About the Owner
Life on the Lake Made Perfect!
Wow; the cottage on the lake exceeded all of our expectations in our family of four. From the moment we arrived, it felt like home to us. The screened-in porch overlooking the lake was especially an added bonus to our stay. We were not only impressed by the spectacular view, but also by the fact we had our own private beach. Many of our most memorable evenings during our stay were spent sitting on the beach by the pit fire viewing the moonlit lake. Our college-aged child greatly enjoyed the privacy and amenities of the guest cottage. Lastly, Janice was very hospitable and accommodating both before and during our stay.
Perfect vacation rental for the family!
Lake front Cottage- is a perfectly comfortable vacation home on Cayuga Lake. It has everything you need and then some..for a fun filled time on the lake. The home is spacious and has ample bedrooms and bathrooms for a larger family. The main house and added cottage across the street allow for flexible lodging. Our one daughter loved sleeping on the screened in porch falling asleep to the stars and waking to the sun! The home is so well equipped and seems to have everything you need. We especially enjoyed the fun professional-level popcorn machine for late night card games or movie watching.
Janice make the rental process very easy and is accommodating with your special requests. It is hard to leave the lake but if you do, yummy restaurants and wineries are all nearby.
We look forward to staying there every summer.
Father's day weekend
We rented the cottage for a three-day Father’s day weekend and it was wonderful. My two sons and my nephew all in their 20’s started the day on Saturday hiking at Buttermilk Falls State Park. We followed that with a trip to Ithaca to check out the shops on the pedestrian mall, which they call the “Commons”.
We had lunch at the “Ale House” followed by a couple of beers and a few games of pool at the “Chanti”. On the way back we stopped to see Taughannock Falls. We then headed back to the cottage for dinner and cards out on the porch.
On Sunday we went to the “Buttonwood Grove” for wine tasting it’s just down the road. They had live music on the patio with a great view of the Lake. Then back to the cottage for canoeing and paddle boats along with fishing off the dock.
On the way home on Monday we stopped at Three Brothers for a tasting and the we stopped at Ventosa Vineyard for lunch which was very good again with a nice view on the patio.
Janice was very accommodating and easy to work with. We had a great time and my sons and nephew are pushing me and my brother to commit to a return visit so I’m sure we will be back soon and we are looking forward to it.
This is the second time we rented the cottage and studio - both times for Cornell's graduation week. We loved staying here the first time in 2014 and the second time in 2016 was like coming home. Age range for us was 16 through 83 and everyone was happy. Gramma could easily navigate the cottage as there is only one set of stairs that lead to the water outside. The screened porch is the heart of the house (nicely placed far enough from the bedrooms so the kids can stay up late and not keep the adults awake!) Having the additional studio across the street is such a bonus! Take advantage of the linen service. The lake is beautiful and an easy run in the morning. So many wineries! Janice is wonderful to work with and very efficient. You'll love it here!
Lovely Lakefront Home
Our family had a wonderful, relaxing time at this lakefront home. The screened in porch was our absolute favorite place for morning coffee and evening board games. The access to the lake was perfect for boating and swimming. It's in a great location and we enjoyed checking out some of the local attractions like MacKenzie Childs, Taughannock Falls and Ithaca Commons. This is definitely a home we would be interested in renting again!
Perfect for our Family Vacation!
Our family was looking for a central location for our vacation. We are coming from Syracuse, Rochester and Batavia. This house and guest cottage are absolutely perfect for our stay. It is conveniently located and easy to get to. It is close to several wineries and there is plenty of places to go and eat in case the weather is not cooperating. The 2 level enclosed porch is absolutely beautiful and inviting to spend your day relaxing and enjoying the beautiful lake. The level lake front and big dock made the kids really enjoy themselves throughout the week. The fishing off the dock was great and a the water was very refreshing!
The owner is a fantastic person and is very accommodating!! We look forward to coming back every summer!
