Cayuga Lake Paradise


Property Details

Updated: Sep 18, 2016
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 5 Sleeps


The Lake is calling your name.....

Weeks are filling up-hurry or your desired week will be booked! Cottage on the lake with amazing views! Sip some Finger Lakes wines on the screened in porch or the large private dock. Roast marshmallows in the 'lake stone' handcrafted fire pit or take a kayak ride under the full moon. Whatever you choose to do the lake awaits your visit! The cottage has two bedrooms- one with a king sized bed and the other with a double and single bed. The kitchen has new appliances. Livingroom and diningroom have a wonderful view of the lake. Eat in or enjoy a short walk to a waterview restaurant. Put your boat in at the launch once and tie it up for the week! Cayuga Lake is the site of many of the largest Bass fishing tournaments in the country.

About the Owner

My husband and I bought the cottage in 1999 (fixer- upper fishermen's cottage). Many years and many hours have been spent hammering...sawing....painting...renovating...finally the lake cottage of our dreams emerged...watching our children grow, swim, fish, & explore during wonderful summers spent at the lake have been priceless.......

Very Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

The location was great. Beautiful lake views. Unfortunately the bug/wasp/slug infestation inside the house ruined our vacation. We killed 11 wasps, a few dozen water bugs, and disposed of 10 slugs that would present themselves on the kitchen floor at night during our one week stay. The bugs were the coffee machine, on the plates and cups in the cabinets, on the ceilings and walls, wherever you looked there was a black bug. We planned on making dinners in the kitchen but were forced to eat out every day because we just didn't want to chance getting sick. The owner seemed surprised when I spoke to her the first day about the wasps which surprised me since there were 3 full cans of wasp spray and a gallon of home defense bug spray in the house! Clearly a known problem that needs to be treated professionally which I suggested to the owner. How someone could rent a place with this gross infestation is unbelievable. I informed the owner that Donna was allergic to wasps and she did offer to have her caretaker take a look however I explained that unless he is a professional exterminator it's a waste of time. We would have left however there was nothing available on such short notice that week so we toughed it out and slept with the sheets over our heads as we listened to the wasps buzz overhead. During the day we tried to stay out of the house. At the end of the vacation after I received the security deposit back I texted the owner and recapped the horrible week that we had. I never received a response. Very disappointing.

Beautiful lakeside property

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to this property for the past 6 years. It is a wonderfully relaxing place... The water, sunrise, view, people..everything. Great restaurants within walking distance, but nothing better than sitting with a glass of wine at the end of the day overlooking the lake! Great amenities and family friendly.

Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to this cottage for the last couple of years. It is the perfect getaway for a family or group of friends. We love sitting on the dock all day and just enjoying the sun and the beautiful view of the lake. The screened in porch is the perfect place for your morning coffee. View from the master bedroom window is amazing. I love being able to walk to the restaurant up the road. We also visited another restaurant just a short drive down the road. Perfect place to enjoy a walk or bike ride. We also love going out in the kayak and exploring! A very relaxing and peaceful place. I always have a hard time leaving!

It was beautiful!!! The cottage is perfect for a small family, or a few friends wanting to get together. It is vary close to the wine trial as well which is also a great time. If you want a nice relaxing vacation, this is the place for you! The neighbors are also very nice.
