We were attending a meeting at Cornell and tried the historic Benn Conger Inn for the first time after many years of staying in the Ithaca area. Our room in the Victorian House was spacious, attractively decorated, and very comfortable in every way. Each room had its own balcony overlooking the beautiful property. We had an outstanding dinner with a very nice wine selection, and the breakfasts were delicious and perfect in a "greenhouse" setting. The formal dining rooms are most attractive, and one includes an elegant mural. Doug and Peter were most accommodating and helpful. The main building at the Inn is a beautiful, historic Colonial Revival tastefully restored for its present use.
