  • Cozy lakehouse

    "My girlfriend and I stayed at Tom and Christine's place for a week. It's a reasonably convenient place to stay for a Finger Lakes adventure. We spent our time touring wineries on other lakes and going back and forth between Ithaca. Ithaca, as well as the areas we visited for wineries, were about an hours drive. I'm sure there are closer wineries as well, but the big clusters are on other lakes. The place itself is 4 small bedrooms. It's cozy and had everything we needed to cook, enjoy the lake front, etc. We particularly liked the bonfire pit being directly in front of the water, great for roasting marshmallows, bundled up, looking as the waves roll in and out. The only thing that gave me pause with the reservation was that electronic payments weren't setup. I was really uncomfortable sending a check for the rental amount and the security deposit, but took a leap and did so. Received a check back for the security deposit, so my worries were allayed, but still, shouldn't be a big issue to setup safer payments through this site or airbnb. That said, great hosts, cozy place, lots of bedrooms, and right on the lake. Hard to beat it for the off-season price :)"

  • This house made our family wedding weekend perfect!

    "We stayed at this home for 4 nights for a family wedding on Shelter Island in mid-September. From the moment we arrived, the house was perfect: we had a large party - several couples, a young child, several adults who wanted their own sleeping spaces - and the house was perfect for accommodating everyone. Moreover, its central but somewhat secluded location, gorgeous water view and ample outdoor seating, not to mention the indoor pool, made it an ideal place for a large family gathering. This house made our wonderful wedding weekend that much more wonderful! Thank you!"

  • Great location, great apartment

    "We stayed in this Williamsburg apt. for 6 nights in March. There are so many good things to say about it that it is hard to know where to begin. The location is terrific. It is literally a block from the L line and two subway stops from Manhattan. About 5 stops from Union square. It made it easier to get around parts of Manhattan than being in Manhattan. We walked down to Bedford St., which is the busy part of Williamsburg. It was a mob scene on a sunny weekend so we were glad we were further away from Bedford St. The apt. is very spacious and clean. It has a very large bedroom with huge closet. It would have been nice to have a small dresser with drawers but we put folding things in hanging shelves in the closet. The bed was comfortable. The weather was quite cold when we were there but the apartment was nice and warm. The hot water pipe for the radiator in the bedroom could be noisy sometimes. The apartment was well stocked with dishes, pots, glasses and things like salt, pepper, oatmeal. The kitchen was a full kitchen and the island/table was great. The wifi worked very well and the apartment had very good natural light. We will definitely try to stay here again if we come back to NYC."

  • Perfect Getaway

    "We just spent a week at this cottage and had a wonderful time. Being able to canoe right from the property was great and the waterfront view was spectacular. The property was as described and came with everything needed. Aside from many spots to visit on the Sacandaga, we hiked some trails to other lakes in Fulton County and visited Saratoga Springs; great location."

New York is a hub of culture, history, diversity and excitement.

New York City is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, while the rest of the upstate region is made up of different cities, town and suburbs. Manhattan and Staten Island are islands off the state’s mainland and accessed through tunnels, bridges and ferries.

Getting around New York is a breeze with an intricate yet user-friendly public transit system as well as the famous yellow taxis. In the city centers, walking is a great way to move around while still experiencing the sights and sounds of the different areas. However, car rentals may be need for those who exploring attractions upstate in areas like the Finger Lakes.

This area is recognized as the shrine of baseball, and with its small-town charm and stellar views of the countryside, it’s definitely worth the visit. It’s the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum as well as the Fenimore Art Museum and the Glimmerglass Opera. After a pickup baseball game, check out the local cultural attractions for a full day of fun.

Staten Island Ferry: Traveling between Manhattan and Staten Island best done aboard the famous Staten Island ferries.

Along your journey, you can explore the unique attractions each borough has to offer.

Ellis Island: One of the most famous historical sites associated with freedom is New York’s Ellis Island. Situated in Upper New York Bay, Ellis Island was the gateway for millions of immigrants coming to America during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The island is also home the the Statue of Liberty, which was usually the first thing immigrants saw when they came off of the boats. Ellis Island houses a museum of immigration where visitors can learn all about the island’s history and even trace their own ancestral roots.

The park is the perfect location for a relaxing stroll or a lovely lunchtime picnic. Enjoy a friendly game of frisbee or hop in the saddle and take a horseback ride through the North Woods - you might actually forget you are in the country's biggest metropolis! Providing stunning visuals in all four seasons, Central Park is the perfect place to experience some greenery and nature in the middle of concrete and skyscrapers.

Niagara Falls: Niagara Falls is best seen from the Maid of the Mist, a boat cruise ferrying visitors right alongside the rapids. You can also experience the falls from Prospect Park Point walkways. It’s quite a sight to witness this majestic natural attraction in person.
