Car: Recommended

The area is famous for its many gorges and waterfalls. Also, the fingerlakes wine trail is close by for wine tasting and tours. Most of these attractions are within a 15 to 20 minute drive, there are some that are within a half an hour, such as downhill skiing. The area sports live theater, museums, science and nature centers, artisan shops and excellent restaurants.The Ithaca Farmers Market on the lake and many area artisans are also worth checking out!

Why the Owner Chose Ithaca:
We use this lovely retreat as a health retreat center several times per year. In between, it is offered as a special vacation rental.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is wonderful wildlife, it is very peaceful and tranquil. It feels as if you are secluded in the country, but a 15 minute drive gets you downtown.
