We rented this home for my husband and his groomsmen to stay in for our wedding weekend. Shawn's house has plenty of space as advertised and the deck was really cool. However, our biggest problem was the cleanliness. In almost every corner there was a spider web or dead bugs. When we tried to walk down the dock, there were spider webs everywhere - my husband even walked through one on the stairwell! There were also a lot of signs everywhere telling you what to do and what not to do, which isn't a problem, but just a little strange.

Wonderful view. Shawn kept the house extremely organized and stocked. Loved that there were AC units in almost all of the bedrooms. Great place for a lake getaway with a group of friends.

Shawn's place is beautiful, quaint, and charming. The place is right on the lake with great views and easy access to a semi-private dock for swimming, boating, and lounging. The rooms and beds are comfortable and the common spaces open, light and airy. Her place was perfect for a large group in Ithaca for our friend's wedding weekend. BUT, we are a multiracial group and there are some items/decorations in the house that troubled our group and should be removed (racist puppets in the living room, specifically). We were able to enjoy our weekend despite the dolls, but they were definitely a shock to walk into upon check-in and a flaw in an otherwise great place.

The place has a beautiful view and access to the water. I wish I could have used the boats to go out though I don't even think I was aware they were there for our use..at any rate I was too busy at my daughter's wedding to make full use of the place. it was a beautiful weekend.

This is a beautiful duplex located on Cayuga lake. It is also a bargin for how many people it sleeps. It was well furnished, and we had what we needed in the kitchen for cooking the average meal. It has a sizable dock for relaxing, and beautiful spiral staircases. My kids enjoyed fishing from the dock, and watching hot air balloons, sea planes, and wildlife. We saw a mink, water snakes, bald eagles, and a bunch of different water fowl. One thing to note is that the dock is rather high above the water, which could be an issue for younger kids (as Shawn points out). The location is excellent, with it about ten minutes from stores. Wegmans is nearby for groceries. Home Depot provided me with the hardware for an impromptu canoe repair. The marina for launching boats is just half a mile away. The neighbors were quiet and friendly. Overall this is a great house, in a great location.

My friends and I had a lovely stay at Shawn's Cayuga lake house getaway. We took full advantage of the hot tub over looking the lake as well as the two kayaks and one rowboat. We had a fun time swimming, fishing, and playing card/board games. We also utilized the nice fire pit next to the lake. The house was comfortable and well equipped. Very much as advertised, would for sure stay here again.
