Cascadilla School Boathouse is a historic boathouse located on Cayuga Lake at Ithaca in Tompkins County, New York. It was built in 1894-1896 in the Shingle style. It was built by the Cascadilla School as a structure to store rowboats.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991.[1]

The Cascadilla Boat Club currently leases from the city of Ithaca the first floor of this historic structure for $46.17 per year in perpetuity. Continuing to use the boathouse for its original purpose, CBC runs a competitive Scholastic Rowing Program as well as Youth and Adult Learn to Row classes from April through October. Cascadilla Boat Club is a not-for-profit organization, founded in 1977, with the mission of making the sport of rowing available to the entire Ithaca area community.
