I recently stayed at the Inn on Columbia and had a peaceful and pleasant time. I was in the blue room, which is located in an adjunct property around the corner from the main building. It was spacious, immaculately clean and very comfortable. I was greeted warmly by the owners and given detailed directions and recommendations about Ithaca and my... More

We stayed at the Hudson Apartment which is a satellite facility of the Inn on Columbia. We had a lovely two bedroom apartment with one bath and a living room with a kitchenette. The decor was a mixture of modern and traditional. The beds were comfortable with good linens and there were plenty of towels. Each morning we had a... More

The music was bad and the beer was off but the Inn on Columbia made it all worth while. We recently stayed overnight in Ithaca, NY to see music at one of the local venues. Because my son was not available to watch the dog we brought him with us. ($25 extra, which appears to be a standard cost for... More

We stayed at the Inn in October (IC's homecoming) in the Villa Madeline on Aurora. The room was super comfortable with a big en suite bathroom. Breakfast included muffins, fruit, yogurt, and scones in a ribboned box with a cheerful "Good mornin!" on the label. The house was very convenient to the Commons and the rest of downtown (10 minute... More

We just a lovely weekend at one of their properties. The rooms are clean. The breakfast is fresh and lovely. Within walking distance of downtown. A short drive to... More

We stayed at this BNB on our trip to Upstate NY. This inn is in a great location. Me and my husband actually considered the breakfasts we had here as some of the best food we had on this trip. We were given options to choose from. All the fruits and juices were fresh and local. Our room and bathroom... More

We have stayed with Kenn and Madeline Young at several of the inn's locations and have always been comfortable and well attended. This particular trip was a family vacation to attend my daughter's graduation. Booking was accomodated with efficiency and attention to the ease and delight of our stay: restaurant suggestions and even an offer to make reservations, directions and... More

We were looking for a place to stay, with doggy, to help break up our drive home from Vermont and Ithaca seemed to fit the bill. The Inn on Columbia advertised on their web site as "Dog-Friendly", so we gave them a call and were booked into The Cottage, one of their satellite properties for one night. We arrived a... More

We had a family wedding in Ithaca so 10 adults and 10 kids had to find the best place to stay for a weekend. Villa Madeline and Maison Mango provided perfect accommodations for our large group. The fridge was stocked with coffee, creamer, milk, soy milk, juice and yogurt . Oatmeal and granola were on the counter and a basket... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night of our honeymoon. It was probably the most relaxing room we stayed in, and we would recommend Inn on Columbia to anyone else looking for the relaxing atmosphere of a B&B with lots of privacy. We stayed here as a a last minute switch -- the hotel we booked was so... More
