Situated feet from the inlet (at starting point for Cornell and IC crew regattas), my home radiates tranquility and ease. It is truly a gem for those seeking to celebrate and rejuvenate. I typically host guests between Fridays after five thirty to Tuesday mornings at ten am.

The space
The house abuts the inlet where Cornell and IC crew teams begin their races, with two decks and a flagstone patio (with firepit). The water is visible from two of the three bedrooms (each with a real bed), as well as from living room, dining room and kitchen. With prior conversation, two kayaks and a rowing board are available for guests' use. Paddle to the Ithaca Farmer's Market, or to the Boat House for dinner. Sit and gaze at the lapping water from almost every room. Indoor spaces allow group and intimate conversations, ... being both spacious enough to accommodate eight to gather in the living room, and three or four in the sitting alcove. With three full bathrooms, there is plenty of space for everyone to primp for graduations, or to clean up after a day of hiking and biking.

Where you’ll be

Ithaca, New York, United States

The Inlet is a narrow strip of water that was created to prevent flooding, and has become a recreational byway. My home is a short walk from the paved recreational trail that goes north into Cass Park, where the Hangar Theatre, city skating rink and swimming pool, tennis courts, marina, ball fields and meadows overlooking Cayuga Lake are all located. The local food cooperative market, GreenStar, and Wegmans are a 5 minute drive away. The Ithaca Commons is 1.4 miles away and Cornell's campus is a ten minute drive, as is the shopping mall in Lansing, NY.

I am a both home body and an inveterate explorer. Having lived and traveled abroad, I far prefer to spend time in new places that give me access to how residents in locales live than to stay in box hotels. Over the next decade, I am cycling the Atlantic Route from Norway to Portugal, along Atlantic Coast of Europe. In offering up my home, I am opening an opportunity to guests to explore Ithaca and the Finger Lakes, and to join loved ones to celebrate graduations and reunions at the local colleges. I adore children, books, laughter, kindness and am immensely curious. While not a motto, I do believe that until all children have adequate food and shelter, we need to be very circumspect in how we use resources. A portion of every AirBnB stay goes to Feed The Children or to support local resources for youth seeking permanent homes.

During your stay

I typically greet guests and then am out of town during their stays. To ensure that everything goes smoothly, there are detailed instructions on using the custom designed (and easy to use) gas fireplace, televisions, Nest thermostat to control heating and air conditioning, ceiling fans, and Sonos sound system. If anything does go awry, I always set it up so that a friend is available to step in to resolve unexpected glitches (of which, to date, there have been none.)
