4-BEDROOM, 2-BATH FAMILY COTTAGE BY TAUGHANNOCK STATE PARK

Trumansburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Retreat to this lovely cottage and grounds we call 'The Cottage at Taughannock,' ideal for a relaxed family vacation or small group retreat. Only eight miles from Ithaca and sharing a 2000 ft border with Taughannock State Park, The Cottage at Taughannock offers both indoor and outdoor spaces for you to enjoy.

Prepare meals in the comfortable kitchen and dine in the “garden room”--or grill and dine on the adjacent patio. Bicycle 4/10 of a mile to the beach at Taughannock State Park for a refreshing dip in Cayuga Lake, or to enjoy the many excellent hiking trails. In the evening, sing around the fire pit or gather in the cozy living room to play board games or watch a movie next to the fireplace.

The cottage sleeps 7 people. The master bedroom, the yellow room and the upstairs larger room each contain queen beds. Upstairs, also, is a smaller room with a twin-sized bed. To accommodate up to three more people (10 total), we have a queen and a twin-sized air beds. Linens and towels are provided.

The cottage is pleasantly furnished with period pieces and textiles. The kitchen is equipped with pots, pans & utensils for meal prep, as well as a dishwasher and a commercial-sized stove.

Why Ann and Chad Hoover chose Trumansburg

We knew the moment we walked on the property that our four-year search was over....we found the perfect place. It has been such fun making it our own.

Nice vacation spot for two small families

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time staying at this house by Taughannock State Park. All the other comments on here are correct, but I wanted to add a few things that I would have liked to have known prior to staying here.

1. The house is very close to the road. The main photo on the site here is taken right from the edge of the driveway and Route 89. For some reason I was expecting this to be a quiet spot, set back from the road, but if you are there in the summer, prepare for traffic noise, trucks, motorcycles, etc. It was loud. Also, despite only being 4/10 of a mile from the State Park, due to the speed of the traffic and shoulder width, walking there seems a bit foolhardy.

2. At least half of the windows downstairs don't open either due to them being built that way, or simply being broken. It wasn't possible to get a cross breeze, so it's a bit warm in the house. It would have been nice to have a few more fans available. There are three "vornado-style" plus a very small desk fan.

Besides that, it's very well equipped, the beds are VERY comfortable and it is a great location for getting to Ithaca/Taughannock, etc. While I'm not sure we'd stay here again, it is definitely worth a look. The owners were great, and even turned us on to some Chanterelles in the backyard!

Unique vacation or weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cottage/house is fantastic. We have stayed several times, and each return visit is even better than before! It is furnished very nicely, and the combination of antiques, furniture and appliances gives the house a beautiful rustic feel. It is huge and could easily sleep ten people although 5-6 would be ideal. Outside, the owners have carefully cultivated the existing flowers, blooming shrubs and walkways to create a very nice front and backyard area. Large windows look out over these gardens. There is even a small stream running through part of the property. Multiple full sized bathrooms allow for larger groups and the kitchen has newer appliances in excellent condition. There is a newer looking washer and dryer on site. We also enjoyed using the outdoor grill and fire pit in the evenings - the owners have wood available. Perhaps one of the best things is location to the park, hiking trails, the Taughannock Falls and Cayuga Lake public beach area very close by. And the Glenwood Pines -famous for specialty burgers and oversized sandwiches - is only 2 miles away. The Taughannock Inn has an upscale dining area with high end menu options, and is less than a mile away. We enjoyed exploring the winery trail and visiting farms in July for outstanding blueberry picking nearby. Opportunities for public events at nearby Cornell University, and diversity of restaurants in the Ithaca area are a plus. This has to be one of the nicest housing opportunities near Cornell and in the Finger Lakes region. We have had friends visit during our stays and they all comment on how much nicer this cottage/house is compared to their places. A true jewel, and the owners are accommodating, very nice people who obviously have put a lot of work into decorating and maintaining the high quality of this property. It is worth the 9 hour drive from Ohio to use this getaway as a place to relax and recharge, but also to get out and see some unique waterfalls and wildlife in a wooded area.

Wonderful cabin - great area

  • 5 of 5
Stayed in the cabin for 3 nights and then extended for a fourth one.
The cabin is spacious (we were 3 adults + 3 small kids) and equipped with anything you might need - linen, towels, kitchen utensils, games... and much more. The yard in the back is beautiful and has a stream flowing next to it.
The owners were very friendly and all communications and payments passed very smoothly.

The area itself has lots to offer in sense of hiking and city attractions (hence the fourth night), although we could have just as we'll spent full days in the cabin.

We will certainly stay over again.

Vacation home near state park near Cayuga Lake

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is an old fashioned vacation home suitable for year-round stays, very close to Taughnock State Park so perfect for families. The grounds are lovely with plenty of yard arwa to play outdoor games. The interior is roomy and very sweetly decorated. The owners are available if you have any questions.

The weather in the area is usually comfortable in the summer with cool nights but if there is a heat surge in mid-summer, plan on having ceiling fans but no AC.

Owner's Response: Dear Molly,
Thank you for your review and your compliments on the cottage. As far as the weather, I wish you could have enjoyed the nearly ideal days here of late, instead of the heat wave. I hope you took full advantage of the lake to cool off!

All the best,
Ann

Spacious, airy house near Lake Cayuga

  • 5 of 5
The Cottage at Taughannock met all our needs, and more. The large, fully equipped kitchen was great for preparing meals; the patio afforded outdoor cooking and gathering. The downstairs rooms were cool even during a heat wave. The upstairs rooms are great for kids. We also took advantage of the ample media opportunities (TV with hook ups; easy WiFi). You can walk to Taughannock State Park from the house; at the park, there is supervised swimming, picnic options, and a gorgeous walk to the base of Taughannock Falls. You do have to drive if you want to get supplies or seek urban amenities, but Ithaca is a close and easy drive, and nearby Trumunsberg is unexpectedly charming. Wegmans has everything you could imagine in terms of foods both prepared and for your own cooking pleasure.
