About Sanctuary in the woods
Bob and I have 10 forested secluded beautiful hilly acres 10 miles from Ithaca, NY. We have built a camp with a lean to shelter completely dry and covered with a double bed platform inside to put your sleeping bags on. Also there is a teepee that can sleep a few. The campfire has a grill and there are two homemade benches around it. Ther is a swing and seesaw at the site as well. There is access to our well water and free firewood available. Come enjoy. It is very quiet. We are very close to Connecticut Hill Park, Arnot Forest, and both Treman and Buttermilk State Park which has swimming. Watkins Glen State Park is half an hour away. We are between two finger lakes, Cayuga and Seneca. As much firewood as your u need is provided so don't worry about buying or bringing firewood. It is on us

The vibe at Sanctuary in the woods
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
What a unique property Bob and Pam have created in their Sanctuary in the Woods! We were excited to stay here before we knew anything about the property, mainly because it is close to Ithaca, and were touring the state parks and waterfalls in the area. We were even more excited to explore the woodland trails, play around on the homemade playground equipment, and hang out in the tipi.
There's plenty of room to roam in these woods, plus a pond to swim in. Bob has built a swing in the trees and even a seesaw to help you feel like a kid again. There's a tipi for sleeping or hanging out, plus an open lean-to with a bed. We chose to set up our own tent and use the lean-to for storing our gear. We only wish we had brought our kids - this is a great camp for families!
