I have chosen to stay here several times over the past year when in Ithaca for work. The accommodations are roomy, clean and private. The bed is exceedingly comfortable and the kitchen is always stocked with plentiful choices of coffee and tea. The owners are very welcoming and friendly, willing to chat and provide great advice about local dining and shopping. They are also respectful of one’s privacy. A tremendous overall value!
We were visiting Cornell for First Year Parents weekend. We throughly enjoyed our stay in John's home. Nice upper floor apartment with a separate entrance. It's a small apartment with a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. The owner left us a bottle of wine, a bowl of fruit, an ample supply of Kurig coffees and some power bars. There were numerous travel/winery guides for the surrounding area. It was about a 15 minute drive from the Cornell campus and 10 minute from Wegmans.
Great find since most local hotels were booked or charging exorbitant prices for lousy accommodations (such as the Econo Lodge which was filthy).
