About Amy Newman

I moved to Ithaca 13 years ago and love it. There's so much to do nearby, and yet it's a very peaceful place. I graduated from Cornell in the 1980s and always wanted to move back here. I'm a senior lecturer at Cornell.

Amy Newman purchased this house in 2002

Why Amy Newman chose Ithaca

I fell in love with the house when I bought it. It's a solid, mission house but feels modern, especially with the backroom addition that faces the view. You can see the lake or Cornell from almost every room in the house.

Supreme for the Soul

  • 5 of 5

My family gathered for the celebration of my son's convocation from Cornell Law. Our stay was greatly enhanced with our decision to book this beautiful home - so close to town and the university, but so relaxing with the view and gorgeous deck! We had everything we needed - the home is immaculate and lovey with plenty of room to accommodate our party of 8. I hope to return to the area with all it has to offer, and this property will be the first I look at - I want a chance to take advantage of the tranquility and drink in the view once again!

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a week right after Christmas and completely enjoyed our stay. Even though it was cold weather, the home was warm and comfortable with the gas stove. The kitchen was terrific for our many meals we prepared together and having laundry facilities was really handy for the one week stay. The home was clean, well appointed with everything we needed and just lovely! We'll definitely stay here again. The Owner was super helpful and accessible. Loved it!

The one thing to consider if you or a guest has troubles with stairs, there are a lot of stairs to get to the various levels. My Mom, who is in her mid-70s, was a bit challenged.

Owner's Response: I'm glad to hear the house worked well for a weekly stay -- this was our first! Ithaca is surprisingly nice in the winter time. There's plenty to do in the house, around town, and at local wineries. Amy

Beautiful!

I planned a girls weekend at the finger lakes vineyards. This rental was beautiful overlooking the lake. Great view, very spacious, very clean (clean bedding and towels provided) amenities were wonderful, easy to communicate with the owner, close to vineyards and Ithaca downtown area. I would highly recommend staying here!!

Can't say enough good things!

  • 5 of 5

My best friends from college and I try to get back to Ithaca every few years to reunite and like to stay all together in a home when we visit. We booked this only based on reviews and pictures and were a little nervous. Upon arrival however, we were more than impressed! The house not only is absolutely beautiful, it's spotless!! The owners take great care to ensure it's clean and when traveling with children this is a must. I would highly recommend this house to anyone! The view is breathtaking, the house is gorgeous and the amenities were wonderful. Not only would I recommend this I would stay again in a heart beat. It's in close proximity to downtown Ithaca as well as IC, the photos although are accurate, don't do the property justice, it's even better in person. The owner left a manual/guide that was helpful and informative and overall it was a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks, JG! I'm glad to hear the house is spotless and will pass the feedback along to my housekeeper. Kids do have fun at the house with the ping pong, Wii, treehouse, and swings! Hope to see you back with your IC friends, Amy

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

My college friends and I recently got together for a reunion weekend in Ithaca, NY and stayed at this property. We can't find enough nice things to say about the house. The pictures truly do not do it justice. The view is beautiful, the house is filled with light, the rooms were very comfortable and the location is very convenient for getting around Ithaca. We loved sitting on the deck until the sun went down, enjoying the views of Cayuga lake and the beautiful scenery surrounding us. We will definitely be returning to this property in the future.

Owner's Response: Wow, thanks for the great feedback! I've had a lot of people stay for reunions, and I'm glad to hear it was even better than expected. Best, Amy
