The Olney Place on Keuka Lake – Making It Easy For You

Everyone on the East side of Keuka Lake and even into farther reaches, knows about Olneys.  They have a huge selection of beer, a great deli with some unique sandwich offerings, home-made cookies and salads, beautiful photos for sale and gift items.  If you go into the deli and need something specific, Seth will make sure he carries it for you. 

I forgot to mention the owner is Seth Olney and besides being an owner of a great deli on Keuka Lake, he is also a real estate agent with the same brokerage that I am associated with, Wine Trail Properties.

I tend to stop into Olneys to talk shop with Seth when he is not busy ( and he is always busy) and I get to witness his great customer service. 

A customer came in today looking for a bowl of his home-made soup and it was sold out.  Seth was in the process of making a new batch.  The customer was told “We will text you when the soup is done.”  The gentleman smiled, purchased his favorite case of beer and said he would be back when the soup was done.  That my friends is great customer service.


 Did I mention they sell gas as well ?  Actually, it is the only place to purchase gas for your boat from there, going North into Penn Yan.  The other marina across the water stopped selling gas a couple of years ago.


Seth wants to make your purchases as easy as possible.   “Soup’s On !! ”

So let him know how he and his staff can assist you. You can find them on Facebook, call them at 315-536-5454 or visit their website The Olney Place .  They accept all major credit cards.

If you are looking to purchase a lakefront home on Keuka Lake or maybe thinking of selling your current vacation home on Keuka Lake, contact Seth or myself and we will put things in motion for you.

    This is without ANY doubt the OLNEY place on Keuka Lake with the best combination of the 4 S! Sandwiches, Smiles, Sevice and Seth!!!!
    Great job, Seth. If you don’t try one of the delicious sandwiches, you’re really missing out on something.

    I haven’t been there or heard of it. I am from Georgia and travel to Penn Yan every summer. We will be there in July and are staying on the lake. I will make it a point to check this place out this year. I love it there and the people are so nice. Hope to see you soon.

    Connie thank you so much for visiting the Chair On The Lake. You must stop at Olneys when you come to Penn Yan. Seth has a very unique offering of sandwiches, and once you find your favorite – you will be back again and again. And his home-made soup, is to die for. One gentleman that came in the store to find out the soup had all been sold. To his rescue, Seth had started a new batch. That gentleman wanted to know when the soup would be done so that he could come back for it. The soup is that good !
    So thank you again and please stop by for infomation about the lakes, restaurants and of course real estate..
