Spend your vacation in the tranquil elegance appointed at Peaceful Paradise! Perfectly designed with entertaining in mind, this incredible Cayuga Lake home features abundant space and visual grandeur hard to find in a vacation rental.  Completely renovated from ground up in 2019/2020 with new master bath, bunk room, air conditioning, doors/windows, and shiplap walls.

Nestled on the south east side of Cayuga Lake, Peaceful Paradise sits just above lake level and features breathtaking views of the water and surrounding hills, from the splendid balcony and porch areas. Peaceful sunsets, but yet close to the vibe and activity of Ithaca. Two perfect entertaining areas are yours to enjoy whether you're sipping your morning coffee, pouring a glass of afternoon wine or enjoying a BBQ with your family and friends.

Inside, the entry way to the right leads into the incredible great room. Featuring large windows facing the lake, the great room is ideal for entertaining guests of all ages, anytime of year. A well-appointed sitting area surrounds a gorgeous stone decorative fireplace and offers plenty of room to lounge comfortably, enjoying drinks before meals while taking in the spectacular lake view. Sharing the great room sitting area, the dining area also shares views of the lake. The open and bright kitchen features an island breakfast bar with seating and plenty of counter space for preparing and serving meals. 

Walk out to the spacious wrap around balcony, with plenty of furniture for enjoying the views and al fresco dining. 

Completing the entry level of recently remodeled Peaceful Paradise you'll find two of the four bedrooms and one full bath. Downstairs, the lower level boasts two additional bedrooms and the second luxurious full master bath.

Peaceful Paradise is midway between both Ithaca and Aurora making this the ideal location for each Cornell University, Ithaca or Wells College reunions, events, graduations or parent weekends.  A quick ride to Treleavan wines, Ithaca Beer Co and Brightleaf Winery.  Easy access to beautiful cycling routes and peaceful lake activities.  A variety of shopping, fine dining and fun can be had regardless of whether you're traveling north to Aurora and stop in at MacKenzie Child's and Fargo Bar & Grill, or 1833 Kitchen & Bar.  If the gorges of Ithaca are more your speed, travel south and hike Buttermilk Falls, shop along the Ithaca Commons, visit the acclaimed Ithaca Farmers Market or stop in for dinner at The Boatyard.

Great Week

Our group (8 adults and 2 infants) stayed here for a week and it was wonderful. The house is large enough for everyone to spread out if they wanted to but we spent the majority of time on the deck. We spent mornings out there using the sectional and table that seats eight. When we had too much sun on the dock, we would come up for lunch. We ate dinner out there each night. The rooms had everything we needed and the bathrooms were clean. We brought way too much stuff because we hadn’t anticipated how well stocked the house would be. They have pots and pans and cutting boards and basic spices. We also saw there were garbage bags and dishwasher tabs. We appreciated that there was laundry available for use, although the laundry room does have a bit of dampness. We took it in stride because it’s a lake house after all. There wasn’t dampness anywhere else. We would for sure stay here again.

The photos really didn’t do it justice. It’s really very well designed and well appointed. The photos, although fine, appeared more basic. But no complaints, the home was well appointed.

Exceeding your hopes

The pictures don't do this truly restful place justice. This home is comfortable from the moment you walk through the door. Close enough to Ithaca to enjoy restaurants and natural wonders while far enough to feel away from the hustle of daily life. Kudos to the owner and management team, the place is well appointed, well decorated and really has everything you need. For a family looking to relax - you've found it. The management team is supportive, friendly and professional. Really, you just can't beat the gracious size of the porch overlooking the lake - it was perfect.

Clean, spacious, great either indoors or outdoors. The 2nd bedroom on the upper level has the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in other than my own. Just a great place.

Just Right!

Provides something to entertain everyone. Canoes, paddle boards table tennis . Dock for fishing. Awesome views. Peaceful with trees and squirrels. Geese, ducks and other waterfowl on the lake. It is a bit of a hike down to the lake shore. I hope to return someday. So appreciate that the owners of this Peaceful Paradise are gracious enough to share it! God Bless you!

We picked the right house and the right season!

The house is newly renovated and wonderful. The interior is inviting and the water/railroad tracks view breathtaking. We had issues with water and property management sent someone out ASAP and the homeowners handled the situation very favorably. We hope to return.

The house far exceeded my expectations. It has all the amenities from home and a short walk to the lake. The kids spend most of the time swimming and paddle boarding on the lake. I will be going back for sure!
