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.

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

This is our third time renting this lovely property. It is very clean, well equipped and quiet. We had 13 ladies staying at the house and had plenty of room. It is secluded and may seem out of the way, but the view of the lake and the quality of the rental is worth it! If you like to cook in to save money for meals out, this is the place for you. The owner has it well stocked with a hot tub, TV, games, toys, etc. The sunsets are awesome! We are planning to make this an annual event.

We decided to take a week long vacation while attending our daughter's graduation from Alfred University, and boy where we happy. Prior to this week, we had never stayed in the Finger Lakes area.
This house is more than you will expect from a vacation rental. It comes very well stocked and clean. We found it to be very large and comfortable, and the views make it spectacular. The hot tub increased our relaxation.
We also found the surrounding area beautiful. The hills are peppered with some of the best vineyards in the world. There are more than enough to keep you busy, if you choose. Also, all of the meals that we had at the local restaurants were delicious, and that's coming from a guy who loves to critique restaurants.
Our vacation was so fun, relaxing, and exciting that we have decided to go back in autumn. We were so happy with the house, we will be renting from Bill, the owner, again. This time will be staying at his smaller house next door. ( If you consider "sleeps 12" smaller, lol)
We are looking to another great stay in a magnificent area!

Just came back from this place 2 days ago. Rented this place for a friend and family reunion. A very special thanks to Bill to let us stay in this place. We all had pretty much a dream vacation. Great house. Everything was there. I will surely go back.
We have been renting this place for 6 years now ans every year is a blast. No matter what the weather it is a great place to hang out with your friends. We are coming back every year !!!!!!!!!!!!
