About the property

A quiet, quaint lakefront cottage located 2 miles in on a private dirt road, great for walking or bike rides. Cottage is on the east side of the lake, close to Aurora, and several wineries and restaurants.

The property has over 200 feet of level beachfront, small dock, and is on a more secluded part of Cayuga lake. On the east shore so there are amazing sunsets. The cottage itself has one large camp style bedroom with one double bed and two single beds. Has a living/dining room, fully equipped kitchen, and bathroom with shower. The outside features a large wraparound covered porch with lots of seating, and amazing views. There is also a sun deck, and BBQ area. Note: There is no tv, or internet. If you are looking for a quiet place to get away from it all and unwind this is it!!!

Wonderful place for a fishing trip or a get away from the cramped city. I especially loved the kayaks and easy lake access. Kudos to Brad for having three grills to choose from!

This was a great place to unwind very private as the neighbors were hidden.

  • 5 of 5

This has an awesome porch. Bathroom is on the covered porch which was convenient from inside but even better from lake. No wet feet running through cottage. Owner was awesome and made sure extras were taken care of i.e. water spices plasticwear etc. Really loved it there!

We absolutely love it!

  • 5 of 5

we absolutely love the simple life at the house.Brad is very kind, he replied email within half an hour. He is very considerate, he dropped drinking water and new chairs for us though there are plenty of chairs. There is no TV and internet and it becomes a bless. We spent quality family time as well as reading time. Sitting at the chairs outside,with the lake view and wind breeze, we had a great family time. the bedroom has one queen and two twins, it fits for a middle size family. This is my son first college summer, he enjoys reading on the deck in the morning, kayaking in the lake and sitting on the deck with lake view. We would like to come back again. This is not a fancy place, but a great place for people enjoy reading and family time.

Nice cabin with a great view

  • 4 of 5

Loved listening to the waves at night with the bedroom window open. The cabin was a nice getaway. I wish the bathroom was off the bedroom and not off the porch, but it was nice. Lots of nice towns and waterfalls to see around the area. The private road is 10mph to get to the cabin, just to let people know.

Perfect girls' weekend spot!

  • 5 of 5

Spent three wonderful nights here and it was exactly what we needed! It's situated just right so it's private and neighbors are not on top of you. Flat lakefront where you can walk right into the water, which many places on that road can't offer. The covered deck was so nice to have as we did run into some inclement weather. Great spot to watch the storm move down the lake!

The house had more than enough room for the three of us, but we spent almost all of our time outside. Huge outdoor space. Bedroom gets a great cross-breeze so it cooled right down for sleeping. The kitchen was small but definitely workable and was stocked with everything you would need - dishes, cooking untensils, frying pans, etc.

Brad was so helpful and made staying here a breeze. Responded quickly when we had a question.

We would definitely return!

The camp was as expected. Enough comforts and relaxing. Lots of deck and yard space as well as seating and parking. Great escape from Wi-Fi and air conditioning. Would definitely recommend!
