When I came to the finger lakes I knew I was home. As a lover of the country there is no more beautiful scenery than Cayuga Lake and its rolling hills and waterhfalls. As a lover of cities, Ithaca is a unique blend of college town, agricultural center and state of the art high tech industry. There are restaurants representing cuisine from all over the globe, world renowned museums and infinite things to do and see. As a nurse and farmer and now VRBO member I love helping people get the most from their well earned vacations. That is why we put so much thought into designing The Grey Barn as a home away from home for travelers from all over the world. Come experience The Finger Lakes with us!

P.S. If you dont hear from me right away I am at work and will respond in the evening!

The motto for Ithaca is ' Ithaca is gorges' This play on words reflects both the phenomenal gorges no less than 6 of them within 15 miles and most within 7 miles. These fantastic gorges can be easily accessed to hike and some have swimming holes. Gorgeous is Cayuga Lake and surrounding area. The lake beckons you to swim, fish, boat or just watch its many moods. At The Grey Barn you will be on the Wine Trail, near the Cornell Plantations and Ornithology Lab.

If you are a biker you are in one of the top Mountain biking areas in NY and road biking can't be better.

You will be tempted by multiple restaurants with diverse cuisines nearby. However you may prefer to pick up local foods and cook them at home in the full large kitchen back at The Grey Barn.

If you are interested in vegetable farming we have an organic vegetable farm 4 miles down the road that we would be happy to show you and offer fresh produce in season.

However you spend your time you will want to return to see the area in a different season and light and we will welcome you back!
