Alexis and Mark provided us with a warm, welcome, and comfortable stay at their artsy and eclectic home. As IC grads, we were all about location. Alexis and Mark's home was within easy walking distance to all of the best, and our favorite bars, restaurants, and shops. We were able to come and go from their home with ease while leaving all of our belongings in a safe, secure, clean, and comfortable room. The shared bathroom was beautiful and never hard to utilize. Alexis and Mark allowed us use of their refrigerator, coffee machine, and provided us with clean towels when we extended our stay due to a cancelled flight. They are easy-going and very hospitable. Also, their dog Gunny is the sweetest couch patio we've ever met. We highly recommend staying at their home!
We had a great stay at Alexis and Mark's house. The house is beautiful and everything was as described. The house is in a convenient location and our room had AC (a necessity in the summer heat). Guests are free to come and go as they please; check in and check out are very easy. We were only there for the weekend, but I wish we could've stayed longer!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Alexis & Mark's place for just one night, but it was the perfect place for a quick visit to Ithaca. The house was just a few blocks walk from Moosewood restaurant, where we had a great dinner, and a few more blocks from the Ithaca Commons with various shops, restaurants, bars, etc. The house was great, with artwork on the walls, books and records, and turtles! Check in was very easy and flexible, which was nice too. I would highly recommend Alexis and Mark's house for a trip to Ithaca.
Alexis and Mark were wonderful hosts. Very nice room and shared bathroom. Easy to get to and lots of parking. Very close to lots of stuff too :)
The house and room were great. Alexis and Mark and Gunny were great hosts. I didn't have much time to spend with them, as I was visiting IC with my daughter. But they were very accommodating and even tried to help me find a battery charger for my camera! Thanks so much for a wonderful stay! I'm sure I'll be back in 2018, and probably sooner :)
We've stayed at Marc & Alexis' for just one night. The room was very clean and it's a lovely house. Alexis gave us some good advise for our day trip. Great place to stay!
House of Happy!!!
I absolutely loved Ithaca and Mark and Alexis' house has sooooo much charm! What a lovely little town and great place to stay. Mark and Alexis were super nice and cool to talk to and were happy to help me in anyway I needed, with directions and things to do.
The people in Ithaca are really friendly, the town is so cute and it's a great base for exploring some of upstate NY's best nature reserves and hikes. The pictures of the home don't do it justice, it's so much nicer in real life! The bed was really comfortable and there was a lot of privacy. I had the nicest time and hope to visit again soon.
Thanks heaps Alexis and Mark!!!
We had a great time in Ithaca staying with Alexis and Mark. They are well organized and the room and house are very clean and beautiful. They even have a small turtle grotto - two turtles that live in a pool at the front of the house. Mark and Alexis know a lot about the neighbourhood and give recommendations about the area. We would recommend staying here!
Perfect room just as described. Location is awesome, only a few blocks away from the commons and a really short drive to all the waterfalls. Definitely going to stay here again.
An awesome place, right in the heart of Ithaca! We were especially fond of the turtles (don't worry, they aren't in your room), and the awesome kitchen. The ceiling fan was also a plus :) I recommend this place without reservation!
Oooo Alexis&Mark... What a great couple! They are respect the house rules and they were also clean guests. I was privileged to get to know them and be their host. i had great time whit them and i hope to see them again someday! :)
would have them in the house again.
thank you for choosing my home. :D
Kiiva pari. Pidimme keskustella heidän kanssa, mielenkiintoinen keskustelu.
Alexis & Mark are absolutely superb guests. Lovely, nice and easygoing. Very tidy and respectful, I'd recommend to anyone. Thanks for staying with us! Greetings from Merlin the grumpy head :)
Alexis and Mark were very good guests. They observed the house rules and left the place in great shape. They are welcome back any time.
We were happy to host you for your trip to hershey and I'm glad to hear you had a great time. You are welcome back anytime and we really appreciate the way you left the condo, it makes things just a little easier for the next guests :)
Alexis and Mark are the perfect guests .... super friendly, yet discreet, easygoing and trustworthy. They are more than welcome back anytime.
Alexis was my landlord, oh so long ago. ~2002 to be specific, so I believe we now count our friendship in decadal units (1). She is a gracious host, otherworldly chef, and fun to the MAX (also has a friend name Max).
Ingredients for Alexis's sick feel:
Makes cupcakes – check
Cuts a mean head of hair – check
Active and respected in her community – b(phone number hidden)g check
Makes regular cakes – like a boss
Taste in music – world class
World traveler – extraordinaire
Mineral collection – enviable
Coffee knowledge – extensive
People named Mark? – knows many
Stained glass – Yup, Alexis makes that too!
One time, Alexis and I and her illustrious sister attended the symphony in Boston. A lovely evening was had by all and Mahler was a personal highlight (I do not remember which piece). Afterparty? Finale for dessert, and though the coffee pedestrian and the pastry underwhelming, the company was second to none.
Other sundry co-adventures include:
Cirque du Soleil
Artisanal, farm-to-table, tasting menu deliciousness
If that's how you roll, stop by Plain Street for a cup o' joe, a stylin' 'do, delectable dessert, and great people (likely to be named Mark).
