My prices include the 3% Tompkins County Room Tax and the 8% New York State Sales Tax. There are smoke and carbon monoxide detectors as well as a fire extinguisher. But please see the DETAILS section for a more interesting description.of the place.
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.
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
Very safe and peaceful neighborhood.
There is no public transit, unfortunately.
This is a quiet house, so we're looking for quiet, respectful people.
No smoking of course.
This was my second stay at the apartment and it was cozy, clean, quiet and comfortable! Melissa was a welcoming and accommodating host and I enjoyed chatting with her when I arrived. I also really appreciated her efforts to offer a place that is eco-friendly and gentle on the planet.
Melissa was a good host. She came through for a last minute accommodation. The place was as described and pictured. The place is somewhat secluded, offering lots of privacy. A nice little distance from town.
It's a very cozy and new place studio on the first floor of the house, nice decors. I stayed here for a night w two girlfriends of mine for a night, my bed was very comfortable, temperature was warm thruout the night, but the other futon bed was too soft but we only stayed a night and it didn't bother my girlfriend as much. Melissa greeted us briefly when we checked in at night and we had the whole place to ourself w a lot of privacy! It's not near downtown Ithaca but driving distance away.
Our stay here was absolutely incredible. Melissa is such a sweet lady and was extremely hospitable during our entire stay. I hope we get the chance to come back! Thanks for everything!
We were a last minute reservation, but Melissa was accommodating and eager to make it work for us. Our stay was short but lovely. This was my first air B and B adventure and it certainly won't be my last!
Melissa's basement studio was wonderful - clean, warm, and well stocked! She was very available and accommodating, but also gave us our space. We also loved being just outside of town, far enough away for quiet nights but close enough for daily outings. We'd recommend Melissa to any couple!
Great apartment! Well equipped and exceptionally clean. Melissa was there to greet us and get us settled in. Honestly could not improve a thing!

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 in the summer of 2013 and it has been a huge success. Everyone has been super kind and considerate so it's been a great experience. I'm thrilled that people enjoy the apartment and guestroom so much. Having lived in Ithaca since 1970, I can offer you suggestions on what to see and do. BTW, I am an open-minded sort and am not opposed to hosting families, gay couples or those of any particular race or creed. We're all one big human family! :)
