Frog's Way inspired me to live more sustainably when I'm at home. Being comfortable in beauty and living simply can all co-exist, and Frog's Way is a living example. My son and I will remember this for years to come. Thank you!

Frog's Way B and B is a home away from home. My daughter needed a break from dorm life but didn't want to travel far for February break. So, we made a home at Frog's B and B. Besides a very comfortable bed (always important), we had a lovely living room to relax in with a little dining area as...

My husband and I shared this place with another couple over Valentine's day weekend and had a fantastic time! The owners provided a ton of delicious homemade food and drink, comfy bathrobes and plenty of towels and blankets for us to stay warm with! The place had lots of games and books for us to use, and the surrounding area...

I have friends in EcoVillage, so perhaps I'm pre-disposed to like the quirkier features of this B+B. I also know my way around Ithaca, so the modest inconvenience of haivng to drive down West Hill to get anywhere in town was no big deal. Space is cozy, with no wasted features; I expect that had I been here on a...

Much of the reason our exploration of EVI was so satisfying was because Frog's Way was our base camp experience. We felt welcomed, guided, informed and cared for. Elan is a generous and knowledgeable host, someone who offered both autonomy and engagement. Instantly we felt a part of the EVI community, rather than outsiders looking in. What good fortune to...

An exceptional, peaceful stay in the heart of Ithaca's pioneering EcoVillage! Fantastic vegan and vegetarian food provided and a kitchenette and library with books for all tastes. I would go again and would recommend staying at Frog's Way for the amenities and the hosts!

My husband and I were interested in learning more about the Ithaca Ecovillage so staying here was a great option. We appreciated the chance to stay in the ecovillage and Elan showed much hospitality. We loved that he was educated on and interested in talking to us about local environmental issues and he was very generous with accommodating our needs....

When I searched "Ithaca green B&B sustainable" Frog's Way was the persistent top hit. Elan does a great job of maintaining his website which is clear honest and expectation-setting. There is no reservation option on the site, so I emailed Elan to see if he had room for us. He was very kind and promptly responsive, and when he learned...

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay at the Frog's Way B&B. We have been coming to Ithaca for many years for conferences and other events. We've stayed at many of the hotels and motels around the area, some of them were nice but others were in need of renovation.The location of Frog's Way is awesome, just a few minutes...

This B&B is located in the very special environs of EcoVillage Ithaca. The proprietors were very welcoming, and the rooms were full of useful literature about the local area. The highlight of our stay was definitely the fridge and shelves stocked with tasty homemade snacks and locally grown fruit. The bedrooms give lovely views out over a community garden. They...

“There are only 2 rooms to choose from and depending on when you book, you may not get a choice. Peach is a little bit bigger, but I just resonated with the light and vibe in Lavender.”

“It is a little confusing to locate the B&B at first- especially if you are (over)dependent on your smart phone, as google maps doesn't (yet) seem to pin-point it-but if you call Elan he is happy to help you navigate.”

“Ecovillage is developed based on sustainability principles, so as far as indoor spaces are concerned, "less is more". Yet Frog's Way offers sufficient place for comfortable sleep and breakfast. Since we were traveling as a family of 3, we rented the larger of the 2 rooms - the peach room.”

“Stayed in Peach which was lovely, even if you don't stay in lavender room the lavender soap and flowers abound so you get a bit of this as well!”
