Why Barrie French chose Cayuga Lake

I moved to Trumansburg as a very young child in 1969.

After moving about for a while between 1980-1993 I decided I wanted to be back in the Ithaca/Trumansburg or surrounding area. I was searching for a home to purchase but wasn't sure in what area. In 1998 I went to visit my mom as I often did, and noticed that The Baldwin's Family House, 2 houses down from the house that I grew up in was for sale. I never was in The Baldwin's home but I always loved how big it was, and the lawn and gardens always looked so perfect! I called my realtor and asked if I could look at the house on 46 Elm st. ASAP. After 2 trips through the entire house and land, I knew this was the house for me, Despite the plaster peeling and falling off every single room in the house. I had always had a sense of design and a way of creating not so nice houses or apartments that I had rented, into very welcoming, comfortable, classy, and of course, always clean homes. After 12 years of renovating the house, 'The Baldwin House' I decided to offer my home to larger groups of people that would be coming to this area for happy occasions such as, vacationing, weddings, College alumni, Cornell and Ithaca College Graduations, and family reunions.

Welcome To The Baldwin House!

We loved our stay at the Baldwin House. There were 8 of us including 4 teenagers. The house is much more beautiful than the pictures and everyone had a very comfortable and lovely place to sleep. The kitchen is fully equipped and has anything you could possibly want. The house has that perfect combination of old world charm and modern updates. We would definitely come back when in Ithaca.

Enjoyable week, great location, spacious home & yard, but lacked routine maintenance.

  • 3 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay. Trumansburg was lovely. Farmer's mkt., State Park, sailed on Cayuga Lake, visited museums, biked the village, quiet & peaceful. The house itself was artfully decorated & fully furnished with plenty of room for our family of 10 to spread out. We enjoyed cooking, dining on patio, swimming in very clean pool. Unfortunately the house had not been opened and aired out prior to our arrival and was extremely musty whenever closed, requiring many window fans, candles and sprays. We were thankful for the many roof windows to help circulate air. Not all listed ammenities were up to par, but we were able to work around them. The owner was available when needed for assistance.

Beautiful home in the heard of Finger Lakes

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Baldwin House for our extended family vacation in August. Jeff and Barrie were so nice and attentive to anything that we needed during our stay. We had ages 5 months to 64 years old and we had plenty of things to do. I felt like we could have stayed another week and still wouldn't have seen everything the area had to offer.

The Baldwin house was absolutely perfect for our party of 15, including 4 children. It was the perfect combination of old character with modern updates where you would want them - bathrooms and kitchen. The entire house was immaculately clean. And the pool was amazing!! Very clean, and larger than expected. The outdoor area was very private but just a few blocks from town. We visited Ithaca, Watkins Glen and the gorgeous swimming hole at Enfield Falls. This spot was the perfect place to have a fews days out and about, and a few lazy days by the house pool. I would HIGHLY recommend this property if you are looking to stay and enjoy the beautiful Finger Lakes!!

Cayuga Lake is part of the Barge Canal System which means you can boat from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Ontario and all the way to Ithaca, Watkins Glen, Geneva, and more. Cayuga Lake is 42 miles long. The widest point is three-and-one-half miles. The deepest spot is 435 feet, so you better wear your life jacket!

Cayuga Lake is wonderful for all those who love wine, boating, fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, sunsets, moonbeams, and rainbows. Fishermen enjoy an over abundance of landlocked salmon, lake, brown, and rainbow trout, pickerel, pike, perch, bass, and smelt (in the spring).

hiking trails, waterfalls, state parks, lakes, golf, many wine trails, night life, art, museums, restaurants, music
