Looking to book your next family get-away? Look no further! This spacious home situated beautifully on 200' of Cayuga lakefront will be sure to please with amenities for everyone!

Walking in on the main floor, you'll find a large open floor plan.  The Dining Room, Kitchen and Living Room are all open to each other with high vaulted ceilings and tiled floors.  There is plenty of seating in the Living Room area with 2 separate seating areas.  The large dining room table seats 10 and there is an additional smaller table that seats 5.  

The kitchen is fully stocked with cookware and dinnerware and has an island with additional seating space.

Off of the kitchen, you'll find a large office room with a gas fireplace, games, sofa, desk and TV.  This room has doors that walk out onto the driveway as well as a door that closes this room off from the rest of the house, making it a quiet office space if necessary.

The Master bedroom on the main floor has a King size bed with french doors that open out onto the deck overlooking the lake.  There is a large full bath attached to the master bedroom with a walk in shower.
The second bedroom on the main floor has amother King size bed and the main floor full bathroom is just outside this bedroom door.  This bathroom has a tub/shower combo.

Downstairs you'll walk into the family room with several couches, a pool table, several bar tables, a wine bar area, large screen TV with SONOS surround sound and the wine room.  This large open family room has 3 sets of doors that open out onto the concrete patio overlooking the lake.  The wine room has a small sink as well as a mini fridge.

You'll also find two more bedrooms downstairs.  Bedroom 3 has 2 sets of Double beds and doors that lead out onto the patio.  Bedroom 4 has a Queen bed and a  Twin/Double bunk combo.  There is an additional 3rd full bathroom between these two bedrooms with a tub/shower combo.  
The laundry room is also downstairs with a full washer and dryer for you to use.

The lawn is large enough for lawn games and has level access to the water with several hundred fee of private lake front. The dock area is great for fishing, swimming, or just relaxing and enjoying the views. The dock also has two boat lifts, one for a pontoon and one for a boat, for your use so bring your boat and enjoy the lake life! There are 4 kayaks at the house as well--2 doubles and 2 singles. 

If you're not fond of swimming in the lake, there is a lovely heated, in-ground pool overlooking the lake for your enjoyment, with a seating area and wood fired pizza oven pool-side (pool is only available in the summer months from mid-May to the end of September)!  There are many beautiful flower gardens surrounding the house, the pool and patio.

The home is aptly named Goose House because of the many Canadian geese you'll see on the lake.  During migration periods, there are flocks of geese that may come to the shoreline/edge of the yard.   If you do not enjoy watching the geese or find wildlife to be a nuisance, this property may not be the best fit for you, but if you enjoy watching wildlife and birds you will absolutely love watching the lake habitats from the windows of the house, the yard or the lake itself.  The expansive view of the lake is phenomenal, fishing is good, and the wildlife is enjoyable to observe.

The house has a large wrap around deck facing the lake and there is plenty of outdoor dining space as well as a large gas grill.

 Located just 30 minutes North of Ithaca and 30 minutes from Auburn, this home is easily accessible and close to area attractions, all while still having privacy and easy lake access. Enjoy your morning coffee on the large deck, facing East with stunning views of the lake.

We look forward to hosting you!

This place was stunning!! The view of the water was to die for! Most of us spent our mornings sitting in the living room watching the water. The kitchen had everything you need to prepare meals. Everything was clean and essentials were provided. I would recommend this to anyone, especially in the summer months when you can enjoy the pool and lakeside!

We had a very minor issue in the master bath with the faucet and it was fixed on the same day which was remarkable. There was great communication with Myron about this. This is the second time I've rented from Linger Hospitality and I love supporting a local family owned business and I really appreciate your hospitality philosophy.
We really enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook all week. The pool was absolutely fantastic and we used this everyday. The fire pit was a great size. We loved all the birds and watching hawks each day. We had a wonderful week relaxing together as a family and loved the space and seating upstairs. Thank you for the extra touches like the wine, little box of goodies, and the firewood bundles!

All questions and our very minor issues were answered within hours.
It is a lovely piece of property with plenty for room for 3 generations. 7 adults and 6 children had plenty of room. The pool was fantastic and the yard is large with easy entry into the lake.

Everyone was pleasant and answered any concerns very timely.
We were a family of 8 adults and 5 children ( ages 2 to 8) on our annual family vacation. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. We had a wonderful week of swimming, fishing, games, campfires and wine touring. One of the grandchildren was in tears because she had to leave. Would highly recommend this property to anyone. You will not be disappointed.

They were very accommodating and explained all details about the rental.
We loved the property and house and would be willing to book again. The view is nothing short of awesome and its relatively private without neighbors right on top of you. The area is full of state parks and wineries. The kayaks were a big hit and were used all the time. We were Fishing off the dock every morning. On top of all that, a heated pool was also available.

We had some issues with the pool and they were very prompt in trying to remedy the situation for us. The response time was excellent.
Goose house was the perfect setting for our family vacation! The boat lifts made it super easy to keep our boats at the property and were both very easy to use. The house was very accommodating both inside and out, and provided a lot of space for 3 families to spread out. The pool was a great addition to this house too. The Linger team was very responsive to any issues that arose during our stay. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wishing to escape to the lake!

The Goose House property was perfect. It has all that you need for a quaint weekend away. The views are breathtaking and you are so close to so many amazing wineries. Being provided the amenities such as a fire pit, a heated pool, and kayaks were just the cherries on top.

A big thank you to Joleen for being so friendly and easy to work with! She happily answered any questions I had before our stay, no matter how small or silly they might have been. I appreciate everything she did for us to make our stay a success!
I CANNOT say enough wonderful things about the Goose House! It was beautiful in the pictures and even more wonderful in person! The lakeside views were magical and the heated pool was so perfect for our not-totally-summer weather. It easily accommodated our large group comfortably, and I think there were still areas of the house that we didn't get to use! We will definitely be back!

The views of Lake Cayuga from the high deck and the main living areas inside the home are outstanding! Our family (11 of us) had a great week: catching a number of fish on the pier, kayaking on the lake with the four kayaks provided, swimming in the well-heated pool (and lake, with water shoes) and playing various games on the large lawn. We enjoyed the lakeside fire pit too. For rainy days there is plenty of room for a large family to spread out. We ate all but one dinner at home, and the Green Egg smoker definitely added to the trip food-wise. Joleen was quick to respond and always helpful, check in was simple, and the house was clean and well air-conditioned. A minor quibble/heads up is that towels are only provided for inside so we had to go out and buy our own towels for the pool and the lake. Overall, a strong five-star rating and highly recommended!

Goose House was spectacular! The views of the lake are breathtaking, the house is very roomy and well stocked with essentials, and the pool is nice and warm. My family and I rented the house for a long weekend to celebrate my mother in law's 80th birthday. Everyone agreed that this was the perfect spot! Even better than we expected from the photos. Joleen was very helpful and responsive. Truly a perfect experience!

Our family of six adults recently stayed at the Goose House and loved it! Joleen was very helpful during the reservation process and quickly responded to any questions we had before we arrived and during our stay. The house and property are gorgeous with a breathtaking view of Lake Cayuga! It had everything we needed including cozy areas to hang out together inside, a fantastic deck and sitting areas, warm water pool and plenty of space inside to spread out if we wanted! This was our first time to the Finger Lakes region and we were very pleased with all the area had to offer including the wine trails, great restaurants, waterfalls, hiking, beautiful scenery and the glider rides! We highly recommend the property and its host Joleen and hope to return for another stay in the future.
