Sheldrake house description

Windgarth House is located on the west shore of Cayuga Lake, in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country, across the road from the Sheldrake Point Winery and Cafe. Only 12 miles from Taughannock Falls State Park and 20 miles from Ithaca, it is nestled in a prime location. We rent the top floor or the entirety of this beautiful lakehouse by the week during the summer (late June until Labor Day) or for shorter stays the rest of the year (2 night minimum).

Windgarth House is right on the lake, with only a gently sloping lawn and beautiful gardens with mature shade trees separating the house from the lakefront. There are no stairs and no road between the house and lake, as is common elsewhere on Cayuga Lake. The house is located on a cove near Sheldrake Point. The water is shallow at the shore and gradually becomes deeper along the dock, to about four feet at the end of the dock. It is ideal for wading and swimming for children of all ages and adults. We provide a canoe and kayak, life jackets and other water toys for our guests' use.

The area around Windgarth House is ideal for long walks along the lake and biking. There are many hiking opportunities in the area, including at Taughannock Falls State Park.

If you have a smaller party, contact us for details - you can rent only the upstairs floor for a discounted rate.
