Tenwood Lodge is a family-oriented Vacation Home which also offers Bed and Breakfast by the room or suite when the whole home is not rented out. We built Tenwood Lodge with 10 different woods and designed it with an architect duo to optimize views of our scenic secluded valley, located just 12 minutes from downtown Ithaca, NY. We regularly see (deer, wild turkey, rabbits, chipmunks, geese, ducks) and hear (coyote, owls) nearby wildlife. The distance from light pollution makes stargazing on clear nights an astronomer's delight.
Built to gather the family, we encourage you to bring your family to re-connect to each other for a multi-generational family reunion. We're purposely not hooked up to TV (only a dvd/tv combo), but we do have good wifi. We prefer to spend our time together on the porch with a cup of locally roasted coffee in the morning or a Finger Lakes Riesling in the afternoon. Our firepit is available also for additional relaxation. Winters are cozy by the woodstove, and some rooms have lovely radiant floors.
When you're ready, we're under 15 minutes from 2 Finger Lakes state parks that are "gorges" and less than 30 minutes from 2 wineries and the lake.
