90 feet of private lake frontage! Enjoy dinner on the screened in porch while watching the sunset. Roast marshmallows by the fire pit. Relax on the shore while the kids jump off the dock and swim in fresh water or float alongside on rafts and kayaks provided. Take a wine tour by boat. Hike the trails and see the waterfalls at our local state parks. Rent a boat from the marina next door. So many possibilities!
For couples, families with kids, friends, and water enthusiasts, this has it all!

The space
This property is ideal because of the huge, spacious yard leading to the private lake frontage. While the property has a sea wall and dock that is great for fishing, boating, and swimming there is also a shallow entrance for young children to walk in and perfect for launching kayaks and water rafts. There are no dangerous steps to the water just a gentle incline from the house leading to the lake with plenty of room to play! Located in the village, the property is .75 acres. There is a privacy fence between the home and the neighbor to the north and there is a natural wooded border between the house and the neighbor to the south.

This property also has access to public utilities (no wells or septic tanks) which is rare for Finger Lakes rentals.

Built in 1870 this older home has its original charm with hardwood floors, and lower ceilings (seven feet high) but it has been completely updated in its amenities. There is WiFi available throughout the house and there are three smart TVs in the house; two in the bedrooms and one in the living room.

The home also has a main level bedroom and walk in shower for those who require such.

The owners do not live on the property but are close by if you have any trouble. You have complete access to the entire property including the dock and waterfront. Two sit on top kayaks and several river rafts are provided... at no additional cost!! **Please note that by agreeing to the rental of the house you are also agreeing to read and adhere to the liability waiver associated with the use of aquatic equipment.

The home has air conditioning in every bedroom and living room. This home is available to rent year round as there is forced air heat throughout.

I do try to meet the requests of all my guests. If possible, I will allow late check outs and early check in times when it doesn’t interfere with other rentals (at no charge). Please note that this is usually not possible in the months of May through September due to back to back rentals.

The House:
Kitchen- Fully stocked with refrigerator, gas stove/oven, dishwasher, toaster oven, and microwave. Plus pots, pans, utensils, silverware, drip coffee pot, Keurig pod coffee maker, dishes, cups, glasses, wine glasses, cutlery, Pyrex dishes and everything you need to cook and eat in.

Kitchen nook- Convenient little space with table and seating for four.

Dining room- Round glass top table and chairs for 4, plus three additional kitchen chairs and two large cushioned chairs are provided in this space.

Living room- Full size futon, loveseat, and two arm chairs. Plus a 50” Roku television. **Please note the indoor fireplace does not burn real wood or produce heat.

Internet- Free unlimited WiFi!

Fully screened-in porch- Enjoy dinner with a great view without the hassle of bugs. The large table seats six comfortably. The porch leads to the concrete pad with grill access and overlooks the yards and lake. Always a guest favorite.

Bathroom- Large walk-in shower with spray hose which is convenient for bathing children. There are towels, washcloths, and hand towels provided for up to six guests. For those who may have forgotten, there is shampoo, conditioner, body wash and most all toiletries needed in stock. We keep a hairdryer, iron and ironing board in the house at all times. Also in this room is the top load washer and dryer. Laundry detergent and dryer sheets also provided.

Bedroom 1- Located on the first floor, this room has a queen size bed, 40” Smart TV, large closet with hangers, night stand, full length mirror and alarm clock with USB ports.

Bedroom 2- Located upstairs this room has a king size bed, 42” Smart TV, two bed side tables, built in bookshelf, and an alarm clock with USB ports.

** All beds come made with linens, comforters, pillows, throw pillows, and throw blankets (exactly as pictured)!

Outside- A huge yard leads to the lake at a gentle incline. No steps or stairs! There is a shed which houses the kayaks, river rafts and lawn games.

The house has three entrances. One is off of the small porch facing the lake which leads to the main door with keypad entry. A unique 4 digit code is given to guests prior to arrival.

Don’t forget the fire pit! Along with Adirondack style chairs this area is large enough for 6 guests to easily fit around. It's set up right by the lake for beautiful sunsets and roasted marshmallows.

We provide our guests with a charcoal and a propane grill for cooking in summer. Please provide your own charcoal and lighter fluid (although check ahead, some guests leave this behind). Propane is provided.

Parking- The driveway easily accommodates two large or three small vehicles plus road side parking affords room for 3 additional vehicles on the house side of the road.

- Two sit-on-top adult kayaks are provided. Life jackets, paddles, and whistles included.
- River rafts also provided. Read liability waiver in the rental rules.
- For more advanced kayakers and those looking for canoes, tandem kayaks, and stand up paddle-boards there is a local company who will rent these out and deliver to my guests. Please inquire.
- SmartTVs are all logged in with my Netflix account. Disney Plus is also available.
- There are sand toys in the sandbox.
- The outdoor game Corn Hole, Ladder Ball and Bocce are available in the shed by the house. Help yourselves!!

The property has a sea wall and boat dock with a ladder for easy swimming access. The seawall allows for the property to extend further out into the water than the surrounding neighbors. This enhances the serenity and beauty of the views.

The dock can be used to load and unload guests from a boat. A local company offers wine tours by boat. Since my home is directly on the way to the wineries the captain may pick my guests up at my dock. Please inquire for more information!

For over night mooring we recommend you keep the boat at the marina next door. It is a temporary dock so if the water is choppy or if you choose to moor overnight or in rough water we take no responsibility for damages to the boat and you would be liable for damages to our property or neighboring property if applicable.

Pontoon boats are available for rent for larger parties with advance reservations from the Marina next door.

I will gladly help you coordinate any activities!

I am a mother of two beautiful children. I work as a bookkeeper and an accountant but my favorite thing to do is host! I purchased this home in 2016 as an investment property and to give people a chance to experience the beauty and serenity of life on the lake. I encourage everyone to visit upstate NY! Whether at my home or one of the other fantastic homes listed in the Finger Lakes, there is nothing more beautiful than the summer and fall on Cayuga lake. Central NY has something for everyone! Please send me inquiries... I'd love to answer your questions!

During your stay

I will do my best to meet guests at the house for check in if they so desire, as long as they check in before 5pm. For those who do not require any assistance, the house has key pad entry. I will provide the code once check in time is confirmed. I am only ten minutes away so I am very accessible should any issues arise but I try to give my guests as much privacy as they want.
