Overview

About the property

6 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Sleeps 18 in a Comfy and Spacious Environment

Thank you for your interest in our home!

If you are looking to accommodate a larger group, or this home is booked, please take a look at our other home VRBO #467231. The homes are neighbors and can sleep up to 30 guests between the two.

At nearly an acre, and with 150 feet of waterfront, our property provides plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the various seasons. Whether grilling on the porch in the summer, or enjoying a fire by the shore in autumn, this space provides a quiet place to relax with friends and family.

Our home sleeps 12-18 people comfortably in 6 bedrooms.

The driveway leads down the hill and directly to the front door. Over the years, kids of all ages and family members with varying states of health have loved the property year round. In the dead of winter, snow piled waist high, it is possible to live in solitude on the lake, while driving directly to the front door. I've done it. Eagles fishing during the day, ducks and geese chattering at night. It's pretty close to perfect.

In the dead of winter, the frozen tributaries and streams surrounding Cayuga push the resident waterfowl population into our backyard. It's an amazing way to sleep, and my favorite time on the lake. Though we can't live in it right now, we love knowing that other people can enjoy the homes.

*We can now tent weddings, christenings, graduation celebrations, etc. Feel free to contact for details!*

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

Very appropriate for the house we needed. A few small issues, needs wine glasses and a better wine bottle opener. Would be nice to have small soaps available. We got locked out due to an internet issue, and the owners were easy to get a hold of, but letting us know the code change before we were standing out in the rain would have been good. Driveway/parking is difficult to negotiate.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the response, We're sorry the wine opener wasn't up to standards. We have since purchased a new one and new glasses for the home. We always appreciate when guests tell us about the things they need during the stay because we're happy to get anything the house might be missing, and make sure it's delivered to them ASAP. We're also so sorry you got caught in the rain. We ask that our guests read the welcome book that is emailed to them prior to their stay, and that is on the table in the kitchen, so that they can become familiar with our locks and their code. As far as lake driveway goes, our tenants generally appreciate being able to drive directly to the front door; it always helped our family members with mobility issues, but we understand that the lake driveways can be intimidating. Thank you again for staying with us, and for the feedback!

Great house with lots of bedrooms!

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was just what we needed for a September weekend at the lake. There were enough rooms for our large group of friends, meaning everyone had a nice bed to sleep in and the living space was big enough for everyone to hang out comfortably. The deck is spacious, has a nice grill and offers a nice view of the lake. The dock is great for a day at the lake and we easily caught many fish. We also enjoyed a fire and smores on the beach.

The only downside was the hike to and from the lake from the house is very steep and once you get into the water, you'll likely need to swim to shore. The ladder on the dock was difficult for even the most fit of my friends.

The house was clean and well maintained and when we had an issue, the owners were easily accessible and sent someone down right away.

Clean and spacious traditional house on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

This is a clean and well kept home on the lake, just a couple miles north of downtown Ithaca. The first floor bedroom with bathroom, provided an accessible bedroom for my mother. Plenty of parking. Easy access to the lake for the more nimble. Lakefront beach is spacious allowing enough room for lawn games. Nice dock with a beach area to swim and to put a canoe in. Kitchen is a bit small for providing for meals. Deck has beautiful views of the lake. Extremely convenient to all of the activities that Ithaca provides--parks, fruit picking, ice cream, museums. Responsive owners. I would recommend to others.

Property recently updated, very clean and wonderfully appointed--beautiful sunrises--great expierenc

  • 5 of 5

Overall a 98%--Beautiful property, well maintained with very helpful & accessible mgmt. close to everything. Only a few items would make 100%. Breaker would occasionally flip (hair blow dryer) but easily flipped back on---Completion of steps or switchback path down hill to access beach would benefit elderly and young visitors. Dock repairs from ice damage. Loved it--Thanks Again!! Karl & Barb

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! We're always grateful when our tenants have a good time. Concerning your three points, thank you for the feedback. Our electrician identified and resolved the problem with the circuit breaker; the house now has more than enough capacity to meet the needs of future tenants. Unfortunately, we won't be able to build stairs until our first break in the schedule, this September, but we’re grateful for the idea, and will update here with pictures as soon as it’s complete. We’re working on the dock, too. We found a great dock guy! And have scheduled a time to get it repaired and, hopefully, to add a cool new portion of the dock. He’s assured us that the dock is structurally sound, and that the problems are cosmetic and aesthetic in nature; an army of kids doing cannon balls all summer couldn't knock it down! We loved hosting your family for graduation; see you back at the lake soon! Sincerely, The Dudley Group LLC

Large family get together

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family. The house was clean, had a spectacular view of the lake and had just about everything we needed. The driveway was a little tricky but once inside this beautiful home you forget about that. We would definitely stay here again.

Great for large or small groups!

  • 5 of 5

House was quaint, comfy, and clean. All amenities were provided, utilities fully functional, and bedrooms made up and very cozy. Perfect for large or small groups with plenty of space to play around by the water. Would definitely go back!
