Expansive decking, lush gardens, and a nice, gradual lakefront makes this property a scenic and serene retreat. A large, new hot tub was installed on the north deck last summer.

My husband and I have lived about 10 miles from our cottage since 2001. My husband grew up in Dryden, NY (yes, a townie!) and I fell in love with the water while growing up on Long Island. We are both graduates of Cornell University and we worth together in a family business in Ithaca. Neither of us have found a place that we would like to live more than our beautiful Finger Lakes region.

Catherine Ross purchased this house in 1978

Our lake home has been in our family for almost 4 decades. Throughout that time family members have created and help maintain a vacation destination where people can enjoy each others' company while surrounded by beauty. Once a mostly seasonal cottage, our parents had an expansive addition built in 2000. They lived full time at this wonderful home until they decided to downsize in 2008. At that time my husband and I volunteered to maintain the home. We have lived just 10 miles from our cottage since 2001 and own a long standing business in Ithaca. We are thrilled that the option of offering vacation rentals helps us to keep this very special place in our family. After four years of vacation rental and enjoying countless glowing guest comments, I know many people feel the same way about our home.

This home holds wonderful memories for my family - holidays and summer get-togethers with all the cousins playing in the lake, fishing off the dock, adults relaxing, grilling a great meal to share, enjoying the heavenly sunsets, and making s'mores over a bonfire.

Perfect Spot!

This house was absolutely perfect! Spacious rooms, a large well stocked kitchen. There was room for group gatherings and for people to be on their own - great for a large family or two. Everything was spotless and very nicely decorated. My family is from Ca. and Fla so they are not always inclined to come to upstate NY but with the lake view and the amazing house - we are already plotting a longer stay in the future without the hustle and bustle of a wedding. Making arrangements was also easy and clear. Great Place!

This vacation home is thoughtfully organized and immaculate. We enjoyed the quietness and breathtaking views from every room of the house. Entire house is decorated in very good taste.
Swimming and Kayak ride in the lake is fun.

cool, clean and comfortable lakeside get away

this was ideal for our family weekend, 3 couples could each have their own (huge) bedroom and bath and 4 children (ages 9-19) had theirs too (4 beds, private bath, lots of room to get away from each other). Exquisite landscaping of interest to some of us, lake and spacious dining and kitchen areas appreciated by all.
Lots of stairs not good for young children or the elderly but great for us.

Girls weekend

We rented the lake house for a reunion of sorts for our 40th birthdays. There were 5 of us girls and we were delighted with the lake house on Powers Rd! The bedrooms were huge...and beautiful, filled with light! The kitchen had everything we needed and there were so many options for dining that we ate in a different spot for each meal...one night in the dining room, another meal out on the deck, overlooking the lake...and then nother dinner down on the lower patio right on the water. The house had everything we needed including soft and cozy towels and linens. The kayaks were a real bonus as we were able to explore the lake. Kathy checked in with us to make sure we were comfortable and was accessible by phone for any questions. We had such a wonderful time...we never left the house! We spent the whole day out on the dock and the evenings in the hot tub and on the deck enjoying fantastic Finger Lakes wine.

We all agreed that we will not wait such a long time to get together again and that our next reunion will be at the Lake House!
