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 New York

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing views on Cayuga Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the view on Cayuga Lake! Watching the sunrise was breath taking for us all! The home is quite comfortable for many people, spacious and situated amid the Cayuga Lake Wineries and not far from Seneca Wineries as well! The guys wanted to golf and there was a course just 10 minutes away that they loved - Seneca Lakes Golf Club! Thank you for sharing your special home with us and we will be back!

Spacious home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful site on the lake, easily accessible to winery trail and other area sites. Spacious, comfortable, and new. Instructions on recycling not clear to out-of-state visitors, but owners were easily accessible for clarification. Cows across the road could be viewed as charming or ... "earthy".

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with a LOT of room. We enjoyed sitting on the decks looking at the lake and boating and fishing from the dock. All four of our grandkids, ages 2-6 caught fish and were thrilled. The cows out front across the road where also fun to watch. The owners were nice and a pleasure to do business with.

Great getaway location and view of the lake.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend. The house is large and roomy, clean and appointed with the necessities. It's proximity to wineries is great. My high kids fished off the dock and caught quite a few. It is a very relaxing place. We were visiting the area due a graduation in Ithaca which kept us away from the home most days and could not take full advantage of the home for a typical lake weekend but it's ready to serve in a swim/grill/hangout fashion if that's what you want. One notable: if you are a light sleeper, the lower level rooms are susceptible to a loud humming/whining coming from the furnace/water heater room which does not have a door. We had some family that never heard it and others that struggled sleeping. if we weren't from the Midwest, we would take advantage of this great rental on a regular basis.
