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, canoes, paddle boat 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.
Don and I Live in Cortland, NY. Don just retired from his Business Reed's Seeds in Cortland and is looking to enjoy retirement. I've been retired for several years and happy to have Don finally join me. We have 3 children and 3 Grandchildren. all on the West Coast Vegas, Oregon and California.
Carol Reed purchased this cottage in 2015
Don and I have been renting this property for 6 years. When we first walked in to preview for rental we asked the owner if it was for sale. It was not but we did ask for first refusal to buy when the owners were ready. October 2015 we received an e-mail asking if we were ready. We love this cottage and everyone who has stayed here enjoys it also and has kept it up like it was their own and this makes it easy to have wonderful renters and we do feel comfortable with our friends renting.
The view of the lake is just beautiful from our wrap around porch and of course the sunsets are beautiful.
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 ..♡♡
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.
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!!!
Very nice location and perfect for my wife and I to enjoy the wineries and great views of the lake . Would be a wonderful location for families to use during the summer months .
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.
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.
