Ithaca house description

Beautiful three bedroom single family home located in the Town of Ithaca. We are only 1.5 miles from downtown Ithaca, but it is a world apart. Private lot with private dock and private swimming and grass area down by the lake. New for 2011 -- flat screen HD TV. New for 2012 -- living room couch, new carpets in upstairs bedrooms, new grout in bathroom. New for 2013, bathroom sink upgrade, family canoe, Kayak rack.

This may be the nicest kitchen in any rental you will find. Kitchen has sliding glass doors to large lakeside deck. Cherry floors, granite countertops, pendant lights, dishwasher, garbage disposal, oversized fridge, eat-in table with seating for seven. Gorgeous views from almost every room, including 8 windows in the living room, 3 in the master bedroom, 3 windows and a three paneled sliding glass door in the kitchen and a 6 bay window and large picture windows in the downstairs bedroom. The house has been completely modernized and renovated. It is not a musty lake rental! Hardwood floors and beautiful finishing touches everywhere. You will not walk in the front door and be disappointed. All kitchen items (pots, pans, dishes) and sheets included. Renters bring their own towels.

Bedrooms: Master w/ fantastic views of Cornell and King Bed. Bay Window Room with Fantastic views of the lake and Queen Bed. Purple room with Skylights and 3 Twin Beds (2 can be pushed together).

VRBO Testimonials from before they had customer reviews (we have been doing this a long time!):

From March '09: Ms. Greenwald: I just wanted you to know we had a great time in Ithaca during our stay two weeks ago. It was a really nice get away. There is really a lot to do in the area. Your house is beautiful and I see now why you had such a hard time leaving! Thank you! N.R.

From April '09: Carolyn, Just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time staying at your home in Ithaca. It is an absolutely beautiful home in a perfect location. We all had a lovely time! K.M.

From Summer '08: Hi Carolyn, Just wanted to say thank you! We had a great Ithaca visit. Your house is very comfortable, well stocked and in a great location. Also, thank you so much for replacing the table [broken by previous week tenant]......breakfasts on the deck watching the ducks was so peaceful!!!

Here is a thank-you card I received in the mail: 'Dear Carolyn. I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our vacation week at your lakehouse in Ithaca. It is such a beautiful house and has all the comforts of home -- PLUS that gorgeous lake. We liked the convenient location, too It is so close to downtown Ithaca and is also close to our daughter's home on ______ Road. Thank you for sharing it with us. Thank you, too for the prompt return of our security deposit. Sincerely, M.K.'

Pet Policy: Not many upscale places allow pets. We do because we love our dogs and they love to travel with us. This is a great place for dog, not only because they can go swimming, but because the deck and grass are all fenced in. You can let the dog out from the kitchen without even leaving the house. You must clean up after your pet, of course. We charge a $20 fee for dogs that we spend on end of the year professional carpet cleaners.

Cleaning:
House is professionally cleaned between tenants. Tenants are asked to bring up and tag garbage on Tuesday evenings. (Tags provided). Tenants are asked to leave the house 'broom clean.'

Who Can Rent:
House is available to one or two families but no more than 2 sets of unrelated persons (one family, two families, 2 friends, one couple, etc). It is a quite area and is not appropriate for loud/late night parties.

Please note, CU graduation 2014 is booked. IC is still available.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: This is Adam canoeing the boys just off the dock. Canoe and 2 kayaks are on site for your use. Just slide them into the water.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ithaca:
                      Ithaca is a fantastic vacation spot. It is located on beautiful Cayuga Lake, the longest and deepest of the finger lakes. You can boat, dock, fish or swim right off our dock. Ithaca has three amazing state parks with fantastic hikes, amazing views and great swimming, with Taughannock Park just up the road. Ithaca is directly on the finger lakes wine trail and many wonderful wineries are nearby. There are many top quality restaurants and plenty of places to grab a quick bite. If you stay at our house, you will have easy access to Taughannock Park, Cass Park, the Hanger Theater, downtown and to Wegmans (a top supermarket), so you won't have to spend a lot of time in the car. There is also a wonderful farmer's market in Ithaca with music, good produce and a great community vibe. In other words, you can relax and do nothing but stare at nature or partake easily in many outdoor activities, it will be up to you.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The house has several wonderful features. First and foremost is the location. You are directly on the lake. You can swim. You can boat. You can jump in the lake off the dock. You can sit on the deck and relax. At the same time, we are just 1.5 miles from shops and downtown Ithaca. You have all the benefits of the lake and wine country without having to drive 25 minutes to the supermarket. My next favorite feature of the house is the sliding doors in the kitchen. You can eat outside on the deck just as easily as you can eat inside at the kitchen table. As soon as we put in those doors, we had breakfast outside every day for months. It is wonderful. The next best feature of the house is the lakeside deck. It is a great place to sit and relax or BBQ or have a cool drink.
