Ithaca house description

Good Vibrations offers amazing views in a private and peaceful setting with a newly remodeled interior featuring five king-sized bedded bedrooms and three full bathrooms. No other vacation home along the Cayuga Wine Trail can accommodate five couples in comfort and privacy like this. Amenities include a 7 person hot tub, pool table, 2 fireplaces, WIFI, outdoor patio with gas barbecue, fire pit and picnic table. PLEASE NOTE: NOT SUITABLE FOR WEDDINGS OR RECEPTIONS.

From the moment you follow the long driveway along the beautifully manicured lawns and gardens, you will feel the serenity come over you.

The main level features huge picture windows offering views from every room, looking out at Cayuga Lake and the hills beyond or the lovely gardens surrounding the home. The public areas flow from the retro-inspired living room with fireplace to the dining room and kitchen. Down the hall you will find a full bathroom, a bedroom with a bow window and king sized bed and the master bedroom suite with it's own picture window and full master bathroom. All bedrooms feature new Sealy Posturepedic Plush Euro-Pillowtop mattresses.

Back in the main area, take the open staircase to the lower level and again, picture windows greet you with the magnificent view. The game room features a pool table, big screen TV, bar area and a second fireplace. The door will lead you to the brick patio, seven-person hot tub, barbecue and picnic table. Four acres of lawn and gardens give you ample space for lounging or playing games on the grass. There are three more bedrooms and a full bathroom on this level as well as an area for playing games or poker.

We have designed and decorated Good Vibrations to take advantage of the house's 1973 architecture with a fun, retro feel without any of the tacky accouterments that era was known for. Of course there is WIFI, flat screen TV's, a Dvd player and groovy furniture. Whether or not you bring your polyester leisure suit and watch Saturday Night Fever is up to you!

NOTE: Not suitable for weddings, receptions, parties or gatherings which include outside guests. Property is for the use and enjoyment of registered guests only, unless prior approval from owners is given.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Good Vibrations is 2 minutes from Taughannock Falls State Park, the highest single drop waterfall northeast of the Rocky Mountains. Cayuga lake's public beach and marina are also 2 minutes away and in 5 minutes you can be enjoying the Cayuga Wine Trail.

                      There are hiking trails and waterfalls throughout the Finger Lakes region, don't miss Robert H. Treman State Park (it's like being in a Tolkien novel) and the Watkins Glen State Park hikes. Buttermilk Falls is another of our local favorites, with an easy walk into the bottom of the falls, complete with swimming hole, as well as a challenging hike up the sides of the waterfalls.

                      This upstate region is home to acres of farmland which produce excellent local organic foods that have inspired chefs from around the world to open amazing restaurants specializing in seasonal, local ingredients and pastured-raised livestock. You can also purchase these ingredients yourself at our local Trumansburg and Ithaca Farmer's Markets and prepare your own delights at home in Good Vibrations.

                      Ithaca is home to Cornell University and Ithaca College. You can feel the pulse of energy brought by these establishments and the opportunities that radiate from them. Enjoy sporting events, performances and lectures, visit museums, wildlife sanctuaries and botanical gardens. Tour the beautiful grounds of the campuses and then people-watch while eating at a local pub. You will fall in love with our area.
