Ithaca cottage description

Now renting: 2012 Spring/Summer/Fall vacation weeks & 2012 Cornell University graduation

Ideal for urban professionals, university parents, honeymooning couples, aspiring writers and all others looking to really get away and relax in a beautiful setting.

This very private cottage is conveniently located 10 miles north of Ithaca, two miles from Trumansburg, and two miles past Taughannock State Park, in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country. Parking is on same level as the cottage, perched between Cayuga Lake and green woodland. Staircase leads down to Cayuga Lake, where there is ample space for relaxing and enjoying lakeside activities.

First floor of this very appealing 1,250 square foot cottage includes a full kitchen with dining area, living room with a decorative stone fireplace and mahogany floor, as well as a large sitting room, which easily converts to a downstairs bedroom. The second floor features two generous bedrooms and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub. The downstairs sitting room has beautiful, sweeping lake views and opens via a sliding glass door to a 25-foot-long wood deck overlooking the lake. With Adirondack chairs along with a patio table and chairs, the deck is a perfect spot to kick back, relax and enjoy the outstanding view.

'Twin Pines' sleeps up to 6 persons - two in each second floor bedroom, and two in the first floor sitting room. All floors are natural wood. The cottage, outfitted with electric heat, is insulated and features an air conditioner in the living room along with ceiling fans in each bedroom. Behind the cottage, the parking area can accommodate four plus cars with a large lawn and extensive woods beyond. Outside the kitchen stands a charcoal grill. Down the staircase, 90 feet of lakefront offers a dock and lakeside cabana with a table and chairs, mini-refrigerator and fishing gear. Lakeside there are lawn chairs for relaxing, a picnic table and a fire ring for memorable beach campfires.

Comfortable contemporary furnishings and antique accents combine to create a pleasing, classic interior ambiance. Twin Pines is furnished with two sofas, a recliner, a convertible sofa/bed and Oriental rugs. The eat-in kitchen with oak cabinets is fully equipped. One second floor bedroom has 18 feet of sliding glass windows overlooking Cayuga Lake.

With spectacular sunrises at dawn and a starlit sky at night, 'Twin Pines' offers beautiful views of Cayuga Lake to the east and relaxing views of woods to the west.

Other amenities: Clean linens (towels, washcloths, sheets, pillow cases, blankets, quilts) provided. Twelve gallons of bottled drinking water provided per week. A canoe and a 14-foot rowboat along with life jackets are available on-site.

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      Why the Owner Chose Ithaca:
                      Twin Pines is very cozy and very private.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Twin Pines offers a number of unique, wonderful features. Topping the list is that the cottage is directly on Cayuga Lake, which means you can jump into the water off the dock and swim--or if you prefer, sit on the Twin Pines' deck and relax while enjoying the view. While very cozy and very private, the cottage is just 2 miles away from a good supermarket and a great coffee shop and restaurants in Trumansburg, Twin Pine's guests are only 20 minutes away from Wegmans in Ithaca, the region's premiere supermarket. Nearby must-sees in the area include the Ithaca Farmer's Market, the various speciality shops in downtown Ithaca Commons, Cornell University, the Museum of the Earth and the many gorges/waterfalls/trails that abound in the Ithaca area.
