Canandaigua lakefront cottages for family fun

Located in: Canandaigua
Our two-cottage lakeside compound is ideal for an extended family vacation. During midsummer, we prefer to rent the two cottages as a unit. In June and September, we will rent them separately. Each cottage is fully equipped with kitchen and bath (two baths, in one case), fireplace, and screened porch. They share a generous lawn area with about 200 feet of level lakefront. If you are like our family, the group includes some active, athletic members and some who prefer to spend their vacation napping in the hammock or doing jigsaw puzzles. This set-up gives you a great combination of family togetherness and privacy.

The eight-acre property is next to Menteth Creek and looks due south, toward the receding hills of Naples and toward Bare Hill on the east side, enjoying a stunning view from the west side of Canandaigua Lake.

This property has been in the same family since 1922. The Stone Cottage was built in 1969, replacing an earlier cottage. It has a great room with stone fireplace, living-dining room, and an open stair up to the master suite. The kitchen has a pass-through to the screened dining porch with built-in grill. The living room has a sliding glass door to an open porch enclosed by a low stone wall. There is a rear porch off the kitchen with clotheslines for bathing suit and towel drying. The two first-floor bedrooms have twin beds and a full bath, while the upstairs master suite has a king size bed and a bath with shower. This house also has laundry facilities. Overall occupancy is six, and square footage is about 1600. An extra bonus - a grand piano!

The smaller cottage was built in 1948 for our grandmother -- we call it Gram's House. If you visited your grandmother at a lakefront cabin, this cottage will seem very familiar. It has a large screened porch across the whole front of the house, with a dining room table that expands to seat ten -- also a chaise longue and wicker chairs, and a pass-through to the kitchen. The living room and kitchen are knotty pine with a stone fireplace. The house has three bedrooms, one with queen, one with twins, and one with bunk beds, plus one full-size bath. Occupancy is six, and square footage is about 900 square feet.

The property has level lawns surrounding the cottages, plenty of parking space, and an open field between the cottage and West Lake Road, so there is plenty of privacy. There is a tennis court (good condition, shared) on the property, and lawn area for croquet, badminton, bocce, or frisbee. Our lakefront has a stone breakwall in front of the houses, a 16-foot wooden dock with ladder, a swim raft and a shale beach (perfect for stone skipping). Lake bottom is shale. We do not offer the use of any boats, a hoist or a mooring, but past renters have brought their own or rented boats for daytime use from lakeside marinas. The shale beach area is level, so you can back a trailer to the lake and launch your small or mid-sized boat from there. The property has plenty of mature shade trees and perennial gardens. We have a large and heavily used bonfire spot near the beach.

We only rent for a few weeks a year, typically in July and August, though we sometimes add some May, June, or September weeks to our schedule. There is no dishwasher, but we do have a washer and dryer, basic cable TV, internet access, Wifi, and a VCR and DVD player. We occasionally rent on a short-term basis for intimate, quiet weddings or other special events of up to 75 guests. Contact us for details!
