The house was amazing with great lake views from the huge deck!! Super clean and rustic! Great for a large group! You feel super secluded yet it is not far from many great wineries and restaurants. Looking forward to come again!!

I visited this lake house for a weekend and I was sad when it was time to leave. I wanted to stay longer. The house is private and accommodated me and my 9 girlfriends with so much room to spare. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals, but we decided to have food delivered instead. The deck overlooking the lake is where we spent most of our time just sipping on coffee in the morning and wine through the day. We visited the adorable small town and did some shopping and eating, we hiked on trails right near the property, we accessed the lake using the private dock, and of course we visited numerous nearby wineries.... It is a stunning location great for family vacations or getaways with your besties....I'm ready to go back!!!

This place is truly off a page of a magazine! It was cozy and clean, perfect for a large group of people! The views of the lake are breathtaking and surreal in the mornings with a hot cup of coffee in hand. Plenty of wineries nearby, as well as a quaint little town just minutes away! So sad we had to leave a great time in such a great place. Can't wait to go back!

I loved my stay in this house. I spent the weekend with 9 of my girlfriends and we all had such a relaxing time because of the spacious house. I loved having my coffee on the deck in the morning and my wine on the deck at night. The house has a rustic feel but with modern accomodations. The great room was perfect for all 10 of us to hang out and socialize together and the dinning table easily fit us all for dinner. We hiked through the woods behind the house and had a picnic on dock that goes with the house. It was the perfect setting for a getaway to relax and breathe in the fresh air of the finger lakes. The house was clean, beautiful and very spacious.

We had a lovely time at this gorgeous property on Keuka Lake. We explored the property, hung out on the dock and enjoyed many cups of coffee and glasses of wine on the deck! All of the beds were comfortable and there were plenty of places to lounge around. Nearby Hammondsport is quaint but cute with a few restaurants and shops. We got to check out two local wineries but there were lots more to choose from (if only we had more time!) I highly recommend Village Taxi and 5 Star Limo of Elmira for your transportation needs. They had availability so we wouldn’t need to designate a driver. Our weekend was a blast and we can’t wait to come back!

We were so happy with the property. We had a small reunion of 8 people and the House was perfect to accommodate that size. The dining room allowed for dinner all together. There are several HUGE decks with beautiful visuals views of the lake. The driveway is steep so be mindful. Brian was great at getting back to me within hours for any question or concern. I only wish we could’ve stayed longer!

We spent a week at this cabin and were delighted with the cabin and overall area. The cabin is spacious and well appointed. There was plenty of room for relaxing, playing games and hanging out on the deck. The cabin sits above the lake and has a great view but is very quiet. The dock is very nice and the lake is great. We rented a boat for two days from Keuka Watersports and had a great time tubing and skiing. Brian was great to deal with and ensured everything was in order for our visit. This was one of the best vacations we have ever had.

My family decided to meet at the Finger Lakes for a few days this summer. There were 9 of us spanning all ages including a 1 yr old, a 6yr old, a 10 yr old, their grandparents, and everything in between. I was wondering if the house would be as pretty as it is in the pictures....it definitely is. Plenty of space to spread out. Some toys and games. We did all of our meals at the house and found the items in the kitchen met every need we had. My mom seemed very happy with that! We spent an entire day on the deck playing games and hanging out. The views from the deck are really beautiful. You almost feel like you’re up in a treehouse. I think it would be great in the fall, too!
We used the kayaks and there were several sizes of life jackets (even for the little one). There is a private pier that goes with the house. The kids were able to fish off of it and we could see fish swimming around because the water was so clear. There are quite a few piers all in the same area. The one thing that should be considered when renting this house is the driveway and walk down to the lake. The reviews are not kidding. It’s a bit steep. The kids and I did the walk up and down a few times but it was certainly an incline. To get to the lake, you walk down the driveway, cross the street, walk down another equally steep walkway, and then go down about 60 stairs. As stated in other places, you can skip the two inclines and drive down (and back up) instead.
I guess our social media pictures show how nice this house really is because we already have a couple friends who also want to book it.
Lastly, I can’t say enough about the quick and easy communication with Brian. He is very responsive to all questions and has good information about the area!
We would love to visit this beautiful place again!
Thank you for everything!
