Overview

Ithaca House Rental Photos and Description

Vacations,Short-term rentals,Cornell & Ithaca College graduations,reunions,etc

Beautiful sunlit historic home perched on East Hill, a quiet upscale neighborhood bordering Collegetown, walking distance to Cornell, stores & restaurants, 6 mile Creek hiking trails/gorges & waterfall, and just a 15 minute stroll downtown. 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.

The house has 3 bedrooms with 4 beds upstairs- 1 King Size bed in 1rst bedroom, 1 King bed & 1 Full size bed in 2nd bedroom, and 1 full size bed in smaller bedroom. Also upstairs is one full bathroom and one half bathroom. Fresh towels and linens are provided for guests.

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!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this cozy location for a girls get away weekend and it was great! So much space- big kitchen and dining area, such a cute screened in porch, and located right outside of downtown Ithaca. We couldn't have asked for better! We also were just a few miles from amazing hiking trails to the waterfalls. I would absolutely book again!

Great location, wonderful yard.

  • 3 of 5

This house is a cozy, comfortable house, but nothing fancy. It was the perfect location for a home base while exploring Ithaca. The bed in the smallest bedroom was really just a light foam pad and very uncomfortable, but the other beds were adequate. Our small dog loved the yard and the dog door! The owner was very responsive, welcoming and helpful.

Quaint and comfortanle close to downtown Ithaca

  • 5 of 5

Older home with gorgeous trim and vintage charm super close to downtown Ithaca. Had my 2 small dogs with us and they loved the very large yard, where we spent a few nights enjoying the summer nights. the house was very comfortable and the owners provided kitchen items and plenty of supplies to make this a very convenient and comfortable stay. Plenty of parking in the back of the house to allow our family to visit as well. Thanks!

Very well-located, great yard, off street parking

  • 5 of 5

This house was plenty big enough for 5 adults, and we could have slept more in the living room if necessary. I booked it because it was dog-friendly but ended up not bringing my pooch. However, the yard is fenced and large and would have been a great space for her. The location was within a short drive of everything we wanted to go to. I really enjoyed the screen porch and the general character of the house. I do agree with a previous reviewer who said if you want a luxury hotel, this isn't it. It's an older home with older home issues, and is way way better than a hotel. The host, Susan, is responsive, easy to work with, and generous with the comforts that are provided - kitchen staples and paper products, coffee, tea. We would have used the grill if we'd stayed one more day - you can't get that in a hotel. You can't get two bathrooms and 2 tvs in a hotel without paying a lot more either. My two slight negatives are 1) we couldn't get the portable a/c to work and 2) the cleaners could take a little more time with dusting and wiping down surfaces. Neither of these things would keep me from staying again because it was a great place to stay and no place is perfect.

Great stay in Ithaca

Great stay and very responsive owner. Convenient location and great home for relaxing. Good hike to a gorge about a quarter of a mile up the road.
