We arrived in town rather late without a place to stay. This place had the perfect accommodation for us - a two bedroom apartment in a house nearby but separate from the main house. We had two bedrooms, one bathroom and a living room. I liked the living room best. It was a nice size with galley kitchen (fridge and...

So as I understand it everything was great except the size of the rooms in our most economical accommodation and you didn't like the view from the bedroom. Seems like minor issues for such a harsh overview.

We stayed in the Villa Madeline guest house for three lovely nights in Ithaca, NY. The location was central to The Commons, up a big hill. The room was clean, big enough for a couple and felt cozy enough for us to feel at home. There were a few quirks, but not enough to deter us. Breakfast each morning was...

My husband and I stayed for a week while visiting family in the area. The location, grounds, and our lovely cottage apartment were thoughtfully designed, decorated and well maintained. We had plenty of privacy and felt totally relaxed during our stay. Breakfast each morning was innovative, beautifully presented, fresh, and heavy on local ingredients. The Inn is located within walking...

We just returned from a three night stay in the Hillview Holiday House while attending our son's college graduation. The house is beautiful, spacious and is the perfect spot for a family party. Ken and Madeline go out of their way to be helpful and are always quick to respond to questions or requests. Having this wonderful house to celebrate...

We stayed at this inn close to Valentine's Day. We were pleased to find a place that allowed us to bring our two large dogs. The four of us (my husband, me, and our two married friends) stayed in the Hudson Apartments, a 2-bedroom apartment on the first floor of a house around the corner from the main house. It...

I recently stayed at the Inn on Columbia and had a peaceful and pleasant time. I was in the blue room, which is located in an adjunct property around the corner from the main building. It was spacious, immaculately clean and very comfortable. I was greeted warmly by the owners and given detailed directions and recommendations about Ithaca and my...

We stayed at the Hudson Apartment which is a satellite facility of the Inn on Columbia. We had a lovely two bedroom apartment with one bath and a living room with a kitchenette. The decor was a mixture of modern and traditional. The beds were comfortable with good linens and there were plenty of towels. Each morning we had a...

The music was bad and the beer was off but the Inn on Columbia made it all worth while. We recently stayed overnight in Ithaca, NY to see music at one of the local venues. Because my son was not available to watch the dog we brought him with us. ($25 extra, which appears to be a standard cost for...

We stayed at the Inn in October (IC's homecoming) in the Villa Madeline on Aurora. The room was super comfortable with a big en suite bathroom. Breakfast included muffins, fruit, yogurt, and scones in a ribboned box with a cheerful "Good mornin!" on the label. The house was very convenient to the Commons and the rest of downtown (10 minute...

By far one of the nicest places to stay in Ithaca. We have stayed with Ken and Madeline several times we discovered their beautiful B&B when our daughter attended Ithaca College.
