About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-7)

Charming describes what you will find when you arrive at Charmante-on-Cayuga. A quaint cottage with a large eat-in kitchen, a deck over looking the lake and a private beach. Just twenty steps down a gentle incline takes you to the waterfront. Enjoy a peaceful vacation at one of widest points on Cayuga Lake. Charmante-on-Cayuga is perfectly situated for family outings, walking, biking, touring wineries or just sitting on the dock. In the early morning one can hear the fish jump or the birds chirping. In the evenings, enjoy the stunning sunset while taking delight in the company of family and friends.

Charmante-on-Cayuga has just completed a full renovation May 2012.

About The Owner

We have been renting on the East Shore of Cayuga Lake for the last few years and really fell in love with the area. Three years ago we purchased the adjoining property, Alilys-on-Cayuga, We just closed on Charmante in June. While we want folks to enjoy the cottage now, we are looking forward to a complete renovation in the late fall. It is just a great spot to relax and watch the world go by while having great amenities nearby!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Cayuga Lake

One gets the best of both worlds at Charmante-on-Cayuga! On one hand there is a great deal of privacy and quiet. The cottage has over 100 feet of lake front, a private dock, and a picnic table right on the beach for lunch or enjoying wine and cheese in the late afternoon. It is so peaceful on this bend in the lake! On the other hand, the cottage is 30 minutes to Ithaca, Cornell and Ithaca College with all of the hustle and bustle that comes with going into town. There are wonderful restaurants of every type in Ithaca, a fantastic Farmer's Market on Saturday and Sundays and lots of shopping. State parks are a short drive away for hiking & biking and there are numerous wineries throughout the Finger Lakes region. Charmante-on-Cayuga provides a great, central location to vacation where one can do nothing but sit and take in life or take advantage of all the area has to offer!


Winieries! The Cayuga Lake Wine Trail! The Seneca Lake Wine trail is nearby along with many wineries in the Finger Lakes Region!
