The town of Spencer is small town America. No hassle traffic, just a blinking red light at the main intersection Rt 34 and Rt 96. Which is 2 miles north. A good place to relax and getaway from city life.

Only 17 miles to Ithaca. And only 20 miles to Watkins Glen.

No need to close window blinds, no one around to look in. Great view of rolling hills. Has everything to be comforable . Just have to bring your own personal items .

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello, Sam--

Just want to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin in Spencer, NY. You were right when you said that it would have everything we needed to be comfortable. We were very impressed with how well organized everything was and appreciated the labels on the drawers and cabinets. The handmade quilts added to the charm of the interior. It was indeed very comfortable.--Besides all that, my grandkids loved skipping rocks across the pond, and the view from the cabin was great!



Best regards,

Mary

Loved the place, awesome location and features

  • 5 of 5
We reserved this cabin for two nights in August 2014. Right from guiding us with directions to the property to the time of vacating Sam was available by call. Anything and everything that could be potentially required was thought out and kept along with detailed directions on how to use them. We were also pleasantly surprised by the fire wood that was provided (neatly covered in tarp) and fresh tomatoes in the garden upfront.
Our kids wanted to spend and enjoy the cabin rather than the finger lakes area so that speaks volumes about the stuff Sam had for them from board games to badminton rackets etc... Just want to thank Sam for all his efforts in making sure we had a great stay. He obviously takes a lot of pride in owning and maintaining the place.

Very Cozy

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I rented this cottage for a few days during the winter, and it was gorgeous. From the property you have a nice scenic view of the valley and hills that its atop of. The inside of the cabin felt warm and cozy with all the intricate quilts on the walls and the white snow outside. It is an ample place to spend time away from the constraints of life.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and i rented the cabin for 3 weeks in order to be close to our son and his family, and to assist in the care of our grandson. All the reviews, as well as interactions with Sam, were helpful in selecting the cabin as the place for us, and we were not disappointed! Our grandson had his first experience sleeping away from home, and it was a good one. Our daughter and her boyfriend joined us for the weekend for a terrific mini family reunion. Spencer is a pleasant community where we found a delightful pond, park, cemetery with revolutionary war-era soldiers' graves, and essential services. The only shock was that the wonderful cell-phone service did not extend to anyone on the Sprint network -- we had to invest in a Verizon phone. We would happily stay in this clean and well-appointed cabin again, and we heartily recommend it to others.

Top Notch Inside and Out

  • 5 of 5
My husband, son, daughter in law and I ( along with their little doggie) just had a great weekend at this extremely well kept,comfortable and well supplied cabin. Set up on a small hill over the road, you feel like you're all by yourselves, with total privacy except for the friendly bullfrogs who serenaded us from the pond while we had an evening campfire. It was close enough to Ithaca to enjoy some restaurants and activities there and also to part of the Finger Lakes Trail, which we enjoyed a short hike on.
This was so much better than renting hotel rooms in Ithaca! I would gladly return and heartily recommend to others. - a small family, few friends or two couples.

Everything Perfect

  • 5 of 5
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.
Joan and Dennis from Philadelphia, PA.
