Enjoy sunsets from the deck up at the house or at lakeside. There's nothing better than lounging in the red chairs under the stars, toasting marshmallows in the fire pit and telling a tall tale or two.
A stroll on the lakeside road is a lovely in either direction.
For a nice little hike in the woods, there is also a beautiful trail nearby. Look for the waterfalls!


Charming waterfront cottage on the east side of Lake Cayuga. Amazing sunsets! Comfortably sleeps 3 couples & a single, or 2 couples & 4 children. ROKU TV's, classic video games, lots of movies, Direct TV at peak season. 25 mins from Ithaca, 10-15 mins to Aurora.

Cottage Atwater is “Paradise on Lake Cayuga" and features the most amazing sunsets, a great place to get away from it all, to be surrounded by the beauty of nature and, yet, have access to all the amenities of civilization.

Just 25 minutes from Ithaca and 9 minutes from Aurora, it's close enough to Cornell, Ithaca College and Wells College for special events. Celebrate later in a glorious location.

At the waterfront, there is a dock and a mooring for your boat, as well as an area on the dock especially for your Kayak or canoe. Relax on comfortable chairs and roast marshmallow under the stars in the fire pit. The boat shed holds rafts and “noodles" for play in the lake.

Up at the house, on the deck, there are chaise lounges, tables, chairs and umbrellas for enjoyment of the grand view outside during the warmer months. The propane-powered barbecue grill is in the back just outside the kitchen door.

Winter rentals are lovely, too! Due to its location, it may be snowing heavily up the hill but down by the lake, the setting sun warms the land and there is little accumulation. The kitchen is equipped with a brand new electric oven and refrigerator, a microwave and fully stocked with kitchen utensils, pots and pans.

There's plenty of parking, up at the house and down the driveway on the waterfront road. The driveway is a bit steep, so 4WD or AWD is strongly suggested.

The house features a comfortably furnished Living Room/Dining Room area with a High Definition TV, a DVD player and, yes, a working VHS machine. Direct TV and Wi-fi is available and there is an extensive library of DVDs and classic VHS tapes for your enjoyment.

The central area of the loft space has a futon couch and a TV equipped with a DVD player, VHS machine and a large collection of ‘old school' video game systems and games. This is a great area for the kids, big and small, to hang out.

We provide linens and towels, clean and fresh for your arrival and the housecleaning is on us at the end of your stay.

On the first floor, the Master Bedroom features a spectacular view of the lake. There is also a single bedroom with a twin bed and a recliner. This makes it nice for a Senior to kick back and get their feet up in their own quiet space. The bathroom is centrally located nearby, as well.

Upstairs, in the sleeping loft, on the south side, there is a queen-size bed and a futon chaise, separated by half wall and a Victorian screen. On the other end, there is a high-riser that transforms into a King-size bed, and another Twin bed.

For your convenience, a layout of the floor plan is included in the photos.

Guests will have access to the entire house, the waterfront, the boat shed and the garage for your bicycles. Did I mention that this is a fantastic place to go biking? And through Wine Country, no less! The boat lift is not available during the summer months as we use it for our own boat.

Although we, the owners, are not usually in the area at the time of your rental, we do have local assistants who will make themselves available to you in the event of a problem. Their phone numbers and ours are in the Information Booklet provided in the cottage. Any questions? We are best reached immediately by text message or phone call.

We are located on a lovely waterfront road that, long ago, used to be a train track running alongside Lake Cayuga. Now a quiet haven of vacation and permanent homes, the junction of the road leading down the hill from the main road was once a bustling trade center, complete with a Post Office, a ferry and a train station. The neighborhood asks that you please observe the 10-15 mph speed limit along the road as many homes have small children and older people crossing to the waterfront.

To the south of our house is a permanent residence. A tall hedge between both driveways separates our properties. To the north and the east is undeveloped so, overall, there is a great sense of privacy and solitude.

This is a wonderful place to relax, to catch up on your reading, to write the Great American novel, to get out on the lake, go biking and enjoy the fresh air – the possibilities are endless.

There is no public transportation to and from Cottage Atwater so a vehicle is necessary. As mentioned, the driveway is very steep in one spot especially so 4WD or AWD is preferred.

Within Ithaca itself, there is what they call the TCAT or Tomkins Consolidated Area Transit.
Public Transportation by bus from the NY Metropolitan Area is provided by Coach USA via the ShortLine Bus.
There are 4 airports within 50 miles of King Ferry. Their proximities, closest to furthest, are as follows; Tomkins County Airport, Syracuse Hancock Airport, Binghamton Regional Airport and Elmira/Corning Regional Airport. Transportation to and from these airports is most likely best handled by securing rental cars there.

There are window air conditioners in the Dining Room and the Master Bedroom. One can be made available for the small bedroom, although due to it's location on the floor plan, that room always seems to stay cool, even on the hottest days.

Fans are provided throughout the house.

The water comes from the lake. Although it runs through a filtered system prior to reaching the tap, we do not drink it. Prior to your arrival, the house will be stocked with a case of 20 oz. bottles, as well as 9 one gallon jugs to use for drinking, cooking and brushing teeth.

We suggest you pick up a few additional gallons depending on how long you are staying and how many are in your group.

An Information Booklet is also provided here online and on the premises with all the rules and nuances of the house. Someone is always available to answer any questions you may have during your stay – text messaging being the best way to get immediate attention.

Brochures, maps and pamphlets are kept in the Living Room area for your reference, as well.

This cottage comfortably sleeps 7 people. We welcome extra guests during the day and evening but must limit the number who stay overnight to 7.

