Wooden dock with sitting and fishing area.

Picnic table that seats 8 under large shade tree in yard overlooking the lake.

Fire circle available for small campfires.

A limited number of lawn chairs, fishing poles, and lures are available for use.

Paper products-toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, and coffee filters-are provided.

Self cleaning cottage-you must leave the cottage in the same clean condition as you find it in. Cleaning supplies are provided. Hand and dish soap are also provided.

Because the running water in the cottage comes directly from the lake, the owners have installed a whole house UV water filtration system that all of the water goes through before it enters the house. As a precautionary measure, the owners recommend that you bring your own drinking water. A brita filter pitcher is available for use if you would prefer not to bring your own drinking water. The water is safe for cooking and bathing.

You must bring your own bed linens, pillows, blankets, and towels with you. Limited bed linens, pillows, blankets, and towels are available for use if you would rather not bring your own, but if used, must be washed and put away at the end of your stay in the same condition as you found them.

Swimming, boating, kayaking, fishing, or any activities on or near the property are strictly at your own risk.

What a jewel of a vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I can't say enough wonderful things about this property!! We are all spread out and it is hard to get together often, and this cottage was exactly what we were looking for on our grils getaway weekend! Julie and Adam are wonderful owners and their home is clean, comfortable and well stocked with everything you need.The pictures hardly do this property justice,we were so impressed with all the touches the owner gave the property to make their guests feel at home. The girls and I had a wonderful time relaxing on the dock, swimming, grilling, playing games, and just enjoying the scenery. The highlight was certainly sitting on the dock catching some amazing sunsets and then one night being treated to fireworks going on around the lake! We visited the Kings Ferry Winery and had a blast sampling the delicious local wines and the employees were friendly and made our visit special. If you are looking for a place to come and relax with friends or family look no further. We made some wonderful memories and we look forward to returning next summer! Thanks again Adam and Julie!

Beautiful location! Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was organized and clean. Being steps from the water and kayaks was a definite plus! The sunsets on this side of Lake Cayuga are amazing. This was a perfect cabin to get our daughter away from her studies at Cornell for the Fall break. Cozy quarters but we were comfortable enough to invite a couple of her classmates to join us. I would rent this place again in a heartbeat.

Peaceful Lake Retreat

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was a wonderful, peaceful retreat as we dropped our daughter off at Cornell. It had everything, room for six, kitchen, washer/dryer. Just make sure you bring provisions for breakfast since the markets and restaurants are a little far. Very relaxing and great satellite TV. Couldn't have asked for more!
