The Lake House, located at 1228 East Shore Drive in Ithaca, NY is a terrific vacation home featuring 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. You will not find a better combination of panoramic lake views, proximity to Ithaca, and a sense of being close to nature. We recently updated the home with new paint inside and out, new carpeting, new flooring, new wallpaper, new beds, a new 40" flat screen TV, free wi-fi, a Bose docking station, new deck furniture, a large antique dining room table, 3 kayaks, and a new gas grill. There is a queen bed in the master bedroom, a double bed in a second bedroom (that needs to be walked through to get to master BR), a pyramid bed in the third bedroom, and a queen bed in the in-law suite.
Because the driveway angles northwest off of East Shore Drive, the house is best approached by heading north. The house is approximately 1.25 miles north of Stewart Park. As you head north on East Shore Drive, you will pass a green sign on your right for the “Village of Lansing.” The driveway is on the left, 100 feet past this sign, across from a set of mailboxes. The driveway slopes severely down toward the lake, so you will want to proceed slowly. As you pull forward in the driveway, you will be looking at the Lake House. The code for the lock boxes can be found under "check-in" on this website. Check-in is at 4:00 p.m. and check-out is at 10:00 a.m.
Lake/beach: The house is lake front, set on a small bluff looking west across Cayuga Lake (the sunsets are amazing!). There is a set of stairs that leads from the south end of the driveway down to a small, private, shale-covered beach for your enjoyment. You can swim, kayak, fish, and enjoy camp fires on the beach. Note: there are train tracks below the bluff between the house and the lake. Last summer, a train came by once to twice a week. The train ambles along at about 5 mph, but it can crush pennies set on the tracks! There are beach chairs for your use, as well as 3 kayaks with paddles and life jackets.
Entertainment: Cayuga Lake is 40 miles long, about 1½ miles wide where the Lake House is located, and approximately 400 feet deep. You can sail, kite board, jet ski, kayak, fish, and go to some of the area’s many fantastic wineries by boat. There are numerous gorges, waterfalls, swimming holes, state parks, and hikes within 30 minutes of the Lake House. Cornell University’s stunning campus is only 2 miles away, Ithaca College is 6 miles away, and the town of Ithaca’s newly remodeled commons area--with its fantastic variety of restaurants and shops--is about 3 miles away. On weekends, don’t miss the nearby Farmer’s Market at the south end of Cayuga Lake! Brochures on these and many other local attractions are available at the Lake House.
Dining: Ithaca boasts an incredible array of restaurants, from the commons area (Madeline’s, Waffle Frolick, Mia, Mercado, Mahogany Grill, Just a Taste) to the inlet (Boat Yard Grill); from a fantastic brewery with outdoor seating (Ithaca Beer Company) to a funky neighborhood bistro just 1.5 miles away (Northstar House); from exotic Ethiopian cuisine (Hawi) to an assortment of amazing Thai restaurants. You will not go hungry!
Groceries/Incidentals: The Triphammer Mall area, just 2 miles north of the Lake House, has a grocery store, convenience and department stores, a gas station, the Ithaca Bakery’s other location, and whatever else you might need if you don’t want to head toward downtown Ithaca (which has everything, including weekend crowds).
Medical Care: There are two nearby urgent care facilities. Convenient Care is 6 minutes away at 10 Arrowwood Drive in Ithaca. To get there, take a right out of the driveway and go south on East Shore Drive. In 1.4 miles, make a left onto Route 13 north. Go 2.6 miles, and turn right onto Warren Road. In 0.2 miles, turn left on Arrowwood Drive, and the destination will be on your left in 200 feet. Five Star Urgent Care is located at 740 South Meadow Drive in Ithaca. It is in town, about 10 minutes away.

We feel fortunate to be in a position to share this beautiful property with others. Cayuga Lake is just steps away, and the sunsets can be breath-taking. We bought the property in 2015 and spruced it up with fresh paint, new carpeting, brand new beds, fully stocked kitchen, etc. We love to travel and have come to appreciate the small touches that make guests feel comfortable, relaxed, and at home. We hope you feel that way in our place.
