Kids love hanging out in the clubhouse/loft area which has two twin beds, down comforters and a dome window for incredible star gazing. Expect to be delighted! Climbing Vine Cottage is only 12 minutes south of Ithaca but you can do and see a lot before you even get into your car. Explore the wild flower field or play ball on the game and party field. Walk a trail through the forest or hike down to the gorge to see ice carved waterfalls. You don't have to go far to experience the wonder of the Finger Lakes Region. Up the road you'll find great fruit picking and cider doughnuts at Little Tree Orchards or go two miles further and drive through Newfield's Historic Covered Bridge. Climbing Vine Cottage is the perfect spring board for day trips to the Grassroots Festival and the Ithaca Festival, the Wine Trail, our award winning Ithaca Farmer's Market, great hiking and biking, the beautiful Cayuga Lake, the Sciencenter, world famous gorges and waterfalls, Greek Peak, great dining, the Ithaca Commons and international events sponsored by Cornell and Ithaca College. Experience what makes our region unique! More

Interaction with guests
We live nearby and are available to help with anything you need! I'm happy to give a garden tour when you come and I can show you which things are ready to harvest in the garden and orchard--in the spring, summer and fall the hens are usually laying eggs so I can show you where and how to harvest them as well! I'm also happy to offer tips and advice for seeing and experiencing the best of this beautiful part of the world!
