Stay in our cozy, heated and insulated, artsy bunkhouse. We're located on a quiet woodsy dead end street with tons of bird life and acres of nature to enjoy. Walking trails are right out the back gate! There is also frog pond and campfire pit to enjoy. Marshmallows provided. The bunkhouse is less than 2 miles to the center of Ithaca where there is plenty to do! including the taking advantage of the new bike share program and waterfront trails. Definitely come hungry, Ithaca has more restaurants per capita than NYC and LA.!! Were also just 12 min across town to Cornell University and Ithaca College and 5-20 minutes from numerous amazing waterfalls. The available half bathroom is in the main house, just seconds from the cabin and is open to use 24 hrs. The heated bunkhouse has 2 twin mattresses in the loft, and several blankets and pillows, but you need to BRING YOUR OWN SHEETS and pillow CASES as you wish. Firewood is $5 per fire, starters materials included, marshmallows are in the end table drawer! there are roasting sticks out by the fire pit. You can select the campfire wood option here or pay in cash in the cabin. Feel free to bring your own fire wood and pay nothing to enjoy a campfire. if you need any help starting a fire, we can help. We have a sweet fluffy orange cat who roams the property. His name is kitty kitty :) He's fearful of dogs, and is wary of visitors since they might be harboring one! If you have a pup with you, please keep them leashed at least around the main house and cabin. We are also fostering our adult daughter's very sweet dog Beya-- (pronounced Bay-yuh). She is the nicest person you'd hope to meet and although she may bark a little the first time you come in to use the bathroom she's just letting us know you have arrived- and will be very happy to have you greet her. She doesn't jump up, growl, or have any negative behavior with people other than getting underfoot in the kitchen!. There isn't a shower included in the stay unless you are here for multiple days and have spoken with us about it...but you can definitely wash up with hot water and soap, in the half bath --hand towel provided. The cabin has air conditioning for summer use So no worries about being too warm to sleep well. (and heat in the winter) The location is Beautiful in all seasons! Cross country skiing is possible in the winter but bring your own gear.. (we did not do a rink this year) If there's something else you need for your stay, just ask! We are pretty flexible and can probably help out.Stay in our cute, insulated, and artsy cabin, located on a quiet, woodsy dead end road with tons of bird life and acres of nature to enjoy.

Serene location & stay
This was our second time staying at the artsy bunkhouse and it was even better. Robert is so friendly and accommodating. He has great recommendations for local bites & hikes around town. We did 3 waterfall hikes while staying there. It was the perfect location and there’s so many more great hikes and things to do in Ithaca. Robert and his family are so kind , we absolutely adored their sweet pup. He even allowed us to do some camp dishes in their home. Such a peaceful and rewarding stay. We love that the location is pet friendly. The bunkhouse is cozy, full of beautiful unique art pieces that are pleasing for the eyes.

Inspiring experience
Exactly what we were looking for. A nice relaxed atmosphere, with ample space, inspiration, and comfort. My favorite part: I loved the pond frogs’ song and the stars reflected between the cattails, and the branches of the tall mother tree, starlight and firelight. Very sweet bunkhouse and good communication!
