This home became our perfect hideaway at the end of each day.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for the two of us. The countryside location was very peaceful. The home was clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen. We toured Finger Lakes and parks each day and loved coming back each evening, having dinner and relaxing on the deck. The Del Maurs were easily accessible for any concern or questions. Highly recommend.

Super clean, comfortable and peaceful. We had plenty of privacy and the location afforded easy access to the surrounding sites and wineries. The directions to the house were crystal clear, too! We had a great time. Thanks Betsy and Alan ! ps Punk's Place down the road has great food.

Comfortable and roomy!

  • 5 of 5

Place was a lot bigger than I thought! Quiet and comfy- with some great views. Very clean with lots of added amenities. Owner had supplied a lot of extras like toilet paper, coffee, oils for cooking and spices- which was great! During our stay we saw, woodchuck, rabbits, turkey and deer! Would highly recommend.

Family Reunion Success

  • 4 of 5

We rented both of the Del Mauros properties for a family reunion, birthday weekend. Although both my mother and I live locally, we were able to rent their properties and get all family attending into the rental houses and our two our homes. Between the the two Del Mauro properties we housed fourteen (14) , but MORE IMPORTANTLY, the Country Home was the perfect spot to have everyone come together. Some nights we had 28 people.

There's a large deck at the Country Home, which we were able to gather on, sitting and visiting while watching the deer and turkeys in the field. The gathering room is large and we had the birthday celebration in there one night with all 28 folks!

Many in our group enjoyed hiking and walking the woods around the Country Home. Some decided to take the quick drive to Ithaca. But, all came together at the end of the day to visit by sitting on the deck.

Betsy and Alan are a joy to work with. They are responsive, accessible and attentive to their guest needs.

Everything we needed----linens, towels, cookware, spices, etc-- was available in the large kitchn.

I would never have been able to house the 28 people in my home and the ease of working with the Del Mauros and renting their properties make the reunion weekend a success and truly memorable for everyone that attended.

We hope you will be able to stay again sometime soon. Thanks, Betsy & Alan
