Description Description

Blue Heron Shores rents as a property accommodating 12 guests from November 1 - April 30.  Beginning May 1 through October 31, enjoy a reservation at Blue Heron Shores Estate and accommodate guests up to an occupancy of 18 with an added guest house!

Filled with luxury and pristine views, Blue Heron Shores will charm your next Finger Lakes vacation!  Only minutes away from award-winning wineries, lakefront dining and thrilling year-round attractions, Blue Heron Shores is the perfect home to host your next Cayuga Lake getaway.

This beautiful estate, featuring a main house (the lodge) and a boat house, will have you in awe from the time you step in the doors. Knotty pine walls and exposed beams boast throughout all three floors of this beautiful Adirondack-style lodge. Inside the great room, large picture windows and a sliding glass door offer a breathtaking view of not only the water, but also of the cascading hills surrounding Cayuga Lake.  Regardless of the season, this view is timeless – offering either bright newly sprouted green leaves, vibrant autumn tones, or a snow-blanketed landscape – this is sure to be a view you’ll never forget.

A corner stone gas fireplace adds warmth and natural beauty to the south wall of the great room.  Enjoy a fire for those chilly nights, pour a glass of your favorite Finger Lakes wine, and relax in luxury on the comfortable sofa.

Inside the kitchen, find spacious counter tops and cabinetry stocked with a variety of cooking and eating ware.  Preparing your next meal will be a breeze.  Stop at a local farmers market and stock up on fresh produce and really “take a bite” out of the Finger Lakes!  Enjoy the balcony off of the entry level of this home and soak up all lake life has to offer from the privacy of the wooden deck.

Completing the entry level of Blue Heron Shores, one of the seven bedrooms can be found, the master bedroom with an en-suite full bath.  Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, a full bath with dual vanities and a loft with an office. The final two bedrooms of the main house, including a large bunk room and a bedroom with a king-sized bed, can be found on the lower level, along with another full bathroom.

The lower level is your retreat for fun and relaxation and is sure to be everyone’s favorite gathering space!  Enjoy playing a game of pool and visit with your friends and family in front of the cozy gas fireplace.

The fun doesn’t stop here!  Relaxing is made easy with a dip in the hot tub.  Relax in luxury and view the lake and wooded scenery in the distance.  A walkout lower-level patio will lead the way for the steps to the beach.  There’s endless ways to create memories when you’re at Blue Heron Shores!

Finally, as you wind down your day, enjoy s’mores and a glass of wine by the grand, outdoor stone fireplace.

Whether you’re coming for a wedding at Cornell University, a graduation at Ithaca College, wine tasting at award-winning Thirsty Owl Wine Company or Cayuga Ridge Estate Winery, exploring the natural gorges and waterfalls at Taughannock State Park, or spending the day in Ithaca for a day of boutique shopping, you can’t beat this ideal location.  Call us to book your Finger Lakes vacation at Blue Heron Shores!

This house was absolutely beautiful - even better than pictured. We had plenty of room for 10 of us. The location was also great close to wineries and Taughannock Falls.

The house was gorgeous and immaculate. The view was absolutely stunning. The only thing I wish we had been alerted to beforehand was that the driveway is extremely steep, and the first house is pretty far from the main property, with a long flight of stairs to get there. Overall, our expectations were exceeded and I would highly recommend this property to any large group.

Wonderful home - we had a group of 9 friends for thanksgiving here. It was perfect - fireplace, dining table, fantastic kitchen for cooking as well as gorgeous lake view with a hot tub overlooking the water. Perfect home!

A very quiet area of the lake, so if its serenity you're looking for, this home is very quiet and peaceful.

The property was gorgeous and beautifully appointed. Hot tub and outdoor firepit were amazing amenities. Location was excellent and it was so relaxing to watch the buffleheads on the lake. Cabin was extremely clean and was equipped with everything we needed, even a Ninja blender! Would absolutely love to stay here again!
