Trumansburg chateau / country house description

When you come home to Judy’s Guest House you’ll want to take a short walk across the wooden bridge to your own private little island with a babbling brook on either side. Take a picnic lunch or your morning coffee and relax while listening to the birds sing, or watch for the occasional deer to stop by for a drink while you relax in the shade of the majestic willows. On warm summer nights thousands of fireflies light up the trees and bushes.
The three bedrooms are designed for comfortable sleeping with two king beds and one single bed. The fully furnished kitchen is prepared for anything from a four course dinner to a late night snack, and a trip along the Finger Lakes Wine Trail will likely lead to ideal accompaniment.

While summer is beautiful in the Finger Lakes, fall and winter have their own special advantages. Fall colors can be spectacular and there are tons of local events - apple festivals, special new wine tastings, harvest festivals, football games, concerts and a chance to hike the local trails in a little less heat.

Keywords: Charming country home on 2 landscaped acres near Cornell, Ithaca College, Cayuga Lake, wine trails, fabulous waterfalls, artist trail and much more.

                  There are too many attractions here to list them all. Hiking, sailing, biking, golfing and a trip along the Finger Lakes Wine Trail are favorites for many people. This is a mecca for antique hunters, and anyone with an interest in classical architecture should drive through the nearby Village of Trumansburg with its many historic houses. There are many State Parks in the area, and most of them have glorious waterfalls, hiking trails and many scenic gorges. The Art Trail runs directly past the house and during the open tours it’s a wonderful way to view local artists at work. The Museum of the Earth and the Science Museum are favorites of kids of all ages. Cornell Lab of Ornithology is worth a visit and the entire area is great for bird watching.

                  There are several live theater groups and great music opportunities for any sort of music you can imagine. Great local restaurants for just about any cuisine you can imagine.
