Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 8 (6 Adults and 2 Children Max)

Morning Dew is a stunning home on crystal clear Cayuga Lake. This home boasts a level yard and a walkout basement that is just steps to more than 40 feet of private lake frontage with a large dock that gets you out into pristine water for some great swimming and prime fishing territory.

The home is over 1500 square feet, with an open design that takes advantage of the 180 degree lake views. With sliding glass doors and a giant picture window overlooking the huge deck, dock and lake, you will always have a lake view wherever you go throughout the house. The house is fully winterized with central heat, and is available all year long.

Inside, there is space for 6-8 people to sleep comfortably. The master bedroom is on the main floor and has one queen bed and its own private sliding glass door that has you waking up to spectacular views. Upstairs there are three other sleeping areas- one large bedroom with two queen beds, a smaller open bedroom with one double bed, and a loft area with a full size futon; all with views of the lake.

New for 2017 is a completely refinished deck, dock and Add to dictionary, including updated landscaping. Additionally, we have a whole house AC system that will keep you comfortable without the old window units distracting you from spectacular views. Add in the ceiling fans located throughout the house, and the lake breeze, you and your family will stay comfortable day and night.

To make your stay as relaxing as possible, Morning Dew is well outfitted for your use, and includes a washer and dryer and a well equipped kitchen with pots, pans and utensils. For your entertainment, the home has a 47’ TV, cable, WiFi, Sonos stereo system, board games and two fishing kayaks. Outside you will enjoy the gated deck overlooking the lake, gas fire pit on the deck, wood fire pit by the water, and a large gas grill.

But that is just the beginning. Morning Dew is located in some of the most desirable parts of the lake area, as it is situated just south of the Cayuga State Park. The park begins ½ mile to the North and offers public amenities such as a sandy beach, a boat launch and wonderful updated playground, all within a short 10 min walk.

Looking for something to eat? Less than 1 mile in either direction by foot, car, bike, or boat gets you to some local favorites; Wolffies Restaurant, as well as Jimmy's Lakeside at the Deerhead Inn. Both have docks on the lake, wonderful views and full lunch and dinner menus.

Finally, Morning Dew is at the beginning of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail; giving you accesses to some of the finest wines the Finger Lakes area has to offer. Layer in Seneca Falls historical sites, 4 golf courses within 5 miles, Taughannock Falls and Buttermilk Falls, Waterloo Premium Outlets and the beautiful town of Ithaca. And if that wasn't enough, the brand new Del Lago Casino is less than 7 miles from the home. With all the things to do, you and your family will have an unforgettable vacation.

Walk out in the Morning Dew today.

Occupancy includes pillows and comforters. You must bring your own linens. If booking between Columbus Day and Memorial day, please note that the dock will be out of the water and the patio furnature may be in storage for the winter.

About David and Lisa

Family with 2 children and a love for the Lake life. We use this as our vacation home as well!

David and Lisa purchased this house in 2013

Why David and Lisa chose Finger Lakes

The location sold it for us. With a level lot, walking proximity to restaurants, a beach and a convenient store, as well as the newly updated home itself, we realized that this was an unbelievable find. It was love at first sight for us.

What makes this house unique

This home was renovated back in 1980 and then again updated in 2009, but the true draw for this home is its location on the lake and it's level property. This rare feature allows quick access to the water, and unparalleled views.

Was all we hoped for, a great house and location. Just wish the weather cooperated better.

  • 5 of 5

Property was just as shown in the pictures. Spent a ton of time on the deck with family and taking in the lake. Even a bad day is good next to the lake!

Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to this region and our first at a lake house. All I can say is we are ready to go back! A fabulous property with all the amenities to let you forget about any stresses in your life. Our family truly relaxed and disconnected from day to day life as they know it. It was wonderful waking up every morning to a beautiful sunrise while sipping coffee on the spacious deck right on the water. The kids loved the kayaks and even got our pup to enjoy the ride! Neighbors were extremely friendly and helpful with advice of places to go in the region, especially ice cream spots! Dave and Lisa truly made this a home away from home. We enjoyed having a great location to spend time as a family cooking together, taking walks, enjoying the surroundings of the area, reading books and playing games in the evening. This is a treasure that will not disappoint. Hoping to return again soon!

Wonderful lake house

  • 5 of 5

The house is right on the lakefront and the views are beautiful! The kitchen is upgraded, rooms are spacious, and dock is awesome for having a glass of wine and watching the sunset. The house so super close to the Cayuga wine trail which has amazing little wineries where you grab a drink and bite with incredible views of the lake.

David and Lisa were fast to respond to any questions and really made us feel at home. Thank you for a memorable weekend.

Outstanding all around!

  • 5 of 5

First of all the property is what was presented. Modern, clean and clearly kept up nicely. We spent three nights here while visiting our daughter at college and felt so at home here vs a hotel. Convenient location and great relaxing view of the water while having morning coffee and listening to the geese congregate! Highly recommend and will definatley return here! Thank you David and Lisa!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review Debbie. You and your family were wonderful guest and we would be happy to have you stay with us again. Although the sights and sounds of the Geese is so unique to the winter months, the Summer and early Fall at the lake is spectacular as well. We look forward to having you stay with us aging. David and Lisa

Beautiful house, great location!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at your house 2 years ago and loved it! The biggest, but certainly not the only, selling point for us was the fact that we could take our dogs and, most importantly, the deck has a gate! However, since our stay 2 years ago, the property is in some decline. The deck really needs to be refinished, the knobs on all the cupboards are loose and there are no juice glasses.

Owner's Response: Dear Cheryl, Thank you for the feedback. We are sorry that there were things that did not meet your expectations, and caused anything other than a five star rating as we take pride in our guests comfort and we want to make sure we do everything we can to make our guests stay as great as possible. Your feedback is an important part of that effort. We appreciate hearing about the juice glasses and the knobs on the cabinets as neither had been brought up before and will be addressed. Aditionaly, the deck was being prepped for refinishing during your stay. The wet spring delayed the maintenance at the beginning of the season, however 2 weeks latter, the deck, docks and house were completely refinished. We understand that things happen from time to time, but we also believe that the only way to improve is to communicate with our renters, and we want to make sure that we deliver the best possible vacation experience possible. Thank you again for the feedback and we look forward to having you stay at Morning Dew again soon. Sincerely, David and Lisa
