Property description

A special house in a special neighborhood. The Forest Home Lodge is located ½ mile from Cornell. Enjoy the gracious gardens and porches of this historic home. Two bedrooms, kitchen, and private bath on the third floor of the home, with private parking.

Forest Home is a secluded hamlet located adjacent to the Cornell campus. Stroll along the tree lined shores of Beebe Lake to campus, then return to enjoy the tranquility and privacy of your third floor room(s). The Lodge was built in an era when woodworkers prided themselves on their craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Our guest rooms are located on the third floor, separate from the rest of the home. There are two guest rooms, a full kitchen, plenty of closets and drawers, a private bath, breakfast room, and a beautiful view of the grounds and the creek that fronts the property. A picnic grove is located across the road, and the Cornell Plantations are just footsteps away.

We live in the home and will be happy to answer your questions to help you to find your way around Ithaca and Cornell. We are pleased to welcome you to the Forest Home Lodge!

From our doorstep it's an easy walk to Cornell, where you can catch the TCAT bus most anywhere in Ithaca.
