Lora and I, both professionals at Cornell University, moved to Trumansburg six years ago and very much enjoy living in our friendly community. Our home is filled with tons of energy, activity and lots of love! As a forever family of four, we cherish our time together during summer barbecues, swimming, events in the community, and skiing during the long winter months. We love quiet evenings by the fire during "movie night", but also enjoy riding bicycles, cheering on kids at soccer games, and walking the dog around our neighborhood.
Our family has had many travel adventures -- enjoying time at rented condos in Cape Cod, relishing the tranquility of Bed and Breakfasts in northern California, and vacationing with dear friends in Maine. Everywhere we go we understand the importance of feeling welcomed, the value of a clean and safe environment, and the glory of sunset cast against nature and an unspoiled backdrop. Come get away for a few days and enjoy the fun and friendship of small town living.
