About Betsy or Alan Del Mauro

My husband Alan and I grew up in a small town in NJ, only 30 minutes from NYC, we both knew we wanted to experience country living and found these beautiful views of the rolling hills to be breathtaking and very relaxing. We have lived in Candor for about 33 years now and are very happy here. I am a retired teacher and my husband is retired from the wholesale florist business.

Betsy or Alan Del Mauro purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Betsy or Alan Del Mauro chose New York

We built the log cabin vacation rental on our 300 acre property because it is secluded in a beautiful country area where guests can relax and watch the whitetail deer and turkey that roam the fields- yet it is close enough to also be able to visit the nearby attractions. It's location really provides the best of both worlds- allowing guests to escape their busy lives and enjoy the peaceful environment while also offering exciting attractions to visit. We know you will enjoy the beauty of the property and the unique feeling of staying in a real log cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The log cabin is beautiful, my 3 sons were just so excited to be staying in a real log cabin and sleeping in the loft bedroom w/balcony was very special. The outdoor campfire area where we made smores was a big hit! Traveling into Ithaca to walk the beautiful waterfalls and gorges was very direct and convenient, the cabin contained all the amenities we needed to make our stay perfect. We will be back in the summer.

Team of us staying for a nearby spartan race. Owners were very easy and flexible and gracious to help and work with us. Definitely an open lodge noise factor to consider, country water smell but other than that a really great place to stay. We enjoyed it and would go back!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review, we are glad you found us "easy and flexible" and that we were able to accommodate all your special requests. So proud of your group of friends, it takes a certain type to be involved in the Spartan races - with all of your enthusiasm there was bound to be a lot of noisy encouragement from such a large team. We are happy you were able to enjoy the peace and "TRANQUILITY" of the beautiful log cabin. Thanks again, Betsy & Alan

This was the perfect place for a quiet weekend. rented the cabin for New Year's weekend with my girlfriend and her five-year-old son. More than enough space all the amenities huge property if you're looking for quiet this is definitely the place to go. Can't wait to go back in the spring! Couldn't ask for a nicer house at a reasonable price the owners made you feel like the house was yours cute little town not too far was more space than what we needed but perfect with a five-year-old to not feel cramped highly recommended

Superb log cabin rental for great long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Terrific log cabin very well stocked and equipped with plenty of amenities. Very clean, nice view, and quiet. It was a great place for a very nice, fun, long weekend with good family and friends. Owners couldn't be more pleasant and can't do enough to make your stay more enjoyable--not to mention, they are very nice people! I would highly recommend this location and hope to return to it myself!

Surprise Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend rented this cabin as a surprise for my birthday, and what a PERFECT surprise it was. The cabin is exactly as it's shown. Beautifully kept, and full of charm. Betsy*(the owner) was very pleasant to deal with, and made the arrangements very easy. I'd recommend this cabin to anyone who wants to stay in the Ithaca NY area. Easy access to the surrounding towns, but yet remote enough to keep you hidden off in the woods. Planning to return next year!

We are happy you spent your birthday surprise at the cabin and found it to be "beautifully kept and an easy access to Ithaca and surrounding towns." Looking forward to your return stay, thanks, Betsy & Alan.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location with views of woods, cornfield, open pastures and the frequent visits from Canada Geese, wild turkeys, deer including a visit from fawn and its mom. I enjoyed coffee on the front porch every morning. The owners were very helpful and immediately responsive-they live just down the road. The weather was great! So nice and cool every night and quite moderate in the daytime. Cabin beautifully and comfortably furnished and well equipped. Very comfortable bed!! We enjoyed exploring the area it's such beautiful countryside and had great breakfast at the FireHouse in Candor, lots of fun looking in the shops in Owego. Perfect vacation!
