The Bridge Is Open ! The Bridge Is Open ! The Bridge Over Keuka Outlet…

 It has been well over a week and how wonderful and easy it now is to get to the other side of Keuka Lake.  The long-awaited bridge opening actually occurred on schedule.  And how rare is that for a road program ?

Strangely, I still find myself following the detour rate occasionally such as getting in the lane that goes straight across Rt 14 A instead of making the left turn to cross over the bridge.  It is funny how we can really develop new habits in a short period of time.

The timing could not have been any better.  Yates County is now seeing its normal surge in traffic with thenow open and the various lakefront owners coming into town to open up their lake homes. The Windmill brings in between 8- 10 thousand additional people into Yates County every weekend.

The Wine Trails are also now busier than ever with the wonderful Spring weather the Finger Lakes has been experiencing.

So if you are driving through Penn Yan this summer and the traffic seems a little slow, just be happy the bridge has been replaced.  It could be a lot worse…just ask the locals.

Enjoy this great area and if you decide to stay, give me a call.  I will help you find a great property in Yates County or on Keuka Lake.

Severe Storm Rips Through Seneca Falls

After a memorable, enjoyable and absolutely pleasant weekend, parts of New York were hit with damaging storms and possibly tornadoes.  Fr some of the pictures captured by one of the local broadcasters for Finger Lakes News .com click on the link  ( storm pictures ).  Severe storm warning were scrolling across TV screens and the weatherman predicted the potential for damaging winds and hail.Penn Yan was only witness to thunder and heavy downpours, but many areas were not as fortunate.  Roads into and around Seneca Falls were closed after trees took down power lines and blocked roads.  Parents tried for what seemed like forever to find the status of their children.  The Red Cross set up an emergency shelter, but fortunately after two hours it was determined the need was not there.  That was great news.  Most damage even though it looked bad did not displace anyone.

The rain was much-needed but not to the extent of todays delivery.  Let’s hope we can go back to some more wonderful weather like we experienced over the weekend and say thanks that there were no injuries reported from the storm.

Loomis Barn – A Great Furniture And Gift Store In The Middle Of Nowhere

Having lived in the area for over 23 years I am very familiar with the Loomis Barn, a great furniture store that has expanded into gift, a wonderful and delightful cafe that prepares everything homemade,  and even a maple sugar shack.  I dropped in the other day on my way back from an appointment just to get some ideas for my home when I heard a conversation between a gentleman and the store owner.  He was sharing how he did not realize they were there.  ” I was just driving down the road and wow here is a business in the middle of nowhere.”

That statement is quite common, because the business really is in the middle of nowhere.  You drive down a road dotted with farms and if you do not notice the sign out front, you could drive right by.  Many in the area do not know what the Loomis Barn is or what they sell.

    Time to do some browsing – it is great to have shops like this.  Go with a friend      and  stop in at the cafe for a fresh bite to eat.

Finger Lakes Dental to the Rescue !

When purchasing lakefront properties, many buyers want to know about grocery stores, banks and doctors,  Well right up there on  the priority list, should be a dentist.  As you get older you still have issues with your teeth.  However most of us would not willingly walk around with a broken tooth in the front of our mouth like a little kid, and then have to wait for an appointment to open up.

I have been fortunate to find a great dental office and wonderful dentist.  I have had the misfortune of breaking a front tooth and Dr Jason was there to the rescue. His entire office team is friendly, efficient, and inviting.  They are very adept at  minimizing the pain and stress of going to a dentist. 

You can find Dr Jason Tanoory and his staff at :
