vacation rental description

We just had a cancellation for the week starting 6/7.  Please note that we are offering this at a discount.   Additionally, nights in May are available for $100/night.  Many thanks to our guests!

P.S.  We have just added an Otter Island Swim Raft and a Sunfish Sailboat to our suite of fun things at our dock.  See picture in photo gallery.

Thanks for your interest in the cottage... 

 The cottage is located just south of King Ferry on the east side of the lake and sits on 101' of lake front. You can throw a stone from the cottage into the water, however, we do have steps between the cottage and the water. You can also drive directly to the water via a lane way. The dock and storage shed occupy the flat area at the base of the bank.  At the top of the bank is a very large deck that offers wonderful views as does the long screened in porch on the front of the cottage.

We have enlarged our dock to 60' that includes a 20' x 20' deck with swim ladders at the end.  Half of the deck is covered.  It features a swinging bench from the roof.  Two options are available for securing a boat.  A 14' row boat, double seat sea kayak, and Sunfish sailboat are available.
Please note that the owners home is located at the back of the property.  The owner may occasionally make use of the dock or deck facilities.  Capt. Steve is a fishing guide so you may want to ask a few angling questions!

Well behaved dogs allowed.  No cats please.

In case of cancellation, deposit is refunded anytime we can re-rent the cottage. Otherwise, the deposit is forfeited.

 

Directions to the cottage:

If coming from Ithaca:

Take Rt. 34 North and travel up the long hill along the lake until you come to a "T" in the road. An abandoned Citgo gas station will be on the left hand side. Turn left at this point and you will then be on Rt. 34B North. Follow Rt. 34B North about 7 miles to the hamlet of Lake Ridge. Lake Ridge is just north of the Cayuga Operating Company power station that you will see on the left. After you see the sign for Lake Ridge (the hamlet), look for the Lake Ridge Rd. which angles off to the left. Take a left onto Lake Ridge Rd. (A boat yard is on your immediate right once you are on Lake Ridge Rd.) You will pass Cuddeback Rd. and then Nut Ridge Rd. on the left. After passing these you will come to a four way stop at Atwater Rd. Take a left on Atwater Rd. Atwater Rd. will curve left at 90 degrees and then turn right at 90 degrees. Proceed through these turns and then pass by Brooks Rd. on the left. The next road to the left is Middlecott Rd.  (You will also see our "Knapp" sign over the mailboxes) Turn left onto Middlecott Rd. Rabbit Run Rd. (gravel lane) then turns almost immediately to the right from Middlecott Rd. Follow this to the end and you will be at the guest cottage. The cottage is stained dark brown with Adirondack red trim.

If coming from Syracuse:

Determine the best route to take to Auburn. This may involve taking the Thruway to exit 40 (Weedsport) which would put you on Rt. 34. You would then take Rt. 34 south to Auburn. Or, you may choose to take Rt. 5 to Auburn until you reach the intersection with Rt. 34. In either case take Rt. 34 heading south out of Auburn.

Approximately 7 miles south of Auburn in the town of Flemming, take a right hand turn on Rt. 34B. (Note that 34B starts here so that you cannot turn left on 34B even if you wanted to.) Follow Rt. 34B for approximately 15 miles south until you reach the small village of King Ferry. Continue through the intersection (stop sign only) staying on Rt. 34B South. As you proceed south about 1.5 miles, the first road on your right will be Center Rd. The next road you encounter about 1 mile further will be Atwater Rd. Atwater Rd. is marked with a sign, but is easy to miss. (If you pass an abandoned Agway store then you have just missed Atwater Rd.)

Take a right hand turn on Atwater Rd. You will be heading west at this point. Proceed west to a stop sign. This is the intersection with Lake Rd. Go through the intersection staying on Atwater Rd. Atwater Rd. will curve left at 90 degrees and then turn right at 90 degrees. Proceed through these turns and then pass by Brooks Rd. on the left. The next road to the left is Middlecott Rd.  (You will also see our "Knapp" sign over the mailboxes) Turn left onto Middlecott Rd. Rabbit Run Rd. (gravel lane) then turns almost immediately to the right from Middlecott Rd. Follow this to the end and you will be at the guest cottage. The cottage is stained dark brown with Adirondack red trim.

