GReat weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We rented with "3" other families for Ithaca parents weekend. Our sons and friends all came for dinner Friday and Saturday. They loved the lake, a lot of stone skipping and laughs were had. Great to watch young men turn into boys again.

Home was beautiful. Location great. Met Christina and Luna while out for a walk. Would definetly rent again. Home well equipped to make for a memorable weekend.

Gorgeous lakefront with stellar views

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start... The charm of this home is almost indescribable. From the home-like feel to the lake views from nearly every window in the house, my crew of 10 felt comfortable from the minute we got there. The area is lined with cute homes and peaceful surroundings. We brought our own chef and she loved the spacious kitchen for plating and presentation. The homeowner, Christina, was responsive and gave excellent advice regarding popular wineries in the area. The home was clean and spacious. The deck a perfect place to watch sunsets. Though we didn't get a chance to spark up the fire pit, we'll be sure to test it out on our next visit. Many thanks for a great stay, Christina.

Gorgeous Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family of 3 generations loved our week together and we are all looking forward to returning next year to this quiet, comfortable, gorgeous getaway. The 5 bedrooms were exactly what we needed with the special addition of the separate efficiency apartment for our family with infant and toddler. The home was generously equipped for all of our cooking and relaxing needs. The sunset over the lake was spectacular.
