Trumansburg, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathroom House 10 Minutes From Ithaca (Sleeps 12)
Opened in the summer of 2013, Willow Creek has space, beauty, privacy and the ideal location next door to Taughannock State Park and Cayuga Lake as well as the Cayuga Wine Trail and only ten minutes from Ithaca. And now, the Black Diamond Trail is open from Trumansburg to Ithaca to bike, hike and cross-country ski through the beautiful countryside!
Sleeping twelve people in six bedrooms, furnished with either a queen or king bed and the luxurious Sealy Posturpedic Euro Pillow-Topped mattresses our guests rave about, this house boasts five bathrooms to pamper all of the guests. There are two huge master suites, each with a king sized bed, and sliding doors leading out to the upper deck or lower patio and back yard. Three bedrooms are located on the main level and three bedrooms are on the lower level. The main level is accessed by a few steps up onto the front porch. Note: we allow up to fourteen people in your group if some are children.
With so much space indoors, you won't know where to relax and enjoy the company of your fellow vacationers, whether they are family or friends. The expansive living room has views of the back yard, fire pit and woods, a wood burning fireplace and seating for ten. The lower family room has the same great views, seating for eight, a wood-burning fireplace and a 55' HDTV with BluRay player. Adjacent to this is the beautiful 8' pool table we have added for your enjoyment. You will also find a table and chairs just off of the family room for playing a friendly game of cards, board games or setting up your laptops. The huge kitchen can accommodate chefs and assistants at the same time.
Outside, you have three acres of lawn, gardens, seven person hot tub, barbecue with picnic tables and a fire pit with 12 Adirondack chairs to enjoy in private since the other houses on this lovely street are a distance away. And yet, you are moments from a state park, Cayuga Lake - the largest of the Finger Lakes, award winning wineries, restaurants, pubs, shopping and more. Walk to the end of the street and you are at Taughannock Falls State Park and the upper gorge rim's hiking trail.
This is an amazing property, and we are proud to add it to our Classic Country Vacation Homes as a choice for discerning travelers.
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.

About KC Christopher & Mitch Clarke
Mitch and I (KC) have spent years learning what travelers are looking for and how to pamper them while operating the Halsey House B&B in local Trumansburg for over a decade. We bring that knowledge to each vacation home we offer and you can rest assured our standards are at the highest level you will encounter in the Finger Lakes region and beyond.

Nice place to stay
This place hit on all accounts with what our large group was looking for. It had bedrooms for everyone, sufficient bathrooms, a large open floor plan and a nice outdoor spot to hangout. The house was super clean and provided everything you need including towels and linens.
For any large group looking to stay close to Cayuga, I would absolutely recommend this place.
The house is beautiful. I definitely enjoyed my stay. The group I stayed there with also loved it.
The house was decorated beautifully and was so big and spacious. I would definitely recommend it and I would stay there again. This was actually the 2nd property belonging to classic country vacation homes I stayed at. They're homes keep attracting me to choose them. I enjoyed the winery, hiking, and snow tubing on this trip. I would definitely come back.
Excellent home, great hosts. Highly recommended.
Our group of ten were greeted by Mitch and given a tour of the property and everything we needed was explained and all questions answered. The water cooler was a nice bonus. The kitchen was well-stocked, bed's comfortable and overall it was a very clean place. There was plenty of room for all ten of us with room to spare. The extra amenities like the fire places, pool table, hot tub, and large gas grill were the icing on the cake. The owners were very responsive throughout the entire process and made things very easy for us.
Best property I have ever stayed at!
Beautiful well maintained house in a great location. Awesome bedroom and the bedding is amazing. Great kitchen!
Amazing Getaway Retreat
This was a great place for a Cornell reunion of friends, and we absolutely enjoyed all the amenities they had to offer, not to mention being a prime location from Ithaca/Cornell, and the wineries. And the owners made everything so easy for me and my guests. Would definitely come back again.
Perfect Place for a Perfect Vacation
I cannot say enough positive things about our stay at this home in Trumansburg. The home was perfect for the 9 of us, with bedrooms and bathrooms more than sufficient for our needs. The home was luxurious, beautiful, and exceeded our already high expectations. It is ideally situated to take advantage of all the numerous activities and attractions that the Finger Lakes area has to offer. We used it as a base of operation for all of day trips and found that the 5 days we booked were not nearly enough. We found the owners, KC and Mitch, to be very responsive to our needs, informative about the house and surrounding area, and very courteous and friendly. I would highly recommend this home to any group or family visiting the area as the perfect place to stay. We are definitively considering returning to visit again.
Outdoor beauty and activities abound in the Finger Lakes, with over 150 waterfalls to view, hiking and biking trails everywhere and pristine lakes to spend time on and in. Bike along the scenic byway of Cayuga Lake. Cross-country ski in a national forest, through state parks and across farm fields while enjoying magnificent views. Visit organic farms to pick your own fruits and vegetables or come to the local farmer's markets where you can purchase from a plethora of items including meats raised on humane, free-range farms. These markets even have stands which prepare food to enjoy onsite while you shop. The Cayuga Lake Wine Trail is located less than five minutes from Willow Creek, and within less than one hour you can be at over 100 other Finger Lakes wineries, including those on the Seneca Wine and Keuka Wine Trails. Cars and drivers are available for hire to take you on a wine tour, or you can join an organized tour by van, trolley or boat for an amazing and unique wine tasting experience. Ithaca, 10 minutes from the house, has many wonderful restaurants and dining options, as well as shopping, theaters, art galleries and museums. It is also home to Cornell University and Ithaca College. Higher learning centers make for a diverse, culturally rich environment in Ithaca.
