About Dennis Stein

Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I've called Ithaca and the bountiful Finger Lakes region home for the last 25 years. Living in downtown Ithaca, I greatly enjoy the contrast between the vibrant urban downtown and the peaceful, wide-open vistas around the lakes. My co-owner Ed, also a transplant who takes inspiration from the natural beauty of the Finger Lakes region, has lived in downtown Ithaca with his family even longer.

Dennis Stein purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Dennis Stein chose Trumansburg

Twin Pines is a cozy cottage that guests regularly describe as very welcoming.

When the cottage went on the market in 2006, the seller shared that because of the sheer beauty of the view, several potential out-of-area buyers expressed plans to tear down the cottage and replace it with a much larger contemporary structure.

We decided to buy the building so that its simple beauty and great view of the lake could be preserved and enjoyed by vacationers and guests.

What makes this cottage unique

Twin Pines is replete with original artistic details. Some of the furnishings are handmade, and the front door was crafted by Mary Shelley, a local woodworking artist in Ithaca.

I recently stayed at this property for 4 nights with my girlfriend. We were trilled with this cottage. It is perfectly nestled in the woods, right on the lake, atop a bluff. This provide great privacy and amazing views for total relaxation. Also, the owners are great people and really easy to work with. They were very helpful and timely with all inquires. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

Perfect quiet getaway.

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and our yellow lab were looking for a place to relax, have some peace and quiet with some outdoor space for our dog to explore. This cottage was exactly that. This is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location right on the lake tucked away in the woods that isn't too far from some great hiking which was lovely in the fall. Ithaca is also only a 15min drive which is very convenient. There is so much this place has to offer and I only wish we had more time to take advantage of it all. The owners were so friendly and respond very promptly to any questions. We enjoyed ourselves and the dog was able to swim to his hearts content. We would definitely stay again! I would reccomend this to couples and families who are looking for some outdoor recreation.

Wonderful restful unique fingerlakes cottage

  • 5 of 5
With inspiring views that may induce a gentle, enjoyable, vertigo this cottage offers a unique finger lakes experience, The cottage is a tastefully restored old fashioned finger lakes cottage. The location is ideal for exploring the central finger lakes region and the owners Ed and Dennis are available if any need should arise. The beachfront has a distinctive feel and I enjoyed my daily kayak paddles from this launch point. My wife, son, and I had a great experience and I definitely recommend Twin pines as a vacation lodging.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5
Twin Pines is a classic cottage with rustic charm yet included all the modern amenities to make our vacation week very relaxing. The wooded privacy reminded us of the Adirondacks. The master bedroom, sitting room and deck all gave us the feel of being high up in a secluded tree house with wonderful views of the lake. The waterfront was great for swimming, kayaking and reading...with the perfect mix of sun and shade throughout the day. Having a refrigerator in the cabana was a real bonus. The location was great for going on a hike at Taughannock as well as visiting both the Seneca Lake and Cayuga Wine Trails. Owners, Dennis and Ed, were very welcoming and made the rental process easy.

The Perfect Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a wonderful and relaxing week at "Twin Pines" cottage. In fact, I wish we were all still there. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipt with adorable details inside and beautiful views outside. The kids loved the beach front as well as the cabana. It's near so many great places- parks, wineries, farmers markets, and cute restaurants, and the rental process was friendly, efficient, and painless! The owners were very accommodating and were very helpful during the rental process. I would highly recommend staying here. I would love to go again!!

Notes:
Twin Pines offers a number of unique features. Topping the list is that the cottage is directly on Cayuga Lake, which means you can jump into the water off the dock and swim--or, sit on the Twin Pines' deck and relax while enjoying the beautiful view. While very private, the cottage is just 2 miles away from a large supermarket, a great coffee shop and fine restaurants in Trumansburg, NY, 2 miles from the start of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail and near such attractions as the Cayuga Creamery ice cream shop and the Amish Country market. Twin Pine's guests are only 20 minutes away from Wegmans in Ithaca, the region's premiere supermarket, and fine downtown Ithaca restaurants. Nearby must-sees in the area include the Ithaca Farmer's Market, the various specialty shops on the Ithaca Commons, Cornell University, Museum of the Earth, the Sciencenter and the many spectacular waterfalls, gorges and trails that abound in the Ithaca area.
