Luxury Lakeside Comfort and Privacy

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Dec 4, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

This spacious lakeside home is a wonderful retreat; a place to get away from it all. There are plenty of spots in the house and on the property where you can curl up with your book, maybe take a nap. The lake is waiting to while away the day. Spend some time on the dock in the sun, a cool drink at your side, go for a swim or fish, maybe do nothing and drink in the solitude. So many opportunities are available to savor this lakeside venue. A slice of life at its best.

This spacious and well-appointed 3 to 4 bedroom home offers a large working kitchen, breakfast nook and formal dining room. The house is equipped heat and central air conditioning .

There is a large, fully outfitted gourmet kitchen which can accommodate simple to complex food prep. Enjoy those special feasts any way you want to go. A gas grill is just a few steps away on the deck and rounds out the cooking options. The adjoining dining room can easily accommodate 8 for meals. The adjacent living room has lots of comfy seating for reading, relaxing, or watching the basic cable TV. With a large collection of books and movies, every guest should be able to find something to while away the time. Off the living room is a screened in front porch; a wonderful spot to watch the lake go by as you sip your morning coffee or take an afternoon nap. You will find a small den in the northeast corner. It contains a desk for note writing and a collection of music for your listening pleasure.

Take either set of stairs to the second floor bedrooms. The master suite is located on the southern end of the house and contains a queen size bed. Expect more great lake views. The adjoining full bath with shower and double vanity sinks is spacious. On the north end, the upstairs has another bath and two bedrooms with full sized beds. The northern most bedroom also has a sitting area. The third bedroom is reminiscent of the original cottage and bright with expansive views to the south. Between the bedrooms on the north and south ends of the house one can find the game room and laundry. The game room also acts as a fourth bedroom and has a full sized futon. Board games, puzzles and a video-game-ready TV are there to help while away the occasional rainy day. The laundry is conveniently located close to the bedrooms and baths.

Let us know if you plan on bringing a boat or are interested in renting one . There is plenty of room on the dock. We can help put you in touch with an agency that has a wide variety of options.

Sorry no land line telephone, however we have excellent cell phone reception. For those who cannot cut loose from the web, wireless internet access is available. The house is not toddler proof. This is a smoke-free facility.

Plenty of room. Sunroom is great. Kitchen is large and very well stocked with many extras.

Truely Awesome Lakeside Vacation House & Property

Truely Awesome Lakeside Vacation House & Property
  • 5 of 5
We have been renting waterfront vacation homes for 20 years, and we felt that this vacation rental was really top-notch. Our vacation party consisted of 3 families (5 parents and 2 college girls).

This property is a "Mothership" for those who want to totally kick-back and relax on one of nature's true treasures. This "Mothership" can also provide a special home base for those who like to gallivant around on their vacations.

A very pleasant surprise was our host Ford, who was very pleasant, helpful and understanding. He has sincerely tried to provide accessories to the vacation home which would be beneficial to many renters.

The pictures on the website do not fully illustrate the wonderfulness of this vacation home. The rental is tastefully decorated and includes many accessories typically not found in vacation rentals. The inside of the house is very spacious and having two (2) set of stairs to the second floor bedrooms was special. With the many personal touches in place, the house creates a very "warm" atmosphere. The living room has a piano which can bring many hours of enjoyment when used by talented hands (not mine).

From the dock we were able to catch bass (Large, Small & Rock) and pan fish on artificial lures. No telling what kind of fish "stories" we would be telling if we had used bait minnows.

The property around the house is very nicely landscaped and larger than your typically lakeside vacation rental. The immediate neighbors were very quiet. The house is on a dead-end street and not close to any busy streets so road noise is of no concern. The property is very level with adequate parking and no steep driveway to navigate.

In the summer, there are some trees to bring shade, if desired, while viewing the lake. If the warming sun is desired, there are also locations available with fantastic lake view. There is a very nice deck on top of the utility building which is located right by the water's edge. This is mainly a shaded location but with a spectacular 180 degree panoramic lake view.

Due to the location of the house on the lake, around the dock the water temperature was actually reasonable comfortable for the Finger Lakes. This coming from someone who has lived in Florida for the past 30 years.

The canoes, paddle-boat and water floats provided by the owner came in very useful.

Many locations around Cayuga Lake are quite isolated from stores providing the daily needs, but not at this vacation home.

"What a beautiful house, perfect location, wonderful hosts. NO, they are not paying me to say this. Watched sunrise from the kitchen and the dock (great for fishing/sitting). Caught loads of perch and a northern pike from the dock. Hosts served an amazing brunch. Complete north/south view of the lake. Great kitchen, sun room, deck, bedrooms. There is a very nice living room and TV, but we never had time to sit there. The inside is even nicer than the pictures look. Great rowboat and canoe. You can't visit here and not say, this is great, I'm going to hate to leave. I see below a place to check girls getaway, buy we were 4 guys from SUNY Oswego, graduating in the 80's who did not see each other for 25 years. This is a great guys get-to-gather place - just don't sing around the piano, and it will be a fine Man-trip."

Location

From the Owner

I was fortunate to inherit the Knight Family Compound. It has been a great gift to have as my residence. The lake is always compellingly beautiful, no matter what time of year, but once the boats and docks get put in, it becomes the place I have always wanted to be: spending summer on the lake. Due to the expenses of maintaining the family compound it became worthwhile to rent the lake house. It has been a vacation rental for the past 5 years.

Located within minutes of Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake Wine

Trails, Antique Trails, and many New York State Parks located in the area which possesses a bucolic tranquility. Points of interest include the Women's Rights National Historic Park, Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge, and Finger Lakes National Forest. Antique shops and farm markets occur through out the summer. For serious shoppers the Waterloo Outlet Mall has a huge variety of stores offering fine merchandise and discount prices. Local Mennonite and Amish crafts and food can be found at Sauder's Market in Seneca Falls and at road side stands. The Pro Bass Shop in Auburn has every imaginable thing a outdoor enthusiast would want.

Less than 1 hour will transport you to Ithaca and its many colleges, multi-cultural

Head down Seneca Lake to Watkins Glen, located within an hour's drive. Watkins is more tourist oriented. There is a fabulous shoe store, Famous Brands, and many other great shops and restaurants to explore. The plethora of wineries located along the way along with fine restaurants and antiques make it a great day trip. Go a little farther away to Corning and see the recently renovated Glass Museum.

Amenities

From the Owner

This is a premier property in every sense of the word: privacy assured, excellent water quality, a house that is large enough to be versatile but homey, located far enough from the highway that road noise is virtually non existent. Hang out at the end of the dock in the sun or sit on top of the boathouse in the shade of the massive oak and ash trees. Either way the lake beckons...
