Property description

Enjoy the serenity and privacy of this peaceful cottage just off Route 89 between Seneca Falls and Ithaca, NY, on the Cayuga Wine trail. Off of a private road, this property has a long, level back yard and lots of trees. The cottage has all of the ammenities you will need. Sleep to the sounds of the waves just 20 feet from the shoreline. Step out the door onto the shaded deck, then down 3 steps to the beach. Once you are here it is easy to slip into 'lake mode' and to completely forget about everything you left behind.

The bedroom holds one double bed and the bathroom with shower stall is immediately off the bedroom. The open front room provides 2 additional single beds.

Once here you won't want to go anywhere else, but in case you do there is something to do in every direction. Grocery shopping is 15 minutes away. A Super Walmart is located within 20 minutes from the cottage. Canoga State Park is north of the cottage on Rt. 89. Don't miss Aurora, NY with Mackenzie Childs and beautiful Wells College and more on the East side of Cayuga Lake. If you golf the Seneca Fallls Country Club is minutes away and if minature golf and ice cream is more your speed then that is minutes away as well. Farmer's markets and produce stands surround the lake as well as the multi stop Cayuga and Seneca wine trails. Great restaurants are popping up on the lake every year. Our boat lift let's you keep your boat at the end of the dock - public boat launches are located to the north (Cayuga State Park) and south (Dean's Cove). Several marinas are located around the lake.
