Our only negative was that wifi was slow and our cell service was poor.

Cozy and Comfortable Loft Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The Raven Barn Studio "Roost" was a perfect and affordable base for our family vacation as well as for conducting college tours for our daughter in the Ithaca and Finger Lakes region. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen, nice stove and refrigerator and washer and dryer for convenience. Our 13-year-old son will always remember his unique sleeping arrangement in the loft that's accessible by climbing a ladder. As our daughter and I are aspiring artists, it was an added bonus to be able to take a peek into the ceramics studio below and also see Wes and his wife doing their beautiful mosaic work at the Science Center in Ithaca. We are very grateful for the opportunity to stay here!

The owner Wes is delightful. The property is clean, well-maintained, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The interior has a comfortable modern-rustic feel to it. Everything you need is there from a landline phone to stocked linens to kitchenware. Nestled in woodlands, it's incredibly quiet with the exception of hearing beautiful songbirds, though with the windows closed you can hear a pin drop. My favorite part was sitting at the breakfast table next to the window, opening the windows, and listening to the birds and watching them by the tree by the bird feeder. Delightful! This place has a well-thought out layout and amenities.

One thing to note is on our drive there we took a bumpy road - I believe it was Brenda Lee Rd - which is fine for AWD vehicles. There is another route to the house that is better maintained taking South Danby Road to John Howland. It is worth the extra 5 minutes or so and you can take this route anywhere.

Nice secluded place.

  • 5 of 5

Our family was visiting Cornell. Little farther place from Cornell but secluded place & we felt very safe.

Has very nice kitchen & total 3 comfortable beds. Had TV with Tivo, we were able to watch NBA final. We hope we will stay this place again when we go back to Cornell.
