Ithaca chateau / country house description

Country Lodge style Home:Hunters Welcome
This is a unique 4-bedroom, 2-bath, 3-story lodge-style home set on 13 acres of woodlands and rolling fields located 2 miles outside the town of Spencer, NY. The house has a beautiful view of meadows and wooded hills and is ¼ mile off a country road, with lots of peace and quiet. This is a wonderful place to enjoy nature, wildlife, and the outdoors.
The A-frame forms the 20-foot-high ceiling of the living room, which features knotty pine walls, wood beams, a fieldstone chimney, and a huge glass wall that opens onto a 12x24-foot second-floor deck. On this floor you’ll find a large, fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, dining room, bath, and a bedroom with a private deck. The first floor has a bedroom, family room, large bath, and utility/storage areas. The third floor consists of 2 bedrooms in a loft that overlooks the airy living room.
The 4 bedrooms contain 2 queen-size beds, 3 full-size futons, and 1 twin bed; additional sleeping space is available. The living room and family room have couches, recliners, rockers, and 2 large TVs. There is wireless high-speed Internet service and a landline phone for local calls only. The house is fully equipped with sheets, towels, microwave, dishes, cookware, utensils, etc., and is ready for your stay.
There is no smoking in the house. The property and house is dog friendly – a great place for dogs to run. There is a fire-ring, and a brook along the property edge. The décor is hunting-lodge style, with mounted deer, turkeys, pheasant, and elk antlers, plus lots of wildlife art and carved decoys.
The town of Spencer is about 16 miles south of Ithaca and 20 miles east of Watkins Glen. There are lots of attractions within an easy drive: Finger Lakes wineries, State parks with waterfalls and gorges, Tioga Downs (harness racing and gaming), Watkins Glen racetrack, Corning Glass Museum, antique shops, Quilt shops etc. Spencer has a grocery store, bank, gas station, dollar and hardware stores, churches, hair salon, library and several good restaurants. It’s an easy drive to full shopping areas, malls, and upscale dining. There is an 18-hole golf course and country club nearby.
Great place for a retreat whether it be with family, or for those who like to get away on a scrapbooking or sewing retreat, as well as a refreshing time for church groups. Any outdoor activities are at your own risk.
