Lake Cottage

Winter season: Closed
Summer season: Rents with the Lake House Complex

(Rented in combination with the Lake House and Bunk House during summer season and holiday weekends)

After a day of swimming, fishing, or reading on the patio, gather around the fire put directly on the beach. Afterwards, let the waves lull you to sleep as you relax in your spacious, new king-sized bed.

Located directly on our private beach, the Spotted Sandpiper Lake Cottage was added in 2019. The unit has 1 bedroom, 1 bath, and can sleep an additional 2 in the living room on a fold-out couch.

Full kitchen with oven, stove, refrigerator, coffee maker and toaster. Full bathroom with walk-in shower. Fire pit, picnic table, propane BBQ and additional seating provided.

Please note that parking for this unit is at the top of the boat ramp. Guests must walk down the boat ramp or take a staircase (approximately 50 steps) from the main parking level. Guests with 4-wheel or all-wheel drive may drive down to the beach to drop off their luggage.

    • We are located at the end of a ½ mile private road that is safe for all types of vehicles during most of the year. In snowy/icy conditions, 4-wheel or all-wheel vehicles is strongly encouraged.
    • Everyone staying at the property can enjoy our private beach. Electric and manual boat slips are available for rent and guests are welcome to bring small watercraft (kayaks, canoes) free of charge.
    • We love parties, but gatherings of guests not staying on the property need to be approved prior to arrival so we can insure sufficient parking and bathroom facilities. Additional fees may apply.
    • We are a pet-friendly property! Pets are $50/pet/stay. Rabies/distemper paperwork required for dogs.
    • We clean almost exclusively with eco-friendly products. Due to COVID, we’re also fully sanitizing with an ammonia-based product. (Please contact us for our COVID policies.)
    • We have 2 fiber drops on the property. Internet service will always be fastest under the covered porches of each of the units.
    • We provide all of the linens and bath towels you need for your stay, as well as basic paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, tissue) and basic soaps (hand and dish).
    • All of our units have A/C, heating, and cable TV.
    • Cell service varies on the property. In 2020, Verizon’s service was excellent, AT&T’s was ok, and TMobile customers had to enable wifi calling.
    • We are located in the woods and on the shore of Cayuga Lake. Six and eight-legged critters love these places as much as us and are a fact of life in rural Upstate NY. If the bugs are “bugging” you, we’re always happy to help.
