Come stay at the Homestead; a large, graceful, barn from the 1800's converted into a beautiful modern home complete with open beam ceilings and field stone walls. We are a B&B style lodging space very close to Ithaca, New York. The difference is we provide you with your private ground level six room 1000 square foot suite complete with full bath and kitchen and leave you to your privacy. We are located at 129 Ridgeway Road in Brooktondale, NY which is a very short drive south of Ithaca in Tompkins County, New York. We are the perfect destination for visiting Cornell University or Ithaca College parents or alumni, romantic getaways, nature enthusiasts leaf peepers and vacationers alike. This spot is very private and secure yet spacious and open with lots of light.

We are the perfect destination for visiting Cornell University or Ithaca College parents or alumni, romantic getaways, nature enthusiasts leaf peepers and vacationers alike. This spot is very private and secure yet spacious and open with lots of light. Located in the green rolling hills of the Finger lakes Region of Central NY, we are close to both Cornell and Ithaca College, Cayuga Lake and only twenty minutes from the community in Dryden. We are surrounded by forests and state-protected natural areas which is perfect for those wanting to get away from city life and breathe fresh air. We are close enough to all the shopping, state parks, hiking trails and college activity to make it a short drive but far enough away for privacy, security and a quiet night's sleep. Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and watch for the deer, fox, turkey and extensive bird population that is so abundant in this region. This large ground level apartment is the entire lower portion of the Homestead and includes an enclosed porch, private driveway with plenty of room for parking and a large yard. Russell and Deb, the hosts, live upstairs and are quickly available for anything that you might need. WiFi, DIRECTV, a complete furnished kitchen and private full bath are included. We have stocked the cupboards with pot and pans, dishes and glassware, etc. There is a full size refrigerator, electric range and oven, crock pot, toaster. The coffee and tea service is free with your stay. Contact us with your reservation if there is anything else we can stock for you in anticipation of your arrival. We provide coffee service and muffins, bagels or croissant along with orange juice and cream chees. The large private grass yard has a fire pit and cozy chairs for evening s'mores, evening stories and lots of great memories. The master bedroom is a serene and restful retreat with a California king size bed. The second bedroom comes with two extra long twin beds large enough for an adult to sleep comfortably. The living room and kitchen space are an open design and has a couch, rocking chairs and a large farm table capable of seating eight people. Imagine a sit down meal with family and friends and enjoy a wonderful food prepared by you in the well appointed kitchen. There is a small library for catching up on some reading along with a DVD player and video collection near the TV, a pile of board games and a fantastic chess board available for your use. In the winter months, ask us to light the wood stove for you for cozy warmth. You can sit around the stove and enjoy the fire while sipping hot cocoa. The entire space has access to the free WiFi available with the rental. Your driveway and entrance at ground level are private for your use only complete with plenty of space for parking. Ithaca, NY is just a short hop away and offers everything you can imagine such as waterfalls, fantastic rock formations and gorges, hiking trails, amazing food, farmer's markets, shopping for every taste, bird sanctuaries, etc etc! This space sleeps 4-5 adults comfortably and offers an entire floor of private living for less than it would cost to rent two rooms without a kitchen or stay at a B&B with less privacy. Save money by renting only once and prepare your meals in the wonderful kitchen. We also offer a weekly rate for those of your requiring an extended visit. The base rate ranges from $160-175 depending on season for the first four guests. Additional guests are between $25 and $50 per night for children and adults. More
