The perfect getaway!
The perfect getaway!
We spent our 25th Wedding Anniversary trip here. The property speaks for itself- it's beautiful inside and out. A clean, comfortable, cozy, well equipt cottage with adorable details inside and beautiful views outside. It's near so many great places- parks, wineries, farmers markets, and cute restaurants, and the rental process was friendly, efficient, and painless! I would highly recommend staying here. I would love to go again!!

About the owner: We have been renting on the East Shore of Cayuga Lake for the last few years and really fell in love with the area. It was so fortuitous that we found this gem of a cottage! We loved renovating it, imagining what others would need to feel completely at home and relaxed while vacationing at Alilys-on-Cayuga.
Why the Owner Chose Ithaca:
One gets the best of both worlds at Alilys-on-Cayuga! On one hand there is a great deal of privacy and quiet. The cottage has over 100 feet of lake front, a private dock, and a gazebo right on the beach for lunch or enjoying wine and cheese in the late afternoon. It is so peaceful on this bend in the lake! On the other hand, the cottage is 30 minutes to Ithaca, Cornell and Ithaca College with all of the hustle and bustle that comes with going into town. There are wonderful restaurants of every type in Ithaca, a fantastic Farmer's Market on Saturday and Sundays and lots of shopping. State parks are a short drive away for hiking & biking and there are numerous wineries throughout the Finger Lakes region. Alilys-on-Cayuaga provides a great, central location to vacation where one can do nothing but sit and take in life or take advantage of all the area has to offer!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The peacefulness of the mornings, listening to the world on the lake wake up! The sunsets are amazing whether you are at the picnic table, on the beach, hanging on the deck or eating at the dining room table. Riding bikes up, up, up Nut Ridge Road and then exploring the area on two wheels. Curling up on the daybed with a good book for hours and hours. The beach, the beach, the beach! Cooking up meals at a leisurely pace. Swimming, floating, paddling. Sleeping on the dock in the afternoon sun. The view, did we say the view!
