We stayed at the Cayuga Lakefront Inn while passing through the Ithaca area and found the accommodations private, quiet and the inn keepers friendly. It should be noted that there are some interesting quirks, such as the overabundance of ribbon tape and curiously large in-room hammocks, but one would come to expect such conversation pieces at a B&B.
The breakfast was actually quiet good, with much time and consideration spent on preparation, ingredients and presentation. We were late to rise, but were delivered breakfast directly to our patio, a nice touch. Wildlife abounds around the Inn. We saw turkey vultures, deer, rabbits, multiple bird varieties and even a a friendly cat on the property. One down side would be the noting of the hot tub, which is in a thicket of brush outside and swarm of bugs (lakeside on a Summer night = bring plenty of bug spray) that make it nearly impossible to imagine using as freely and openly as stated in the collateral for the Inn. Overall, it's evident that the Innkeepers care about their property and in turn their guests.
