Perfect for musicians, artists, dancers, writers, yogis, Zen students, chefs, athletes, and everyone else who loves quiet and gardens. Wonderful for business people who want a relaxing place to unwind. You can see the stars!
Great location for wine trails and hiking!
A magical place for relaxing and healing.
2 miles to Taughannock State Park and Cayuga Lake: swimming, fishing, hiking, BBQing.
All races, ethnicities, religions, nationalities, and genders are welcome :)
2 miles from Trumansburg, 8 miles from Ithaca! (a 15-20 minute pleasant drive to Cornell, a few minutes more to Ithaca College) Less than 2 miles from Taughannock Falls and the Gorge trail.
There is a quiet bedroom in back of the house, with windows on 2 walls. It has a top of the line, firm, but soft, totally organic latex queen bed from Earthsake (San Francisco). There is an air conditioner in this room only. Mostly the house stays nice and cool, but on those few hot nights, I want you to be comfortable!
The kitchen and living room form one very comfortable space. There is an upright, in tune, piano in the living room.
The shower has an amazing strong spray - it's tiny, a water saving device, and I haven't been able to find another one like it - I love it!
The Studio: the largest room in the house looking out on the gardens. It has a pristine bamboo floor and vaulted ceilings. The space was designed by a well known Brazilian architect who has done top of the line projects all over the world. She designed this lovely space for her own use. It has a great deal of light, and unusual windows. And...a small but very interesting and truly eclectic library! There is a comfortable vintage leather topped desk for your use, equipped with pencils, paper, etc.
The Studio is not a bedroom, per se, but there is an extremely comfortable and large, couch, and there is a futon rolled up behind the couch which you are welcome to use.
The house is delightfully uncluttered and clean!
There is WiFi, but there is no TV. Ahhh, so quiet and peaceful.
All cotton sheets!
Directly across the street is a large cultivated field, bordered by trees. And there are woods in back of the property. In season there are apple trees, a plum tree, raspberries, blackberries, and grapes. It's a truly peaceful retreat.
Trumansburg is a small town with an unusual variety of restaurants, from down home nothing fancy, to truly fine dining (farm to table, emphasizing local, in season vegetables, fish, grains, and meats), first class pizza, world class coffee, ice cream, even a small bowling alley with excellent gourmet food at reasonable prices and a full bar built from vintage bowling lanes. They're starting to call Trumansburg the Williamsburg of Ithaca!
Ithaca boasts all sorts of cultural activities, great music, theater, movies, dancing, and more restaurants per capita than New York City.
And there is Brownie's fruit and vegetable stand a short walk from the house. Get the freshest, best tasting corn at Brownie's!
There are literally dozens of wineries and breweries within less than a half hour drive. The Fingerlakes rock!!!
You will have exclusive access to the whole house, as well as to the grounds, in front and back of the house.
The left side of the driveway is reserved for your use. Two normal size cars fit easily, one behind the other.
There is another house on the same property that may also be rented to Airbnb guests. The houses are completely separate and private. There is a shared driveway.
Not currently recommended for small children: there are cabinets with things that children should not be getting into, such as tools, cleaning supplies, etc.
