We rented Elan's entire house, including to the lower B&B level, for Cornell graduation weekend. With enough notice, they do rent the entire house which includes the 2 B&B bedrooms, the B&B family room and bath downstairs, the main floor with a kitchen, dining and living room area (open floor plan), and the upstairs with 3 additional bedrooms. This turned... More

Elan greeted me as I arrived and gave me a quick tour of the downstairs apartment where this room is located. I was the only guest that evening, so I was given my pick of the rooms. I chose the peach-colored room, which was quite cozy and comfortably cool despite the warm day. I interrupted Elan as he was cooking... More

Spent a night here on our way from Toronto to Philadelphia because of it's midway point, but we're pleasantly surprised by Ithaca as a town, and even more so by the Eco Village and its commitment to sustainability and community. We were inspired and refreshed for our trip. Elan and Rachel were absolutely wonderful hosts, and we were very happy... More

We had a wonderful time at Elan's place. He's a gracious host who is very knowledgable about the area and was very responsive via text whenever we had a question. He also came in every day to tidy up the space and restock breakfast items, which was we did not expect but very much appreciated. The Eco Village itself is... More

What a relaxing time we had at the Frogs Way! Inn Keepers Rachel and Elan Shapiro are delightful people. It was a pleasure to experience a different way of living. Typically when we visit Ithaca we stay at a downtown motel. I guess we got a little tired of the musty and overpriced rooms. This time we decided to go... More

Frog's Way B&B is a unique experience in the Ithaca Eco Village, which is very convenient to Ithaca. The location was perfect. The grounds are beautiful, and the view from the bedroom windows is peaceful and lovely. Guests may use the grounds and common areas, which is a wonderful perk. There is also a nice hot tub for your use.... More

We were happy to have the radiant heat in the floors during our visit, when the temperatures dipped well below zero overnight. We stayed in one bedroom but the other was empty, so we had a private stay. The bed was comfortable and the breakfast fixings provided were tasty. We didn't spend much time at Frog's Way as we were... More

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... More
