Studio apt in victorian farmhouse. Private, romantic country feel. Surrounded by gardens and nature. Close to town and both colleges. Ten minutes to Cornell, 15 to Ithaca College or downtown Ithaca. Close to hiking and nature. Organic mattress. High quality linens. Record player and records, books and games. Working fireplace wood stove. Uncork some wine, cook a nice meal, unwind and recharge.

The space

This is a nice sized studio. Organic mattress, high thread count linens and towels provided, and all the amenities you need away from home. Working glass paneled wood stove near the dining table, lots of windows, new appliances, some cookware and supplies to cook and eat in, records and a record player, books and games. Perfect for a solo traveler, couple, business travelers, families. It's small, so really better for two, but it also works well for a couple with a child. If you have a child we can provide a pack and play and we have lots of toys, outside swing set etc. to keep them entertained that could be shared. Extra charge for third person over five years old (please send a special request). A few things to note to make sure this is the right fit for you: The bathroom is fine, it has a nice luxury shower head and bathtub, but it is a bit small. Also, we live next door and have two little kids. They are pretty quiet and we are on the go a lot so not always around but you may hear some sounds of a family sometimes here and there through the wall or if we are passing by the window.

Guest access

We live in the main house. The studio is a separate apartment with its own entrance. You can also make yourself at home to enjoy the acre of gardens, picnic and campfire areas or sit on the swing by the fish pond. Barn and main house are not for guest use.

Interaction with guests

We will be available if you need anything, but we like to give people their space so will leave you alone unless you reach out. We might be hanging out outside in one of the gardens sometimes - we garden a lot and our kids may be out and about helping. If you want to interact we'd love to chat with you, but if you want time to yourselves, we are also respectful of that. There is plenty of outdoor space to spread out.

Other things to note

Let us know if you want to build a fire in the stove and we will provide supplies for your first one. Additional firewood is available for $25 per fire.

It was a nice place and very quiet, I'd stay there again. The communication was great and was able to check in early! Wifi was slow, if your a streamer, other than that very pleasant stay.

2nd time staying here and would probably be my go to stay for future ithaca trips. it just provides everything you want to get away from the city. Sujata makes it real easy to get in and out of there and gives you all the privacy you need.

Very nice and quaint studio. Perfect for couples who want a quiet getaway from the noisy city. The record player and the great collection made the stay even better. Can't beat the value on this place.
