About Sherry Thompson

We encourage our guests to reach out to us prior to their stay to make sure this property is exactly what you are looking for. We pride ourselves in making sure their are no surprises and that this is the perfect location for your vacation.

Sherry Thompson purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Sherry Thompson chose King Ferry

Last year was our first year of renting this small quaint, very clean property and the feedback was all positive. The relaxing covered porch, dock with swimming area, full size appliances including washer and dryer, the amazing sunsets, dead end road are all bonuses. What sets this property above others is that it includes many amenities that others don't (linens, towels, cleaning supplies, cable and wifi, air condition, etc). You bring your food/drink and personal items and you're ready for your stay. We have new kayaks at the property with life jackets. Within driving or boating distance we have some of the best wineries in the Finger Lakes. There is also a winery boat tour. Golf course within walking distance or short drive. Restaurants in the area within a 5 to 30 minute drive. Above all, the neighbors are all friendly!

What makes this cottage unique

Right on the water, no stairs or cliffs obstructing your immediate view.

Many restaurants, grocery options and a golf course within a short driving distance. By boat you can visit at least seven to eight wineries, there is also a boat tour option available! Straight across the lake, 3 to 5 minute boat ride is a restaurant. Several other restaurants within 20 minutes either direction by land or water. State parks accessible by water or land.

We had a great vacation on the lake with some great fiends. Cottage was fantastic! Fishing was excellent. Lots of things to explore in the local area. You must check out the waterfalls in the area and the really good breweries. The owners Sherry and Art were fantastic. You just have to experience this place to appreciate how beautiful it is on Lake Cayuga.

We stayed the week of July 22, 2017. The owners, who live next door, could not be more accommodating or welcoming. The cottage, while small, utilizes every bit of space. It's beautiful and provides everything you could want; air conditioning, washer/dryer, dishwasher, wifi, satellite TV, sleeps six. It has a beautiful two-level dock. The upper level with table and chairs and a full size gas grill and the lower level with two lounge chairs as well as a floating inflatable raft. There are also two kayaks. This cottage is a a beautiful section of Cayuga Lake with GREAT swimming and excellent fishing right off the dock. Very quiet and everyone is very friendly. It's a great place for a decompressing vacation on the water.

Lovely cottage, friendly lake community

  • 4 of 5

Great landlords live next door if you have a question. Size good for 2-4 people. Nicely decorated. All the things necessary to set up house, including outdoor grill which is perfect for summer. Great, direct access to lake with kayaks. Walking along the long dead end road let's you meet the friendly neighbors. Only issue is the bedrooms are a bit tight and there is not much storage if you want to unpack. Also, if it is hot, the bedrooms can be a bit stuffy unless you've left the aircon on for a LONG time. In total, we'd book again in a heartbeat and are thinking of a time now.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cottage rental is a good value. Beautiful views, spacious deck and dock, kayaks for use, all modern appliances and a relaxing environment. Sleeping for 6 is a bit tight but cottage has a spacious feel due to the raised ceiling. My compliments to Art and Sherry. I'll definitely return for a long weekend.

Well furnished cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully clean and equipped cottage. Our week was a hot one so the AC upstairs kept us all smiling. We cooked in most of the time and having many kitchen tools, pots and pans, felt like home ( plus our packing was made easy). A few family members had to "work" so the wireless service was a huge benefit. The dock is wide and safe. Our grandkids enjoyed the water. This place is a treasure for a family. 3 bedrooms and 1 1/2 baths- !! Can't wait to go back.

Good Location and Views

  • 3 of 5

The location and sunset views are wonderful. Parking was tight, but the owners made room for us without complaint. The screen porch was great, but we could have done without the ants. Maybe get rid of the carpet under the table? They did provide spray. It was nice to have two kayaks available. We wouldn't have taken extras if we had known. The house is roomy, but needs updated furniture, especially the living room couch.The fridge also leaked onto the kitchen floor daily. Perhaps time for a new one? We had to call for a bathroom drain leak and the owners came right away. Be aware, however, that you are expected to scour bathrooms and mop floors before you leave as they do not normally do this for the next visitors or you will not receive your full security deposit return if they have to clean.
