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!

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!

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.
