Stayed here for our 1 year anniversary. Cannot say enough positive things about this place. When we drove up, the outside of the building was breathtaking. Staff went above and beyond. Food was incredible. This is THE place to stay in Ithaca!

This beautiful inn has the best food in Ithaca!!! Loved the breakfast and the amazing dessert bar. The staff were fabulous and I felt pampered. My room was comfortable, clean, and had a huge bathroom, too. I loved the front porch, and walking to the restaurants. All in all, perfection.

Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and thrilled that you mentioned the porch! We have had the most wonderful conversations with guests on that porch and only wish that ours was about twice as big to accommodate many more! We love being able to serve guests food that is local,... More

We recently revisited the Inn after a gap of ten years. It has held up well, still owned by the same friendly innkeeper. The rooms are charming and comfortable. The evening dessert buffet is a nice touch. The breakfast is good, although our server forgot to offer us all the choices for some reason. The location is excellent, a short... More

As the saying goes....yup, I'm still here! And we're so glad that you returned! It has been a wonderful sixteen years and we've met wonderful guests. And we're not done yet! I have to tell you that we have been racking our brains to try and figure out how you weren't told about a second breakfast option. Normally it is... More

We stayed for two nights at this lovely inn - the inn is both elegant and comfortable and a joy to be in. But ... the welcome, the breakfast and the care of the owner Lynette and innkeeper Katie made it special for a nostalgic return trip to Ithaca. Easy access to both downtown Ithaca and to Cornell campus. Thank... More

Greetings from The Miller Inn! It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and we are so glad that you enjoyed your time here. Katie is just the best and has been with us since we opened sixteen years ago. She knows the Inn "inn-side and out" and even recognizes every single sound. We are so lucky to... More

We were impressed with the comprehensive service, convenience, and level of detail provided in this inn. We stayed in the carriage house, which was a large three-room suite well worth the price. Although the decor was on the ordinary side, the furnishings were ample, including a sofa; the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious. The location was... More

Thank you for such a thoughtful review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. When we opened, our philosophy was that we wanted everything accessible for guests---beverages; glassware; computer and printer; teapots...you name it. We are so glad that you were able to find everything that you needed. A year ago we redecorated The Garner Suite in The... More

Gorgeous home and carriage house just down the hill from Cornell. We stayed in the carriage house which was a huge suite with a king and a jacuzzi tub and shower. Breakfast was fabulous with home made breads and goodies. Nice treat with dessert bar and coffee 24 hours. Lynnette and Kate couldn't have been nicer or more informative on... More

Thank you, Bill! We certainly enjoyed having you stay (so did Lucy!). We're so glad you enjoyed the food and I have to stay that working here and smelling home baked bread can be a killer! And I wonder how my hips got so big! If you are ever back in Ithaca, we do hope that you'll see us again. More

We spent the weekend here in mid-June 2015. My husbands extended family booked every room so we could spend time together for our nephew's wedding, and have the "run of the place." From initial booking to final checkout, our hostess and her staff were warm and gracious. The breakfasts were delicious and varied--there is something for everyone, be you a... More

We recently stayed here for weekend visiting Ithaca. Being two blocks from the Commons makes for an ideal location for a stay in the city. The staff was extremely welcoming and hospitable and was very accommodating of our dietary needs. All of the food, the breakfast and evening deserts, was absolutely fantastic! The room itself was charming and clean but... More

This is a charming building and the B&B is well-run. Breakfasts options were good and cooked to order. Desserts are set out at 7 and left out for evening browsing. The room was large and the bed comfortable. Our room had a jacuzzi tub which was real nice after a day walking through gorges. Noise is a bit of an... More
