Overview

Ithaca House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 10

Good Vibrations offers amazing views in a private and peaceful setting with a newly remodeled interior featuring five king-sized bedded bedrooms and three full bathrooms. No other vacation home along the Cayuga Wine Trail can accommodate five couples in comfort and privacy like this. Amenities include a 7 person hot tub, pool table, 2 fireplaces, WIFI, outdoor patio with gas barbecue, fire pit and picnic table. PLEASE NOTE: NOT SUITABLE FOR WEDDINGS OR RECEPTIONS.

From the moment you follow the long driveway along the beautifully manicured lawns and gardens, you will feel the serenity come over you.

The main level features huge picture windows offering views from every room, looking out at Cayuga Lake and the hills beyond or the lovely gardens surrounding the home. The public areas flow from the retro-inspired living room with fireplace to the dining room and kitchen. Down the hall you will find a full bathroom, a bedroom with a bow window and king sized bed and the master bedroom suite with it's own picture window and full master bathroom. All bedrooms feature new Sealy Posturepedic Plush Euro-Pillowtop mattresses.

Back in the main area, take the open staircase to the lower level and again, picture windows greet you with the magnificent view. The game room features a pool table, big screen TV, bar area and a second fireplace. The door will lead you to the brick patio, seven-person hot tub, barbecue and picnic table. Four acres of lawn and gardens give you ample space for lounging or playing games on the grass. There are three more bedrooms and a full bathroom on this level as well as an area for playing games or poker.

We have designed and decorated Good Vibrations to take advantage of the house's 1973 architecture with a fun, retro feel without any of the tacky accouterments that era was known for. Of course there is WIFI, flat screen TV's, a Dvd player and groovy furniture. Whether or not you bring your polyester leisure suit and watch Saturday Night Fever is up to you!

NOTE: Not suitable for weddings, receptions, parties or gatherings which include outside guests. Property is for the use and enjoyment of registered guests only, unless prior approval from owners is given.

About KC Christopher & Mitch Clarke

Mitch and I (KC) live nearby in Ithaca, NY. We designed, created, owned and operated the Halsey House Bed & Breakfast in Trumansburg for ten years and love sharing our beautiful area with visitors from around the world. We have found that our years in customer service with the b&b have helped us design and furnish our vacation rentals in such a way that exceeds our customer's expectations and elevates the overall experience of renting a vacation home.

KC Christopher & Mitch Clarke purchased this house in 2012

Why KC Christopher & Mitch Clarke chose Ithaca

The location, the house and property itself was ideal for our next vacation rental house. We fell in love at first site, as we walked in the door and look directly out the picture windows to this amazing view. It is captivating! This may well become the house we will retire in many years from now.

What makes this house unique

It has it all! Privacy, views, unmatched comfort, location along the Cayuga Wine Trail, very near state parks, waterfalls, Trumansburg, Ithaca, restaurants, theaters, golf, fishing, the list can go on and on.

You can spend all of your time at Good Vibrations reconnecting with family and friends, or venture out and enjoy the amazing Finger Lakes with all this area has to offer.

Girl's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend....This was our 4th annual girls weekend and this has been the best accommodations we have stayed at. The ladies could not stop raving about the beauty of the home and the views were to die for. A major perk for us was having the hot tub on location and a fire pit.

We can't thank KC and Mitch for their wonderful and courtesy service. I would recommend Good Vibrations property to everyone especially large groups.

Our group has already agreed we will be booking with them again for next years get away.

Winter Couples Trip

  • 5 of 5

There are five couples and we take annual winter trip. We were looking to go someplace different this year - we usually head up to Lake George area. Decided to go to the Ithaca area this year to snow shoe, visit a winery of two and hang out and enjoy the countryside. Good Vibrations is perfectly located for all of the above and to drop into Ithaca. There is a rail trail right next store which was perfect for snow shoeing; wineries are just up the road. We went into Trumansburg for dinner - great little town. House meet all our needs and than some - pool table was a plus and a hit; as was the hot tub.

Beautiful views from the top of the ridge where the house is located. Plan to come back.

