Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Lansing - Alilys-on-Cayuga

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch Over Looking Lake, 1 Full Bath (Sleeps 2-6)

Welcome to Alilys-on-Cayuga! Our quaint 1930’s cottage will make for a most memorable vacation. Relax & enjoy one of the most breathtaking views of Cayuga Lake. Spend the day lounging on our beautiful waterfront beach. Create a fabulous feast in our cook’s kitchen & dine outside overlooking the lake. End your evening w/a bonfire on the waterfront, roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. Only 20 sloping steps to our 110 ft lake front beach. Perfect for swimming, fishing or boating. Have lunch on the beach in the gazebo or bask in the sun on the private dock.

The Unique Benefits of this Cottage:: The peacefulness of the mornings, listening to the world on the lake wake up! The sunsets are amazing whether you are at the picnic table, on the beach, hanging on the deck or eating at the dining room table. Riding bikes up, up, up Nut Ridge Road and then exploring the area on two wheels. Curling up on the daybed with a good book for hours and hours. The beach, the beach, the beach! Cooking up meals at a leisurely pace. Swimming, floating, paddling. Sleeping on the dock in the afternoon sun. A bon fire in the evening...the view, did we say the view!

First time in upstate NY during the summer and it was beautiful!! Kelli was great and easy to work with. Grounds were beautiful, and house was so cute and spotless! Only downfall was that the house didn't have AC so it was a little hot! Will definitely be back to visit Cayuga Lake!

The perfect getaway!

We spent our 25th Wedding Anniversary trip here. The property speaks for itself- it's beautiful inside and out. A clean, comfortable, cozy, well equipt cottage with adorable details inside and beautiful views outside. It's near so many great places- parks, wineries, farmers markets, and cute restaurants, and the rental process was friendly, efficient, and painless! I would highly recommend staying here. I would love to go again!!
