Charming, Spacious Farmhouse With Modern Addition - Peaceful Setting Near Ithaca

Charming and comfortable 1860’s farmhouse with a handsome addition built in the late 1990’s, including a beautiful, stone-walled courtyard. The original farmhouse’s large kitchen features an, island, built-in breakfast nook and tile flooring. There is a large yard (approximately one acre) with fruit trees. Hardwood and tile floors run throughout the house, there is a dining area as well as a spacious living room area with a convenient new pellet stove for quick warmth and turn-key live fire ambiance. The large ground-floor bedroom gives onto the stone courtyard and includes a striking stone fireplace (wood-burning). Many of the upstairs bedrooms feature skylights and other interesting appointments. One of the two full bathrooms includes a walk-in tiled shower with two shower heads. There are six formal bedrooms with an additional room available for 1-2 people each. Relax in the completely private stone-walled courtyard. We rented this home as a regular residential lease for the past several years and this year converted it to a fully furnished vacation home. We use the home occasionally as a guest house for visiting family and have fully outfitted it with high-quality antiques and everything you could need for a complete vacation. The kitchen is fully equipped including a full array of appliances. Conveniently located five miles from Ithaca College and six miles from Cornell, this is as close to Ithaca as one can be and still have a pastoral, peaceful setting. Surrounded by state parks, gorge hikes and all the wonders of the Finger Lakes, this home is a perfect base for experiencing the area. On-site laundry is included and a trash receptacle is located on the property. No pets, non-smoking.

Excellent Property!!
We rented this property for a mother daughter slumber party trip. Our group consisted of five moms and six tween and teen girls. We could not have been be happier with our rental selection. The purpose for our trip was to spend quality time visiting with one another. (We enjoyed crafting, playing games, cooking, playing in the snow) This property was an ideal choice. The home is way more spacious than depicted in the photos. (We moms were able to visit in peace while the girls did their own thing) It is absolutely filled with charm--beautiful antiques! The kitchen is very well stocked for cooking. (We cooked and baked all our meals over our five day visit) The home was super clean. The Halls were exceptional hosts. We were welcomed with fresh flowers, apples and cookies. We are sure to return!

Family Vacation
Combination of old and new. Beautiful location for us to be together. None of us had ever visited Finger Lakes before, and this was a place that made it easy to get around. The patio was a favorite spot at night, to talk about the day and plan the next one. All of us would reccomend this comfortable home.

5/5 Excellent

Great experience all around!
We couldn't be happier with our stay. The house has that country feel inside and out. I actually kind of wish we didn't have as much planned so we could have enjoyed it more!

5/5 Excellent
