Description Description
Equipped with all the comforts of home, this spacious 3 bedroom with large loft, 2.5 bath home comfortably accommodates most oversized families. Located on an oversized lot, Heron Way has over 200' feet of level waterfront and a large dock.

The mouth of Sugar Creek is just off the dock where an exciting 2 mile nature adventure awaits you. More than enough convenient parking is just outside our front door and the surrounding lawn is large enough for most yard games. Mature landscaping and 8' fencing creates privacy not found with most vacation homes.

This home is tastefully decorated and amply furnished with all the amenities from home. The modern kitchen is conveniently located in the center of the home and most rooms offer a Lakeview. The living room has a cathedral ceiling, four skylights, a fieldstone fireplace and large TV. The front sun porch has knotty pine walls, a ceiling fan to keep the summer air moving and 6 sliding glass doors so the sun can pour in. The master bedroom is located on the first floor and boasts a large walk-in closet and an oversized bathroom with 6' whirlpool tub. Off the master bedroom is a lakeside deck that leads to your nature shower and blue hot tub. The homes two other bedrooms are also located on the first floor; one even has a private outdoor patio!   The second-floor oversized sleeping loft (not enclosed) overlooks the living room providing a quiet place to read your favorite novel. The loft also has a 12' covered balcony overlooking the lake.

Note: The docks water depth can vary from 1.5 to 3 feet. The bottom is soft and boats with shallow drafts and trim dock easily. Cattails line the shore and Lilly pads make this one of Keuka's best fishing spots.  Excellent swimming is available 300' off shore, the "sand bar".  A rowboat, a canoe and purple paddle boat are provided for easy access.  Swimming off the dock is poor.

Occupancy: This property is closely monitored for responsible renting.  The maximum occupancy of each home is the number of guests allowed on the premises at any given time.  This includes both day and overnight guests.

Note: Smoking is not allowed in any rental property.

We stayed at Heron Way in 2022 also and always have a relaxing, enjoyable time there.
The house, property and view of the lake are beautiful! It's nice we're able to bring our dog for peace of mind that he's with us on vacation. We will definitely stay at Heron Way again. We worked with Luella and Andrea at Premier Properties who provided exceptional customer service to make our vacation at Heron Way a special and memorable one. Thank you Premier Properties team for another great vacation at the Finger Lakes!

No recommendations, loved the house and all it had to offer for our girl weekend trip!
The house was everything we were looking for. There were 9 of us on a girls weekend trip and the accommodations were PERFECT!!! We plan to book the same house next year for our annual trip. :)

Christmas staying
This house is everything that was written about in the comments before. It is invitingly lit and very clean. We were 10 people (6 adults and 4 children + a dog) and it was spacious and room for all of us. The kitchen was equipped with everything important for cooking and the family area was very pleasant. The view is extraordinary and we even used the hot tub on the deck. I highly recommend coming to this house for a vacation!

We had a great family vacation at Heron Way.  It's a nice, quiet, private location with direct access to Keuka Lake.  We used the fire pit, hot tub, canoe, rowboat and lawn with beautiful, lush grass for yard games.  We very much appreciated being able to bring our two dogs to share our time away.  The weather was better than we'd hoped for! Thank-you FLPP for sharing your fabulous property with us!

Relaxing get away

Heron Way was a nice place to relax, enjoy the scenery of the lake and the heron that visited multiple times a day, and just escape from the normal grind. It was easy to get to and just as described. It would be plenty big enough for a larger party but this was just me and the husband. We enjoyed our time at the property and in the Finger Lakes.

Weekend Getaway

The property was perfect for a girls trip up to the finger lakes, with 5 queen beds and a king bed there is plenty of space. Be warned there is no grocery store near by so bring your provisions with you but other than that it was a great place to stay.

Our group of 11 ladies absolutely loved everything about the property. The house was more than big enough for our entire group and the setting of it was perfect. Loved waking up and enjoying a peaceful cup of coffee on the big deck before exploring!

We had an absolutely fantastic long weekend at Heron Way and can't wait to book it again! The house was immaculate and was stocked with all basic essentials. The furniture was comfortable, the mattresses were firm and felt new. There was plenty of space to sit with others or to find a quiet corner to read. I loved watching the morning sunrise while enjoying a cup of coffee in the sunroom. There were so many ducks and heron - it was beautiful! The only tricky thing was finding the turn-in - the street is very narrow and looks like a driveway. Luckily, Finger Lakes Property placed a sign at the top of the turn-in which made all the difference in finding the road. We would definitely recommend staying here for a nice vacation.

