Keuka Lake Wine Trail | Hot Tub | Free Wi-Fi | Family Friendly | Large Level Yard | Gradual Entry

Located in: Hammondsport
Welcome to Sapphire Shores, a spectacular lakefront property located at the midpoint of Keuka Lake's western shores. With five spacious bedrooms and three full baths situated on 100 feet of gradual entry shoreline, this beautiful two story family cottage, brand new to the Finger Lakes vacation rental market for Fall 2019, is destined to be the setting for your most memorable vacation yet!

A tree-lined drive carries guests from West Lake Road to the spacious parking area located directly at the home's doorstep, where there is plenty of room for up to four vehicles and/or trailers. With only two steps from the parking area to reach the wrap-around porch where two of the entrances to the home are located, unpacking your vehicles can be accomplished quickly and with ease, provided you are able to ignore the distractions of the six-person hot tub located next to the cottage and the beautiful lake sparkling just beyond!

The main entrance to the cottage leads into a spacious foyer. Just beyond is the first of five bedrooms, offering a queen bed, large bureau, plenty of closet space and a wall-mounted climate control unit. With a private entrance from the wrap-around deck through patio sliders and a full bathroom just a few steps away, this bedroom is ideal for those that might struggle with steps or appreciate a bit of solitude on occasion.

Continue through the foyer toward the front of the cottage to find the bright and beautiful open-concept living area with huge windows and open sightlines that allow guests a 180 degree view of the water and beautiful yard. The kitchen, equipped with full size glass-top electric stove, French door style refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and drip coffee maker, has loads of storage space, and a small kitchen island adds to the already generous amount of counter space. The typical pots and pans, dishes, glasses, and utensils one would normally need to prepare and enjoy your favorite meals and snacks are provided.

Just beyond the kitchen is a large, sturdy dining table for eight, while the living area is beyond and directly overlooking the waterfront is filled with comfortable, oversized furnishings and possesses a décor with a nautical flair and soothing color palette that complements the natural colors of the lake, all surrounding a 55” cable-equipped Smart TV.

Through a doorway adjacent to the refrigerator the first of three full bathrooms is found, as is the stackable washer/dryer and the staircase to the second story. Two beautiful stained glass panels installed on the stairwell add some unique style, while the antique light fixture above adds a dash of elegance.

The second story of the home, where the remaining four bedrooms and two bathrooms are found, is equally as spacious and appealing as the first. The head of the staircase opens into a large, open landing, where two separate alcoves can be found - comfortable furnishing groups to create additional gathering places are planned for the near future and will be in place for 2020. Skylights located throughout the second level rooms bring in an abundance of natural light, creating airy, bright, and inviting spaces.

The master bedroom, with king bed, contemporary furnishings, high ceilings, plentiful windows, and private en-suite bath with walk-in glass front shower and vanity is surprisingly large; the small private balcony accessible though sliding patio doors is the cherry on top.

Also on the second story, bedroom 2 offers a queen bed, bureau, and chest of drawers. Bedroom 3 is equipped with two twin beds, custom built-in drawers, as well as a generous amount of closet space. Bedroom 4, also outfitted with a nice sized closet, is to be furnished in plenty of time for the 2020 summer season with a twin over twin bunkbed. The remaining full bath is also on this level – recently updated and jaw-droppingly gorgeous with vaulted ceilings, huge windows, and an enormous vanity - is also outfitted with a shower/tub combo, ideal for groups with small children.

As beautiful as the interior of this cottage is, it struggles to compare to the breathtaking environment in which it is located. Carefully designed and built to maximize your enjoyment of the lake and the outdoors, guests will delight in the sense of seclusion created by an abundance of mature shade trees strategically located throughout the property, all of which is level and grassy.

An exit from the living room opens directly to the roomy deck overlooking the water, where the gas grill can also be found. A bar height outdoor dining table provides outdoor seating for six, and just a few steps away to another section of the deck a grouping of comfortable outdoor furnishings awaits; continue to follow the deck that surrounds this part of the house to find the six-person hot tub.

Between the cottage's decks and the waterfront lies a unique, custom-built sunken fire pit created entirely from natural stone. With plenty of room for the entire group to gather 'round, an evening campfire with a glass of your favorite Finger Lakes vintage or micro-brew while roasting marshmallows and gazing at the stars is an idyllic setting in which to end each day on the lake and make plans for the next.

At the edge of the grassy yard, a slight descent begins to the shale beach; the entire 100 feet of waterfront is gradual entry, again perfect for small children. Walk along the waterfront to the southern perimeter of the property to find the sturdy, recently built permanent dock. Guests are encouraged to bring along their fishing gear as the fishing on this section of the lake is known to be particularly good, and are welcome to bring along their bumpers and lines and tie off their boats up to 5000 lbs. and 24 feet in length directly to the dock – several pairs of durable cleats are available.

With plenty of space inside and out and conveniently located near the midpoint of Keuka Lake's west side, Sapphire Shores is an excellent vacation rental option for larger or extended families that is certain to be one of your favorite vacation destinations. Let's start planning your Finger Lakes Getaway today!

The property manager offers a $3000 accidental damage policy at the cost of only $39, as well as trip interruption insurance (cost varies by reservation). Please be aware that these offers are separate from the opportunity to purchase a damage insurance policy with a lower face value at a higher cost that will be presented by HomeAway. Damage Insurance purchased through the property manager provides the additional benefit of management of all damage insurance claims on your behalf. Please note that the property manager will require signature of a rental agreement after booking; 'Ask the Manager A Question' for rental agreement and/or cancellation policy specifics.
