Visited the William Henry Miller House for the second time, and already looking forward to another visit. A great location walking distance to shops, dining and so much more. The property is a fantastic nineteenth century brick beauty that has been updated to offer guests both extraordinary comfort and service. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the "all night" desert... More

I've stayed at the William Henry Miller Inn five times. Each time was perfect. The rooms are charming and unique, with amenities such as mouth wash and make-up remover in addition to regular items such as shampoo, conditioner, and lotion. One of the king rooms has a large bathroom with jacuzzi. A special treat: each night the Inn features a... More

Lynette is a knowledgeable and very friendly hostess. She makes you feel welcome and relaxed the minute you enter! Coffee and tea are always available 24/7, and a mid-evening freshly made dessert sits nearby tempting the palette! Two living room/dens are open downstairs for enjoyment and conversation and just sipping coffee!

This B & B is the perfect combination of a stately home with beautiful woodwork, stained glass, and an inviting decor. Hostess Lynette greets guests with genuine warmth and is an excellent ambassador for the city of Ithaca. The rooms were comfortable and very clean.
