A truly unique blend of traditional lake house and contemporary updates, the ideal lakeside vacation is well within your reach. This cozy, 3 bedroom family-style cottage with one hundred and forty feet of beautiful, gradual entry lake frontage is waiting for you!
Just a quick, 10 minute drive from Penn Yan and conveniently located less than 3 miles from Morgan Marine on the east side of Keuka Lake, On The Rocks may be the perfect small group vacation rental. Plenty of level parking, enough for up to 4 vehicles and trailers, is on the highest of the three tiers of the property's lot. Just a few yards away, through the charming wooden arbor spanning the walkway and down a handful of steps you will find a block patio sitting area and propane barbecue grill, right next to the home's main entrance. As you enter, you will notice the level plank walkway along the side of the home, with an enticing glimpse of one corner of the large deck that wraps around the front of the home. Access to the basement garage/boathouse, which also houses the laundry area and the second full size refrigerator/freezer, is found at the bottom of just a few steps at the corner of the deck.
Step directly into the main living area to find a brand new half bath to your left, conveniently located just inside the door. As you enter, it is impossible to ignore the view offered by beautiful oversized thermal pane windows looking toward the south, allowing in plenty of natural light and making it easy to enjoy that book you've been meaning to get to while lounging on the comfy, over-stuffed furniture. The beautifully carved fireplace mantle, framing the wood burning brick fireplace, still remains, giving the room a cozy feel.
To the rear of the living room a dining area adjoins, complete with large family-style table and plenty of seating for the entire group of eight. Take one step up and to the left and enter the adorable, galley-style kitchen with bright, overhead lighting and additional light from a window over the double-bowl sink. The full bath, equipped with a stand-up shower stall, will be found directly off the kitchen.
Continue through the kitchen to access the home's bedrooms. You will be delighted to see that each bedroom also affords breathtaking views of the area through more, recently updated large windows that will allow you to let in a cool, fresh breeze from the lake if you wish.
The first bedroom, directly across from the kitchen, offers a queen bed. To the left, the second bedroom, also furnished with a queen, has sliding patio doors, allowing the guests occupying this room direct, private access to the wrap-around deck. The third bedroom, across the hall from the other two, is equipped with two sets of twin bunk beds, perfect for the children in the group!
Spend the afternoon in the shade provided by large, mature trees over a free-standing deck at the edge of the yard. Sun worshipers will enjoy a large deck overlooking the lake that provides plenty of space for soaking up the afternoon sunshine, watching the children swim and play in the water, or preparing the day's catch for the barbecue. For those that prefer lounging closer to the water, just head down a few steps directly from the deck, sit and sway gently with the waterfront breezes in the wooden swing, or park your favorite lounger on the dock or the level, shale waterfront. From the beach, guests can also easily access the laundry area and second refrigerator located in the garage basement/boathouse, also convenient for storing beach toys and belongings when not in use. A seasonal dock with a boat hoist is available for guest enjoyment as well.
