A wonderful, wonderful place to stay! The pictures in the listing--nice as they are--don't do this place justice, as you'll see if you rent it.
From the outside, the cabin and environs are beautiful The grounds, elevated above the road, are green, and the pond is a lovely accompaniment.
Inside, the home is super clean, everything seems sparkling new, the furniture is very comfortable, and the omnipresent decorative quilts provide a lovely touch. The wrap-around windows offer a panoramic view of the farms, homes, and land in the distance. And Sam has everything--and I mean everything--you can think of helpfully labeled. (For example, I have never found it so easy to convert using the TV to watching a DVD.) Forget to bring something--not to worry. There's even a baby bottle on site! Need a flash light, there are at least 4. Roll of toilet paper run out? There are 8-10 extra rolls. You'd of course want a house key. Well, inside the house there are not one or two but three. There are towels a-plenty, too. Extra blankets, extra pillows. Any dish, pot, pan, utensil, spice, etc, etc, you might want are there. Among the spices we even serendipitously found crushed red pepper to sprinkle on the pizza we had brought in.
The cabin is 17 miles south of Ithaca, but it's an easy 29 minute ride to get there. Similarly, Watkins Glen and Elmira are each @ a half hour away.
The owner, Sam, is very responsible in answering questions and just plain being hospitable and accommodating.
There's absolutely nothing to worry about here and everything to enjoy.
