No, I'm not looking for a hand-out. I would just like your opinions.
I've been searching for accomodations for our first-time one-week stay in Ithaca.
I've come upon two places that look affordable for us.
The first one is a neat and unusual yurt in a meadow. It's modern and includes a loft with a star-light view for my 12 yo daughter. It has a small pond and lovely flower gardens. It's about 12 miles south of Ithaca.
The second is right on the lake. It's a cottage that was built in 2005 and recently renovated so it looks brand new and modern. It has a wrap-around wood deck and a dock into the lake. It has two bedrooms which will work for my husband, myself, and our 12 yo duaghter. It's about a 25 minute drive into Ithaca.
They are both priced within $100 of each other, so cost is not an issue.
Neither is the drive because we will be doing a lot of driving to state parks and other sites around the area.
I'm leaning towards the lake cottage because I LOVE the water, but I've never even heard of a Yurt until I found this place online.
Any experience or opionions or suggestions are welcomed.
Thanks in advance.
