There are also 2 great playgrounds at the Belle Sherman School just 2 blocks away. The property is also near the busline, for guests who don't have a car and want to venture out further than the downtown area. Ithaca College is a 5 minute drive from the house.

Downstairs is the kitchen with all appliances, silverware, pots & pans, etc for guest's use. Off the kitchen is the dining room, livingroom and a screened-in porch.

There is a gigantic backyard, fantastic for entertaining and a dog's dream come true! It's entirely fenced in, perfect for pets and children. All are welcome!

No extra charge for pets or large groups.

Amenities include: Cable TV, High Speed internet/Wifi, Off Street parking (fits 3-4 cars comfortably, but possible to have more if 2nd row is formed), Ceiling Fans, A/C in 2 of the bedrooms and a portable A/C for 3rd bedroom or any other desired room in the house, thermostat for heat control, Beautiful hardwood floors and sunlit rooms throughout!

Please note: The photos do not do this house justice. The rooms are more spacious and lighter than reflected in the pics. Also, I don't yet have pics of the half bath. More & better photos to come!

A Wonderful Thanksgiving!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second Thanksgiving in this fun house! We love having the room to gather, the space to cook, the large fenced in yard for our dog. The house is also in the perfect location for Cornell activities, restaurants and shopping. I would absolutely recommend this house!!

Great location and plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

Reasonably priced with a great location. This modest house had plenty of room for our family of four, a well equipped kitchen and was minutes away from the Cornell campus and downtown Ithaca. The only downer was all the animal hair on the furniture and slip covers.

exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a few days and needed a comfortable place to stay with our dogs. This was a perfect house for our needs, exactly across the street from the six mile creek trail.

Practical and convenient

  • 4 of 5

On the weekend our son was married in Ithaca we rented the property so family members would have a convenient place to kick back. There was nothing fancy here, but the basics were more than adequate. Large bedrooms with lots of sleeping options, a screened porch, a large yard and a dog door for the pooch. It was convenient to downtown Ithaca, a little noisy in the front of the house, but it was easy to forget how close to town you were with the large backyard and the old charm.
