Fantastic lake rental!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been happier with this property. Right up against the edge of the lake, great fire pit, nice dock, access to 2 kayaks and a rowboat, and every room in the house has a view of the lake. Owner is very accommodating - met us at the property and was very helpful in acclimating us. It's not a new property and the furnishings aren't glamorous, but it's quite clean and the rustic feel is perfect for enjoying the lake. Pictures of the inside accurately portray what you'll get, but the pics of the outside and the proximity to the lake don't do the property justice. Can't wait to come here again.

Graduation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Canvas Back Cottage May 18-22. Our son received his Masters from Ithaca so we made a little vacation out of it. The setting of this house was beautiful. The house itself was neat and clean. There were 6 of us and there was plenty of room. I thought that one shower would be a problem but it was not. The kitchen was well stocked with all we needed to prepare and eat our meals. We did most of our cooking on the brand new gas grill. Each night we were there we spent the evening around a fire right at the waters edge. Some of us also made use of the kayaks. When the weather was not conducive to being outside we made use of the TV which is equipped with a Roku. The stairs going down to the cottage are steep but managable as long as you don't have any mobility issues. Wes met us when we arrived and showed us around the house and the property. A big plus is it's proximity to Ithaca and all that that area has offer. We had a great experience and stay and would book this cottage again.

Just what we hoped for!

Our only regret was that we didn’t stay longer. Next time!

Beautiful lakefront! Hosts were helpful and very polite. We would absolutely visit again.

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a four day weekend at the house. We could not have been more pleased. The hosts were pleasant, helpful, and very receptive. I wouldn't have changed a thing. The only thing that could be a challenge is the steep flight of stairs leading to the house. We didn't have any problem at all with it but it could be a little tough for some. This property offers an astounding view of the lake, a large dock, fire pit, a nice sized lower level, and privacy. The owners are very accessible and great to deal with. We would absolutely recommend to all and may very well return some day!

Dirty and messy

  • 1 of 5

We expected 36 steps to get into the house, but not a metal ladder with only one rusting handrail. On the evening we arrived the roadway was taotally covered with leaves and unable to be seen. Lights went out on the first night and the owner was not reachable to help or suggest solutions,until next morning. House was messy and disorganized and not very clean. We cleaned everything before we could use it. For the amount charged we had much higher expectations of the accommodations.The lake was lovely.. I guess we paid for the view.

Owner's Response: Hi Kati - I have talked to my housekeeping manager. Her work has always been excellent and we are both surprised and concerned by your review. Could you be more specific about your comment of a “dirty and messy” cottage. We want to make certain to correct any problems of cleanliness. Thank you. Wes

We got in a little late but it was perfect timing for sunset....the 4 of us were in awe of the beauty. We sat down at the waters edge till dark before we even settled in. The owner was very responsive and very accommodating. We made some great memories, I hope its available for future visits!
