Looking for a quiet, convenient, amenable place to stay during your visit to Ithaca? Come, stay with us, enjoy being pampered. Your choice of solitude in the guest sitting room, companionship in the living room, or get some sun on our deck.
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 2 full bathrooms (shared) for your private pied-e-terre, and weather permitting; sit on the deck and watch the duffers on the 8th hole of the Country Club course.
Full breakfasts served in our dining room or on our deck. Additional meals are available. Homemade breads, cakes, yogurt, and granola.
Shampoo, conditioner and hair dryer 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 $109 per room per week night during the year, not including Cornell's and Ithaca College's Commencements or return 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.
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!
Arriving to Ithaca by bus or air? Don't wait an hour for a taxi, we will pick you up at the airport or bus station for $10.00.

I could not have hoped for more welcoming hosts and comfortable accommodations while visiting Ithaca - Miriam and Leonard are so natural at making their guests feel like they're right at home. Their house is on a lot away from the street and surrounded by trees. It is kept impeccably clean and is very tastefully furnished. My room was spacious, with a comfortable bed and a desk to work at. There is also a balcony overlooking the golf course where you can relax outdoors. Both Miriam and Leonard are fantastic cooks and will treat you to a lavish made-to-order breakfast - best I've had anywhere. Above all, they're just very friendly and interesting people and you'll find yourself having a conversation with them over a cup of tea and playing ball with their dog Frodo.

My husband and I are retired, our children are grown. And "Frodo" our Boston Terrier loves people and enjoys hosting them at our house and so do we. We are looking forward to meeting you.
