Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We spent the week here as a graduation gift to our oldest daughter. The home was a great set up, very well equipped, and clean. We enjoyed fishing almost every morning and evening in this very peaceful atmosphere. It was very easy to navigate to local attractions and there was enough to do to stay pleasantly occupied. The boat rental place and beach near by were very convenient. The only thing we wished would have been different was to be able to have swimming access right from the dock. Had we known of the amount of weeds in the water, we would have chosen to stay elsewhere. The home owner was honest about this though so we did know about it about a week before our visit. Other than that, everything else was perfect.

My husband and I recently stayed at The Lakehouse on Cayuga. This is a well-maintained and comfortable lakeside camp. Parking is quite limited but the owner makes you well aware of that fact before arrival. On the other hand, The Lakehouse is located only a short distance from Cayuga Lake State Park, so your guests can visit with no real parking inconvenience. Also at the Park is a public beach with lifeguard. Nice little restaurant within walking distance. Quiet neighborhood. Everything is very clean and in good working order, and instructions/information is accurate and clear. I'd certainly recommend The Lakehouse to someone looking for a quiet, restful vacation.

Very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most relaxing visit while we stayed in this lakehouse. The sun rises over Cayuga and welcomes you every morning. The house is located on a quiet street that is great for walking or jogging and is just a short distance from the state park. We had great accomadations for our annual visit to the wine region. Would definitely stay again.
