Property description

This is a special house in a special neighborhood. Forest Home is a secluded hamlet located adjacent to the Cornell campus. Stroll along the tree-lined shores of Beebe Lake to campus, then return to enjoy the tranquility and privacy of your third floor room(s). A picnic grove is located across the road, and the Cornell Plantations are just footsteps away.

The Lodge was built in an era when woodworkers prided themselves on their craftsmanship and attention to detail. Enjoy the gracious gardens and porches of this historic home.

Our guest rooms are located on the third floor, separate from the rest of the home. There are two guest rooms with plenty of closets and drawers and a beautiful view of the grounds and the creek that fronts the property. Rent one bedroom or both (prices shown are for one bedroom). The third floor also has its own kitchen, breakfast room, and bathroom, with private parking for guests.

We live in the home and will be happy to answer your questions to help you to find your way around Ithaca and Cornell. We are pleased to welcome you to the Forest Home Lodge!

From our doorstep it's a short walk to Cornell, where you can catch the TCAT bus most anywhere in Ithaca.
