“The innkeepers are warm and hospitable”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

My husband and I have been to the Bostwick House twice so far. First to celebrate our wedding and more recently to celebrate my birthday. We loved our experience both times and plan to return. It is only a 5 minute or so drive from downtown Ithaca and is excellent value for money compared to some of the other bed and breakfasts we looked at. The innkeepers, Mary Rose and Dave, are wonderful, warm and creative people who have lovingly restored the house which is one of the oldest houses in Tompkins County. Mary Rose has great suggestions for things to do in the area as she is very involved in the local community, and she always has entertaining stories to share about the area. The house is filled with antiques and the innkeepers' artwork. We have stayed in both the Library room and the Van Dorn room. We preferred the Library room since we had our own bathroom, but all the other rooms are equally lovely. Breakfasts are a delicious treat and it's fun to interact with the hosts and other guests. Location is excellent. Trumansburg is about 20 minutes away and Ithaca is 5-10 minutes away by car. We can't wait to go back. If you are looking for an intimate bed and breakfast experience, this is it!

My son and I stayed at Bostwick House over the weekend to visit my daughter at Cornell. Though about 5 or 6 miles out of town and from the university, it was worth the distance. Lovely home, very comfortable, and the breakfasts were wonderful. Maryrose was friendly, informative and just a delightful hostess all around. Though previously I preferred to be downtown or at the Statler Hotel on campus, I'm sure I'll go back to Bostwick House during future visits.

What's not to like about this bucolic B&B and its charming owners? Maryrose and Dave take exquisite care of every detail from the creative and artistic touches in the rooms to the farm fresh delectable breakfasts served each morning. Whether it's a recommendation for a fabulous restaurant or local winery, directions to one of the many amazing nearby state parks, Maryrose and Dave will enthusiastically make sure your stay is memorable. Bostwick House, while on the outskirts of Ithaca, is an easy fifteen-minute drive to town, Cornell and an abundance of spectacular scenery. Ithaca is gorges and Bostwick House is gorgeous. It's the perfect place to stay when you visit Ithaca.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs share bath but both are lovely.
