Overview

About the property

Trumansburg, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathroom House 10 Minutes From Ithaca (Sleeps 12)

Opened in the summer of 2013, Willow Creek has space, beauty, privacy and the ideal location next door to Taughannock State Park and Cayuga Lake as well as the Cayuga Wine Trail and only ten minutes from Ithaca. And now, the Black Diamond Trail is open from Trumansburg to Ithaca to bike, hike and cross-country ski through the beautiful countryside!

Sleeping twelve people in six bedrooms, furnished with either a queen or king bed and the luxurious Sealy Posturpedic Euro Pillow-Topped mattresses our guests rave about, this house boasts five bathrooms to pamper all of the guests. There are two huge master suites, each with a king sized bed, and sliding doors leading out to the upper deck or lower patio and back yard. Three bedrooms are located on the main level and three bedrooms are on the lower level. The main level is accessed by a few steps up onto the front porch. Note: we allow up to fourteen people in your group if some are children.

With so much space indoors, you won't know where to relax and enjoy the company of your fellow vacationers, whether they are family or friends. The expansive living room has views of the back yard, fire pit and woods, a wood burning fireplace and seating for ten. The lower family room has the same great views, seating for eight, a wood-burning fireplace and a 55' HDTV with BluRay player. Adjacent to this is the beautiful 8' pool table we have added for your enjoyment. You will also find a table and chairs just off of the family room for playing a friendly game of cards, board games or setting up your laptops. The huge kitchen can accommodate chefs and assistants at the same time.

Outside, you have three acres of lawn, gardens, seven person hot tub, barbecue with picnic tables and a fire pit with 12 Adirondack chairs to enjoy in private since the other houses on this lovely street are a distance away. And yet, you are moments from a state park, Cayuga Lake - the largest of the Finger Lakes, award winning wineries, restaurants, pubs, shopping and more. Walk to the end of the street and you are at Taughannock Falls State Park and the upper gorge rim's hiking trail.

This is an amazing property, and we are proud to add it to our Classic Country Vacation Homes as a choice for discerning travelers.

NOTE: NOT SUITABLE FOR WEDDINGS, RECEPTIONS, PARTIES OR GATHERINGS which include outside guests. Property is for the use and enjoyment of registered guests only, unless prior approval from owners is given.

About KC Christopher & Mitch Clarke

Mitch and I (KC) have spent years learning what travelers are looking for and how to pamper them while operating the Halsey House B&B in local Trumansburg for over a decade. We bring that knowledge to each vacation home we offer and you can rest assured our standards are at the highest level you will encounter in the Finger Lakes region and beyond.

KC Christopher & Mitch Clarke purchased this house in 2013

Why KC Christopher & Mitch Clarke chose Cayuga Lake

Willow Creek is ideally situated in the hub of the Finger Lakes. You experience country beauty and peacefulness and you are literally just steps from some of the most magnificent features this area has to offer. The house itself offers space, luxury, serenity and just a great happy feeling the minute you drive up. Come see Willow Creek, you will understand.

What makes this house unique

With six bedrooms, five bathrooms and 4500 square feet of space, this large, roomy home on a quiet beautiful setting is close to parks, lakes, wineries, Ithaca, Trumansburg, Taughannock Falls State Park and more. We have added an eight foot pool table just off the family room! Outside, this house offers an outdoor seven person hot tub, a fire pit with twelve Adirondack chairs, a hybrid barbecue and lots of seating at the two octagon picnic tables.

Wine Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our group of twelve recently stayed at Willow Creek and had a wonderful time. The house was perfect for our needs and very close to restaurants, shops and the Cayuga wine trail. We wished we had more than the weekend to explore!

Perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

KC's beautiful home was ideal for our weekend in Ithaca. Our group was 6 couples in town for a wedding; the house was plenty big for the whole group!

Although we weren't able to meet, KC was a pleasure to work with. Barb was also extremely helpful in welcoming us to the house.

I would definitely recommend this house!

Wonderful Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic weekend in this house! Family members from NC and NY converged here to attend a wedding in the area. The weather was spectacular and the house was great! With 6 bathrooms, there was no problem with all of us getting ready for the wedding. We took full advantage of the fire pit, the hot tub, the pool table and all the area has to offer (Watkins Glen State Park is a MUST!) Mitch and KC were wonderful to work with. We all agreed that we'd love to come back. And when you can get that many of my family members to agree, that's saying something! Do yourself a favor - stop thinking about it and rent this house!

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

From the initial conversation to our departure KC and Mitch were a pleasure to deal with. They were attentive and timely in all communication. The property is as described in a beautiful setting. Our trip was an Ithaca College reunion (36/37 years). We intended to go out in the evening, though changed our minds and cooked and ate in. The home was fully equipped to accommodate 6 couples. It was definitely the right decision. I highly recommend this property.

Fantastic! What is described and more!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 10 ladies thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Willow Creek. The photos are accurate and it is as beautiful in person as it looks online! The kitchen is actually better in person, as it has more space than we thought based on photos, as well as a handy breakfast bar that is not easily seen as pictured. The supplies were terrific; including a variety of spices, staples, kitchen tools and lovely dishes as well. Couldn't have wanted more! The entire house was exceptionally clean as well--amazingly so. The seating areas are so very spacious and more than we needed. We enjoyed the fireplace upstairs and it was so nice to be able to relax by a fire. Beds and pillows were very comfy! The view from the windows out over the wooded backyard was so welcoming and beautiful. It was a relaxing backdrop from inside as well as while relaxing on the deck or patio. The front of the house faces woods as well. It is a serene location, and a close walk to the nearby trail that runs by the gorge and to Cayuga Lake. Also very close to Ithaca; just 10 minutes up the road. We enjoyed the fire pit in the backyard, as well as the hot tub. Would rent this home again in a minute!!!! Thanks KC and Mitch!!!

Outdoor beauty and activities abound in the Finger Lakes, with over 150 waterfalls to view, hiking and biking trails everywhere and pristine lakes to spend time on and in. Bike along the scenic byway of Cayuga Lake. Cross-country ski in a national forest, through state parks and across farm fields while enjoying magnificent views. Visit organic farms to pick your own fruits and vegetables or come to the local farmer's markets where you can purchase from a plethora of items including meats raised on humane, free-range farms. These markets even have stands which prepare food to enjoy onsite while you shop.

The Cayuga Lake Wine Trail is located less than five minutes from Willow Creek, and within less than one hour you can be at over 100 other Finger Lakes wineries, including those on the Seneca Wine and Keuka Wine Trails. Cars and drivers are available for hire to take you on a wine tour, or you can join an organized tour by van, trolley or boat for an amazing and unique wine tasting experience.

Ithaca, 10 minutes from the house, has many wonderful restaurants and dining options, as well as shopping, theaters, art galleries and museums. It is also home to Cornell University and Ithaca College. Higher learning centers make for a diverse, culturally rich environment in Ithaca.
