The land that became our property was once owned by the King family. (i.e. Kingtown Beach Road) In the 1970s it was a marina developed by the Fulton family, with 4 small tourist cabins on the hillside above the water. Two more families loved and cared for the property before our family purchased it in late 2018. We're are delighted to share the beauty of Cayuga Lake with guests from all over the United States and the world, and hope to welcome you soon to The Spotted Sandpiper!  Situated on 4 acres and with 400’ of secluded frontage on Cayuga Lake, The Spotted Sandpiper is the largest private lakefront vacation rental property in the Ithaca area. We’re nestled at the end of a private road, but only 7 minutes from Trumansburg, 3 1⁄2 miles from Taughannock State Park, and 20 minutes from Ithaca. We're conveniently located along the Cayuga Wine Trail! We are perfect for family reunions and wedding party rentals, families traveling together or friends looking for a week or weekend away! Our beach is an ideal swimming spot for children because of its gentle slope and clear waters.

We had a great time at the spotted sandpiper site. They had everything we needed, we only brought clothes and food. The beds were comfortable, there was a fridge and TV in our platform tent. Firewood was provided. Dishes, pots and pans, grill, seriously everything was there. The waterfront is stone and there were kayaks and canoes and life jackets. Our family had fun, it was a great experience

Spotted Sandpiper Airstream #1
The airstream unit and the adjacent bathroom was extremely clean. It had the amenities and some great comforts to accompany them (couch, stove, tv and wifi). The unit is wedged between both another airstream unit and a cabin, so there wasn’t much space or privacy for an outdoor meal or fire, but the neighbors were nice and fairly quite. The access to the lake was really amazing and it came with seats to enjoy the space quite a bit. Definitely recommended if you want to be close to the lake and be in a happening spot with vineyards, downtown Ithaca and Lake Ontario nearby!

Airstream #2
Great little place. The airstream is super convenient and was perfect for the two of us. Well stocked with everything you would need, and the well lit deck was great to hang out on! The lake access and free use of kayaks and paddle boards was a huge plus. Super convenient to area hikes and wineries and breweries too.

Pleasantly Surprised and Happy 🤩
Well I would be the first to scoff at paying more than $100 for a tent- & now I feel like the fool cause it was worth every penny PLUS. Beautiful scenery, access to the lake, canoes, kayaks, Jordan and Kate were dolls- it’s a treasure. This place was so charming- thoughtfully put together and family friendly. I wasn’t traveling with kids but I loved how alive with kids and pups the grounds were. Plenty of space to feel private. Extra amenities provided - needed dish soap and forks for Instance and 🪄there they were- 🙏!

Water sports and Glamping or Cabins
Location was perfect for us. We took a family vacation w/2 boys 7 & 10. We wanted to be active & hit waterfalls. Watkins Glen, Buttermilk Falls, Robert Treman Park, Ithaca, Seneca lake, & 3 brothers winery for soda tastings All 30 mins away max, some closer. We loved Sandpiper because of the unlimited access to water and kayaks( kids size, singles, doubles, canoe, and paddles boards). They just built beautiful new steps down to the shore. The dock was beautiful. We would go down early morning and at night to fish. The water was so clear. We stayed in Airstream #1. It was fun for the kids. A/C, sheets, towels. I liked the bathroom separate. It was very clean but remember you are still “camping” so there are bugs. I think next time we would stay in a cabin. There are four little cabins closer to the steps and the common area with great games for the kids. The yurts are also close to that area. In that area is firewood to take and free drinking water if you need it. We didn’t mind the extra steps up the hill to the airstreams. But honestly it is all close by. Keep in mind this is a shore rental so you are going down the steeper road to the property when you get there. Kate was very responsive. We had an issue with the lights of a vacant camper shinning in the window at night and Kate took care of it and was very generous. At Sandpiper you can see their vision coming to life. They are building and working on things everyday. Very cool! I wish them good luck.

Glamping at the lake
This was the perfect spot for a long weekend getaway. Everything you need was included (we totally overpacked). Lakefront was the biggest draw and it didn’t disappoint. Hosts were extremely accommodating and resolved any concerns we had. Would definitely recommend!

Awesome airstream with amenities!
We had a great glamping experience in the airstream at the Sandpiper! Inside the camper had A/C, gas stovetop, running water, coffee maker, toaster, TV, etc. Right outside the airstream was a was a clean bathroom/shower unit. We grilled on the deck and had a campfire at night. There were several other cabins, airstreams and yurts of varying sizes on the campground with us. By the main cabins there was a communal area with some games, campfire wood and water jugs. They also had kayaks and paddle boards to use down by the docks right on the lake. Really was exactly what we hoped it would be. We did notice something that broke in the bathroom so we texted the host and it was fixed within 20 mins. Defiantly great for couples or solo travelers looking to camp without having to rough it!

Everything was in like new, extremely clean, and smelling good condition! Wouldn't hesitate choosing to stay here if you want a place to stay outside in a camping atmosphere that sits right on the lake with a private beach!

Run, don't walk to this site.
After spending more or less of the last six months camping on BLM land, Kate's spot was a treat and half. The tents were clean, well organized and had ample space — not to mention a refrigerator and TV! Don't get me wrong, the space is well secluded and plenty rustic, but it was such a wonderful departure from the ordinary campsites we had gotten used to. Just a short walk two minute walk from the lake, this spot came with canoes, kayaks and paddleboards a plenty. The rest of the property was quiet and what little interaction we had with other folks staying in the area was great. Cannot recommend more highly, we'll be back soon.
