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 space

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.

Guest access

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.

Interaction with guests

I live right next door to the Carriage House and will be able, usually at a moments notice, to respond to any requests you might have.

Other things to note

Coffee and tea will be available. If you need something else, please let me know ahead of time. There is no laundry facility on site, but there is a Laundromat nearby with a wash and fold service. There is an off-street parking area with space for two cars.

Overlook House is a cute and comfortable place that is very close to Cornell campus. It is very well maintained, neat, clean and beautiful. The host is warm and very helpful. She ensured that our stay was comfortable and we had everything we needed. She even helped us get around the place when we were struggling with transport. I would definitely recommend it to others.

A really great and cozy space. I went back to visit Cornell and the location was quiet yet close to everything. The home is beautiful and very thoughtfully done.

This is a beautiful Carriage House located in easy reach to both Cornell and Ithaca Colleges. The house is beautifully decorated, with modern appliances, heating and air. All the kitchens items necessary to a comfortable stay were provided. The parking was easy and could handle two cars. Our party of three had a relaxing, enjoyable time coming home to this after our wine tastings. Thanks for this experience.
