Secluded weekend getaway
We had a very nice stay at the Village-Farmhouse, which is a secluded rustic cabin that used to be a hunting lodge, equipped with basic amenities including a hand washing station and hand sanitizer. The propane four-top stove was perfect for meals we made and easy to use. Joan and Leo were very accommodating and the site was well maintained. Like it says in the listing the site is about a 10-15 minute hike uphill from parking spot. That being said Joan and Leo met us at the parking spot and drove our cooler and other heavy gear to the site so we didn't have to lug everything up. Their property is large and has opportunity for hiking and they provide detailed maps. Trails are not blazed but we had no trouble finding our way around, their property is also adjacent to a wildlife reserve, very beautiful! The site was only a 20 minute drive to Ithaca. It was a beautiful, secluded stay and Joan and Leo were easy to reach and communicative the entire time. We had a fantastic visit.
Joan and Leo were excellent, communicative, and super super helpful during our entire time there. The cabin was wonderful and on acres of private property so felt free to let loose. Highly highly recommend!
