Why Barrie French chose Trumansburg

I moved to Trumansburg as a very young child in 1969.

After moving about for a while between 1980-1993 I decided I wanted to be back in the Ithaca/Trumansburg or surrounding area. I was searching for a home to purchase but wasn't sure in what area. In 1998 I went to visit my mom as I often did, and noticed that The Baldwin's Family House, 2 houses down from the house that I grew up in was for sale. I never was in The Baldwin's home but I always loved how big it was, and the lawn and gardens always looked so perfect! I called my realtor and asked if I could look at the house on 46 Elm st. ASAP. After 2 trips through the entire house and land, I knew this was the house for me, Despite the plaster peeling and falling off every single room in the house. I had always had a sense of design and a way of creating not so nice houses or apartments that I had rented, into very welcoming, comfortable, classy, and of course, always clean homes. After 12 years of renovating the house, 'The Baldwin House' I decided to offer my home to larger groups of people that would be coming to this area for happy occasions such as, vacationing, weddings, College alumni, Cornell and Ithaca College Graduations, and family reunions.

Welcome To The Baldwin House!

We loved our stay at the Baldwin House. There were 8 of us including 4 teenagers. The house is much more beautiful than the pictures and everyone had a very comfortable and lovely place to sleep. The kitchen is fully equipped and has anything you could possibly want. The house has that perfect combination of old world charm and modern updates. We would definitely come back when in Ithaca.

Beautiful Finger Lakes Home with Swimming Pool. Sleeps 14
average rating of 4.56 based on 30 reviews

Great place for a large family holiday!!

  • 4 of 5

Our family, including 11 adults and an infant, spent a week here. The house is in a great location, close to lots of things to do and we really enjoyed Trumansburg. There was plenty of sleeping/living space for all of us and we really enjoyed the large yard and the well kept pool. There were a couple of problems while we were there but the hosts were quick to do all they could to fix things.

Not quite what is advertised.

  • 3 of 5

Property is located perfectly. Lovely area and town. Ground have not been maintained well and bushes threaten to over take pool. Heat in pool would have been a nice option. Water was freezing, even in August. Piano that was advertised was nowhere to be found (sad since we had 2 people ready to entertain). Lack of hot water (tank needs repair?) and propane (empty tank resulted in half cooked meat) show a lack of care.

Even the tiki torches around the patio needed filled. We will definately revisit the area but not pay this much for a place to stay that needs help.

Spacious & well appointed home great accomodated family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Home location was excellent to walk into town to browse shops, ride our bikes to grab ice cream or drive a few minutes to falls! We really enjoyed the outdoor space from the pool, the front porch & the beautiful wooded lot. The beautiful kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils and allowed us to all dine at the spacious table. Owners were very responsive and timely with communication prior to and during our trip addressing any questions or needs that we had. We enjoyed our visit to Trumansburg!

Enjoyable week, great location, spacious home & yard, but lacked routine maintenance.

  • 3 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay. Trumansburg was lovely. Farmer's mkt., State Park, sailed on Cayuga Lake, visited museums, biked the village, quiet & peaceful. The house itself was artfully decorated & fully furnished with plenty of room for our family of 10 to spread out. We enjoyed cooking, dining on patio, swimming in very clean pool. Unfortunately the house had not been opened and aired out prior to our arrival and was extremely musty whenever closed, requiring many window fans, candles and sprays. We were thankful for the many roof windows to help circulate air. Not all listed ammenities were up to par, but we were able to work around them. The owner was available when needed for assistance.

Cayuga Lake is part of the Barge Canal System which means you can boat from the Atlantic Ocean to Lake Ontario and all the way to Ithaca, Watkins Glen, Geneva, and more. Cayuga Lake is 42 miles long. The widest point is three-and-one-half miles. The deepest spot is 435 feet, so you better wear your life jacket!

Cayuga Lake is wonderful for all those who love wine, boating, fishing, water skiing, jet skiing, sunsets, moonbeams, and rainbows. Fishermen enjoy an over abundance of landlocked salmon, lake, brown, and rainbow trout, pickerel, pike, perch, bass, and smelt (in the spring).
