About the neighbourhood
This area is very DOG friendly: Most wineries, breweries and restaurants allow dogs on their terraces and leashed dogs are welcome in the State Parks except for the gorge trail at Watkins Glen State Park. For BIKERS there are 3 local scenic trails that we can highly recommend: the 9 mile Black Diamond Trail from Ithaca to Trumansbug. the 14 mile Catharine Valley Bike Trail from Watkins Glen to Horse Heads. the 7 mile Keuka Outlet Trail from Dresden on Cuyuga Lake to Penn Yan on Keuka Lake. Ithaca is loaded with restaurants and quaint shops There are about 100 wineries, breweries, cideries and distilleries in our area. For kayakers there are so many places to choose from! Cayuta Lake is just 5 miles from here. Kayaks can be rented locally
