2018 Season - May 12 to October 27, 2018
Hogback Two is our main cottage on the West Shore of Cayuga Lake in New York's Finger Lakes. The drive-to cottage is on a private beach with its own dock for fishing and boating. Boat mooring usually available. You're surrounded by 50+ acres of woodlands and orchards.
Hogback Two sleeps 2 to 6, with master bedroom (queen bed) , small bunk room (twin bunk beds), alcove futon (queen bed), and a separate and private sleeping cabin with two double beds. There is a full bath room with shower attached to the main cottage.
The main cottage features a comfortable living area with a wood burning fireplace and a large picture window offering spectacular views of Cayuga Lake. French doors between the living room and porch provide an open and comfortable living space. A screened porch for relaxing and dining is right next to the kitchen's pass through window. Well-equipped kitchen includes coffeemaker, toaster, microwave, mixer, blender, etc.
No smoking inside cottage.
Our rustic cottage is only partially insulated, with no central heating or AC. There is a fireplace and we provide portable electric space heaters and fans for cooling. You supply wood for the fireplace.
Outside picnic/BBQ area with large charcoal grill, fire pit and beach.
Ideal location in the heart of the Finger Lakes where you can enjoy a multitude of outdoor activities - swimming, boating, great fishing (spring/summer/fall - see snapshots above from September), hiking, biking, golf, observing abundant wildlife, to name a few. Or just relax on the beach with friends or a good book.
10 miles north of Ithaca - near Cornell University and Ithaca College, on the Cayuga/Seneca Wine Trail, close to four state parks, and just two miles from Taughannock Falls State Park and its famous 215 ft. waterfall. Waterfalls abound in the area and it's a pretty walk in the woods to Hogback Falls after which our summer camp was named.
