Renovated, modern three bedroom house directly on Cayuga Lake but only minutes from downtown Ithaca. Our house has spectacular lake views, a modern floor plan and beautiful, high-end construction and details. Pet Friendly, Kayaks, Canoe provided. There is an easy path with 21 stairs from the lower parking to the house. The upper parking is accessed with a brand new staircase with 52 steps.

We rent only Saturday-Saturday in summer.

The space
Reasons to rent this house:

1) Its directly on Cayuga Lake with amazing views from the deck and dock, near wineries, and also only 5 minutes from downtown Ithaca restaurants and shopping, and less than 15 min. from the colleges.

2) It is renovated, modern and well built.

3) There are many steps to the lake but unless it is winter, you can drive relatively close to the front door (21 step path). In winter, parking is by the main road, not the house. Access is via brand new staircase with 52 steps.

4) There are 2.5 bathrooms, all with new glass tiles and beautiful details.

5) Two kayaks on the property, a canoe, private dock.

6) The house is big enough for two families to share. We have 3 bedrooms and a bonus room (with sleeper sofa), plus a sleeper sofa with memory foam mattress in the living room. We allow up to 8 adults and an additional 2 children, for a total of 10 guests.

7) House is professionally cleaned between tenants.

Who Can Rent:
House is available to one or two families but no more than 2 sets of unrelated persons (one family, two families, 2 friends, one couple, etc). It is a quiet area and is not appropriate for loud/late night parties. No additional guests are allowed on the property.

Summer rental is Sat-Sat, 7 nights only

Winter Guests: We deliver property with shoveled steps. Thereafter tenants are responsible for snow removal. Guests may not be able to access the lower parking area, so all tenants must be able bodied and able to walk stairs easily.

Wifi is upgraded to Spectrum Ultra which has download speed of 400 Mbps and upload speed of 20 Mbps.

Please note: All adult tenants in the group will be required to sign a separate written license agreement.