Beautiful Lakefront Setting

This unit was exactly as presented. Large open floor plan and many bedrooms made this a great family retreat location. The row boat was handy, and we caught large and smallmouth bass, pickerel, perch, bluegills, sunfish and rock bass in the surrounding shallow water at the end of the lake. Ospreys, blue herons, ducks, soft shelled turtles visited the area overhead and dock quite often. We enjoyed and used every amenity that the unit offered and would come back again.

Great House and Comfortable Stay!

The view of the lake from the dining room area and deck are stunning. The pictures don’t do it justice! Everything was remarkably clean, and the check in/check out processes were the smoothest I’ve ever had. We were also impressed by the little goody bag that they left for each of the dogs. Beautiful property and the management company was great to deal with - win win for us!

The property was spacious and accommodating. The biggest surprise was the loft having beds for three people, so none of us had to double-up. We enjoyed the deck, hot tub, and spent a ton of time in the kitchen.

The place was great for our first family lake get away. I knew exactly what we were getting based on pictures. The location at the north end of lake worked for us this year, we could kayak,, row, paddle boat, and also had a friend come pick us up on a power boat. Overall, we had an awesome week...

Heron Way is the best house for a large group! I have been staying here with a group of friends yearly for 6 years and cannot imagine staying anywhere else. The house is immaculate and has everything you need for a relaxing, fun getaway. Finger Lakes Premier Properties also make the entire experience so easy. From booking, to check in, to linens, and a welcome gift. I highly recommend Heron Way and Finger Lakes Premier Properties!!!

Just got back from our annual lake house vacation with my family of 8, including our 101 yr old grandmother. This was our first time at this house. It was perfect for our family. There are only 2 steps to get Grams up at the entrance to the house and then she was able to get around the first floor on her own. The fairly level grounds leading to the dock allowed us to wheel her to the boat ramp in her wheelchair and onto the boat without having to circumvent a ton of stairs like many lake houses have. The water at the dock is shallow as described in the house details but we were able to dock a pontoon boat as well as a 22ft. speed boat without any issues. Just raise the trim on the motor. The water is calm once you get past the sandbar, even if the lake is choppy, so docking was never an issue. I think the water was about 2.5ft deep when we were there but I don't know how it would be if the water was shallower. The marina we rented the boats from was walking distance to the house which was convenient. Great open floor plan allowed everyone to enjoy each other's company no matter what room we were in. Well maintained house with an amazing view of the lake. We got lots of use of the hot tub, paddleboat and canoe. The town was a short walk from the house to pick up essentials (eggs, milk) and there was an organic produce stand along the way which we picked up fresh tomatoes and strawberries/cherries several times. Penn Yan is a 10 minute drive away to get to the Tops supermarket and some nice restaurants. My wife and I walked to the Hunt Country Vineyard winery (1.3 miles away) which was a bit of an uphill on the way there but a lot easier downhill walk back after a bunch of wine. The state park is a short boat ride directly across the lake which we took advantage of for picnicking and enjoying the beach. We also rode our bikes there several times (less than 3 miles each way). We had a great experience and hope to come back next year.

We absolutely loved Heron Way, the house was very clean, we had 9 in our party and there was ample room for everybody. Plenty of parking and nice yard. We took our dogs and everything worked out great for them too. There was a nice little gift package for each dog. It's our favorite house that we stayed in at Keuka Lake.

House very comfortable, spacious, clean and well kept. We had a few issues with the dock and two of the boats in need of repair. The agency and owner addressed these issues promptly and even bought a new paddle boat. We were impressed and very happy with how they took care of us and our big family. It was a great week, and we would definitely come back here again. Fishing is great off the dock.

WOW, WOW and WOW. 4 RN's drove over 8hrs each way to have a 3 day weekend together. Everyone shook their heads about spending so much time on the road for such a short stay. Well, I thank you for the weather (I did ask the reservations person to see what she could do...what service!!!). We felt like we had been there for at least a couple of days. So relaxing. The pictures on the web of Heron Way did not do it justice!!! It was beautiful. Could find no fault whatsoever. A couple of comments. Would be nice to mention the need to bring beach towels. Could also use ziploc bags and more than one coffee filter. We could bring all those, just didn't think about it. ALL of us will be back soon with our husbands, so you've got at least 4 additional rentals coming. At least two of us are thinking of bringing family up. And we all will be back as a group. Only one BAD thing...have you ever had a vacation where all of your expectations were exceeded? Well, we just did...that means we will compare EVERY future vacation with this one. Its gonna be a hard act to follow. Thank you so much....
