Just off the dining area is a charming kitchen, fully equipped for all your cooking requirements. To the far side of the living room, you’ll find the master bedroom with a 4 poster Queen Size bed.

Sliding glass doors off these bedrooms lead you outside to the lower deck, where Adirondack chairs await your relaxation. Enjoy the day sunbathing on the dock, entertain at the outdoor kitchen/grill, or take out the kayak that is available for guests use. “The Sunken Cork” is located just minutes away from the small town of Hammondsport, which is known for its small town charm, historic downtown shopping, great dining, and delicious ice cream.

Beautiful and Relaxing Stay
We booked this for a family birthday weekend and it was perfect. The location is amazing, right on the water, but also on a quiet street. The check in process was easy. The house was very clean. We had family over and they loved it. There is plenty of room for guests to visit. It’s so peaceful! We did not want to leave! Thank you for a wonderful birthday weekend!

My family and I stayed at The Sunken Cork 06/17-06/19 and had a wonderful visit!! I was a bit leery to rent "site unseen"' however, the write up and reviews were spectacular and certainly exceeded our expectations!! The floorplan, cleanliness, and just the lake view was spectacular. Just the little welcoming touches were spot-on. I will certainly stay here again as it definitely exceeded our expectations! Thank you to the owners for opening their home as it was a special time with my family by continuing our annual visits for the past 30 years and making lasting memories at Watkins Glen.

Beautiful Area

Beautiful area and lake. Very quiet. House was very beat up, needs a lot of repairs. House was basically clean except for showers in bathrooms especially downstairs needs to be replaced. Very old and dirty with stains and mold that can’t be removed. Carpet is not pleasant. Screen door was broken in downstairs bedroom so it couldn’t be used. Outdoor area was large and beautiful but not maintained. I had to wipe all outdoor furniture down with cleaning spray as it was filthy. Outdoor grill area was not cleaned and all tile and grill was full of grease. Outdoor sink was full of leaves and dirt. Dock is black with dirt so if you went barefoot your feet turned black. With cost of this property it was very disappointing that at least at beginning of season everything outside was cleaned and power washed. The outside is probably 85% of why everyone rents this house so not understanding the neglect.

A Wonderful Spot!

This was a great spot for friends to be together; we couldn’t have been any more on the water!! Coffee on the dock, kayaking, swimming, grilling…it was all perfect!

Awesome Time!

We loved our 4 day stay at the Sunken Cork! The dock is amazing and we enjoyed every evening hanging out to the serenity of the lake. The open area was awesome and so much deck room! The beds were fine ( from earlier remark) but we all brought our own pillows ( personal choice and covid..). The linens were vacuum sealed and we felt they took the extra measure. We were 6 adults, celebrating my kids both graduating college and had no celebration because of pandemic. We had a great time visiting Wineries, breweries and local shopping. My only negative was the limited cookware available but we made do . Would totally stay here again and the neighborhood was great for walking the dogs.

This property is gorgeous. It is right on the lake and the setting is wonderful. We watched the sun set each evening. The beds were all comfortable and the building is in very good condition. Comfortable and good sized living room with nice furniture. The kitchen has what you need to cook and plenty of dishes and glasses. The deck is spacious and the kids had a ball. Our family is 7 people, Grandfather & Grandmother, Mom & Dad and three girls 10, 7 and 4 years old. We fit in just fine. The website says will sleep 9, the last two would be on the living room pull out sofa which looked like a poor choice, we opted not to use it at all. Finally, the place was clean and well appointed. We would come back next season and stay there again.

Excellent/would rent again. Dock is phenomenal with boat lift and abundance of space

Sunken cork is a very nice place. Awesome dock, decks, boat hoist and outdoor kitchen that kept the cocktails on the deck level icy cold. Kids had a blast on the kayaks provided. Have stayed at many other places on the lake over the last 7 years and this was by far the best. Only complaint is we had to leave.

If you enjoy being closer to Hammondsport and 12.5 miles from Penn Yan this location is perfect. It's a fabulous place if you need to bring your 4 legged friends too! The outdoor space is amazing and possibly the best aspect of the property. Inside has a fully stocked kitchen and all amenities you will need for your stay. I suggest you bring cleaning supplies and some extra blankets. We had a great time and can't wait to get back to the lake.

October 2017 Stay

We, along, with our friends had a great time! The house is beautiful and very clean. The view was amazing! Our only suggestion of an improvement would be a new mattress or mattress topper. The beds are way to hard and uncomfortable. Other then that, we really enjoyed our stay and would come back again!
