Native Ithacan, back in the house I grew up in. Main activites are: keeping up with our business downtown, our two boy's activites and my chickens!

Left a note with a phone number. Door was open with key inside. It is closed off from rest of house with a separate entrance.
Cathy gave us explicit instructions on how to check in, and we had no problems upon arrival. The apartment was comfortable, clean, and neat and had a "country" feel to it, even though it was less than 5 minutes from downtown. The neighborhood was quiet and there was little traffic noise. Very peaceful and relaxing, especially watching the deer and the chickens outside the large picture window!
This was my second stay at the West Hill Hideaway Studio and it was a lovely as the first stay. It's charming, clean and cozy. It's minutes away from downtown Ithaca, yet you feel like you're in the country. I would recommend this sweet place to anyone and hope to stay there once again when I'm back in the Ithaca area.
Hello! Deb is definitely a great guest and we welcomed her back a second time. I was on vacation so I didn't see her this time, but she is a very interesting person, so committed to her work. Lovely in all ways-she is always welcome here-
Cathy and her partner were very warm and welcoming. It was fun to find out that my daughter uses her auto repair shop in town. We dropped off bags before going out to dinner. Cathy had the air conditioner on so the room was cool when we came back. The room was an extension at the back of the Federal period house, so it was well away from the quiet road. Nice and quiet sleeping. Everything we needed was provided including coffee, juice and blueberry muffins for the morning. I plan to use Cathy's BNB in the future. You should too.
Absolutely adorable. Quiet neighborhood, cozy space, and chickens in the yard. Some wear/tear/rusting in the bathroom, but the space is comfortable and Cathy is very kind and accommodating. Would recommend!
Cathy was a great host! The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet. Lots of birds and deer.
Lovely, charming space. Extremely clean, comfortable and relaxing. We loved the kitchen setup.
Cathy was a wonderful host for our trip to Ithaca. She was very welcoming and pleasant, providing a tasty breakfast for our first morning and providing excellent suggestions of things to do in the Ithaca area.The studio fit our needs perfectly, and we would absolutely stay here again on a return visit.
Cathy made us feel like where we were staying was actually our home. Usually when you go away to places, you stay at sub-par or average hotels/motels. You go through the process of checking in and getting your room keys, finding your way through the maze of hallways, and hoping your key card is read in the door reader. Not with Cathy. She made us feel at home before we even met her. The studio was exceptionally clean and well kept. Their were dishes for our use; pots, pans, and a spacious refrigerator. We had a working oven and three burner stove. It was marvelous! Our room was also quite private with a beautiful view to the woods and wildlife. Including a private outdoor entrance. Every morning Cathy would supply us with a simple, yet thoughtful, breakfast of cheese, muffins, fruit, etc. It was perfect. The location was also quite central to the Ithaca Brewing Company and a number of waterfalls. My girlfriend and I loved it all. The next time we are in Ithaca, we will surely be trying to get this place again. We highly recommend it to anyone who is traveling the area for both long and short stays.
Lovely experience at the West Hill Hideaway. It was clean, quiet, cozy, and very convenient to town. I never met Cathy, but we communicated when we needed to. She left us a lovely breakfast on our first day. I would highly recommend this place to friends. I was sad to leave.
Cathy is a wonderful host; my family and I have stayed with her many times over the years. Her home is drop dead gorgeous, with many striking antiques, a long driveway, amidst rolling hills. Perfect for sledding in the winter, and picnicking in the summer. We've known each other since college, and she and her family are among the most precious prizes in our lives. you will love her, and your stay with them! I recommend her as a host and her home without reservation.
