Walk, bike, or bus to everything from this bright, open home in the heart of Ithaca's favorite neighborhood, Fall Creek. Centrally located and near Gimme Coffee, NorthStar Pub, Falls Diner, Ithaca Falls, Cascadilla Gorge, Ithaca Commons and Farmer's Market, and Cornell University. Here, you can take a break from a busy day and enjoy a relaxing, quiet space, a spacious private room, comfortable queen bed, and garden views. A large bath and two bedrooms are upstairs near the quest room.
The space is open and clean with a calm, minimalist vibe and a colorful collection of arts and crafts from local artists makes everything feel creative and bright. Plants and gardens surround the house, and porches and during the summer months, guests enjoy fresh cut garden flower too. This house is all about feeling refreshed and renewed, in a little urban paradise.
Enjoy the house, front porch an back deck. Things are simple and uncluttered and it's easy to curl up with a book, or a simple meal. A coffee station is set up in the kitchen for guests to use, and includes microwave, toaster over, teas, coffees and healthy snacks for your enjoyment. A shelf in the refrigerator is reserved for guests too. Cooking in the kitchen is not available to guests, unless the a whole house rental agreement in made. Interested in that, let me know.
Interaction with guests
Ask away. I'm happy to answer questions, and share what I know about this beautiful area. I can recommend great places to eat, drink, hike, swim, ski, or to experience the vibrant community education, arts and music scenes.
Other things to note
The house really is retreat like: clean, uncluttered, and calming. As such, it is also a shoe free zone. Think warm socks and relaxing while inside.

I'm an educator and gardener living in Ithaca, NY. Learning new things and meeting new people are two things that I absolutely enjoy. I try to live simply and sustainably, and enjoy sharing my home, gardens, and meals with friends, and travelers. I also practice yoga, and social dance, and I'm always looking for ways to connect others to these and other fun parts of the Ithaca community.
