"This beautiful lake home is brand new and furnished with top end amenities including leather reclining sofa and reclining chairs. The bedroom has beautiful dark cherry furniture... And it has the most well appointed kitchen we've ever seen in a rental...A real luxury. The house is spotless, I have never stayed in such an immaculately kept home.
The location is private and peaceful with mesmerizing lake views, yet close to Ithaca and Cornell.
We highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return.

"We rented this cozy home for our daughter's graduation from Cornell. The location could NOT be better! Unfortunately (because we were so busy!) we didn't get to fully utilize all of the amenities offered (kayaks, hot tub, BBQ, etc), but having a cup of coffee on the deck overlooking the lake was the BEST! Everything regarding the rental went smoothly and the house itself was very comfortable. The refrigerator was full of the owners' food when we arrived, which was kindof odd for a rental, but we worked around it. I had to throw out at least three jars of moldy salsa to make room for our stuff - but hopefully, the owner didn't mind. That fridge thing was my only issue the entire 5 night stay - so I'd say, that was a successful rental. Again, this location is amazing! A quick jaunt up the hill to campus, 5 minutes to the farmers market or anything you could want in town, and not far from everything else this amazing town has to offer! You cannot go wrong with this cozy lakeside getaway!"

"This is the 3rd year that our family stayed at the Blue Spruce Vacation Retreat. We just love the house and grounds! It is the perfect place for a family reunion! The grandkids had plenty of great lawns to play games and run around on, they loved chasing frogs around the pond in the paddleboat and of course, the pool!! It is a very large pool, surrounded by lovely trees and the entire family spend a good deal of the week there! Some of our kids love to work out and are so pleased that there is a fitness room. They would always follow their workouts with a soak in the hot tub or a session in the sauna! The second year that we came, the owners added a covered outdoor picnic area with barbecue and picnic tables. This has become our favorite evening dinner and hangout spot, followed by smores around the fire pit, under the stars. The bedrooms are all comfortable, each having air conditioning, the kitchen is well equipped and the house has lots of warm, Victorian charm. We just love this place. We are already booked again for next year!"
