About the property

Our cabin offers accommodations for 2 adults only

This cozy efficiency cabin, affectionately called "The Isle of Ours", is located on Cayuga Lake, in the heart of the Finger Lakes. It is nestled into the side of a hill on our secluded 45 acres of woodland with a quarter mile of beach frontage. Our cottage road and beach are shared by only 3 other cottages. The lake view from the cabin deck, with it's canopy of pine trees, make this vacation spot very see nothing but the lake. Most of our tenants return each year to enjoy the pristine surroundings and serenity of the 'Isle of Ours', which only leaves a few weeks open each summer season for new sure to book early! The cabin is equipped with a full frig, stainless sink, microwave, large toaster oven, hot plate, coffee that you need to prepare simple meals for two. Features include adjacent parking (please note that our cottage road has a steep hill as you approach the common in the Finger Lakes area), your own flat beach w/ a small dock and campfire pit, a large deck with picnic table, deck chairs and charcoal grill. Your bathroom is a private, separate building with a shower, toilet and the "Royal Flush". Favorite tenant activities include swimming, fishing, kayaking, wine tasting and hiking our private woodland trails or the nearby State Park trails. Our family-owned rental cabin is near Ithaca (be sure to check out the many gorges and the Ithaca Farmer's Market), Cornell University (the campus grounds and "The Plantations" offer a wonderful walk/hike), the Finger Lakes Wine Trail (8 wineries within 30 minutes!) and four State Parks, including Taughannock State Park with it's famous 212 foot water falls (2 miles down the road). Trumansburg village amenities, including the best soft ice cream in the Finger Lakes, are five minutes away. Other details about your reservation and lease will follow with your booking.

Delightful cabin

You get woods and lake, spectacular views, kitchen and bath nicely equipped with essentials. All real antique wood cabin inside and out. A lot of heart went into making the cabin. Owners extremely pleasant and helpful. Hope to return often.

Come swim, hike and fish just a few steps away from your cabin. Explore the nearby State Parks and wineries or just relax with a good summer "read" on your private deck with nothing but pine trees and lake to look up at.

Our rates are based on single or double occupancy. We rent from Sunday (2pm) to Sunday (10am). Occasionally, and only in the off season, we rent our cabin for the weekend with a $300 minimum charge. Call or write for rates and availability for extended stays in the Spring and Fall. We regret that we cannot rent to couples with children or handicapped individuals, as the terrain surrounding this cabin is not conducive to their needs.
