Perfect retreat from New York City for me, my husband and our cat. Charming, historic exterior with a clean, modern interior. Beds were comfortable and the shower pressure was good (both are deal breakers when it comes to a nice rental). We loved spending time in the kitchen and on the porch. Great location surrounded by trees, but very close to Ithaca. Elena was excellent with communication and is very open to suggestions. We did not get a chance to use the outdoor features or go to the lake, but plan to when we return this fall.
