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.

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!

Clean, Comfortable, and Secluded Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was a perfect choice for six college friends to celebrate 30+ years of friendship. We arrived Friday evening to find the cabin already cooled for our summer weekend getaway. Every room was clean, nicely furnished, and very cozy. The sleeping options are perfect for any combination of family and friends, and having two bathrooms is a real plus. We were centrally located to many attractions in the Finger Lakes region, and found Betsy's suggestions for hiking, wineries, shopping, and restaurants to be very helpful. This is a fantastic cabin to call "home" for a short weekend, or an extended stay.

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!

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.
