Flora Farms House
on a 100-Acre Orchard & Flower Farm
The largest of our three properties, this 4-bedroom, 3-bath, 3,200-square-foot house with farm and mountain views is situated 8 miles southwest of Ithaca, close to both Cornell University and Ithaca College. Within a 20-mile radius you’ll find beautiful gorges, Cayuga and Seneca Lakes, and many wineries. The kitchen is open to the dining room and living room, which leads to a deck, a private fenced yard, and gardens. Filled with windows, the spacious living room has gorgeous farm views and overlooks our swimming pool and cottage. The pool is available for use by the renters of the house, the cottage, and farm residents.

There is public transportation located approximately 2 miles away in Newfield Center. The farmhouse is 16 minutes (8.9 miles) to Cornell University and 16 minutes (8.7 miles) to Ithaca College. You’ll want a car to get around.
In addition to the pool and the building (or buildings) they have rented, guests have access to 100 acres of trails, streams, and orchards and may view the flower fields (picking only with permission) and farm animals. Guests will not have access to the large hay barn, creekside cabin, or the flower fields (without permission).
Interaction with Guests
Andy and Kimi will be on the farm maintaining the grounds or pool and are reachable by phone. We are very respectful of our guests’ time and space here. If both the house and the cottage have not been rented together, interaction with other guests or residents is possible, especially by the pool when in season. Our farm is a working farm, so you may come across the occasional gardener, workers picking flowers or tending to the orchards or preparing for the farmers market, or customers coming to pick up flowers.
We Create Fun
Our property is ideal for gatherings, family reunions, wellness retreats, etc. There are many flower fields, apple, cherry, and pear orchards (used by Eve’s Cidery to make their amazing cider) with wonderful trails to explore either by foot, bike, snowshoe, or cross-country ski. Flora Farms is close to all of the wondrous parks that our area is known for, Cayuga and Seneca Lake, the Finger Lakes Wine Trail, Cornell University, and Ithaca College. We have a very relaxed, beautifully designed, natural environment here that we hope you will come and enjoy.
*We can connect you with private chefs, yoga instruction, massage therapists, Ayurvedic consultation, florists, wine tasting and more. Just ask!
