Quintessential Finger Lakes Cottage
Simply Charming! A quaint cottage that sits on a beautiful property along Cayuga Lake. This 1930's lake house is a rare find so be prepared to unwind, relax and enjoy. Thanks for a great week and lovely stay Susan!
Great Place for Graduation week at Cornell.
This was a great place to stay during the crazy rush of graduation at Cornell. Very relaxing, and we were able to avoid the crowds and traffic of Ithaca. We just loved sitting on the porch in the mornings and evenings and taking a break from the busy graduation schedule. We also enjoyed kayaking on the lake. Beautiful area and thank you to the owners for a wonderful stay!
Clean, comfortable, and welcoming!
I needed some alone time and chose the perfect place and time (a week before Cornell graduation and beginning of summer season)! I was practically alone on the block but felt safe and right at home. The cottage is stocked with just about everything anyone might need.
The owner was very responsive to emails (within 24 hrs) and we communicated quite a bit before my stay.
I enjoyed driving into Ovid for groceries and shipped home a case of wine from Lucas Vineyards (right up the road) to remember my visit until I return!
I highly recommend the cottage to anyone but particularly adults looking for respite. There is a steep metal staircase that might make parents of little ones nervous.
Please respect this family's treasure that they are kind enough to offer and I hope it is here for years to come!
Charming Cottage with Stunning Views
Our family absolutely loved staying at this well kept, clean property. We were first intrigued by the winding dirt road down to the property. It was surrounded by woodsy, mature trees and a few other pretty cabins. It was peaceful and quiet upon our arrival. The owners provided us with a snack and a lovely local bottle of wine. We were stunned by the lake views from the porch and sleeping quarters. In fact, we took turns sleeping on the porch during the week! The 2nd floor with it's built in beds was charming! We enjoyed the café table at the end of the boat dock each and every morning. I spent one morning reading there as my family came by on rented paddle boards and kayaks. There was so much to do---but staying put and relaxing was just as enjoyable! We went into Ithaca several times to visit our daughter at college and get her set up. We hiked and went to many wonderful restaurants. Back at the cottage when we needed to rest, there was a good sized table on the porch for game night and a nice sized yard for Frisbee. Thank you Susan for your hospitality.
The property was exactly as it was described online. Very clean and well maintained.
If you look for a tranquil and serene place to stay for a day or a week this is it. Very close to the wineries (Cayuga Lake Wine Trail )and local restaurants and bistros. The property owner was impeccable in the way they treated us. We will definitely be returning and recommending this to our friends, family and colleagues.
The location and views are beautiful. The cottage is better than advertised with plenty of space for a week of relaxing. Sleep inside or enjoy listening to the waves by sleeping on the porch.
The beach is perfect for younger kids while the dock is great for older ages.
Highly recommend this property.
