About Marcie Bishop
We are retired from Cornell (John) and public school administration (Marcie). We live here with our son from Ghana, who works and takes classes at Cornell. Our three other sons are in their 30's and live in NY and PA. We travel when the house is rented. It is a pleasure to share it with others . However, since this is our only home, we are limiting rentals in 2017 to a minimum of four days, preferably more. We welcome your questions.
Marcie Bishop purchased this House in 2002
Why Marcie Bishop chose Ithaca
I love the large kitchen,, the deck and back yard, and pool. It is a very comfortable home, and the pool is a big attraction. The location is excellent: less than 10 minutes to Cornell, 15 minutes to Ithaca College, and near restaurants, stores, and live theater (Kitchen and Hangar Theatres), as well as hiking trails, waterfalls, wineries...the list goes on! There is a mall with a movie theater, stores, a grocery store, and a bus stop, all less than ten minutes away.

nice and quiet neighbourhood
Clean and comfortable
There was an issue with the pool , so we couldnt use it . So no comment on that.
Beautiful and spacious home close to Ithaca and Cornell sites!
This home was the perfect place for 8 adults and 8 kids. The adults loved the spacious kitchen, living room and comfortable beds. The kids loved the larger finished basement and pool! It was the perfect place to stay with a large group while visiting Ithaca.
The owner was wonderful accessible and easy to work with. The house and grounds are beautiful.
Perfect for our family
Plenty of space. Lots of beds. And a beautiful pool area with a grill. There is only one king bed but a number of queen sized. It worked out great for our extended family attending Cornell graduation.
This large space was really great for our group!
This Ithaca home is beautiful and had enough sleeping space for all 16 of us when we needed it. The kitchen was well-equipped and the pool was an extra perk! We were able to entertain some of our friends who were staying elsewhere!
Marcie was very attentive and really worked with us and when we had one issue with a table blowing over, she had someone there within and hour to deal with it.
The only downside was that we happened to be there on an extra hot weekend and it was stuffy at night with no A/C. I can't remember if I was aware of it or not. Anyway, I know that heat is not usually a problem in Ithaca and this was our only issue.
Perfect Place for large family-conveniently located
This property is ideal for a large group - especially the backyard. Our family rented this property for Cornell's graduation and it was perfect. The house is clean with three full baths and two powder rooms. The backyard area has a pool and plenty of room to set up tables for large family dinners. My mother-in-law and I are extremely fastidious and we were pleased with the condition of the property. The property did match the photos provided and the description provided.
If you are looking for a clean and convenient rental for graduation - this is your place.
Additional information about rental rates
Entire house is available at listed price. In addition, individual rooms may be rented at a reduced price (sharing space with family member). Guests would share kitchen but have private bathrooms and exclusive use of the pool.
