Gorgeous lake house
About the Owner
My husband is a Cornell Alumni and Ithaca holds a special place in his heart. Although we live in Brooklyn, we visit the house as much as we can and like nothing better than relaxing on the deck and enjoying the lovely sunsets.

Gorgeous lake house
Beautiful Lake House, Perfect Location
This home is huge. Each bedroom is a great size. There are three bathrooms which makes getting ready in the morning with several people very fast! The home is very clean. There are a lot of great bonuses like a card table and a pool table (which we used when it was raining). The dock that leads to the lake is a wonderful place to sit back and relax.
I have stayed at other lakefront homes in Ithaca and nothing compares to the size, location and cleanliness of this house.
Overall, A+ vacation. I can't wait to stay here again.
A great vacation house!
Great House, Location, and Vacation
The house is situated directly on Cayuga Lake with a beautiful view of the lake and Cornell Campus. The house was ideally located for our family with a 7-8 minute drive to the Cornell Campus, the Commons, nearby Cass Park (playground and pool - not yet opened when we were there), approx. 15 miles from the closest Cayuga Lake Winery, 8 miles from Taughannack Falls, 4 miles from Buttermilk Falls, and very close to a well equipped gym and Wegmans.
The house itself was very clean and spacious with 3 comfortable bedrooms, a large well equipped kitchen, huge living room with a pool table and flat screen TV (blueray and wifi), and multiple bathrooms with large tubs. Each bedroom had an AC unit. There were so many decks with great views and the backyard had a fantastic fire pit, hammock, and huge dock (2 picnic tables). We spent a lot of time jumping/swimming in the lake (a little on the cold side), lounging out, eating lunch, roasting marshmallows, and just enjoying the beauty of Cayuga Lake.
There were a lot of stairs to get to the house from the road and also to get to the backyard/lake, but we had no issues even with little kids (people who have trouble walking would have an issue).
We really loved the house and location and are already planning our trip for next summer.
Location, Amenities & More!Location, Amenities & More!
The main floor features three separate bedrooms and three full bathrooms - an ideal arrangement that allowed for everyone in our party to have their own private space. Downstairs contains a pool table and flat-screen HDTV, which both offered hours of entertainment.
The outside of the house is enveloped by an elaborate system of decks (the pictures truly don't do it justice) which leads down to the backyard, located directly on Cayuga Lake. Most of our time was spent outdoors in the backyard, which features a fire pit and hammock, or on the dock, where two picnic tables allowed us to enjoy our meals directly on the water.
When it came time to stock up on supplies, we were able to get from the house, into downtown Ithaca to do our shopping and back in well under an hour - a unique feat that can't be accomplished at most lakeside homes.
Of course, I would be remiss if I failed to mention that the house and surrounding property were spotless and the owner was extremely easy to work with. I'm happy to give a glowing review and recommendation of this house, and will definitely be keeping it in mind for myself when planning future getaways.
From the Owner
“The large outdoor area makes it ideal for a family vacation or celebration. The water is deep enough to dive into from the dock and the Farmer's Market is a short kayak ride away!”
