Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Susan's sun-filled country home was everything she promised in the listing. My friends and I were in the area to visit parks and wanted to stay some place scenic where we could relax after hiking. We loved walking on the trails around her house, dining out on the deck, and watching stars from the hammocks. Susan was easy to communicate with and was flexible with check in and check out times.

  • Susan's house is beautiful and serene. Lie in the hammock on the beautiful deck or sit at the outside table and watch the array of birds that come to the feeder and all of your problems will melt away. We live in NYC and this place was the perfect dose of quiet and calm. Susan's house is very clean and comfortable with lots of great living areas, three big beautiful bedrooms and 2 lovely bathrooms. There is also a great big yard which was perfect for our kids to explore. Susan was very responsive and easy to communicate with and checking in and out was a breeze.
    Just don't make the mistake we made and stay for only one night.

  • The accommodations were spectacular! The house was outfitted to suit every need. The surroundings were gorgeous and peaceful. The home was very artfully decorated, yet casual and extremely comfortable. The enormous deck overlooking lush woodlands was an incredible bonus. There were six of us, and we were all delighted with our time there. Susan, our hostess, was responsive, accessible and warm. Overall, a 5 star experience!

  • I was hosting a bunch of people for the first time and Susan was the most helpful! She was extremely thoughtful and pro-active while communicating and has a beautiful place in a lovely woods just off the main road. It is a very tastefully done up place. And Susan was more than happy to accommodate special requests I had. I would love to go back for another fun filled weekend.

    Any one looking at Susan's place as an option, just take it! And you will absolutely love the place and the owner. Hope to meet you in person next time.

  • Susan's house is absolutely beautiful. We had a wonderful stay- so many native birds to watch from the balcony, we even saw wild turkey! The house is very comfortable and the open fire a total bonus. We will be back for sure. Susan was fantastic with helping with directions, and keeps a very clean and gorgeously furnished home. She was very accommodating with our needs and timing and easy to contact and quick to reply.

A professional woman who loves living in the country but also craves the culture of the Ithaca / Cornell area. I have no children, so the house is not child proof. I have no pets, but two lovely, friendly cats live outdoors and bed down in my garage. I would like folks to respect and care for my home as I would care for theirs. I grew up in Queens and on LI but I am at home here. I wish I had some home-made maple syrup to share with you, but it's all gone from last year. Next year...