If coming from Buffalo:

Proceed east on the New York State Thruway (I-90) and take the Waterloo exit (Exit 41).  At the end of the exit ramp, turn right.  At that point you will be heading south on Rt. 414.  Stay on  414 for only about a block or so.  You will shortly come to the junction with St. Rt. 318.  Turn left on 318 heading south-east and go to the end of 318 in about 4 miles.  Rt. 318 ends at a 5 corner intersection.  Turn left at this point and proceed east on combined St. Rt. 5/U.S. 20.  You will travel east on this combined route for about 1.5 miles to the junction of St. Rt. 90.  Turn right on Rt. 90 and drive south along Cayuga Lake.  You will pass though several small towns including the town of Aurora.  Shortly after you leave the town of Aurora, you'll pass a road veering to the right called Lake Rd.  Do NOT take this Lake Rd.  Stay on Rt. 90 until just before King Ferry.

You will reach a 90 degree turn in Rt. 90 to the east just outside of King Ferry.  If you continue straight on a town road at that point you will be on Lake Rd.  Stay right, and take Lake Road at this point.  Pass by the Triangle Restaurant on your immediate left and come to the stop sign.  Go straight south on Lake Rd. until you come to the next stop sign.  This is the junction with Atwater Rd.  Take a right on Atwater road proceeding west towards the lake.

After turning right onto Atwater, the road will curve left at 90 degrees and then turn right at 90 degrees. Proceed through these turns and then pass by Brooks Rd. on the left. The next road to the left is Middlecott Rd.  (You will also see our "Knapp" sign over the mailboxes) Turn left onto Middlecott Rd. Rabbit Run Rd. (gravel lane) then turns almost immediately to the right from Middlecott Rd. Follow this to the end and you will be at the guest cottage. The cottage is stained dark brown with Adirondack red trim.

traveler reviews for this cayuga lake cottage rental

Wonderful week in a wonderful cottage

Review submitted: August 29, 2012   Date of arrival: August 18, 2012

We spend the week at the Knapp cottage and had the best time balancing between family time with the kids on the lake and romantic nights with wine and cheese we picked up at the locals wineries.
The tomatoes from Steve’s garden were the sweetest ones we ever had, and our dog had a great time playing with storm (Steve’s dog)
Thank you Steve for your hospitality,
We will be back in the future

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: We were pleased to have Janet and her family join us for a very pleasant week. Although we don't always have ripe organic cherry tomatoes, we always try to personalize each cottage visit and serve the needs of our guests. My dog Storm is also pleased to receive a very kind review. ;-) We hope these nice folks make their way back from New Hampshire sometime in the future.

Knapp Guest Cottage

Review submitted: August 7, 2012   Date of arrival: July 28, 2012

perfect cottage for our week with friends. quiet neighborhood. perfect beach, excellent dock, excellent access to Cayuga Lake. Plenty of hiking, but limited bicycling unless you are willing to start with a hill climb. Close enough, but not too close to Ithaca.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: We were delighted to have Cindy and her friends spend the week. More and more the Knapp Cottage is used to provide a base for family reunions and a venue to reunite friends. Both the deck and dock facilities can accommodate a good number of visitors and seems to be an ideal place to relax and reminisce. We are thankful for Cindy's review and hope to continue our consistent 5 star rating from our guests.

Knapp cottage King Ferry

Review submitted: January 10, 2012   Date of arrival: June 25, 2011

My family has stayed at Knapp cottage for a number of years. We find it to be a great value. The dock is great and the kids love the access to the water. Beautiful sunsets. Very quiet, bring a book.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children

Owners response: We are very thankful to have Pat's review online. Pat and his family are some of our regular guests-- having stayed at the cottage for many years. I should note that a picture of Pat is on the web site. He is the one holding a 9 lb. landlocked salmon caught aboard my boat straight out from my dock. Others have caught large salmon recently trolling the upper 30 feet of water in the weeks preceding July 4th. Pat reported that the salmon was delicious!
