About this listing
Please check our detailed description! we are not a typical place to stay, it is unplugged as far as wiFi, green as in composting toilet and organic breakfasts, and a very "tiny-house" type of experience. Requests for 2 night weekends, only please.
Small Graces B&B. Our family rents our small timber frame cottage at the edge of a wood, on our 18 acre farm. Built very "green", with composting potty, no VOC paint and finishes. Ships-ladder style steps to upstairs loft room, that we do not recommend for elderly or children!!! Includes full bathroom indoors with antique roll-top platform tub, kitchenette includes microwave, sink, mini fridge and toaster oven, indoor and outdoor eating areas, upstairs antique iron full bed, downstairs Queen size futon. Outdoor private sparoom. Simple and local decorating. We welcome you to take a hike in the nearby state forest lands, or drive to Cayuga lake in near-by Ithaca, NY. (Fingerlakes area)
We are out in the country, but a beautiful drive to Ithaca, Binghamton, Watkins Glen. Great places to eat in Owego and Ithaca, including the famous vegetarian Moosewood Cafe.
Chose rental by the night, including an organic breakfast served to your handmade wooden door, or weekly rates that include breakfast on the weekend. We serve local foods, including many farm-grown ingredients from our organic garden. We cook for special diets, including Gluten free, vegetarian and vegan. Outdoor spa-room with a shower hanging from a tree makes a romatic getaway for two!! Our family welcomes children, for an additional small fee. We frequently give tours on our farm where we do things as organically as possible. Our farm features horses, sheep, poultry, cows, a tiny fruit orchard, a greenhouse and honeybees.
Our goals this year are to add an outdoor grill and two vintage bicycles and helmets. Keep your fingers crossed that this works out!!! We do not allow pets since we strive to keep the cottage as allergy-free as possible.
And please note: this listing is including all applicable taxes!
Guests are welcomed to their own private drive leading to their cottage in a little wood. From memorial day to Labor day guests are welcome to use the outdoor spa room, with an antique roll top tub and a shower that hangs from a tree, sparkling lights and candles. There is a deck for outdoor breakfast weather permitting and two bicycles that guests are welcome to use in our neighborhood.
Interaction with Guests
As much as needed, we always try to welcome our guests and of course take care of any needs they have, but most people come here for a get away and need time to themselves. So we try to be very aware of how much interaction our guests are needing. One way some guests like to get to know us is having a farm tour. (Please ask for the tour at reservation time so we can plan ahead)
It is rural in a wild and beautiful way. State forest lands are so beautiful to hike and there are old farm houses and hill top views as you are driving about.
NO! anything but, we are very rural, please expect that along with the peaceful buffer of beautiful land around us comes a somewhat long drive to eat out or shop!!
Other Things to Note
please, no pets. we are a farm.
there is a composting toilet.
Ship style ladder, which will not match up well with Elderly or Children. Thank you!
Our family welcomes you to tour the farm, with a family guide. (Please let us know at reservation time so we can plan ahead) There is no smoking inside, and we prefer no children upstairs as it is a loft. The hours to come and go are totally flexible if you contact us beforehand, so we know what to expect, but you cannot check in before 3pm, as we may still be cleaning from previous guests. Come to the blue far house to check in and we will get you settled!
