About Wayne J Klumpp
I purchased raw land and personally designed and built my summer residence, which I now will share with you. Over the years I have made many alterations and additions including added decks and an outbuilding.....now dubbed the "Love Shack", a beautiful place to house added quests at an added cost of $500 per week. A special hideaway with a kitchenette, half bath, and outside heated shower.
Wayne J Klumpp purchased the land for this Cottage in 1980
Why Wayne J Klumpp chose Branchport:
Initially, I boated all of the finger lakes in search of the right lake. Keuka was the answer...the jewel of the finger lakes. Then I spent 2 years in quest of the right location....a perfect beach with no break walls, shade trees for my fair complected children, a Westside location to avoid parching afternoon heat from the sun found on the opposite shore, ample parking with a setback from the highway, and most importantly "no stairs" so typically required on this Lake. Then I fulfilled a lifelong dream to build my own home with my own hands!
What makes this Cottage unique:
I then designed the height of the cottage to be above water level by 6 feet so as to afford a view of the beachfront to insure a careful watch over toddlers while enjoying the fantastic views, the water traffic, the ducks, etc!
We rented this house for a long weekend with our teenage boys & it was perfect. The lake is steps away, canoes, kayaks, life jackets are available, and the multi-tiered deck with plenty of seating overlooking the lake was the icing on the cake. The bedrooms inside are on the small side (hopefully that's not why you came!), but the house is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The houses are very close together, but we didn't find privacy or noise to be a problem. The owner was also very helpful with local recommendations and available for questions/concerns. Would definitely recommend.

We rented the cottage for a last minute getaway weekend, and it was perfect! I could sit out on the deck all day, and the outside shower is great! We had several people there with mobility issues, and they were able to enjoy lake time thanks to the easy access and no stairs to access the cottage. Thank you for a spectacular getaway!

We rented this house for a girls weekend in Nov, adorable house and perfect location for the Keuka Wine Trail. FYI there is no internet or TV in the fall/winter months, which we were not aware of until after we booked. But otherwise it was a great house on the lake.

We were very happy with our stay at this cozy house right on Lake Keuka. The couple we shared the house with also said it was a great choice. Sitting in front of the fire, kayaking and exploring the area made for a great stay. Thanks Wayne!

My family had a fantastic weekend at your lake house. The property was exactly as described and was perfect for our needs. It was so nice to be able to get all of us together and spend time on Keuka Lake. Thank you for renting to us. I will discuss with my families about renting both properties for a summer outing. Again, thanks!!

This was our first vacation in 8 years as a family. It was perfect. We were able to relax at the lake, paddle around Lake Keuka and make s’mores in the fire pit. Thank you for making this a memorable vacation. The property was fantastic. We plan on returning in the future.

Wayne's cottage on the lake is simply beautiful. The views of Keuka Lake are incredible! We went here as a family for about a week and had a great time. Wayne met us there and showed us around the property, including how to use the boat and helpful information for the area. The only thing was there was a few cobwebs in the house we had to clean in the corners and windows when we arrived, but other than that, the home was very clean. The place was exactly as the listing describes, with all amenities. My favorite part was the skylights all over the house! Just beautiful! We had a fire every night, and my dad went fishing and rode on the boat everyday! Thanks Wayne!

Lots of amenities in this cottage, and the extra outbuilding was sweet! The level beach was just right for kids and adults, and the large deck offered a lovely view.
