The Point

 Still available:  Ithaca College Graduation and Cornell Reunion!

   Many people believe that ours is the best spot on Cayuga Lake, bar none.  We do too!  It's not quite an island in the middle of Cayuga Lake, but it is as close as you can get!  A unique location: The house sits at the tip of Myers Point, the largest point on Cayuga Lake.  The way the lake angles places our property nearly in the middle of the lake. We look south 6 miles straight down the lake to Ithaca, and then north 3 miles across the lake to the point of Taughannock Falls State Park. You are surrounded by the lake on the North, West and South sides. There is even a private pond/cove on the East side of the property connected to the lake, and we are within easy walking distance to Myers Park, where kayaks  and other water toys can be rented.  There are no tall or rickety stairs to navigate between parking, the house, and the lake itself, as are found with many of the lake houses on the southern half of Cayuga Lake.  Just drive right up; plenty of lawn for the kids to run around.  It doesn't get much easier than this: 1.4 very private acres of level lake access.

     The cottage is a single-level, ranch style, fully insulated house that provides three bedrooms, and 1.5 bathrooms for your visit. The bathrooms are small and modest, representative of the architecture when it was built, but clean and functional with updated fixtures. With everything else to do and see, who wants to spend a lot of time in the bathroom anyway!?! The living room has several comfortable couches for curling up with a good book or a game on a rainy day. Flat screen TV with basic cable. Wifi internet access provided.  Sleeping arrangements available for 7 guests.  Bedroom 1 contains an eastern king bed. Bedroom 2 contains one queen bed and one twin bed. Bedroom 3 contains a queen bed.
