One-of-a-kind Yurt Surrounded by Waterfalls

Family-friendly cottage in Newfield
Climbing Vine Cottage is a custom-designed yurt surrounded by gardens, orchards bird and butterflies near our home. The yurt features a fully equipped, eat-in kitchen (includes award winning, locally roasted coffee) with seating for 6. The bathroom is stocked with towels, local soap, shampoo, etc. Sleeping accommodations include a lovely master bedroom (queen size bed) with flat screen tv for dvds, fold out futon bed in the living room (full size) and two twin beds in the loft. In the winter months the yurt stays cozy with a high efficiency ductless mini-split. You can adjust the themostat but otherwise you don't have to do anything to enjoy a cool yurt in the summer and a cozy yurt in the winter! There's also a thermostat-controlled wood pellet stove (pellets are provided) for nights when you want a flickering fire. Summer stays cool with mini-split or just use fans and throw open the french doors. The stone patio offers outdoor dining, a gas grill and fire pit. The wildflower field, only steps away, connects to a nature preserve and Van Buskirk Gorge with many waterfalls. High speed wireless internet is also included.

Beautiful Cottage Seeks Ideal Guest: Comfortable, artfully designed, hand crafted yurt nestled into vibrant garden seeks visitors for memorable stay. If you like nature, hiking and gorge walks, if you are tired of cookie cutter hotel rooms or antique stuffed B & B's, if you want something unique and delightful let's get together for one night or many weeks! Hey, I know I'm just a 'luxury apartment in the round' but who says places can't have personality! Please write my caretaker and come visit me!

Talk About Kid Friendly!: Climbing Vine Cottage began as a playground and school for young gardeners. Small hands helped grow fruits, vegetables and flowers for their families and our local soup kitchen Loaves and Fishes. Children raised butterflies, caught frogs and identified bugs with the yurt as our indoor classroom. Children will be delighted to sit at the child's table for 4 and use the beading and drawing materials or play with the games and puzzles. There's a play kitchen, tea set and apron, plus baskets with legos, blocks and a well-stocked children's book shelf. Additionally you'll find kid-friendly-adaptive-devices like a step stool, potty seat, and low bench.

For adults without kids don't worry, when we know you're coming we place these materials out of the way, on shelves, etc.

Perfect for a Romantic Getaway: Climbing Vine Cottage makes it easy to find the time for each other. Cook together in a beautiful kitchen or get take out. Cozy up by the fire or climb in bed and watch a DVD. Better yet, climb up to the loft to watch the stars. Explore the forest and gorge in privacy surrounded by peace and beauty.
Rooms open to balconies or patios. Flat-screen televisions are featured in guestrooms. This Newfield cottage provides complimentary wireless Internet access. Accommodations all include kitchens. Bathrooms include showers.

Hidden Gem !
What a great unique experience the yurt was . It’s much bigger than the pictures show and there is totally room for an air mattress upstairs beyond the 2 beds. Michelle and family were awesome hosts . We loved finding newts and fossils right in the back yard on the property trials. My little one was obsessed with the chickens and fish and of course the raspberries. Also can’t beat fresh salads right from the garden lettuce:) we took lots of great day trips to gem mine in herkimer and blow glass in Corning . SO. MANY. WATERFALLS! Loved all of the local hiking and super cute towns . Would definitely recommend! Super comfortable bed in the master as well and we are bed snobs ;) thanks for a fabulous stay!

Fabulous spot!
We were two adults and three teens and all of us had a fabulous time! There was enough space for people to get some down time while also having enough room to gather together. And the gorge and creek were a big hit with the teens. All of us enjoyed the woods and general environment, especially our dog. It is a quick drive to the state parks, the lake and downtown Ithaca. Michelle was very warm and responsive and we felt very welcome at her family’s property. Can’t wait to come again!

Splendid yurt
We can't wait to return to the yurt! We had a lovely time! I snowed every day, we had some winds and yet the yurt stood and was warm and cozy as can be! Protected woods in the back of the property for some beautiful and adventuresome hiking (there's a very steep gorge nearby, be careful!). The property has 2 other rental buildings and the owners' home which were not in the photo, but everything and everyone is nice and quiet. Michelle was wonderful, and we bumped into her dad a few times in the woods. I love this place! Thank you for helping to bring up back to earth!

Charming and Peaceful
My husband and I recently stayed at the yurt with his parents and our 18 month old. The yurt was clean and cozy, and the pellet stove kept the yurt very warm and comfortable. We brought toys to keep our daughter entertained, but the property owner also had blocks, books, and even a little play kitchen inside, which was great. My husband and I were off the property most of the days hunting, but my in laws loved walking the area with our daughter and seeing the stars at night. Would definitely recommend.

Fun times. Great location
We cake here on a motorcycle adventure with friends to hike, chase waterfalls and taste wine. The yurt location was perfect. Everything in fact was great. If I were to have any complaint it was the beds. We are super spoiled with a comfy king at home, so sleeping was difficult for us as we just couldn’t get comfortable. This was in no way a reflection on the place itself. Just us in particular. I would recommend staying here in a heartbeat. It is an adorable place centrally located to many attractions.
