My family travels to Ithaca a few times a year to visit my in-laws, friends and generally relax. We have no expectations to do anything in particular on these visits but unwind, so when we found Madeline and Kenn's accommodations at the Inn on Columbia we knew we discovered the right fit for us. Our first stay was in their carriage house around 2003 when our son was just 3 years old. We continued to stay there over the years until my daughter was born and we needed larger accommodation. No problem, because they have several different spaces to choose from. With our criteria and needs in mind, Madeline led us to Maison Mango. This house is large, comfortable, private (a must for us) and includes what they refer to as the "play house" in the back which is connected by a porch that my son (who will be 16 in May) has appropriated as his teen pad. Every detail has been attended to so all we have to do is unload the car and settle in. Madeline and Kenn are the perfect hosts providing some fresh items for the fridge upon arrival (milk, juice, yogurt, coffee, etc.) as well as fresh baked goods each day which are all absolutely amazing! The bedrooms are all well appointed, comfortable and the space is always clean and maintained during our stays. Many thanks to Madeline and Kenn for providing us with the perfect escape from the City for all these years! We are already booked for our summer stays and look forward to booking for the winter.....

A large group of friends / couples rented the entire Inn on Columbia and apartments next door for the annual triathlon. The house is full of Ithaca-charm, with lots of natural wood, character and interesting furniture. We appreciated having the large common space for family dinners, the fridge stocked with staple items, and the back porch and upstairs balcony for nighttime chats. The little details in how the Inn have been renovated were very cool and we loved the design. We hope to stay here again in the future!

We stayed in the green room & absolutely loved it! The bed was very comfortable. The room itself was extremely spacious. There was a nice patio off the back side of the room with 2 chairs for sitting. The shower was a little strange with the toilet being next to the shower but it works. The common area was well equipped & the goodies they put out were perfect! They gave each couple a little box with scones & muffins which my husband loved. I myself fell in love with the granola & yogurt. The house was a short walk to the Commons. It is uphill on the way back but we didn't mind at all. We would definitely stay here again.

We loved the location, decor, and breakfast. Very unfortunately for us, Kenn spoiled our stay by neglecting to honor promises. Book with caution if you value integrity. Look at all Kenn's responses to negative reviews to verify that he is NEVER wrong.

Stayed: July 2015

Like any other hotel, motel or bed and breakfast, a reservation is not confirmed until the guest provides a valid credit card.

We stayed for two nights in the house next to the main building which has been recently and perfectly modernised. All of the rooms are spacious and well designed - it is clear that the architect owner knows his stuff!
Pastries and fruit (as well as other things in fridge) for breakfast and are provided boxed for each group of residents so can take breakfast whenever it suits, as well as having the option to retreat to your private space if that is preferred, though we also enjoyed meeting other guests. Good outdoor spaces and plenty of space to kick back in rooms as well as in the common area.
There is ample parking (on property and on-street) and it is a comfortable walk to the downtown area where there is a broad range of places to eat/drink.
Hosts were very helpful with maps, recommendations for eating and places to visit. All in all a great visit to Ithaca on our N American road-trip
