About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bath, Sleeps 6

Curl up with a book in the sunroom and you may never want to leave. Enjoy this cozy three-bedroom home, furnished with two queens, and a twin and a day bed, sleeping a maximum of six people. Enjoy cable TV, a DVD library, hi-speed wireless internet, a library of classics, a fully-stocked kitchen, and a piano.

Enjoy coffee out front on the brick patio, or a glass of wine out back by the koi pond. Planning to cook in? Pick fresh herbs from the garden.

Everything is provided for your comfort: linens, towels, soap, shampoo, and coffee and cream—a few groceries and you’re ready to cook.

Explore the house with a treasure hunt that has cache at the end.

Within an hour's drive you can hike, swim, see waterfalls, taste wine, or shop. Or, you can just relax at a house you can call home.

About Kitty Hall-Thurnheer

I love to be pampered so it gives me great joy to create beautiful, comfortable spaces with little surprises of wonderment. Prior to owning a guest house, I was a software guru, a jet pilot, and a journalist. Now I focus on keeping a balance between work and play. If there is anything you need or want, please let me know so I can make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

The Beautiful Enchanted Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfectly clean, beautiful & there were plenty of towels, supplies, kitchen items, etc. Kitty included home baked blueberry coffee cake, which was delicious! She also has a scavenger hunt set up, which was amusing and put us in a vacation mood. Elmira is a great location for visiting the areas sights and the local restaurant, the Hill Top Inn, had both a terrific view and excellent service. We hope to return some day!

Elmira, NY house

  • 4 of 5

We are from Texas so we don’t really understand the no air conditioning concept. There were two window units and a fan downstairs and two window units and a fan upstairs. The kitchen and bathroom can get very warm, but if you leave all the A/C’s on and the bedroom doors open it helps cool down the other rooms. There is one TV downstairs in the living area. Bathroom was fully stocked and beds were comfortable. Kitchen was fully stocked. The treasure hunt was fun. Very quiet street and very nice neighborhood. Plenty of room to park cars in the driveway.

Charming, Lovely

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful weekend stay at the Cottage on Glen. Kitty, the owner, was excellent from the start. Communication was top notch, and everything that I could have needed was available in the cottage: from extra toilet paper to zip lock bags, coffee, creamer, deodorant, tampons...she really has thought of everything.

The house is charming. Two small but reasonable size bedrooms with queen beds, and a third bedroom with a twin. Plenty of space for a family. The kitchen is useable, with plenty of pots and pans, and the dining room is lovely. Great gathering space in the living room with comfortable seating. The outside is also lovely, though it was very cold while I was there!

Would highly recommend Kitty's place on Glen. It is a quiet, residential, street, and easy to get around from, too.

Clean, comfortable, and charming

We had a wonderful stay in Elmira and especially loved the peaceful setting and cozy accommodations. Kitty thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The toiletries in the bathroom; the fresh baked coffee cake; and the treasure hunt all added a special charm.
