Welcome to a bright, cheerful, and cozy home away from home! Comfy, inviting spaces await you. My house is located on a quiet street with tons of parking, a fenced yard, walking distance to downtown, dining, shopping, and all amenities.

The space

I love my home! I've filled it with bright colors and eclectic art and furnishings. There are two lovely bedrooms and a comfortable (really!) convertible futon/bed in the living room. The bathroom is brand-newly remodeled. The spacious, eat-in kitchen invites you. Work out on the elliptical machine or relax in the garden when the weather is nice. Enjoy your stay!

Guest access

Guests have full access to all living areas: kitchen, living room, lounge, exercise room, fenced backyard. Washing machine and wi-fi.

Interaction with guests

When renting the whole house, guests will have complete privacy, but I can offer local recommendations, advice, maps, etc. by email ahead of time or at check-in.

Other things to note

Dog allergy? When the house is not rented out, my dog lives here with me. The house will be immaculately clean for you, but the severely allergic may prefer to seek a dog-free house.

Very comfortable for 5 people. Cute home, relaxed and charming, spacious. Close to a lot of the sites in Ithaca. Communication with Leslie was always prompt and she was very accommodating for our needs. Would definitely stay here again.

Staying at Leslie's place was wonderful! We had a girls weekend getaway and all six of us were very comfortable and we had a GREAT time. The house is bigger than we expected from the pictures and the backyard is a great space. Leslie was a wonderful host and was very responsive as we prepared to check in and we did not run into any problems during our stay. Check in/out was very easy and straight forward. Plenty of street parking and we were able to walk to a lot of restaurants and bars. Leslie gave us lots of recommendations for anything we might have needed in the area. The house was very clean when we arrived, except for the dog bed tucked into one of the corners, you would never guess that she owns a dog. The only thing we noticed were some ants in the kitchen and bathroom but it didn't really impact our experience. As the posting says, there isn't a tv but there are tons of books and it is pretty wonderful to have a weekend away from tv. No dishwasher either but we didn't mind that at all. It was a really amazing weekend in large part to how great Leslie's place is and we were sad to see it come to an end! Thank you so much!!
