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.
What delight! The company of chickens by day; the view of fireflies by night. The Getaway's picture window showcases the best of this countryside. The unit has everything you need and is close to major highways, state parks and Ithaca shopping. Loved it!
I highly recommend staying at this studio apartment! Cathy was an amazing host, and she made my wife and me feel very welcome. The apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay -- iron/ironing board, kitchenette, couch/tv, breakfast items -- and it is located in a quiet and secluded neighborhood just minutes from downtown.
We just returned from spending two nights at Kathy's wonderful studio that was everything we could hope for while visiting the Ithaca area. The location was perfect for visiting Cornell, IC and going to all the gorges and waterfalls in the area. The property itself is breathtaking with the beautiful flowers, free roaming chickens and the occasional deer cutting through her backyard! The little "extras" like fresh flowers and yummy fruits and muffins really makes you feel welcome. There is a Keurig for making coffee complete with cream and oj in the fridge so you can just take it easy in the morning and enjoy the serenity of your surroundings. We found the bed to be very comfortable and the studio was clean and quiet even though connected to the main house. We would definitely stay with Kathy again and highly recommend it! She also has great suggestions for places visit and unique things to do while in town.
Cathy was an amazing host! We were surprised at every turn, from the welcoming christmas lights decorating the windows to the neatly organized towels arrangement in the bathroom. Cathy treated us like we were an extension of her family. We would love to have the opportunity to stay here once again.
The studio was great. Very clean and perfect for our overnight stay in Ithaca. Even though it is a country setting, you are very close to down town. Cathy was not there when we arrived but she left us breakfast food for the next day and flowers. Because of our schedule, we did not meet face to face but we were very happy with the accommodations and I would recommend to stay here.
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.
