About Christina Morse

We enjoyed living year round on the lake in this home from 1996 to 2009. It was absolutely wonderful. We have been blessed to now use our large home as a rental for others to create vacation memories.

We are local people and are devoted to assure reserved renters have their summer vacation as planned for the summer or off-season.

We are lifelong residence of Central New York State and find Cayuga one of the best lakes in the area.

Christina Morse purchased this house in 1994

Overall the house was great! Rooms served us well and did not hear noise even with a full house of people. We were slightly disappointed with the beach area and boat launch - we were not able to launch either the boat or the jet ski from the property. It also would be nice if there was a ladder connected to one of the docks to make getting in and out of the water easier. We used the boat lifts, although slightly rusty (and full of spiders!) we did get them to work. House needs some updating, but was in good shape otherwise. Better instructions on where to find some of the supplies (garbage bags/toilet tissue/soap) would be helpful too! Owner was extremely helpful and answered all questions promptly via text.

Owner's Response: These renters were fabulous guests. They left the house in a very nice condition and we gave them 5-stars. In response: the home has a walk in area to the lake. We have chosen not to have a ladder from the dock as they can be dangerous. The walk in area should allow a launch of small watercraft, however, you need 4-wheel drive. This year the lake is very high and has been stormy. In addition, there is a NY State marina to launch boats: 3.5 miles from the house. We try to supply start up items, such as several garbage bags for the kitchen, paper towels, spices, laundry soap and softener, much of the other supplies are items left by previous travelers. We continue to update the home. In 2016: new beds (king and queen), new dryer, and new refrigerator for the main house. This year, 2017, We started staining the deck, however due to rain, this project is on hold for now, repaired the hoist on the north side with new boards, parts and carpet, inside: we painted all the bedrooms, renovated the upstairs bathroom, updated the dishwasher, replacement high efficiency washing machine, couch (sectional pull out sleeper), and area carpets. Future, in 2018 we plan to complete the staining of the decks and docks, update the upstairs hallway carpet and stove. We strive to make your stay comfortable and affordable, while updating on a schedule. Thank you for your review.

Great views, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this beautiful and unique home...plenty of space for all staying and to entertain guests. We stayed over Christmas as there were 8 of us and just too many to be accommodated by family in the area. The views are breath-taking and the home very comfortable. We are hoping to be able to stay during the summer sometime and take full advantage of the water/lake, paddleboats, etc.

Beautiful Home right on Cayuga lake.

  • 5 of 5

My family takes a trip to the Finger lakes each year as a tradition to kick off the holiday season. Some years we do the Deck the Halls wine tour on Seneca lake and some years the Shopping Spree trip on Cayuga lake. This year we chose the Cayuga wine tour and stayed at this home. The house makes you feel right at home from the minute that you walk in the front door and notice the large Family room with the inviting fireplace to the large outside decks and lake front access. The large kitchen and bedrooms are perfect for a large family or group's stay(there were 13 of us). There are beautiful lake views from almost every room in the house. The house was very cleaned and well maintained. The home owner was very nice and made herself available whenever needed. I would and have recommended this property to friends. We really enjoyed this wonderful house and will be returning in the near future.

There were 5 couples staying for the weekend. There was plenty of living room, and the kitchen allowed many cooks in the kitchen! No problem sharing bathrooms either. Enough out door seating for all.

Would have given it 5 stars but too much bird poop on the dock, Maybe a longer hose available to wash it off.

Ample room , great spot for multi-generational family group.

  • 3 of 5

We had a great time, great weather. The house afforded us plenty of room for our multi-generational family. Deck was great for barbeques and entertaining guests. Kids from 6-15 loved fishing off decks, paddle -boating, swimming.
