About this listing

We welcome you to enjoy our private, bright, modern studio with lake views. The space has its own driveway, entrance, a private stone patio with gardens, and wonderful views.
The space is set up like a mini private apartment. Perfect for a peaceful get away. We are minutes from downtown, Universities and all that Ithaca has to offer.

The space

Our spacious, light filled studio apartment has high ceilings with a fan, a comfortable queen bed, and a pull out queen IKEA sleeper couch. The kitchenette has a full fridge, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, sink and all basic dishware needed. Guests have access to their private full bath just outside studio door in hallway. There is a locked door that separates the hallway of studio from our kitchen and private living area.
There is fast WIFI and basic cable television and a CD player. We also have apple TV. Guests can also enjoy a private stone patio with gardens and lake views through sliding glass doors.
I will always have coffee, tea and juices available. I leave gift baskets with goodies as well.
For longer stays I will consider guests using the washer/dryer that is directly across from bathroom in hallway.
Extra blankets, towels, and linens are located in standing closet.
Guests have their own Air conditioning and heat control unit in studio for personal comfort.
There is a large dining table with chairs for eating. Two comfortable IKEA lounge chairs are also in the room.
The space is very private and peaceful. We are located minutes from downtown and easy access to Universities, wineries, and all that the area has to offer.
The studio is perfect for longer stays as well. If you are in town for business, Cornell events etc. then this is a perfect place to settle in for an extended stay.
We will also consider families with small children to stay with us. We say a 3 person maximum. However, if you have two small children we can most likely accommodate you.
We look forward to having you!

Guest access

I enjoy, and will most likely be able to meet guests when they arrive to show them around. However, If I can't be available I will contact guests to make arrangements to access studio.
The studio is your private space. We respect this with all of our guests.

Interaction with guests

We are excited to welcome you to our home! We love meeting new people and are always up for good conversation. However, we respect alone time and privacy of all guests.
I have many great recommendations for places to eat, hike, wonderful wineries etc. Please see our guide book in our airbandb profile or ask. I love to share.
'****I also leave a printed guidebook and instruction manual for studio on the dining table. This contains take out menus etc.
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible in our home! Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to make your stay more enjoyable.

Other things to note

We have a friendly kitty named Pepper. I do like guests to be aware of her in case of severe allergies.
She is never allowed in the studio.

Clean, comfortable, and spacious studio. Only a very short ride down into Ithaca, and great proximity to the lake(s). Tiana was great. Super accommodating to our late arrival time, with the separated entry to studio making it extra easy. Would totally recommend staying here! - Therese

Wonderful stay! The studio is immaculate, the view is beautiful and Tiana and Shane's hospitality made us feel so welcome, well taken care of and right at home - including delicious home-made granola. I highly recommend a stay with Tiana and family!

Tiana's studio is large, comfortable and well equipped with a wonderful view of the lake. After a long drive Tiana was very welcoming and checking in and out was easy. She supplied coffee, tea, milk and home made granola for breakfast and a folder with information on great places to eat and visit in Ithaca. I would highly recommend it.

Tiana was very welcoming, and very helpful and considerate. She stocked the refrigerator with a few well chosen items, so we had no need to go searching for basics. And she supplied some nice snacks. The decor is very nice and the lake view is attractive, especially since the leaves were turning color. The studio is well equipped and comfortable. Easy to get to downtown Ithaca or a waterfall hike or a winery.

Tiana is a great host! She promptly provided all the information we would need to get settled upon arrival. She also left a detailed notebook explaining the particulars of daily life including amenities, technology as well as popular restaurants and sightseeing destinations. Although we did not have the opportunity to meet Tiana in person, her beautiful apartment conveyed her desire to provide a superior experience for her guests. The suburban location is quiet and restful. At the same time, it is very convenient for exploring Ithaca and the surrounding area. Tiana was in contact throughout our visit and was available if we had had any questions. The apartment itself is wonderful. We loved the open floor plan, contemporary decor and artwork. My husband and I found the queen bed pictured very comfortable and our adult daughter slept well in the queen sofa bed. Tiana left coffee, creamer and oj for us, as well as some snacks. So thoughtful! The view of the Lake is such a bonus! Lovely to wake to a pretty view! All in all, we had a wonderful stay at Tiana's studio. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for accommodations in Ithaca! Without question, we would love to stay with Tiana again! Thank you for a super experience!
