Everything was perfect. and if you are a foodie and want to cook they give you 95% of what you need--utentsils, cookware , herbs etc.If they add wind chimes and bird feeders it would be a "slice of paradise".

About the neighbourhood
There's so much to do and see! We're just 8 miles to fabulous dining, shopping and cultural events in downtown Ithaca. Dozens of wineries, breweries, distilleries and cideries, along with our vibrant local foods scene, make the entire Finger Lakes region a fabulous destination for foodies. There are unlimited hiking opportunities, fabulous waterfalls, biking, cross-country skiing, birding, boating, paddleboarding. We're not far from Watkins Glen International Raceway, Corning Museum of Glass, the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park, and countless other destinations including Cornell University and Ithaca College.
Getting around
Since we're off the beaten track, you will need a car to get around and see other sights in the Ithaca and Finger Lakes area. However, if you just want to stay put in the cottage (and enjoy the many gorgeous hikes you can take from your front door) let us know. We may be able to provide transportation to and from the bus station or airport.
