Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
A magical treehouse perched over its own gorge on Cayuga Lake. This place is special! There’s a giant porch wrapped around a 300-year oak tree and a lakeside tea house that can serve as an extra bedroom. There’s a dock, fire pit, room for yard games by the water, plenty of outdoor seating on the porch, by the lake, or on the dock. All of this is minutes from downtown Ithaca, Cornell, and Taughannock Falls state park. It’s also a great base to explore the Finger Lakes wine region.

The space
The core of the home dates from 1890 has been expanded over the years with a distinctive architecture that preserves the original elements of the home. The home is thoughtfully decorated in an eclectic style that ties you to Ithaca and the lake. There’s a well-stocked kitchen and plenty of places to entertain indoors and out.

For movie nights, there’s a high definition projector and 80-inch screen.

There’s off-street parking for three cars.
