Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 28, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 10 Sleeps

Come enjoy the Finger Lakes year round while staying at 'The 1843 House'. It is a single family, 4 bedroom, home located on the west side of Cayuga Lake, just minutes from Seneca Falls (13 miles) and Ithaca (25 miles). It is close to the wineries on both Cayuga and Seneca Lakes. Built in 1843, it has old world charm with all the modern conveniences. You can find many antiques and period furniture as you move from room to room.

The house is completely furnished with 2 bedrooms downstairs and 2 bedrooms upstairs. There are 2 full bathrooms, one on each floor, a first floor laundry room with washer and dryer, a newly remodeled, eat-in fully equipped kitchen with new appliances including a

dishwasher, a large formal dining room and living room. The living room has a sleeper sofa which can be used if additional sleeping accomodations are needed. A door in one of the downstairs bedrooms opens to stone patio that is completely fenced in. There is plenty of parking, a red barn, a huge yard with several mature trees to shade you from the sun, 3 stone patios, picnic table and chairs, and front porch.

Across the road and 50 steps down, you will find 218 feet of lakefront with a shale beach, a new dock with a ladder, a canoe with paddles and a row boat with oars for your use, and a large deck with picnic table and chairs overlooking the water. Enjoy a campfire on the beach or in the fire pit on the side of the house.

There is no telephone land line but cell phone reception is excellent. Smoking is prohibited inside the house. Conservative use of the septic system, water and electricity is appreciated. Although the house is not child-proof, children are welcome.

Occupancy is limited to 10 maximum on the property.

This house will breathe a big sign of relief after we leave. Kids of all ages had a great time. Only way it could have been better is if mother nature had cooperated a little more.

Relaxing get away

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at this house. It was filled with antiques that created the ambience of an older home, yet it had all the modern conveniences. The house was clean and the kitchen had all the "tools" to prepare our meals. Since there are several wineries nearby, we enjoyed spending a few hours wine-tasting on Saturday. The view of the lake and autumn colors from the front porch were spectacular. We would definitely recommend this lake house to others and hope to return in the future.

Relaxing and enjoyable vacation house

  • 5 of 5
The lake house visit was relaxing and we enjoyed boating on the lake and visiting the sights in the area including the Corning Glass Company and Watkins Glenn. The house had all the amenities we needed and was decorated with period furnishing from the 1800s. The property was well maintained and the owners were friendly and stopped by for a visit. We enjoyed sitting on the lawn in the evening by the fire pit roasting marshmellows and listening to live music from the winery next door. I would highly recommend a vacation at this property to others. We are a family of 2 adults and children ages 16 to 31. A fun time was enjoyed by all

House is very quaint and the view is gorgeous!

  • 4 of 5
The house was very quaint. We stayed here overnight when going to a Hallowine Party near the house. The house was clean and had enough bedrooms to accommodate everyone in our party. It has a very well equipped kitchen and a very cozy living space. The view of lake from house is very nice! They have a nice dock and you can enjoy a campfire down by lake.

A wonderful family vacation

  • 4 of 5
We found the listing accurate and thorough. Amenities and lake equipment were good. Having a row boat and canoe available to us was very nice. It was great to have a deck near the beach. The dock is more of a fishing pier than a boat dock, but served our needs.

We had 6 adults and two children on our family vacation. Plenty of room and a nice large table for dining.The outside property was spacious and well kept and provided a nice gathering area on the patio.

There is no air conditioning, but wasn't a problem for us, since the weather was cooler.

Well supplied kitchen. Generally the house was clean and comfortable. Owners were pleasant and responsive.

Because the house was for sale, there was a house showing while we were there. We knew that might be a possibility but it was awkward leaving, having to have the house in order and our belongings left behind. We left for the afternoon.

All in all, our week stay was a great location for our family vacation. We would recommend the house to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I want to apologize again for having the house shown during your vacation. We really appreciated your leaving during that time. It was nice to read your kind words and the fact that you recommend our house to future renters.

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5
This was our first time renting the 1843 house. The guest list: my wife and me, my brother & spouse w/two pre-teens, other brother with spouse, and my dad and wife. Speaking for everyone, a great time was had. The house itself is beautifully kept yet very comfortable. The modern kitchen is well appointed (three frying pans!)with modern conveniences and has a nice open layout to accommodate multiple cooks. The beds were all extremely comfy with extra pillows and blankets.

The grounds around the house are beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised with the patio furniture, modern and well-suited to the space. The beach area has a raised deck with picnic table and chairs. While access to the beach is adequately described on the website, the 50+ stairs can be daunting for older folks or those with mobility or health issues.

The other really positive about the place is access to touristy thing-to-do. Wineries everywhere, a state park (Taughannock Falls) with a beautiful waterfall and gorge for hiking, a goat farm (great cheese!), a brewery and a bunch of nice, informal restaurants.

If your looking for a resort experience with four-star dining and exciting night life, this ain't for you. If you want low-key, uncomplicated days with friendly people in some of nature's most beautiful surroundings, make your reservation today. We will surely be back!

Owner's Response: We really appreciate this review. We strive to give our renters the best possible experience while staying at our lake house. The house has all the modern conveniences but with the charm of a home built in 1843. When you stay at the house all you have to bring is your own linen, towels, food and personal items. Everything else that you may need is there. There is even a canoe and life preservers for our guests to use.

Come spend your vacation with us during the summer or a weekend during the fall, winter and spring. The house is also available by the month during the off season. We'd love to have you!
