Just 5 mins from downtown & 10 mins from Cornell + the best waterfall in town is a two-story sunny loft with floor-to-ceiling windows, a spiral staircase, 2 patios and a private dock!
Featuring panoramic views on a loft perched high above Cayuga Lake w/access to a private dock, a fully stocked kitchen, & bright living spaces. There's a patio with a hammock for naps after a long travel or to observe the plethora of animals that live in our gardens and trees.
Make sure to bring a camera with you! Although the loft faces the sunrise (which is magnificent to watch if you're an early bird), the sky during sunset paints lush salmon colors w/speckles of gold & brushstroked clouds.
The owner of the property lives in the unit above the one you'll be staying at. She is a retired former NASA employee, an alumni of Cornell with a degree in Engineering, a certified Transcendental Meditation teacher, tends to her gardens on the property, and takes morning 'strolls' on her vintage rowing boat on the lake.
For bookings with 4+night stays, you may book a week-long Transcendental Meditation session where right above your unit, you can learn to meditate; a highly recommended practice by many successful people. In your message, please state your interest.
I am a tenant of the apartment and have thoroughly enjoyed staying here for a year now. I know this space intimately & represents a big part of me. I really, really enjoy this space a lot and so will you.
