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.

The space

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.

We had a great week staying at Diana's. Diana was a friendly and helpful host and the location was convenient for a bunch of hiking that we did at Taughannock and Robert Treman state parks. It's also only a few miles to downtown Trumansburg where we liked to eat. The room was large with a nice big double window, fan, and very clean, and the bed very comfy. As an added treat we went to see Diana's jazz trio perform while we had brunch on a deck over at Lake Seneca. All in all a terrific week.

Diana was a great host! She left us a welcome note because she was not sure if she would be there when we arrived. She even asked what beverages we preferred for the mornings, and she had them available along with muffins. She offered hiking and restaurant suggestions upon request. The room was exactly as advertised, clean and comfortable along with a private bathroom. The kitchen is beautiful, and has a nice table overlooking the backyard and bird feeder. Overall, we had a great stay and Diana was a great host.

Diana was an excellent host with a beautiful place just outside of Ithaca. She was very considerate leaving muffins for breakfast and making her coffee maker readily available to us to use. She had a number of good suggestions about places to see in the area. I definitely recommend staying with her.

Diana was very quick to respond to my inquiry and very welcoming upon arrival, even tough it was after midnight. The room was exactly as described and photographed. It was very clean, comfortable and had it's own private and spacious full bath. The room has a comfortable queen bed, a window unit air conditioner, an overhead fan and a very nice cork floor. This room is very close to Taughannock Falls State Park, which has a beautiful swimmable beach on Lake Cayuga, as well as a dramatic waterfall. Diana's place is also in the middle of wine country, so is a great location if you want to visit the many vineyards in the area. It's a few miles outside of Ithaca, but if you are looking for a country setting that is quiet and convenient to many of the Finger Lakes outdoor activities, this is a ideal and affordable place to stay.

Diana was very congenial and helpful with all kinds of questions about the area. She met us, provided a key, offered some toiletries we did not have (our bags got lost) and was overall cheery in general! She also provided coffee and muffins in the morning. Very nice person and a very nice place to stay!

Diana User ProfileDiana is a superhost.

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!
