Owner has travelled the world and respectfully stay/rented other people's homes. I would like to do the same and be treated as I have treated other hosts. Owner is a real estate Broker selling commercial and residential real estate and has earned an International MBA. Owner is health conscious and exercises 4-5 days a week. Swimming in the lake in June-September is very enjoyable.
Very nice waterfront property. Other than the main level sliding door being difficult to open and close, property was very nice to stay at.

Stayed July, 2020
Enjoyed my stay in Canandaigua. It was a great location to base out of to enjoy the lake but also explore Letchworth State Park, Watkins Glen State Park and the wine region of the Finger Lakes. Nancy was an attentive host, on property early mornings sweeping/prepping the outdoor area to ensure a beautiful environment For her guest. She is very knowledgeable of the area and offered great recommendation of places to go and things to see. I found the property to be consistent with the listing and well equipped for someone who likes to cook with a beautiful range and oven. I enjoyed the deck and views. Thanks for a nice stay.
