Ithaca cottage description

Retreat to this lovely cottage and grounds we call 'The Cottage at Taughannock,' ideal for a relaxed family vacation or small group retreat. Only eight miles from Ithaca and sharing a 2000 ft border with Taughannock State Park, The Cottage at Taughannock offers both indoor and outdoor spaces for you to enjoy.

Prepare meals in the comfortable kitchen and dine in the “garden room”--or grill and dine on the adjacent patio. Bicycle 4/10 of a mile to the beach at Taughannock State Park for a refreshing dip in Cayuga Lake, or to enjoy the many excellent hiking trails. In the evening, sing around the fire pit or gather in the cozy living room to play board games or watch a movie next to the fireplace.

The cottage sleeps 7 people. The master bedroom, the yellow room and the upstairs larger room each contain queen beds. Upstairs, also, is a smaller room with a twin-sized bed. For a small additional fee, we can accommodate up to the maximum of three more people (10 total), using a queen and a twin-sized air beds. Linens and towels are provided.

The cottage is pleasantly furnished with period pieces and textiles. The kitchen is equipped with pots, pans & utensils for meal prep, as well as a dishwasher and a commercial-sized stove.

                  The Cottage at Taughannock is 20 acres of woodland and streams--wonderful for exploring and discovering deer trails and hidden waterfalls.

                  It shares a 2000-foot border with Taughannock State Park. The park offers miles of top-rated hiking trails, breath-taking waterfalls, a public beach with lifeguards, a public boat launch, weekend concerts, and plenty of shoreline for fishing or catching the summer breezes off Cayuga Lake.

                  Ithaca is 8 miles from the cottage-- providing a wide array of activities for visitors.

                  There are many opportunities for continuing education (through Cornell University and Ithaca College) and live music performances throughout the year.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ithaca:
                  We knew the moment we walked on the property that our four-year search was over....we found the perfect place. It has been such fun making it our own.
