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.
Fresh flowers, fruit, morning coffee & muffins were in the room which had a lovely view of the meadow and forest. Peaceful and private with easy & quick access to downtown Ithaca and Moosewood Cafe. Safe, historic neighborhood. Clean, warm, spacious unit. So glad we found Cathy's Air B & B, our very first experience.
Thank you! Great ideas-both!
This is a little studio attached to the back of the owner's home. The property is conveniently located off 13A in a quiet setting yet close to town. We spent much of the time on campus with our daughter but found the studio to be clean and comfortable. There is a little kitchenette if you plan to eat in. Cathy had left delicious muffins, and all the fixings for breakfast/snacks. The unit itself is like spending time at Grandma's place- enamel sink and cabinets, original fixtures and Formica which was appealing to me.
Cathy was there to greet us and was kind and welcoming. She made herself available if we had any questions or problems. I would stay here again.
A perfect place for my weeklong stay in Ithaca. Wonderfully appointed with the right things for cooking, plenty of closet and dresser space to unpack. Muffins and fruit for the first morning were welcomed by this weary traveler. Cathy was very clear with instructions, and checked in a couple of times to check my needs. A beautiful view out the window, and just enough woods for a quick morning stroll. A car is a must for this location, with easy access to town and country both. Thanks to Cathy and Diane!
We had a great experience staying at Cathy's West Hill Studio apartment. We pulled up to a beautiful old Greek revival home with gorgeous giant pillars, and the apartment was at the end of the drive. We let ourselves in, and shortly after met up with Cathy. She was the most delightful host. She made us feel super welcome and was available for anything we needed. Cathy provided fresh baked muffins, fruit, yogurt, organic coffee and other goodies. We were pleasantly surprised to see some of the offerings turned out to be safe for Sam, who has has multiple food allergies. The place was secluded and cozy, and had everything you could need for a little getaway. There was a large picture window where we could see deer and chickens in the backyard. The chickens were very pretty. We enjoyed the peace of the country setting, and downtown Ithaca was only a short 5 minute drive. This was truly the perfect place to enjoy everything Ithaca has to offer, and we would love to stay here again in the future... only next time, for longer!
It was a pleasure staying here for four nights in October. The room was charming, perfectly kept, full of old fashioned/antique fixtures and furniture (except for the TV). It was just out of Ithaca and felt rural but very convenient to the Cornell campus. Deer in the yard pretty much every day. The owner was extremely friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend.
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.
