The owner Wes is delightful. The property is clean, well-maintained, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The interior has a comfortable modern-rustic feel to it. Everything you need is there from a landline phone to stocked linens to kitchenware. Nestled in woodlands, it's incredibly quiet with the exception of hearing beautiful songbirds, though with the windows closed you can hear a pin drop. My favorite part was sitting at the breakfast table next to the window, opening the windows, and listening to the birds and watching them by the tree by the bird feeder. Delightful! This place has a well-thought out layout and amenities.

One thing to note is on our drive there we took a bumpy road - I believe it was Brenda Lee Rd - which is fine for AWD vehicles. There is another route to the house that is better maintained taking South Danby Road to John Howland. It is worth the extra 5 minutes or so and you can take this route anywhere.

Nice secluded place.

  • 5 of 5

Our family was visiting Cornell. Little farther place from Cornell but secluded place & we felt very safe.

Has very nice kitchen & total 3 comfortable beds. Had TV with Tivo, we were able to watch NBA final. We hope we will stay this place again when we go back to Cornell.

Rural setting. Very beautiful one story. Great place to stay 20 minutes from Cornell. Comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer. Had everything we needed. Spacious. Nice owners.

Peaceful, quiet forest retreat

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our 2-day stay. Wes welcomed us, and provided us with local information. The apartment was comfortable with lovely views of the surrounding forest. Walking around the paths and trails on and near the property amid the full fall colors was a highlight of the trip.

Fun, clean, and cozy property in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the property. We walked the woods of the property and exploring the accessible gorges of the Finger Lakes region. The property is a short and pleasant drive from Ithaca. We brought food from the Ithaca Farmer's Market and cooked every night at the Raven.

Comfortable apartment in a lovely wooded setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment over a long weekend while visiting our daughter in Ithaca and really enjoyed it. The location is perfect -- nestled in a peaceful forested area that's only a short drive from Ithaca. The apartment is nicely furnished and spacious, and the kitchen is especially well-appointed. It also comes with DirecTV and Wifi for your media needs. The owner Wes is very friendly and he met us personally to show us around. If we have the chance to go back, I would definitely hope to stay here again.
