Nestled in the glacially-carved hills just south of Ithaca, the rustic ambiance of this wooded camp greets you with the serenity and respite that only nature can provide. A great link to the outdoors and an opportunity to clear your mind, the land and associated off-grid cabin present the perfect place to unwind. An excellent writer’s retreat, hunting cabin, jumping-off point to the nearby Finger Lakes Trail, a spot of repose, or an intellectual exchange location where inspiration surrounds, this property has many desires. The cabin features one bedroom, a galley-style kitchen area, and a community room with a soul-warming custom-made wood stove and additional bunk space for overnight guests. A covered porch spans the front of the cabin overlooking the wooded valley below while providing a dry space for firewood. From Bruce Hill Rd, the elevation rises gradually to the property’s north and west boundaries. It is easily navigated and traversed thanks to a series of well-established and maintained logging roads. Serving as a hunting cabin to the current owners, they have experienced consistent year-over-year success, having taken several trophy-quality bucks from the property’s wooded expanse. The verdant stand of trees finds a well-established population of white and red oak with interspersed maple, locust, hickory, and white pine. Though you can find yourself lost in thought among the fresh air and forest setting of this adaptable acreage, amenities and conveniences aren’t far off, with Ithaca less than 10 miles away. In contrast, the country setting allows access to the additional recreational opportunities of the Finger Lakes Trail, Danby State Forest, Cayuga Lake, the Cayuga Inlet or Logan Hill, Ellis Hollow, and Lindsay-Parsons Biodiversity Preserve Preserves. Located on a season road, this property does not have road access throughout the winter months, and the cabin does not have running water or electric, so it is a true getaway for those who wish to find their own place of true peace and quiet.
