The house is not far from Ithaca or the Cayuga Wine Trail. It was very quaint and provided all the essentials for a weekend get away!
Wonderful, comfy home in a beautiful setting near everything!
We were there for two nights for Thanksgiving, hiking, and being with family. We saw Bald Eagles, woodpeckers, Cayuga Lake in the mist, and a couple of great trails. The house far exceeded our expectations as far as being comfortable and warm with fabulous views.
Our host, Bryan, could not have been nicer or more helpful. We had a couple of questions and he made us feel welcome and at ease.
We will most definitely rent this again. Wouldn't even think of another place.
Great place and clean
Thank you for the use of the home. It was great and fit our needs while in the area.
Perfect Woodsy Cabin!
The first thing we noticed when we walked in was how clean everything was! Even the downstairs area where the washer and dryer are is spotless, so that really made us happy right away. The house had everything we needed, even the bathroom upstairs was supplied with a few toiletries in case we forgot anything. It is located about a 10 minute ride out of the center of town perfect for us, because we like to be in the quiet instead of the city area. There is a small gorge waterfall that you can hear from the house and is a fun walk through the woods to check it out. Also if you take a right out of the driveway and stay on the main road you will find great hiking trails and many wineries to visit. Overall, we loved the house it had a lot of room for us, lots of outdoor space we can't wait to use when we visit again in the warmer months.
Peaceful location easy drive to many attractions
We rented this home for a few days while we attended the Wineglass Marathon in Corning, visited with friends and enjoyed several wineries and other area attractions. The location was an easy drive to everything and it was wonderful to come home to quiet surroundings where we enjoyed campfires at night and our grandchildren enjoyed exploring the woods. The house was cozy yet very large with plenty of room to spread out. The beds were all very comfortable and everyone slept well. You can hear some traffic noise from the bedrooms but there were no complaints from anyone. As stated in the house description, the bathroom in the basement is clean and usable, however the shower might be a challenge for the less hardy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced vacation. Bryan was a pleasure to work with from start to finish always answering any questions promptly!! Wonderful house and we hope to return if we are in the area again!
Comfortable, peaceful, it had what we needed, great location
This was a great place for the price! My family of 5 stayed here a week, and enjoyed a comfortable stay. The house was in a perfect location, close to Ithaca and Cayuga lake and many waterfall hiking spots that we enjoyed all week. It's also about a 30 min drive from Watkin's Glen, which we also visited. We enjoyed the large windows in the living room and the screened in porch, the peacefulness of being in the middle of the woods, exploring the back yard walking trails. I was thankful for the nice washer/dryer, because we did need to do laundry several times during our week. I was pleased to find some games to play there, fans in the bedrooms, cleaning supplies, plenty of clean towels, TP, etc. The kitchen was well equipped - the only thing we didn't find that we could have used was measuring cups for making pancakes. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was because there were a few ants getting into the kitchen and we had to spray around the window, and because the upstairs bathroom was a bit small and towels tended to stay damp with 5 people showering and no a/c in the bathroom. The bedroom and living room window a/c units kept the place plenty cool, even on the hotter days we were there. We found the beds to be very comfortable and we slept well. The landlord, Bryan, was very responsive - he got back to us right away to answer any questions we had, and he was very quick to meet the needs we had as well. We would certainly stay here again for that price.
The house is nestled in a forest on the Western shores of Cayuga Lake, five miles from downtown Ithaca, and five miles south of Taughannock Falls State Park. Taughannock Falls is the highest falls east of the Mississippi, and is taller than Niagara Falls. The house is on the southern end of the Cayuga wine trail, home to many outstanding vineyards and wineries that offer exceptional wines. Cayuga Lake is over 40 miles long, and offers all kinds of recreation from kayaking to jet skiing. Ithaca is, literally, surrounded by and filled with gorgeous gorges.
