Small Town Charm

A short 8 miles north of Ithaca on the west side of Cayuga Lake, Trumansburg charms visitors with cozy restaurants, quaint B&Bs, and eclectic shops. Home to Taughannock Falls State Park, GrassRoots Festival of Music & Dance, Trumansburg Farmers Market, and more, no trip to Ithaca is complete without a visit to Trumansburg.  
On a 2 mile strip of Main Street, visit:
1.    Garret’s Brewing Co.- Garrett’s mission is to make and serve craft beer that has soul. Their Main Street location shows off their social side, acting as a living room to serve up their beers and talk about them, friend to friend.  
2.    New York Pizzeria- A village staple for over 20 years.  
3.    Atlas Bowl- A social dining destination, serving elevated comfort food, cocktail bar with local selections, and old-school bowling in a lounge setting.  Seasonally on Wednesdays, the chef visits the TBurg Farmers Market and creates a Locavore Special using the purchased local goods of the day.  
4.    Gimme! Coffee- An espresso bar with organic teas, pastries, and locally roasted coffee, check out the outdoor nook overlooking a gorge stream.    
5.    Juniper Hill B&B- Romantic, luxurious rooms appointed with fine art and antiques, the beautifully restored 1920s Colonial Revival mansion is a short walk to Main St.  The Gallery at Juniper Hill specializes in fine American Impressionist paintings from the early 20th Century. At least 100 works are displayed throughout the mansion, representing American and Finger Lakes artists and all are for sale.  Enjoy the gallery when you stay, or arrange a visit by appointment.  
6.    Inn at Gothic Eves- Relax under the stars in an outdoor Jacuzzi, soothe your soul with a massage, sleep in comfort and wake to a local, organic breakfast harvested daily.  
7.    Spa at Gothic Eves- Creating environments for the body & mind to shift towards balance, their tools are energy medicine, massage, healing sounds, crystals, & aromas.  
8.    Sundrees- If you love vintage, quirky, elegant, and up-cycled, you’ll love Sundrees. With a spectacular range of fashion, gifts, locally-made jewelry, art, and CDs from local musicians, Sundrees understands the importance of local art in all forms, and the positive effect it has on the community.  
9.    Not my Dad’s Ice Cream & Trimmers- bookending the 2 mile strip of Main St, both serve creamy, soft-serve ice cream seasonally.
