Yes, it's older and somewhat rustic, but I'm glad we found this place. We needed a place to stay a night before heading to our campsite at Taughannock Falls State Park. Our room was large and convenient, and he location is great - close to Buttermilk Falls State Park and Ithaca, both of which we visited from here. It bills itself as dog-friendly, which it certainly is, with a play area with signs saying "pets only allowed on play equipment." But we didn't have a pet with us. We were drawn by two things: the very reasonable room rates and that fact that each room in our building has a bird feeder right outside the window. We spent an hour or so looking for birds around the grounds in the morning and found many. The staff were very friendly and allowed us to leave our pop-up camper parked there after we checked out so we could get breakfast and explore Buttermilk Falls a bit. The only drawbacks were that one of us had a little discomfort with the soft bed an it is close to busy Rt. 13. We did not notice the latter inside, however.
