Great location for visiting the Finger Lakes region. Off main street and thus quiet. Very clean and beautifully furnished with antique furniture that has been finished beautifully. Very friendly owner, Nancy, who has a lot of great information about places to visit in the area. Beautiful area outside the hustle bustle of the touristic Finger Lakes region. Dryden is a... More

Our recent stay makes me wonder if the previous people who gave this 4-5 stars have ever stayed in a B/B before. Having stayed in many B/B, I was very let down at this one. There are many others in the area for comparable price that put more effort into it. Okay the pros: extremely quiet at night, clean, Nancy... More

Before taking these comments seriously, please read her other nasty reviews. She seems to take pleasure in ripping establishments apart. I am very accommodating to my guests and have had very positive reviews. This is a beautiful house and I am sorry that my decor is not to her liking. It is quiet, clean and comfortable here, with a fabulous... More

I was lucky enough to get a room here last minute. The inn keeper was very accomodating! I loved the porch at the house. It was nice to come back home after dinner and relax on the porch for a while. Trying to find a room in or near Ithaca in the summer is nearly impossible if you don't book... More

We were in Ithaca for an extended stay and chose to stay at the Turrett house for 6 days in Dryden, a short distance from Ithaca. It was a great experience. Nancy, the host and owner, was gracious and provided us with a warm welcome and delicious breakfasts. The place is very clean and well kept, and the rooms are... More

Our hosttess was delightful. A person you want to meet. The main room was massive, and bed very comfortable. The closed off alcove allowed our grown daughter to stay with us at the last minute. Our host accommodated our eating preferences for breakfast with new and old recipes... all delicious. The location was perfect for our visit to Cornell and... More

We had planned on staying in different B&B in town, but had to relocate due to cats on and under our bed. We ended up at The Turret House and it was such a nice surprise. Extremely clean in all areas, tasteful decoration, great homemade, healthy breakfast and the owner was very welcoming and friendly. Stay here if you're in... More

From the welcome on the delightful porch to the departure after a wonderful breakfast, The Turret House is a welcome break from bland corporate hospitality. Nancy is a consummate host with endless anecdotes to regale. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and well appointed. Really cannot find fault.

Like others before me I was just introduced to the 'where in the world do I stay when I visit my kid at Cornell' riddle. Fortunately I stumbled on a great answer in the nick of time. Indeed, Ithaca is not the worlds easiest place to find a good room, at a good value, during the time that you need... More

We planned a last minute trip to visit our child at Ithaca College and hotels (as is so often the case in Ithaca and the surrounds) were hard to find and/or expensive. I came across the Turret House on a website and while we don't prefer B&Bs, decided to take a chance. We're very glad we did. The house is... More

I stayed here in October 2011. This was an excellent bed and breakfast, a short drive from Ithaca, NY. It was a great value: less expensive and way nicer than similarly priced hotels in Ithaca. Hotels in Ithaca can often be very expensive, so this was a great find. It was clean and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was excellent, and... More
