About the Property

Chateau / Country House, 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 5

The arrival of spring brings so many exciting new things to see and do. Birds are starting to nest, spring trees and flowers burst forth, wild animals are preparing to bring babies into the world, and the streams and waterfalls are full and glorious.

The cottage has blooming trees and flowers - the forsythia is striking! Everything is just starting to turn green and it's time to break out the grill and eat outside.

Take a hike on one of the many hiking trails and watch for Trillium, Spring Beauty, Trout Lily, Marsh Marigold, Shadbush and Bloodroot, among many others.

Car: Recommended

There are too many attractions here to list them all. Hiking, sailing, biking, golfing and a trip along the Finger Lakes Wine Trail are favorites for many people. This is a mecca for antique hunters, and anyone with an interest in classical architecture should drive through the nearby Village of Trumansburg with its many historic houses. There are many State Parks in the area, and most of them have glorious waterfalls, hiking trails and many scenic gorges. The Art Trail runs directly past the house and during the open tours it’s a wonderful way to view local artists at work. The Museum of the Earth and the Science Museum are favorites of kids of all ages. Cornell Lab of Ornithology is worth a visit and the entire area is great for bird watching.

There are several live theater groups and great music opportunities for any sort of music you can imagine. Great local restaurants for just about any cuisine you can imagine.
