In addition, there is a day bed with trundle (both full sized) in the TV room and space for a crib or inflatable mattress. All mattresses are new and the house easily sleeps 8.

Activities: Clearview Road is a quiet, single lane road perfect for long bike rides and walks all along the lake front. The house is situated in Genoa, New York in the heart of finger-lakes wine country with over 50 local vineyards.

Just a 10 minute drive south of picturesque Aurora, New York (home of Wells College) and 30 minutes north of Ithaca (home of Cornell University and Ithaca College) there is enough to do and see in the area to keep you busy every day, if you can drag yourself away from the lake.

Ithaca, Utne Reader’s “Most Enlightened City in the US” and home of the famous Moosewood Restaurant is a vibrant community alive with art, music, theatre, museums, sporting events and festivals. The twice weekly farmers market is full of fresh local produce, ethnic foods and local art and crafts.

In Aurora, dine at the historic Aurora Inn, stop at in one of the antique shops, stroll along turn-of-the-century, picture post-card streets and have homemade ice-cream at the old fashioned soda fountain. Aurora is also home of Mackenzie-Childs, for a look at their fanciful, hand-made ceramics visit their website.

Perfect Lake Home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is super gorgeous!!! The owner - Lisa - met us there and gave us the grand tour. The house is perfect! Spacious and so well maintained. The decor is phenominal, 3 full bathrooms, open floorplan, and let's not forget the tri-level decks! Our friends and family live in the area so we decided this would be the perfect place to stay for our summer vacation and I'm so glad we did! Thank you so much Lisa for sharing your beautiful summer home with us....we will definitely be back again!!! ~ Jennifer

Fantastic! Magnificent! Need I say more?

  • 5 of 5

I am writing to thank you tell everyone about our fantastic stay at this lakehouse. We absolutely loved our time there, it is a truly special place. The sunsets were spectacular and the house was really comfortable and cozy. The many levels of decks made it easy to find your own special private place on the lake. Sitting on top of the high deck, at night, with a glass of wine and a full moon above beautiful Cayuga Lake was incomparable. The inside of the house was great. Really roomy and comfortable. It was very clean and airy with excellent daylight and awesome views of the lake and ... wow! What beautiful sunsets! Also, it is safe and quiet as the road behind was only 5 mph and barely travelled. With three bathrooms and an absolutely gorgeous Master Bedroom to die for, you can't go wrong! We highly recommend this Lakehouse rental to everyone!!! We looked at another for $1000 more per week and it was nowheres near as nice as this. The location is really great and away from all traffic and noise. You never feel cramped. The surrounding area is also absolutely beautiful as well with rolling farms, vineyards and much more, a great place to vacation. It is said that the Finger Lakes have a special spiritual presence, that the Indians (some improperly use the term "Native Americans") feel the hand of The Great Spirit. the Cayuga believed the Great Spirit Manitou rested his hand upon the earth in gratitude for their courage in battle and devotion to form those lakes. We all felt that presence, of that entity, The Great Spirit as we drove through the hills and countryside, while running along the lake road and while sitting on the decks of your beautiful lakehouse, enjoying the sunsets, beautiful full moon and the sounds of the water lapping along the shore...... Magnificent!!

A terrific house, a great spot

  • 5 of 5

The house was terrific; well maintained and clean! It was incredibly roomy and so well equipped! The sun porch was our favorite spot with the view of the lake and the breeze from the windows. However, the porches (one covered) were also great. The master bedroom was incredibly large as was the master bathroom. (There was a bathroom with shower for each bedroom!)

The location was close enough to Ithaca that shopping was easy. Within driving distance, there were state parks. All questions were answered, all problems resolved!

At the "top of the hill" (very steep), was the best sweet corn, a great "family diner" and, close by, terrific ice cream.

I was very apprehensive renting this house as it was my first experience with Now, I recommend using to everyone and sing the praises for the jewel of a place. We will look to go back another year!
