My husband and I discovered Mary Hunt House B&B while looking for a B&B to stay at close to Dryden. We were thrilled to find this charming B&B and book a 3- night stay. This B&B is fabulous as it is clean, charmingly decorated and a beautifully restored Greek Revival home. Carol is very welcoming, charming and a perfect B&B host! We stayed upstairs in Rachels Room and it offered us everything that we needed. The old advertising cards nicely framed were fun to read and the room itself was bright and airy. The linens were freshly pressed and very lovely. The guest bathroom was private, and located on the 1st floor of the house. This was not an issue for us in the least! Carol's breakfasts were freshly prepared and perfect every morning. There is a huge wrap around porch comfortably furnished and a wonderful spot to read a book and watch all varieties of birds visiting the numerous feeders. This B&B will be our "go to" spot whenever we visit our family there. I too, am a B&B owner that notices everything! This little jewel receives a hearty 5 stars from us!

Very relaxing, restful 3-day stay in this gorgeous, well-preserved 200 year-old country house. Carol has really dialed it in; she has a fine aesthetic sense in the appointments, furnishing, and painting of the place. There's no sense of "stuff just put up on the wall because it's old." She's very knowledgeable about every square inch of the place and will reveal intriguing backgrounds for everything there, say, the vintage framed photos, for example. Zero knick-knackery or frilly excess. I felt like I was in an Andrew Wyeth painting. Comfort? I wanted to buy the bed. Pleasant chairs in the room to sit and read in, and the room was plenty spacious. The place was squeaky clean. She was very Covid-conscious, which I very much appreciated. Breakfasts verged on gourmet, and she accommodated my dietary requests quite well. Carol is a longtime resident of the area and very knowledgeable regarding what to do around Ithaca - she knows the little details and histories. Folks should know that my Android phone didn't have service there, starting at about 1/4 mile approaching the property from Ithaca. The place is in the country! It can be a blessing to be rid of those infernal things for a while, anyway. I-Phoners might not have that problem. Also, the place is on a small, two-lane highway, and light sleepers might want to bring noise-canceling headphones. If you're a heavy sleeper or an early riser, it won't be a problem. These are minor quibbles and wouldn't stop me from staying there again. In fact, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Carol Barra's Mary Hunt House B and B, give it the highest recommendations, and would stay there again in a New York minute!

Carol is the loveliest hostess you can imagine. She’s fun, smart, kind, knowledgeable about the area, genuinely interested in people, and one heck of a cook. Her home is beautiful and a truly delightful place to stay. The location was the perfect home base from which to explore Ithaca - quiet and out of the way enough to be truly relaxing, but only a ten minute drive or so into town. We loved our stay in Ellen’s Room and can’t wait to return someday!

We enjoyed two comfortable nights in Mary's Suite! It is a perfect location to explore all Ithaca has to offer and a comfortable drive to Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame. This B & B offered everything for which we could possibly hope. Carol is a delightful hostess, provided delicious breakfasts, a relaxing atmosphere, and great conversation. She is a life-long collector who has filled her home with lovely things that make a warm and inviting home. The wrap-around porch with views of multiple bird feeders, a lovely brook and gorgeous flowers were all a bonus!

It was a pleasure having you and your husband stay with me this past weekend. I enjoyed getting to know you and hear about your ongoing renovation at your house in Pennsylvania. I hope if you come back this way, you will plan to stay at the Mary Hunt House B&B again.

We have been coming for four yrs to this wonderful bed &breakfast for many reasons: very close to the colleges yet not in the town, a great hostess, excellent breakfast (her vegetable quiche is the best), elegant yet simple furnishings in the spirit of this 200 hundred year house. Very comfortable beds. Spotless. You will enjoy your stay.

We spent two wonderful days in Ithaca and stayed at Mary Hunt House B&B. The room couldn't be better. It was nice and cozy, beautifully decorated and everything we needed. Carol prepared delicious breakfasts ... and since I'm Gluten Free ... I appreciated her consideration tremendously. The birds were a bonus. I never expected to be greeted by a Pileated woodpecker as we drove in. The birds were very cooperative and a delight to photograph.

What a lovely visit we had to Ithaca to visit our daughter for Cornell Family Weekend! It’s always difficult to find accommodations for these big college weekends, but somehow stars aligned and we scored the Mary Hunt House. Host Carol Barra is just awesome. Friendly and accommodating as can be. The home and accommodations are right out of a magazine. For Floridians like us, it is so nice and refreshing to experience seasons and this home gave us that beautiful “up north” feel we were seeking. The rooms were clean and cozy. The beds are SO comfortable especially with the fluffy down covers! Meals were yummy and presented very nice. Love the big bathroom downstairs... Jacuzzi tub and shower with lots of space to get ready! We enjoyed Carol the host so much we even went to the local Apple Fest she was organizing. All around an amazing stay! Book it! You won’t regret!

My son and I made a visit to Cornell and stayed at the Mary Hunt House. The location was convenient, about 10 minutes to Cornell. The room was comfortable as was the bed. Carol was very welcoming. Breakfast included fresh fruit, muffins, coffee, tea, french toast. All very yummy. My son enjoyed searching for fossils along the stream behind the house. We hiked at Buttermilk Falls which was beautiful. We hope to go back next year and stay again and do some more hiking. The room is perfect for a couple and one child.
