Notes:

In July and August, there is a one week minimum stay, check in day is Saturday for 2016, but beginning in 2017, will be Friday during these summer months. Additional Optional Fees: Event fee (event held on the property such as a wedding, etc, that involves guests other than those registered (additional security will be required as well) $800-1500 depending on the size of group.

Cleaning fee: This fee will not be charged if you leave the house in a broom swept condition, but if you do not, cleaning fees will start at $150, larger fees for excessive messes.

Additional room fees: For the 9th or 10th bedroom (each with private bathroom) it will be $350 week or $60 day.

Our check in time is 4:30 (no early arrivals, the house will not be ready) and check out is by 10:00am (the cleaners arrive promptly). It is a large house to turnover and all of that time is needed to prepare the house nicely for guests.

Holiday and IC/Cornell graduation weekends will have different minimum stays and rates. Please ask

we require a deposit of half of the rent & tax to reserve, the other half is due 30 days PRIOR to check in along with a security deposit of $600.

The area is famous for its many gorges and waterfalls. Also, the fingerlakes wine trail is close by for wine tasting and tours. Most of these attractions are within a 15 to 20 minute drive, there are some that are within a half an hour, such as downhill skiing. The area sports live theater, museums, science and nature centers, artisan shops and excellent restaurants.The Ithaca Farmers Market on the lake and many area artisans are also worth checking out!
