Ithaca house description

Note: We are booked for Cornell and Ithaca College graduation 2014 and 2015.

Come enjoy quality time with family and friends at this unique property that offers multiple levels of living space, spacious bedrooms, beautifully landscaped gardens, and much more.

Enter this 4 bedroom, 4 bath home through the front door to the open foyer on the 3rd of 5 levels. A bedroom featuring a queen bed, a queen sleeper sofa, TV, and a full bath with shower is located on this level. A staircase leads up to the 4th level bedroom with king bed, a day bed with trundle, a double futon, TV,and a full bath with shower. A winding staircase, located in this bedroom, leads you to a sitting tower. From the entry level, head down the staircase which leads to a fully stocked kitchen. The kitchen is open to the family room featuring a wall of windows overlooking beautiful Cayuga Lake. The dining room and sun porch are located just off the family room making this a perfect place for casual dining. The master bedroom, just off the kitchen, offers a king sized bed and a loveseat that pulls out into a full bed. This bedroom features a full bath with a tub/shower and French doors that open to a semi-private deck. Located on the first level is a bedroom with a double bed, TV, and sliding doors that open to a large deck that overlooks the lake. The fourth full bath is located just across the hall from this bedroom.

Expansive decking, lush gardens, and a nice, gradual lakefront makes this property a scenic and serene retreat. A large, new hot tub was installed on the north deck last summer.

Our home is located approximately 18 miles from one of the Finger Lakes most beautiful and diverse cities, Ithaca, NY. Visit the Ithaca, Buttermilk, Treman, or Taughannock Falls; tour the Cornell Plantations or enjoy some wine or micro-brewery tastings. In downtown Ithaca you will find an outdoor pedestrian mall with plenty of restaurants, cafes and specialty shops.

Our home is popular for families of Cornell, Ithaca College, and Wells College students to stay while in town for sports events, concerts and visits during the academic year. In the summer, guests love strolling through our gardens, swimming and kayaking from our beach , enjoying our beautiful views, and taking advantage of our proximity to wineries on the Cayuga Wine Trail. While in the area, don't miss Buttermilk Falls, Robert H. Treman, or Taughannock State Parks.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1978

                  About the owner: My husband and I have lived about 10 miles from our cottage since 2001. My husband grew up in Dryden, NY (yes, a townie!) and I fell in love with the water while growing up on Long Island. We are both graduates of Cornell University and we worth together in a family business in Ithaca. Neither of us have found a place that we would like to live more than our beautiful Finger Lakes region.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ithaca:
                  Our lake home has been in our family for almost 4 decades. Throughout that time family members have created and help maintain a vacation destination where people can enjoy each others' company while surrounded by beauty. Once a mostly seasonal cottage, our parents had an expansive addition built in 2000. They lived full time at this wonderful home until they decided to downsize in 2008. At that time my husband and I volunteered to maintain the home. We have lived just 10 miles from our cottage since 2001 and own a long standing business in Ithaca. We are thrilled that the option of offering vacation rentals helps us to keep this very special place in our family. After four years of vacation rental and enjoying countless glowing guest comments, I know many people feel the same way about our home.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This home holds wonderful memories for my family - holidays and summer get-togethers with all the cousins playing in the lake, fishing off the dock, adults relaxing, grilling a great meal to share, enjoying the heavenly sunsets, and making s'mores over a bonfire.
