Simplicity the ultimate sophistication a beautiful home on the lake in the wine country of the Finger Lakes. Endless activities connected with Cornell, Ithaca College, Wells College, many other Colleges surround Cayuga Lake.

Every lake activity, sailing, water skiing, rowing, etc.

Every night summer bonfire, with smores on the Lake front. A circle of nature surrounding your friends and family. A yearly tradition. We brought our family here to the Lake since 1976.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: About the owner: The shoreline of Cayuga Lake is my home. I grew up in Florida, vacationing in Ithaca from 1976 every summer. When I retired I was able to purchase this contemporary treasure. Time here has inspired two of my children to choose Cornell for their education. Fire pits, smoors on the lake, and hot fudge sundaes from Purity Ice Cream get you through those growth moments of life. We are spoiled with Tempurpedic beds, air conditioning, and city water (all the luxuries not common to the lake cottages of our years as a tenant, each summer). Quiet surrounds us, as in a bubble, while outdoor grilling, as others enjoy the hot tub in summer or winter. When playing my 1952 Steinway in the music room overlooking the gorge, time stands still. I love to sleep in the loft with a fire at night, while my kids are playing cards in the lower living room by the fire. We are connected, as if in a tree house, to all that is mother nature. It is difficult to be humble about my sweet little treasure, but it is easy to be a steward of this precious land.

Why the Owner Chose Ithaca, NY, USA:
Why the Owner Chose Ithaca: Travelers report to me about their stay, that it had been a gift to be here, whether for a family reunion, a single writer, a bride and groom, or a lone musician. All seem to rest, play, learn and a few report that magic happened.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Unique Benefits at this House: There is a mother Eagle who has had her nest full of new little babies for 7 years now from the same high nest in a tree on the North property line, over the gorge. Every year, like the clock work of Spring, she never seems to tire, she never ages, she soars the shore, over the lake, with grace and strength. Each year, her precious eaglets hatch and after finding their own wings, they take flight. She then sends them off.....then does it all over again in a year. A glimpse of her is renewal…where does she get that from? Here…in Ithaca, just like I do. I wish the same for you.
