Beautiful lakefront getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful lake home for a long weekend. Upon pulling into the driveway we immediately felt the relaxation and privacy of the property. The house was the perfect size for 2, not too big not too small, but could easily accommodate more people if needed. We spent a lot of time out and about in Ithaca and the surrounding parks (Buttermilk Falls and Taughannock Falls are a must see!) but the house was great to come home to after a long day and enjoy some time around the fire pit, sitting by the lake, or cooking in the large and well equipped kitchen. The house has everything you need to feel comfortable. Waking up each morning with a view of the lake can't be beat. Jennifer was very easy to contact with any questions and has done a wonderful job of making the home a true getaway.

Perfect fall getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This clean, beautiful, well-equipped lakefront home was the perfect place to stay for a few days while visiting the Ithaca area. After spending our days exploring the nearby waterfalls and hiking trails (Watkins Glen State Park is a must-see!), we loved relaxing in the over-sized tub or the two-person hammock while watching the sunset over the lake. We also enjoyed using the kayak provided by our wonderful hosts. We've already recommended this home to our family and friends, and we're hoping to return in the not-too-distant future!

The home was easily accessible, clean and well equipped. There are multiple places to sit outdoors with gorgeous views of the lake and sunsets.. We enjoyed using the kayak and paddle board available.

Cottage in Ithaca, New York

A wonderful property that we have stayed in before. The owners made several nice improvements in the last year which provided additional comfort. Simply a great place to stay for a vacation.

Groton, NY

First Class

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful lake home is brand new and furnished with top end amenities including leather reclining sofa and reclining chairs. The bedroom has beautiful dark cherry furniture... And it has the most well appointed kitchen we've ever seen in a rental...A real luxury. The house is spotless, I have never stayed in such an immaculately kept home.

The location is private and peaceful with mesmerizing lake views, yet close to Ithaca and Cornell.

We highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return.
