À propos de ce logement

Perfect for musicians, artists, dancers, writers, yogis, Zen students, chefs, athletes, and everyone else who loves quiet and gardens. Wonderful for business people who want a relaxing place to unwind. You can see the stars!

Great location for wine trails and hiking!

Spring is coming! Come watch the gardens come to life!

2 miles to Taughannock State Park and Cayuga Lake: swimming, fishing, hiking, BBQing.

All races, ethnicities, religions, nationalities, and genders are welcome :)

Le logement

June! Peonies! Irises! Lumens!

2 miles from Trumansburg, 8 miles from Ithaca! Less than 2 miles from Taughannock Falls and Gorge trail.

Trumansburg is a small town with an unusual variety of restaurants, from down home nothing fancy, to truly fine dining (farm to table, emphasizing local, in season vegetables, fish, grains, and meats), first class pizza, world class coffee, ice cream, even a small bowling alley with excellent gourmet food at reasonable prices and a full bar built from vintage bowling lanes. They're starting to call Trumansburg the Williamsburg of Ithaca!

Ithaca boasts all sorts of cultural activities, great music, theater, movies, dancing, and more restaurants per capita than New York City.

And there is Brownie's fruit and vegetable stand a short walk from the house. Get the freshest, best tasting corn at Brownie's!

And there are literally dozens of wineries and breweries within less than a half hour drive. The Fingerlakes rock!!!

Accès des voyageurs

You will have exclusive access to the whole 3 bedroom house, including the basement.

In addition to the the 3 bedrooms, you can choose to sleep on the enclosed porch, and wake up surrounded by green!

*** Note for cold weather months: the enclosed porch is not heated, so the house has room for 5 people to sleep, not 7. Although if you want to sleep 7, I can move the two twin mattresses into the living room.

The house is delightfully uncluttered and clean!

There is WiFi, but there is no TV. Ahhh, so quiet and peaceful.

All cotton sheets!

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I live next door in a completely separate house, so will be readily available to help out however I can, including recommendations for restaurants, parks, etc. But, you will have your complete privacy unless you need me.

Sometimes I will be out of town, and sometimes my small, completely separate, house will also have guests.

Autres remarques

There is WiFi, which works fine for most purposes, downloading emails, surfing the web, looking up restaurants, etc. Apparently it is not robust enough for gaming, huge downloads, etc. But there is a set of beautiful vintage poker chips, and interesting books, stars to see in the sky, fireflies - it's a good place to really unplug. But you are connected if you need to be!

An older house in a rural area outside of Ithaca. We had a graduation to attend at Cornell, so the house worked great for us. We moved one of the mattresses on the porch, inside the house, to accommodate our 6th person. It's tricky for 6 people to share one bathroom, when getting ready for graduation events, but it worked! Thanks Don! :)

You're welcome Meaghan! It was a pleasure to be your host. *** I'm sorry there's only one bathroom, and glad you could make it work. Of course, although it's only one bathroom, it does have two scalloped sinks, with a very long mirror - I hope that helped! *** I apologize for you needing to bring one of the enclosed porch (sun room) mattresses inside one night. Many guests love to sleep in the sun room, but it was unfortunately unseasonably chilly that night! Thanks again for choosing the Fingerlakes Peaceful Retreat.

Great uncluttered retreat with all the necessities just outside Trumansburg; we enjoyed beautiful foliage (incredible lilacs!!) on quiet country road, and being so close to many hiking trails, the lakes & waterfalls, and wine country! Our group had a fun and relaxing weekend (& room/extra beds to spare in the house). Will definitely be visiting again!

We had a great time at Don's. It was very comfortable and great for our group of four with room to spare. The location is quiet and remote while still being centrally located with Ithaca and Trumansburg close by. Don was a great host and very easy to communicate with. He gave us great restaurant recommendations and was quick to respond to any questions we had. We were in town for a wedding and spent some time in Ithaca, Trumansburg, and Interlaken. All great areas and very easy to get to from Don's. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Don was very friendly and communicative. The place is just as described and is a great alternative to driving all the way into Ithaca. My wife and I (both in our mid 60’s) had her 96-year-old father with us during our stay at this Air B&B (we came in to visit relatives in Trumansburg over Thanksgiving). Although we thoroughly enjoyed the location, the comfort of the beds, the WiFi, heat and other amenities (like the coffee and tea provided) there are several things missing that would have made the stay more relaxing/enjoyable. First, a light is needed on the porch, over the main door where one inserts the key to unlock and enter the house—which is currently difficult to do after dark. Second—a banister is needed to hold onto when climbing the 3 stairs to get into the house from the mud porch. Third, a few nightlights here and there would be very helpful. I would have also appreciated curtains or blinds on all the windows (the only windows that currently have them were in just one of the three bedrooms—and without window covers many find it difficult to remain asleep early in the morning when the light comes up). None of these items may be critical to the more nimble younger folks—except maybe the curtains—but the others are safety issues that are important to the older folks.

I was happy to host such lovely people. I apologize for anything that might have made your stay a little less than hoped for :) I'm a little puzzled by some of the remarks, however. ***There is definitely a light over the front porch, over the main door. ***All of the bedrooms do have blinds on all the windows, not sure why you didn't see them?***I agree that a banister for the back 3 stairs would be a good addition, but I did write to you about that fact before you booked - so no surprises!***I like the nightlight idea! I'll put some in. Thank you for staying with me, for your feedback, and I hope you will visit again!

This was by far the best experience I've had at an AirBnB in this area (and I've stayed at quite a few). The location was beautiful-- a peaceful yard, and an easy drive from Ithaca. Inside the home, you will find any and everything needed for a comfortable stay. The space is clean and cozy. The artwork is beautiful and the furniture is comfortable and unique-- lots of character. Plenty of room for a full family visit, and just a short ride from wineries, Ithaca, state parks and lakes. Give this place a visit-- you won't regret it!

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 prefer to stay in a real apartment. Most important to me is a comfortable bed and a good shower!

I have a grown, married daughter who has her own yoga school in Manhattan. She is also a Sanskrit scholar, and I am very proud of her.

I've spent a lot of time in Brazil, and speak fluent, though flawed, Portuguese. I also understand, and speak some French. I understand slow simple Spanish.

I have been enjoying Airbnb for a number of years as a guest, and now I am also enjoying being a host. I had no idea my guest house would be so busy so quickly! It's wonderful to meet such interesting, nice people, from all parts of the world. I enjoy trying my best to make my guests feel welcome and comfortable. Of course the surrounding beautiful parks, lakes, waterfalls, friendly people, great restaurants, local produce, ice cream, wineries, and breweries make my job a lot easier. It really is an exceptionally lovely area.

I look forward to staying with you.
