“Step into Luxury” that’s our motto and that’s what is waiting for you at this completely remodeled 1865 era farmhouse located in the heart of Cayuga Lake’s Wine Trail. The Farmhouse, as we lovingly refer to it, is fully restored outside and freshly renovated and remodeled on the inside with the most discriminating taste in mind. Located in the heart of “Sheldrake-on-Cayuga”, a charming lakeside community that has been a recreation destination for more than 100 years; you can take a step back in time and enjoy the laid back lakeside community.
This charming Farmhouse is located within walking distance of Sheldrake Point Winery, Sheldrake Public Beach and Boat Launch, Water To Wine Tours, Busy Bee Market and O’Malley’s Lakeside Restaurant. Just a short 30 minute driving distance to Ithaca, Auburn, Geneva and Watkins Glen. The Farmhouse is the perfect vacation location to take advantage of both the Cayuga and Seneca Lake Wine Trails, Watkins Glen International Speed Way, and the many beautiful state parks and hikes in the Finger Lakes Region.
Sheldrake Farmhouse is located just 15 minutes from White Deer Tours (Seneca Army Depot); please see the attached video from CBS New Sunday Morning 12/28/18 for pictures of these rare and beautiful animals.
After taking advantage of all the recreation available in the Finger Lakes, the Farmhouse will provide an unparalleled oasis of comfort and serenity. The chef’s kitchen features Viking appliances, Caphalon cookware and plenty of room for multiple cooks and guests to gather and enjoy a meal or casual glass of wine and local cheese.
