We stayed in Hudson Apartment for 3 nights. As we were two couples the apartment was large enough, but it only had one bathroom. You wouldn't want to cook in the kitchen area as its too small and not well enough equipped, but we had Cornell student and boyfriend over for pizza and Thai food and that worked well on... More

We decided on a long holiday weekend and Ithaca caught our eye. Last minute I give the inn on Columbia a call. Madeline was a true delight on the phone. We stayed in the gazebo suite and it was amazing. Private, romantic, clean and modern. Breakfast was the best I've had in recent memory, you should consider staying a night... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for two nights and it was wonderful. Ken and Madeline have made a wonderful place for people to stay in Ithaca. The Inn is beautiful and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were very good as we never left hungry. Madeline was a wonderful hostest. We would definitely stay here again. We hated to leave.

The Inn on Columbia is a perfect sanctuary - part zen, part efficiency, all wonderful. I visited my college daughter and was able to deal with typical school demands - financial aid department, grocery store run, dorm supplies, yadayadayada and was still able to feel as if I were having a vacation as well. The room was well-appointed, comfortable and... More

We completed our Finger Lakes road trip with a 2 night stay in the main building. The architecture, the handmade furniture, the ever-present beverages, snacks, soft music made this B&B truly a lovely experience. Madeline's delicious breakfasts made choosing one each day a bit of a challenge. The coffee was delicious, a perfect start! The inn is wonderfully located just... More

I live in Ithaca and have had friends and family stay at this charming place. The accommodations are top-notch---from the gorgeous guest houses to the design of every last detail --to the linens and especially the scrumptious muffins and treats----Madeline and Kenn have seemingly thought of everything. They are welcoming and extremely helpful to travelers as they have extensive knowledge... More

My friend and I stayed at the Inn on Columbia in a room in the main house with two twin beds, which was just perfect for us! I brought my small dog, and Madeline was wonderful and very accommodating. She had a bag of dog treats waiting in the room, and didn't mind when we left the dog at the... More

We were in The Red Room in Villa Madeline...around the corner from the main house. It's on the first floor at the front of the building. Aurora St. is the main road between downtown and Ithaca College, so there is a steady stream of cars during the day and evening. We were not awakened by the traffic, but certainly aware... More

We stayed 2 nights at Maison Mango, which is affordable when divided among 4 or 5 adults. Ample parking, and friendly owners. The fireplace worked well for a cool Ithaca night, and the house comes stocked with food in the refrigerator, snacks, and everything you need for coffee and a quick breakfast. The only thing lacking was the air conditioning... More

Many many years of staying at different residences with the Inn at Columbia (Hillview House, Villa Madeline, and more recently, Maison Mango), and always very pleasant experiences with Kenn and Madeline, except our last visit, in December 2013. Appreciative because we had arrived a few days earlier due to blinding snow conditions, we entered Mango Maison, and while very cute... More
