Sweet Sheldrake Cottage

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This charming three bedroom, two bath cottage is located in Sheldrake, at exactly the mid-way point of the west side of Cayuga Lake. Sheldrake Point Winery is a pleasant five minute walk to the south, and there are four other wineries within a five minute drive.

Although the house is not directly on the lake, it does have lovely lake views from the living room and front deck. It also has full use of the large private beach at Silver Strand Bed and Breakfast, immediately next door. The beach has several separate seating areas, including a huge second story sun deck. We also offer four bicycles, two kayaks, and a row boat for guests' enjoyment.

Water To Wine Tours offers a five-hour, three-winery Wino Limo boat cruise daily~this is a fantastic way to gain a whole new perspective of our beautiful area! They also offer private charters for folks who want to make their own agenda.

There are over one hundred wineries in the Finger Lakes. We are in the middle of the Cayuga Wine Trail and a 15 minute drive to the Seneca Wine Trail.

More and more micro-breweries and distilleries are coming to our area all the time! Myer Farm Distillers is a 5 minute drive away...don't miss their ginger vodka!

State parks and waterfalls abound. Taughannock Falls is fifteen minutes to the south, Watkins Glen is a thirty five minute drive, and the town of Ithaca has many falls to explore. While in Watkins Glen, you can pay $25 and take your car on the track for three laps behind a pace car!

There are several summer theatre venues, including the Hangar Theatre in Ithaca and the Merry Go Round Playhouse in Auburn. Auburn is also the home of three buildings boasting original Louis Tiffany windows.

The Corning Museum of Glass is a world-class destination, an hour and a quarter away. Mackenzie-Child is on the east side of Cayuga Lake, about an hour drive, and is a whimsical way to spend a bit of time.

There is a small, unpaved boat launch right around the corner from the cottage, as well as Dean's Cove State Marine Park 15 minutes to the north of us for guests bringing their own boats. Plenty of room at the cottage for parking your trailer!
