Table Of Contents
A Slice of Home Bed and Breakfast is located in a quiet, romantic, rural setting, 15 minutes from Ithaca, NY and 30 minutes from Watkins Glen, NY, close to many events, sites, and wonderful restaurants that this area has to offer. We are located within walking distance of the new Hollybrook Country Club, which is open to the public. We are a short distance to Cornell University and Ithaca College, Corning Museum of Glass and four New York State Parks surrounded by wineries, antique shops, and cross country skiing and bicycle trails. Our location is bicycle friendly too! We specialize in daily self-tour planning. We'll help you to see the sites: the best wineries, restaurants, antique shops, parks, waterfalls and hiking areas! (Or contact Mark at Summit to Stream Tours to choose from a variety of winery and outdoor tours.) We even have a new driving range about 1 mile away from our B&B, open from sunup to sundown - bring your own clubs!
Enjoy a scrumptious country-style breakfast (You won't need lunch!) in the country atmosphere of our farmhouse, built in 1840 in the Italianate style. Breakfast will be served to meet your morning schedule. Our spotless rooms have private baths and attractive furnishings. We are open all year, air conditioned, with a television in each room. A hot tub is available for all guests lodging with us. Golfing is within walking distance. We now have wireless Internet for our guests.
Area maps are furnished for self-guided tours in order to help our guests see the most important sites, such as Taughannock Falls, which is higher than Niagara Falls, and Watkins Glen with its famous gorge. Enjoy Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake Wine Trails and dine at the best area restaurants. The new Tioga Downs racetrack with harness racing and video gaming is a short drive from our B&B. Open every day, racing continues until mid-September, and the casino is open all year. For the sports enthusiast we can offer suggestions on where to hike, swim, photograph waterfalls, and bike. Cross country ski trails begin right off our back porch! We have some of the best hunting and fishing in the country.
