If you’re looking for the perfect, private location on Keuka Lake with one of the best views, you have found it at O’Cottage! This one-of-a-kind property is nestled off the end of the private extension of East Bluff Drive on a level lakeside lot. There is no drive-by traffic and no visible neighbors to one side of this lot. A warm and inviting space greets you as you enter the home into the kitchen. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a glass cook top stove, and granite countertops. You can enjoy the beautiful gas fireplace as you prepare meals and gather with your family and friends. Just off the kitchen is a full bath with tub/shower combo. Two more separate living areas, both tastefully furnished, provide enough space for the entire family to relax.
A beautiful set of pine barn doors add an eclectic touch, and can be closed for privacy if the adults wish to gather in one space to chat and enjoy a glass of Finger Lakes wine, as the children play or watch a movie in the third living room. A staircase off of this room leads to a private bedroom on the 2nd floor. This bedroom features a Queen size bed, and a great view of the lake. The second staircase leading to the 2nd floor is located off the kitchen. The other three bedrooms are located on this side of the house. There are two queen bedrooms; one of the queen bedrooms features a small TV with a DVD player. The third floor has a queen bed and four singles; this is the perfect place to set the kids up, which is what we do. You can enjoy the view of the lake from all three bedrooms! A full bath with shower is conveniently located to these bedrooms. The lakefront at this property is unlike any other, and where you will want to spend most of your time! With two gradual entrances to the lake, you can wade in the warm, shallow water and children can enjoy the perfect spot for splashing and swimming.
A picnic table is located lakeside, where you can gather for meals or a game of cards. This home is located in a prime fishing location, so make sure you bring your fishing poles. Fish off the dock, or take the rowboat out and enjoy the scenery. Relax in the Adirondack chairs and tell stories around a campfire. Watch for shooting stars under the clear night’s sky. Just minutes from local restaurants, wineries and shops, yet set in a location where you can privately enjoy your vacation. O’Cottage is the vacation destination you have been waiting for! The home was renovated in 2005 and is lovingly maintained and updated each year.

We booked the cottage for a short getaway. The driveway was steep as posted on the website, and with our big truck with a bike rack on the rear, it made it kind of scary. You definitely will need 4x4 to get up the driveway. Once we arrived from the very private dead end road, the house was very clean. The layout of the bedrooms and bathrooms are a bit wonky with some steps up and down due to the cottage being remodeled from an existing cottage. The separate queen bedroom on the far end of the house was nice for privacy. The house itself is rustic and decorated well. The boys loved the large third floor bedroom with the 4 twin beds. Outside, the water was crystal clear and there is a small wading beach. The firepit is situated on the edge of the breakwall and you can sit in the chairs and enjoy the view. If you have a boat, the Switz is directly across the lake and the Lakeside is around the bluff and would be super easy to go for dinner and back. The fishing was great and we caught a catfish, a rock bass and a few chair pickerel from the dock. The boats going by said there were lake trout about 50 feet form the shore. If the water was warm, the swim dock would have been used but we did take advantage of the paddleboat. I would suggest bringing a snorkel so you can see the fish while swimming. I would highly recommend this house!!

We had a fantastic time at the "O'Cottage." We have seen this house from the water during the times we boated past and were lucky enough to spend a beautiful week there. We had near-complete privacy and hardly saw a car all week. During the week, the kids had the water to themselves. They swam, they tubed, they hiked. We felt totally at east letting them loose to walk in the woods for a hike because of the private location. It was the kind of vacation that we came home tired from because of all the physical activity we took part in. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home with our family!

We've been renting O'Cottage for 7 or 8 years and obviously love it here. Views are unsurpassed. Private and peaceful.

This place is great. It is private and quiet. Fishing is great and the house is up todate and great for a group to spread out in.

Beautiful, lake front home that is a wonderful way to spend the weekend with family/friends. Already booked our stay in 2018.

When we read in the description that O'Cottage is steps from the water, we didn't know what to expect. But, now we do! And they are not kidding! This location is great! Kids could be swimming and we could run in the house for a drink and still supervise them. The boat-watching was fun and the location was very quiet, especially at night. We hope to come back next year. The owner was great to deal with and answered our questions in a lightning-fast manner. Thank you for sharing this gem with us!

A perfect location for a week to recharge from the s.tresses of daily living. We have tried many places on the lake and this, by far, was our favorite. Ample space for the two families to set up in. We loved eating dinner at the picnic table by the water. We made great use of the firepit, too! The house was very clean and well-kept and we enjoyed the tree branch curtain rod especially. Response

This was my family's first visit to Keuka Lake. We had an amazing time! The house was well-kept and clean and gave us plenty of space to relax. The location on the water was unbelievable! We only came for the weekend but wished we could stay longer. We really enjoyed the Windmill craft market, especially the kettle corn.
