Loved this place! We were looking for a getaway that wasn’t a typical hotel room and this is just what we needed. The lodging is like little cottages. We were in the Finger Lakes unit, which had a bedroom on each side (no doors, but could use a portable divider if desired) Countertop, sink, refrigerator and bathroom between the two bedrooms. All unique décor. Bathroom was extremely unique. Mosaic of the Finger Lakes in the shower, motion activated and heated toilet seat and bidet. Unique community room with piano, drum set, jukebox, games, books, large table and fireplace in the middle of the room. Lots of windows with view of outdoors. Beautiful outdoor décor with firepit area. Woods in the back for hiking. Nothing within walking distance otherwise, but many options not too far away in Ithaca. Hostess/owner was very friendly. She lit a fire for us in the fireplace in the evening. Made to order breakfast in the community room was very enjoyable.

My husband and I drove up to the finger lakes area for my aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary. Finding this gem of a place ensured we had the perfect romantic getaway in the midst of a whole lot of family time. We stayed in Suite 119 and I believe we had the whole compound to ourselves. The rates were extremely reasonable and they had everything we could possibly want set up for us in the Wish Room-coffee, tea, hot chocolate, wine, almond milk, snacks, waffle makers, s'mores fixings,etc. My husband and I both loved the room from the awesome art to the fireplace to the huge soaking tub and shower. We both wanted to move in permanently! Vicki made it incredibly easy to order breakfast in the morning, which was made to order, and she even offered to bring it to us in our room. We are definitely coming back next time we visit family and we only wish we could have stayed longer

I can’t say enough good things. The rooms were absolutely stunning, the grounds are beautiful and the staff and owner are so accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure our weekend stay was perfect. They are dog friendly, and we had a fabulous time. You won’t find a place quite like this, the experience is one of a kind.

We spent 1 night to attend a family wedding. There were 3 couples and we were able to have adjoining rooms. The hospitality is exceptional. The owner is accommodating and at your service. The accommodations are decorated in one of a kind arts and crafts that are high end. Rooms have so much room, it was peaceful and quiet. There's a building with a center fireplace for gatherings and relaxing together. The grounds are beautiful gardens and statues. I can't say enough about this place other than I would return...oh yeah, the cost is comparable and better than Ithaca hotels.

My husband and I loved this property! We spent two nights here for our anniversary. We stayed in the finger lakes room, which actually has 2 beds (a full and a queen), so it’s pretty ideal if you’re planning on staying with a kiddo or want to bring a friend. When we stay next time, we will choose staying at Suite 119 as I believe this room has a hot tub. The property is so interesting and artistic, it really does feel like you’re in a Tolkien fairy tale! You won’t regret staying here.
