About Jane Brannigan

My husband is a Cornell Alumni and Ithaca holds a special place in his heart. Although we live in Brooklyn, we visit the house as much as we can and like nothing better than relaxing on the deck and enjoying the lovely sunsets.

Jane Brannigan purchased this house in 1995

Why Jane Brannigan chose Ithaca

The large outdoor area makes it ideal for a family vacation or celebration. The water is deep enough to dive into from the dock and the Farmer's Market is a short kayak ride away!

What makes this house unique

The large expanse of lake frontage and decking make this property unique and a perfect setting for outdoor entertaining.

Fantastic property, excellent owners!

  • 5 of 5

Jane and Ben's place was such a special place, perfectly located on Cayuga. The pictures do not do the house justice. It is the ideal place to experience a getaway. I recommend this place without any reservations!

Great stay for Reunion weekend

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for Cornell reunion weekend in 2017 with two other couples. We had a great experience overall. The owners were quite accommodating and easy to communicate with. The house was clean and well equipped for our stay including adequate kitchen supplies and a gas grill. The three bedrooms were a good size for couples with a great view of the lake from the master bedroom. The master bath was a bit unusual with an outdated (80’s?) Kohler Habitat tub/shower/steam bath/sun-bathing unit. I am sure this was pricey at the time. Only the shower was functional during our stay and getting in and out of the unit was awkward.

The exterior of the house and the property is a bit run down. Many of the windows did not have screens and they were taped shut, so we could not open them. Some did not have window coverings. Nothing serious, it didn't hinder our activities but it would have been nice to open windows in the bedroom at night. In room air conditioning was very nice, however. Parking in the lower lot is preferred over roadside parking if you have an SUV.

The best feature of this house is the location right on the lake. What a great spot! There is a relatively large yard at the bottom of the steps down the multi-level wood deck. We enjoyed a fire in the fire pit on a mid-level deck with a few cocktails while enjoying the view and spent some time on the hammock and dock as well.

Great house on Cayuga Lake

  • 5 of 5

A great house on Cayuga Lake very close to Ithaca College and the Commons. We rented for a long weekend for our son's graduation. It was the perfect size for our family. The pool table was terrific for the kids! The only downside is the stairs. If you are older or have anyone in your family with limitations, you cannot stay at this place. We had no problem but you must know this before you book. I would stay here again when in the Ithaca area. Jane is extremely helpful and whole experience was very effortless.

Perfect for Graduation Weekend

  • 5 of 5

First, the owners were professional and prompt with booking and answered follow-up questions promptly as well. The house has a beatiful view (we took many picture of sunsets and sunrises). The beds were comfortable - a good mattress when away is so important! Everything was in working order & the kitchen well-stocked. You enter at the kitchen and dining room level, which worked great for our after-graduation party (other reviewers' tip that this avoids the restaurant crowds grad weekend were spot on; Ithaca Bakery catered and they were wonderful). The living/tv room is on a lower level. All wood floors. It seems that all houses on the lake are on a steep incline, with many stairs. This can be a challenge for older guests. Our grandma in attendance was able to handle the many flights down to the house and then from the house to the dock and yard. The incline is the price for being on the water. We enjoyed a fire in the fire pit one night; other guests had left wood. I encourage anyone needing a spacious home to relax graduation weekend to book this one.

Lovely, clean lakefront home!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed at this 3 bedroom lake house for three nights for our daughter's college graduation. The house is nestled among the trees and has the sound of a nice small waterfall on the property. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and had everything set up for our arrival. The house is very clean and comfortable. Well stocked kitchen necessities (spices, coffee, etc.) added to the convenience. It is only a few minute drive to town or to great hiking. The view of the lake from the balconies is beautiful, and there is an indoor fireplace and pool table and an outdoor pit as well. Well worth the price. :)
