Private 4 bedroom house with a 30 acre forest in a quiet corner of town. Private hiking trails and stunning views of Ithaca, nature, and wildlife.
While it feels far away from civilization, it is only 5 minutes downtown, and 10-15 minutes to Cornell and Ithaca College.
Note: To keep costs down, the loft is closed for reservations with less than 8 people. Please ask if you need an exception to this, extra fee may apply.
This is a beautiful home in the woods, recently remodeled; 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, hardwood floors throughout, and a cozy place for a couple or a family.
It's not a place for a large, drunken gathering, and we're pretty serious about our floors, house rules, and total number of guests/visitors.
In the winter months, watch deer run across the property, and light a nice, cozy fire in the woodstove.

Atención a los huéspedes
Someone will likely meet you to exchange keys, and then the place is yours!
If there is anything you need, there are friends/neighbors/family available nearby to help. I do welcome and encourage a phone call or picture message when everyone is settled in.
Otros aspectos destacables
In the Winter, there is a woodstove in the living room and wood available in the greenhouse, and we encourage guests to light a fire and cozy up.
There are additional instructions for the safe, efficient operation of our catalyst-style woodstove if you'd like to use it. (There is also central heat with normal thermostats)
If you'd like to have a gathering/cookout with more than your booked guests, (family/friends in the area), please ask us first so we can make sure our place is a good fit for you. Note: An extra fee may apply depending on what you intend to do, extra trash/cleaning, etc.
NO SMOKING / NO PETS / NO EXCEPTIONS!
Immediate forfeiture of deposit and you'll be asked to leave! We may also charge you an additional $250 cleaning fee and charge you to replace bedding and repair floors. We have pet allergies, and some of our confirmed guests are allergic to pets. Additionally, dogs/cats WILL scratch the floors just walking around.
If you have to smoke, it needs to be outdoors, away from open windows, and we don't want to find cigarette butts on the yard.
OUR HOUSE IS A SHOES-OFF HOUSE!
We recently refinished our floors and we ask guests to leave their shoes in the entry way. Our floors are kept nice and clean!
--Outdoor shoes bring in dirt/mug that scratches the floors, and heels scuff and scratch as well. Bring a set of slippers or clean flip-flops if you don't want to walk around in socks. If there is mud/grass in the house, we will not be pleased!
--Please don't drag around our furniture; Lift, don't slide! Even though furniture has plastic/felt sliders, they can pick up debris and scratch if dragged.
--Similarly, pets scratch floors (especially stairs) very easily which is another reason PETS ARE NOT PERMITTED!
FINALLY, THIS IS NOT A FRAT HOUSE
While we don't mind our confirmed guests enjoying a few bottles of wine or beer, we DO NOT want our home to be used as a party destination. You MUST contact us if you intend to host an event with more than 10 people at the house so we can determine if our place is right for your gathering. If you do host a party or large gathering without our consent, you will be asked to leave, forfeiting your reservation and deposit!
Quick Tip: If you need to rent tents, hire a DJ, order a keg, or have a caterer, our place is probably not right for you!
GARBAGE / RECYCLING
Finally, this is Ithaca, NY; an environmentally friendly town. Our property has a 3kW Solar system, greenhouse, fruit trees, and a garden. We ask that guests try to conserve water and recycle responsibly (recycling is a local law). You are also encouraged, but not required, to compost vegetable food scraps, paper napkins, paper plates, etc.
Durante el período del 18 de Noviembre de 2017 - 01 de Marzo de 2018 la estancia mínima es de 7 noches.
