Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Enjoy our two-bedroom rustic cabin just a few minutes from Cornell University and Ithaca College.

Surrounded by magnificent hemlock trees and nestled on the hillside above Lake Cayuga, the cabin also has a shale beachfront and dock with use of the kayaks, canoe, and boathouse.

You can focus on water sports or use the cabin as a base for exploring the spectacular scenery (the gorgeous gorges are just minutes away), wineries, restaurants, colleges, museums, Watkins Glenn activities and other treasures of the area.

Although you are only minutes from all that Ithaca has to offer (including Wegman's!), the cabin is a world apart: you feel as though you are in a treehouse--surrounded by hemlocks and rhododendren. A walk down the hillside brings you to the shale beachfront and access to Ithaca's most stunning asset: 40-mile long, 600+ feet deep, glacier-formed Lake Cayuga.

A big advantage of the cabin is its location on the lake but in Ithaca. Most Cayuga Lake cabins are 20-35 miles away from the Ithaca attractions.

We live in the large house on the property but your parking, entrance, beachfront, etc., are all private, we rarely cross paths with the folks in the cabin. We also rent the main house when we are out of town which can hold 8-10 guests.

About sally mennen

we are a retired couple who live in the main house which is down the hill but totally secluded from the cabin. The cabin has its own beach, parking, entry, deck, etc. and the amazing thing is that you are in the town of Ithaca but feel like you are in a forest on a lake. The beach is the only area where you are more likely to see a neighbor--but only if the neighbors are using their lakefront.

sally mennen purchased this cabin in 2008

Why sally mennen chose Cayuga Lake

The property is beautiful--mature trees as in an old growth forest-- but access to the lake is easier than on most of the properties along the west shore in Ithaca. And privacy is greater than in most of the west shore properties. The property has 1.4 acres with big trees and only 2 houses. Most other properties have 4-6 houses on the same size lot.

What makes this cabin unique

In addition to the natural beauty, we are SO close to all the advantages of Ithaca. No need to drive 20-40 minutes to get to shopping, restaurants, hiking trails, wineries, etc., as on other parts of the lake. Ithaca downtown is only 2 miles away.
