This house is very remote and small. It does have a musty odor to it

Response from Don:
I'm sorry you weren't happy with your experience. I'm not sure what you mean that the house is remote, or small. Just as advertised in the listing, it is 8 miles from Ithaca and 2 miles from Trumansburg, and 2 miles from Taughannock State Park and Cayuga Lake. In the listing it is also clear that there is a corn field across the street, and woods behind the house. Most of my guests are very happy with the location! (As am I!) Again, most of my guests comment on the generous size of the house. True, it is certainly not a McMansion! It a 3 bedroom ranch house built in the 60s. I apologize about any odor. Once again, most of my guests love it there and give me 5 star reviews. I am sorry it was not the right place for you.

We spent two nights at Don's place with the family. Our stay was pleasant and just as expected. The place was very clean and rustic, as seen on the pictures. The mattresses were excellent. Don was very accommodating and gave us useful advice on local cafes and restaurants.

The retreat is a beautiful property and a great value. The place is much bigger than I realized, nice new kitchen for cooking meals, and the bedrooms are incredibly spacious. And the rumors are true, the internet is great. I work in video and need to be able to upload large files…

this place was just as advertised, a peaceful getaway. though the house was a bit Spartan, we had all the amenities we needed. beds were especially comfortable, which was the most important thing. the bath water could have been a bit hotter, I should have asked about turning up …

Thank you for visit and review. I am so glad that you found it to be comfortable, restful, and quiet. I'll check the hot water, but it's the first I've heard that it might not be hot enough. Haha, I like to think of the house as uncluttered rather than Spartan! But I'm glad you found everything you needed.

Hi, I lived in Brooklyn and Manhattan for many, many years, but now I live across from a cornfield in upstate New York, near Ithaca. It's very quiet and relaxing! I am a bass clarinetist and saxophonist, traveling sometimes to perform. I've never liked hotels much, and pr…
