Ithaca house description

Opened in the summer of 2013, Willow Creek has space, beauty, privacy and the ideal location next door to Taughannock State Park and Cayuga Lake as well as the Cayuga Wine Trail and only ten minutes from Ithaca.

Sleeping twelve people in six bedrooms, furnished with either a queen or king bed and the luxurious Sealy Posturpedic Euro Pillow-Topped mattresses our guests rave about, this house boasts five bathrooms to pamper all of the guests. There are two huge master suites, each with a king sized bed, and sliding doors leading out to the upper deck or lower patio and back yard. Three bedrooms are located on the main level and three bedrooms are on the lower level. The main level is accessed by a few steps up onto the front porch. Note: we allow up to fourteen people in your group if some are children.

With so much space indoors, you won't know where to relax and enjoy the company of your fellow vacationers, whether they are family or friends. The expansive living room has views of the back yard, fire pit and woods, a wood burning fireplace and seating for ten. The lower family room has the same great views, seating for eight, a wood-burning fireplace and a 55' HDTV with BluRay player. Adjacent to this is the beautiful 8' pool table we have added for your enjoyment. You will also find a table and chairs just off of the family room for playing a friendly game of cards, board games or setting up your laptops. The huge kitchen can accommodate chefs and assistants at the same time.

Outside, you have three acres of lawn, gardens, seven person hot tub, barbecue with picnic tables and a fire pit with 12 Adirondack chairs to enjoy in private since the other houses on this lovely street are a distance away. And yet, you are moments from a state park, Cayuga Lake - the largest of the Finger Lakes, award winning wineries, restaurants, pubs, shopping and more. Walk to the end of the street and you are at Taughannock Falls State Park and the upper gorge rim's hiking trail.

This is an amazing property, and we are proud to add it to our Classic Country Vacation Homes as a choice for discerning travelers.

                      Car: Recommended

                      Outdoor beauty and activities abound in the Finger Lakes, with over 150 waterfalls to view, hiking and biking trails everywhere and pristine lakes to spend time on and in. Bike along the scenic byway of Cayuga Lake. Cross-country ski in a national forest, through state parks and across farm fields while enjoying magnificent views. Visit organic farms to pick your own fruits and vegetables or come to the local farmer's markets where you can purchase from a plethora of items including meats raised on humane, free-range farms. These markets even have stands which prepare food to enjoy onsite while you shop.

                      The Cayuga Lake Wine Trail is located less than five minutes from Willow Creek, and within less than one hour you can be at over 100 other Finger Lakes wineries, including those on the Seneca Wine and Keuka Wine Trails. Cars and drivers are available for hire to take you on a wine tour, or you can join an organized tour by van, trolley or boat for an amazing and unique wine tasting experience.

                      Ithaca, 10 minutes from the house, has many wonderful restaurants and dining options, as well as shopping, theaters, art galleries and museums. It is also home to Cornell University and Ithaca College. Higher learning centers make for a diverse, culturally rich environment in Ithaca.

                      About the owner: Mitch and I (KC) have spent years learning what travelers are looking for and how to pamper them while operating the Halsey House B&B in local Trumansburg for over a decade.
