Surrounded by trees and the sound of Six Mile Creek, and a 7 minute walk from the Commons. This apt is in a hidden paradise in Ithaca. 1920s house with lots of character. Custom woodwork. Equipped for long and short stays. Walk to Cornell in 25 min.

The space
Everyone that has ever taken a walk to 1st dam knows the glory of Giles St, and many remember this house in particular. The views and backyard are stunning. The custom woodwork and small touches in the Urban Cabin showcase the history of the area. It's a special place all around.

Guest access
You'll have access to the big back porch and yard overlooking the creek. Sometimes we hang out in the yard and use the staircase down to the backyard. The back porch is all yours.

Other things to note
People who are not taller than 6'1" enjoy the shower more.

If you take a left on the street when you leave the house you can walk to the wildflower preserve and first dam in less than 10 minutes. It is really beautiful. You can see first dam from the bridge or take the steep path to the left before you reach the bridge. There is a big gate, but it is public. Bring a camera and wear good shoes. The wildflower preserve is a nice walk in the woods. Cross over the bridge and take a right down a paved hill.

If you take a right on the street when you leave the house you can cross over the footbridge and go downhill on E State St to get to the Commons. It is quieter not to take the bridge. You can just walk right down Giles / Hudson Street and take a right at the end.

If you're going to Cornell, our favorite path is over the footbridge, straight (slight left) on Ferris Place, at the end of Ferris Place go a little downhill to the traffic light on the intersection of Stewart Ave and E State Street. Cross over to Stewart Ave and walk about 5 minutes until you see Campus Road going uphill to your right. Cross over onto Campus Road and head uphill. Take the path on Libe Slope by the 350 year old oak tree. There's a photo of it in the Urban Cabin. It is a special tree. Sage Chapel is beautiful (see if the crypt is open in the back near the grand pipe organ), as well as the pitched tiles on the roof of Olin Library (take the stairs to the left of the library entrance and toss rocks on them to make music), the AD White reading room in Uris Library (just ask the person at the desk when you enter). Cornell is a great place to walk around. Go all the way to the Ag Quad to eat at Manndible in Mann Library and get a feel for the whole campus.

Favorite happy hour: Viva Taqueria (M-F 4-6pm, $2 drafts and an outstanding tequila selection)

Favorite place to have a fancy cocktail: The Argos (closes at 10pm)

Favorite places to have a fancy meal: Mia's (Asian fusion on the Commons), Just a Taste (tapas just off the Commons) and Gola Osteria (classy Italian right across the footbridge. Take a right up the cobblestone path, and get buzzed in at the doors of the building nearest to the big fish statue)

Favorite places for BYOB dining: Sticky Rice (closed on Mondays and only open for dinner), Tamarind (far if you're walking)

Favorite places to shake our booties late night: Lot 10 (on the far end of the Commons), and The Range (on the Commons).

Favorite place to get coffee: Ithaca Coffee Company (7 min walk, also has delicious beer on tap).

Unique places to have tea and watch the locals: Oasis Co-op (just off the Commons)

Favorite places for cheaper meals: Gorgers (messy flat bread sandwiches), Asia Cuisine (sushi, Korean, delicious), Viva Taqueria (best after a couple margaritas), Four Seasons (Korean in Collegetown), Waffle Frolic (on the Commons. Paninis! Yum!)

Brunch spots: The Carriage House (10 min walk), Northstar (lovely 25 min walk through Fall Creek), Purity Ice Cream (far if you're walking, but they even have tofu scramble with kale), Cafe Dewitt (just off the Commons), Ithaca Bakery (their coffee's not great, but their sandwiches are delicious)
