About this listing
This site has been such a positive experience in my life, I thought why not share my place with adventurous travelers as well. I live in a modern ranch home near the Finger Lakes National Forest. This is a smallest national forest in America!
My house is located along the backbone ridge between Seneca and Cayuga Lake. The road I live on parallels Route 414 which is were most of the wineries and restaurants are located. Minutes from the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and minutes from great hiking in the Finger Lakes National Forest. I have two rooms available. The rooms have a futon bed. I have one bathroom available for those rooms. The rooms are perfect for a couples or a family of four.
Mi casa su casa. You will have access to my kitchen, washer and dryer as well as 10 acres of hiking trails on my property. I have two dogs and a cat on property.
Interaction with Guests
Just so you are aware, I live in other half of the house. I work in the Finger Lakes wine industry so if you have any questions at all feel free to ask. There is horseback riding, national and state parks, waterfalls and wine trails. I am happy to recommend restaurants, live music venues or just hang out and have a camp fire or grill your own meal from a wealth of local farmers markets.
I live on a sleepy little road which a great bike riding or distance running. There are wineries on Route 414 which is less than a mile down the hill. I am approximately 30 minutes from Ithaca which is a cultural mecca with two world renowned colleges and a great restaurant and music scene. I am approximately 5 minutes from the lake front town of Watkins Glen. With the Watkins Glen International Speedway and Watkins Glen State Park this little town is a buzz in summer months. The little town of Burdett has a great cafe called Berta's Cafe open for breakfast and lunch seasonally.
You are going to want to have your own car to get around the rural region in which I live in.
Other Things to Note
Please note, I do have two dogs, Runa and Bandit. Runa is a bubbly little Chocolate Lab and Bandit is a laid back Bull Mastiff. My pups mean the world to me and do stay in the house at night. If you have reservations with dogs or cats, this may not be the place for you.
I am happy to share my house with guests. Just remember you are staying in my one and only residence. The kitchen and living area are open to any and all guests. My house is clean and quaint and has a great view of Seneca Lake. Feel free to ask me any questions you like.
