Enjoy the peace and serenity to be found at Cayuga Escape on your next vacation! This stunning, custom lake house features some of the most spectacular views of the lake, and is conveniently located midway between Ithaca and Seneca Falls on Cayuga’s popular west side.
The winding, gravel drive leads through the woods and along the edge of the lake. Since the driveway is steep as it descends down to the water, it is recommended guests use all wheel drive or 4x4 vehicles to access the home. Located near the end of the road, there are only a few other cottages nearby, providing a feeling of seclusion to guests who desire a quiet and relaxing vacation.
Parking is along the lakefront breakwall for 2-3 vehicles. The staircase to the south of the house leads up to the covered patio overlooking the lake, where guests can enjoy watching the lakefront activities while keeping cool on those hot summer days. Another set of steps leads up to the first floor entry, which opens into a custom hickory kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, and a dining table that seats four overlooks the lake and covered porch. The side entry leads out to the porch, where guests can enjoy barbecuing and outdoor meals on the upscale Adirondack style furniture provided. A full bathroom with a shower is located just off the dining area in the rear of the house.
A spiral staircase leads to the second and third floor living areas. The second floor features a lovely living room overlooking the lake, featuring a comfortable sleeper sofa and two chairs for lounging and watching TV. A queen bedroom and a full bathroom with a garden tub are located in the rear.
The third floor of the cottage consists of a spacious, loft style second bedroom. With huge windows overlooking the lake, guests in this room will enjoy a truly remarkable feeling of waking up on the water to breathtaking sunrises.
Cayuga Escape is located just minutes from Ithaca attractions and is right on the renown Cayuga Lake Wine Trail.
