Relax in a private apartment in the heart of New York's Finger Lakes region. Nestled between Ithaca and Watkins Glen, this is a great jumping off point to nearby state parks, colleges, wineries, lakes, trails, and waterfalls. Our house, which has been featured on the Ithaca-area's green homes tour, is on a secluded 12-acre property with walking paths, nature pond, and picnic areas.

The space
The one-bedroom apartment in the lower part of our home is perfect for 2 to 4 people. Enjoy a quick bite to eat or make a gourmet meal in the full kitchen. We provide light breakfast items (granola, cereal, milk, eggs, bread, tea, and coffee) so you can start your day right. Take a sunset stroll on our winding walking paths, strike a campfire, and listen to the amazing sounds of nature. Staying longer or enjoyed the outdoors too much? Wash your clothes in the provided washer and dryer. We have books, board games, and a 4K TV for those rainy days.

You can spend your entire time here as a retreat and return back to your busy, crazy life fully recharged. Or venture out and hike next to waterfalls at the many area parks, go on a wine tour, or visit Cornell University and other area colleges. Go back in time at the Museum of the Earth or get your geek on at the Ithaca Sciencenter. Both are very family-friendly. There are lots of area events from the Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance to NASCAR at Watkins Glen International.

Guest access
Guests have private access to the apartment and shared access to the outside property with the homeowners.

Other things to note
If you have more that two people staying, we have a pull out sofa or we can provide up to two comfy single air mattresses already made up that is perfect for kids or adults. Just make sure to add the extra people on the listing so we know how to prepare your space.

The apartment is naturally cool in the summer so no AC needed!

The TV does not have cable service, but is Smart/WiFi enabled so you can continue to stream your favorite shows using your own streaming accounts. We'll clear the accounts after your stay if you forget to do so.

Since we are in the country, cell service can be spotty. But we do have good Wi-Fi. Tip: newer cell phones often come with a Wi-Fi calling setting (depending on your carrier). Connect to our Wi-Fi and turn this feature on.

Location

Trumansburg, New York, United States

The Finger Lakes area of New York is an amazing place to visit year-round. Take in the view of the largest single-drop waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains - and it's just 10 minutes away! Visit Cornell's Sapsucker Woods Sanctuary for some hiking and bird watching. The area provides an abundance of stage theater, festivals, music, restaurants, museums, gardens, wine trails, and night life. Yes, we do have culture in upstate New York!

There are lots of good restaurants in downtown Ithaca. Most of the "big box" stores and chain restaurants are on Elmira Rd in Ithaca. The nearby village of Trumansburg has restaurants, ice cream shops, a small bowling alley and of course is home to the annual Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance in July.

During your stay
We love meeting new people, so you're welcome come by and say hi and ask us questions. We have one dog, a very friendly beagle named Maggie and a mostly indoor cat, Tess. They stay in our part of the house but if you would like to meet them let us know. You will likely see us about the property taking Maggie for walks, gardening, or just hanging out on the porch. But what ever your level of comfort is, we'll respect your privacy.
