This newly renovated, 1920 Carriage House in Cayuga Heights, is just north of the Cornell Campus - an excellent location that avoids the noise and congestion of Collegetown while allowing easy access to all that the area has to offer. Great for a couple's getaway, visiting faculty, parents of Cornell students, or those visiting relatives in the Ithaca area.
The Carriage House is two floors, so it is not handicapped accessible, nor child-friendly. The total space is about 1000 sqft, plus a large deck off the living area.
Upstairs, there are two sleeping areas and a full bath with marble countertop and floor. These sleeping areas are fairly private and separate, but there are no doors. A screen has recently been added for extra privacy on the main bedroom. Downstairs, there is a queen-sized sofa bed with memory foam mattress and 1/2 bath. There are enough beds (shared) for a maximum of 5 guests. The space has been designed, however, to give the most pleasant experience to those parties with 3 or fewer persons.
There is a full kitchen with high-end appliances, granite countertops, and copper range hood. For your comfort, ceiling fans are in both the bedroom and living area and all the windows are operable.
The kitchen is set up to be used. There is a induction cooktop, a 30" oven, a microwave, refrigerator freezer, and built-in dishwasher. Great for those staying for a longer visit. The dining area has seating for 4, and the deck has seating for 6. Cleaning supplies are available, including a vacuum cleaner.