We respectfully ask that our tenants be considerate of the neighbors in terms of noise levels and to respect their privacy.

We respectfully ask that our tenants be considerate of the neighbors along the road leading to the cottage by observing a 10 mph speed limit. The road runs between the lakefront and the houses up above and more often than not, people and children are crossing from their homes to their docks.

We allow pets on a case-by-case basis.

Smoking is not permitted in the house.

The gravel driveway is especially steep about a third of the way up , which makes 4WD or AWD preferable vehicle options.

Please be aware that, as is the case with most houses along the lake in this area, the water in the house comes from the lake and we do not drink it. As a result, we offer a starter supply of 6 gallons of bottled water, a case of 24 individual bottles and 3 gallons tap water from my mother's kitchen tap (Cortland Public Water Works). We use this for brushing teeth, etc. but it is also suitable for cooking and drinking.

I loved this house. Neat, clean and plenty of room. It’s in a great location, with a nice view of the lake. Nice dock and shoreline with good depth for boats. The road in front of the house is very quiet. I wish I could have a stayed a few more days. Thanks Holly, we hope to return!

We had a great stay at Cottage Atwater! The house was comfortable and cozy, with great views and lots of room. The location is secluded and quiet. Holly was a great communicator (before, during, after) and provided everything you could need for ease and comfort -- e.g., extra blankets, tons of beach towels, windbreakers, all kitchen gadgets, dishes, pans, etc. etc. etc. We look forward to staying again!

Ответ от Holly:
Again, thank you both for being such amazing guests. Thank you also for the heads up about your confusion re: the location of the waterfront in terms of the house. Since the front of the house actually faces away from the lake, that angle has always seemed like Cottage Atwater's "best side!" In this area, most of the lakefront properties are reached by driving down a back road up on the ridge to the house and then gaining access to the waterfront by walking down a long, steep wooden staircase to the dock. We fell in love with this place for the fact that this is one of the few properties where the house and the dock can be reached directly from the lake road itself. To get to the lake, all you have to do is walk down the driveway. By the way, the reason why the gravel lake road is so narrow is that it was once a train track that ran up the east side of the lake. It's hard to believe now, but long ago, the intersection of the lake road and the road leading down to it was once a bustling center of shipping and commerce. I appreciate your comments and have altered the description in my listing profile to remedy any inaccuracy.

The cottage is by the lake. There is a least traveled gravel road between cottage and the lake, but we witnessed no car traveling the road during the stay. The house is well equipped with beds, towels, TV with ROKU, speakers, blankets, kitchen utensils, coffee makers and coffee pods. Holly was waiting for us at the gravel road with her warm smile. We felt so welcomed. I highly recommend this place.

I would like to thank the host Holly for a wonderful long-weekend stay at her cottage. I went with my Son and Nephew for a fishing weekend on Cayuga. Note, the firelane that the cottage is on is a tricky place to turn the boat around and the driveway is a steep walk, but that said the beach and dock are wonderful. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything you possibly need for an enjoyable stay. Fishing was great and the lake (the largest of the finger lakes) is huge. Many species to fish. Just off the shoreline (between the cottage and moving south toward the power plant, the is a weed-line between 6 and 18 ft depth before a drop to 30', that is loaded with panfish and bass. There is a Marina (Don's Marina) a very short drive north (less than a mile) from the cottage for fueling and boat launch, but it does requires 4X4 for launch and retrieve. Note: They can launch for you with a tractor, and store your trailer (recommended if not 4X4). The deck has a beautiful view of the lake, and a great place to sit for nice lunch, or evening drink. The bedding was comfortable and clean. The Host is friendly, organized, informative. There is a winery within a couple miles. It was a great weekend, we caught fish, and enjoyed our time together. There is decent wifi and cable TV, a Keurig Coffee maker. I would highly recommend it! Thank you Holly!

Holly took the time to meet my group (even though we were a bit late and she had to drive far to get home) and showed us around the property. I'm very thankful she made the extra effort as a host. And what an amazing property it was - with spectacular views of Lake Cayuga! It was the perfect little retreat from the urban daily grind. There's plenty to do around the property. We went to the Corning Museum, Watkins Glen, and Taughannok Falls. We even spent a day just kicking back and enjoying the view from the porch. Time well spent. I'd definitely be interested in coming back at some point. Thanks for sharing the property, Holly!

In 1978, my parents just happened to discover a rustic and charming hunting cabin in the woods on Lake Cayuga. Ever since then, the area has held a special place in my heart. Many years later, my husband and I bought our own place just up the road. In the Spring, Summer and Fall, we enjoy walking, biking, hiking, waterskiing, swimming and exploring the lake. There is a lot to do by boat; vineyards with dock access, concerts at Taughannock Park in the summer and restaurants directly across the lake. Ithaca, Aurora and Auburn all offer Museums, Shops and Historic attractions, as well.

Every summer, I convert the garage into an art studio, where my family and I spend many an hour painting. All guests so inclined have been known to join us and if you happen to be here in the summer and the studio is set up, we welcome you to take advantage of the space to make art. Feel free to use any and all canvases and supplies on hand.

Inspired by the solitude of the lake, my family and I spend blissful hours and days reading, writing, watching movies and unwinding, as well as, waterskiing, making music and grilling outside. We are relaxing and on vacation! Someday, this Paradise will be our permanent home but, until then, please share it with us. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Warm in the winter, breezy in the summer, the house is comfortable and the furnishings aren’t at all fussy. Please feel free to put your feet up! Find the joy in each day.
