Throughout the house, five bedrooms are yours to choose from.  Whether you’re upstairs or down, each bedroom is designed with luxuries and comfort to make you feel right at home.

The lower level of this large family home has been converted into a game room – likely proving to be one of your favorite rooms of this home!  Challenge your travel mates with a game of pool or foosball and sip on a glass of your new favorite Finger Lakes brew.

Off the living space on the entry level, the lakeside porch offers seating for enjoying your morning coffee while watching the lake in the distance.  Off the lakeside porch, a large yard overlooks the beautiful grounds.

At the lakefront; a gravel path leads to the pebble lake entry where you’ll be able to enjoy the cool waters of Cayuga Lake.  This is perfect for both younger and older travelers alike!  Enjoy your days soaking up the sun on the expansive deck area.

Perfect place for a two family gathering

We stayed here with four adults, four kids, and a baby. It was the perfect size for us to all have our own space, but also provided space for family time. The games in the basement were a hit. We were also pleasantly surprised to find an actual crib in one of the bedrooms. The owners were responsive to questions and concerns, and we had a lovely experience all around!

Family getaway

The house had enough bedrooms and bathrooms to make 12 people comfortable. The kitchen needs some updates as well as mattresses and pillows. The basement had a fun game room with several different things to do. Overall we were very happy with our stay.

The facility was excellent. We all loved it. A fire pit would be a good addition.

The overall experience was good. The facility was excellent. The communal space was well thought out and provisioned generously. The kitchen was really well equipped. The games room was fantastic and the children had hours of amusement there. The kayaks were great too- it is a fantastic all round stay. The lack of flexibility around check out was disappointing considering the price. Check out is too early.
