This vacation property has a very large patio overlooking the lake with a fireplace and a hot tub which provide a wonderful night-time place to relax.

The maximum occupancy is 4. Front-loading washing machine and dishwasher included.

  • Long-term Renters Welcome

About Elena Collinsworth

I moved to Ithaca to attend veterinary school where I met my husband at a mutual friends 4th of July party. He was a lecturer for ROTC at Cornell, and we both since have been relocated to Virginia. We really loved Ithaca, and hope to return someday. Many hours were spent in the yellow cottage with friends and family, and my best friend/sister from another mother was my roommate. The cottage was restored with love and care, and I put in many hours of work on the house myself.

Elena Collinsworth purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Elena Collinsworth chose Ithaca

I fell in love with the property and the character of the cottage immediately. Many people had passed it over because it needed TLC. I think you will also fall in love with the uniqueness and surroundings of this little cottage. I added a hot tub in 2011, and many hours were passed under the stars talking with friends and enjoying the twinkling lights on the other side of the lake through the trees.

Perfect in every way!

My husband and I stayed in the cottage while visiting family in the area. The location was exceptional in that it was very convenient to access the Ithaca area, yet felt very remote and private at the same time. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and well decorated.

Adorable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was amazing. We stayed here for a long weekend, and I was sorry to go. The owner has put a lot of work into this cottage and it shows. From the interior decorating to the amenities provided, everything was great. Thank you for a great stay. We enjoyed our time there. I hope to visit again!

Charming Cottage & Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Perfect retreat from New York City for me, my husband and our cat. Charming, historic exterior with a clean, modern interior. Beds were comfortable and the shower pressure was good (both are deal breakers when it comes to a nice rental). We loved spending time in the kitchen and on the porch. Great location surrounded by trees, but very close to Ithaca. Elena was excellent with communication and is very open to suggestions. We did not get a chance to use the outdoor features or go to the lake, but plan to when we return this fall.

Great!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for a family of four plus our dog!

- great location for the price

- owner is very responsive to email questions. allowed us to check out late to accommodate our young kids.

- loved that the linens are included in this rental. less stuff to pack, saves tons of room in the car.

- house was clean. But remember this is a lake house, so a couple spiders or bugs are to be expected.

- there is no air conditioning , but we were fine during our August visit.

- the walk down to the lake isn't ideal for toddlers, but my husband and dog loved it. We accessed the lake from several other parks for swimming instead.

The cottage is located in a spot that I think is great for access to everything the Fingerlakes have to offer. It is only a couple of minutes away from the mall and the grocery store along with plenty of restaurants on Triphammer road. It also abuts the most historic neighborhood of Cayuga Heights where stately mansions nestle along the road with cliff views of all of Ithaca. Yet the cottage is fairly secluded, and surrounded by forests on a very quiet street. If you go up East Shore drive you will get to the vineyards along the East side of the lake and the cute little town of Aurora where the McKenzie-Childs farm is located (this is a very nice drive and visit to the founding location of this high-end whimsical furniture and home décor company). If you drive in the other direction there is an area for swimming at the Cornell sailing school that is only a couple of minutes down the road toward Ithaca. You can rent kayaks at Puddledockers, which is about ten minutes from the cottage near Meadow street. The commons is the boutique shopping pedestrian mall of Ithaca with plenty of great restaurants, and it is in the center of downtown, and also only ten minutes from the cottage. A thirty minute drive will take you to the many wineries on the West side of the lake and the quaint village of Trumansburg with plenty of antique shopping along the way. Robert H. Treman State Park is a great place to hike the gorges, and it is about fifteen minutes away from the cottage off of Meadow st. Ithaca Brewery is near to Treman Park, and it offers many nationally known micro-brews along with great locally-sourced food. The iconic Ithaca Falls are less than ten minutes away from the cottage (just drive down East Shore drive and head straight past Ithaca High School and the falls are on the left). Stewart Park is about five minutes away, which is the home to many festivals in Ithaca (Including Beerfest and the Scottish festival) and Stewart Park also has outdoor BBQ with beau
