Description Description
Strawberry Cottage is nestled half way down the west side of Canandaigua Lake in a private, wooded setting.  The driveway from West Lake Road leads down to this charming lake home, situated just above the lake and surrounded by mature trees, providing a feeling of seclusion and peace.

Built in 1939, Strawberry Cottage offers guests the look and feel of days gone by along with modern conveniences.  Beautiful wood paneled walls, a gorgeous field stone fireplace, and an eclectic blend of antique and modern furniture create a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere to enjoy your private getaway.
The main entry in the rear of the cottage leads into the spacious living room, which features a flat screen cable TV, sofas, lounge chairs, and a card/breakfast table overlooking the lake.  To the left is a hallway that leads to the first floor laundry and half bath.  To the right is a set of French doors that open out to the airy and spacious sunporch.  Here guests can sit down to a meal at the dining table that seats 8, situated just off the kitchen, or enjoy conversation or good book on the comfortable sofas and chairs facing the water and outdoor living area. The charming country kitchen is located just off the living room and sunroom, and features beautiful, country farmhouse style cabinetry and plenty of kitchen ware for cooking large meals at home.

The stairs in the rear of the living room lead upstairs to the generous sleeping accommodations.  At the south end of the hallway is the master bedroom, which contains a queen bed and a full sleeper sofa, a master bathroom with an old fashioned, clawfoot tub with a shower ring, and a small covered balcony overlooking the outdoor living area.  To the left of the stairs is a bedroom with a queen bed, and an additional bedroom with 2 twin beds.  Across the hall is a full bathroom with a shower.  The north end of the hall leads to an additional two bedrooms, one with a queen bed, and the other with 2 twin beds and a full sleeper sofa, and a full bathroom across the hall with a shower/tub combo.

Directly outside the sunporch is a gravel patio, with garden furniture and a grassy area at the top of the stairs for outdoor games.  The boardwalk in the front of the property continues to the stairs leading to the deck above the lake and the lakefront.  There is natural, pebble beach on the south side of the huge permanent dock, which allows for gradual entry and wading.  
Located just 15 minutes from Naples and Canandaigua, Strawberry Cottage is also convenient to many popular attractions!

Beautiful lake view but be prepared for old school cottage living

The cottage is set in the woods and had a beautiful view of the lake. The family enjoyed swimming and hanging out on the dock. There was plenty of seating and room to eat and converse together. Not having AC was definitely a problem in July as the bedrooms were on the second floor and heat rises. Check in at 4 pm meant windows couldn’t be opened to release heat before arriving. Things were a little better once all the windows and screen doors were opened but one screen door was torn and unusable. Luckily the weather got cooler and less humid. Overall the living area was clean but every windowsill and screen door had dead bugs and the outdoor furniture had to be cleaned before using it. We called property management to report bugs and screens and they responded quickly and were willing to send housekeeping back out but the screen wasn’t fixed because this property lacked a maintenance contract with VRBO.

Strawberry was as we had hoped and in many ways exceeded our expectations. Our neighbors were great too.

We loved Strawberry Cottage. Everything about it was perfect. It is very well equipped, and clean. The location is great. It’s close enough to the grocery store, but far enough to get away from it all. Best of all, was the beautiful dock, and lake. We spent the entire time there. We would love to rent again!

I would say we enjoyed the entire property. The doc and lakefront was key! Our kids loved swimming and we used the lake front everyday! Nice grill area-very peaceful. Good amount of bathrooms and plenty of toys if you needed them. Loved that in walking distance you can check out Wegman's organic farm. A very special place.
