Cayuga house description

Hello and Welcome to Wise Owl Landing-your own private lakefront getaway located directly on the Cayuga Wine Trail in the beautiful Finger Lakes region.

Situated on the shore of Cayuga Lake, this comfortable updated, fully-furnished and equipped 4 bedroom 2 bath home can be your oasis. Sit back and enjoy your morning coffee, tea, or evening Wine or Beer in the 6 person year round Hot Tub on the 800 square foot lakefront patio, or in the nicely size family room with a wall of windows overlooking the lake. This is one of the few properties in the region that is pet friendly. Watch the sunrise over the surrounding hills and the sunsets over the lake. Later, grab a book and take advantage of the private patio and dock as you soak up some sun. If you're feeling adventurous, enjoy swimming, kayaking, canoeing, or fishing with ease directly from the dock and patio-everything you need is provided for you.
Once you've been able to unwind, there are many local activities available to reinvigorate your body and mind. Wine/spirit/beer tours are favorite activities and we can help recommend local vineyards/distilleries and limo services. Bring your boat or rent one for your visit. Also close to 18-hole golf courses, hiking trails and local waterfalls. We are directly on the Cayuga Wine Trail for you to easily fill your days w/ numerous wineries, historic sites, theatre, antique stores, fabulous shopping (including the MacKenzie Childs Flagship Store) and outstanding restaurants.
Our location is ideal for visitors to Wells College, the NY Chiropractic College and William Hobart and Smith College. Many guests also visit family at Syracuse, Cornell, and Ithaca College. The home is located a short drive from many popular wedding venues including the Inns of Aurora, Izzo’s White Barn and the Apple Station Winery.

Please take your time and explore the description of the home and information on the next few pages and don’t hesitate to contact us with any additional question. After all, it’s your Vacation Getaway. Make it perfect!

Being the largest premier lake for Boating and Fishing, Cayuga Lake is large-38 miles long but still extremely manageable. Our hot tub sits right on the patio so you can enjoy the lake from the warmth of the tub.
