What a wonderful home you have. We had such a good and relaxing visit with our friends and relatives. We all felt so at home and comfortable even the little ones slept well! You are very fortunate to have such a beautiful hide-away to escape to from both the city and all of your travels.
Thank you so much again and we will definitely recommend your home as well as hope to come back to it at some point.
My family stayed here for my graduation weekend, and it was really wonderful. It's a 45 minute drive from Ithaca. It was really great to have place for everyone to stay together. The property was very clean and well-equipped, and the hot-tub to relax in after the busy days on campus was very welcome. The owner was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this home if you are travelling in the area.
We had such a great time on our trip, the house was absolutely great. The hot tub was the perfect end to our cold days and was just lovely under the stars. We did a lot of cooking and baking (with a couple supplies from the TOPS supermarket which was super close, and also Greenstar in Ithaca--worth the drive-- to get a couple things for some vegan cuisine); the fully equipped kitchen was a great plus since we were not able to bring all the supplies we needed. We watched a couple DVDs from your collection which were very enjoyable on the projector screen in the cozy living room. Scrabble and checkers also let us have a little board game fun which was great! My boyfriend's favorite part about the house was probably the heated floor tiles! Such a great touch for those chilly mornings. We loved your collection of brochures and information, which gave us a heads up to go to the Glen Mountain Market where my boyfriend got a tasty vegan sandwich for lunch one day. The town was great, we loved the openness of everything. Although the weather was a bit cold and the ground snowy we still did some site seeing (the Falls in downtown were beautiful!), and even went hiking on the trails at the Watkins Glen State Park. We definitely want to book a time for the summer to do some more adventuring and relaxing if able to, as the house was the perfect place for this.
Thank you and kind regards on letting us stay here!
Thank you for letting use use your beautiful house! We enjoyed waking up to the snow covered lawn and trees! What a beautiful view! The hot tub on the deck was amazing! What a great location for our Deck the Halls weekend. Having your neighbor, Rachel, cook for us was the perfect ending to our day out. The food was delicious--we recommend her to anyone!
Thanks so much!
Had a great retreat with the family, Katya was great to deal with, very responsive and very detail oriented. That was the first sign that I knew it was a good idea to pick this place. There are so many to pick from. Loved the cedar hot tub. Very unique, although not a lake side property, a gorgeous view from the hot tub, unique architecture and privacy more than made up for it. Also, very close to Watkins glen, which was definite worth visiting! Thanks again for a wonderful vacation.
My friends and I are from the city and we were going to Ithaca for a wedding so we wanted to make a weekend out of it. We chose this house because it looked spacious and clean, and it turned out to be a great decision for even more reasons! The owner of the house was very responsive and helpful. The house was well maintained, fully stocked with everything we needed, and very homey. We used the grill, the hot tub, and sat on the porch to star-gaze -- all things we couldn't readily do in the city. It was also very secluded and quiet. Overall, it was a big reason for a great weekend getaway! If I ever come back to the area, I'd definitely stay here again.
Our stay was during the week between Christmas and New Years. Everything listed about this stay was excellent. It was actually better than anticipated. It was clean and very well maintained. There were 8 of us in our group and the huge living room-dining room-kitchen was VERY accommodating. Thank you soooo much Katya for having the game Scategories, it was the one game my daughter was hoping someone would have and no one in our group brought and then I saw it with all the other games!!....what a nice surprise. The wrap around deck and the view from it was fantastic. Our favorite part was the hot-tub, there were 4 of us that got in and with the temp outside being around 17 degrees it was great!! Katya was very helpful in answering all our questions and I was impressed with how well and timely she was in conversing via email. I would highly recommend this stay and have already given out the information to a couple of our friends. I would love to come back for another stay.
