Furnished Lakefront Home with Spectacular Views near Cornell University

Our home offers a delightful combination of panoramic lake views, proximity to campus, and a sense of being close to nature. We bought the house in 2015 and have upgraded it every year, including new paint inside and out, new flooring, remodeled bathrooms, new appliances, window air conditioning units, new kitchen supplies (e.g., dishware, pots, pans, flatware), granite counter tops, a new propane barbeque grill in 2020, a new water heater, and new furniture for 2021. The house features plush carpeting in the master bedroom, luxury vinyl flooring on the main level, a 40" flat screen smart TV, washer/dryer, wi-fi, deck furniture for meals and lounging, a large antique dining room table, and 3 kayaks. 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 the master bedroom), and a pyramid bed in the third bedroom. The master bedroom has a balcony that looks over the lake. There is also an adjoining one bedroom apartment that sits over the garage and can be rented for an additional $500/month. It would make an ideal office or in-law suite, and features a brand new kitchen with breakfast bar, a queen bed, a private balcony, new living room furniture, and a full bathroom.

The house is set on a small bluff looking west across Cayuga Lake (the sunsets are amazing!). There is a set of stairs that leads down to a 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. In the fall and spring, a train comes by 1-2 times a week, and it rarely runs in the winter. When it does come by, the train ambles along at about 5 mph, so it does not pose a safety hazard. We will gladly provide beach chairs for your use, and paddles and life jackets for the kayaks. There are nearby wineries, golf courses, restaurants, and nature galore: bald eagles, osprey, ducks, trout, bass, pike, mink, heron...all at your doorstep. Come enjoy your sabbatical year at our home.

About Me
I work and live in State College, Pennsylvania although I own a lakefront home in Ithaca, New York where two of my kids went to college. The house is two miles from Cornell and six miles from Ithaca College. We would be happy to share our home with a fellow academic for a 9-10 month sabbatical.
