Wake up to the beautiful sunrise in Seneca Falls on Cayuga Lake, sip coffee on the wraparound deck or on the dock where the lake and all it offers is right there for you to enjoy. Very private compared to other nearby rentals. We have off-road parking on site since we own two water level side-by-side properties (that's often not the case with lakefront properties in this area ... that's why we make sure to show the roadside pictures of our property. There is a new Ordinance in Seneca Falls concerning properties, so beware of a booking without available parking). Generous 57' of lakefront. Blue herons like to fish there at dawn and dusk - and a pair of ospreys can be observed diving for fish right around the dinner hour. Boating (bring yours or rent ours at Boatsetter.com), restaurants, wine trails, the Del Lago casino and events center, and other attractions await your family. If you have a boat / jetski, bring it along - we have 3 docks. Swim ladder and a lakemat in water to enhance your lakeside experience .... There is a nice swimming beach and new playground at the nearby State Park as well. Boaters can enjoy the nearby sandbar and Hibiscus Harbor. Three sit-in kayaks and one Old Town canoe for your use on site at no charge. (May - October) Extra docks and parking available - please consult with owner ahead of time. There is a sandbar close by where boats like to gather. Life jackets are also supplied. Firepit by the water with wood for burning. Gas grill with propane on side deck. Cottage is bright and comfortable with amenities and panoramic views. Stainless steel stove and new dishwasher (09/2022). Newly painted kitchen and flooring. Central air. Very comfortable right on the water...... The house is clean and comfortable - but not so fancy that guests can't just enjoy themselves and the outdoors. Living room and kitchen area in front of the house are spacious and great for relaxing and entertaining. Kitchen table for dining and WiFi/full cable channels available throughout the house, up and down. Cellphone service is very good on land and on water. 1st floor back bedroom / familyroom (with lake and deck right outside door) is a large space with a new queen mattress with topper, a full sleeper sofa, and Ikea furniture (bolted to the wall). Upstairs studio has a queen bedroom set, daybed, 2 fold-away twins, and a set of bunk beds. Newer half-bath upstairs. Over 5 guests can easily sleep both up and down (extra-charge of $65/night will show in quote over 5 guests). Please note: Children over a year old are counted in the guest total when booking. Large full bath with whirlpool tub also on first floor, with stacking laundry. Lots of quiet space for sleeping, playing games, and listening to the waves lap up onto the shore as the moonlight glows over the lake. Great cross breezes - and ceiling fans if preferred over central A/C. Each floor has ceiling fans in every room (except baths). The Blue Heron has driveway parking for 3-4 vehicles. Please ask ahead about additional parking which can be arranged on site, including trailer parking. Lakeside restaurant (Wolffys) is just a few-minute walk for your convenience. Golf course, playgrounds all nearby. Great lakeside road for biking. Of course, the Finger Lakes offer wine trails all around, including within a few miles. Wine tours can be arranged right from the cottage! (Please search online for Cayuga/Seneca Wine trails since availability changes each season). Great shopping at the Fingerlakes outlet mall, and the Del Lago casino event center is 7 miles north. Lots of sightseeing in the area, including Taughannock Falls. Destinations such as Ithaca, Geneva, Skaneateles, Canandaigua, and Rochester are all in the area. Montezuma wildlife refuge, Corning Glass Museum, Watkins Glen and Niagara Falls are some of the attractions that can be enjoyed in a day. Check back for the occasional cancellation if the dates you prefer are already booked. The season fills up quickly.
