Description Description

The newly built Olver Farm Cottage welcomes you to experience a true Finger Lakes dream vacation.  Nestled only feet away from the shores of Cayuga Lake, this newly built lake home is a perfect blend of classic farm home and modern elegance.  Located midway between Ithaca and Seneca Falls, you’re ideally set for a variety of Finger Lakes fun!

Charming and welcoming, Olver Farm Cottage is perfectly built as a couple’s retreat, and offers the level of relaxation you’ve been looking for.  Inside the beautifully designed great room, the spacious interior gives you plenty of space to spread out.  Knotty pine ceilings span the length of the room and the view of Cayuga Lake is unforgettable.

The corner kitchen is home to beautiful white cabinetry and an island bar seating for two. You’ll be pleased to find the kitchen stocked with a variety of cooking and eating ware to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable, including a Keurig coffee maker.

Comfortable living room furniture arranged perfectly in front of the large, lake facing windows allow for enjoying the lake whether it’s a sunshine filled day, or a rainy-day in.

On opposite ends of the great room, you will find two spacious bedrooms, both furnished with king size beds. The master bedroom has an attached ensuite bath, while the second bedroom has a respective bathroom across the hall.

Step outside to the wrap around deck.  The crisp Finger Lakes air and the sound of waves crashing along the shoreline are reasons why you’ll immediately see yourself returning year after year.  Spend your days fishing off the dock, swimming and soaking up the sun.

The location of Olver Farm Cottage is sure to exceed your expectations!  Ample Finger Lakes activities are available in any direction you head.  Head south toward Ithaca and plan a hike at Taughannock Falls.  Stop at the Cayuga Lake Creamery for a homemade ice cream treat before heading home.  An afternoon in Ithaca could have you walking, shopping and dining along the streets of the Common’s, or enjoying another hike at Buttermilk Falls.  A trip north will offer a variety of local cuisine like Café 19 or 84 Fall.  A history lover may enjoy a visit to the Women’s National Rights Museum on Fall Street.  Olver Farm Cottage is conveniently located along the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail!  Wineries like Hosmer and Thirsty Owl are only minutes away.  Make your reservation and start planning your getaway at Olver Farm Cottage today!

It’s very easy to view and pick properties on the Finger Lakes Rentals website. I’ve used them a number of times now, and I’ve never had an issue with the rental process.

Beautiful Cottage
We really enjoyed our time here. This home is in the perfect location for visiting wineries and parks. It?s so nice and clean ? and that view can?t be beat. We loved looking at the water and trees from both inside and outside. The "master" bedroom, closet and bathroom are bigger than my first apartment! The kitchen had everything we needed too. We will definitely stay here during our next visit!

Lovely property. The view is amazing. All appliances are brand new and in great working order. We had an issue trying to use the dryer (operator error) and we called the owners. They responded quickly and helped us figure out the problem.  We found the location to be central to everything we wanted to do and see. We would definitely stay at the property again.

The view was fabulous. The home was decorated nicely, clean, comfortable and had a great deck and dock. The cinder gravel was a bit challenging for the 2 who used crutches and a walker.

We had a wonderful time staying at Olver Cottage. Absolutely beautiful home; perfect for two couples! The owners, Lisa and Neil made a last minute accommodation that made our stay even better --- and this was a huge request! We walked into this brand new home and were blown away by the wall of windows providing a stunning view of Cayuga Lake. Step outside onto the lovely deck and just enjoy the views. Truly such a relaxing way to spend some time while soaking up the beauty of the lake. The bedrooms were large, the living/dining/kitchen area was very spacious and well appointed. And everything you needed to cook your meals was provided. There are numerous wineries just a few minutes from the house and the area in general is just gorgeous. We would absolutely rent again and feel honored to have been the first to stay in this beautiful home.
