vacation rental description

Beautiful three bedroom single family home located in the Town of Ithaca. For vacationers who want a beautiful location, but don't want to spend an hour in the car to buy groceries, our location is ideal. Close to shops & restaurants. We are only 5 minutes to Downtown Ithaca and ten minutes to Cornell, but it is a world apart. Private lot with private dock and private swimming and grass area down by the lake. HD TV, Wireless Internet, A/C. This may be the nicest kitchen in any rental you will find. Kitchen has sliding glass doors to large lakeside deck. Cherry floors, granite countertops, pendant lights, dishwasher, garbage disposal, oversized fridge, eat-in table with seating for seven. Gorgeous views from almost every room, including 8 windows in the livingroom, 3 in the master bedroom, 3 windows and a three paneled sliding glass door in the kitchen and a 6 baywindow and large picture window in the downstairs bedroom. The house has been completely modernized and renovated. It is not a musty lake rental! Hardwood floors and beautiful finishing touches everywhere. You will not walk in the front door and be disappointed. All kitchen items (pots, pans, dishes) and sheets included.  Renters bring their own towels.


Master w/ King Bed

Bay Window Room w/ Queen Bed

Purple Room w/ 3 Twin Beds (2 may be pushed together)

Testimonials from before the website took reviews (we have been doing this a long time!):

August 2009 "Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home.  It was absolutely delightful and incredibly relaxing.  Seeing Ithaca and Cornell again was a sight for sore eyes."  LT

June 2009: "Hi Carolyn.  We love the house -- it is everything promised -- and are having a great time."

From March 2009 "Ms. Greenwald: I just wanted you to know we had a great time in Ithaca during our stay two weeks ago.  It was a really nice get away.  There is really a lot to do in the area.  Your house is beautiful and I see now why you had such a hard time leaving!  Thank you!" N.R.

House is professionally cleaned between tenants. Tenants are asked to bring up and tag garbage on Tuesday evenings. (Tags provided). Tenants are asked to leave the house 'broom clean.'

Who Can Rent:
House is available to one or two families but no more than 2 sets of unrelated persons (one family, two families, 2 friends, one couple, etc). It is a quite area and is not appropriate for loud/late night parties. The west shore of Cayuga Lake is steep (which is good because the east shore has a railroad running behind all the homes) and all tenants and guests must be able-bodied and sure-footed.

Please note that this house is already rented for IC and Cornell graduations 2013.

PLEASE CHECK CALENDAR BEFORE EMAILING.  If you don't hear back from me, its because you didn't check the calendar.  Otherwise, I always respond promptly. Thank you.

traveler reviews for this cayuga lake house rental

Excellent stay

Review submitted: November 27, 2013   Date of arrival: November 22, 2013

What a wonderful stay at this house on Cayuga Lake. The house and view were just perfect. It was so nice to have a private house right on the lake and with everything included. The house is very up to date and clean which made it even better. The pictures are one thing but seeing it in person is so much better. I give it A+++++++. Also the owners were a pleasure to deal with and would recommend this house to anyone.

Owners response: Thank you for your kind review. I am so glad you enjoyed the house and the view. I agree that it needs to be seen in person. However, it is always a pleasure for me to hear from tenants that the house exceeds their expectations and the view is even better in person. We hope to hear from you again. Carolyn

Ultimate in relaxation

Review submitted: November 23, 2013   Date of arrival: November 14, 2013

The house is beautifully laid out and furnished, with stunning views on both floors of Cayuga Lake. Cooking breakfast looking out on the lake, and then dining out on the dock was serene to say the least. Carolyn was very helpful in coordinating the stay and working with me prior to arrival. I highly recommend a week in Ithaca!

Recommended for: families with young children, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you for your kind review. I also recommend a week in Ithaca! The house is designed so that it is easy to enjoy your meals out on the deck overlooking the lake. That is probably my favorite feature of the house. We hope to see you again.

Great Vacation

Review submitted: April 11, 2013   Date of arrival: April 2, 2013

This was our second stay at the house and we will definitely be back. The house was in great condition and we would highly recommend it.

Recommended for: families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you for your review! Return tenants now make up a significant portion of our rentals and we truly appreciate the loyalty. It is very gratifying to know that renters have enjoyed the house, the lake and the property and wish to return again. We could not be more pleased to hear it. Plus, the house is always improving so each time you return you will find something new to enjoy. Best, Carolyn & Adam
