GORGEOUS VIEWS & 5 KING BEDS, 3 FULL BATHROOMS ON CAYUGA WINE TRAIL W/HOT TUB

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.

Mitch and I (KC) live nearby in Trumansburg. We owned and operated the Halsey House Bed & Breakfast 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

The location, the house and property itself was ideal for our next vacation rental house. We fell in love at first site and this may well become the house we will retire in years from now.

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.

COULDN'T ASK FOR A BETTER HOUSE

Couldn't ask for a better house
  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with a bunch of friends and our families and had a wonderful time. The house is better well put together and seemed to have everything we needed (which made it really easy to pack!). Also, awesome wildlife viewing. The field is filled with animals that visit the back yard. The only downside was that we spent all our time on the property and not enough time in Ithaca!

GREAT FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We spent wonderful week with our family of 10 at Good Vibrations. This is the best vacation house we have ever stayed in. The house is beautifully decorated and very welcoming. The kitchen was equipped with all new appliances and stocked well which made the cooks in our family very happy.We loved gathering all ten of us in the dining room to eat dinner.There was plenty of things to do at the house. Our family enjoyed the pool table and the hot tub and had a great time sitting around the fire pit reminiscing. Good Vibrations is located in a peaceful setting within 15-20 minutes of the Winery Trail, hiking trails, beautiful waterfalls,and Ithaca _ there was something to do for everybody! KC was helpful in answering questions prior to our arrival, and we had the pleasure of meeting Mitch who met us the day we arrived. It truly was a special vacation! I would highly recommend Good Vibrations!

GREAT VIBRATIONS WAS FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Good Vibrations for five nights and enjoyed every minute. We were a bit apprehensive about the bathrooms since there weren't any pictures of them online, but no worries, they were updated and as gorgeous as the rest of the home. The home exudes quality, and the decor is whimsical yet classy. Mitch and KC get you off to a great start with the necessities (paper towels, toilet paper, hand soap...even a generous supply of wood for the fire pit - we had two evening fires and I don't think we used half of the wood they supplied) the kitchen has pretty much everything you could want. There were so many thoughtful touches - an umbrella in the garage, lighters for the fire, hairdryers in the bathrooms...
We enjoyed the pool table in the downstairs living area, and my husband especially liked the little nook downstairs for reading.
The hot tub was wonderful, and the 10 Adirondak chairs around the fire pit were great. We were mesmerized by the show the fireflies put on one night - it looked like a fireworks display in the woods. Lots of bunnies, deer, butterflies -
We brought bocce ball, croquet and corn hole boards and had plenty of outdoor space to use them all, at the same time if we wanted to. Several in our group brought their bicycles and took rides on the country roads - there are not really any bike paths around, but they still enjoyed their rides.
If you're into waterfalls, this is the place to be - they're everywhere. Watkins Glen (about 30 minutes away) has a fun one that you can climb up to and walk behind. The Taughannock Falls are within biking distance from Great Vibrations.
Downtown Ithaca is only 15 minutes away and there are a lot of fun shops to check out and plenty of restaurants. And of course wineries abound.
We would recommend this property to anyone, and would not hesitate to rent any of Classic Country Vacation Homes properties as well. Mitch and KC were very helpful, they gave us all the information we needed before we came - answered all of our questions, met us at the house when we arrived to explain how everything worked and even mailed us medicine that we accidentally left at the house when we left. They are awesome!!!

WEDDING WEEK - MOTHER-OF-THE GROOM

  • 5 of 5
I didn't think Good Vibrations could be as great as the pictures, but I was totally wrong! It was everything & more. My husband & I thought we would rent a house for my son's wedding in Oct. 2013 for the groomsmen/significants, us & grandmom, as well as have a gathering space for family/friends to stop by for a visit & have a glass of wine. There was plenty of space for all ages - two living areas were great. I have to mention the large dining room table for 10 (with room to squeeze more) - we started our days there and that's where we ended our days. Many stories were shared sitting around that table - some with tears but most stories we laughed so hard we couldn't stop. Great family time spent with three generations! Pool table and hot tub were great amenities. We gathered around the fire pit in the evening sampling our Finger Lake wines. Loved the peace and quiet sitting in the huge backyard. The king master bedroom upstairs was my retreat, and I can't say enough about the beds!! Kitchen very well stocked with seasonings, appliances, gadgets, etc. Our wedding week was amazing! Thank you for sharing this home. The owners were wonderful to work with and answered the many questions we had before our arrival. House is very close to the Cayuga wine trail, Taughanock State Park and Ithaca for shops and food. Would definitely consider coming back to Good Vibrations!

A perfect home for a weekend in the Finger Lakes! Hosted a girls getaway weekend and this home was absolutely the best choice. Spacious, quiet, modern decor with great attention to detail in every corner! Very nearby to the Cayuga wine trail, as well as a quick drive to Ithaca for shops, food and entertainment. Welcoming owners, clear directions and great space!

REALITY BREAK FROM LIFE

  • 5 of 5
This house was very well stocked with the comforts of home and centrally located to some great wineries. A great time was had by both young and old with plenty of space to relax on your own or chat and laugh with others. We would definitely return to this house to unwind again.

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.
