About Amy Newman
I moved to Ithaca in 2002 and love it. There's so much to do nearby, and yet it's a very peaceful place. I graduated from Cornell in the 1980s and always wanted to move back here. I'm a senior lecturer at Cornell.
Amy Newman purchased this House in 2002
Why Amy Newman chose Ithaca
I fell in love with the house when I bought it. It's a solid, mission house but feels modern, especially with the backroom addition that faces the view. You can see the lake and Cornell from almost every room in the house.

Roomy, bright, updated bathrooms and kitchen, comfortable.
The property was easy to find (on Rt 96) overlooking Cayuga Lake. It was PERFECT! We came into town for my daughter's wedding, and this house allowed me and each of my 4 children (2 with significant others) their own rooms with the minimal of bathroom sharing. All the bathrooms were newly updated, as was the kitchen. It was very well stocked with consumable goods (I always bring my own soap, paper towels, TP, etc) in case we ran out. The owner was easy to communicate with, responsive and helpful. She clearly takes pride in the house. I would rent it again in an instant!
Thanks for the great review, and this was the year for Ithaca weddings! I'm glad you found a lot of space. The 5 separate sleeping areas on 3 different floors -- and 3 showers -- definitely helps with privacy.
Beautiful and spacious
Great large house
Great stay, Amy is always in touch right away. The house comes with all you could possibly need from coffee and spices to cards and games. It is conveniently located to get to most places. It is much larger than the pictures. There is a lot of road traffic noise though. But overall a great place to stay with a large group.
Wonderful Ithaca Vacation House!
We stayed here in July 2017. The house is in great condition and was perfect for two families (4 adults, 4 children). It's very close and convenient to downtown, and the views of Cayuga Lake and Cornell are amazing. And the owner was great with communications and answering questions. Definitely recommended.
I'm glad to read this! I try to be responsive and am always available for questions.
Everything was very nice. The house was perfect!
A beautiful home with a beautiful view
My college roommates and I rented this home for our 10 year reunion. We had everything we could need in the house and the owner was very responsive to any questions. Best of all, the porch had a full view of Cornell, making it the perfect location to gather and reminisce about old times.
