Windgarth House liegt am westlichen Ufer des Cayuga Lake gelegen, im Herzen der Finger Lakes Wine Country, über die Straße von der Sheldrake Point Winery und Cafe. Nur 12 Meilen von Taughannock Falls State Park und 20 Meilen von Ithaca, in bester Lage eingebettet ist. Wir vermieten das Obergeschoss oder die Gesamtheit dieser schönen Seehaus wöchentlich im Sommer (Ende Juni bis Labor Day) oder für kürzere Aufenthalte, den Rest des Jahres (2 night minimum).
Windgarth Haus liegt direkt am See, mit nur einem sanft abfallenden Rasen und schönen Gärten mit alten schattigen Bäumen trennt das Haus von der Seeseite. Es gibt keine Treppen und keine Straße zwischen dem Haus und dem See, wie es üblich ist an anderer Stelle auf Cayuga Lake. Das Haus liegt an einer kleinen Bucht in der Nähe von Sheldrake Point. Das Wasser ist seicht am Ufer und allmählich tiefer entlang der Dockingstation, um etwa vier Fuß am Ende der Anklagebank. Es ist ideal für das Waten und Schwimmen für Kinder aller Altersstufen und Erwachsene. Wir bieten Ihnen einen Kanus und Kajaks, Rettungswesten und andere Wasser-Spielzeug für unsere Gäste.
Das Gebiet rund um Windgarth House ist ideal für lange Spaziergänge entlang des Sees und Radfahren. Es gibt viele Wandermöglichkeiten in der Umgebung, darunter an Taughannock Falls State Park.
Wenn Sie einen kleineren Partei haben, sprechen Sie uns an - Sie können nur die oberen Stockwerke zu einem ermäßigten Preis zu mieten.
We have been staying at Windgarth for seven summers in a row now. This is a lovely spot in the beautiful Finger Lakes area. The owners are great to work with and the home is welcoming, very clean and very comfortable. The lake front is perfect for both children and adults. The family looks forward to the lake vacation every year. Our youngest family members (ages 5 to 8) frequently ask me when we get to go back to Windgarth. It is heart warming that they embrace this family time as much as the adults. I highly recommend Windgarth to anyone considering a stay here - in fact I recommended it to my sister and her family and they loved it too. Don't miss a trip (or two) to the Creamery during your stay!
Windgarth is as relaxing and stress-free as Mariette is to work with! She cares about her customers/renters and provides a location that can't be beat! And with the winery right across the road, parking is never a problem! Growing up in Ithaca but having moved away decades ago, Windgarth @ Cayuga Lake is the perfect place for us, along with two teens, to use as a "home base" while we visit family and friends to reconnect. Long walks on the quiet farm country roads and reading in the gently sloping backyard right down to the water's edge, are respites that cause our vacation to till fill us up and not drain us, leaving us exhausted for our return to Colorado. Stay at Windgarth and see!
We have been return guests at Windgarth for over 10 years now and whenever we walk through the front door, it just feels like home. Just stroll down the gently sloping back lawn and the lake is right there as opposed to other houses in the area where the lake can only be accessed by crossing the road and going down steps.
Windgarth comes with loads of water toys: a kayak, a canoe and our favorite, the adult size inflatable tubes. We also bring our own ocean kayaks and 420 sailboat to add to the fleet.
There is plenty to do on rainy days as well. Ithaca is just 20 minutes away or you could choose to explore some of the other lakes as well. Watkins Glen, famous for Nascar racing, is about an hour away on Lake Seneca.
And let's not forget about the wineries! There are plenty of wineries and vineyards in the area where you can have wine tastings and browse the gift shops. Just be sure to have a designated driver. If you're not into wine, there are also a few vodka distilleries close by.
Windgarth is our happy place and we always feel at peace there. Having an early morning cup of coffee at the lake's shore, watching the sunrise is a blessing. You will not regret staying here.
Windgarth is a beautiful retreat for our family. We return each summer to enjoy it's peaceful surrounds. It's located on a quiet, scenic road, so family biking is a must. It is one of a few houses in the area where the lake is in the backyard and there are no stairs to reach the water. There is a canoe, a kayak and tubes available for use at the house. The are plenty of activities in the area, if you can tear yourself away from the beauty of Lake Cayuga. Ithaca is a short drive away. The Taughannock Falls are also nearby where you can enjoy a lovely stroll to the base of the falls, or a more adventurous hike that takes you to the top.
I highly recommend Windgarth House.
Had a wonderful time at Windgarth. 4 adults and 4 almost adults. The Sheldrake point location is fantastic. Quiet and beautiful. Winery across the street is a bonus and the lake is amazing and fun. Rented stand up paddle boards in Ithaca and brought them back to add to the supplied canoe and various flotation devices. You can usually find calm water due to the point location. Close to Ithaca and the falls and the two kitchens are fun. Great backyard. Would we stay again? Just try and stop us! We LOVE it!
My wife and I were married in Geneva a few weeks ago and I rented the Windgarth House for my family for the wedding weekend. I shopped around for a couple of weeks and felt fairly confident that this house would be excellent value for money, and we were not disappointed! Between the amount of space you get, the comfort of the house, its prime location, and the stunning lakefront view/dock, it doesn't get any better than this for the very reasonable price. We especially appreciated the division of the house into upstairs and downstairs "apartments." My sister, brother-in-law and their three kids were able to have their own space downstairs, with a bathroom, bedroom, pullout sofa, playroom, fully stocked kitchen, dining room table, etc.
The owners of this house are also very responsive and flexible. As soon as I booked the house, Mariette was in touch to confirm the booking, provide additional details, answer any questions, etc. Also, when I forgot to pay our balance and deposit for the house prior to the deadline (unfortunately some things fall through the cracks when you're planning a wedding!), Mariette was extremely accommodating, allowing me to drop off the payments at her office in Ithaca the day we checked in. I would definitely book this house again. Thanks again, Mariette and Laurie!
