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.

Amazing log cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this log cabin it was very peaceful and relaxing. When we arrived the log cabin looked just like the pictures shown on this website. We couldn't have asked for a better experience or location. We hauled our motorcycle in an enclosed trailer to explore the Finger Lake region and this log cabin was centrally located to several areas. There was lots of room to park and the roads were blacktop to travel on.

We definitely want to stay at this cabin the next time we go back!

Betsy was perfect to work with and provided us with information in the area!

Thank you so much for renting this log cabin! It's perfect!

We just spent Cornell graduation weekend at the cabin. Betsey and Alan were great, the house spotless, the views and wildlife watching memorable and all so convenient to Ithaca - it was a perfect family and friend retreat. We would love to return!

Great cabin, very unique, great hosts

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time at the cabin. We arrived to find the cabin very clean and ready for our stay. Betsey came down to greet us and go over any questions that we had.

In the morning Alan stopped by to place firewood in the fire pit (it rained the first night) that he had been drying in his garage. Everything was exactly as described, the kitchen is well equipped and there is a BBQ grill right out on the porch which we used each night.

My family loved being able to enjoy the peace and quiet and disconnect from the world.

Candor is in very close proximity to Ithaca so hiking the gorges and getting into town is a quick 25-30 minute drive. Also nearby is Owego which has a quaint small town feel with little shops and restaurants off of main street.

We stayed at the cabin and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. Centrally located for day trips to Ihaca, Trumansburg, Watkins Glen, Corinth, and Binghampton, but quiet and peaceful with all the comforts of home in the cabin. Spencer and Candor just a short drive for groceries or a bite to eat. Betsy and Alan were very gracious hosts, and we love antiquing and found a weekly antique Auction each Friday just a short drive in Candor. Very pleasant experience and looking forward to coming back.

Can't beat this place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Log Cabin for a yearly trip we make to the area. We found the cabin to be just right. One of the best parts of this place is the cool and breezy front porch ...perfect for sitting and relaxing. It is big enough for quite a few people and also a good place to watch the critters... of which there are many. The inside of the cabin is very nice. It has all you need with a wonderful kitchen, well stocked with cooking utensils. The house is very comfortable and super nice for it is very quiet at night. All in all, you can't lose renting here...outstanding location, outstanding cabin and outstanding landlords make this rental perfect.
