Very clean, friendly Inn, serves a delicious breakfast and yummy night time sweet snacks. The complimentarycoffee and hot water (tea, hot chocolate) was a welcomed touch as well. We also enjoyed the super soft bedsheets! Apparently these are ironed (by hand!) by a local gentlemen that just enjoys ironing (sheets). Easy walk to downtown shopping and restaurants.

I stayed 3 nights at the William Henry Miller Inn. I really could not have asked for anything more. The house is beautiful and Lynette’s warmth, kindness and great sense of humour make one feel so at home from the moment you enter the Inn. The food is outstanding, breakfast is an absolute delight and the home made deserts an... More

If you are travelling from Niagara to New York then this is the perfect stopover. Started with a warm welcome from Katie. Showed us the lovely old (by American standards!) house and pointed out the coffee and drinks and told us about the evening dessert buffet. Leave room for this when you return in the evening! Helped us up to... More

My wife and I stayed at the Miller Inn for 1 night in mid Sept. during a cycling trip thru the Finger Lakes region. We were greeted by a warm welcome by one of the ladies that work with Lynette and a very much desired carafe of ice water. Our room, Dane's, proved exceedingly large and comfy as did its... More

Loved this place. Lynette, the owner and inn keeper was very attentive and knowledgable about the area. There was always tea, coffee, and homemade lemonade available. 2 choices for breakfast with a 2 hour window for service. There was a dessert buffet at 7. The food was excellent, the room nice, large and clean. Close to nice shops and waterfalls!!!!... More

Thanks so much for your review and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. To say that everything is "walkable" from the Inn is absolutely the truth! Fifty restaurants; movies (our guests love to be able to walk to Cinemopolis!); museums; shopping and, just around the corner, the breathtaking Cascadilla Gorge. We assume that you didn't get to...

Lynette is the perfect hostess; warm, friendly, generous and an epic dessert chef. The house is a delight, beautifully restored and cosy with every detail considered. The setting is ideally central to pretty Ithaca and guides to the areas falls, parks and gorges made for a lovely stay.

Lynette is a superb innkeeper. The building is immaculate and charming. The service and hospitality is unparalleled. The food is incredible! Breakfast this morning included a poached pear, homemade blueberry pancakes or eggs and sausage with homemade whole wheat toast. Homemade desserts are on the buffet in the evenings. The location in Ithaca is ideal - one block from restaurant... More

WHM Inn was our base of operations for 3 nights during our recent visit to Ithaca. Lynette was a great host and sure everything we were interested in was addressed. Ithaca IS Gorges and so is this B&B.

It is so much fun, as an innkeeper who just loves the area, to see a guest who also loves the area! You sure fit the bill!

We were lucky to find this treasure of a place during our daughters orientation at Ithaca College. We stayed at the William Henry Miller Inn throughout our daughters four years in Ithaca. Lynnette, the Inn Keeper, became family and we loved the gourmet breakfasts in the mornings and the array of homemade desserts in the evening. The Inn is perfectly... More

And we miss you too! When we bought the Inn, we were such "newbies" that I never, ever expected that we would form such great friendships. That has been such a wonderful thing!
