About Ian Gillespie

Currently the property is owned by Janet (Ithaca), Tom (NC) and Ian Gillespie (CO). Each of us grew up in Ithaca and have that unique tie to the area. Our father taught at Cornell for 40 years. Here we are in the cabin pre-renovation - circa 2010.

Ian Gillespie purchased this cabin in 1965

Why Ian Gillespie chose Lansing

Our parents purchased the modest cottage in 1965. In 2011, to honor their memory and the good times we've had here, we decided to renovate and upgrade the facility into it's present condition. We hope you will come visit and enjoy it as much as we have.

What makes this cabin unique

160 feet of lake front make this property unique. Enjoy sweeping views of the lake from inside the cabin. When you're not on the lake there's never a shortage of things to do here! Take a weekend trip to the amazing Ithaca Farmers Market. Hike at Buttermilk Falls, Robert Treman and Taughannock Falls State Parks. Check out Cornell University and Cornell Plantations. Birders will want to visit Sapsucker Woods and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Art lovers unite at the Johnson Museum of Art. Visit at least one of the 15 wineries, one cidery, one meadery, and four distilleries along the first organized, longest running Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. Or just relax on 160 feet of lakefront.

Wonderful Holiday Getaway.

  • 5 of 5
Cozy little cabin overlooking the water. Decorated with style with detail for comfort. Close to all that we hold dear. Spent Christmas morning with the Grandbabies in Groton and enjoyed the comforts of our "Own Getaway Home" at night. Looking forward to renting from your family in the future.

Lovely Unique Spot

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our week at the Gillespie Cottage. The main room, with glass wall overlooking Lake Cayuga was beautiful. The kitchen was excellent and extremely well equipped. We enjoyed walks along the road and railroad (not in use) tracks and sitting on the dock on the water. The bedrooms are a bit small, but comfortable and the deck was a relaxing place to sit before dinner. Easy drive down to restaurants and shops in Ithaca

Perfect weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cottage over Thanksgiving weekend . We were very pleased with the cottage , it was just as advertised. We prepared several meals there and had everything we needed on hand. The beds were comfortable also.
The location of the cottage was fairly close to everything we wanted to do .
I would love to come back in warmer months to enjoy the deck and dock area.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Great cottage. Property was clean and well maintained. The owner answered all questions and was very nice to speak with. Would recommend friends and family to stay. If and when I visit Ithaca again this will be the only property that I will consider. It exceeded my expectations in all areas.

Tranquil and accommodating

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is right on Lake Cayuga, with a beautiful view. It is very well designed -simple, yet attractive with all one needs for comfort - lots of towels & blankets, all basic cooking equipment, cable TV, etc. We spent more time than anticipated at the house - inside & out - because it was so inviting and comfortable We were very lucky to have warn & sunny weather for our early October stay. The neighborhood is quiet - good place for walking the dog, who also very much enjoyed his stay. It is a 30 minute drive to Ithaca and just a few miles (heading north) to local wineries. We plan to return next year.

So fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
One of the best vacations I've ever had (and maybe the best vacation rental)! This house is so gorgeous, and the area is so peaceful! The big deck was absolutely perfect for enjoying a glass of wine while looking out over the lake. We lucked out with beautiful weather the week after labor day - great swimming, fishing, hiking, and sitting out by the fire at night - weather. My family and I had planned on eating out and exploring the near by towns but ended up spending every night in because the house was just too good to leave! We did enjoy a morning in nearby Ithaca, a convenient 10-15 min drive away. I would come back to this cottage again and again. Thanks to Ian for a fabulous get-away!

Cottage onCayuga Lake - 165 ft. of beachfront/dock
Car: necessary

This charming cottage is located on the east side of Cayuga Lake in the finger lakes region of upstate, NY. Beyond the waterfront activities that the cabin provides, it is located close to picturesque Ithaca, NY, home to Cornell University and Ithaca College. Hike one of the many trails that climb alongside the gorges that make this area unique. Grab your camera and head to Buttermilk Falls, Robert Treman or Taughannock Falls State Parks, they're all just a short drive. Add a weekend trip to the amazing Ithaca Farmer's Market to your must-do list, afterwards take a stroll down the Ithaca Commons which features many unique shops and restaurants. Don't forget to check out Cornell University and Cornell Plantations. Sapsucker Woods and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology are guaranteed to delight birders of all ages. Art lovers unite at the Johnson Museum of Art. Last but not least, visit at least one of the fifteen wineries, one cidery, one meadery, and four distilleries along the first organized, longest running Cayuga Lake Wine Trail.
