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.
