About the property

3BR, 2BA, Sleeps 8/. Also check out other property 940548

Also see our sister property VRBO 940548

Just completed July of 2015; a remodeled 3 bedroom home with modern décor in the heart of wine country. The house is located within walking distance of Buttonwood Winery where you can indulge in the tasting or enjoy live music as offered on various dates throughout the summer. In addition, there are 6 other wineries within 5 miles. For those of you that prefer beer, the Boathouse Beer Garden is just a 1/2 mile south.

The kitchen has granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. It is well equipped with everything you will need including a Margarita machine. The house has been furnished with new furniture in every room including pillow top Serta mattresses for your sleeping comfort. All linens are included with rental with the exception of beach towels. The bathrooms have glass showers with jetted massage panels. The main floor living room has a fireplace and comfortable leather couch to enjoy on those cold nights. Just off from the living room is a three season room with a couch and a rocking chair where you can take in the view of the lake.

The Basement living room is set up for entertainment, it has chess/checker table, foosball table and large TV with DVD surround sound to enjoy movies or your favorite TV show. WIFI and cable are included.

The house has two decks one on each side of the house; one is covered with a comfortable patio set and the other side is open with a patio table and chairs. Next to the deck is a brand new stainless steel grill. For an evening under the stars there is a patio with a fire pit great for bonfires and smores. When in need of a nap or a peaceful place to read a book, there are two Mayan hammocks nestled between the trees.

Across the road down 50 stairs you will find 112 feet of private lakefront. A newly constructed sturdy dock great for fishing or relaxing with a glass of wine. Another Mayan hammock is waterside as well as a picnic table for your afternoon lunch or dinner. There are beach Adirondack chairs as well as lounge chairs for you to enjoy the lake front. The flat rocks that inhabit the stony shore will give the kids hours of enjoyment skipping stones. A two person Kayak is also available for those that want to explore the lake.

The house has a 1 acre lot so you can enjoy outdoor games and plenty of parking. There is enough parking to accommodate a boat trailer if you choose to bring a boat to launch at Dean's Cove (just one mile north).

About Gary or Kimberly Bell

We have lived just a few miles north of the rental on Cayuga Lake for the past 9 years. Living on the lake is like being on vacation every day, we wanted others to enjoy lake living/vacationing so we put our passion for re-construction to work and remodeled the lake rental. We love the area, the scenery, the wineries, and the numerous outdoor activities available.

Gary or Kimberly Bell purchased this house in 2014

What makes this house unique

We love this home in particular for the view and easy access to the lake. The yard provides plenty of space for yard games and yet the beach front is perfect for swimming, relaxing, kayaking, and picnicking. The best of all worlds.

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

First impressions are important however with this lovely home the second impression was the best! When we entered the house we saw how immaculate and new everything was! the kitchen has many amenities expect good cutting knives, but we love to cook so we carry our own knives! lol The upstairs has three lovely rooms without any closets but we fit everything in the drawers and hung up our other items in the downstairs closet. The basement holds the family room or game room and a bathroom. It has a full pull out couch. The main floor has the kitchen, living room, and bathroom. Both bathrooms are brand new and the showers are awesome! The main house has radiant heating and your feet are never cold. We kept our drinks on the porch since it was cool but not freezing. We did have good weather despite being December. The electric fireplace in the living room also gave the house a warm feeling! We managed to tour several wineries but never got to the one next door to the house. Next time we stay we will definetly stop over! Higly recommend it!

Beautiful home; great location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent an early fall week at this property. The house is clean and very comfortable with beautiful, modern finishes. It has a great location, close to the wineries, and a short drive to downtown Ithaca. Gary was readily available to address any questions or concerns and offered great suggestions for nearby hiking, shopping and restaurants. We had a wonderful week and will definitely return.

Relaxing reunion with friends

  • 5 of 5

House was the perfect location, we were able to end our day at the winery next door (amazing wine and staff)

House was clean and well equipped only thing we would have loved would have been cutting boards since we cooked meals every night with our group.

Our group loved the dock area you had your own private oasis.

Great place to rent for family, group of friends or couples.

Clean, tidy, amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We highly enjoyed our stay at the house. It was so clean and comfortable. Very quiet yet central location for Geneva, Watkins Glen, and Ithaca all being 20 minutes away with wineries and brewerys within walking distance. We would recommend this property to anyone and will be looking to return.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Grape Escape house for a week. Gary and Kimberly are gracious hosts who made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Wine trails are very close. We used the beach for fishing and picnicking and hung out one evening around the side yard fire pit. House is very clean and comfortable! We would definitely stay at this house again.
