Description Description
Make your trip to the Heart of Honeoye one to remember for years to come! Located on the southwest shore of Honeoye Lake, this modern 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom lake home is beautifully furnished and inviting. You’ll be swept away by the beautiful lake views as soon as you enter the door!

Just inside the entry way to your left, you’ll find the spacious, first floor master bedroom with a queen size bed. To the right of the entry way is a conveniently located laundry room with full size washer and dryer.

Beautiful hardwood floors stretch down the hall, and lead into the open, country kitchen and spacious great room. Wall to wall windows and sliding glass doors allow you to take in the views of the lake all day long from inside, or step out onto the deck and experience the benefits of lakefront living first hand.

The kitchen features granite countertops, custom cabinets, and matching stainless steel appliances. An island with bar style seating for two, allows guests to prepare and serve buffet style meals with room to spare. The charming dining set seats 6 guests comfortable and enjoys a view of the lake and outside deck. A large, comfortable sectional sofa offers plenty of space for relaxing, and the beautiful stone, gas fireplace offers an additional heat source during the winter months and a cozy atmosphere for guests looking to enjoy a movie on the flat screen TV.

Just off the kitchen, you’ll find the first floor bathroom, with tile flooring and a shower/tub combo.

Travel upstairs and find a bedroom perfect for the children in your family. A full/twin bunk set allows them to have their own fun and private space for the duration of your vacation. Across the hall you’ll find the third bedroom with queen bed. This bedroom is uniquely designed with a set of windows that allows additional lighting and a partial lake view through the open loft on the other side.

Down the hall you’ll find the second floor full bath, featuring pretty tile flooring and a shower/tub combo. This floor is complete with a loft game area, with a TV and PS3 gaming console and games, a sofa, and a lovely covered balcony overlooking the lake, perfect for enjoying the sunrise or watching the lakefront activities below.

Outside a grill and firepit are available for your enjoyment, as well as a seasonal dock for sunbathing or fishing. A small yard is located between the house and lake, and is perfect for small children to play.

Heart of Honeoye is located less than 10 minutes from the quaint village of Naples, where guests can enjoy a variety of dining, visit the Hazlitt Red Cat winery, and shop for groceries during their stay. During the winter months, skiing can be enjoyed at nearby Bristol Mountain or even at Hunt Hollow just down the road. With Canandaigua an easy 20 minute drive to the east, many area attractions are right at your fingertips!

Comfortable House
Stayed at Heart of Honeoye for the holiday week with my family and overall, it was a great week. The house was comfortable with plenty of amenities and gorgeous views, and the small air conditioning units were sufficient to take the edge off during a warm, summer week, especially when combined with the ceiling fans in each bedroom. First the positives - the kitchen was well stocked with plenty of pots, pans, dishes and utensils which made living in the house very easy for the week. While we didn't take advantage of it, the house also included a gaming system and plenty of DVD's if you are looking for quiet movie night. It also included some kayaks and a canoe if you can't bring your own. The location was great with a perfect sized yard and just enough lakefront. A small firepit and some firewood was also provided which made the s'mores nights a lot easier, although I'd still recommend bringing or buying some of your own wood and kindling to get the fire started. The neighbors were all great and welcoming even though we were only there a week. A few minor negatives, although not nearly substantial. The house could have been a bit cleaner upon our arrival. There were streaks all over the countertops, stovetop and appliances which showed that there was at least an effort made to clean the place before we arrived, albeit with a bit of a greasy rag. It was also apparent that a large, shedding dog had stayed the previous week as there was dog hair all over the floor. It's important to note that other than a small dresser in the downstairs bedroom, there was nowhere to store our clothes for the week. Each room had a closet, but there were only a handful of hangers for clothes so we ended up placing most of our clothes on the floor. The homeowner may want to consider a small investment in dressers for each of the bedrooms or at least make sure that there are sufficient hangers in the closet to support families that may want to stay at the house. If you are there for a week, it's not ideal to live out of a suitcase. The most substantial negative, and this had nothing to do with the house, is that Honeoye Lake is not really a swimming lake. The seaweed and algae dominate close to shore and at least fifteen to twenty feet off the dock, which makes swimming impossible. If you have kids that are counting on swimming, other lakes may be better options because you cannot swim off the dock of this property. We still made the most of it by bringing our inner tubes to float, but it did put a bit of a damper on things not being able to swim. It also would have been nice if the entire dock had been installed. The photos online showed a wider dock at the end which would have made water access and fishing a bit easier, but parts of the dock were still in the yard and not installed. None of this prevented us from having a great week at the lake. There was plenty of fishing, kayaking, evening fires and game nights to create plenty of memories. There are also plenty of breweries and wineries within proximity to the house if that is something that you are looking for. We hit a brewery each night and didn't drive more than 15 minutes to get to any of them. Overall, we had a great week!

Beautiful view of the lake from the balcony and from inside the house when the weather is bad. A heron hung around the dock a few days while we were there.
