About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10 in beds

Good Vibrations offers amazing views in a private and peaceful setting with a newly remodeled interior featuring five king-sized bedded bedrooms and three full bathrooms. No other vacation home along the Cayuga Wine Trail can accommodate five couples in comfort and privacy like this. Amenities include a 7 person hot tub, pool table, 2 fireplaces, WIFI, outdoor patio with gas barbecue, fire pit and picnic table. The Black Diamond Trail which links the Taughannock Falls State Park with Cass Park (8 1/2 miles of trail) runs next to this house. PLEASE NOTE: NOT SUITABLE FOR WEDDINGS OR RECEPTIONS.

From the moment you follow the long driveway along the beautifully manicured lawns and gardens, you will feel the serenity come over you.

The main level features huge picture windows offering views from every room, looking out at Cayuga Lake and the hills beyond or the lovely gardens surrounding the home. The public areas flow from the retro-inspired living room with fireplace to the dining room and kitchen. Down the hall you will find a full bathroom, a bedroom with a bow window and king sized bed and the master bedroom suite with it's own picture window and full master bathroom. All bedrooms feature new Sealy Posturepedic Plush Euro-Pillowtop mattresses.

Back in the main area, take the open staircase to the lower level and again, picture windows greet you with the magnificent view. The game room features a pool table, big screen TV, bar area and a second fireplace. The door will lead you to the brick patio, seven-person hot tub, barbecue and picnic table. Four acres of lawn and gardens give you ample space for lounging or playing games on the grass. There are three more bedrooms and a full bathroom on this level as well as an area for playing games or poker.

We have designed and decorated Good Vibrations to take advantage of the house's 1973 architecture with a fun, retro feel without any of the tacky accouterments that era was known for. Of course there is WIFI, flat screen TV's, a Dvd player and groovy furniture. Whether or not you bring your polyester leisure suit and watch Saturday Night Fever is up to you!

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.

We designed, created, owned and operated the Halsey House Bed & Breakfast in Trumansburg for ten years and love sharing our beautiful area with visitors from around the world.

Why KC Christopher & Mitch Clarke chose Cayuga Lake

The location, the house and property itself was ideal for our next vacation rental house. We fell in love at first site, as we walked in the door and look directly out the picture windows to this amazing view. It is captivating! This may well become the house we will retire in many years from now.

What makes this house unique

It has it all! Privacy, views, unmatched comfort, location along the Cayuga Wine Trail, very near state parks, waterfalls, Trumansburg, Ithaca, restaurants, theaters, golf, fishing, the list can go on and on.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at KC & Mitch's beautiful vacation home and everyone in our party was very impressed! The house was decorated very nicely, well appointed and extremely clean! There were 7 adults and 2 teenagers in our party and we all had more than enough room. The kitchen had every utensil, appliance and more for every need and the king size beds were wonderful. The pool table was a hit as was the gorgeous view and beautiful patio/firepit. KC and Mitch were very easy to deal with and most accommodating. We were in Ithaca for the NYSPHSAA girls swimming championships held at Ithaca College. The location of the house was very convenient for our many trips to the college (about a 20 minute drive) and to stores, restaurants and pretty much anything you'd need. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Ithaca area!

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing and in perfect condition! Spotless!

Great view and great location - right next to a walking/biking trail that will take you down to the falls!

Wine tasting and golf

  • 5 of 5

We rented Good Vibrations for a wine tasting and golf weekend with four other couples. This property was perfect. With king beds in all the bedrooms everyone was comfortable. The kitchen has things we don't even have at home. We enjoyed the fire pit, hot tub and pool table. KC and Mitch are easy to work with. We are talking about returning next year.

Relaxing, Rejuvenating with everything you could want!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I had a wonderful vacation this year at Good Vibrations. Both the property and home are exactly as pictured. This is our second year working with KC and Mitch. They make everything so easy - they are warm, welcoming and available should anything come up. Their homes are Top Notch! You can pack light and know you will be taken care of. They have everything you need ... so different from other homes my family has rented. I love all their touches to make us feel pampered. The beds are a dream, the furniture is stylish and well cared for, and the bathrooms are super clean and beautiful. There are extras of everything ... towels, linens, comfy blankets, starter paper products, cleaning supplies and more. Thank you KC and Mitch for another rejuvenating vacation!

Great family reunion at Good Vibrations

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 had our reunion at Good Vibrations in July, The house is exactly as you see it on the website. It is tastefully decorated, kept very clean and has a nice view.

It was very easy to work with KC at the time of making the booking and the tips that followed. KC and her husband, Mitch, were very non-intrusive during our entire stay. Mitch met us at the house on our arrival and did a quick walk through. He was professional, pleasant and had a good sense of humor.

The kitchen is well equipped with everything one can think of. Some late evenings, we enjoyed sitting outdoors by the fire pit enjoying our drinks and s'mores. We also enjoyed the hot tub. All in all a very pleasant stay. Thanks to KC and Mitch for allowing us to use their home. Our family has returned with beautiful memories of our stay at Good Vibrations and Ithaca. We highly recommend Good Vibrations.

Perfect place for a special family event!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 family members in Ithaca for a wedding. Good Vibrations provided a great respite from the wedding excitement.

The furnishings are all top quality, the decor is comfortably chic and there was plenty of space for all. You can see the care and attention to detail that KC and Mitch put into this home. It was well-equipped to accommodate our large group.

The property is lovely with expansive views of nature all around. We saw deer in the yard each day and thousands of fireflies sparkled at the edge of the lawn at night.

We were lucky to be there for the July 4th weekend and could see up to 6 sets of fireworks displays from various villages along Cayuga Lake as well as the huge display from Ithaca itself.

We had night free from wedding activities, so we enjoyed the fire pit and spa as we watched the fireworks.

I'd definitely return to this peaceful spot!

Car: necessary

Good Vibrations is 2 minutes from Taughannock Falls State Park, the highest single drop waterfall northeast of the Rocky Mountains. Cayuga lake's public beach and marina are also 2 minutes away and in 5 minutes you can be enjoying the Cayuga Wine Trail.

There are hiking trails and waterfalls throughout the Finger Lakes region, don't miss Robert H. Treman State Park (it's like being in a Tolkien novel) and the Watkins Glen State Park hikes. Buttermilk Falls is another of our local favorites, with an easy walk into the bottom of the falls, complete with swimming hole, as well as a challenging hike up the sides of the waterfalls.

This upstate region is home to acres of farmland which produce excellent local organic foods that have inspired chefs from around the world to open amazing restaurants specializing in seasonal, local ingredients and pastured-raised livestock. You can also purchase these ingredients yourself at our local Trumansburg and Ithaca Farmer's Markets and prepare your own delights at home in Good Vibrations.

Ithaca is home to Cornell University and Ithaca College. You can feel the pulse of energy brought by these establishments and the opportunities that radiate from them. Enjoy sporting events, performances and lectures, visit museums, wildlife sanctuaries and botanical gardens. Tour the beautiful grounds of the campuses and then people-watch while eating at a local pub. You will fall in love with our area.
