Welcome to Groton! Tucked out of the way in the countryside, Groton is centrally located only 20 minutes from Ithaca and 15 from Cortland. This is a cute house circa 1920 in a quiet location that's just down the street from a bakery, a pizza place, a diner, and the local library. The room has a comfy queen bed and lots of morning light to wake you gently. A light breakfast is available: yogurt, granola, and fruit (and, of course, coffee and tea!).

Sophia's home is an older place full of modern, science-flavored charm. My girlfriend and I stayed one night and it was a great stay. Sophia and I got to nerd out and talk about gas puff Z-pinch plasmas, and magnetohydrodynamics, but I'm pretty sure a science degree is not requir…

I'm a PhD student at Cornell, and my favorite things to do are snuggle up with a good book and a dog, or maybe some knitting! I love to hear other people's stories.
