We have wifi high speed internet access and over 190 channels of cable TV and HBO movie channel and a DVR for pausing, rewinding, or recording your favorite shows during your stay. There is a brand new 42' flat screen TV with DVD player.

This is a family oriented neighborhood so no large parties or excessive noise allowed. Please contact us with any questions or if you would like to see more pictures of the house.

Please note: The access to the bedrooms on the second floor is via a spiral staircase. This may be difficult to navigate with infants and/or pets. The house is at the bottom of a steep driveway. In the winter the driveway is plowed as soon as possible. The driveway has been newly paved. Steps to the house and deck are cleared of snow prior to your stay. During the stay if it snows, shoveling is required. The driveway leads to a small shared parking area where we have two designated parking spots. Additional parking is available at the top of the driveway.

*IMPORTANT!* No trailers or boats are to be driven down the driveway. Trailers and boats can be parked in the parking area adjacent to the road at the top of the driveway.

Pleasant stay in Ithaca

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed or visit to Randall's lake house. Randall was clear in his communication, which ensured check in and check out was stress free. The house is in a great location -- minutes to downtown Ithaca yet right on the lake. We enjoyed using the kayaks. Best of all was coffee and sunrise on the deck.

A relaxing week at the Lakehouse

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lakehouse! The view was outstanding. Randall was incredibly helpful with any question or request. The location couldn't have been better for us to attend a family wedding in Ithaca. The kitchen was well equipped and the house was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub as well as the kayaks. Our dog, Pippin, learned how to ride in the front seat of the tandem kayak and was thrilled to watch the birds and sticks on the lake.

Nice lake house convenient to Ithaca, Watkins Glen and many nearby Parks.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at the lake. The dock had ample space to accommodate the 17' boat we rented as well as a fire pit to enjoy in the evenings. The deck provides a wonderful view of the lake. All the parks and neighboring towns were within a short drive of this location. The house had everything we needed for our week long stay.

We loved the area and will be returning soon.

The house was perfect for us. Central to many parks, the main town, and the wine trail, we were able to hit everything we wanted to without spending much time in the car at all. The house itself is clean and we'll maintained, and is perfect for those just looking to lay low and stay in as well with all amenities you could ask for in a lakehouse. We will be returning!

A great way to experience fall on Cayuga Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Full disclosure - I am an Ithaca resident. I have a lovely country farmhouse and a boathouse up the lake. Two of my friends wanted to descend upon Ithaca at the most beautiful time of year to experience the foliage and the gorges. I wanted them to have a great time, and I wanted a fun "staycation" away from my responsibilities at home. We also wanted to stay close to town for the convenience of restaurants and shopping. This house was perfect. The booking process was quick and easy. Randall (whom I did not know previously) was very responsive. Everything was as promised and in perfect order. The house was *very* comfortable for the three of us. The kitchen was better stocked than any other vacation home I have rented. The lake access and view were amazing. The hot tub was so welcome after a long gorge hike. This house really made our mini "vacation." I will *definitely* book this house for out-of-town friends in the future.
