About the neighbourhood
The home is located in the Village of Cayuga, NY on the north eastern leg of the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. The home is a short walk from Harris Park for swimming. Our kayaks and canoe are kept at Beacon Bay marina. Property is 10 minutes from the new Del Lago Casino which has a terrific entertainment venue, the Vine. The Montezuma National Park is 5 Miles north of the home. This is a great place for birdwatching and easy hiking.
Getting around
A car is needed. Many guests also rent pontoon boats from nearby marinas or bring their own boats to enjoy the beautiful lake, fish, and visit 'the sand bar' which is a local gathering spot near Cayuga. The canal lock system is also just north with gives you access to the canal and Seneca Lake. We provide 2 kayaks and a canoe to also let you explore the lake.
