Welcome to Alilys-on-Cayuga! Our quaint 1930’s cottage will make for a most memorable vacation. Relax & enjoy one of the most breathtaking views of Cayuga Lake.

Have lunch on the beach in the gazebo or bask in the sun on the private dock.
The Unique Benefits of this Cottage:: The peacefulness of the mornings, listening to the world on the lake wake up! The sunsets are amazing whether you are at the picnic table, on the beach, hanging on the deck or eating at the dining room table. Riding bikes up, up, up Nut Ridge Road and then exploring the area on two wheels. Curling up on the daybed with a good book for hours and hours. The beach, the beach, the beach! Cooking up meals at a leisurely pace. Swimming, floating, paddling. Sleeping on the dock in the afternoon sun. A bon fire in the evening...the view, did we say the view!

Hidden Gem does describe this cottage to a T.
The cottage met all of our needs for our three night stay. Well maintained and very clean. There were beautiful views from the deck and dock. We met the caretaker as he was trying to secure his sailboat to the dock. A very nice gentlemen. We would recommend this cottage for anyone who wants privacy and a quaint setting.
Great Lake setting. Cottage was fine.
The location on the lake is beautiful. The description of the property is a bit exaggerated.
It is a cute property but could benefit from some attention in the bathroom and some of the furniture.
The Perfect Lake House
I did a lot of research to find the perfect spot, and when I came across this listing, it seemed like it would be. Once I arrived, I knew that I had made the right decision. You could not ask for a more ideal place to stay: the house is so very comfortable, clean, and wonderfully well-appointed with all the amenities that you need and more. The beach is beautiful--a divine spot to swim and lounge (yes, I stayed in September, and swam every day!). The sunset show every night is heavenly. The house is easy to get to from the main road, and beach access is also good (my mother has some issues with stairs, but she was able to do these, which was great). It's so quiet and serene that you feel like you've really gotten away from it all, and yet you're so close to Ithaca and Aurora that you have the best of both worlds. And Kelli was wonderful to work with. I fell in love with this place so much that I booked the following weekend while I was here! And I definitely intend to be back again!
Cozy lake side getaway!
Want a quintessential lake house experience? This is your place! Cozy home, great layout, just enough space for 4. The sleeping porch was the best- every morning I drank my coffee, listened to the waves, snuggled under a blanket on that day bed. Quiet, easy walk down to the lake, lots of outdoor seating and eating spots. My 9 year old nephew became an expert in skipping stones after a week. Kitchen was great- cooked every day, kitchen was very well equipped. While the house was off the beaten path, it was a quick ride to ithaca or Aurora, and a great jumping off point for exploring the finger lakes region. Beds were super comfy and there were plenty of extra blankets, which were needed, it was close to 45 one night. We will definitely be back!
First time in upstate NY during the summer and it was beautiful!! Kelli was great and easy to work with. Grounds were beautiful, and house was so cute and spotless! Only downfall was that the house didn't have AC so it was a little hot! Will definitely be back to visit Cayuga Lake!
The perfect getaway!
We spent our 25th Wedding Anniversary trip here. The property speaks for itself- it's beautiful inside and out. A clean, comfortable, cozy, well equipt cottage with adorable details inside and beautiful views outside. It's near so many great places- parks, wineries, farmers markets, and cute restaurants, and the rental process was friendly, efficient, and painless! I would highly recommend staying here. I would love to go again!!
