There are pages on Facebook for everything and most likely every lake. And there are several pages for Keuka Lake. The one that seems to be the most popular is ” I ♥ Keuka Lake” Many of the posts talk about longing to get back to the lake. People follow the current weather conditions, look at pictures as the seasons change and talk about the cottages they have been brought up in and could never leave. There seems to be something very magical about Keuka Lake.
Is it the friendly faces? Or is it the quaint little villages and hamlets that surround the lake? Maybe it is the natural charm of it’s setting, surrounded by a landscape dotted with trees, vineyards and rolling hills of hay. It could be the casual settings of the various lakeside restaurants where you can visit via boat or car. Is there something in the air or maybe it all starts in the water. There is something that captivates folks and maybe it is just a combination of everything that is and surrounds the lake.
Many love to come here because once here, they are compelled to slow down and relax. Yes, you can still get internet service and cable around the lake, but most seem to forget all about it and just concentrate on being happy and enjoying the lake. It is easy to do with so many restaurants serving locally produced goods, wineries uncorking enough blends to satisfy every palate and even craft breweries with enough choices that will have you bringing home a growler of your favorite.
The “lakers”, those that have a place on the lake or live on the lake refer to it as the “Keuka Lifestyle”. When the lakers come back, you can find them in the local deli on the east side, The Olney Place ordering a fresh sandwich and checking the condition of the docks after the winter ice or find them at the Trading Post enjoying an early to mid day breakfast talking with their summer friends.
I am always looking to find what that magical ingredient is, so when you come to visit or stay, I will be looking for your answer to the magical appeal. Maybe it is just sitting by a relaxing and warming fire by the lakeside after a day in the sun, and watching the fireflies dancing against the black of the night.
Of course if you come to visit and decide to stay, you know to contact the most engaging lakefront Realtor® on the lake to purchase your magical place on the lake… just call me.
