Overall a great stay and a magical place. Went for a mother/daughter trip and stayed in the Balloon Suite. Loved the eclectic and quirky decor. The old school dial up phone was great! The rainfall shower was heavenly. Very peaceful and relaxing vibe here. A few recommendations for improvement. The pillows were very thin and flat and could use replacement. The suite would benefit from a deep clean. There were cobwebs in the circular window above the mosaic, lots of dead bugs in the bathroom light and scuff marks along the wall where the headboards were. One of the sliding door screens was missing a handle which made it hard to open. We couldn’t really enjoy the outdoor deck because there were hornets all over. The a/c unit is directly above the beds which caused it to blow directly on you while sleeping. I also would have appreciated some better wine glasses/wine opener. There were two very old looking plastic tumblers and a basic corkscrew opener but being in wine country I would have appreciated an upgrade on this. I also would have loved to have learned more about the history of this place. We never interacted with any staff while here and there was no write up about the history. I would recommend this place and return myself because it is unique and has a magical feel. Just a few areas of improvement and it would be 5 star!

My husband and I do an overnight stay once every couple months as a way to reconnect and get a solid night of sleep (we have a toddler and he is not a fan of the whole sleep thing). We stayed at the Park Suite at New Park for my birthday in December. We absolutely loved it, right down to every little detail. The room was beautiful and had everything we could need. Also, it was exceptionally clean. You’d think during this time that hotels would be going the extra mile to make sure rooms are spotless upon your arrival but sadly we have been seeing the exact opposite. But New Park IS going that extra mile!! They really didn’t miss a single spot. The bathroom -WOW. I have no other words. Even the keurig coffee station deserves a special mention because I’m a big coffee drinker and I’m often frustrated by the lack of variety other hotels have. Not only that, but I’m usually having to call the front desk and ask for more cream and sugar because they assume everyone just likes black coffee or that no one should need more than 2 creamers. The Park Suite had a huge selection of k-cups and plenty of cream and sugar. This was much appreciated!!! And finally, the view of the forest was serene (I can only imagine how gorgeous it is in the spring and fall). We had a crazy windy storm the night we stayed so unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to walk around and look at everything, but we are hoping for better weather next time because it seemed like there was lots to see. With as many trips as we have taken over the years, this was our absolute favorite and also one of the more affordable ones! The staff was also so nice and attentive. We plan on booking again soon!

The location is perfect, tucked away and minutes from waterfall walks, and only 15 mins from all of the conveniences in Ithaca. But I have to admit, there was a part of me that didn't even want to leave New Park! We stayed in the Boho Room, which had a spectacular stained glass windows, mosaics in the bathroom, and cosy pine wood throughout. The decoration was beautiful with tons of extra blankets, and everything you would hope for in a room including Keurig coffee machine. The grounds are truly magical, every time I walked around I saw something I hadn't spotted before. My favorite discovery were the gems that glowed in the dark embedded in some of the walkways. The sound from the beautiful stream that runs throughout the property is so relaxing. Thank you so much for a wonderful and romantic stay, I have dreamed about returning every day since!

Sitting in the Wish Room writing this review after a storybook walk through the forest this morning with my dogs. Everything about this place screams luxury, yet comfortable and accommodating. The place is beautiful with an inordinate attention to detail and pride in workmanship. This is a place that cannot be described in words or pictures. It must be seen to be believed. If you’re looking for a beautiful restful place to stay or a place to have a wedding or other special event, this place will knock you and your guest’s socks off!

We spent 4 nights there in the Park Suite. Spacious accomodations. Very clean and modern. Sara and her staff were quick to respond to texts. Nice grounds...private and secluded, but only 7 miles from the center of Ithaca. The bathroom deserves special mention....one of the very best that I have ever seen, with a huge walk-in shower and soaker tub. The whole place is different from other small hotels and inns, in a positive way.

