About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 8 (6 Adults and 2 Children Max)

Morning Dew is a stunning home on crystal clear Cayuga Lake. This home boasts a level yard and a walkout basement that is just steps to more than 40 feet of private lake frontage with a large dock that gets you out into pristine water for some great swimming and prime fishing territory.

The home is over 1500 square feet, with an open design that takes advantage of the 180 degree lake views. With sliding glass doors and a giant picture window overlooking the huge deck, dock and lake, you will always have a lake view wherever you go throughout the house. The house is fully winterized with central heat, and is available all year long.

Inside, there is space for 6-8 people to sleep comfortably. The master bedroom is on the main floor and has one queen bed with its own private sliding glass door that has you waking up to spectacular lake views. Upstairs there are three other sleeping areas- one large bedroom with two queen beds, a smaller open bedroom with one double bed, and a loft area with a full size futon; all with views of the lake.

We listened to our guests, and starting in 2018 we are offering the option to have Linens and Towels available for a small fee upon checkout. The system will charge you the fee, however if you choose to bring your own Linens and Towels, let us know and we will refund the amount within 2 days. Also, we added a whole house AC system that will keep you comfortable without the old window units distracting you from spectacular views. Add in the ceiling fans located throughout the house and your family will stay comfortable day and night.

To make your stay as relaxing as possible, Morning Dew is well outfitted for your use, and includes a washer and dryer and a well equipped kitchen with pots, pans and utensils. For your entertainment, the home has a 47’ TV, cable, Wi-Fi, Sonos stereo system, board games and two fishing kayaks. Outside you will enjoy the gated deck overlooking the lake, wood fire pit by the water, and a large gas grill.

But that is just the beginning. Morning Dew is located in some of the most desirable parts of the lake area, as it is situated just south of the Cayuga State Park. The park begins ½ mile to the North and offers public amenities such as a sandy beach, a boat launch and wonderful updated playground, all within a short 10 min walk.

Looking for something to eat? Less than 1 mile in either direction by foot, car, bike or boat gets you to some local favorites; Wolffies Restaurant, as well as Jimmy's Lakeside at the Deerhead Inn. Both have docks on the lake, wonderful views and full lunch and dinner menus.

Finally, Morning Dew is at the beginning of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail; giving you accesses to some of the finest wines the Finger Lakes area has to offer. This is all on top of some of the great attractions in the area including the Seneca Falls historical sites, 4 golf courses within 5 miles, Taughannock Falls, Buttermilk Falls, Waterloo Premium Outlets and the beautiful town of Ithaca. And if that wasn't enough, the brand new Del Lago Casino is less than 7 miles from the home. With all the things to do, you and your family will have an unforgettable vacation.


If booking between Columbus Day and Memorial Day, please note that the dock will be out of the water and the patio furniture may be in storage for the winter. Please contact us for more information on this as we can give you up to date info on the status.

Occupancy includes pillows and comforters. There is an optional Linens and Towel fee that will be charged upon checkout. If you choose to bring your own, let us know before the second payment is due and we will refund the fee within two days.

Walk out in the Morning Dew today.

About David and Lisa

Family with 2 children and a love for the Lake life. We use this as our vacation home as well!

David and Lisa purchased this house in 2013

Why David and Lisa chose Seneca Falls

The location sold it for us. With a level lot, walking proximity to restaurants, a beach and a convenient store, as well as the newly updated home itself, we realized that this was an unbelievable find. It was love at first sight for us.

What makes this house unique

This home was renovated back in 1980 and then again updated in 2009, but the true draw for this home is its location on the lake and it's level property. This rare feature allows quick access to the water, and unparalleled views.

Can't wait for a return trip

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed here twice and will surely return again. For us the highlight is the large waterfront deck – perfect for beautiful sunrises, relaxing with a glass of wine or reading a book. Great for nature lovers as osprey, herons, ducks and other beautiful birds are often seen. You can fish right off the dock, sit around the waterfront fire pit and take out the kayaks.

Very relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean and well kept house in an amazing location. Very well equipped kitchen. Fantastic place to sit and relax on the deck and enjoy the lake. The owners were also very helpful with our request to check in early. Only negative was there not really being enough towels for our group - just 4 bath towels for a booking for 4 adults and 3 kids.

Never disappoints

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at this property and it didn't disappoint. Perfect, tranquil location overlooking the lake. Lisa and David added a new feature - providing towels and linens which was really convenient and greatly appreciated. This is a great property that is well maintained and feels like home and Lisa and Dave make the process easy! Highly recommend this hidden gem!

We enjoyed ourselves very much. Spent alot of time on the deck and the swing under the deck, which is a good place to read a book. We would have given a top review, but the beds were a little hard, but that is because we like softer beds. All in all, it is a great place.
