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.
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.
The Cottage at Taughannock is 20 acres of woodland and streams--wonderful for exploring and discovering deer trails and hidden waterfalls.
