The home had everything we needed, and the hot tub was an added bonus. The dock was perfect for our pontoon boat, and provided a fun area to swim with our dog in the shallower parts of the lake. Vacasa’s local team were great to work with when we needed help as well. We would absolutely come back to Moon Swept!

This house had a lot of space and was very clean. I loved the view from the upper deck. We also enjoyed the little sitting area on the dock. Beware there are lots of steep steps to climb to get to the lake. The area also has lots of great hiking. There are also lots of wineries to visit. This trip was just my husband and I but we would definitely return and try to bring along some of our family members the next time.

Really enjoyed our 2 weeks at Moon Swept. The dock was awesome. The trip down to the dock is not for the faint of heart, as other reviewers have said, but the other side of that is that the house is up high with great views. Lots of improvements underway.

We grew up on Keuka Lake, but this was our first chance to reconnect in nearly 10 years. Our family group of 6 adults and 2 dogs had a perfect week. House was very clean and comfortable. We cooked and ate all meals in, making great use of the big main kitchen, grill and large deck. Yes, there are a lot of steps to the lake, but the facilities there (2 docks, big partially covered deck, spotless bathroom, kayaks, etc.) made it most worthwhile. We enjoyed hours there every day.

Had a great time at this house. Views are beautiful. Very comfortable for 7 adults and pet friendly! Kitchen well equipped, house was super clean, bonus that linens are provided. We all enjoyed the large dock with lots of seating and canopy to take a break from the sun. The kayaks and paddle board were great and life vests were new and clean. Close to Hammondsport was a bonus too. The only caveat to this house is the steps down to dock. The listing was not clear that there was 117 steps so we were surprised and concerned for my older parents. We made it work (fortunately there is a bathroom on the dock), just wished the listing was more detailed so we knew what to expect.

The space was clean and private with a variety of comfortable areas to lounge indoors at outdoors. The dock was great with a variety of water toys that were well used. Glad the stairs are being replaced to the lake.. they felt a bit shaky. Looking forward to another stay.

The house was very nice and clean and comfortable. The only drawback is the lake access. While the dock itself is nice and has kayaks and paddleboat and canoe....the steps down are incredibly long and steep! If you have any kind of disability, forget about going down to lake.

The house it’s self was good. The AC didn’t work very well. The bed rails on the bed upstairs were broke. The grass was very very over grown. Also, the deck was very dangerous. Nails sticking out of the deck and Power tools (literally a table saw) were all under the gazebo so we had no shade plus, we had 5 kids (ages 10 and up) so we had to have our eyes on them 24/7. There was no rails on the last set of stairs! Shockingly I’m not sure how that was OSHA approved to be rented out. Again, the house was big enough for all of us. We had every appliance we needed and it was clean, but I wouldn’t recommend nor would I return to this location.
Manager response:
