Cosy Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We used this as a home base for a girls' ski weekend, and it was perfect! Super beautiful to sit on the porch, fully-equipped kitchen, and plenty of beds. Having the two full bathrooms was also a plus. The decor was really cute and unique. Loved all the roosters!

Great old farmhouse in beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We needed a place to stay while visiting family in Ithaca. The only two things of note are the steep stairs to the second floor and as others have pointed out, there were cobwebs.

Owner's Response: I don't like the steep steps either. Luckily we have a bathroom and twin beds on the first floor. And I mind the flies more than the cobwebs! Nancy South View Farm

Peaceful country vacation

  • 4 of 5

Surrounded by lovely forests and open hay fields and the view from the

Deck was great. The house is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans etc.

The wifi worked very well and we did not miss tv at all. Would be nice to have a HDMI port on one T.V. Could be a bit cleaner (many spider webs and many bugs in light fixtures,etc. But very well equipped in anything you might want or need. Many activities and events in the area. Great farmers market in Ithaca. Many water falls to see.

We really enjoyed our time at this country home.

Beautiful house and land

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house, with everything you need for the kitchen, bath and bed, with really reasonable and kind owners and caretakers, on wonderful rolling pasture and wooded land.

Great covered porch with a deck for star-viewing.

Beautiful and peaceful!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best vacation visiting family back home ever! Our trips home to visit family can be stressful with all the running around but the relaxing atmosphere of Southview farm made our trip home relaxing and wonderful! I absolutely loved having my morning coffee on the wrap around porch and we really enjoyed watching our kids detatch from their electronic devices most of the trip to run around outside playing football and frisbee or to play the many board games provided at the kitchen table. It was a blessing to see them all get along for a change! Thank you Nancy for a wonderful vacation full of family memories!
