Why Jeff and Katherine chose Ithaca
We use this lovely retreat as a health retreat center several times per year. In between, it is offered as a special vacation rental.
What makes this house unique
There is wonderful wildlife, it is very peaceful and tranquil. It feels as if you are secluded in the country, but a 15 minute drive gets you downtown.
