The place is very nice. Very good bed, bathrooms nice and clean, and the best thing: the manager is a sweet and polite lady. I definitely recommend Hound and Hare to everyone that intend to stay in Ithaca, NY. Actually if you're going to Cornell University, this is the perfect place, since is near to Cornell's campus.

My husband and stayed for one night in the Vanessa room. The room was amazing and spotless and with a lot of charm. We could see the beautiful garden through our window. Zetta was really warm and welcoming and made us a delicious breakfast the next morning. The house is gorgeous and has a very relaxing and beautiful secluded garden... More

Oh my, what a beautiful period home with a most gracious hostess, Zetta. The rooms are well appointed, I stayed in two different ones, the beds were so comfortable that I slept soundly the first night, both times. Both bathrooms, one tiny and quaint, one roomy and frilly were clean, and everything worked. Breakfast was delicious and conversation around the... More

My husband and I visited Ithaca for the first time for a get-away weekend. We are so happy we found The Hound and the Hare. The location is in the non-student area of Ithaca, about a 5-10 minute drive to Cornell University and/or the city's commons, where there are shops and restaurants. Our room was comfortable and clean and quiet.... More

Zetta is a lovely person; however, she did indicate feeling overwhelmed as an innskeeper due to health concerns and her age. It was sad to hear that. We found this bed and breakfast to be lacking in several areas: extremely uncomfortable bed in "The Valerie"; 30 year outdated decor; repairs needed (broken blinds, new shower fixtures and switches). One visit... More

Zetta is the perfect host, and the B&B is just breathtaking. The rooms are incredible, the garden impeccable, and the whole place exudes a unique atmosphere. We are a family of 5, so we took two rooms. The kids were delighted with their spacious beds and the fish pond in the back yard. It's a bit like going back in... More

This B&B is well run, spotless and welcoming. It is situated 5 minutes from the Cornell campus and 10 from the downtown area. The bedroom we stayed in, "Victoria", had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The bathroom was large and well-appointed. The hostess, Zeda, was warm, friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was served on fine china, silver... More

My girlfriend and I just stayed here. We had a wonderful time. The home is amazing. The gardens are exquisite. Zetta, the inn keeper, is a kind person who shared her home, her stories and her delicious cooking with us. We felt welcomed and cared for while visiting. The location is perfect because you are close to everything that Ithaca... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hound and Hare during our daughter's college orientation. We found it very welcoming from the decorative outdoor lights that greeted is on a very foggy night to the extremely well kept and beautifully decorated interior to the placid porch and gardens outside the dining room where we had breakfast.

An absolute delight; Zetta is the best. Plus her back porch and private spacious gardens with pond and sitting area - WOW. Zetta's living room, dining area, and sitting room are works of love. The three upstairs bedrooms have it all. We stayed in the ensuite for two (half-way up her heavily carpeted stairs): quiet, super comfortable, delightfully decorated, and... More
