We rented the entire house and It was an amazing space for my sisters bachelorette party weekend. The house is clean, open and so comfortable to be in. It was truly a home away from home and we will definitely be going back.

We stayed at Amy and Valerie's place for a college reunion and the space was perfect for our group of 13. As each group joined the reunion, to a person, they remarked immediately on how great the house is. We had good privacy in the many bedrooms and the open area was great for gathering time... the giant table seated a large group very comfortably. The open concept kitchen was well equipped and allowed the cooks to stay connected as the reunion continued throughout the evening. There is a lovely deck with plenty of room for a crowd and the setting was really lovely...quiet (except for our reunion chatter) with great views. The hot air balloons were really fun to watch too! Our group were all Cornell alumni and we were within a short drive of Sapsucker Woods and the Cornell campus. Amy and Valerie are great hosts. We had many questions throughout or planning period and they were very responsive throughout, and seemed genuinely enthusiastic about sharing their home with us. They were also very flexible...we had a last minute change in plan that they accommodated without flinching. Thanks for a great experience!

This house is ideal for a large group of friends or family. We had a group of 11-13 people over a long weekend for our college reunion. The open layout suited our needs perfectly and the back porch (with swing) was great for morning coffee. Amy and Valerie offered us the whole house which included a downstairs apartment accessible through the main house. The extra bedrooms and bathroom made getting ready much easier for us - I'm so glad they gave us this option! The neighborhood is very peaceful and only a short drive to all the main attractions of Ithaca. I only wish we had more time to spend there!

We are a friendly, quiet family out here in the countryside of Ithaca. We love living in Ithaca in our new home that has great views. Starting the day with a good cup of coffee in the window seat as the sun rises, cooking for family and friends in our dream kitchen, or curled-up on the leather couch at the end of the day with a glass of wine, fire, and movie as the sun sets is how we like it best at home. Some people relax in the soaker tub. Who knew that building a house could end up like this! We love to share this space with others and hear stories of other folks' travels. We like people to feel comfortable making themselves at home with just the right amount of interaction to have what they need. Some guests decide to join us for dinner!
