This may be the best spot on the lake. Beautiful sunsets across the lake, kayaks, total privacy. House is clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Kitchen is well stocked with new appliances. Definitely recommend!

“Escape to the Finger Lakes”
Reviewed March 5, 2017 for a stay in November 2016

My family and area friends and I enjoyed The Point so very much for our holiday gathering. We are looking forward to booking another stay for early Fall this year.
The place and the grounds and the water are amazingly beautiful. And the sunsets are remarkable!

“Perfectly Peaceful Place to Escape”
Reviewed March 5, 2017 for a stay in July 2016

We absolutely LOVED our vacation at The Point! It's very private with a lot of beachfront. It has a large deck where we ate our dinners while looking out at the lake and watching fabulous sunsets from. The house is nicely decorated and very clean and you can tell the owner's put a lot of thought into providing anything you might need. We can't wait to rent it again! I highly recommend you check it out.

So glad you enjoyed your visit! Do come back again! It's hard to beat the views from the dining table on the front deck! If you are looking for a relaxing treat, you may want to try the catering options offered by Simmer Down - it's hard to beat letting someone else do the work while you enjoy the ambiance at the property!

“A Cayuga Lake Gem!”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in October 2016

Our stay here was fantastic! Great location that was very convenient to Ithaca with amazing views! Gorgeous sunsets! Owners gave us great suggestions for local restaurants. The hot tub was a decadent indulgence. Bathrooms were small but clean, and having a towel heater in the larger bathroom to help the towels dry faster was a nice touch. Very comfy beds - homey feeling overall. Highly recommended - we would stay here again.
