Very quiet, homey log cabin with many different rooms to choose from. Hostess Wanda is so sweet & make you feel right at home. Russian Pancakes, cheese blintzs, and other home-cooked breakfast foods vary each morning. I really enjoyed the natural sulfer springs water. It has a smell that is odd, but it's so good for your skin...especially in one... More

Honestly the breakfast and the host are wonderful, the sulphur spring water that came out of the tap was horrible. We didn't shower or brush out teeth with the water there. It is quite pungent. It supposedly has healing qualities but I wasn't about to test that theory. We had reserved a two bed room and since we were the... More

Dear StampedPassport2013, Thank you very much for your review and we are very happy that you enjoyed our breakfasts. Historically we are located in an area where Sulfur Springs have thrived as long as the area has existed. Because of this, we keep Sulfur water in the Russian Jacuzzi suite, Polish Room and Persian Balcony rooms at the request of... More

Reserved room in building up the road from main house. At first it seemed okay, other than being a good 10 miles from Ithaca and in the middle of nowhere... But the room was full of stink bugs. We did not stay.

Dear Sjplb85, Thank you very much for your review. We completely understand your concerns and appreciate you taking the time to voice them. Because we are surrounded by 7,000 acres of State Forest it is very difficult to keep creatures away from our Inn at all times--I suppose this comes with the territory of living in the wilderness. I assure... More

The SECOND best thing about visiting our son is to stay with Wanda Gruenberg, hostess extraordinaire of the Log Country Inn. TVs are in sitting areas and not in the rooms, but the rooms are so charming and the breakfasts so delicious, you will soon find that point moot.

Great place, very special and homey. Wanda is an amazing host. The breakfast is very good, including amazing "blincheses". One thing to keep in mind - in one of the cabins, there are sulfur water in the shower, can be a bit challenging :-)

Wanda's Inn is in the woods and a few miles away from the town, it very quiet and each log hut/suite is furnished with great care to a country theme. We stayed at the Russian Jacuzzi Suite and enjoyed the experience very much. This quaint suite has two bedrooms, a living area and a well equipped kitchen, besides the jacuzzi.... More

In early January my wife and I stayed for a night in the Japanese Jacuzzi suite. I loved the inn, and Wanda's apprentice was so kind and cooked us an amazing breakfast! Then he walked us around the entire house and grounds, telling us stories of he and the owners lives. It was really sweet, and if you are looking... More

We stayed over Labor Day weekend this year, and rented the Russian Jacuzzi Suite for ourselves and our 2 dogs. Another couple - friends of ours - stayed in the Japanese Jacuzzi Suite at the same time. We all enjoyed the grounds - Wanda was super-accepting of dogs, even letting the run around off-leash on the property and joining us... More

I've now stayed at Wanda's Log Country Inn twice: first with a group of friends in 2005, and more recently I stayed on my own, while visiting with friends in Ithaca, NY. In 2005, about 10 of us stayed in the "silk road" building, sharing a large kitchen (with nice windows and a view of the meadow), two living room... More

This really is a big log cabin with additional outbuildings on a rural property outside Ithaca. Gorgeous rooms with interesting decor, some rooms with jacuzzi tubs. Great host -- Wanda -- is warm, friendly and prepares an amazing and extensive breakfast. Loved this spot.
