The Space

This is a lovely, comfortable, immaculately clean apartment. It's on a large country lot, yet only about 4 miles from the center of Ithaca, Ithaca College, and Cornell University. The new modern kitchen has a full refrigerator, oven, stove, toaster, blender, coffee maker, dishes, and plenty of utensils and cookware.
No need to bring water. My well water is excellent.
I will leave coffee, tea, and a few other items in the refrigerator.

The bathroom is as new and elegant as the kitchen with a full bath tub and shower. Both the kitchen and bathroom have bamboo floors..

There's a queen size bed with good linens in the main bedroom and a single bed in the living room. Enjoy the high speed WIFI, basic cable, and DVD player with several DVDs to choose from.

I can help orient you and make recommendations for things to see and do. Upper Buttermilk Falls State Park is only about 2-3 miles away. Taughannock Park (said to be the highest waterfall east of the Rockies) is 8 miles from Ithaca, along Cayuga Lake. There's also the incredible upper Treman State Park nearby. Here is a website of all the waterfalls:

You may want to try the wine trails, the Farmers' Markets, a boat ride on the lake, or enjoy the abundance of very talented musicians and other high quality arts and museums.

Coddington is a scenic, country road that leads straight into town.

Hope to see you!
All the best, Melissa

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Melissa's place. The apartment was immaculate and quiet--we felt quite at home and appreciated all the amenities Melissa provided. We did not meet Melissa in person--our schedules didn't mesh--but she was extremely responsive and helpful in our virtual commu ications. We look forward to staying with her again on a future trip to Ithaca.

  • I travelled with my older parents who are accustomed to staying in hotels and they loved Melissa's apartment. The kitchen was well-equipped and Melissa even provided coffee, tea, eggs (for breakfast), just like at a hotel. The space is a good size for three adults.

    The decor is simple, yet beautiful. And Melissa is a warm, gracious host and very communicative. It's a bit further from the town if you are visiting someone who lives in the central part, but Ithaca is so small that it's an easy 10 minute drive.

    We will have to return to Ithaca eventually and would definitely stay at Melissa's again.

  • I have stayed for one week beginning at 20th June. Melissa is really a good host. Unit is very clean, kitchen stocked with egg butter coffee tea bread is waiting for you. The only con I can say that it does not gave a window except entrance door windows and a balcony.

  • When we visited our son in Ithaca, we stayed in Melissa's apartment for four nights. It was very enjoyable. The apartment was nice and clean and made us feel at home. During our stay we visited many lakes and parks around Ithaca with our son. The house is very close to nature and is surrounded by beautiful trees and lawns. When my son visited the apartment he loved it and hopes to rent it some day.

  • We had a wonderful stay with Melissa! The private apartment has everything you need. The living room is spacious, the kitchen is stocked with the necessities, the bathroom is beautiful, and the bed is large and comfy. Melissa respected privacy but was always attentive to any needs we had. She even saved me from having a dead car battery by warning me that my light was on via an AirBNB message! Her house is a very close drive to Ithaca.

  • Lovely, private quiet space. Melissa left all sorts of thoughtful things for us, like fresh coffee, milk, and eggs. We especially appreciated how easy it was to have our little girl visit, she could play throughout the apartment and on the lawn outside. Great spot for families with kiddos.

  • We had a great time staying at Melissa's place! She is a helpful and thoughtful host and was very accessible. The pellet stove wasn't working, so she gave us another electric heater, which worked well. She also left us eggs, bread, milk, coffee, tea. It was great! The apartment is very clean, in a quiet area of Ithaca. It's about a 5 minute drive to Ithaca College and 7 minutes to downtown. Highly recommended!

  • The apartment is very nice and very clean. The queen size bed and linens are very comfortable, the bathroom and kitchen are really nice, and there were coffee, tea, fruit, bread, and eggs if we wanted them in the morning. We were very happy with the accommodations!

Quiet, clean, friendly, responsible, massage therapist and housecleaner. I love singing, yoga, natural health, and am passionate about trying to save our environment. I began hosting on Airbnb last summer and it has been a great success, to my surprise. Everyone has been super kind and considerate so it's been a great experience. It makes me happy when people enjoy the apartment and have a fun stay in my hometown of Ithaca. BTW, I am an open-minded sort and am not opposed to LGBT, families, or those of any particular race or creed. We're all one big human family!
