About the Property
Close to Cornell and Ithaca College in rural Ithaca
We offer a time away from it all to be with those that matter most: Family, friends, yourself! Family Reunions and Celebrations are our favorite things (no weddings here, but you may stay here as family or friends of the wedding party)
Commencements and holidays are priced higher: Ithaca College and Cornell Commencements offer a special event reason for a family reunion. We have priced Commencements to include the "Bunkhouse" making it a 6 BR/3 full/2 half Bath home. (Commencements come with a bigger price tag--still a value vs hotels (who double and triple their prices) on those weekends)
Enjoy scenic views from lots of windows, a great room, a large dining room and huge gourmet kitchen. Relax with a glass of wine or wake up with a cup of coffee on one of three sitting decks. Whitetail deer, wild turkey, rabbits and chipmunks are likely to wander through our property while you are here. Coyotes often serenade us at night.
Three of the four bedrooms have gorgeous vaulted knotty pine ceilings which match the great room (Trophy Room). The remaining one, the Master Bedroom Suite, has a lovely Sanijet (tm) spa tub for two.
Brace yourself, the owner has a collection of lovely taxidermy in the Trophy Room. Also there is no TV service, but we do have a DVD player available if you let us know in advance. Cell service (Verizon) should work here, wifi internet is available, but is limited (no video please-it gets pricey as broadband, cable, etc is not yet available in this rural part of Ithaca)
Tenwood Lodge has 4 Bedrooms and 2 full and 2 half baths. Three of the bedrooms have one Queen bed, another has a combination of double and bunked twins so younger ones can sleep near parents or cousins can have a continuous slumber party. Should this NOT be enough space, we can add in the Bunkhouse (not listed at present) for an additional fee to sleep 6 more people (2 bedrooms, 1 Bath, and family room in an attached structure)
Our Vacation Rental is great for family gatherings and reunions, retreats, families attending weddings, and college commencements and reunions, in less than a year we've had all of them! (Please note: we are not a wedding venue, but can recommend two or be a homey base camp for attending area weddings, either as guests or family of the couple.)
Tenwood Lodge has been a member of VRBO for whole house rentals since May 2014.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We are Russ and Kim. We have five wonderful kids, growing or grown up already. We have been improving this property since we first purchased it in 2000 and there is always work to be done. It is quite likely that one or more family members will be around the property or across the driveway in the barn apartment during your stay. This listing is for the newest part, Tenwood Lodge, completed in 2013. We also have the bunkhouse (right side of the picture showing behind the low roof) which is not part of the 4 BR listing, but can be included for large groups for an additional price. Commencement pricing is for both the Bunkhouse and Tenwood Lodge (6 BR total)
Why the Owner Chose Ithaca, NY, USA:
We love the Ithaca area, this valley and the agricultural opportunity here in Danby. The views here of the wooded hillside and the growing corn are peaceful and relaxing.
