Beautiful Keuka Lake!

Located in the Heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country - the top destination in the finger-lakes due to the water clarity and incredible views.

Our home is perfectly located 1/2-way between Hammondsport (awarded "America's Coolest small town") and Branchport NY. This lake has amazing vistas and tons of restaurants right on the lake – both accessible by car or boat!

Our home was just built in 2014, directly on the water in a protected cove. The property is flat with no stairs – from the driveway to waters' edge. (the huge deck has just 2 steps). Check out the photos of the beautiful, brand new dock with attached sunning area. Your family & friends will love this spot for swimming, fishing and sunning. The dock has a boat whip provided for your boat (can accommodate up to 26'). The lake is 15' depth at the end of the dock.

This property has 70' of lake frontage and plenty of grass for family games. A 16' fire-pit with plenty of seating for those evening s'mores.

There is plenty of off-street parking, again, with no steps into the house. Unlike most other houses on the lake, your vehicle will be completely off the street and easy access into the house.

There are three first floor bedrooms: one with a King sized bed and two with Queen beds, closets and dressers. The three rooms share a forward designed bathroom (or "buddy bath"), three separate sinks, toilet and shower all with separate doors to accommodate up to 4 people at a time. There's no waiting in this lakehouse.

The first floor also has an additional half bathroom and complete laundry room – tons of space. The brand-new kitchen is absolutely beautiful and the kitchen table can accommodate 10 people and 2 more at the breakfast bar.

The entire house is air-conditioned with a 2 zone GEOTHERMAL (green) system! First floor family has gas fireplace with fieldstone facing, hardwoods throughout with plush carpeting in the bedrooms.

The best view in the house is from the 1st floor, 2 story sunroom – gorgeous views from 180 degrees. 3 sets of sliding glass doors open onto an expansive deck with sun chairs and table, built in deck seating for 12+ along with a gas-grille which is plumbed in so you'll never run out of gas in the middle of cooking your steaks!

The second floor includes two bedrooms. The master has a King-sized bed and it's own full bath with a walk in shower and double sinks. It also has it's own lakeside balcony- wake up on the lakeside to the sunrise every morning. The second bedroom is over 20' long and has three twin beds and a double futon along with huge windows to let the air & light in on those breezy lake days.

Wait till you see the "secret room" on the second floor – hidden by a moveable bookcase… another huge room with table, chairs and couches for reading & relaxing.

Go fishing from the huge dock or take either of the provided kayaks out for a ride (life jackets are provided and mandatory)- you'll fall in love with this lake.

There's plenty to do on Keuka. Many of the local restaurants have live music on the weekends, award winning wineries and even some micro-breweries are popping up.

Amazing Lakehouse!

We spent a long weekend at this property, and loved it! We all agreed it was the best lake house we have ever rented on Keuka Lake! Marisa was wonderful to work with, and even sent me a message to make sure we got in ok, not to mention the complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival!

Perfect for our group of 13. Well laid out home and lake access was the best. Great parking.

This was the best property we have experienced in the 35 plus years we have been visiting Keuka Lake (the only Finger Lake in our opinion). Keuka State Park was very convenient for putting in our boat. Do tell others that the right of way connected to your driveway made it easy to park our trailer while it was attached to our huge Expedition. While we numbered 13, we often had 20 plus for dinners and impromptu concerts. Kitchen was very well appointed and the grill was excellent. The speakers were a wonderful addition. I shared this with Marisa, but the only thing I would add are those little strainers for the sink to catch all the food bits when we washed dishes. We scoured those out with our hands and threw them away. They would be much cheaper and less problematic than a garbage disposal. That is our opinion — it ought to be yours! Many thanks for opening up your home to very grateful strangers. Take care.

Ideal Home in an Ideal Setting

Everything was just as described, if not better. The home is wonderful, spacious and the perfect locale for our three generations of family coming together and celebrating a summer and Keuka Lake together. I LOVED this place. Marisa was super easy to contact and always responded to my questions within minutes. Jumping off the dock was our favorite activity, and cooking large meals was not a problem.

Everything you could want or need while on vacation.

Our family had an amazing time vacationing at this home. There was plenty of room for 8 adults and 3 kids. We spent our days outside on the deck, fishing, swimming, or playing yard games. At night, we gathered around the table and told stories and played board games.

The owners are super helpful! Willing to answer questions.

This house has everything you could possibly want and/or need while on vacation. We hope to come back next year.

Amazing lake front property!

