Description Description

Welcome to Keuka Lake! Helvetia House is a home rich in history and full of charm. Located in Keuka Village, the home offers breathtaking lake views and is just steps away from the Switzerland Inn and the Keg and Barrel, two local favorites.  This vintage home has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths making it great for entertaining family and friends. You will notice a well-appointed kitchen, spacious dining room, and great room opening to a charming covered porch with amazing lake views. During your stay at Helvetia House, you will find reminders of when this home was a hotel in the early 1900s. The bedrooms feature original room numbers and open transoms to allow for natural light and airflow. The historical touches continue with a seasonal sleeping porch overlooking the water. Helvetia House is also home to the original Keuka Yacht Club Bar that is situated in the lower level. Outside, the views of the bluff are nothing short of incredible. A level grassy yard and natural beach provide plenty of room for fun. After you experience a famous Keuka Lake sunset, enjoy the fire pit and roast s'mores. The home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, with the lake drive providing a perfect spot for walking, running or biking.

If you want to explore all that Keuka has to offer, Helvetia House is conveniently located to hiking, golfing, wineries, and museums. The nearby village of Hammondsport, recently voted “America’s Coolest Small Town”, provides even more dining and shopping options. This is truly a one of a kind property!

The house had a terrible septic odor that showed up a few days after we arrived. The deck was unusable on account of the odor. We limited our showers, and the use of the dishwasher but this did not help. A neighbor and a woman walking on the street also commented on the odor. We do not recommend this property at all.

Thank you very much for taking the time to rate your experience at our rental and for calling into our office about your concerns with the septic system. We had a septic vendor go out to this rental to inspect the septic to make sure everything was in working order. The vendor said there wasn't anything wrong with the system. He did inform us that the wind was blowing across the aeration system vents just right and when that happens it can be smelly.  I hope that you will consider staying with us again so that we can have another chance to provide you with a superior experience.

This was a perfect place for family to gather. The house had a great deal of space. It also had an amazing front porch. The location on the lake is beautiful.

Helvetia house was one of our favorite houses that we’ve rented over the years- cool historical property, so comfortable for our large party, lots of nooks and crannies for people to relax in, appreciated the kayaks. Nice level lakefront and beach, perfect for launching sailboards. Loved the updated old rooms upstairs- still with hotel room numbers, beds very comfortable and room AC units kept upstairs cool. We just loved this house!
