Ithaca cottage description

This vacation property has a very large patio overlooking the lake with a fireplace and a hot tub which provide a wonderful night-time place to relax. This cottage was a speakeasy in the 1920s, so it has plenty of charm, but it was fully renovated in 2009. One bedroom has a queen sized bed, the second bedroom has a full-size bed. The maximum occupancy is 4. Front-loading washing machine and dishwasher included.

The cottage is located in a spot that I think is great for access to everything the Fingerlakes have to offer. It is only a couple of minutes away from the mall and the grocery store along with plenty of restaurants on Triphammer road. It also abuts the most historic neighborhood of Cayuga Heights where stately mansions nestle along the road with cliff views of all of Ithaca. Yet the cottage is fairly secluded, and surrounded by forests on a very quiet street. If you go up East Shore drive you will get to the vineyards along the East side of the lake and the cute little town of Aurora where the McKenzie-Childs farm is located (this is a very nice drive and visit to the founding location of this high-end whimsical furniture and home décor company). If you drive in the other direction there is an area for swimming at the Cornell sailing school that is only a couple of minutes down the road toward Ithaca. You can rent kayaks at Puddledockers, which is about ten minutes from the cottage near Meadow street. The commons is the boutique shopping pedestrian mall of Ithaca with plenty of great restaurants, and it is in the center of downtown, and also only ten minutes from the cottage. A thirty minute drive will take you to the many wineries on the West side of the lake and the quaint village of Trumansburg with plenty of antique shopping along the way. Robert H. Treman State Park is a great place to hike the gorges, and it is about fifteen minutes away from the cottage off of Meadow st. Ithaca Brewery is near to Treman Park, and it offers many nationally known micro-brews along with great locally-sourced food. The iconic Ithaca Falls are less than ten minutes away from the cottage (just drive down East Shore drive and head straight past Ithaca High School and the falls are on the left). Stewart Park is about five minutes away, which is the home to many festivals in Ithaca (Including Beerfest and the Scottish festival) and Stewart Park also has outdoor BBQ with beau

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I moved to Ithaca to attend veterinary school where I met my husband at a mutual friends 4th of July party. He was a lecturer for ROTC at Cornell, and we both since have been relocated to Virginia. We really loved Ithaca, and hope to return someday. Many hours were spent in the yellow cottage with friends and family, and my best friend/sister from another mother was my roommate. The cottage was restored with love and care, and I put in many hours of work on the house myself.

Why the Owner Chose Ithaca:
I fell in love with the property and the character of the cottage immediately. Many people had passed it over because it needed TLC. I think you will also fall in love with the uniqueness and surroundings of this little cottage. I added a hot tub in 2011, and many hours were passed under the stars talking with friends and enjoying the twinkling lights on the other side of the lake through the trees.
