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! Four years just fly by, doesn't it? And it is amazing to watch students enter as nervous (usually!) freshmen and leave as maturing, ready to face the... More

It's always hard to write a review about a place that has already garnered such positive press, but I would be remiss not to add my own opinions about this Inn, which deserves each and every accolade and then some! My husband and I came to the Inn to celebrate a wedding anniversary and to enjoy a little rest and... More

Gorgeous house, tastefully done, incredible service and good food. And what's not to love about Ithaca? But the best part of the experience was the personality and charm of Lynnette - she made the experience so special for Anthony, Lance and me.

We just returned from three nights here. My friend's husband had found the inn as a birthday present for her - a girls weekend in Ithaca. I typically stay at the Statler on Cornell campus - but the reviews looked good, and it seemed fun to stay downtown. I am so happy that we stayed at this B&B! The inn... More

Very cosy and homely house that just invites you to sit down, curl up, make yourself comfortable in the couches and the chairs. Our room was in the carriage house and it was comfortable with a huge bathroom. There was always iced tea to help cool us down in the afternoons, various kinds of pies, cookies, and other desserts in... More

My husband and I just returned from a two night stay at the William Henry Miller Inn. My sister and her husband stayed in the Gardner Suite and we were in the Sanctuary.

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!
