About this listing
Comfortable ranch in the countryside, just 8 miles to Ithaca and 2 to Trumansburg. Great starting point for exploring wine trails, antiquing, or hiking the gorges. An easy drive to restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and all the amenities of town.
Lovely, tastefully decorated large room with queen bed, closet and full bath. The mattress is extremely comfortable! Room has its own heat control and a multi-speed ceiling fan. Windows overlook pretty back yard, where wildlife is frequently seen. Also enjoy the outdoor space from the large deck (accessible through the kitchen). Can accommodate up to two people.
Coffee, teas, and/or juice will be provided for you to enjoy at your convenience. Wi-fi, off-street parking, washer-dryer available. No dogs or other pets, please. No smoking on the premises. Kitchen use is not permitted (beyond making coffee or tea as provided) due to insurance reasons. There is an apartment in the lower level, therefore please be relatively quiet in the late evenings and early mornings. Shoes off inside; also please refrain from rolling luggage down the hall. Be nice to the cat.

Friendly & outgoing, yet quiet & private... seems like a paradox, but actually it allows me to be helpful and accommodating, while respecting your need for space and privacy at the same time. That said, I'm an upbeat person, love hiking, and all the natural beauty here. I like to cook with whole foods. I enjoy good coffee, travel, and conversations with interesting people. Play backgammon? That could be a plus!
