Description

Comfortably furnished, sun-filled 4 bedroom house (sleeps 7 on 2 queen beds & 1 twin upstairs; queen sofa bed on the main floor) with two bathrooms, a fully-equipped remodeled kitchen with brand new appliances, formal dining room seating 6, wood stove in the huge living room, wrap-around porch and two enclosed porches, with the sights and sounds of Fall Creek from most rooms and all three porches. The house is a former creamery - a picture hangs in the dining room of a horse-drawn milk wagon parked in front, circa 1900.

House is located on 8 acres along Fall Creek... Lots of woodlands to explore. Approx 3 miles from Sapsucker Woods (Cornell Lab of Ornithology) and Ithaca Airport. Window air conditioners in three rooms in summer, and wood stove & hot-water heating during the winter months.

We are really serious about the fact that the house sleeps 7 max. Large screen TV/DVD player with DirecTV. Wireless network available. Sheets, towels and basic supplies provided. Professionally cleaned and maintained. On the bus line to Cornell and downtown Ithaca.

The creamery sits in the front of 8 acres on both sides of Fall Creek where it makes a 90-degree turn in the little hamlet of Etna. Five miles downstream Fall Creek passes through Forest Home and Cornell University and becomes Ithaca Falls. There is a house right across the street and a house next door - the creek and protected Finger Lakes Land Trust are your neighbors on the other two sides.

The partially enclosed wrap around porch with views of the creek and back yard is a favorite year-round spot for us and our guests. The Etna post office is a couple of hundred yards up the road - a great walk with your dog, who will be treated with a biscuit upon entrance. The road is very lightly traveled by cars, but bike and foot travel is frequent.

You can put your kayak or fishing rod in the water from the property. Water levels fluctuate during the year, but there is always moving water and wildlife to be enjoyed. Sapsucker Woods, the Ithaca airport, Cornell University, a brewery, restaurants and shopping are all within a 10-mile radius, yet you really feel like you are out in the country when you are at the creamery. There is off-road parking for 4 cars right next to the house and the TCAT bus to Cornell and downtown Ithaca goes right by the house. Rental cars are available at the airport which is less than 5 miles away.

Additional Property Information

There are three steps up to the first floor. The stairway to the 2nd floor has approx 10 steps, a landing then 4 more steps. There is a washer/dryer in basement. The basement is not full height and not suitable for children to play in.

A single dog will be considered. Security deposit and/or fee may be required. Dogs are not allowed on any furniture and must be on a leash at all times outside and picked up after.

We do have wireless internet service. The house does NOT have a 'landline' phone. The area gets good cell phone connections, and this has been adequate for the owners (we use AT&T).

About the Owner

About Michael Hall and Patricia Krenzke
My wife and I live in Baltimore and plan on retiring to the creamery in around 10 years. We had no connection to the Finger Lakes until we traveled through on our way to Canada and we both fell in love with the area. We call it 'Drinking the Kool Aid' and countless others have suffered the same fate as we did. Two years later we bought the house and have spent the last eight years furnishing it and spending vacations there and enjoying all there is to do in the area.

Michael and Patricia purchased this Farmhouse in 2008

Why Michael and Patricia chose Ithaca:
Beautiful views, easy access to the water, birds, and wildlife abound, house and property full of history, close to Ithaca but still 'away from it all'

What makes this Farmhouse unique?
You will immediately feel 'at home'.
Everyone raves about the wrap-around porch surrounded by a huge old maple tree with views of the creek.

A picture hangs in the dining room of the house when it served as a creamery with a horse-drawn wagon carrying milk cans pulled up in front of the house CA 1900.

A wonderful, peaceful oasis

The house has a charming, farmhouse feel and is remarkably spacious. The outside wrap-around porch is wonderful, and the grounds are beautiful and there is a ton of outside space. We grilled outside and ate at the picnic table on the grounds near the creek; we watched the bunnies, chipmunks, squirrels and birds (and once, deer) from the porch every morning; and we played family soccer in the field. It was very close to everything Ithaca has to offer, and really easy to get to. A perfect stay!

Lovely Family vacation

Beautiful location! My children had lots of fun in the creek. The house is charming, clean and well kept. Alwyn the caretaker is friendly and very responsive to communications. Keep in mind no lawn furniture if you want to do outdoor meals but we had family near by bring folding table and chairs and it was lovely.

Comfortable home in a beautiful area

We spent a long weekend at Pat and Mike's property. The home is huge and very comfortable. They have everything you need (and then some) - the baskets of shampoos, conditioners and lotions was an extra nice treat, as were the sodas and wine in the fridge. Very relaxing time catching up with family in beautiful surroundings. Hope to go back again!

Ithaca House

We found the house to be very cozy and comfortable. It had ample basic supplies and we were pleased with our choice. We would definitely recommend this property and stay there again.

Great for family with kids and dog

My first impression of the house is that it was much larger than I anticipated from viewing the listing. My three young children and dog loved playing in the creek and running around the backyard. It was more expensive than a hotel but we enjoyed the space to spread out in the house, making our own meals and the outdoors experience that we never would have had in a hotel. As described it is a creaky old house with sulfur-smelling water and we appreciated the Brita pitcher and bottled water that was provided. We would definitely stay at the Creamery if we visit Ithaca again.
