Because the running water in the cottage comes directly from the lake, the owners have installed a whole house UV water filtration system that all of the water goes through before it enters the house. As a precautionary measure, the owners recommend that you bring your own drinking water. A brita filter pitcher is available for use if you would prefer not to bring your own drinking water. The water is safe for cooking and bathing.
You must bring your own bed linens, pillows, blankets, and towels with you. Limited bed linens, pillows, blankets, and towels are available for use if you would rather not bring your own, but if used, must be washed and put away at the end of your stay in the same condition as you found them.
Swimming, boating, kayaking, fishing, or any activities on or near the property are strictly at your own risk.

Cozy, well stocked, perfect cottage!
This was our fifth year visiting Cayuga lake. We absolutely love staying at this cottage. It is so well stocked with basic pharmacy supplies, paper products, sheets, towels, kayaks and more. They have everything you need for a wonderful stay. The binder of instructions is awesome with photos and instructions on how to use the appliances, television, where items are located and helpful tips (would love to have a binder in every rental property like this one!!). Julie is a pleasure to work with, very flexible and accommodating. The location is perfect especially for young children and the view is beautiful. I highly recommend staying here.
Even with a week of rain it was a nice place to be.
Nice place to be with great access to the lakeand surrounding areas.
Great location, clean house, responsive host!
The house is conveniently located near the lake. It is clean and its condition matches the description in the ad. We found the master bedroom a little too warm for us, but other rooms are pretty well air conditioned . ( July can be a hot month after all). I would recommend the house for a short stay.
Beautiful location! Amazing stay!
Everything was organized and clean. Being steps from the water and kayaks was a definite plus! The sunsets on this side of Lake Cayuga are amazing. This was a perfect cabin to get our daughter away from her studies at Cornell for the Fall break. Cozy quarters but we were comfortable enough to invite a couple of her classmates to join us. I would rent this place again in a heartbeat.
Well maintained and fully equipped cottage with great location...wonderful way to stretch last few days of summer
Peaceful Lake Retreat
The cabin was a wonderful, peaceful retreat as we dropped our daughter off at Cornell. It had everything, room for six, kitchen, washer/dryer. Just make sure you bring provisions for breakfast since the markets and restaurants are a little far. Very relaxing and great satellite TV. Couldn't have asked for more!
