This was our third time visiting the Finger Lakes and each time we rent a house. Eight of us stayed at this home and were all very comfortable. Bill is wonderful to work with. He has everything in the home you can possibly need. Paper towels, toilet paper, tissues were all provided. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were all very comfortable and everything was very clean. The deck was a great place to relax with a glass of wine and see the evening sunset. The view of the lake was spectacular. We took advantage of the fire pit (wood was provided) for two nights. Whenever I contacted Bill he was quick to respond. The only downside was the water. We needed to go out and get drinking water but all the good things about the home far outweigh this one issue. All of us agree we would definitely come back here. Yes, it is "off the beaten path" but for what you get and the price you can't go wrong. Thank you Bill for renting to us. It was an enjoyable time.

We had here a 40-year reunion of a discussion group, a mixed group of 9 people in their seventies or late sixties. Five years ago we had the neighboring property "Serenity on The Bluff" by the same owner when 13 people came to our reunion. Both places are beautiful and very comfortable with everything there that we might possibly need. Also very accessible for older folks. We plan to be back in 5 years.

We have just thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful time at Tranquility on the Bluff. Thank you, Bill, for providing such a restful house with all the amenities we could want. The privacy, views of the lake, hot tub, and spacious lake house were just a few things that make this a special place. Can't wait for next year!

Bill, the owner, provides all the extras that we usually have to bring with us. Plenty of kitchen amenities such as paper towels, dishwasher detergent, liquid detergent,coffee filters, 2 coffee pots, tons of dishes, cutlery, pots and pans,even muffin tins. There are 2 HC washers and 2 HC dryers and laundry detergent is provided. We brought our own linens,but u can rent if you want. Initially a little hard to find but once you are there the awesome view, the privacy of the property, the large hot tub with a view of the night sky were terrific. The west bluff of Keuka Lake is awesome. Sunsets fantastic. Very private, homes not on top of each other. Yes, you have to walk down a hill to get to the lake but it wasn't that difficult. We have been coming to the Finger Lakes for 18 years and this is one of the best properties we have stayed at. We have already booked again for next year.

This was our third trip to West Bluff on Keuka Lake, our 2nd time to rent Tranquility. It is an awesome place, a well equipped kitchen with plenty of room for 12 people. The view of the lake is a west view, so you get great sunsets. It is "off the beaten path"-very secluded and quiet. If you like to stay in and cook a few meals to save money on eating out, this is the place for you. Everything was clean and ready for us! We are booking for next year!

The perfect location to experience the Finger Lakes region
Tranquility on the Bluff is an amazing property. We were pleasantly surprised to find the interior to be more spacious than viewed on the website photos. Everything was very clean and upgraded, very well stocked, and very comfortable throughout. The owner truly thought of everything. The view of the lake is amazing. The private dock is tranquil and kayaking is a must. The hot tub was an extra perk. We can't wait to return to this house which has won a special place in our hearts.

A group of 7 of us rented this cottage over Columbus Day weekend and found it very charming. The house was very clean and roomy. We enjoyed the deck both for morning coffee and tea as well as evening wine. The hot tub was fabulous!! The house had everything we needed. We have rented houses many times for our reunions but I have to say that this house had everything and more!! There was plenty of parking. the only thing I would say is to not follow GPS to get to the house!! GPS takes you down a very steep, rut filled road that parallels the lake and tells you have reached your destination....the house was above but not visible from the car nor was there any parking there! Luckily I kept going and finally found the house by looking for the house number posted on the West Bluff Drive Road. And luckily we arrived in the day time!! I would highly recommend this cottage!!
