Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Just 5 mins from downtown & 10 mins from Cornell + the best waterfall in town is a two-story sunny loft with floor-to-ceiling windows, a spiral staircase, 2 patios and a private dock!

The space
Featuring panoramic views on a loft perched high above Cayuga Lake w/access to a private dock, a fully stocked kitchen, & bright living spaces. There's a patio with a hammock for naps after a long travel or to observe the plethora of animals that live in our gardens and trees.

Make sure to bring a camera with you! Although the loft faces the sunrise (which is magnificent to watch if you're an early bird), the sky during sunset paints lush salmon colors w/speckles of gold & brushstroked clouds.

The owner of the property lives in the unit above the one you'll be staying at. She is a retired former NASA employee, an alumni of Cornell with a degree in Engineering, a certified Transcendental Meditation teacher, tends to her gardens on the property, and takes morning 'strolls' on her vintage rowing boat on the lake.

For bookings with 4+night stays, you may book a week-long Transcendental Meditation session where right above your unit, you can learn to meditate; a highly recommended practice by many successful people. In your message, please state your interest.

I am a tenant of the apartment and have thoroughly enjoyed staying here for a year now. I know this space intimately & represents a big part of me. I really, really enjoy this space a lot and so will you.

Where you’ll be

Ithaca, New York, United States

The neighborhood is a family-orientated neighborhood. While many of the lakehouses in the area, including ours, welcome guests and travelers of all kind, the atmosphere is very family friendly and we all collectively work together to maintain the homely feel.

We're centrally located: going north is Taughannock Falls, a short 5-minute drive. Another 5 minutes take you to Trumansburg & the beginning of the Finger Lakes wine trails. Going south is a 2 minute drive to Hangar Theatre, Cass Park & Treman Park. Another 3 minutes takes you to downtown.

Our neighborhood consists of paddleboarders, kayakers, boaters, sailers, & swimmers. We have a mascot named Jake who takes the form of a black furr-acious cat & likes to meander through the property from time to time as he makes his neighborhood rounds to say hullo to the fellow neighbors. He's not a stray so don't be alarmed. Jake has been trying to scheme his way into the house for years, but he is well-housed and well fed :] He likes to patrol & update himself with the happenings of the neighborhood and its neighbors.

In addition, we have many birds, squirrels, chipmunks & plant life that call our property home. Please be respectful to them. You'll likely to see many of the animals scurrying abouts or stopping by to peek in, including a woodpecker you'll likely be hearing during your stay.
