Another excellent stay
We enjoyed another great week at this amazing lake property. We are going on almost 10 years here and look forward to it every year. The multi-tiered deck/dock and sunset views can’t be beat. The owners again made improvements to property to make the stay enjoyable. This year we had an inquiry during our stay that they were prompt to respond to and take care of for us. We would highly recommend.
We were trying to remember how many summers you'd been coming to the lake house - you've gone from two to three generations in that time span. As always it is our pleasure to have you. You treat the place as if it were your own and we so appreciate the care you take. See you next summer.
Lisa and Joel’s cottage is spacious and comfortable. I loved the relics from travels, along with the sunsets to close the day. It was reminiscent of another time and place.
So pleased to hear that you enjoyed your week at the lake. We too feel transported to a simpler time when we are there and work hard to ensure that our guests feel the same.
Perfect week on the lake
A great cottage perched right on Cayuga Lake. The hosts met us and oriented us and were super helpful and responsive from booking to check in. The lake water was clear and refreshing. We saw bald eagles and all sorts of water birds. We also enjoyed Ithaca just half an hour away for great dinners. The array of decks , including the biggest one right over the water, offered seating and views at every level. We went out with our coffee every morning and hung out all evening. The hosts provided ample jugs of water (the town water is not potable and smells a bit metallic /sulfuric) and all in all gave us a great vacation spot we’d like to return to next year!
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at the lake house this summer. The eagles and osprey are a fairly new addition to the area and we too were thrilled to watch them fishing and dining in the trees around the house. The loons seem to be sticking around longer in the summer as well and we love their eerie calls in the early morning and evenings. Thank you for taking such good care of the place - we'd love to have you stay again next year!
The Best Ever
My son Jon told my that this was there best family vacation ever..........the kids lived in the water all week.......had a chance to " truly relax for the first time". This area of the Fingerlakes is especially beautiful in the summer
Stephen we are thrilled to hear that you had such a great week on the lake. We would have to agree ...this area is an absolute paradise in the summer (and the autumn with the fall colors is stunning as well.) Hope you'll bring the kids back again!
Great house with unparalleled outdoor spaces! Nice set-up to get kayaks and boats in and out of the water. LOVED the artsy touches inside and out. This house was perfect for our group of four, but had room for more. Very private, and friendly neighbors. Area convenient to Ithaca and local wineries and breweries. We had a lovely week and would love to stay again some time. Thank you, Lisa and Joel!
We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your week at the lake. The neighborhood is indeed private and friendly. We feel so fortunate to have found a place with such lovely people up and down the lane. The wineries, and more recently breweries, are popping up all over the area. One nearby has regular music and biking events all season long. There's just so much to do and see in the Fingerlakes region. We sincerely appreciate the care you took of our home and would love to have you back again anytime. Enjoy the rest of your summer! Lisa & Joel
Cozy, spacy place with all that is needed for a great vacation.
Super positive: beds, rooms, kitchen, ample space for the eight of us, fished and swam until exhausted.
things to think about: availability of drinkable water (enough there, just not out of pipes), boat hoist is temperamental but works well, fans needed in super hot weather, you have to bring your own towels and bed linens.
Super hosts: easy to contact and carefully care for their "visitors".
We would love to be able to have potable tap water but no one does this far out of Ithaca. These rural towns don't have city water. Most people have a well and folks on the lake have bottled water delivered. We're glad to hear that there was plenty for you.
The boat hoist wasn't working on the day you left because a tree was down on a power line - all power was out that morning - not sure you knew. Glad to hear that it worked well otherwise.
We're happy that you had a great week. Thank you for taking such good care of our home. You're welcome back anytime.
