"My friends and I rented this house for an extended weekend, and could not have been happier with the accomodations and location of this rustic yet charming getaway.
The farmhouse itself is old, but very comfortable and spacious, accomodating 6 of us easily. We took many of our meals at the house using both the outdoor barbeque and the indoor stove. Everything worked as expected, and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could possibly want for cooking and dining.
There is a working fireplace in the living room which we took advantage of during our stay, and there is a firepit on the front lawn which we put to use one night under the stars. There is even a working telescope in the living room which we brought outside to view the craters on the moon.
The house itself is located less than a 10 minute drive from lake Cayuga, and about 20 minutes from the city of Ithaca. If you are familiar with Ithaca and its surrounding landscape and feautures, then you already know how beautiful the area is. The property the farm is on is no exception. We found many winding trails in the rear of the property which eventually led down to Salmon Creek where we had an amazing afternoon adventure enjoying the sights and sounds of the natural environment.
As noted in the desciption, this rental does not offer the distractions of more modern accomodations such as TV reception or Internet access (unless you have a smartphone, and yes, coverage is good). However, these conveniences were not missed in the least since there was plenty to do and see during our stay."

"The cottage was wonderfully comfortable and gave us a place to relax and enjoy my daughter for a week. When I asked if there was a roasting pan for thanksgiving dinner our hosts were kind enough to deliver one to us on our arrival. Perfect week."

"We recently rented both the carriage house and the historic church, sharing the property with another family, for Cornell graduation weekend. The location and property were perfect for all of us to be able to gather and celebrate. Plenty of room and gorgeous outdoor areas!"

"at the corner was a great house for our ski group of 15 people. it had a common meeting room in the dining room for eating, games, and visiting . i fell in awe of its ceiling that looked like a birthday cake, but upside down. it had a second living room for a little more quiet aided by the pellet stove . our group fit the bedrooms perfectly.
the finger lake was excellent for both skiing and wine tasting. we will return sometime hoping the weather to be a few degrees warmer."
