When I came to the finger lakes I knew I was home. As a lover of the country there is no more beautiful scenery than Cayuga Lake and its rolling hills and waterhfalls. As a lover of cities, Ithaca is a unique blend of college town, agricultural center and state of the art high tech industry. There are restaurants representing cuisine from all over the globe, world renowned museums and infinite things to do and see. As a nurse and farmer and now VRBO member I love helping people get the most from their well earned vacations. That is why we put so much thought into designing The Grey Barn as a home away from home for travelers from all over the world. Come experience The Finger Lakes with us!
