My family and I love this little house, and the lake, and the area. We started here for a week and it wasn't long enough.
Charming with a great view.
This was a sweet cottage with a beautiful view. I loved the look of this home and the upstairs, built in beds. The owner was quick to communicate and helpful. We loved that it was close to nice trails.
Some things to know before selecting this location:
The lake is very large and is effected by the wind, which makes water skiing conditions very unpredictable but it does have a great boat lift and new dock.
Pack everything you would need as if camping. There is a nice Wagmans grocery store about 20 minutes away.
The mattresses are uncomfortable so consider sleeping bags or something with a lot of padding. Bring a fan if it is hot and extra blankets if it is cold.
There is one small bathroom with a small stall shower.
You need to take garbage to a specific dump station and get stickers for each bag at a local grocer.
These are some pretty good breweries close by and if you are a fan of wine we saw so many signs for wineries.
We loved local veggies and fresh eggs.
I hope this helps.
Vintage Charm found in the Finger Lakes!
What a charming place tucked away in the Finger Lakes! Even though the weather was rainy, we enjoyed the porch overlooking the lake. We come to the area every year and definitely will be back!
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!
