Cute house from 1900 with modern furniture, cozy insulation job, everything you need... owner is scarce (he works too much) and you are just a few blocks from downtown and all the colleges Ithaca is known for. Cafe, bus, grocery all w/in one block.
Free parking on premises
I work full-time (and then some) at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. I often spend weekends in Rochester with my girlfriend and so you might end up with a whole house to yourself if you stay at my place during the weekend.