BEST WEEKEND EVER

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house (along with 10 of my closest friends) to celebrate my 30th birthday in October. I cannot recommend this house enough -- it was absolutely perfect. Mitch was so kind in helping us get settled (and when we were running a tad late in checking out). In between our outings, we loved to come back to the house and relax in the hot tub, or laze about in the spacious rooms. We spent every night huddled around the firepit, laughing and enjoying the breath-taking views. It's set back far enough for plenty of privacy, but still close to everything we needed (food, booze, etc.). I hope to make our visit to Good Vibrations an annual affair! LOVE, LOVE, LOVED IT!

Beyond beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely recommend this place! The views from the house are beyond beautiful. So nice being in the quiet country like location yet still less than 20 mins from grocery stores and such. My group and I enjoyed our stay so much we were already booking a weekend getaway for next year!

NOT JUST GOOD VIBRATIONS, GREAT VIBRATIONS!!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived and met Mitch we were captivated. The views, the house, the amenities, the location were all fantastic. KC did a fantastic job of decorating.The pictures and description are spot on. Our group was there for a wedding at the falls but we managed to tour some wineries and spend a good deal of time just relaxing and watching the wildlife.Our stay was too short. We are already considering coming back with the motorcycles for a longer stay to be tourists. I would have liked to have seen the parrots! Trumansburg offered a great little grocery store 10 minutes away and there is a fantastic artist on the falls overlook road with beautiful sculptures. We truly felt safe, comfortable and welcomed. Mitch, turn up the water heater and water pressure in the showers and I won't be able to find any flaws. Oh and put some chairs on the front porch! You rock guys!!!

Owner's Response: Wow, thanks for the high praise! Mitch has already turned up the water heat and I will get to work on the perfect front porch chairs so you can hang out and watch bunny rabbits nibble the grass in the mornings. We'd love to have you return to enjoy the beautiful Finger Lakes and we may even get to show you our feathered flock of friends next time.

A perfect Labor Day weekend🍃🍂

  • 5 of 5

We totally recommend this place! The listing description is very accurate. The property is well maintain and clean. We spent a long Labor Day weekend here and we couldn't find a more beautiful place to end the Summer. The fire pit outside with comfy chairs, the hot tub, the view, clean air and the silence was perfect! We was 4 couples and 2 kids and the 5 bedrooms/king size beds, large living room and all the space around the house make us feel very comfortable. We was very impress with the quality of the mattress and pillows. The big fridge was a nice surprise and came in handy. The billiard table keep us entertain on rainy evenings. The kids enjoy the diversity of board games offered. The kitchen is packed with all the appliances that you need. Network connection it's very good. Around area you can enjoy fishing on Cayuga Lake, visit Taughannock Falls State Park, bicycling and hiking. We definitely come again here. We recommend this place to all our friends who want to escape from NY City ones in a while. This place offer relaxation and fun in every season.

Good Vibrations is 2 minutes from Taughannock Falls State Park, the highest single drop waterfall northeast of the Rocky Mountains. Cayuga lake's public beach and marina are also 2 minutes away and in 5 minutes you can be enjoying the Cayuga Wine Trail.

There are hiking trails and waterfalls throughout the Finger Lakes region, don't miss Robert H. Treman State Park (it's like being in a Tolkien novel) and the Watkins Glen State Park hikes. Buttermilk Falls is another of our local favorites, with an easy walk into the bottom of the falls, complete with swimming hole, as well as a challenging hike up the sides of the waterfalls.

This upstate region is home to acres of farmland which produce excellent local organic foods that have inspired chefs from around the world to open amazing restaurants specializing in seasonal, local ingredients and pastured-raised livestock. You can also purchase these ingredients yourself at our local Trumansburg and Ithaca Farmer's Markets and prepare your own delights at home in Good Vibrations.

Ithaca is home to Cornell University and Ithaca College. You can feel the pulse of energy brought by these establishments and the opportunities that radiate from them. Enjoy sporting events, performances and lectures, visit museums, wildlife sanctuaries and botanical gardens. Tour the beautiful grounds of the campuses and then people-watch while eating at a local pub. You will fall in love with our area.
