Romantic views of horses, farmland , sunsets, rolling hills. This happy little camper is a 1965 sunflower colored Shasta Loflyte~with wings! Set on the top of my 10 acre farmland situated in the hills of Ithaca, NY! 

 Tucked under the treelined hedgerow of my horse pasture, the exquisite diversity of shades from deciduous and evergreen trees surround you. Outdoor chairs and a chaise lounge, stone lined campfire spot and eating area make this a very sweet location to enjoy you Ithaca stay. 

Coffee and breakfast are only a short drive away -or-  if you let me know ahead of time- request one of my famous full farm fresh breakfasts well known by former guests here at Amazing Grace Bed and Breakfast . We serve wild, homegrown and local foods cooked with love and a creative spirit.   

Just spending time on the property is a treat all its own, but Ithaca has an endless supply of exciting possibilities, from wine touring to waterfalls, incredible craft shops, the Cornell Campus and BellTower concerts. Live music somewhere in town is available almost every night of the week. Our farmers market is spectacular, with the option of a boat tour 'round beautiful Cayuga Lake. 

Each camp area has an Ithaca Guide Book in it and your Hostess, likely me, Alicia, can give you ample examples of ways to fill your vacation time. I also offer wildcrafting tours and cooking lessons if you let me know ahead of time - and ocasionally campfire sing-a-long evenings! I look forward to hosting you!

The Happy Camper was beyond perfect for my solo getaway to the Finger Lakes! Alicia was an excellent host, easy to communicate with and made my experience one of a kind. The camper itself is adorable, and I felt comfortable and safe with all the extra precautions taken due to Covid. I’m so thankful I booked it and will be back whenever I can. Highly recommended for solo travelers or couples, you’ll have the best time! Thanks Alicia!

Oh my goodness, where do we start? This was our first Hipcamp experience and even if any others we book are half as good as this experience and the hospitality we experienced at Alicia’s property we’d be very happy! This was the ultimate escape from the city we needed camping under the stars with a campfire under the stars with views of the forest and farm with horses! We highly recommend paying extra for the breakfast experience at least one morning. Alicia also gave great recommendations for what to do nearby, and there’s so much! The camper bed was so cozy with anything you’ll need while camping! We will look into returning again next season!

This experience was simply amazing. The place is so adorable, and the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. My wife and I couldn’t have enjoyed our stay anymore.

Our host Alicia exceeded all of our expectations and just made us feel right at home. Her breakfast was divine and her property is stunning. We loved the camper we slept in it was so cozy.

Alicia was so helpful with information and every recommendation was perfect.

We enjoyed making dinner on the campfire and catching the stars every night we were there.

Absolutely recommend!

We really loved staying in alicia's camper!! It was really comfortable, clean, and secluded, and in such a beautiful setting. Alicia was super helpful with bringing us firewood and giving us recommendations for places to go hiking, restaurants, etc. The campsite has everything you need, with a nice fire pit, a spot for washing dishes, a hand washing station next to the outhouse, and lots of jugs of drinking water. We definitely plan on coming back next time we are in the area!
