About Barrie French

I own a Salon (Innovations Aveda Salon) for the past 22 years, And continue to work at my salon part time. After 15 years of working at my salon I needed a change. In 2001 I started a second small business, planning weddings and special events. In 2004 after spending more time working from my home, I decided to utilize our home that my Husband and I worked on renovating for 13 years. Hence The Baldwin House.

Barrie French purchased this house in 1999

Why Barrie French chose Ithaca

I moved to Trumansburg as a very young child in 1969.

After moving about for a while between 1980-1993 I decided I wanted to be back in the Ithaca/Trumansburg or surrounding area. I was searching for a home to purchase but wasn't sure in what area. In 1998 I went to visit my mom as I often did, and noticed that The Baldwins Family House, 2 houses down from the house that I basically grew up in was fore sale. I never was in The Baldwin's home but I always loved how big it was, and the lawn and gardens always looked so perfect! My Husband and I called our realtor and asked if we could look at the house on 46 Elm st. ASAP. After 2 trips through the entire house and land, We knew this was the house for us, Despite the plaster peeling and falling off every single room in the house. My husband, Jeff is a carpenter among many other traits of building or renovating homes. I had always had a sense of design and a way of creating not so nice houses or apartments that I had rented, into very welcoming, comfortable, classy, and of course, always clean homes. After 12 years of renovating our very large house, 'The Baldwin House' We decided to offer our home to people that would be coming to this area for happy occasions such as, vacationing, weddings, College alumni, Cornell and Ithaca College Graduations, and family reunions.

Welcome To The Baldwin House!

What makes this house unique

My Husband and I love the location of our property. The house is located in the village of Trumansburg NY. The village has many things to offer within a short walk or drive. Although we are located in the Village of Trumansburg, It feels like we are in the country, while we are outside enjoying our pool, and gardens.

We are only a 10 minute drive to the city of Ithaca for when we need supplies that Trumansburg does not offer, or if we need a night out in the 'City'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Barrie,

Oh My! What a lovely home & gardens you have created here. We enjoyed every nook and cranny- especially the artistic, creative, lovely touches.

Thank you for having us. The pool was such a delight in the heat- & the grandchildren a ball. My husband and I repeated our wedding vows of 40 years ago with our children in a special little ceremony under the gazebo. Lots of photos and memories!! Many many thanks! We will be back to rent the Baldwin House again, soon.

Family Get Together

We had a wonderful stay at the Baldwin House. All 14 of us always found something to do, whether it was using the pool, enjoying drinks in the cabana or site seeing in the Ithaca or Cornell area. A lovely remolded kitchen was stocked with several items that made our shopping list a little smaller. New washing and dryer located in one of the lofts was very helpful. A memorable time was had by all. Thank you, Barrie

Fantastic time at the Baldwin House!

  • 4 of 5
From the beginning of my booking, Barrie was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive to all of my questions and concerns.

Once our group had arrived, we were pleasantly surprised. The photos of the house do not do it justice! It's so much larger than any of us had imagined. We were also happy to also discover the updated kitchen which I was unaware of when I had booked the house back in the winter. As well as the separate dining area which seats a large group (I think 16).

The outside of this house is just as fantastic as the inside. Complete with a number of seating areas including dining patio, grill, pool area with many pieces of lawn/lounge chairs, bar with stools, and an outdoor canopy that is built into the ground for stability with comfy cushioned couches underneath.

The layout of the house made it easy for us all to have space from one another when needed and lots of communal areas where we can alternatively, be together. At any given time we were portioned between the outdoors, kitchen, dining, and living room which I forgot to mention is warm and well designed with a traditional meets modern family feel.

The only advice I would give is to be strategic when assigning people to their bedrooms considering 2 out of the 6 are not private. Make sure to have either early risers or people who sleep like the dead in those beds. The sound from the dining/kitchen area travels easily into those rooms. As well as the fact that one of them is smack in the middle of the 2nd floor and bathroom goers need to walk through that room in order to get to either of the bathrooms. To be fair, Barrie made me aware of these non-provate rooms ahead of time and it wasn't a huge issue for us. And the beds are super comfy.

Finally, we also appreciated the convenience of this house. It is only a few short blocks into the town of Trumansburg which has many small shops including a gas station, liquor store, restaurants, and most importantly......coffee (Gimme Coffee) which is also a coffee distributor to many independent coffee shops in Western New York. The house is also a 15 minute drive to Buttermilk Falls, Treman State Park, Wine Trails on either Cayuga or Seneca, and the town of Ithaca. Only a 5 minute drive to Taughannock Falls.

Barrie, if the waterfalls were in your backyard we would've never left! Thank you and we'll likely see you next year!

While we were researching VRBO for a 50th anniversary celebration week, we kept coming back to the Baldwin House--and we are so glad we did! Beautiful furnishings, well-equipped kitchen, helpful owners, lots of activities for all ages. Others have used up all the descriptive adjectives--we agree wholeheartedly!

Wonderful family vacation house

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 11 had a wonderful time staying in the Baldwin House and you will not go wrong choosing it for your family. Eating inside with 12 people worked fine with the large table they have off the kitchen. We easily did 18 people eating outside on the lovely patio. We agree with all the good things said before but would like to add that the new kitchen is beautiful and well designed. It is also well stocked and they thoughtfully have condiments and oils available for use. Barrie and Jim are easy to work with and provided any help we needed. Having the town of Trumansburg nearby was a real plus, it certainly has developed since we knew it back in the 60’s. The Ithaca area has more than plenty to do, one week is not enough time to visit the wineries, parks, play on the lake, and tour museums and other towns. The state parks are as beautiful as we remembered and if you have a senior in the car with a NY license they waive the $7 parking fee.

We felt so welcomed and right at home at the Baldwin House !

  • 4 of 5
This was a wonderful home to entertain friends and family over the eventful Cornell graduation weekend. With many sleeping rooms , we could accommodate both friends and family with plenty of private spaces , nooks and crannies to spread out over the property. The chefs of the family loved the newly renovated kitchen , an absolutely inviting space for cooks to cook and entertain all in one area. Garden ears will love the grounds with all the whimsy. Art lovers will enjoy the interior surprises. Owners pride and love felt in every rooms personal expression .

Cayuga Lake is part of the Barge Canal System which means you can boat from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Ontario and all the way to Ithaca, Watkins Glen, Geneva, and more. Cayuga Lake is 42 miles long. The widest point is three-and-one-half miles. The deepest spot is 435 feet, so you better wear your life jacket!

Cayuga Lake is wonderful for all those who love wine, boating, fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, sunsets, moonbeams, and rainbows. Fishermen enjoy an over abundance of landlocked salmon, lake, brown, and rainbow trout, pickerel, pike, perch, bass, and smelt (in the spring).
