Our family has been vacationing here for almost one hundred years. We own the cottage next door for our own use. When this property became available, we jumped at the chance to own it. Our family is scattered across the country now, but our hearts bring us back here.

Martha Congleton purchased this house in 2006

This property is one of the nicest on Cayuga Lake because of the gradually increasing water depth. The front lawn is large and invites children to play and adults to relax while contemplating life on the water. One of our favorite quotes is 'If you are lucky enough to be at the lake, you are lucky enough.'

Our property sits on the edge of the picturesque Village of Aurora and about thirty minutes from Ithaca-home of Cornell University and Ithaca College. We enjoy shopping at the Ithaca Farmers' Market and sampling the international cuisine there.

Great Family Vacation!

We had never rented this property before, so there's always a bit of trepidation, but we were delighted. The place is nicely appointed inside and can easily sleep 8-10 people, as long as a few don't mind being in bunk beds. The location is ideal for watching sunsets on the lake each night, and since our parents are elderly, being level with the water was perfect. (No stairs!) We are hoping to stay for a week again next summer. There are only two things that weren't to our liking. The week we stayed was unusually hot, and there is no air conditioning. Also, the water isn't potable, so you have to be careful about using bottled water for everything. Aside from that, though, it's a great place to spend a summer vacation!

Owner's Response: We are glad you will be coming back! We have been working diligently with the Village of Aurora for over five years to get potable water to our house. We do provide as much drinking water as a renter needs in order to accommodate for this deficit. Hopefully we will get potable water for the next rental season.

Best Lakefront Property on East Cayuga Lake

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 3, 2013

Great! - relaxing, spacious, clean, well maintained, and private rental property ON the Lake. Best lake front footage and within a short bicycle ride to town. We enjoyed the peace and solitude of nature (rabbits and a Bald Eagle are sighted daily!) and the lake. We had ample room for Grandmas (87 and 84 years old!), adult children, their partners, and ourselves. The pictures are deceiving as this home and property is far more beautiful and spacious than it appears in the pictures. As a busy doctor in "real" life, I required a place to enjoy my family, relax, eat at home, and be soothed by the beauty of the water. I read, rested, painted, rode my bike, and did NOT want to go home. The owners are friendly and ready to answer any questions. I received my deposit back immediately and am anxious to resubmit it for next year! I would recommend this rental to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced 5* summer rental. You will definitely not be disappointed and will surely leave as we did - with many fond and pleasant thoughts of a week spent on Cayuga Lake - so many happy memories! drb

Great place for a family vacation

My family and I have stayed at the Brooks Place for a number of years for a week each summer. It is a great location in Aurora, and has a nice flat lot (no steps down to the lake). The cottage is wonderfully appointed and you will find all you need in the kitchen. The owners have always been very responsive. You can't go wrong with the Brooks Place. Enjoy!
