About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath with lake access and and amazing lake view!

Welcome to 162 Cliffside, a one bedroom, one bath condo, overlooking Canandaigua Lake. This 4th floor condo, in building 5, is part of Bristol Harbour Resort. The many amenities of Bristol Harbour include a restaurant and hotel, tennis and pickle ball courts, and a Robert Trent Jones Golf Course.

The first thing one notices upon entering this condo is the incredible view. The bedroom,

with one large closet, is off to the left. Next to the bedroom is an alcove, containing a washer/dryer combo; a vanity, separate from the bathtub area; and a small desk. A hallway, with another large closet, leads to the kitchen, dining/living area and balcony. Believe me, fixing meals is a pleasure in this open space high above the water.

The condo sleeps three to four people. There is a queen size bed in the master and a double bed futon in the living room. A 25 inch HD TV/DVD player and a speaker for an IPhone or an IPod is provided for your listening and viewing enjoyment. The kitchen is well equipped with seating for 7 people inside and 4 outside. An electric George Foreman grill is on the balcony. The linens are new as are the beach towels. There is ample reading material and a jigsaw puzzle in case it rains.

The water is crystal clear and the walk to the beach is short. Canandaigua is beautiful in the winter as well and Bristol Mountain Ski area is 15 minutes away.

Wishing you an enjoyable and welcoming vacation experience no matter what season you choose in Canandaigua - “The Chosen Spot”.

About Patricia King

My family purchased a home on this lake in 1946. i have fond memories of spending summers here with family and friends. My husband and I purchased the family home in 1995. We sold it in 2006 when it became too difficult to maintain. I spent one year renting and then decided I needed a new space just for me!

Patricia King purchased this condo in 2008

Why Patricia King chose Canandaigua

I live in Florida now, but wanted to be able to return here in the summers. I wanted a lake view, water access, a tennis court, and activities. This property was perfect.

I live in Florida now because I teach an exercise class. When I decide to 'retire' I will spend more time here.

What makes this condo unique

One sees the incredible view as soon as one enters this unit. I love the fact that the kitchen and living room overlook the lake. This unit is small, but the alcove area makes it more private than most. It has two large closets. The location is great because it is high, so there are no trees blocking the incredible view.

Lovely Lake Canandaigua Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this one bedroom condo and enjoyed ourselves just as much as the first time. The bed is comfy, living room sunny and comfortable, kitchen well equipped and even had a brother and his wife visit and spend one night with us on the futon which worked out fine. The view from the balcony is amazing. So serene. We will probably rent again next time we are visiting family in the Canandaigua region.

Fabulous view, comfortable relaxing apartment, close to town and country

  • 4 of 5

I was pleased with the space and delighted with the view! Everything we needed was here, with the addition of Netflix access and a nice bottle of wine. It was easy to park, easy to access Canandaigua as well as countryside. We swam at the little protected beach. The view from the balcony was beyond great as the weather changed and the stars came out.

A Little Slice of Heaver

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just wonderful. It was clean and cozy and just perfect for my husband and I. It was well furnished and the bed was very comfortable. Patricia was just wonderful showing us what we needed to know to make our stay perfect. We only wish we could have spent the entire summer there. The View from the balcony was amazing. We spent many hours just gazing at the lake. The beach was so clean and the water refreshing. We would definitely recommend this condo for a relaxing vacation. We have spent many vacations in Canandaigua and this was definitely the best place we ever stayed. It is just far enough from all the hustle and bustle but close enough to town the enjoy the restaurants. We recommend Eric's Office for a great meal. (Reservations are suggested). Simply Crepes is another favorite.

Convenient and lovely for family visit

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Pat's condo for 1st 2 weeks in September while visiting with family in the Rochester area. It was very convenient to my brother's place on Seneca Point, so we could see a lot of each other without being too underfoot. The place was perfect for this. Everything we needed was there. We even cooked for small family gatherings a few times and the kitchen setup worked easily for this. Bed was super comfortable, ceiling fans made even the warmer days pleasant without turning on the air and sealing off from the outside. We did the easy walk and elevator ride down to the beach every day that we weren't over at my brother's. Water was great. Never too crowded. The best feature is the lovely balcony overlooking the lake. Felt like being a bird high in the treetops with beautiful lake views. Ate our meals out there most days. We visited the Fingerlakes Boating Museum in Hammondsport, rented kayaks, standup paddle boards, visited a couple of wineries, hiked some local trails, had fantastic meals at the Brown Hound Bistro, drove into Rochester a couple of time for museums and dinner with friends. Thanks Pat for the perfect place for our visit.
