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! My Husband and I called our realtor and asked if we could look at the house on 46 Elm st. ASAP. After 2 trips through the entire house and land, We knew this was the house for us, Despite the plaster peeling and falling off every single room in the house. My husband, Jeff is a carpenter among many other traits of building or renovating homes. 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 our very large house, 'The Baldwin House' We decided to offer our 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Barrie,

Oh My! What a lovely home & gardens you have created here. We enjoyed every nook and cranny- especially the artistic, creative, lovely touches.

Thank you for having us. The pool was such a delight in the heat- & the grandchildren a ball. My husband and I repeated our wedding vows of 40 years ago with our children in a special little ceremony under the gazebo. Lots of photos and memories!! Many many thanks! We will be back to rent the Baldwin House again, soon.

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.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Awesome Vacation Experience

  • 5 of 5

The Baldwin House was even better than we anticipated. Very clean and well-stocked. Even more spacious and well-laid out than the pictures showed, it worked really well for our three-family group. We loved the plentiful indoor and outdoor dining space. The pool was awesome, very clean and with great comfortable seating around it. The large yard was great for the kids to play wiffle ball and just run around. Being an easy walkable distance from a farmer's market, coffee shop, cafes, etc. was really super. The location of the house was so central to everything we did, a winery, 3 state parks for hiking, swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding. Our favorite day was spent at Taughannock State Park which is a 5 minute drive from the house. Barrie was an exceptionally responsive property owner. Trumansburg was so safe and friendly, just a great place for a family vacation.

Terrific Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great home that suited the needs for all 11 of us! Well equipped and beautifully furnished. After a long day of fun outdoors, it was a pleasure coming back to Baldwin House to relax and unwind. The spacious living room was a definite plus and the modern kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals. In addition, the owners proved that they were just a phone call or quick email away when we had questions. We would highly recommend Baldwin House!

There is nothing this house doesn't have!

  • 5 of 5

We were 8 women of a certain age who travel every year and always rent great houses. Baldwin House surpassed all of our expectations and had absolutely anything you would need for a great weekend. The kitchen was the best appointed ever, there was no tool or dish or glass or pan that wasn't provided. And all top of the line. I came home and wanted to trash all of my appliances and replace them with those from the Baldwin House. We loved it and our time in Trumansburg.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at the Baldwin House. It was the perfect space for my partner and I to get ready for our wedding with a group of our friends. Everything was just as we anticipated in the house. Communicating with Barrie was easy. The house was incredible. Thank you!

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).
