About this listing
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 1 bedroom available for 2 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 9th hole of the Country Club course.
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 $129 per room per night, not including Cornell's and Ithaca College's Commencement 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.
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!
