  • Excellent Country Getaway!

    "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."

  • Comfortable and Relaxing

    "We were here over Columbus Day Weekend and had a wonderful time. The house was easy to move around in and the views of the lake were great. Having tea at the gazebo for beautiful sunrises and sitting around the fire pit at night watching a beautiful "orange" moon rise over the lake was incredible. Close enough to downtown Penn Yan to enjoy the local restaurants and centrally located to imbibe a little/a lot upon the many vineyards. Even had time to play a round of golf at the beautiful Lakeside course."

  • Great graduation weekend

    "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!"

  • Nice vacation spot for two small families

    "We had a great time staying at this house by Taughannock State Park. All the other comments on here are correct, but I wanted to add a few things that I would have liked to have known prior to staying here. 1. The house is very close to the road. The main photo on the site here is taken right from the edge of the driveway and Route 89. For some reason I was expecting this to be a quiet spot, set back from the road, but if you are there in the summer, prepare for traffic noise, trucks, motorcycles, etc. It was loud. Also, despite only being 4/10 of a mile from the State Park, due to the speed of the traffic and shoulder width, walking there seems a bit foolhardy. 2. At least half of the windows downstairs don't open either due to them being built that way, or simply being broken. It wasn't possible to get a cross breeze, so it's a bit warm in the house. It would have been nice to have a few more fans available. There are three "vornado-style" plus a very small desk fan. Besides that, it's very well equipped, the beds are VERY comfortable and it is a great location for getting to Ithaca/Taughannock, etc. While I'm not sure we'd stay here again, it is definitely worth a look. The owners were great, and even turned us on to some Chanterelles in the backyard!"
