There are many good things to say about the Baldwin House. Trumansburg is a wonderful town and the center of town is only a few blocks away so walkers will enjoy the neighborhood. The parks are close by as is the golf course. Ithaca is a short drive as are many wineries. The property is expansive with plenty of outdoor seating and room to roam the gardens. The pool was large and grounds are well maintained. We liked the many tiki torches, large grill and there is plenty of outdoor seating. The property is well protected from the roads so young ones have plenty of room to run and play. A fire pit would be a nice addition for those cool Upstate evenings. The interior is well furnished and, with the exception of the stove, the appliances were new. The very quiet dishwasher, large fridge and washer/dryer stood out. A few words of guidance if you're considering this rental. We had 13 people of all ages staying at the house and that pushes the capacity limits. Luckily we had good weather and there was adequate patio seating but the dining area in the kitchen accommodates 8 so a larger group eating indoors together could be a squeeze. The interior layout is also narrow so, while the owners did a good job of space utilization given what they had to work with, I would suggest putting the early risers in the semi-private rooms and the rear double since the noise from the kitchen/dining and family room echoes off the vaulted ceiling into those sleeping areas. The owner was very pleasant, attentive to our needs and responsive to questions. I would recommend the Baldwin House and would return.

It is often hard to find a home large enough for our family to feel comfortable. The sleeping arrangements are almost perfect for a family of 10 adults and two children. The fenced in pool is ideal. This home is very well equipped with everything a family would need for a week. The location is perfect for all of the area attractions. We would definitely stay again if we return to the area.

My family and I recently used the Baldwin House for the Ithaca College Graduation weekend. Our group consisted of 9 adults and the sleeping accomodations were more than adequate for us. Not one person complained that their bed was not comfortable. The rooms were all clean and the bed linens were clean and crisp. There was plenty of extra linens, blankets, comforters and towels. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans, bowls and dishes. Spices, supplies and paper goods (paper towels, tissues and bathroom T-paper) were plentiful. The property owner met us upon our arrival and was attentive to our needs. When I called her regarding a few small questions, she promptly returned my calls if not immediately available. We were a little concerned when we pulled up to the side of the house as the exterior of the home shows its age and needs some maintenance. However, once we entered the home our concerns went away because the interior was well maintained and is a mix of well-kept old and remodeled new. Everyone in our party was pleased with the arrangements. We had friends that visited and were equally impressed with the casual and cozy atmosphere of the home. If we were to visit the area in the future, we could consider a return to the property.

Owner response: MaryAnn, Thank you so much for choosing The Baldwin House as well as taking the time to write a review. I'm very happy you, your family and friends were comfortable in our home. I completely understand your concerns when pulling up to the side of the house. We have one more project inside the home, then finally, we will renovate the exterior as well as paint. We hope to have the exterior painted by next spring. We do hope that you will consider visiting The Baldwin House again. Thank you again, and have a wonderful summer. Barrie

Dear Barrie, Oh My! What a lovely home & gardens you have created here. We enjoyed every nook and cranny- especially the artistic, creative, lovely touches. Thank you for having us. The pool was such a delight in the heat- & the grandchildren a ball. My husband and I repeated our wedding vows of 40 years ago with our children in a special little ceremony under the gazebo. Lots of photos and memories!! Many many thanks! We will be back to rent the Baldwin House again, soon.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: I own a Salon (Innovations Aveda Salon) for the past 19 years, And continue to work at my salon part time. After 15 years of working at my salon I needed a change. In 2001 I started a second small business, planning weddings and special events. In 2004 after spending more time working from my home, I decided to utilize our home that my Husband and I worked on renovating for 13 years. Hence The Baldwin House.
Why the Owner Chose Ithaca:
I moved to Trumansburg as a very young child in 1969. After moving about for a while between 1980-1993 I decided I wanted to be back in the Ithaca/Trumansburg or surrounding area. I was searching for a home to purchase but wasn't sure in what area. In 1998 I went to visit my mom as I often did, and noticed that The Baldwins Family House, 2 houses down from the house that I basically grew up in was fore sale. I never was in The Baldwin's home but I always loved how big it was, and the lawn and gardens always looked so perfect! My Husband and I called our realtor and asked if we could look at the house on 46 Elm st. ASAP. After 2 trips through the entire house and land, We knew this was the house for us, Despite the plaster peeling and falling off every single room in the house. My husband, Jeff is a carpenter among many other traits of building or renovating homes. I had always had a sense of design and a way of creating not so nice houses or apartments that I had rented, into very welcoming, comfortable, classy, and of course, always clean homes. After 12 years of renovating our very large house, 'The Baldwin House' We decided to offer our home to people that would be coming to this area for happy occasions such as, vacationing, weddings, College alumni, Cornell and Ithaca College Graduations, and family reunions. Welcome To The Baldwin House!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
My Husband and I love the location of our property. The house is located in the village of Trumansburg NY. The village has many things to offer within a short walk or drive. Although we are located in the Village of Trumansburg, It feels like we are in the country, while we are outside enjoying our pool, and gardens. We are only a 10 minute drive to the city of Ithaca for when we need supplies that Trumansburg does not offer, or if we need a night out in the 'City'.