WOW. My 100-guest wedding at New Park was a wonderful experience. The property is a beautiful setting, especially the forested ceremony area alongside a babbling brook. We loved that we had access to the entire venue from Friday to Sunday - this made planning, setting up and coordinating so much easier. We stayed on site in the cabins with a bunch of our friends, and it was a magical experience. The cabins are so unique, so cozy and we really appreciated the updated linens and furniture within the original beautiful carpentry and stonework. We and our guests had so much fun, everyone raved about the scenery and the location. The venue is large and grassy, with an indoor pavilion as well as an outdoor tented patio and two decks off the pavilion, so guests have lots of space and areas to hang out throughout the event, which we liked. We loved the lighting in the tent and the pavilion, and we didn't bring in much extra decor because the natural beauty of the place was enough. There is a bar built into the pavilion as well. The venue is only about a 15 minute drive from downtown Ithaca where most of our guests stayed. Sara and the New Park staff were amazing throughout our planning process and over the weekend of our event, helping out with anything we needed or asked. Sara worked directly with some of our vendors which helped so much with coordinating, and made sure everything flowed smoothly with all of our guests and vendors and with each part of our event. We truly didn't want to leave this magical place the day after our wedding!

Our New Park wedding was like a fairytale. We cannot say enough good things about the venue and staff at New Park. When we booked the venue in early March 2020, we signed our contract with Jamie. In early 2021, New Park sold to a new owner, Sara. We weren't sure what to expect with Sara but she soon reached out and set up a video call with us. We immediately felt at ease with Sara as she answered all of our questions and was so organized and thoughtful. She was also there to answer all of our questions about the changing rules and regulations with Covid and always kept us in the loop. Sara helped us plan everything for our big day and made sure we had a backup plan in case of rain. New Park is such a magical and beautiful place with so many unique spots both inside and outside. We definitely took advantage of all that New Park has to offer. We had our rehearsal dinner in the amazing pavilion where Sara and her team set up a farmhouse style dinner table. We got ready in our wedding suite with hair and makeup on site. We got married at the beautiful ceremony spot in the woods and then the dancing pavilion and dinner tent kept us dry from the rain. After the reception, we had an after party in the Wish Room with a bonfire. Finally on Sunday, we had brunch in the Wish Room. All of our guests kept commenting on how magical and beautiful the venue was! We even had several people inquire about getting married there themselves. Sara and her team helped make any request we had a reality like having a ping pong table outside for our guests to play. They even offered to run errands for us throughout the weekend. Sara and her team also totally updated the beautiful rooms at New Park and somehow made them even more magical and perfect than before. The rooms are so spacious, clean, and interesting! Everywhere you look there are special details and special touches like stained glass, hidden keys, and stonework. Every bathroom/ shower is incredible and unique! We had our whole wedding party and their significant others stayed with us on site all weekend which was perfect since we had guests arriving from across the country. They couldn’t stop talking about how beautiful the rooms and bathrooms were! We cannot wait to come back to New Park in the future to spend a weekend and even have plans to celebrate my parents 40th anniversary there in a few years. Thank you for everything, Sara!

Loved this place! We were looking for a getaway that wasn’t a typical hotel room and this is just what we needed. The lodging is like little cottages. We were in the Finger Lakes unit, which had a bedroom on each side (no doors, but could use a portable divider if desired) Countertop, sink, refrigerator and bathroom between the two bedrooms. All unique décor. Bathroom was extremely unique. Mosaic of the Finger Lakes in the shower, motion activated and heated toilet seat and bidet. Unique community room with piano, drum set, jukebox, games, books, large table and fireplace in the middle of the room. Lots of windows with view of outdoors. Beautiful outdoor décor with firepit area. Woods in the back for hiking. Nothing within walking distance otherwise, but many options not too far away in Ithaca. Hostess/owner was very friendly. She lit a fire for us in the fireplace in the evening. Made to order breakfast in the community room was very enjoyable.

My husband and I drove up to the finger lakes area for my aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary. Finding this gem of a place ensured we had the perfect romantic getaway in the midst of a whole lot of family time. We stayed in Suite 119 and I believe we had the whole compound to ourselves. The rates were extremely reasonable and they had everything we could possibly want set up for us in the Wish Room-coffee, tea, hot chocolate, wine, almond milk, snacks, waffle makers, s'mores fixings,etc. My husband and I both loved the room from the awesome art to the fireplace to the huge soaking tub and shower. We both wanted to move in permanently! Vicki made it incredibly easy to order breakfast in the morning, which was made to order, and she even offered to bring it to us in our room. We are definitely coming back next time we visit family and we only wish we could have stayed longer

I can’t say enough good things. The rooms were absolutely stunning, the grounds are beautiful and the staff and owner are so accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure our weekend stay was perfect. They are dog friendly, and we had a fabulous time. You won’t find a place quite like this, the experience is one of a kind.
