Taughannock Falls State Park | Cayuga Lake | Finger Lakes | New York
Taughannock Falls State Park is a 750-acre (3.0 km2) state park located in the Town of Ulysses in Tompkins County, New York in the United States. The park is northwest of Ithaca near Trumansburg. The park's namesake, Taughannock Falls, is a 215-foot (66 m) plunge waterfall that is the highest single-drop waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains.
The region surrounding Taughannock Falls State Park was home to the Cayuga people prior to their displacement from the area during the Clinton-Sullivan Campaign following the American Revolutionary War. Taughannock Creek was used as a source of power for mills and a gun factory in the early 19th century.
During the second half of the nineteenth century, steamboats, railroads and Victorian hotels were built in the region to serve tourists who traveled to view the falls. By 1925 the hotels were failing due to a decline in tourism, and New York State began acquiring land to form a park.
J.S. Halsey built a two and a half story hotel in 1850, known variously as the Cataract Hotel or Taughannock House (or simply as Halsey's Hotel) at the Taughannock Falls Overlook. Visitors could reach the hotel by taking a train to Cayuga Lake, take a steamboat across the lake to Goodwin's Point, then finally board a stagecoach to reach the hotel. The hotel site today is the location of the park visitor center and parking lot.

It is a spectacular site! This video is a loop of one minute of continuous footage captured in the natural amphitheater into which the 215-foot cataract plunges.

Oak Harbor on Cayuga Lake, Trumansburg, New York in the Finger Lakes Region
Oak Harbor is twelve gorgeous building lots in a very special lakefront homeowners association bordering the 800-acre Taughannock Falls State Park. Lot owners share almost 300 feet of Cayuga Lake shore line. The vision of Oak Harbor is to foster the accessibility of lake home living by sharing the cost of maintenance and taxes amongst an association of non-lakefront lot owners.
Comprising thirty acres of mixed mature hardwoods and conifers, the property is home to deer, turkey, red fox, loon, and a long-time resident red-tailed hawk. Lots range in size from 1.40 to 2.53 acres; most have grades suitable for spacious lower level walkouts and many offer panoramic views of Cayuga Lake.
Located just two miles from the Village of Trumansburg shops and services and the highly regarded school district, the easy commute to Ithaca is via State Route 89, a lovely highway along Cayuga Lake's west shore. This is the opportunity to live in the solitude at Oak Harbor while being close to entertainment, professional services, shopping and museums in Ithaca and the convenience and charm of Trumansburg.
Year-round accessibility to your home at Oak Harbor is ensured by a broad paved town-owned road that winds from Route 89 to the lake shore. Lots to the north of this road border a dramatic, slate-lined gorge. The southern lots border Taughannock Falls State Park whose hiking trails offer spectacular views and unique geological formations including the 215-foot Taughannock Falls, 33 feet higher than Niagara.
