Our History

West Shore Apartments, LLC is a family owned and operated business located in Ithaca, New York. The business was started with a three family apartment building on the West Shore of Cayuga Lake in 1967. We, Bob and Linda Terry, lived in one unit and rented the other two. As our family grew, eventually to six children, we moved to our present home and office at 107 Worth Street, which is three blocks from Cornell University. We are so pleased that as of 2011, our daughter Karla, who graduated from the Cornell Hotel School joined our business.

Most of our apartments are within walking distance to Cornell or an easy 5-8 minute drive from the lake to either Cornell or Ithaca College. Happy tenants are our highest priority. We strive to provide apartment living for the best value at a reasonable price. In order to achieve this goal, we offer 24-hour maintenance as well as prompt and courteous service.
