The award winning William Henry Miller Inn is located in the heart of downtown Ithaca. Built by Cornell University's first architecture student, the details are stunning--chestnut woodwork, Tiffany stained glass, original shutters. Our full breakfast features all homemade breads, homemade English Muffins and bagels accompanied by homemade jams. Our evening dessert buffet is the perfect way to end the day. We are happy to accommodate dietary requests. Within walking distance of fifty restaurants, Cornell University, Cascadilla Gorge and just a short hop to Ithaca College, we are really central to everything. Providing concierge service and a business center, parking is right on site. Parking and wireless are included in the rate. Proud to be a member of Select Registry and Lynnette Scofield received the Innkeeper of the Year Award by Select Registry.

do you have 2 rooms with 2 q-size beds?
Good Morning! Since this is an 1880 home that we have converted to an Inn, we have four rooms with extra beds. Two have a Queen bed and a single bed; one has a Queen bed and a pullout bed and The Suite in The Carriage House has a King bed with a Queen pullout. Lynnette Scofield

Do you offer rooms with king size beds? Also, are you open in January?
Good Morning! Yes indeed. We do have rooms with King Size beds and are open in January. We do close for the first week of January since we take the opportunity to paint, redo our floors etc. Hope that you'll find this helpful. Lynnette Scofield
