We're right in the middle of all the wonderful things the Finger Lakes has to offer.
A few minutes drive will take you to Taughannock Falls State Park and the magnificent Taughannock Falls waterfall, Cayuga Lake, Cornell, Ithaca College, The Finger Lakes Wine Trail, Montezuma Wildlife Refuge, plenty of antique stores, art galleries, wonderful restaurants and more. Finger Lakes wines are world-renowned as among the best and well worth a tasting tour. The Seneca White Deer tours are always offering special events that are both fun and educational for the whole family.
Or just relax in the cottage or outside. Curl up with a good book, play a board game, walk around the lawn or play Frisbee with your pup.
"Thank you for a lovely stay. The wildlife was wonderful and we had a great stay."
"Had a great stay. Saw a pair of cardinals in the yard. Thanks so much."
Solar lights on the island invite strolls to see the thousands of fireflies in the summer, or watch for the wildlife that comes for a drink. Deer, raccoons, possums, squirrels, turkeys and many songbirds are just some of the wildlife you’re likely to see. Once in awhile a coyote, pheasant or possibly even a skunk or muskrat make an appearance, too.

This little girl is wondering if it's safe to come up the steps.
You're more likely to hear them at night, but once in awhile they're out and about during the day. Mostly shy, you're most likely to see one walking across an open field.
Cute, and they won't bother you if you don't bother them!
You may see both red and grey foxes here. In the spring you can sometimes see the kits romping in the fields.
We have both red and grey squirrels. The grey love the walnuts from the trees in the yard and the red squirrels cache the pine cones for winter.
Cardinals, Blue Jays, Wrens, Robins, Woodpeckers and hundreds of other birds to watch.
Lots of turkeys around. The hens tend to run in flocks and sometimes in the summer they'll be leading the young poults around through the fields.
You'll most likely see deer. There are lots of them.
