What makes this house unique

There is nothing quite so peaceful as sitting in the living room, on the porch, or in the master bedroom and watching the Cayuga Lake water move just a few yards away. Proximity to everything Ithaca has to offer makes this a unique location.

Great Ithaca home-base!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cozy home for our daughter's graduation from Cornell. The location could NOT be better! Unfortunately (because we were so busy!) we didn't get to fully utilize all of the amenities offered (kayaks, hot tub, BBQ, etc), but having a cup of coffee on the deck overlooking the lake was the BEST! Everything regarding the rental went smoothly and the house itself was very comfortable. The refrigerator was full of the owners' food when we arrived, which was kindof odd for a rental, but we worked around it. I had to throw out at least three jars of moldy salsa to make room for our stuff - but hopefully, the owner didn't mind. That fridge thing was my only issue the entire 5 night stay - so I'd say, that was a successful rental. Again, this location is amazing! A quick jaunt up the hill to campus, 5 minutes to the farmers market or anything you could want in town, and not far from everything else this amazing town has to offer! You cannot go wrong with this cozy lakeside getaway!

Great location just outside of Ithaca, close to wine region and right on the lake. Cozy house with very artistic touches, came with my family (wife and two young girls, age 1 1/2 and 2 months).

Excellent nights on the lake with a fire pit overlooking the water. So close to wine country you can almost smell the grapes! Owner very accomodating and engaged, they were very eager to make sure you had a great time.
