An idyllic place to stay. Ecovillage is a group of houses amid beautiful fields and gardens. The room was comfortable for two adults and a little one on an air mattress. Each morning we enjoyed breakfast of bagels, fresh local fruits (for example, grapes right off the vines outside), yogurt, and juice at one of the garden picnic tables. The house had a fantastic library of books on ecology and sustainability and lots of games for our little one. A perfect home base for exploring the richness of the Finger Lakes region (just 30 minutes from Watkins Glen, 10 minutes from downtown Ithaca).
