Escape from the world at Caywood Cottage! You'll feel your worries melting away as you leave the pavement behind and wind your way through 1.25 miles of vineyards before arriving home. This cozy cottage on a private, dead end gravel road (that we share with Silver Thread Winery!) features modern conveniences, wooded privacy and lake access for those wishing to relax, sip, and splash.
A short flight of stairs from our four-car parking area leads you to a wonderfully large deck. If you're able to tear yourself away from the view, the front door leads you into a bright, open great room. The beautiful eat-in kitchen opens to the living area with a full-size futon and a flat screen TV, with Netflix and a blu-ray player, complete with a wide array of videos for cinefiles of all ages. A closet full of games and books, help pass the occasional rainy day - or provide a welcome distraction after dinner before a night of campfire, S'mores and Riesling! Original hardwood floors bring clean character to the home and huge picture windows with breath-taking panoramic lake views escort the outside beauty in. Two cozy bedrooms, each with a queen size bed, join the living room futon in providing comfortable sleeping spaces for up to 6 adults!
A full bathroom with a new corner shower enclosure and a stacked washer-dryer will help you clean up from a day hike or lounging at the lake - and get ready for a night out at one of the area's many restaurants, wineries, or breweries.
To access the private lakefront, guests can either walk or drive down the gravel drive to the lake, where 50 feet of private lakefront, outdoor furniture, a fire ring, and dock are available. There is parking for 2 cars near the shed, and a canoe is provided for your aquatic exploration.
On the east shore of Seneca Lake and close to the west-side of Cayuga Lake, Caywood Cottage is surrounded by some of the best wineries, breweries, and distilleries in the area! Historic Watkins Glen and it's jaw-dropping State park is only a 25 minute drive south, and the cities of Geneva and Ithaca are a short drive away. Escape into nature in less than 30 minutes at the majestic Taughannock Falls and only 20 minutes to the peaceful splendor of the Finger Lakes National Forest.
At Caywood Cottage, you CAN have it all - privacy, views, a deck to grill and sip on, a quiet dock to sit on - and still be nearby the most popular area attractions and activities!
