              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Our family has been vacationing here for almost one hundred years. We own the cottage next door for our own use. When this property became available, we jumped at the chance to own it. Our family is scattered across the country now, but our hearts bring us back here.

              Why the Owner Chose Aurora:
              This property is one of the nicest on Cayuga Lake because of the gradually increasing water depth. The front lawn is large and invites children to play and adults to relax while contemplating life on the water. One of our favorite quotes is 'If you are lucky enough to be at the lake, you are lucky enough.'

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Our property sits on the edge of the picturesque Village of Aurora and about thirty minutes from Ithaca-home of Cornell University and Ithaca College. We enjoy shopping at the Ithaca Farmers' Market and sampling the international cuisine there.
