Why Joelle Stillions chose Ovid
We are on the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail right in the middle of route 89. This cottage is located on a quiet road with plenty of parking. About 150 feet of lake frontage and very private.
What makes this Cottage unique
Fall is arriving soon. This cottage is surrounded by the beatiful foilage around the lake. We are at the widest part of Cayuga Lake and can view 10 miles north of the cottage. Easy access to the lake. Campfires on the beach will be an experience to remember. Every morning enjoy the beautiful sunrise as well as the evening sunset.

Enjoyed a beautiful weekend on the lake. The views absolutely could not be beat and the fire pit on the beach was awesome. The only slightly negative thing I can say is that the description of the cottage as 3 bedrooms is a bit of a stretch. It is more like a 2 BR with a semi-private loft area. It wasn’t a problem for us but could be awkward depending on your group. Overall, great little place!
Wonderful weekend by the lake!
Cute little cottage by the lake with a back patio overlooking the water and stairs to a private beach area and dock. The cottage was sparkling clean with comfy beds and the kitchen was stocked with everything needed. Less than a mile to the next winery and we particularly enjoyed the barbecue and fire pit with provided wood on the beach. Kayaks were also provided along with water toys and life vests for fun hours on Cayuga lake. Would come back in a heartbeat! Bring a flash light - the steps down to the lake are unlit and treacherous at night!
Wonderful Cottage on Cayuga Lake
Stayed here with my husband, 2 toddlers, parents, and 2 siblings. 8 of us had a very comfortable stay and wonderful experience. The cottage was very clean and well-appointed - stocked kitchen, fully made beds, and bath and beach towels. Having the washer/dryer was very helpful with two young children, as were the air conditioning units on the warmer August days (although there was always a wonderful lake breeze). For my family, we most appreciated having a wonderful beach and dock access. Loved use of the kayaks, fire pit, and gradual beach into the lake. We hope to stay again soon!
Relaxing and Beautiful
This was the second year we stayed in this lovely cottage on Cayuga Lake. My family enjoyed the water activities and fires on the lake shore. Joelle was accommodating and the house was spotless. We hope to return again next year.
We absolutely loved Sheldrake Spectacular Cottage! It was roomy, had an amazing view of the lake, and was in a very quiet location with lots of privacy. The cottage was very well equipped with anything we needed. We have stayed at other properties and none had as many nice amenities as this one!
There were kayaks, life jackets of various sizes, flotation devices, a fire pit and wood! The owners were extremely nice and came running to our aid when we had trouble with our boat one windy afternoon. We are hoping to return to this lovely place next summer and highly recommend it !
The first things we noticed was how clean it was and it was more roomy than we expected from the picture. We had everything we needed including a crock pot that they purchased for us when we asked if there was one available. Lake was beautiful and relaxing. The road made for scenic walks and runs along the lake. Enjoyed each morning on the deck watching the lake. Highly recommended.
Near by Taughannock Falls State Park and Watkins Glen State Park. Wine tours available on the lake. Paddle boards, Kayak and Canoe Rentals available.
