Spacious, ground level studio apartment with full, updated kitchen & bathroom (w/ tub) with bamboo floors. The queen size bed is partially separated from the living room by a breakfast counter. Living room has 2 daybeds. Sleeps 4.
Full cable TV. The wood pellet stove is controlled by thermostat.
This is a delightful, comfortable, clean and spacious yet cozy apartment. It's on a large picturesque country lot, yet only about 4 miles from downtown Ithaca, Ithaca College, and Cornell University. The new modern kitchen has a full refrigerator, oven, stove, toaster, blender, coffee maker, dishes, and plenty of utensils and cookware. I will leave basic breakfast foods such as coffee, tea, w.w. bread, local eggs and oatmeal. No need to bring water as my well water is very good. There is also a Britta filter.
The bathroom is as new and elegant as the kitchen with a full bath tub and shower. Both the kitchen and bathroom have bamboo floors.
There's a queen size bed in the main bedroom and two single daybeds in the living room. Enjoy the high speed Wifi and the multi-channeled cable TV with many movie channels.
I can help orient you and make recommendations for things to see and do. Upper Buttermilk Falls State Park is only about 2-3 miles away. Taughannock Falls State Park (said to be the highest waterfall east of the Rockies!) is 8 miles from Ithaca, along Cayuga Lake. Treman State Park is also exquisite.
You may want to try the wine trails, the Farmers' Markets, a boat ride on the lake, or enjoy the abundance of very talented musicians and other high quality arts and museums.
Coddington is a safe, peaceful, scenic, country road that leads straight into town. You may want to stock up on food provisions before you come out because all the restaurants and food stores are in Ithaca which is 10 minutes away.
Parking is directly in front of your door to make it easy to carry things in and out.
Hope to see you!

The "number of guests" that you bring includes all children, regardless of age.
No pets allowed...sorry.
This is a quiet house, so we're looking for quiet, respectful people.
No smoking of course.
Quiet, friendly, responsible, retired Cornell library supervisor and former massage therapist. I love travel, music, dance, yoga, natural foods, holistic health and am passionate about doing whatever I can to help save our environment. (Are you willing to recycle and compost? It's easy!)
I began hosting on Airbnb in the summer of 2013 and it has been a huge success. Since then, I have hosted over 600 people.
I'm so happy that people truly enjoy the Studio apartment, the 3 bedroom apartment and the guest rooms all here within my spacious home.
Having lived in Ithaca since 1970, I may be able to offer you a few pointers on things to do, like seeing some of the many nearby waterfalls and gorges.
Note: you may want to buy groceries or go out to eat before getting to my house. It's approximately 4 miles to Ithaca, on Coddington Road, which is approximately 10 minutes to drive.
I hope to see you here!
