Small and peaceful Heron Cove year-round lakeshore cottage is light and bright. It has two bedrooms, one bath with tub and shower, kitchen and Living Room / Dining Room combination.

Flat access into the property over your own quaint bridge by private cove-side road through New York State wilderness area leads into to this secluded spot with incredible views. Over 100 ft. of lake frontage, and bordered by your southeast and southern views by State Park land.
Immediately adjacent to Treman State Marine Park and Marina (with superb launching facilities), The Hangar Theater, town Tennis Courts, Dog Park, Recreation Trails, Swimming Pool, Ice Rink (or for rollerblading in summer). Relax and dine on the brand new dock, pull up your canoe or kayak onto the shore, or moor your sailboat. . . or walk to town. This property provides unlimited opportunities for year-round outdoor activities.

This cosy year-round cottage is the closest lakefront property to the City of Ithaca. It's just minutes to campus (Cornell and IC). A birder's paradise, with herons, numerous species of ducks, geese, loons, and the occasional osprey sighting. A perfect retreat for a single or couple-- writer, grad student, visiting professor, or sabbatic hideaway. The immense glass doors in the living room flood the cottage with light making it ideal for use as an stand-along artist's studio or bird-watching base for photography or audio recording. hide

Character and Style

Since the first time I saw this sweet cottage many years ago while out in my little boat, I have thought it would be an extraordinary place to own. The setting is one of the most charming I've seen on the lake.
Though the cottage is tiny, it has just over 100 ft. of lake frontage that's bordered by State land and made even more private by the deeded access road into the property. If the cottage weren't pointed out specifically to you, then you would overlook it entirely.
Birds and wildlife are the property's primary residents throughout the year. It's a paradise.

LIVING GREEN

The small size of the cottage is it's most obvious GREEN characteristic. It takes very little to heat it or to cool it in summer. It's at the base of a small cliff that yearround has cooling water dripping through its moss-covered rocks. Since the access road is completely flat, there is little need, if ever, even to shovel in the winter. Now for Ithaca, THAT's energy efficiency!

So much water!

In Ithaca in the Springtime it can rain for days on end When it does the water rushes down surrounding steams into the lake. It's stupendous.
