Property Details

Updated: Oct 11, 2016
3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Lake-view, Cayuga Lake

A gorgeous, completely renovated, three bedroom house directly on Cayuga Lake but only minutes from downtown Ithaca. Our house has spectacular lake views, a modern floor plan and beautiful, high-end construction and details. Special features include a stoned faced fireplace, striking wide plank floors and modern kitchen with all new, modern appliances. First floor full bath and guest room. Upstairs you will be delighted with the master suite with more gorgeous lake views. Driveway is close to the front door. Private frontage and dock. Kayaks, Canoe. Fast internet service with wifi, A/C, Washer Dryer, two HD TVs, DVD player, gas fireplace, wine cooler.

Please read the reviews, tenants have been universally happy with the location, quality and cleanliness of the house.

Reasons to rent this house:

1) Its directly on Cayuga Lake with amazing views from the deck and dock, near wineries, and also only 5 minutes from downtown Ithaca restaurants and shopping, and less than 15 min. from the colleges.

2) It is completely renovated, modern and well built. The furniture is beautiful and new.

3) You can drive almost to do the front door, no major staircase to the house (as is common on Cayuga Lake). However, you must be able bodied and sure-footed. There is a path with a series of concrete steps.

4) There are 2.5 bathrooms, all with new glass tiles and beautiful details.

5) Two kayaks on the property, a canoe, private dock.

6) The house is big enough for two families to share. We have 3 bedrooms and a bonus room (with sleeper sofa), plus a sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress in the living room. We allow up to 10 adults and an additional 4 children, for a total of 14 guests.

Who Can Rent:

House is not appropriate for loud/late night parties. Also, sorry, the house is not handicapped accessible.

About the Owner

We are an Ithaca family of five. We lived on Cayuga Lake at our other listing, 887 Taughannock until our youngest was born. That property has been a vacation rental for 5 years. We just purchased 907 Taughannock because it is absolutely magnificent.

Great location, nice space

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently located and spacious home. Loved having canoes available. Stairs a little difficult for Grandma's arthritic knees, but we managed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for mentioning the houses two best features: the lake and the lake! We have two kayaks and a canoe for tenant use. The west shore of Cayuga lake is steep so there are a bunch of steps to the lake. See pictures.

Excellent place to enjoy Cayuga Lake and Ithaca

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot to relax and explore. We had two families (4 adults and 4 children under the age of 11) and everyone had a wonderful time. We enjoyed fishing, kayaking, cooking, and spending time on the porch overlooking Cayuga Lake. As an Ithaca College alumnus, I enjoyed reconnecting with Ithaca in a different way from my days as a college student. The location of this house is perfect because you’re only a 3-minute drive from downtown Ithaca. We were just minutes away from The Commons, College Town, Purity Ice Cream, Ithaca Bakery, Buttermilk Falls, and the farmer’s market.

Carolyn made sure the house was clean upon arrival. We had no complaints whatsoever with the condition of the house.

It should be noted there are a lot of steps leading from the road and house to the lake. If you’re in good physical condition, this is the perfect place to enjoy all of the amenities that Cayuga Lake and Ithaca have to offer.

Owner's Response: We love hearing that tenants enjoy the house. Our bakehouse is kept very clean. The location is perfect for a relaxing visit to Ithaca. Guests can fish, kayak, canoe, swim or just enjoy the view from our deck. It a great family vacation.

Fabulous stay for a multi-generational family!

  • 5 of 5

There were 7 of us - 4 adults and 14, 11 and 5 year olds. We chose Ithaca and Cayuga Lake as my son had attended Cornell and we wanted to return to his old "stomping grounds". EVERYONE had a super time. The open living area was great for gathering everyone together, but there were plenty of areas for everyone to have their own private space for reading and naps. All the living areas and the back deck overlooked the lake. Unfortunately I had to do some work, but I set up on the breakfast table overlooking the lake - what a way to work! A lot of time was spent at the dock. The kayaks and canoe were a bit hit and some tried fishing, but unfortunately, no luck! The location was a definite plus. So close to town, but yet so private. We made daily trips in to Ithaca and even a couple of late night runs to Purity for ice cream and Wegmans! We thought we would eat out more, but it was a treat to take turns fixing meals and dining with a water view - better atmosphere than any restaurant! I would highly recommend that if you are visiting the Finger Lakes to stay here. You are close to everything, but the Ithaca area is not overrun by tourists. Thanks, Carolyn!

Beautiful home with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

My family spent the days leading up to my wedding in Ithaca here and it was the perfect location. It is close to town, has a truly incredible view of the lake, and the house is beautiful. The open floor plan for the living room, dining room, and kitchen made it an especially nice house for all spending time together. We would all definitely stay again. Thank you for letting us enjoy your beautiful home! :)

We had a wonderful time at the house. It was close to walking trails, wineries, Cornell, and much much more. We will definitely return. We were there in early April so the weather did not permit us to access and play in the water but there was everything there if and when we return in the summer. Carolyn (the owner) was extremely nice. Overall wonderful place and experience. Thank you.

From the Owner

Our other rental house 887 is extremely nice by lake front standards, but this house, 907 Taughannock is nice by any standards. Everything is gorgeous, from the floors, to the windows, to the furniture, to the bathrooms. Even my parents will gladly stay at this house and they are some tough customers.
