My husband and I visited Ithaca for the first time for a get-away weekend. We are so happy we found The Hound and the Hare. The location is in the non-student area of Ithaca, about a 5-10 minute drive to Cornell University and/or the city's commons, where there are shops and restaurants. Our room was comfortable and clean and quiet. No tv in the room, but who needs tv if you have your ipad and have things to do? (There was a tv in the library, where we sipped tea in the afternoons between visits to the farmer's market and wineries.) Zetta was a lovely host and a superb cook. We enjoyed getting to know the other guests over breakfast each morning. The property is beautiful. If the weather were warmer, we would have been out on the back porch enjoying her yard.
