The main house is absolutely gorgeous, and is located right in downtown Ithaca. Lynette, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful and gracious. She helped recommend restaurants and places to visit in the area, gave us excellent directions, and even helped us check in for our Delta flight the next day (and print our boarding passes).
The breakfast was fantastic - a truly gourmet experience. Our room was in the separate carriage house, which has less character than the main house, but was still comfortable. A DVD player in the room would have been a nice touch, but the TV and cable service were very good. There are a lot of Cornell students living in the immediate area, and they are out and about until well into the evening.

- Located in the heart of downtown Ithaca, is the award winning William Henry Miller Inn. Built by Cornell University's first architecture student, the details are stunning--chestnut woodwork, Tiffany stained glass, original shutters. Our full breakfast features all homemade breads and English Muffins and our evening dessert buffet is the perfect way to end the day. ... more less
