About the property

6 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 16 in a Comfy and Spacious Environment

Thank you for your interest in our home!

If you are looking to accommodate a larger group, or this home is booked, please take a look at our other homes: VRBO #467231 and VRBO #1041414. The homes are neighbors and can sleep up to 36 guests between the three.

The property is nearly an acre and has 150 feet of waterfront, providing plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the various seasons. Whether grilling on the porch in the summer or enjoying a fire by the shore in autumn, this space provides a quiet place to relax with friends and family.

Our home sleeps 12-16 people comfortably in 6 bedrooms.

The driveway leads down the hill and directly to the front door. Over the years, kids of all ages and family members with varying states of health have loved the property year round.

Located on the west shore of Cayuga Lake, the house is just minutes from both college campuses, Wegmans grocery store, and downtown Ithaca. The route into town is accessible year round.

We provide a kayak and canoe each home for your enjoyment.

In the dead of winter, the frozen tributaries and streams surrounding Cayuga push resident waterfowl into our backyard. It's an amazing way to sleep.

Wonderful winter spot

  • 5 of 5

The entire experience was great! The home was comfortable and plenty large enough for four couples and a large group of kids. Elissa recommended a great winter hike along the black diamond trail, which was right across the road. The driveways were shoveled and salted when we arrived, so we had no problem getting to the house or enjoying Ithaca.

Every room was well appointed and comfortable. The fire-pit on the back deck was great. We had hot-chocolate on the back deck and roasted smores; there may have been some snowball fights with the dwindling piles of snow. Would recommend this house and these hosts to anyone looking for a great getaway spot.

Lovely stay on Cayuga Lake. Close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

Our friend group of 14 had a great time at this lovely lake cottage. All appreciated how spacious the house was and how we never felt cramped. Cornell was only 10 minutes away, along with all the Ithaca things to do. Walk down to the water is a bit step, as Alisa and Mark mentioned, but was manageable. Fire-pit on the lake shore for the chilly nights was a bonus, as was the small fire-pit on the deck. The house was clean and well equipped, even for our groups size. We all enjoyed our time in the house and spending time back in Ithaca. We are planning for a spring return to this great house.

Wonderful spacious house with great views

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is just amazing! Just far enough from town that we were able to enjoy quiet peacefulness of the lake, but close enough that we could quickly get to Ithaca for groceries and to sight see. The house itself is spacious, clean, and very well appointed. Being able to drive to the front door is really helpful when arriving with groceries and young kids. Owners were very responsive and made sure we had everything we needed. Lake views are incredible and we grilled on the deck almost every night we were there. Our kids raved about the beautiful sun room and so enjoyed the kayaks and canoes. We can’t wait to come back!

Great place with plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

Seven adults and a toddler fit comfortably, both for sleeping arrangements and having space to spread out. The lake access is quite nice, and we had a great time using the kayaks. The incline from the water to the house is significant, enough that our older guests only did it once a day. Communication with owners was pleasant and quick.

Large, spacious accommodations on gorgeous Cayuga Lake. Very close to Ithaca.

  • 4 of 5

The house is comfortable and easy to adjust to. The lakefront is quite a haul down and back again so avoid if you have anyone in your party with a physical limitation. Otherwise, a very cool place to spend some time with friends and loved ones.

We needed accommodations for out of town relatives attending a family wedding.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very helpful & responsive to our questions. We enjoyed our stay and made good use of the baby grand piano for family song-a-longs. Beds were comfy, house was well-maintained. My husband remarked that the yard could use attention as the yard had such nice potential. I reminded him that he was on vacation. We enjoyed our stay.
