Description of the Little York Lake vacation cottage rental
This cottage has 2 bedrooms plus a pullout couch, full galley kitchen, full bath newly renovated, dock for fishing or sitting and 116 feet of seaweed free lakefront for swimming. There is a large sunroom with a glider couch and dining table to enjoy your meals, the views and the lake breeze. There is a fire pit outside for those 'Smores', a charcoal grill and a picinic table. You even have four Adirondack Chairs to relax in while watching the fire or the kids swim. Time Warner cable provided. It is close to Syracuse and Cortland in the heart of Central New York.
There is a convenience store/gas station, Post Office, ice cream stand, farm market, sculpture gallery, and Little York Plantation all about 1 mile from the cottage.
Area Information
Cortland is known as the Seven Valleys region. Surrounded by hills that were deposited by the retreating glaciers 10,000 years ago, it is a very scenic and diverse area. Little York Lake is nestled between two such hills just north of Cortland.
The man-made lake was formed around the turn of the century and was used to harvest ice by the Little York Ice Company. The brown house that is four houses down from the cottage was the icehouse. The icehouse is where ice was stored, to be used later throughout the summer months. The bay next to my parents house is where the ice was actually harvested from.
Dwyer Memorial Park is at the north end of the lake. There you can catch a play at the Cortland Repertory Theater, wade in the streams or wading pool, play ball, even launch your boat at the public launch.
The Finger Lakes Trail is nearby for hiking. There are many waterfalls in the region. Some of the most beautiful and amazing geologic formations in New York are less than an hours drive.
Syracuse is only a 25 minute drive north. There you can dine, go to the Museum Of Science and Technology(MOST), the Everson Art Museum, the Salt Museum, or the Erie Canal Museum/Village. Some of the most important battles in the Revolutionary War, the French/Indian War, and the War of 1812 took place on or around the water ways in Central New York. Come see for yourself. There is a lot to learn here. Hope to see you soon.

Great getaway

July 18, 2013

We stayed a week with family. Great location and the house was equipped nicely. The owner is remodeling which will only improve the experience. Very quiet friendly neighborhood. Quaint surroundings and very relaxing.
