Joanna & Art MORE about Owl Moon Cottage: Newly built in 2016, the cottage is wheelchair accessible and also family-friendly, small but comfortable and full of light. The interior space is 345 square feet with an additional loft area of 120 square feet. A spacious deck (600 square feet) wraps around the cottage on 3 sides, with a wheelchair ramp up the 4th side. The open space design features: * Fully equipped kitchen with handcrafted cherry cabinets, apartment-sized refrigerator and freezer, full-sized oven and electric range. * Accessible tiled bathroom with tub and shower. * Sleeping alcove with luxurious Queen bed * Two spacious window seats with high-density foam cushions, which can serve as beds for two children or teens. * Loft area with two Twin Extra Long beds, which can be moved together to create a King size bed. Access to the loft can be blocked if guests or hosts have safety concerns. * Cathedral ceiling, with large windows facing east and south * Gorgeous hand-finished hardwood floor, made from locally harvested ash. Guest Access You have the cottage entirely to yourselves, including the surrounding yard and garden. There are two parking spaces for your use. You may use the laundry machines in the main house as needed. Please do not visit the livestock without one of us, and be sure to keep children away from the electric fence surrounding the pasture. Interaction with Hosts We're happy to interact with you as much or as little as you desire. The cottage is designed to maximize your privacy, but at least one of us is available at all times if you need assistance or information. Feel free to ask for a tour of our homestead, and suggestions for our favorite restaurants, hiking trails and other attractions. We do provide an information packet in the cottage in case you prefer to be left alone. Your surroundings Owl Moon Cottage is located literally within the boundaries of Robert H. Treman State Park, From your doorstep it is an easy one mile walk to Lucifer Falls, one of the most spectacular and most-visited gorge waterfalls in the Finger Lakes. The Finger Lakes Trail runs just a few hundred yards from the cottage, on its route from the NY-Pennsylvania border to the Catskills. At the same time, we're only an 8 mile drive to the vibrant heart of downtown Ithaca, 10 miles to the Cornell University campus, and 10 miles to Ithaca College. Our road is a little-traveled, unpaved lane that runs through Upper Treman Park just above the entrance to Lucifer Falls. It's extremely quiet except for the abundant songbirds, peepers, owls, and occasional coyotes and barking dogs. There are only a handful of homes nearby, most of them invisible from the road. No street lights, hardly any traffic, just the occasional hiker coming off the Finger Lakes Trail. Getting Around Since we're off the beaten track, you will need a car to get around and see other sights in the Ithaca and Finger Lakes area. However, if you just want to stay put in the cottage (and enjoy the many gorgeous hikes you can take from your front door) let us know. We may be able to provide transportation to and from the bus station or airport. Other Things to Note Let us know if you or your children are interested in learning about gardening, raising animals, putting up veggies for the winter, making cheese, and other basic skills. We'd be glad to include you in some of our homesteading activities. Many hands make light work! The loft area is available for your use, but at your own risk. Although the ladder is steady and the railings are solid, there is still a danger of children or adults falling and suffering serious injury. Access to the loft will be blocked if guests or hosts have concerns about safety/liability. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: Tompkins County Hotel Tax #423More
