Overview

Ithaca Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful, bright, open-concept 6 bed, 4 bath Country Lodge w/14 acres IN ITHACA

Introducing Shangri-Lodge, our newest luxury vacation home in the Finger Lakes. The synopsis: a 3600 square foot home renovated in 2013-2014 featuring six bedrooms, four bathrooms, on a spacious 14+ acre property with gardens, lawns, fields, barns, a huge pond, many mature trees and a creek with it's own little waterfalls. Windows and skylights galore allow the home to be flooded with light and give you picturesque views out every window. Located in Ithaca, 6 minutes from downtown and close to both Cayuga and Seneca Lake Wine Trails.

The Details:

This delightful, spacious home began as a mid-century ranch with three bedrooms. In the 1980's an addition doubled the space by adding a vaulted great room, two more bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and a secluded master suite on the second floor. You can just picture the Rat Pack boys mixing drinks in the great room and lounging around on the sofas in front of the fireplace so large you could walk in to it!

Since purchasing the house in June of 2013, we have completely remodeled the kitchen into a huge, bright, beautiful space that marries modern technology and convenience with some charming farm-style details. With 19 feet of counter space plus a 12 foot island, you can accommodate many cooks and helpers. The commercial-style 48' cooktop has four burners and a very large griddle. The kitchen is also outfitted with Frigidaire Gallery series double ovens and their Professional series refrigerator and separate freezer (yes, lots of space!) and a Bosch SilencePlus dishwasher.

Also in our renovation work, two bathrooms which were outdated and had teeny tiny prefab shower stalls have been gutted, reconfigured and built with custom spacious tiled showers (and, of course, new vanities, toilets and fixtures as well). The open concept space allows you to see from the great room into the kitchen as well as the dining room and conversation area in the library. The lower level has a spacious family room with sectional couch, recliners, a game table, flat screen HDTV and an electric fireplace. It is a fantastic, bright space to watch movie or sports, play games or as a refuge for the kids to get away from the adults.

Five of the bedrooms are on the first floor, with one of them having an en suite bathroom. There are two hall bathrooms also on the first floor, one with a shower/tub combination and the other with a shower. This layout works very well for people with limited mobility or who prefer not to do stairs. The sixth bedroom with en suite bathroom is on the second floor.

Let's talk about the great outdoors. The property is over 14 acres, divided by a road. Surrounding the house are gardens, trees and lawn that give way to fields of corn and forests. On the house side of the street, a creek runs the border of the property and continues on to refresh the inviting pond on the other side of the street. The pond has a rope swing, a stationary dock with a ladder and a floating dock with a diving board. There is also a shelter near the pond to use as a picnic pavilion or just to get out of the sun and sit. We have included a hot tub in a private area right out the side of the house within view of the creek.

Great flow, easy living, light, space, the outdoors, all of these factors make Shangri-Lodge an amazing house for people to come together and enjoy each other's company.

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.

About KC Christopher

Mitch and I (KC) have spent years learning what travelers are looking for and how to pamper them while operating the Halsey House B&B in local Trumansburg for over a decade. We bring that knowledge to each vacation home we offer and you can rest assured our standards are at the highest level you will encounter in the Finger Lakes region and beyond.

KC Christopher purchased this chateau / country house in 2013

Why KC Christopher chose Ithaca

This estate offers the opportunity to live in the country while being in the city. It epitomizes what we look for and create in a vacation home - luxury, comfort, privacy, land, trees, an intimate setting with room to spread out and enjoy the simpler, finer things in life like downtime and spending time with people dear to you.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This is a rare gem, surrounded by nature's beauty and only minutes from downtown Ithaca but a world away from traffic, people and stress. A truly private oasis awaits you.

Great house for a three-generation family celebration

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at your lovely house this past weekend for a family celebration. It is well-furnished and equipped to handle a group of about 20 people for a party. The large living room and connected dining room worked great for meals and entertaining. This was one of the best-equipped kitchens I've found in a rental house and a pleasure to use. With the bedrooms on the sides of the house, the party can continue in the kitchen and living areas while not disturbing those who want to sleep. All guests enjoyed the pool table and hot tub downstairs.

A luxurious and beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home/property for a long weekend of wine tasting and relaxation. The location is fantastic - a short drive to Ithaca and all of the Cayuga Lake wineries. The house is extremely spacious and comfortable and the expansive grounds gave us lots to explore. My favorite part was the amazing kitchen... I didn't want to go home! We will definitely be back next year.

Fabulous Fall Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect property for our group of 8 adults and 3 children! We used the gourmet chef's kitchen for every single meal! It was perfectly stocked with everything we could have wanted. The house is extremely comfortable and the perfect floor plan for multiple families to spread out a little bit. The huge fireplace in the family room made it the perfect gathering space for us all to come together and play the provided board games. The property was well kept and the owners were incredibly friendly, attentive and accommodating to our requests. We hope to be back next fall!
