Great location
95% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
We are happy to share this sweet lakeside cottage--our pride and joy. Come be uplifted and restored in an intimate retreat space with great light, lake views and water access at the southern edge of Cayuga Lake.
You will have the whole house to yourself. One bedroom upstairs, plus a sofa-bed in a “lake room” area that serves as a second bedroom with privacy curtains and sliding glass doors.

The space
As close to downtown as you can get and still be on the lake! Because it’s on the east shore of the lake, our cottage offers beautiful sunsets, easy access to Stewart Park, the Cayuga Waterfront Trail, the Cornell Sailing Center, Ithaca Falls, & the Farmer's Market. Cornell University is just one mile up the hill--without a single stoplight along the way! It’s a sweet spot for some R&R, so no matter how long you stay, you'll wish you had more time.

Guest access
You'll have the entire house to yourself. (wifi, kitchen, laundry, woodstove, smart TV, cable & BluRay)
Property also features a canoe and two kayaks, and shaded lakeside patio for relaxing and enjoying sunsets!
Swimming is not ideal in this very shallow and weedy southern end of the lake. It’s a 1/4 mile walk north (or paddle!) to a spot where locals swim with a small gravel beach.

Other things to note
This property is adjacent to a fairly busy roadway and an active railroad. Parking is limited to two vehicles in our private parking area. Train sightings are common in the evening--passing super close at very slow speed (>5mph) ...still, it’s impressive to be so close to so much power! Be sure to safely enjoy the romance of this close encounter.

This area of the lake used to be known as Port Renwick—a bustling place of commerce marked by long piers. Working boats of all kinds could be found everywhere. Now it’s a quiet residential micro-community. Big parties are absolutely not allowed here.
Slow down, be still...enjoy the lake, birds, boats and sunsets. Take a quiet paddle, a casual stroll to the park, or a bike ride. Breathe...enjoy.
