We live on a quiet 23 acres with abundant birdlife. Massages can be arranged with Maria, a licensed massage therapist. Beautiful, relaxed setting, comfortable double bed. Great for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. LGBT friendly. Fall in the Finger Lakes is exceptional: amazing foliage, vineyards, apple orchards, plenty of great restaurants and brew-pubs.
