About the owner: The shoreline of Cayuga Lake is my home. I grew up in Florida, vacationing in Ithaca from 1976 every summer. When I retired I was able to purchase this original old treasure.

Time here has inspired two of my children to choose Cornell for their education.

Fire pits, smoors on the lake, and hot fudge sundries from Purity Ice Cream get you through those growth moments of life.

We are spoiled with, air conditioning, and city water (all the luxuries not common to the lake cottages of our years as a tenant, each summer).

Quiet surrounds us, as in a bubble, while outdoor grilling.

When reading in the nook on the second floor time stands still.

I love to sleep downstairs at night, while my kids are all snuggled upstairs playing cards, giggling with cousins and friends. There is always room for one more at this lake house.

We are connected, as if in a tree house, to all that is mother nature.

It is difficult to be humble about this ages of timeless treasured memories, but it is easy to be a steward of this precious land.

Loretta Timm-Gardner purchased this house in 2005

Why the Owner Chose Ithaca:

Travelers report to me about their stay, that it had been a gift to be here, whether for a family reunion, a single writer, a bride and groom, or a lone musician. All seem to rest, play, learn and a few report that magic happened.

The Unique Benefits at this House:

There is a mother Eagle who has had her nest full of new little babies for 7 years now from the same high nest in a tree on the North property line, over the gorge. Every year, like the clock work of Spring, she never seems to tire, she never ages, she soars the shore, over the lake, with grace and strength. Each year, her precious eaglets hatch and after finding their own wings, they take flight. She then sends them off.....then does it all over again in a year. A glimpse of her is renewal…where does she get that from? Here…in Ithaca, just like I do. I wish the same for you.
