About Dennis Stein
Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I've called Ithaca and the bountiful Finger Lakes region home for the last 25 years. I live in downtown Ithaca and greatly enjoy the contrast between the vibrant urban downtown and the peaceful, wide-open vistas around the lakes. My co-owner Ed, also a transplant who takes inspiration from the natural beauty of the Finger Lakes region, has lived in downtown Ithaca with his family even longer.
Dennis Stein purchased this cottage in 2006
Why Dennis Stein chose Trumansburg
Twin Pines is a cozy cottage that many guests tell me feels very welcoming.
When the cottage went on the market in 2006, the seller shared that because of the sheer beauty of the view, several potential out-of-area buyers planned to tear down the cottage and replace it with a much larger contemporary structure.
I decided to buy the building so that its simple beauty and great view could be preserved and enjoyed by vacationers and guests.
What makes this cottage unique
Twin Pines is replete with original artistic details. Some of the furnishings are handmade, and the front door was crafted by a woodworking artist in Ithaca.
