We're close to everything wonderful in this beautiful Finger Lakes: hiking, biking; wine, cider, art, & cheese trails; farmers markets; gorges, streams & lake; swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing; a myriad of art galleries & musical choices
A French visitor dove in one end of our clean country pond, emerging at the other side of its cool, fresh length to proclaim: "this is paradise on earth!" We agree, and welcome you to come find out why! Soak in the sun from 1 of 3 porches; relax in a wind-rocked hammock; explore 50+ acres of walking trails with lake views, a glacially carved gorge and a waterfall; revel in spectacular star-filled skies on clear nights; lose yourself watching the flames of a fire bowl; enjoy all the beautiful birds and other offerings of nature all around; play piano or ping-pong; bike every style/distance. Just minutes away, hike state park gorges; swim indoors or out (in pond, creeks, and lake); experience the delicious bounty and tremendous homegrown talent of the Finger Lakes at local farmers' markets, great restaurants and fun festivals; listen and/or dance to every musical genre at various venues; catch world class theater, museums, and galleries; etc! We welcome kindred (kind, considerate, respectful) visitors to enjoy 1-2 bedrooms (each with a double bed) and/or a comfy pull-out double couch; each room has its own bathroom, too; internet, off-street parking; potential kitchen and/or laundry access. We're about 15 minutes/8 miles NW of Ithaca, NY, home of a Ithaca College and Cornell University, with all their intellectual and cultural offerings.
Breakfast optional, per mutual advance arrangement.
While unable to state this easily from the choices provided in the drop-down menu: There are two bedrooms, each with a double bed; these share access to a private full bathroom. There is also a sun room with a pull-out comfy double couch; this, too, has access to a full bathroom. So 2-6 people can fit comfortably. As long as they are respectful of this being a family home, guests are welcome to enjoy the whole house (kitchen, living & dining rooms, porch areas with the exception of the master bedroom suite), surrounding yard and trails.
If I am able, I will happily interact as much or little as guests would like, and to give guidance on local adventure options. (As a 40-year resident, I can provide a lot of info!)
Due to environmental sensitivities in our family which can send us into asthmatic crisis, use of room deodorizers, any smokable materials (including vaporizers or electric cigarettes), incense and/or perfumes is not accepted while in our home.
Follow the Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated...or even better! Compassion and mutual respect go a long way.
Keep the backyard fence gate closed.
Be respectful in all ways (voice volume, footsteps, door opening/closing); especially quiet between 10pm and 9am.
Take responsibility for all your actions. Leave a space how you find it, or nicer, so that others may use without cleaning up someone else's stuff.
Due to sensitivities which can send us into asthmatic crisis, use of room deodorizers, incense and/or perfumes is not accepted anywhere on our property. No smoking of any kind, nor incense nor perfumed fragrances (including aftershave lotion) indoors or out. Exception: pure essential oils.
