What we love

  • Exquisite Luxury Property on the Shores of Lake Cayuga
  • Historic House dotted with Art
  • Perfect for Entertaining Guests
  • Two-Storey Boathouse

Rowland House was built in 1903 and restored 2014.

Originally built for entertaining, the home hosted many bridge games, charity sales and other social functions at the bequest of their orignal owners.

Pleasant T. Rowland, an alumna of Wells College, noted educator, author of early childhood literacy programs and founder of American Girl, commenced restoration of the property in 2013. Dotted with art and furnishings from her personal collection, Rowland House pays tribute to both Pleasant T. Rowland’s vision and philanthropic legacy.

This luxury home is surrounded by ancient trees and includes a historic Grecian temple and a spectacular two-storey boathouse. 

It offers ten chic guestrooms each with an en-suite bathroom and marble bath, original modern art, stunning views and luxurious linens. The third floor includes four guestrooms, along with a private lounge decorated with the distinctive and playful designs of MacKenzie-Childs.

Featuring an expansive porch, twin parlors, a library, and a private dining room, working fireplaces, original architectural details, and uninterrupted lake views.

Rowland House serves as the ideal escape from the frenetic pace of modernity.

An executive boardroom, housed in the home’s original billiard room, offers a state-of-the-art location for meetings and small corporate retreats.
