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!

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our boxer spent seven wonderful days at South View farm. The owner managed to keep the charm of the original farmhouse, while providing all the modern amenities to make our stay perfect. We are incorrigible sightseers, and there was so much to do within a half hour's drive. The beautiful botanic gardens of Cornell University, the many waterfalls and hiking trails in Ithaca, Greenwood Park, the antique trail in Owego. We did them all. The farmhouse was great. It had everything you could ask for, including peace and quiet. It was great sitting in one of the rocking chairs on the deck, watching the cows and seeing the sun set over the hills. It was a perfect place to relax and unwind, and a vacation where you could do as much as you'd want, or nothing at all. Thanks, Nancy for letting us share your little bit of paradise.

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

After spending 10+ hours skiing at Greek Peak, it was enjoyable to take a nice ride through the country to this house. We walked in and the lights and heat were on which was very welcoming. Lots of land makes for a great place to walk around and enjoy all the surrounding landscapes. We booked one day before our trip and Nancy was very willing to work with us, and even let us stay an hour than we were supposed to. Will definitely try and come back.

Nice country setting!

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed a thanksgiving visit. Kitchen was able to accommodate the making of the meal. House was clean. Snow covered hills provided entertainment for the kids. Would be worth a return visit in the summer.

My family had a great time at South View Farm. The home is comfortable and a great "home away from home". Nancy was very responsive and provided good service.

Lots to do in the area - state parks, close to Binghamton and Ithaca. Fishing at the reservoir was neat.

Would highly recommend this property and we are hoping to return in the future!

The hiking trails well marked and groomed; the views from the cabin are wonderful and peaceful. The peacefulness will lull you to sleep at night.
