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!
Painstakingly resotred and wonderfully appointed bed and breakfast, hostess with the mostess.... delicious and healthy breakfast. Twin bed in addition to the large bed in at least two of the bedrooms.
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!…
