About Betsy or Alan Del Mauro

My husband Alan and I grew up in a small town in NJ, only 30 minutes from NYC, we both knew we wanted to experience country living and found these beautiful views of the rolling hills to be breathtaking and very relaxing. We have lived in Candor for about 33 years now and are very happy here. I am a retired teacher and my husband is retired from the wholesale florist business.

Betsy or Alan Del Mauro purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Betsy or Alan Del Mauro chose New York

We built the log cabin vacation rental on our 300 acre property because it is secluded in a beautiful country area where guests can relax and watch the whitetail deer and turkey that roam the fields- yet it is close enough to also be able to visit the nearby attractions. It's location really provides the best of both worlds- allowing guests to escape their busy lives and enjoy the peaceful environment while also offering exciting attractions to visit. We know you will enjoy the beauty of the property and the unique feeling of staying in a real log cabin.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The log cabin is beautiful, my 3 sons were just so excited to be staying in a real log cabin and sleeping in the loft bedroom w/balcony was very special. The outdoor campfire area where we made smores was a big hit! Traveling into Ithaca to walk the beautiful waterfalls and gorges was very direct and convenient, the cabin contained all the amenities we needed to make our stay perfect. We will be back in the summer.

Everything we expected and more!

  • 5 of 5

The Log Cabin is a beautiful setting. The kitchen is beautiful and open to the living area. There's a large dining table that seats 8 for meals. The bedrooms were as pictured. The place was very clean and well kept.

We rented both of their properties for a family reunion - 85th birthday weekend. I live locally but wanted a place that could hold all the guests coming in to town. The combination of the Log cabin and the Country Home together was perfect!

The location is very peaceful and quiet. Many in our group took hikes both in the day and at night, wandering the woods and enjoying the local scenery.

Working with Betsy and Alan was simple and enjoyable. From the booking to when we stayed, Betsy answered all the questions. They are also close by and quickly can answer or stop if there is a issue.

While we had a planned reunion, several of the family drove to Ithaca on different days to enjoy the shopping, farmer's market and hike. Ithaca is an easy drive away (25 minutes).

My family is already thinking about returning to the Log Cabin

Great Place and AWESOME host

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place! Great cabin, with all the comforts. We were 3, but the place can easily sleep 8. 30 mins from Ithaca. The kitchen was well equipped with oil, spices etc and all the appliances.

Plan to have a BBQ on the grill outside, while you watch the camp fire in the pit ahead...wood etc was all provided for.

Betsy was a real pleasure to work with. Always willing to accommodate and available to answer questions.

Relaxing Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family got together for Mother's Day weekend and this was the perfect place to meet. The cabin is exactly how it looks in the pictures and was extremely clean. It was a convenient drive to Ithaca for shopping, restaurants, and waterfalls, but so secluded and relaxing when we wanted some down-time. The big screen TV and DVD player came in handy for the rainy afternoons. Betsy was very welcoming and available to answer any questions. She also was very accommodating when we didn't know if we'd have 4 or 5 occupants until shortly before our stay. I definitely recommend this cabin as a relaxing and comfortable place to spend time together with friends or family.

Team of us staying for a nearby spartan race. Owners were very easy and flexible and gracious to help and work with us. Definitely an open lodge noise factor to consider, country water smell but other than that a really great place to stay. We enjoyed it and would go back!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the wonderful review, we are glad you found us "easy and flexible" and that we were able to accommodate all your special requests. So proud of your group of friends, it takes a certain type to be involved in the Spartan races - with all of your enthusiasm there was bound to be a lot of noisy encouragement from such a large team. We are happy you were able to enjoy the peace and "TRANQUILITY" of the beautiful log cabin. Thanks again, Betsy & Alan

This was the perfect place for a quiet weekend. rented the cabin for New Year's weekend with my girlfriend and her five-year-old son. More than enough space all the amenities huge property if you're looking for quiet this is definitely the place to go. Can't wait to go back in the spring! Couldn't ask for a nicer house at a reasonable price the owners made you feel like the house was yours cute little town not too far was more space than what we needed but perfect with a five-year-old to not feel cramped highly recommended
