Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

This is a rustic and cozy vacation camp that has been partially modernized with an addition containing two bedrooms. The original part of the building still has that Adirondack camp feel; a little rustic, but very private. Close to Hammond Hill State Forest with many miles of trails for mountain biking, hiking and cross country skiing. The cottage sleeps 5 to 7. In warmer weather, there is a bunkhouse (separate building) which can sleep 2 more people and functions as a third bedroom.

Michael's cottage is perfectly located outside of Ithaca. It is a lovely, rustic home that offers a lot of character, warmth, and serenity. There is no shortage of peace and quiet! It is not too far from town, yet allows the visitor to feel like they have escaped into the woods. …

I currently live a couple hours away in Rochester and booked the cabin the day before a last-minute trip with a couple close friends. Well, I loved it so much here that after our original 2 night stay, my friends went home and I decided to extend my stay through the rest of the w…

Response from Michael:
Thank you for the kind words, Jade. That was a crazy week with all the snow! Here is an update on our rural DSL. Our township applied for a rural infrastructure grant and they got it! We are getting fiber optic sometime this summer (we hope)! Woot! Meanwhile, I installed a small battery back-up on the router, which I think will help the reliability while we are waiting for that major infrastructure upgrade. :-)

Mike and Ray were great host! The place is much larger and even more picturesque than you would expect. We came for a weekend getaway from NYC and wished we booked longer. Take advantage of the beautiful tub and all of the walking trails around. If you want time to unwind an…

Beautiful cozy little cottage! Very nicely equipped. Coffee, tea, and food stocked for breakfast. Best of all there fresh eggs from the host's chickens! Would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Ithaca.
