The SpaceClose to Ithaca, NY, Cayuga Lake, and Cornell University. Once a snowshoe lodge, then a Boy Scout camp, this 150 acre rustic cabin property is surrounded by the Robinson Hollow State Forest. The 100 year old cabin sits only a few hundred yards from the Sierra Club section of the Finger Lakes Trail. The area is a peaceful spot for hiking, camping and snowshoeing or cross country skiing. Perfect get-away for humans and their four-legged friends, it's a dog's dream vacation spot. Enjoy a weekend or your vacation in a place where the "noise" is the melodious sounds of nature. It is remote enough to completely break from urban life, yet close enough to Ithaca, NY to enjoy its beauty and attractions. Amenities: outhouse, hand water pump, propane grill, some pots and pans, grill utensils, wood stoves, private, gated entrance, pond, trails. Sleeping loft, no bed (you provide mattress/sleeping bag, etc.). NO ELECTRIC or RUNNING WATER/PLUMBING. There may be candles, toilet paper, bug spray (left by previous guests). There is nearby wood you can gather; should you need to chop to fit the stove, bring your own axe (use at your own risk). All items and trash are carry-in, carry out. Security deposit will be collected. Extra persons above 4 rates per night per person: Holidays and Hunting Seasons: $25 Other seasons: $15 Guest AccessEntire 150 acres, cabin, pond. Interaction with GuestsI prefer to welcome guests, exchange the key at check in, however, I travel for work and can make arrangements for self-check in when necessary. The NeighborhoodIt is a quiet, rural, farming area. Once at the cabin there are only two to three houses within a half mile (through the woods), so you will have a private space all your own. Getting AroundThere is no public transportation in the immediate vicinity (a bus route is 1.5 miles away). Other Things to NoteNO electric or running water (water pump and outhouse is available). Dogs and children are welcome!! Here's a brief list of the basics to bring: Light source: Lantern propane or battery (there are flashlights on site, but the batteries may be low or gone). Air mattress or cot and whatever bedding you need. Paper products (cups, plates, utensils, toilet paper, etc.) Matches/fire starter (there is wood and newspaper on-site, and a propane grill for cooking that has a self-starter) Bug spray Cooler and ice Lawn chairs There are a few tables, several chairs and benches. There are 2 picnic tables (one outside and one inside). The benches can be moved outside if you'd like, just move them back inside before you leave. The propane grill should also be moved outside if you plan to use it. There is a hand axe in the cabin to shave kindling, and the wood is already split to be the length for the wood stove, as needed. Gas: 5 miles away If you plan to grocery shop when you get to the area, the closest store is at East Hill Plaza in Ithaca, about 9 miles past where the cabin is (I can give you all that info if you like). There is lots to explore/see/do in the Ithaca area if you decide to come down off the hill one of the days. I'll have some brochures and things in the cabin, and can answer questions (aka where is the best ice cream, dinner, etc.).

Ithaca's superb restaurants, cinema, bookstores, gourmet groceries, libraries, live theater and museum are close at hand, and the Finger Lakes wineries and Corning Museum of Glass are an easy day trip.
