One of the most distinctive historic properties in the Finger Lakes, the former White Gazebo Inn B&B, is now open for weekly vacation rentals!
The White Gazebo property is home to an original Victorian gazebo built in 1852, as well as a picturesque period barn, sprawling pastures, and quiet woodland privacy. The regal, historic home includes three/four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms. Private terrace and patio for gathering, picnicing and barbequing, and extensive grounds for walking, or just sitting and sipping wine and enjoying the bounty of the Finger Lakes, or for doing just about anything. Just dream!
The main house is a charming, cozy home with a recent addition for more space and key amenities- a Master Bedroom suite, a cozy family room, a breakfast nook, and a utilities room with a full laundry. The second floor has two bedrooms and a shared bathroom with windows facing the historic gazebo. Large closets. The home comes furnished with sheets, towels and pillows.
Outside- the grounds provide a peaceful relaxing setting. If the Lakes are not keeping you cool enough, an inground pool is here for your swimming enjoyment (Closes second week of September so you can enjoy that last swim over Labor Day weekend).Tables, lawnchairs and gas BBQ grill are at your fingertips.
The main house and cottage may be rented together; rates shown here are for the main house and grounds use only. However, the cottage may be rented at a sharp discount along with the main house, as we truly wish for our guests to enjoy the full intimacy the property offers- it is its true hallmark. Even if you don't need to sleep two more people, the cottage is useful as a poolhouse changing room, or for lawn picnic/event kitchenette convenience.
Minimum stays may be negotiable depending on booking calendar; please call to inquire. Fall minimum stay is 6 nights.
If the cottage is NOT rented with the main house, guests should be aware that it is possible that the pool area may be shared with cottage guests; driveway and parking do not need to be shared, however, as the cottage has private driveway access.
Please call for seasonal weekly rates on the cottage. It is not generally rented by the night, or for less than three days. Available during summer months only.
Special requests for reunions, events, weddings, or receptions on the grounds are negotiable with a full property rental fee (House plus cottage). Call for details.

About the owner: I welcome you to my childhood home!... where growing up in one of the best small towns in the country, Trumansburg, provided me fond, lasting memories. And as you can see, I always took great pride in taking care of the family property- that's me keeping the Gazebo spotless oh so many years ago... Even then, I always knew there was no place like home. Experience our home for yourself and you will agree.
Why the Owner Chose Trumansburg, NY, USA:
For years, my parents welcomed guests from all over the world into our home as the White Gazebo Inn Bed and Breakfast. We hosted parents and students from Cornell and Ithaca colleges. Grassroots music fans, international scholars and wine enthusiasts all which enjoyed the welcoming sight of the White Gazebo as you drove into Trumansburg. Growing up here I have fond memories of the many family gatherings of picnics under the trees to celebrating a family wedding in the gazebo. The White Gazebo is serene, private, and convenient to many of the major attractions of the Finger lakes. We will help you navigate your way to them with pleasure! After all, we now live elsewhere, and could vacation anywhere, but we choose to come back year after year and spend our precious vacations in the Finger Lakes. You should, too!
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Why you will LOVE the Finger Lakes... (And why the White Gazebo is the perfect base for enjoying all the best the region has to offer... THE WINERIES: (Of Course...) The White Gazebo is uniquely situated for you to enjoy easy access to both the Cayuga Lake and the Seneca lake wine trails: The Cayuga Lake wine trail starts one mile from here, and wineries such as Americana (2 miles away) are now places to gather and relax, and enjoy both cuisine and entertainment as well as the fruits of the vine. Seneca lake wineries such as Hazlitt's and Wagner have become popular gathering places for Friday night music on the Terrace and other special events, and are only 10-15 minutes away from the White Gazebo. THE OUTDOORS: With Taughannock Falls park just one mile away and its miles of hiking trails, lake access, fishing and boating options, there is no end to the outdoor activities you can pursue right here. Additionally, the proximity of the Finger Lakes National Forest to the White Gazebo opens even more possibilities for hiking, fishing, and more. Even Lake access to Seneca is only 15 minutes away! There's Montezuma N.W.R, etc. We love to kayak, bike, and fish, too, and can help you find your way to the activities you desire! THE REGIONAL FOOD REVOLUTION: This region is the site of the most dynamic natural, organic and local food revolution anywhere. We can get your started with how you can enjoy the farm market scene, local producers, and soon you'll be out on the grill, cooking up anything you can imagine, all produced and raised within miles of Trumansburg! MUSIC, CULTURE, CRAFT FAIRS AND OTHER EVENTS: All within easy range of the Gazebo!: The Grassroots Festival; Ithaca Highland Games; Watkins Glen Italian Fest; Hammondsport Craft Fair.. THE MUSEUMS AND REGIONAL HISTORY: With the Museum of the Earth just 5 miles away, and the Musuems of Ithaca (ScienceCenter, Johnson Art Museum) only a few minutes further, there's plenty to do even on rainy days!
