This farmhouse situated right on Cayuga Lake, was built in 1826 at Kidders Landing. The home was renovated to provide modern comforts. The house has 200 ft of gently sloping waterfront lawn and a new 100' dock with a swim ladder and a large platform for fishing and jumping into the water.

The house sleeps 8-10 comfortably and can be adapted to house more. In addition to being located on the lake and in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country, The Painted Porch Cayuga Lake Vacation Rental is also about 200 yards from a fun little log cabin lodge/restaurant/bar. So, while the house is fully equipped for dining at home, you can also make a last minute change of plans and go next door for a glass of wine and a nice dinner!

There are two bedrooms upstairs and two bedrooms downstairs. Two of the rooms have alcoves with additional bunks, making a multi-family stay more comfortable. There are ceiling fans in all of the bedrooms as well as additional window fans and window air conditioners in all 4 bedrooms. This spring, we are adding air conditioning to the kitchen, living room and dining room.

On the three acres, there are big trees and big lawns, perfect for bird watching, croquet and badminton!

Between the house and the lake is a small two lane road, which has few cars and serves primarily as a walking, jogging and biking trail. On the bright side, it is also maintained throughout the winter! We also provide little yellow "crossing markers" to create a safer environment for crossing, in the event a car goes by. In the winter, this road is maintained by the county.

The lawn slopes down to shale beach. The dock is new and goes 100' out into the lake. Mid-simmer, the water is over 6' deep before you get to the large platform at the end of the dock. We have a large patio area with dining and lots of seating. We also have a fire ring at the edge of the beach.

There is a biergarten outside on the patio off the kitchen. Bar tables and chairs. It is fun to watch for cool birds and the local white deer from there while dinner is being prepared! We have also added a patio on the south side of the house, for another shady option on late afternoon.

PLEASE ALSO NOTE: This simple farmhouse has NO TV but does have fast fiber-optic internet. You can have access to free wifi at O'Malley's also. Major sporting events are shown on the TV there. There are also 4-5 bars of phone service in the front of the house with ATT. Please also note. We have RING doorbells for security purposes; to protect the house and YOU, our guests. We also have a RING camera behind the house to monitor filling the bird feeders. We do not look at these unless our guests ask us to or if we are waiting for a package to be delivered. And we look when the house is not rented. We value YOUR PRIVACY.
