Escape to the rustic charm of a welcoming log home at the edge of 7,000 acres of state forest in New York's Finger Lakes region.

This is Log Country Inn Bed and Breakfast of Ithaca, a gracious country lodge constructed of fine Vermont logs and inspired by American pioneer cabins of the 18th and 19th centuries. The hardy settlers who built these original log cabins may find it hard to believe how far this style of home has evolved. A cathedral ceiling soars over the living room and most of the bedrooms and bathrooms have plenty of elbow space. Throughout, the rustic charm of this home is accented by exposed log ceiling beams.

The serenity of this setting and Log Country Inn hospitality can be enjoyed by all. Stroll the grounds in the summer and admire the vegetable garden. Bring your camera in autumn and capture Mother Nature's leaf painting. Explore the nearby Finger Lakes Trail, the longest trail in New York State. In the winter, you can walk or ski through the woods in the still aftermath of a new snowfall.

You may see deer foraging just a few feet away. Awaken to the sound of the roosters, and experience the peaceful wooded surroundings. Spend some time with the friendly dogs and cat. Residents of the barn include: a miniature horse, sheep, rabbits, and chicken (and often newborn chicks). In the spring, share the fields and forest as the gardens and wildflowers herald the warming sun. The Grunbergs love their home in every season and are sure you will too!

The decor is dotted with an Eastern European influence, as is the morning meal. A full breakfast is included in the lodging fee. Enjoy Wanda's famous blintzes or Russian pancakes served with juices, choice fruits, local bee's honey, specially selected jams, and home-baked breads or pastries. While you eat, you can get to know the other guests and your hostess, Mrs. Wanda Grunberg, a former biologist. She runs Log Country Inn along with some help from her husband, Slawomir, a documentary film producer for PBS.

Rest in comfortable, cozy lodging accommodations with exposed beams. Many of the rooms are furnished with custom-made country-style furniture. Others have an international flair, including a Russian Room, African Room and Japanese Suite. Most of the rooms are air-conditioned and have their own private bathrooms. Enjoy a fireplace and piano in the living room of the guest house or have a cup of coffee at the dinning table. A fully equipped kitchen is available for use. Relax in a double Jacuzzi in your private suite with cable TV/VCR or surf the Web in the Internet Suite. A sauna and afternoon tea are available during Fall and Winter seasons. Families with children are welcome in the bed and breakfast, where a newly built playground with a tree house awaits you. Your hosts will also find a place for your pet. Our Inn can provide a perfect place for spiritual retreats or family reunions.

Each day you'll have plenty of opportunities to explore all the Finger Lakes region has to offer. Hiking trails are close to the Inn, and golf courses and swimming pools are only a short drive away. The Finger Lakes themselves are truly spectacular and provide a fantastic opportunity for boating, fishing, swimming, and playing on their shores. You will find opportunities for exploring, biking, hunting, cross-country skiing, and downhill skiing at nearby Greek Peak.

The town of Ithaca and its neighboring communities are the proud home of Ithaca College, Cornell University, the Corning Glass Museum, the Finger Lakes Wine Trail, and Watkins Glen, home to world-class auto racing. Browse through dozens of antique shops or tour The Commons in Ithaca, known for its infinite variety of boutiques and fashion stores. The area is also brimming with many elegant restaurants, exciting festivals, lectures, forums, concerts, movies, and exciting dramatic productions at Ithaca's Hangar Theatre and the Corning Summer Theatre... and when you come home at the end of a full day, you can relax in the authentic Finnish sauna or Jacuzzi, or surf the web in your own private suite at the Log Country Inn. Before you leave, Wanda will take your picture (unless you resist), which will be part of their web site, "Today at Log Country Inn", and will stay there forever in the archive site (the pictures change weekly).

Treat yourself to a vacation to the Log Country Inn Bed and Breakfast of Ithaca. It's a perfect place for family trips and reunions, business conferences, and spiritual retreats. The Grunbergs will be delighted to serve you and make your stay as enjoyable as possible around New York's beautiful Finger Lakes.
