Located on the first level is a bedroom with a double bed, TV, and sliding doors that open to a large deck that overlooks the lake.

About the owner: My husband and I have lived about 10 miles from our cottage since 2001. My husband grew up in Dryden, NY and I fell in love with the water while growing up on Long Island. We are both graduates of Cornell University and we worth together in a family business in Ithaca. Neither of us have found a place that we would like to live more than our beautiful Finger Lakes region.
Why the Owner Chose King Ferry, NY, USA:
Our lake home has been in our family for over 4 decades. Throughout that time family members have created and help maintain a vacation destination where people can enjoy each others' company while surrounded by beauty. Once a mostly seasonal cottage, our parents had an expansive addition built in 2000. They lived full time at this wonderful home until they decided to downsize in 2008. At that time my husband and I volunteered to maintain the home. We have lived just 10 miles from our cottage since 2001 and own a long standing business in Ithaca. We are thrilled that the option of offering vacation rentals helps us to keep this very special place in our family. After five years of vacation rental and enjoying countless glowing guest comments, I know many people feel the same way about our home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home holds wonderful memories for my family - holidays and summer get-togethers with all the cousins playing in the lake, fishing off the dock, adults relaxing, grilling a great meal to share, enjoying the heavenly sunsets, and making s'mores over a bonfire.
