“Perfect place to relax”
Reviewed 18 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

The lake is amazing and the sunsets are definitely worth watching. The house had everything we needed and was very clean on arrival. The owners were very accommodating and responded instantly to all communications. We visited nearby waterfalls and the town of Aurora was very pretty. We had done a lot of travelling the week before we arrived at Pura Vida so this cottage was exactly what we needed, very peaceful and very friendly people. We would recommend this cottage to families or small groups.

“Goldilocks cottage”

The weather was hot, but the lake and the house were just right. Friendly neighbors, great amenities. We used the kayaks every day, and made a point to watch the sun set every night. We rented SUP’s for the week from Puddledocker’s in Ithaca—highly recommend. It was a perfect week for our family of 5 adults.

“Fantastic few days..........We wish we could have stayed longer......”
Reviewed 11 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The cottage is in a fabulous location with fantastic access into the lake. We spent the days with the kids (14,10 and 9) swimming, kayaking, reading, fishing and generally relaxing. It was great way to finish our holiday (after a couple of weeks of running from pillar to post).

The cottage is beautiful, the kitchen is equipped to a high standard. There was plenty of sleeping space and the whole place was clean throughout and well furnished.

The best compliment we can give is that we would all like to come back again and stay for longer.

“Close your eyes...hear the soothing sound of water, nature and folks enjoying "lake life"!”
Reviewed 11 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Lovely cottage, as advertised! Situated directly at the water with a newly renovated over water deck and dock, on the east side on Lake Cayuga. Sunsets were beautiful. Good location on a quiet cottage lane, but still near Ithaca and Aurora, and easy to explore the lake and nearby attractions.
