There is a great deal to see and do in Upstate New York. We are about 25 minutes from the easternmost Finger Lake, Skaneateles Lake. The village of Skaneateles has numerous shopping and dining options plus boat tours on Skaneateles Lake. The mail boat tour during the summer is particularly memorable - one of few still operating in the country.

Auburn is 6 miles west of Skaneateles - a small city, it is the hometown of two major Civil War figures - William Seward and Harriett Tubman. The historical sites are well worth a visit.

To the east on NY 80, Cooperstown is a most pleasant ride through the beautiful countryside. Cooperstown has numerous attractions including the Fenimore Art Museum, Baseball Hall of Fame, Farmers Museum, many interesting shops and Revolutionary War history. Don't miss lunch or dinner at the Otesaga Hotel!

To the north, Syracuse has many options to include Syracuse University, the Everson Museum, a revitalized downtown and the Erie Canal Museum. Lunch at the famous Dinosaur BBQ is a must!

Further north, up I-81 about 100 miles is the 1,000 Islands Region. Major communities include Clayton, Alexandria Bay and Sacket's Harbor. The boat museum in Clayton is most comprehensive; a ride on the river from the James Street docks in Alex Bay is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon seeing how the rich and famous lived. Sacket's Harbor was a major battlefield in the War of 1812.

To the south, Ithaca and Cornell University are a short 40 minutes away. Corning, home of the world famous Corning Glass Works, is about 90 miles from Tully Lake. The revamped Glass museum and the village of Corning are beautiful.

In short, there are many sights to see and experiences to enjoy!

PS - Don't miss the smaller pleasures in life such as the A&W in Cortland, the Country Flavor's ice cream stand in Little York (huge scoops for not much money!) Doug's Fish Fry (locations in Skaneateles and Cortland), the summer Cortland Rep playhouse on Little York Lake, the kiddie park at the Little York Park and Purity Ice Cream in Ithaca.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: While Pam and I grew up in New York State, this is our ideal place to be due to the location, the quality of the home and the sense of peace you feel here. I'm a graduate of Cornell, Pam of Manhattanville College and we both have masters from Syracuse. Our careers took us to Rochester, Sacramento and now Scottsdale. We love being at the lake - plenty of space to spread out and entertain family and friends in comfort! We have furnished the home with many antiques from our families as well as personal momentos. You will love this location as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Tully, NY, USA:
When we built the home in 2002 ( my Dad bought the old fishing cottage that dated back to the 1920s in 1968) we wanted to capitalize on the private location - end of the road and water on three sides. Unlike many other lake properties, this is totally private and secluded. Looking to the south, all you see is water and the beautiful, ever lasting hills. The lake is relatively small so most boaters are in canoes, on boards or in small watercraft. Sit on the porch (take your pick of one of four) and wave to those going by - it is so peaceful. When we built the house, we incorporated the old claw foot bathtub from the old cottage as well as four Tompkins County grilles in the overlook; our objective has been to provide our guests a comfortable, relaxing experience. We've had the property going on 50 years; we love to share it with our guests. It is like 'On Golden Pond.'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The porches are great - perfect for entertaining. On a cool evening, enjoy a fire while watching TV or reading a book. The wireless is perfect for your PC or ipad; take it anywhere. The adults can be downstairs while the kids can watch videos or play games upstairs. Go for a row and explore the lake? Lots of nooks and crannies here to explore, especially all the old cottages at the north end of the lake. While we are secluded, we are a short, scenic 25 minutes from Skaneateles or Syracuse - all the dining and entertainment you might want.
