    • Windgarth House is located right on the shore of Cayuga Lake with easy, level access from a quiet public road that only serves lakefront properties. There is no steep driveway to get to the house - just park right in front of the garage. It has a gently sloping lawn from the house to the lake. Walk right out the back door, across the lake and you will be by the lake, where there is a large deck and swimming dock. Windgarth House is ideal for wading, swimming and fishing. The water by the shore is shallow and great for young children. We provide a canoe and kayak for our guests, life jackets in sizes from infant to adult, and other flotation devices (tubes, etc.) You can take long walks along the lake in both directions on the quiet, well-maintained public road, and if you bring bicycles, there are miles of beautiful country roads to explore. Windgarth House is in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country, within a few miles of several wineries.
