I stayed here on business for one night. The staff was very polite and the room was nicely appointed. It is without a doubt the best B&B I have ever stayed at. The building is an old mansion in downtown Ithaca, near the university. The building is in wonderful condition and has been modernized nicely. The decor inside, in both... More

Spend a buck and stay a couple nights here in downtown Ithaca. We enjoyed everything about it: great location to talk into town or the closest falls hike, breakfast was great with unique offerings, home baked goods for evening snack, bottomless fruit bowels all over, the place was spotless, the owner and staff were personable and professional on all levels....

We spent a wonderful 2 nights in the Carriage House suite, and I can't say enough about how well we were treated and how great the inn is. The breakfasts were fantastic, and quite unique. Our room (the Garner Suite) was spacious and immaculate, not to mention well-appointed: in-room coffee machine, giant jacuzzi tub, large sitting area and a separate... More

I visited with two friends for a birthday celebration and a day of Christmas shopping. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the Innkeeper, Lynette and her adorable tiny rescue dog, Lucy. Lynette took us on a tour including the beautifully appointed and comfortable public rooms, the dining room with round the clock beverage availability and the guests' pantry with a... More

This is one inn that we know we will want to return to. Lynnette made us feel like members of a loving and caring family. Nothing was missing and we felt absolutely spoiled. The location is perfect and within walking distance of so many key shops and restaurants. If you plan a trip to or through Ithaca don't hesitate to... More

We have been staying at WHM for over a decade each summer while doing research at Cornell's Olin Library. Invariably we are delighted, nearly overwhelmed by the care and concern shown by our wonderful hostess and her nonpareil staff. Lynnette is a warm and exceptionally sensitive person, whose joviality and bustling presence lend a character to WHM which few other... More

From the first time we stayed at the Miller inn, eleven years ago, Lynette and Dave, innkeepers, made us feel right at home. They greet guests as if they are family. The Inn itself, a large early 20th Century home, adds to the cozy feeling. The Inn is immaculate; the rooms spacious and the beds very comfortable. The breakfasts are... More

The perfect get away with all of your needs met. Lovely inn, friendly inn keepers and great breakfasts and desserts in an interesting location. The inn is convenient to restaurants and shops as well as hiking and wine tastings. The front porch is perfect for breakfast, drinks or a pizza dinner.

Thanks for a great B&B Just around the corner from very good restaurants and a great walk up waterfalls, on your way to the Campus of the beautiful Cornell University.Try it during mid October when the landscape turns into reds and yellows, and paths are littered with leaves. Daniel

Lynette and her staff gave us great directions on where to visit, walk, hike. We hiked all of Cornell to the first day. Saw the suspension bridge and gorges.
