Just want to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin in Spencer, NY. You were right when you said that it would have everything we needed to be comfortable. We were very impressed with how well organized everything was and appreciated the labels on the drawers and cabinets. The handmade quilts added to the charm of the interior. It was indeed very comfortable.--Besides all that, my grandkids loved skipping rocks across the pond, and the view from the cabin was great!
My family and I just got back from a 3 night stay and had a wonderful time. The cabin is stocked with anything you might need. The cabin is 30 minutes from Watkins Glen and 20 minutes to Ithaca for day trips. My sons fished in the pond, played football in the yard and we all played board games (which are supplied). Everything inside and outside the cabin is labeled so you can easily find what you're looking for. We had great fires by the pond and the darts were an added bonus.
We had a fantastic time getting away from it all at this peaceful property. The property is chock full of games, activities, and all the necessities you may need for a stay. It is also close enough to all the outings in the area. So you can go to Ithaca and have a look around, you can go to the lovely parks to hike and look for the waterfalls. But when you return, it is back to peace and tranquility. Lots of nice touches all around the property that leaves you wanting for nothing. If you do need something it's down road in Spencer. The only minor gripe we can say we have is the ability to hear the road noise from the property. However, you can't even see the roadway from the property. All you see are farms and rolling hills in the distance. So thank you for maintaining a lovely property and for allowing other people to see your great work. It would certainly be a place we would return to in the future.
This home is well maintained, has a policy of being stocked ( replace what you use), and is in a great location. Spenser, New York is a very small town and totally unpretentious. There is a 25 minute drive north to Ithaca. The house offers visitors nice local walks, an eating area beside the pond, and the sense of being in a home that was carefully put together.
I was immediately totally comfortable at this home. It was easy to find everything and the beds were so comfortable that I slept better than at my own home every night. Having the washer dryer was a huge asset. The cabin is close to the road but isolated from it by a little hill, which also creates a wonderful view. I am very thankful for our stay there and would do it again!
I really don't want to write a glowing review because I don't want to share this little piece of Heaven! It was absolutely perfect! You will need nothing. Sam has thought of everything. Just go and enjoy, but don't take my week!
This was just a delightful place to stay. I have stayed at several VRBO properties in the past and this one is tops! The house has everything you could ever think of. It is designed for people of all ages. Our dog loved the pond and the area hiking in the gorges. The house was fully stocked and well labeled so any questions you had were immediately answered. Sam was very courteous and easy to deal with. Great place to sit outside, relax and enjoy all the nature around you. We have already discussed coming back in the fall.
