Cayuga Lake (the most beautiful of the Finger Lakes) is part of the Barge Canal System which means you can boat from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Ontario and all the way to Ithaca, Watkins Glen, Geneva, and more. Cayuga Lake is 42 miles long. The widest point is three-and-one-half miles. The deepest spot is 435 feet, so you better wear your life jacket!

Cayuga Lake is wonderful for all those who love wine, boating, fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, sunsets, moonbeams, and rainbows. Fishermen enjoy an over abundance of landlocked salmon, lake, brown, and rainbow trout, pickerel, pike, perch, bass, and smelt (in the spring).

Perfect location and homey accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I found this place last minute on our trip to the Finger Lakes and I'm so glad we did, it made my Birthday weekend! It was the perfect place to come back to after exploring all day, super relaxing and cozy. I love that it was tucked back away by the lake, it was so nice. We got to go out on the dock and fish and just enjoy the scenery, although you also get a great view right from your cabin! Gregory (the owner) was great and made sure we (and our dog) had everything we needed and more for our 2 nights stay. And he is quite the character which made the whole experience that much more memorable, a really nice guy. It was so peaceful and calming, it was exactly what we needed, but it's also a great spot for a fun time, it's all you need in one! It's located in the perfect spot and location, close to everything you need- wine, hiking, fishing, waterfalls, everything we enjoy. I highly recommend this place for anyone at all looking to get away in the Finger Lakes region that wants to enjoy all the beauty it has to offer. We will definitely be looking Gregory up again when we come back for another visit.

If you're looking for a Charming place to unwind ReDiscover your inner self I recommend this lake front view. Filled with the beauty of life and all the tenderness that nature can bestow.

It is sweet and clean with comfortable cozy bedding. Fishing a cast away. Hiking is all around you.

If you prefer golfing the Trumansburg Golf Course is just 2.5 miles away. I encourage all of you to take a break from the city life and come and discover your self in this wonderful surrounding of peace and Waterfront.

Tatsiana and Jack, Belgium

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I live in Belgium. On the way back from a vacation in California, we decided to make a stop in NY and say hello to our Facebook friend, Gregory(owner). He invited us to come and stay with him at Kingston Beach. It is really "THE MAX". We initially wanted to stay for 2 nights but later on we decided to extend our stay and remained an entire week. It is an ideal place for fishing, walking........and total relaxation. Good food can be found in the area (Trumansburg), and in the evenings when maybe you do not feel to go away, you can relax and watch satellite TV. We enjoyed ourselves very much and we can recommend this experience to anyone, not to forget Greg, who is one of the nicest guys we ever met.

lake cabin

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time at the big cabin, roomy bedroom, comfortable, clean, large living room, with a wood stove, plenty of wood to use for my 5 nights, 6 day stay, woodsy outside with a view of the lake from the extended porch, perfectly located close to Trumansburg, wine trails and a 15 minute drive to Ithaca and Cornell University. The owner is nice, polite and accommodating. I will be visiting soon and will stay there again.

Lake rental

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at the lake front cabin with a friend and two teenage boys.The cabin was perfect the camp owner was easy going and a pleasure to deal with full of local knowledge of activities,fishing hotspots.I called for the rental on a last minute day before arriving request. He allowed us to arrive without deposit or security.We enjoyed it so much we asked for a 2 day extension and Greg made Extra accommodations so we could stay.We are now going to try to squeeze at least one or two more stays this fall.I do have one complaint I wish I found this rental campground sooner.

Unique Place to Stay--even if you don't like wine!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently rode our motorcycle up from PA to explore the Fingerlakes. If you like fancy, pristine, accomodations—don't stay here. But if you like cozy, welcoming and totally different—this is the place!!! I had found this "camp" online but was hesitant to book it online as pictures can be deceiving. We really wanted to stay in one of the yurts, but they were booked. One of the older cabins was available—and once we got there, we decided it was perfect for us. I called it our "cabbage" as it was part cabin, part cottage—it had everything we needed with old-school charm. It was the perfect home base, as we took day trips (to Ithaca and Skaneatelas), to come home and enjoy a cold beer on the dock or our little porch. (Yes, we realize it is wine country, but we beer drinkers found plenty to do!) We felt right at home and truly enjoyed everyone we met there....including visits from the resident pets! It was a bit pricey, but there wasn't much to choose from in that area—and we decided it was worth every penny. We hope to go back someday with friends.

Fellow Bikers: the long gravel driveway once you turn of the main road was a bit unnerving the first time, but not bad once you get used to it (but don't do in the dark the first time). Also if you rent one of the older cabins, you can park your bike under roof at night. Rode 800 miles in 4 days--great trip!
