit almost every evening. Our family enjoyed the close proximity to the many wineries in the area. I was very surprised and pleased to receive our security deposit and a wonderful thank you note in less than a week.

If you have a large family or group looking for a peaceful and beautiful setting, look no further. The owner is an exceptional man who is always quick to respond to any need. His pictures do not do justice to this home.

Thank you Bill. Everyone in our party expressed great accolades over Serenity. Your home exceeded all expectations and was perfect for our extended family reunion. I have rented many properties but this was the best equipped home ever. Cooking for large groups is never easy but everything we needed to pull of a meal for our family was there. Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful home.

Bill, Thank you for sending our security deposit back. You were very helpful in answering our questions and having the house supplied with everything we would need. We wanted to let you know that Serenity on the Bluff was a very nice place to stay for our family. Very accommodating for a large family like ours or a large group. You have a very nice place there, very well equipped even more so than we expected. We felt very much like home there. Such a scenic place overlooking the lake. We enjoyed boating on the lake and going to various places on the lake. We got our exercises going down and up the stairs to the lake. We would definitely recommend your place to people and would be interested in renting it again sometime. Thanks again for everything and we will keep you in mind if we come up again and need a place to stay. Have a great summer! Our Best, Cindy