This house was perfect for a weekend get together with friends. The house was amazing, as was the location! We wish we could have stayed longer!

Pictures are worth a thousand words, but actually seeing this house was worth a million words!

Seriously can not express how perfect this house is, how great and responsive the owners are, and just how wonderful our weekend getaway was. We had such a nice relaxing weekend away from home without any hassle or trouble from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The pictures of this house seriously do not do justice of how beautiful this home really is. I truly believe this is, and will be, the best rental house I’ve ever stayed at. Marisa and Scott thought of everything when they renovated this house. From lighting inside and outside, to speakers inside and outside, to bathroom floor plans, to bottle opener placement…. seriously just amazing. We hope to be back very soon whether that is all of us together again, or breaking off into multiple groups to spread the word about this awesome home away from home. Thanks again, Marisa & Scott!

Fantastic house! Loved by All!

We had a group of 12 stay in this home with ages ranging from 15-79. There was room for all of us and everyone had a fabulous time! The owner’s take great pride in their newly remodeled home and the house had virtually every necessity one could need. Pictures accurately reflect the house, but it’s even better than you think it will be. The “hidden room” is huge and completely separate from the rest of the house. Two 15 year old boys had their own “place” while we were there. The dock is huge with plenty of room for sunning and the boys had a great time jumping off the dock with their Go Pro recording their flips and cannonballs. We rented a boat from a marina on the north end and took that out every day. The shaded deck was a perfect place to eat and hang out and we used the fire pit every night. Marisa was very responsive to every question we had from the time we booked until we returned. We even got our Security Deposit back less than a week after we vacated! Highly recommend.

We hit a few of the local wineries and ate at the Waterfront one night and at the Lakeside one night. Besides those outings, we stayed on the lake the entire time. Great experience and would highly recommend the house for others to enjoy family gatherings. Our family sold a lake house, that had been in our family for over 100 years, earlier this spring. This trip really brought home a quote from one of my from my favorite artists: “Turns out not where, but who you’re with that really matters!” All around great time. Thank you, Marisa and Scott.

Beautiful Keuka Lake!

Located in the Heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country - the top destination in the finger-lakes due to the water clarity and incredible views.

Our home is perfectly located ½-way between Hammondsport (awarded “America’s Coolest small town”) and Branchport NY. This lake has amazing vistas and tons of restaurants right on the lake and in Penn Yan and Hammondsport– accessible by car or boat!

There are many wineries and micro breweries surrounding Keuka Lake and the nearby Finger Lakes.

Hammondsport is 15 minutes away and has great little restaurants, museum, and shops.

About Marisa and Scott Jones

About Marisa and Scott

Married with 3 young adult children who love the lake and the area.

Marisa and Scott Jones purchased this house in 2014.

Why Marisa and Scott Jones chose Pulteney

This property was exactly the one that we had been looking for! Marisa grew up in the Rochester area and spent many summer weekends visiting her best friends family cottage in the same area of Keuka Lake. The cove is protected and quiet and within walking distance of the cottage that she visited so many times as a child. Her friends family still own it and we see them each year on the lake. Also, the flat lot allows all of our family to visit and enjoy the waterfront.

What makes this house unique

When we bought this property it was a single story ranch. We knew that we loved the location and wanted to expand the house to meet our families needs and wants.  Our college aged kids love everything Harry Potter and wanted to create a fun space in the house.   That was the inspiration for our secret room upstairs.  We love the space and hope that you will too.

Rules & Policies


Payment for the rental is generally divided into 3 payments on a payment schedule which is included in our rental agreement.  The rental agreement will be emailed to you upon confirmation of the rental period and availability.

If the “Rental Manager” does not receive each of your payments by the due date, the “Rental Manager” will assume that the “Renter” has made other arrangements and will cancel the reservation.

Due to either non-payment or if the “Renter” cancels, the “Rental Manager” will use its best effort to re-rent the “Premises” for the canceled period of time. If the “Rental Manager” can not obtain a new “Renter” for the previously agreed upon rent, the “Rental Manager” will make its best effort to re-rent as close as possible to the original agreed upon rent. The “Rental Manager” will consult with the “Renter” if possible during the re-rental process so the original “Renter” is aware of the attempt(s) to recover as much of the original “Renter’s” rental obligation as possible. A $75.00 Administrative Fee to the “Rental Manager” plus any fees charged by any outside service used to re-rent the Premises will be deducted from any recovered funds before funds are refunded to the original “Renter”.
