had a great time in cathy's place. very warm and welcoming. very close to town and easy to access. and it was so sweet of her to provide muffins and oj and fruit for the morning!
Cathy is a very welcoming host. The apartment is very well outfitted with equipment for a great stay. The neighborhood is very quiet including deer munching right outside the window. A little too far to walk to downtown conveniently.
Cathy did a great job making us feel welcome-- we were a little late, but she showed us the apartment, and made sure we had all we needed. Because it was a cooler night than expected, she even provided us a little space heater to use. Nicest of all, she made us a delicious banana bread for the morning, complete with butter and fresh orange juice.
Though I slept wonderfully, my girlfriend (who is a notoriously light sleeper) did want me to note that the radiator's noises caught her off guard, and the room was a little too bright for her in the early morning. That being said, only use that as a gauge if, like her, you're high maintenance and need complete silence and darkness to get a good night sleep.
Overall, it was a very comfortable stay, made very special by Cathy's breakfast and the wonderful experience of waking up to the sounds of birds chirping.
This past weekend was my second stay at Cathy's studio apartment, set back from downtown Ithaca on a quiet street in the woods. It is so peaceful there--a comfortable place to return to after a day of socializing and exploring. I especially like the setting, watching deer come out of the woods at dusk to nibble on promising looking shoots. The bed is comfortable, the kitchenette is well stocked, and Cathy is available for any needs. (This visit she swept the snow off our car, for which we were very grateful!)
The apartment was terrific for our short stay in Ithaca. The location is great and the host has the right balance between being available and letting us do our own thing. We look forward to staying there again!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Cathy's place for Valentine's Day weekend. She was extremely friendly and provided breakfast for us as well as chocolates! The property is just beautiful, the bathroom had everything you could possibly need, the kitchen had plenty of equipment to cook with. Cathy is a very friendly woman and made us feel as if we could ask for anything. We would absolutely return for a second stay.
Cathy was hospitable and welcoming. My girlfriend and I arrived mid afternoon and found a bowl of fresh fruit and fresh banana bread awaiting us. Orange juice and tea were also provided which made for a great breakfast the next morning. The studio is in a nice, bucolic setting but only about 5 minutes from town. We slept well and thoroughly enjoyed our time in Ithaca and the comfort of Cathy's studio.
We enjoyed our short stay at Cathy's studio—it is comfortable and well-appointed, in a lovely area just outside Ithaca and near Cornell. Cathy was a great host—she was able to accommodate us at the last minute and was very warm and helpful while we were there. Thanks!
Our stay at Cathy's studio was fabulous! Cathy made us feel very welcome and provided a great breakfast with muffins, fruit, OJ, and coffee and all the fix-ins. The place was very cozy and had plenty of extra blankets in case it got chilly. Cathy was very friendly and I had no doubt that if we needed help with something, she would be there to assist.
Cathy is very welcoming and the apartment is a great little space. I really enjoyed the stay.
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.
