Great cabin- very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The cabin was great with all the perfect little touches. It was like staying at a friend's home with all the comforts of home. Owner has great attention to detail, down to a toothbrush holder ( you don't think about needing this, but it sure is nice to have!) and spices etc provided. The cabin has great hot water which is always a plus! The owners were very nice and easy to work with even when our plans changed a little. Loved sitting out on the deck with coffee in the morning and watching the deer in the field. It was a great relaxing stay! Thank you.

This was an amazing property! Nestled in a country setting with frogs, deer and turkeys,it was relaxing and was a restful place. The cabin itself was perfect for 6 adults and a toddler. It was clean and well kept and had everything we needed to cook and live for 5 days. It was an easy 30 minute drive from Ithaca where we were attending Cornell University's Graduation events!

Everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

The Log Cabin is a beautiful setting. The kitchen is beautiful and open to the living area. There's a large dining table that seats 8 for meals. The bedrooms were as pictured. The place was very clean and well kept.

We rented both of their properties for a family reunion - 85th birthday weekend. I live locally but wanted a place that could hold all the guests coming in to town. The combination of the Log cabin and the Country Home together was perfect!

The location is very peaceful and quiet. Many in our group took hikes both in the day and at night, wandering the woods and enjoying the local scenery.

Working with Betsy and Alan was simple and enjoyable. From the booking to when we stayed, Betsy answered all the questions. They are also close by and quickly can answer or stop if there is a issue.

While we had a planned reunion, several of the family drove to Ithaca on different days to enjoy the shopping, farmer's market and hike. Ithaca is an easy drive away (25 minutes).

My family is already thinking about returning to the Log Cabin

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 Candor

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.
