We're a family of four with two teenage boys who decided to splurge a little on our Ivy League Road Trip to Cornell/Ithica. My husband and I got a King bedroom with balcony and fireplace. Well worth spending extra on the balcony as the view out back was very nice. The bed was comfy and having two sinks and shower... More

Be prepared to make your plans for either Ithaca College or Cornell well in advance. I made my graduation reservation on January 2, 2014 for a May 2015 graduation. We were blessed to have been able to reserve the Yellow Barn Suite. I have stayed many times at the hotel and have always enjoyed the homey feeling of the property... More

Dear LT: I call you LT because we're friends . I mean we go back more than 10 years! Back then my wife and I stopped briefly in Ithaca and we thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality. So much, that when we were planning a simple anniversary trip to NY wine country we immediately thought of you! I have to admit I... More

Hubby and I stayed midweek for a little anniversary splurge. Our spa appointments were messed up so we cancelled treatments and just planned to enjoy our room. We had expected a larger hot tub in the room but it was only big enough for one. I used the tub once in the evening but it wouldn't hold water the next... More

Part French manor, part eclectic upstate NY, all good. Run more like a bed and breakfast (but breakfast is not free!), and done well. Small facilities, spa, hiking, excellent adjacent John Thomas Steakhouse, free wine in evening, coffee and tea all day. Rooms are nicely equipped though beds a little soft. Very close to Ithaca College, 5 minutes to downtown... More

This facility is located in a nice quiet area outside Ithaca. If you are interested in land for walks, and a quiet countryside, this may be the place for you. Rooms are nice, clearly reflective of the age but with unique character. It was difficult to use technology, even a computer, as outlets were limited in the room, and the... More

This hotel is very nice. The rooms are gorgeous and very comfortable. There was a gas fireplace in our room and since it was cool and damp when we got here we started it up and our room warmed very quickly. The bathroom is spacious and the shower/tub is great, two shower heads that are actually high enough that my... More

We came here for my wife's birthday weekend. I called the day before and the staff had fresh flowers and chilled champagne waiting in the room. The lobby is warm and inviting with a wood fire, seating area and a small self-serve wine bar. The room was spacious and very comfortable with a pillowtop bed, gas fireplace, small refrigerator, TV... More

We booked here after reading some fairly mixed reviews. It's located on a lovely overlook and even on a cold gray day the views were very nice. The facilities are clean and the individuals who work there are exceptionally nice and sincere. As other reviewers have noted the building is in need of renovation. The bathrooms and rooms are worn,... More
