The is a house built into a barn. It has rustic charm and modern comforts. It's situated in a beautiful valley and has a lovely view. The back porch and yard are nice places to relax outside. There is a basketball hoop in case you like to shoot hoops. It is 8 miles south of Ithaca, which takes about 15 minutes to drive. There is no real public transportation, except for a bus that runs during the day if you want to walk the half mile up to the highway and flag it down. I wouldn't recommend that.
