Description Description
The perfect representation of Canandaigua as the "Chosen Spot," this luxurious home provides a private escape to the picturesque shores of Canandaigua Lake while being minutes from the finest wineries and attractions in the Finger Lakes.

Throughout this home, emphasis is placed on the exceptional lake view, with lavish windows and glass doors in every room facing the water! To the left of the main entry is a stunning great room, with comfortable lounge furnishings and a dining table that seats 12 comfortably. A fieldstone gas fireplace extends floor to ceiling on the north wall and overhead sits an elegant chandelier. A wet bar in corner of the dining area offers a wine cooler and ample wine glasses to enjoy a great bottle of Finger Lakes wine.

Across the threshold is an extensive gourmet kitchen – a chef’s dream! Granite countertops and custom cabinetry add to the feel of opulence in this oversized room. Matching, top quality appliances feature a chef’s size gas range and double ovens. A preparation table with butcher block top and sink allow for easy meal prep. Bar stools and a breakfast bar along the far side of the kitchen allow for easy conversation during the cooking process.

Just off the kitchen is a full bathroom, with tiled shower, commode, and granite sink vanity. An oversized family room on the south side of the home offers guests a place to kick back and relax on hot summer days, with a large flat screen TV, sectional sofa, and giant beanbags – they are a great source of fun for children! A large office off the family room doubles as a bedroom with a queen sleeper sofa and a built-in desk. This sleeping area offers limited privacy, as there are no blinds obstructing the outstanding lake views; however it is a delightful sight to wake up to in the morning!

In the rear of the home is a stunning master suite, with elaborate architectural ceilings, a king size bed, en suite bathroom with granite countertops, double size tiled shower with overhead and side shower heads, an oversized, deep garden tub, his and her sinks, and commode. Off the master bedroom is a lovely rear patio overlooking the field behind the house adorned with a table and chairs for enjoying the magnificent sunsets.

The second floor holds the home’s additional four bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. The bedroom to the right at the top of the stairs features a queen bed, walk out to a private balcony overlooking the water, and an en suite bathroom with shower. The twin to this bedroom sits just across the hall, and is identical in all aspects. A recreation area at the left of the top of the stairs offers younger guests the enjoyment of an Xbox for gaming or watching movies on a full size sofa. Off the recreation area is another bedroom with twin beds and access to a shared bathroom. The last bedroom in the rear of the property contains a queen bed and a spacious double room where adults with infants will have space to set up a crib or pack and play. This bedroom shares a full bathroom with the twin bedroom.

A lovely, oversized screen porch just off the kitchen features an outdoor fieldstone fireplace for heat and ambiance in the evenings. Dining tables and lounge chairs give this room dual use; enjoy a good book out or enjoy an outdoor meal! This area also holds a built in spa, which awaits you after a long day by the water (seats 5-6 adults). Additional outdoor dining space is available on the south side of the property with a barbeque grill and seating. Comfortable lounge furniture is available, and the outstanding view of the water makes this area a favorite spot for spending quality time with friends and family.

The house is beautiful and afforded us the space we needed for the eleven of us, five being kids ages 3-11! Having the kayaks and life jackets available for our use was much appreciated and we were out on the lake daily. The huge bean bags were a big hit with the youngest kids, but also the adults found them to be quite comfortable to lie on while watching a movie. The beach front and dock area were wonderful, and the stony beach was not a problem at all…the stones were a bonus, actually, and provided a lot of entertainment for the kids…skipping them on the water and building with them. We also appreciated having firewood and were able to enjoy the fire pit on the beach. Beautiful home, beautiful location…beautiful memories were made there!

The house and grounds are beautiful. We were surprised to see a family of minks (we saw 4 at once), who apparently have a nest under the patio stairs - but they were okay.

Our three generational group ( grandparents 80, 2 children and their spouses and 5 grandchildren from 16-29) all said it was a perfect reunion. The house and area provided everything we could want.

Excited to return!

A wonderful stay!  Accomodations were perfect!  Spacious, comfortable and inviting!  With the wineries all so close and adorable Hammondsport a stone throw away, plenty to do even in the late fall!  Will definitely return to the house in the summer season (and again in Fall)!  Thank you!

Peaceful Sanctuary was an excellent facility. The household times, dishes, silverware, wine glasses, linens, etc., that were available, a nice touch. It was a first class facility with all appropriate amenities.
