Tranquil Lodge Near Cornell University

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this home with its tranquil wooded setting. It provided a lovely, relaxing retreat from the busy Cornell commencement activities! The home's architectural features are stunning and the decor is tasteful, sophisticated and contemporary. The two decks with freshly potted begonia arrangements made for a perfect setting to dine and enjoy relaxing conversation.

Everyone also enjoyed the owner's gracious supply of items; the complimentary bottle of wine, the great supply of beverage glasses, votives, patio cushions and firewood for both fireplaces - just to name a few! The owner's response time to every communication was outstanding. Every need was anticipated to ensure our stay was enjoyable!

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 7 adults recenlty stayed at this wonderful property. The property is exactly as pictured, and even better. The kitchen and pantry were stocked with a wide array of cookware and spices! The 3rd bathroom is off the loft with a small shower. Eva, the owner, was extremely helpful and left a bottle of wine upon arrival. Our security deposit was promptly returned after inspection. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return!

Beautiful Property & Home

  • 5 of 5

My group and I were just reminiscing about our wonderful stay in this lodge and I realized I had forgotten to write a review! This is an exceptional property with a beautiful forest view and a very well maintained and thoughtful interior. Each room was very clean and comfortable with excellent beds. The bathrooms even had Burt's Bees products. As other reviewers mentioned, the house is very well stocked with cookware and dinnerware. There is even a cabinet of random and useful cooking supplies. Eva, the homeowner, was lovely and gave us plenty of information about the property and area. The house is a quick drive to the Commons with plenty to do. You will definitely enjoy your stay here!

Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect. Located just minutes away from Ithaca, nestled in a wooded area, it has the feel of being secluded with all the privacy you would want without having to be in the middle of nowhere. Ithaca was amazing; vineyards, hiking trails, gorges, waterfalls, and great places to eat. The lodge itself is very lovely and charming and the kitchen has everything you could ever need. The homeowner was very helpful and considerate. I only wish we could have stayed longer. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this house.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

A group of girlfriends and I (all Cornell graduates) stayed here for a mini reunion last weekend. The house is the perfect distance to Ithaca - about 10 minutes - for easy access to Cornell, Collegetown, and Wegmans runs...but far enough away to escape the current college scene. The house was exactly as pictured and had more than enough room to hang out (the porch is a great spot!). We cooked dinner one night and were super impressed by all of the tools available to us - the kitchen has everything! Eva was a great host, quickly answering any questions we had before we arrived and helping me through my first HomeAway booking experience - she also left us a bottle of wine and fresh flowers to welcome us!

We all kept saying this would be the perfect spot to return to again soon! Thank you!!
