A labor of love- 4 bdr, 3 ba 3200 sq ft house with farm and mountain views situated 8 miles south west of Ithaca and Cayuga Lake. Close to both Cornell and Ithaca College, many beautiful "gorges", other Fingerlakes and wineries.

The space

The house at Flora Farms is located on a working 100 acre orchard and flower farm. There are 3 bedrooms with queen sized tempurpedic beds, 1 bedroom with 2 twin beds. There are 2 bathrooms on the main foor and 1 bathroom in the finished basement. The kitchen is open to the dining room and living room which leads to a deck, a private fenced yard and gardens. The living room is very spacious and filled with windows, gorgeous farm views and overlooks our swimming pool and cottage. The swimming is available for use by the renters of the house, the cottage and farm residence.

Additional property for rent is our poolside cottage which has a kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor (pool level). Not included in the rental is the open space on the main floor with a loft. The open space is not furnished as we use it for yoga classes on occasion. Our property is perfect for gatherings, family reunions, wellness retreats, etc. Unfortunately, we no longer allow weddings at the farm. There are many flower fields, apple, cherry, and pear orchards (used by Eve's Cidery to make their amazing cider) with wonderful trails to explore either by foot, bike, snowshoe and cross-country ski.

The flower farm is called Plenty of Posies and sells at the Ithaca Farmers Market (a wonderful weekend event on Cayuga Lake inlet in season) and caterers to many weddings in the area. Flora Farms has relationships with many of the areas finest caterers, musicians, massage therapists, ayurvedic consultants, life coaches, yoga instructors, chefs and our own onsite amazingly talented florists. We can align you with professional to customize a private event for you and your group.

Flora Farms is close to all of the wonderous parks that our area is known for, Cayuga and Seneca Lake, the Fingerlakes Wine Trail, Cornell University and Ithaca College. We have a very relaxed, beautifully designed, natural environment here that we hope you will come and enjoy. It is just a wonderful place to be.

There is public transportation located approximately 2 miles away in Newfield Center. We are 9 miles outside Ithaca, 10 mins to Ithaca College and 15 mins to Cornell University. Continental breakfast and private chef are available upon request for an additional charge.

****Sorry, but we do not allow pets of any kind under any circumstance, we can recommend a wonderful boarding/kennel that is relatively close to the farm.

If both the house and the cottage have not been rented together, interaction with other guests or residents is possible, especially by the pool when in season.

Kimi and Andy are quite possibly the most gracious hosts we've ever had the pleasure of dealing with! Their home was soo gorgeous, immaculately kept, very comfortable, and incredibly welcoming to all of our friends and family that stayed for our wedding weekend. Despite the stress of all the wedding hubbub, Kimi and Andy's house emanated a sense of calm and peacefulness that really added a special touch to the time we spent there. Not only is the house incredible, but the property as well...everyone was wishing we had more time to explore the surroundings, but we might have to just plan for that in the future! Communication before, during and after our stay was great, and Kimi was super accommodating to anything we asked for. I would, without a doubt, highly recommend staying for at least a long weekend (if not longer!)...and my husband and I can't wait till our next visit to the property. What an amazing weekend and an amazing place to spend time with the ones we love!! Thanks again for EVERYTHING! :) <3

Kimi & Andy are some of the most gracious people I have ever had the pleasure of interacting with and their home is such a special place. It truly exceeds expectations. The photos here are good, but the reality is even better! Sunlight pours through the living room windows in the early morning. The views from the deck are breathtaking. The kitchen is beautifully appointed. Everything about this home is perfection. We had a group of ten ladies-- all slept comfortably with plenty of space. We enjoyed coffee on the deck in the morning and later watching a thunderstorm roll through. We strolled the orchards and marveled at the fields of golden rod. While relaxing in the pool one afternoon, we watched the barn swallows swooping and were lucky enough to see a Great Blue Heron soar just overhead. It's impossible to adequately describe the magic of this home. I hope to visit again soon!

The house was immaculate, modern and well appointed. We stayed the night before and night of my daughter's wedding in the area. The house was a welcoming location. Kimi also gave us a great deal on the wedding flowers. I highly recommend this comfortable and relaxing location.

My family and I had a great stay at the house! Highly recommend for people looking for a homey place to stay near Ithaca. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was beautiful and everything felt like home! Would stay here again if I ever needed to travel there with my family in the future. Kimi was clear about house rules, gave us a tour and was very accommodating. It is a little drive from Ithaca, so just make sure to leave 20 minutes to get where you are going!
