Overview

Romulus Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 1 BA, Sleeps 8.

Beautifully remodeled 3 bedroom summer home on the waters edge of Cayuga Lake. All aspects of our home were renovated in 2009. New bedrooms, new kitchen, new bathroom, pine tonge and groove ceilings throughout, new flooring, new fireplace, new 10' x 23' deck overlooking the lake.

The beach is very family friendly. A gentle slope at the shore provides great swimming. Fishing off the dock is a must. Two kayaks, tubes, and life jackets are provided.

We are located in the HEART of the FINGER LAKES WINE TRAIL. Many wineries and bistro's are located only minutes away from our door.

Sleeps 8. Bedroom one has a Queen size bed. Bedroom 2 has 2 twin beds, bedroom 3 three has one Queen bed and living room has a Queen sleeper couch. Enjoy the view of the lake from our huge deck overlooking the beach area. Our cottage is situated right on the shore; you can swim or fish right off the 50 foot dock. We are located on a quiet, dead-end street which makes it great for families.

Cayuga Wine Trail: Cayuga Lake is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, and the the Cayuga Wine Trail. Wineries within a 10 minute car ride.

There are many more wineries within a 15 minute drive along the Finger Lakes Wine trail.

Travel a few more miles and you can expand your wine tour to include the entire Finger Lakes Wine Trail. The Wine Trails of the Finger Lakes feature great wine testing, bistros, restaurants and live entertainment.

Cayuga Lake- great swimming and fishing: We are located on the western shore of Cayuga Lake, the Queen of the Finger Lakes. Cayuga Lake is a quiet, 40-mile long lake with little boat traffic, but plenty of ducks, loons, and fish. Our shore is great for swimming. Walk into the water along the gentle slope of the shore or just jump right in off our 54 foot dock.

Cayuga Lake is notable for clean clear water that can be enjoyed by recreational boaters (skiing, tubing...) and fisherman alike.

We provide kayaks to get out on and fully enjoy the water of Cayuga Lake.

Nature walks: Ithaca is "Gorges.'' There are many waterfalls and gorges to explore in the Cayuga Lake and Ithaca area.

Wonderful Spring Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this cottage (6 adults). It exceeded expectations, from the fully stocked kitchen for cooking, to the location (beautiful morning views of the sun rising over the water and closely located to so many great wineries), to the cleanliness and homey feel of the cottage. We enjoyed touring wineries, hiking Taughannock Falls, paddle boating, cooking, and relaxing on the dock. Carol is an exceptional host (greeting us with local wine, cheese, & crackers) and we truly appreciated her hospitality! We are looking forward to finding time to return!

This place is like a 'Lil Secret'!! We cant say enough of this quaint cottage. Its clean, very well maintained & within distance to many of the womderful wineries the Cayuga has to offer!! After hiking picturesque Watkins Glen enjoying the foliage, we visited the wineries, then chilled on the pier.

The tranquillity of kayaking on Cayuga is a must. This was our first trip & plan on making this a yearly Memory!! You definitely won't be disappointed ..♡♡

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We highly enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It is very well maintained and clean with the most beautiful views. The pictures don't do it justice. It was also convenient for us to attend Cornell graduation.

Relaxing and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying in this house and are still impressed with how quiet, relaxing and beautiful it was. Description was spot on and we would highly recommend it. Our first year we brought an infant and toddler and the place was suitable for children. We absolutely love it here!!!

Like a Dream come true !

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't believe how lucky we were to find such a beautiful place. The cottage was so much more than we expected. Clean, and tasteful, and most welcoming. The view from inside and out unbeatable, better than any dream possible. The owners, accessible, and on spot with their "information book" provided for guests. Planning next trip on availability of this cottage.

Cayuga Lake State Park

We are located on the edge of the western shore of Cayuga lake, 20 miles south of historic Seneca Falls, and 25 miles north of 'gorgeous' Ithaca, NY, where there are spectacular hiking trails among the gorges. The cottage itself has very few steps to the shore and is on a quiet dead end street. Launch your boat at Dean's Cove NYS boat launch which is located just one mile north of our cottage.

We are nestled in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Trail. Far removed from the bustling streets of the city, wine lovers will find many of the most treasured winery destinations only a few minutes drive from our location.

You can also enjoy hiking the many gorges of Ithaca. Our favorite is Taughannock Falls Gorge. The drop of the falls is an incredible 215 feet (66 meters) , and is one of the highest east of the Rocky Mountains.

Your local shopping experience may include a visit to the many Amish shops in the area or a trip to the local Senaca Outlet mall or Bass Pro Outlet

Other Activities: Amish Crafts, wine tours, wineries, hiking, shopping, farm tours, golf

Golf: There are many golf options around the Cayuga Lake area. Leading the way is Seneca Falls Country Club, 12 miles to the north on Route 89. SFCC is a semi private club that is open to the public weekdays and weekends.

Also to the south on the Cornell Campus is one to the first Robert Trent Jones courses in the world. Jones was a 1930 graduate of Cornell University and designed this on campus course. Truly a unique golfing opportunity.
