Excellent Location and Nice Amenities Made for a Decent Stay

  • 3 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and two children fit very comfortably and all enjoyed their week here. Aside from the perfect location in good proximity to Ithaca's many activities and services, things we liked about the property include the superb view of the lawn and dock from both inside and outside the main floor, the gurgling stream, the convenient room layout, the clean bathrooms, and the spacious kitchen. We enjoyed having fires in the firepit, but you will need to buy your own wood. The exterior of the property could have been a little cleaner and the carpeting was musty and worn, and we noticed a pet odor on numerous occasions that fortunately wasn't a problem for any of us. I would just add that the driveway is steep but it's a price to be paid when staying on lower Taughannock Blvd. In it's current condition, I doubt we will return next year, but we still had a good time and made some great memories. Thanks Julie!

Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This is our second trip to your vacation home and once again, it was everything we could have hoped for. From the close proximity to everything we wanted to do, to the cleanliness and comfort, we enjoyed our entire vacation. We will definitely be making a return trip next summer. Thanks again!

Great stay...and then something great.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house over labor day weekend, 2016. A mix of IC friends and our families. We really liked the house...comfortable beds, a nice kitchen, the lakefront dock/yard/bonfire was amazing. We were outside a ton, swimming, grilling and sitting by the fire every night. We met and liked Julie the owner (who lives next door). I'd usually end my review here with a "thanks Julie, we'll be back". But something else happened that was really special. Our 6-year-old lost his favorite go-to-bed-every-night stuffed animal somewhere on the trip. Catastrophe! We got in touch with Julie, who looked, but couldn't find "Wolfie". The kid was sad at bedtime for WEEKS. Then-- unexpectedly, a package arrived in the mail in late November. It was our beaten up old wolf with a little note that said "I'm so glad to be home" with a heart.

Amazing. Julie, thanks so much--- you're awesome.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this property with everything we needed to be comfortable and enjoy ourselves. The view of the lake is beautiful, nice to wake up to and also to enjoy from the deck at the end of the day with a glass of wine. We were so busy that we didn't get to take full advantage of the waterfront dock and the canoes and fire pit. Next time!

About Julie

We live next door, down the same driveway. We have owned this property for over 14 years, and have been renting by the week during the summer for 9 years. As we live on the lake to enjoy the summer months, we will be nearby to address any issues that may arise.

Julie purchased this house in 2002

What makes this house unique

Our rental property features a large lawn on the beach. This is a very rare find, especially so close to Ithaca. Enjoy lawn games and a large fire pit. From the dock, you have a great view of Cornell University and Ithaca College. There is plenty of parking to accommodate a number of cars without issue.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time. 3 families all managed to squeeze in just fine! Canoeing was fun - and managed to hike in several of the parks. As former Cornellians we really appreciated getting to know the West Side of the lake!
