About Julie

We live next door, down the same driveway. We have owned this property for over 12 years, and have been renting by the week during the summer for 7 years. As we live on the lake to enjoy the summer months, we will be nearby to address any issues that may arise.

Julie purchased this house in 2002

What makes this house unique

Our rental property features a large lawn on the beach. This is a very rare find, especially so close to Ithaca. Enjoy lawn games and a large fire pit. From the dock, you have a great view of Cornell University and Ithaca College. There is plenty of parking to accommodate a number of cars without issue.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time. 3 families all managed to squeeze in just fine! Canoeing was fun - and managed to hike in several of the parks. As former Cornellians we really appreciated getting to know the West Side of the lake!

Clean and Spacious

  • 4 of 5

Tucked away on the water, the house was clean and spacious enough for 5 of us. Great views. We came from Oregon so we couldn't bring anything but we found we didn't need it except for basic groceries...kitchen was stocked with all the basic pots and pans, cleaning supplies and there were fresh sheets and towels for all bedrooms.

The house is clearly a second home but nice and clean. It was a little musty, but nothing that a few candles couldn't overcome.

House is conveniently located, but hard to find if you arrive after dark.

Perfect!

The home was great! We stayed here with 9 people and it was comfortable and perfect for a reunion weekend. The house is in a beautiful location and we had a great time. Highly recommend.

West Shore Lake House

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay for Ithaca College Graduation. Close to town and campus. The view of the lake was excellent and we had lots of fun at the fire pit. House was clean upon arrival with all the necessary provisions. Even included charcoal for the BBQ grill.

Driveway and stairs are very steep but were not a problem for us.

Would definitely stay again when we are in the area.

Great lake house!

  • 4 of 5

Rented house for Cornell graduation weekend 2012. Family loved the lake house location -- close to town and Cornell campus -- but also far enough from the bustle and chaos to enjoy the weekend together. My family thoroughly enjoyed being able to relax with a fire down by the lake some night and/or sit around the large dining room table with a great view of the lake on other nights. Amenities with the house were plentiful and even allowed us to have a nice, big grill out. Home-owner lives in adjacent house and was great at responding to questions and inquiries. House is great for families or small groups.

Pros:

House was clean and actually larger than expected upon arrival. Kitchen and dining area comfortably fit 10 or more. Kitchen was also fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans, and all necessary cooking utensils. House included all necessary linens -- bedding, bath towels, kitchen towels, and rags. Parking for at least 5 vehicles, though be warned that the driveway is steep and could be difficult for manual vehicles to maneuver. Great location -- just minutes from Cass Park & downtown Ithaca to the south and wineries & Taughannock Falls to the north. WiFi worked great! And while we didn't have time, dock had several canoes just waiting to be used -- ask owner for PPEs.

Possible Cons to Consider -- though realize they are minor:

Only 8 beds and a couch - if you have more than 9 people, you'd probably need to contact owner and make arrangements for more sleeping units. House is 3-stories tall, but you only have access to the top 2 floors -- a permanent resident lives in a separate apartment on the bottom floor. While this wasn't a problem for us, it was definitely a surprise when we accidentally played peeping-tom on the resident living below. Cable was out while we were there, but should be up and running again soon. Also please heed the owner's warning about stairs -- if you can't handle going up and down a few stairs to get to your car or the lake, you'll probably want to consider some place else.

All in all, I would happily recommend the lake house to families or small groups wanting a relaxing week/weekend!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay for Cornell Graduation. Thanks for taking the time to leave a detailed review. Beds - We had just removed a futon, and it has been replaced. So, there is a place to sleep on the main floor. Sorry about the cable, its back on now. Regarding the efficiency apt - one individual does live there. Its doubtful you'd see or hear him. He's very respectful of the weekly renters.
