Peaceful, quiet forest retreat

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our 2-day stay. Wes welcomed us, and provided us with local information. The apartment was comfortable with lovely views of the surrounding forest. Walking around the paths and trails on and near the property amid the full fall colors was a highlight of the trip.

Fun, clean, and cozy property in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the property. We walked the woods of the property and exploring the accessible gorges of the Finger Lakes region. The property is a short and pleasant drive from Ithaca. We brought food from the Ithaca Farmer's Market and cooked every night at the Raven.

Comfortable apartment in a lovely wooded setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment over a long weekend while visiting our daughter in Ithaca and really enjoyed it. The location is perfect -- nestled in a peaceful forested area that's only a short drive from Ithaca. The apartment is nicely furnished and spacious, and the kitchen is especially well-appointed. It also comes with DirecTV and Wifi for your media needs. The owner Wes is very friendly and he met us personally to show us around. If we have the chance to go back, I would definitely hope to stay here again.

We "lucked" out to find this treasure for our 3 day symposium at Cornell. What a wonderful place, sure would have enjoyed more time to truly enjoy the area and this property. Wes was great. Wish I had a kitchen like that at home, wow! It was inspiring to see the entire unit under solar power as well.

Clean, cozy, comfortable, love the in floor heating in the bathroom.. It was a nice drive to unwind from all the lectures from the university. We looked forward to just grabbing some groceries and heading "home" to enjoy the space.

Highly recommended! Looking forward to visiting again and staying longer.

Thanks for everything Wes, it was GREAT! Next time we look forward to checking out the mosaic studio downstairs.

Beautiful place to stay with everything you will need

  • 5 of 5

This is a tastefully decorated and clean apartment in a beautiful location with easy access to Ithaca. We had a longer stay here than expected due to a delayed house closing in Ithaca and had everything we needed for myself and 2 children to live very comfortably. The kitchen is well stocked and has high end appliances, there's a washer and dryer and a modern bathroom with plenty of towels, toilet rolls etc. The area is quiet with a lovely adjacent pond yet is easy to get to Ithaca (approx. 20 mins). We especially enjoyed visiting John Thomas Steakhouse and Dolce Delight (great coffee, pastries and pies) on the way into Ithaca , as well as Buttermilk Park for hiking. The cost of renting this apartment was very reasonable and was of much better quality compared with Ithaca rentals. Highly recommended.
