Frequently asked questions

We now have an FAQ list that we hope will help
you answer some of the more common ones.

1. Can I rent one of the houses but not the other?

Yes and No.

  • During peak season June 15th through August 31st, we only rent both houses together.

During off season Sept 1st through June 15th, we sometimes will rent one house and not the other. However, if you rent one house, please note that you will more than likely be sharing the lake front space with another family.

We live about an hour away in Rochester but we are available if you have any questions. Just send us a message. You can also ring the doorbell camera and I can answer any questions remotely.

Our houses are located on the NorthWest side of Keuka lake. Just 3 minutes from Penn Yan where you can stock up on groceries, get dinner at the Mexican Restaurant (our favorite), go shopping in town, or rent a boat/jetski from Morgan Marine. Branchport and Keuka Lake state park are both 8 minutes away.

Keuka Taxi service is a good option if you need a ride somewhere. They are located in Penn Yan.

We kindly request that our guests start a load of their dirty towels Friday night/Saturday AM before you check out. This really helps us transition the property for new renters on Sunday afternoon. There are 3 washer/dryer sets on the property.
