From Summer '08: Hi Carolyn, Just wanted to say thank you! We had a great Ithaca visit. Your house is very comfortable, well stocked and in a great location. Also, thank you so much for replacing the table [broken by previous week tenant]......breakfasts on the deck watching the ducks was so peaceful!!!
Here is a thank-you card I received in the mail: 'Dear Carolyn. I wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our vacation week at your lakehouse in Ithaca. It is such a beautiful house and has all the comforts of home -- PLUS that gorgeous lake. We liked the convenient location, too It is so close to downtown Ithaca and is also close to our daughter's home on ______ Road. Thank you for sharing it with us. Thank you, too for the prompt return of our security deposit. Sincerely, M.K.'
Pet Policy: Not many upscale places allow pets. We do because we love our dogs and they love to travel with us. This is a great place for dog, not only because they can go swimming, but because the deck and grass are all fenced in. You can let the dog out from the kitchen without even leaving the house. You must clean up after your pet, of course. We charge only a $30 fee for dogs that we spend on end of the year professional carpet cleaners.
House is professionally cleaned between tenants. Tenants are asked to bring up and tag garbage on Tuesday evenings. (Tags provided). Tenants are asked to leave the house 'broom clean.'
Who Can Rent:
House is available to one or two families but no more than 2 sets of unrelated persons (one family, two families, 2 friends, one couple, etc). It is a quite area and is not appropriate for loud/late night parties.
Please note, CU graduation 2014 is booked but we have another non-lake house available. Please inquire.
