Key Cottage at

New Park in Ithaca

Key Cottage

1 Bed area, open floor plan  • 1 Bathroom (1 full) • Sleeps 1-3       
Amenities –  Dog Friendly, Fireplace, Internet  (...more)

Key Cottage is the keystone of the New Park property. It's homey, cozy, and private. It has many signature New Park elements, such as stained glass, incredible stonework, and incredibly rare Brazilian purpleheart floors, with a splash of Padouk wood. 

Key is not without its quirks. The quirks quickly grow on you - the angles of the ceiling, the plethora of doors and will soon feel like home. And when you go home, you'll wonder why all your windows aren't circular, why your floor isn't purple, and why you don't have an outside door in your bathroom. 

Key Cottage has a queen sized bed and a click-clack couch (it lays down). It's comfy enough for a few nights - I've slept on it. Currently, the Key Cottage is set up as a studio (we are working on making it a 1BR, but we aren't there yet). 

The cottage also has a full kitchen - it's a "vacation kitchen", so it doesn't have "everything", but it has a large fridge, oven, stove, and sink. It also has coffee (super important) and wine glasses. Lots of counter space too....wayyyy more than you need, but if you take a step back, you'll realize that the island in the center of the room is in the shape of a keyhole and it will all make sense. 

The sitting area is cozy with a couch, a couple of chairs, some poufs, and a fuzzy rug. Then, when you walk through the keyhole shaped door, you'll find a large dining table. There will be some locked cabinets in here, but you won't care. The cottage has heat (including a fireplace) and AC. 

The bathroom has everything! Large counter, walk-in shower and...what everyone needs in their bathroom...a door to the outside world! It's weird! But at one point in time, New Park allowed camping, and that was the "camper's bathroom", so it did exist for a reason. We kept it because when you're unloading groceries it's just SO easy to nip through the bathroom than run all the way around the cottage. So there you go! 


About New Park:

New Park is a one-of-a-kind 18 acre property just north of Ithaca in the Finger Lakes Region. It is 10 minutes from the city of Ithaca and 5 minutes from Taughannock Falls and Trumansburg. It was originally a roadside motel, but in the 90s, every room was transformed into a work of art. Stained glass, handcrafted stonework, and incredible woodwork laces every single room.


Features of New Park Property:

  • There is one room called the "Wish Room" which has a wood burning fireplace in the middle of the room, as well as a piano, guitars, record player, gas grill, cable TV and wifi.

  • Romantic gardens, rolling lawns, and a forest for hiking (as long as it isn't hunting season). 

  • There are two communal fire pits - one in the center of the property and another off to the side. The entire property is surrounded by a very tall privacy fence that once protected the privacy of a celebrity (ask the staff or the locals and they'll tell you more!). New Park also has an event space and a picnic area by a creek that is so beautiful that people get married there almost every weekend of summer.

  • New Park also has a total of 7 suites and can sleep up to 22 people across them, so bring some family and friends with you! Each cottage is listed separately, and we also have a listing for our "Triple Suite". 

Note: This property has a venue on site and does occasionally host events. All suites have designated parking and the events must be finished before quiet hours which are 11pm-9am. The gardens, trails, firepits and lounge are all open to share with other guests on site.
