About Jane Brannigan

My husband is a Cornell Alumni and Ithaca holds a special place in his heart. Although we live in Brooklyn, we visit the house as much as we can and like nothing better than relaxing on the deck and enjoying the lovely sunsets.

Jane Brannigan purchased this house in 1995

Why Jane Brannigan chose Cayuga Lake

The large outdoor area makes it ideal for a family vacation or celebration. The water is deep enough to dive into from the dock and the Farmer's Market is a short kayak ride away!

Beautiful Ithaca 3 Bedroom Lake House
average rating of 4.95 based on 20 reviews

Lovely, clean lakefront home!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed at this 3 bedroom lake house for three nights for our daughter's college graduation. The house is nestled among the trees and has the sound of a nice small waterfall on the property. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and had everything set up for our arrival. The house is very clean and comfortable. Well stocked kitchen necessities (spices, coffee, etc.) added to the convenience. It is only a few minute drive to town or to great hiking. The view of the lake from the balconies is beautiful, and there is an indoor fireplace and pool table and an outdoor pit as well. Well worth the price. :)

We loved the house and had a great stay

  • 5 of 5

This location was perfect for our family. The house is beautiful with complete lake access. It is so close to Ithaca that a quick trip to town for coffee or groceries is no inconvenience. Owners are very responsive and we had no problems at all.

Great location, Great House

  • 5 of 5

Pros -

-House is in great shape

-Full of all the things you hate to buy when renting a house for a week (Kitchen supplies, extra bedroom stuff, fishing stuff, life jackets and tons more)

-Comfy beds

-Plenty of trash tags.

-Backyard for kids

-Awesome dock

-You feel isolated but SO close to Ithaca.



Loved this house. Owners are easy to talk to and accommodating. House is as advertised. We had so much fun. We spent so much time on the dock fishing, swimming, and canoeing we could have just paid for that and been just fine! That being said, the house was great. It is in good shape, the bathrooms are great, the beds are comfy and the downstairs area is awesome for the kids to play and watch movies at night while the adults are upstairs. Neighbors are quiet but they were OK with us being a LITTLE loud the first night. It is not a party area but we did have campfires and sat around talking and no one was bothered.

Overall great house, it just had such a nice feeling to it. You can tell the owners take pride in it and love it as well.

Best lakefront and prime location!

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented this lake house for a week every summer for the last several years, and it could not be more ideal for our large family. With an apartment below for an entire family to use, three bedrooms in the main house, and plenty of air mattress and sleeping bag room in the living room, we can comfortably fit our large family and their guests. Two miles from Ithaca, Cass Park and the new Cayuga Waterfront Bike Trail, a short drive from Taughannock Park, and easy access to the Cayuga and Seneca Lake wineries, the house is in a prime location for everyone's interests. The house has the best beach (an actual yard with shade, a hammock, and bonfire!) and largest dock on this end of Cayuga Lake, and it is an easy kayak ride to the Farmer's Market, Stewart and Cass Parks. The house is clean with plenty of space to escape to a quiet room or balcony, and the owners are incredibly attentive and responsive. The stairs are a climb from the road to the house and from the house to the beach, but the new lower driveway made such a difference for packing and unpacking and was much appreciated (be cautious backing down and careful heading up back into traffic)! I would recommend this house to any stair-able family looking for a beautiful, convenient, and comfortable place to host a large family.

Great Location and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a cousins reunion -- 7 of us sharing this house. It was perfect for our weekend -- a well-stocked kitchen, comfortable family room, and lovely decks for enjoying the lake views and breezes! The location was great - close to town, but not in the midst of it; the bedrooms (3, each with a queen bed, plus a daybed in the family room) were comfortable; the owner was great to work with.

I'd be wary of recommending the property for folks who have trouble with stairs, as (like most houses on the lake) navigating stairs is a must to get to the house from the parking area, or from the house to the decks and lake. Other than that, no qualms at all about recommending this house - we will rent it again next time we need a place for the family in Ithaca!

Graduation Weekend 2015

  • 5 of 5

Graduation weekends can be hectic, but not ours thanks to this beautiful property. Six adults stayed in total comfort in the three bedrooms and there was ample room, indoors and out to relax, shoot pool, or play a game. Although Ithaca has excellent restaurants, we wanted to avoid the downtown bustle and eat at home. The well equipped, roomy kitchen made cooking a pleasure. Garlic press, citrus juicer, cork screw, gas grill---you name it, it was there. The property was well maintained, clearly cared for and the owners were great to work with. We loved our stay!
