3-Bdrm Tree House in Town available January – March, 2024 with flexibility (Kid-friendly)

This adorable private house is perched up in the trees across the street from Six Mile Creek. It’s only a 10 min walk to the downtown Ithaca Commons restaurants and playground, but you are in the woods. Walk to Cornell or Ithaca College in 24 min. Enjoy beautiful views through all the windows, and hopefully you will spot the family of deer who live in the back. Three private bedrooms sleep 6 comfortably. The bathroom has a full tub.

Available to rent January – March, 2024. Minimum 2 months lease.

With flexibility with the end and start dates from January 1 – March 31, and also the possibility to stay into April or mid-May if it is a great fit.

Kid-friendly. Sorry no dogs. Our little daughter has allergies.

This house has hosted many happy guests on AirBnb the past few years: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/21584325?guests=1&adults=1&s=67&unique_share_id=4e4763bb-d773-47be-8663-c35575f74dd3

You will need to climb stairs to enter the house, and inside the house the living space is all on one level. There is a front porch that gets morning sun, a stone patio off of the basement, and a deck off of the kitchen that gets afternoon sun. 

There is free 24 hour street parking nearby. It would be hard to fit 2 large vehicles in the driveway, but 1 can fit easily or 2 small vehicles can fit with careful parking.

The long open stretch of wood floors make it a great space for yoga. There are 4 yoga mats there waiting for you. There’s a high-end robot vacuum that cleans the floors each day, a large fridge, and a dishwasher. 

The whole place is yours, including the 2 car driveway and 2 outdoor patios. 

Washer and dryer are right in the basement. 

The house comes fully furnished. The 1st bedroom has a full size bed and crib and desk, 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed, dresser, and his and hers closets. 3rd bedroom has its own electric baseboard heat and has a queen size bed, desk, armoire and wall-mounted workout equipment (tested up to 150 pounds).  All three bedrooms have room darkening shades. Even though the house is super close to downtown, the house feels so private that we leave most of the window shades open so we can enjoy seeing the trees all around. 

Kitchen is fully equipped for people who love to cook. Large gas stove is nestled in a granite island overlooking the 2 living rooms. Dining area opens to the kitchen. 

Toys for children 1-7 years old are available upon request. The house is a 9 minute walk from the playground at South Hill Elementary School and the South Hill Recreation Trail. The house can easily be set up for kids to enjoy as well as adults. 

Renter is responsible for snow removal. There are snow shovels already in the house.
