About Lisa Harrington

We purchased Shady Beach in the Fall of 2016 for our family of five to have a lakeside getaway to enjoy during each of the beautiful seasons on Cayuga lake. Our hope is that by offering our special place to others, we'll be able to keep building and improving our lake house for all to relax and enjoy, while helping us support our dreams of retiring lakeside someday.

Why Lisa Harrington chose Fayette

Cayuga Lake has always held a special place in our hearts as our family has spent many years enjoying the Finger Lakes. Cayuga's convenient location to our home base in Airport, NY, makes it ideal for us to retreat quickly to our oasis from our daily hectic life. The setting of the house and how it overlooks the lake, offers a serene atmosphere and breathtaking lake views. The house is right on West Lake Road, which is the route for the Cayuga Wine Trail and 25 wonderful wineries are situated within just a few miles of the house. The kids enjoy pumpkin chucking at Varick Winery in the fall, Winter is a wonderland of beauty and the fireplaces offer a cozy lakeside setting for holidays or just a weekend getaway. And the spring and summer are of course idea to enjoy swimming, boating, relaxing and finding new adventures, such as the area state parks and waterfall. So much to explore.

What makes this house unique

Gorgeous private yet convenient location and upscale house offers all the amenities for a getaway that you can't help but enjoy!

Excellent accommodations

Group of 10 friends that get together a couple times per year for winery tours. This property is ideal for large families, and very well kept. The owners were very helpful and made certain our weekend was comfortable.

Wonderful house. We had a fun time staying here.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house. Plenty of space. The extra kitchen is super convenient. A great beach, feels very private.

Be very careful walking down the stairs. I loved the canoe and paddle boat. The dock was great and provided plenty of space for docking a boat.

Perfect for large groups or family gatherings. On a very quiet part of the lake.

Nice getaway locale on quiet lake lane. Beautiful lake views, even in winter - sunrises in mornings! Nice wood floors on main floor, tiled kitchen. Room enough to spread out to enjoy the company and/or find a quiet spot.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 4 couples getting together for a mini 40th year high school reunion. The house was perfect for our group.....everyone had their own bedroom and there were plenty of bathrooms. Of course we spent most of our time in the kitchen with the great view......we are all foodies so we enjoyed having so much kitchen space to work with. The house has a great dining room with a table for 10......we spent 3 hours at that table reminiscing over fabulous food. The location is excellent for wineries too. The owner is great to work with, very responsive. I highly recommend this house.
