The Space

Our home is a 5 minute drive to Cornell, 10 minutes drive to half a dozen waterfalls and hiking trails and conveniently located on the Cayuga Wine Trail.

We have 2 bedrooms available for guests, a sitting room and a full bathroom (shared) for your private pied-e-terre, and weather permitting sit on the deck and watch the duffers on the 9th hole of the Country Club course.

Full breakfasts served in our dining room or on our deck. Additional meals are available.

Play ball with our Boston Terrier, Frodo; read a book in your sitting room or our living room, or just vegetate in our secluded but centrally located home.

Public transportation is conveniently accessible, or borrow one of our bikes and explore Cornell's Campus.

The price is $119 per room per night, during the year, not including Cornell's and Ithaca College's Commencement or returning to school dates.

We are obligated to collect a 3% County Occupancy tax and 8% NY State Sales tax. We ask you to have sufficient cash or a personal check available since these 2 items are not covered in Airbnb's service fee.
We will work out a special price for long term stays.

Arriving to Ithaca by bus or air? We will pick you up at the airport or bus station for $10.00.

The bus to Cornell stops 500 feet away from our house.
Our place is unique mainly because we are considered great hosts, and the house is extremely clean and comfortable to stay in.

Any further questions? don't hesitate to contact us. We will be glad to host you!

  • I can't imagine a nicer place to stay when visiting Ithaca. We had the graduation weekend package for our son's Cornell graduation, and staying here was so convenient and relaxing. Miriam and Leonard's home is an oasis of peace, comfort, and greenery. Plus amazing breakfasts! Must try: Miriam's shakshuka!!!

  • We had such a wonderful time staying here!!! Miriam and Leonard's house is charming, immaculate, very close to Cornell, and completely surrounded by gorgeous trees! Each morning we'd wake up to a 5-star breakfast. My husband said Miriam's omelet was the best he'd ever tasted! We enjoyed fresh fruit bowls (a perfect blend of fresh and dried fruit), oatmeal, pastries, and spring rolls that were INCREDIBLE! Miriam also makes her own custom tea blend that I highly recommend (it pairs really well with her pastries!) Their Boston Terrier Frodo is quiet, friendly, and very fun to play with. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer, and we will absolutely stay here again!

  • We had a wonderful stay with Miriam & Leonard and their very friendly dog Frodo! They are wonderful hosts, very warm, friendly and excellent cooks, their breakfast was amazing! We highly recommend Miriam & Leonard and their place if you are looking for wonderful people to meet and a great place to stay in Ithaca, NY.

  • Wonderful place to stay in Ithaca! Lovely quiet area, warm and inviting home, and hosts that make you feel welcome as soon as you pull up. Breakfasts and treats are all homemade, and superbly presented; we enjoyed fresh breads, jams, crepes, french toast, and were given many choices for the menu. Good conversations with helpful suggestions and Ithaca guidance, we both really enjoyed getting to know Miriam and Leonard and will definitely plan to go back. And Frodo is a really cute and well behaved puppy to play with.

  • We found hosts Mariam & Leonard, their home, the gourmet breakfasts, and Frodo to be completely as wonderful as all the other reviews said!! What a pleasure to stay with this amazingly kind, respectful, gracious, and hospitable couple. Even though I am personally not crazy about dogs, I enjoyed the extremely well-mannered and delightfully fun Frodo! We look forward to future visits! If this place is not on your wish list, it should be!

  • Overall this was a wonderful weekend getaway experience for my girlfriend and I. Miriam and Leonard are amazing hosts. They are welcoming, friendly, and make their guests feel right at home. Their home is in a quiet, residential neighborhood with easy access to Cornell's campus and downtown Ithaca. The whole house is impeccably clean. They are very attentive to your needs without being intrusive.
    Miriam makes unbelievably delicious breakfast and snack foods including homemade croissants, cinnamon rolls, banana bread, and stuffed dates. She offered to make anything we wanted for breakfast and both days it was restaurant quality (the fruit salad side dish was the best I've ever had).
    Last but not least, they have a really cute boston terrier named Frodo that loves to play fetch all day.
    We would definitely stay here again!
