Wake up to the beautiful sunrise on Cayuga Lake, sip coffee on the wraparound deck or on the dock where the fishing is right there for you to enjoy. 57' of lakefront. Very private. Blue herons like to fish there at dawn and dusk - and a pair of ospreys can be observed diving for fish right around the dinner hour. So you know the fishing is good!
Boating, wine trails, the new Del Lago casino and events center, and other attractions await your family. If you have a boat you can bring it,we have 3 docks. Or there are boat and kayak rentals right down the road at Cayuga State Park, along with a nice swimming beach and playground.
Two new kayaks and Old Town canoe for your use on site at no charge. Extra docks next door, too. There is a sandbar close by where boats like to gather. Life jackets are also supplied. Firepit by the water with wood for burning. New gas grill with propane on side deck.
Cottage is bright and comfortable with amenities and panoramic views. New stainless steel stove and dishwasher added. A/C units up and down (4). Very comfortable right on the water......
Enjoy a complimentary lake wine and snack on your arrival when booking a full week stay.
The house is clean and comfortable - but not so fancy that guests can't just enjoy themselves and the outdoors. Living room and kitchen area in front of the house are spacious and great for relaxing and entertaining (new flooring and paint (2017). Kitchen table for dining and WiFi/full cable channels available throughout the house, up and down. Cellphone service is good on land and on water.
1st floor back bedroom (with lake outside door) has queen double foam core queen fold out futon, full sleeper, and new Ikea furniture. Or can also be used as a second large living space if desired. Large bath with whirlpool tub also on first floor, with stacking laundry. Kids can also tent right outside if they choose.
Upstairs studio has a queen bedroom set, daybed, 1/2 bath, 2 fold-away twins, and a set of bunk beds. Lots of quiet space for sleeping, playing games, and listening to the waves lap up onto the shore as the moonlight glows over the lake. Great cross breezes - A/C unit in each bedroom. Each floor has ceiling fans in every room (except baths).
The Blue Heron has off-road parking for 2 vehicles. Ask about additional parking which can be arranged on site. Two lakeside restaurants are just a short walk for your convenience. Miniature golf/ golf course, playgrounds all nearby. Great lakeside road for biking.
Of course, the Finger Lakes offer wine trails all around, including within a few miles. Wine tours can be arranged right from the cottage! Great shopping at the Fingerlakes outlet mall, and the new casino event center is 7 miles north. Lots of sightseeing in the area, including Taughannock Falls. Destinations such as Ithaca, Geneva, Skaneateles, Canandaigua, and Rochester are all in the area. Montezuma wildlife refuge, Corning Glass Museum and Niagara Falls are some of the attractions that can be easily enjoyed in a day.
