                      Car: Necessary

                      This charming cottage is located on the east side of Cayuga Lake in the finger lakes region of upstate, NY. Beyond the waterfront activities that the cabin provides, it is located close to picturesque Ithaca, NY, home to Cornell University and Ithaca College. Hike one of the many trails that climb alongside the gorges that make this area unique. Grab your camera and head to Buttermilk Falls, Robert Treman or Taughannock Falls State Parks, they're all just a short drive. Add a weekend trip to the amazing Ithaca Farmer's Market to your must-do list, afterwards take a stroll down the Ithaca Commons which features many unique shops and restaurants. Don't forget to check out Cornell University and Cornell Plantations. Sapsucker Woods and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology are guaranteed to delight birders of all ages. Art lovers unite at the Johnson Museum of Art. Last but not least, visit at least one of the fifteen wineries, one cidery, one meadery, and four distilleries along the first organized, longest running Cayuga Lake Wine Trail.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1965

                      About the owner: Currently the property is owned by Janet (Ithaca), Tom (NC) and Ian Gillespie (CO). Each of us grew up in Ithaca and have that unique tie to the area. Our father taught at Cornell for 40 years. Here we are in the cabin pre-renovation - circa 2010.

                      Why the Owner Chose Lansing:
                      Our parents purchased the modest cottage in 1965. In 2011, to honor their memory and the good times we've had here, we decided to renovate and upgrade the facility into it's present condition. We hope you will come visit and enjoy it as much as we have.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      160 feet of lake front make this property unique. Enjoy sweeping views of the lake from inside the cabin. When you're not on the lake there's never a shortage of things to do here! Take a weekend trip to the amazing Ithaca Farmers Market. Hike at Buttermilk Falls, Robert Treman and Taughannock Falls State Parks. Check out Cornell University and Cornell Plantations. Birders will want to visit Sapsucker Woods and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Art lovers unite at the Johnson Museum of Art. Visit at least one of the 15 wineries, one cidery, one meadery, and four distilleries along the first organized, longest running Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. Or just relax on 160 feet of lakefront.
