We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tenwood Lodge for Ithaca’s 2018 Graduation Weekend. Located near the school, it was easy for us to come and go from campus events. The house is roomy and incredibly comfortable – all three generations of family members slept well! The kitchen is well equipped and spacious! Wildlife is abundant and inches away from the house. We highly recommend Tenwood Lodge and would love to stay there again soon!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. It was the perfect set up for our family. It was wonderful to be able to have us all under one roof while we celebrated our brother’s wedding. It was a perfect weekend!

Thank you for a most wonderful way to celebrate our 2nd Anniversary! The jacuzzi was amazing and your hospitality was even more amazing! We felt quite at home and plan on stopping by some other time 🙂 I think we will have to get Ticket to Ride in the near future…
Still like newlyweds in early August 2017 (B&B guests)
What a marvelous home you have!!! We feel blessed to have been able to gather so many family and friends for our daughter’s senior voice recital at IC. This home was the perfect way for us to celebrate 4 1/2 years of our daughter’s education. Thank you for also attending her recital. I hope we will have the opportunity to vacation here again.
Oct 2016 - group stay -Long Island family
Loved the privacy and huge open space. Secluded, and private area for our son’s graduation. Plenty of space for huge parties, and outdoor cooking and campfires.
May 2016 - group stay -Extended Family Commencement Celebration
We collected family from Victoria, BC and Toronto, Ont (Canada), from Ethiopia (Africa), from Chicago, Massachusetts, Cairo, Riverside & Brewster (NY), and Connecticut. We loved relaxing on the porches and in the coolness inside, playing badminton, eating at the picnic tables and on the deck, walking the grounds to the pond, playing games in the living rooom, keyboard upstairs, enjoying each well-appointed bedroom – a great and open place that we loved returning to or starting from. Thanks for such a lovely, beautiful experience, the home and environment are perfect!
July 2017 - family reunion convergence
Many thanks for sharing your home with us on the weekend of our niece’s wedding. The space was wonderful for family to gather for wedding preps and a a peaceful place for the bride. We loved your welcoming hospitality, flexibility and attention to detail! We will definitely tell friends of this bit of heaven – just minutes from all that Ithaca has to offer!
Sept 2016 - Bride's Family gathering from Minnesota and Rochester for local wedding
Every summer our family, who is scattered across the country, gets together in the Finger Lakes region. As we grow, it’s been harder and harder to find a good place to stay.Tenwood Lodge surpassed previous experiences in every way. Kim was easy to communicate with; she and her husband live in a nearby barn so she was right there to answer any questions. However, they are also unobtrusive. The Lodge plus the Bunkhouse wing fit our 12 adults and 1 teenager perfectly. There were other smaller options for younger ones which we didn’t use. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen utensils, pots and pans, dishes, were plentiful and good quality. There’s even a very large pantry with tons of spices, condiments, and staples! I’m very picky about cleanliness and Tenwood was spotless on arrival. The owners recently added high-tech zoned a/c. Each room had its own thermostat which allowed us to be comfortable, especially at night. Our younger adults enjoyed the games in the game closet, but most of us just loved hanging out on the porch, which had beautiful, peaceful views. I could truly go on and on about Tenwood Lodge. I can only hope that our schedules line up so we can all come back next summer!
Paula D - July 2019 group stay - Vrbo review : PERFECT FOR MULTI-GENERATION REUNION
Kim and Russ are wonderful hosts: accommodating their beautiful home for family gatherings. It’s family friendly, spacious, quiet and so clean! Our only disappointment was the weather was cool enough that we were unable to use the outdoor space in the evenings. Ithaca traffic is always a challenge no matter which direction you’re coming from, so know to give yourself enough time to get into town and/or campus. We used Tenwood as home base for a gorgeous wedding at Quinta Rosa bringing family and friends together from across the U.S. Groceries were in the frig to help us with a late arrival. Doesn’t get much better than that. Thanks again Kim and Russ!
