Very nice, quiet property with lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

Myself and four motorcycle buddies stayed for a week to ride around the Finger Lakes and northern Pennsylvania areas. The location was only 5 minutes from Watkins Glen where we were able to get everything we needed. We would have breakfast in the morning and then go for a ride. In the afternoon we would come back, make dinner and then sit around a camp fire, have a few drinks and tell stories without fear of disturbing the neighbors. The owners were great in arranging to have firewood on site (for a fee) so that we didn't have to carry it on the bikes. Everyone in the group thought the place was perfect for us.

Room for all

  • 4 of 5

This charming country/farm house is very spacious and comfortable. We had plenty of room for everyone and the property is very peaceful. Hot tub was a nice bonus. We were there for Ithaca graduation and it was easy to get to.

One thing to keep in mind is there is only one shower, the other bathroom is a tub only. We were ok with it and made it work. Just something to keep in mind.

Great house, great location near to my family, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay and had plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 dogs. My only disappointment was that the outdoor kennel/dog run appeared to simply be a kennel on the far side of the yard from the house with 3 or 4 separate pens. Not a big deal, but my dog loves running more than anything else and I did not see an ability for him to do that in the enclosure. Again, not a big deal, and I definitely plan to stay here again. Thanks to the Kleists, they were very accommodating and understanding to our needs, and the house is beautiful.

Winter fun & family time

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a cabin or house where two families with three kids (10, 14 and 16) and three dogs would be comfortable spending a week together. Huckleberry Acres was the right place for us. The house is spacious - the website description and photos give a good idea of the property. We also enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit. As a bonus, on three days there was just enough snow for us to go sledding right on the front yard's slope. That worked out perfect! Watkins Glen, grocery store and restaurants are conveniently close. We made day trips to Ithaca (about 35 minutes one way) and Corning's Class Museum (about an hour one way). Owners were friendly and responsive throughout the booking, stay and feedback process. :)

No area of the yard is fenced. The dog run mentioned in the description consists of four adjacent, roomy but not heated "dog houses". They might work for hunting dogs but we chose not to use them for our "city dogs".

Cosy and spacious farm house

  • 5 of 5

The farmhouse is a beautiful property, and it makes for a great weekend away in upstate New York. The house is very spacious and beautifully decorated. Moreover, it's only a short drive to the gorgeous Watkins Glenn - a great place to take in the beauty of autumn and do some hiking. The owners were quick to respond and they were incredibly accommodating and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful stay that's only a stone's throw away from beautiful parks and the city of Ithaca.

the owners of this home have well maintained it, it was clean, the dacor was all from the era.

  • 5 of 5

When we entered the home it was a nice feeling of a home not a house. With the vintage decorations , all appliances working and a hot tub you were permitted to use. The owners are very nice people also. I am rating them too. 6 star
