So there was also a rumor tweeted that Anne was in the Finger Lakes looking for a place to get married.  I would not think it was her, since we all read about the end of her relationship with( for more photos ).  Then again Anne was seen leaving The Dark Knight Rises premiere after party with Adam Shulman in London, so maybe she is moving on and more seriously this time.  We will just have to wait and see.  In the mean time Anne, we welcome you to Keuka Lake.

Anne Hathaway Takes Time For Keuka Lake !

August 12th, 2012 categories: Information, Keuka Lake

Anne Hathaway the adorable actress know for so many roles in various movies such as “The Princess Diaries”, “Broke Back Mountain” and “The Devil Wears Prada” has been spending the past week trekking around Keuka Lake with her parents that have a home here in Yates County.

Perez Hilton actually disclosed this little get-a-way for Anne on his gossip column.  Anne was spotted in both the Villages of Penn Yan and Hammondsport stopping in various shops.  She was also spotted at a few of the wineries that dot the area around Keuka Lake and at a few of the restaurants such as the Esperanza.   The businesses in the Keuka Lake area were surprised to see their names listed in a gossip column, but most found it quite fun.

This area is not immune to star-studded actors and actresses finding a delightful refuge in the area. In fact there are several celebrities that have second homes on the Finger Lakes, allowing them to escape to a more private and civilized setting.  Since Keuka Lake is less than a 6 hour drive from NYC and an hour flight into the airport from NYC, it makes it a sensible place to get away to for many of the privileged. Stars find that they are able to come and go as they please with minimal fanfare.

Anne comes to the area to visit with her parents, and why not.  Keuka Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in the Finger Lakes and a favorite of so many with the charming little hamlets and villages that are found around the lake.  Anne we love when you visit the area, so please visit often!

Of course since hearing of Anne Hathaway being in the area, many have their eyes open for the possibility of a sighting. 

If you are interested in finding a delightful lakefront home on Keuka Lake and experience the relaxation and joy that so many have already found, then call, text or email me.

The Once Again Shop In Penn Yan –

August 12th, 2012 categories: Information, Keuka Lake, Real Estate News


I am fortunate to live in a relatively small town just outside of the Village Of Penn Yan in Yates County ( On the North end of Keuka Lake ).  It may be small but the people are large at heart.  This community comes together to assist many underprivileged families through clothing, housing and food.  One of the assets the community offers is “The Once Again Shop” a well-known thrift shop in Penn Yan.  Stroll through the  doors and you walk into a treasure chest.  Everything inside of this building has been donated through the generosity of many.  Browsers can find clothing, furniture, knick-knacks and everything in between all priced quite reasonably.  In fact buyers can fill up a plastic garbage bag with unpriced clothes, all for $5.00.  If the buyer needs linens, then a bag will cost $6.oo.  It has become the shopping place for many in need and the treasure trove for those looking for something they can leave with as a “great find”.

To keep the place running, many ,many volunteers are required.  There are sorters, cashiers, and even those that try to fix some of the items that are dropped off.  There are even administrative volunteers that make sure there are enough volunteers for each day.

The money that is raised is split up between the various churches in the community, so that they can best serve their respective members.

The shop is open from Wednesday through Sat from 10 Am until 4 PM. Saturdays during the summer the shop closes at 1PM.  Items can be dropped off on Mon and Tues preferably and for those donating large items, a phone call is preferred first.   They are always looking for volunteers.

100 East Elm Street  Penn Yan, NY 14527
(315) 536-3620

 If you are in the area vacationing and looking for something to do, stop in.  You might be surprised at what you can find. It is also a great place to leave those items you no longer need.  Re-use and re-purpose will allow someone else to gain some enjoyment from those pieces.

Will The “Travolta” House Ever Sell ? On Keuka Lake ?

July 31st, 2012 categories: Keuka Lake, Luxury Waterfront

The lakefront home on Keuka Lake that became known as the house John Travolta purchased ( but did not) is still on the market since June of 2009.  Of course it is not unusual for a home of this caliber to be on the market so long.  The original asking price was $2,500,000.  This home was built and designed for entertaining as you will see in the following photos.

Guests can enjoy the outdoor lap pool and bar on the patio or they can head to the dock where they will find multiple outdoor serving areas. The dock has plenty of space for your guests to arrive by boat.

This is one of the largest lakeside decks that I have seen on Keuka Lake.  There are bars located everywhere in the home as well  as outside in key locations. Even the dock is illuminated very colorfully so that it can easily be seen at night.


Now lets stop inside – the living is room sports a sleek black marble wall.

Or how about waking up to refreshing views of Keuka Lake ?

For more information on this interesting 3 bedroom 5 bedroom lakefront home with 190 feet of lakefront on the highly desirable Keuka Lake complete with heated driveway for slippery weather and exercise room, contact me via phone, text or email.  This home is looking for the right buyer, someone who enjoys entertaining and has extravagant taste.  The home is currently offered at $1,900,000.

Information supplied for this listing by the GRAR via Sbarra& Wells Century 21 ,  This home has been listed for sale since 2009.
