Spent a lovely weekend at this beautiful location. Michael is a wonderful host with a super friendly staff. We were there with our 8 month old and they were so willing to accommodate our family - so much so that Michael is now Uncle Mikey! The breakfast is enough to feed an army and with only the freshest ingredients. We... More

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend visit to Ithaca and we couldn't have had a nicer time. Michael, the proprietor, suggested that we stay in the Gables room, which is in the log house on the upper floor. It has a spectacular bathroom and very comfortable bedroom. On the last night we were here there were... More

Spent the weekend visiting our daughter. Spent two nights in the Blue Room at Private Hotel + Pure Food. Enjoyed our time there. Michael is a gracious host. His hotel is clean and interesting and the food is terrific.

If you are looking for a room at a nice hotel in Ithaca, stay at the Hilton or the Marriott. If you don't mind venturing out into the country (twenty minutes from downtown, fifteen from Ithaca College), and you like to explore new and unusual settings, then check out Private Hotel + Pure Food. The various buildings that Michael, the... More

It's hard to answer some of the questions on TripAdvisor (which I have not used before) because Michael Casper's Private Hotel is not the usual hotel or motel - it's a unique experience. It's a 15 minute or so drive (south on 96B) from downtown Ithaca, where there are many other more conventional hotels/motels and many restaurants. Private Hotel has... More

Michael C, Owner at Private Hotel + Pure Food, Ithaca, responded to this review

As it is our goal to exceed our guest’s expectations, we are so sorry we did not meet yours during your telephone call. Our hotel is unusual, unique and very comfortable. With just six guest rooms and minimal office staff there are times that we cannot spend too much time on the telephone with a party inquiring about our property... More

This was the perfect way for my wife and I to get away after we were married. The owner, Michael, is very hospitable, making sure we had everything we need - even staying up late to let us in. He took orders for breakfast the night before and went shopping to get the exact ingredients. Michael is a world-class cook.... More

This place is peaceful and quiet, perfect getaway! Situated in the middle of a forest, air is amazingly crisp and fresh. I love the smell of the trees, the sounds of insects and birds singing. Personalised service and made to order breakfast using the freshest produce. In the evenings, we had wine in the courtyard, chatting as we listen to... More
