Guestbook comments from the owner

Last weekend was rainy, but that didn't stop my guests from having a wonderful time. Whether you want to stay indoors and play board games or venture out to the nearby, abundant, wineries, go to a museum, or shop at the outlet mall there is plenty to do close to Cayuga Lake.

amazing place

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Botanical Hill! Accommodations and property were as good as described. The owner was pleasantly responsive to all of our needs and requests. We enjoyed the nearby wineries and the quiet town of Seneca Falls. The sprawling, well-maintained lawns were especially welcome for our active preschool grandchildren, including a small sandbox, tree house, swing set and wonderful grass for walking barefoot! (We saw few insects, especially mosquitoes!) The decks had great views where we enjoyed the families of deer who came and grazed morning and night. Milfoil growing in the lake can interfere with swimming, but the waterfront is wonderful for kayaking, canoeing and relaxing.

Wonderful!

We feel so lucky that we came across Botanical Hill and were able to stay there for a week this summer. The apartment is lovely and very well outfitted. But the most amazing features for us were the spectacular grounds - acres of rolling lawn down to a very private lakefront - and the owner, who lives in the house next door, who was so generous, helpful, and accommodating. Our little boys were happy and busy playing in the sandbox, on the playset, and with other toys that Ms. Lucinda lent us. And we loved cooking on the grill, eating out on the balcony, swimming in the lake and visiting towns, farms and wineries.

Owner's Response: I enjoy sharing Botanical Hill with guests. It is a pleasure interacting with the families and seeing how happy they are taking full advantage of what the property has to offer. Living in the Finger Lakes area provides so many opportunities for entertainment-the wineries, museums, the lakes for swimming, boating, and fishing and shear relaxation.

The beautiful house was an excellent solution for the weekend. it slept 6 very comfortably. we couldn't use all the potential because of the busy graduation weekend but the area, the house and general atmosphere are unique. the owner is very friendly. Great place for activities in the area.

Owner's Response: I get such joy from meeting Cornell families when they rent at Botanical Hill. I remember how difficult it was for parents to find a place to stay when I went to Cornell. Whether it was orientation, parents weekend, homecoming,or Reunion time, there was always a panic to find room at the inn. Renting at Botanical Hill maybe your answer-only 30 miles north of Ithaca.

A Rainy Time on Lake Cayuga

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I along with our best friends (another couple) spent a rainy weekend at Botanical Hill -- we didn't want to leave. Even with scattered showers we loved our time on this romantic property. Not only were the lake-front property and spacious apartment charming and accommodating, but the proximity to so many wineries and wine tastings helped us all sink into the vacation spirit! Also, it is a kid friendly place if you have little ones. We will definitely be back.

Botanical Hill

  • 5 of 5
Botanical Hills is a beautiful vacation rental. My family and I loved every minute of our stay. The property was very clean, very nice and very well-maintained. The owner is a delightfully friendly and accommodating person. It felt as if we were vacationing in our own private, gigantic, lakefront, nature park. We saw wildlife such as deer, fox and tree frogs. The landscaping was outstanding. We caught fish right of the spacious dock including pike, perch bass and rock bass. We enjoyed canoeing and kayaking on beautiful Cayuga Lake. Wine tasting is conveniently located up and down the street. I would definitely recommend this property and can't wait to get back again!

Owner's Response: I am delighted to receive such a glowing review from Rebecca's family. Botanical Hill is at it's best when being enjoyed by others. We have had 2 weddings on the property and continue to get rave reviews after the events.

Location

Activity and Interests

The dock and deck by the lake allow for swimming, boating, picnicing,

bonfires, and simple relaxation. A 2 seater boat called a kanuk is available for local paddling.

You're in the country now-with all that nature provides. Located on the west side of Cayuga lake, the sand and rocky shore lure the great blue heron to their rookery, ducks and geese also call it home. Eagles have been seen in the spring.

Bird watchers will enjoy the mile hike around the property to see more than 20 different birds.

Montezuma Nature Preserve is only 10 miles away.

Adventure bicycling in the Finger Lakes provides views (Cayuga Scenic

by-way), flat paths and hills to test your endurance.

Botanical Hill, once a vineyard, now claims the proximity to numerous

wineries on the Cayuga and Seneca Wine Trails. (read on)

Only 30 miles north of Ithaca, 20 miles to Geneva, 60 miles to

Syracuse or Rochester, puts several colleges and universities within easy visiting distance.

Numerous parks with waterfalls and hikiing trails are easily

accessible.

Many museums are within a short drive, including Seneca Falls Historical Society House, Seneca Museum of the Waterways and Industry, the Seneca County Arts Council, the National Women's Hall of Fame, and the Woman's Rights National Park . Convention Days in July commemorate the Women's Rights movement with visiting lecturers, dinners and many other activities.

Check out links to Ithaca, Auburn, Aurora, Waterloo and Geneva for more places to visit. The gorgeous gorges, old forests, race tracks, train rides, boat excursions, and charter fishing trips are within easy commute.

Abundant antique shops await your visit.
