If you in need of relaxation this is the place, beds are beyond comfy, staff is always welcoming and the spa is wonderful. Love this place to unwind, we had a wonderful walk on the grounds and the wine trail is close by, very convenient, we had a great time as always.

I've stayed here on three occasions and it is consistently nice. The inn is a short drive out of Ithaca, in a lovely rural setting. Our rooms have all been clean and quiet. We love going outside to watch the fireflies after dark!

Our stay went along without any issues and the staff was perfectly friendly, however both the grounds and the rooms felt in desperate need of some attention. The bathroom had a distinct dated feel, with shoddy paint touch up with work, severely old ceiling tiles and water pressure that would rival a trickle. We have stayed on this property several times before, however this time the 70's wallpaper finally started to creep us out! Please renovate and we'll be back.

We stayed two nights over the July 4th weekend. The property is large and pleasant - several outdoor spots to just sit and enjoy the surroundings. It is pretty easy to walk to the Buttermilk Falls from the property.

The room was clean and the bed comfortable. A copy of a short story written by the owner was put on the bed which was a quick interesting read. Water pressure in the shower was nice. However, the grout surrounding the bathtub and on the bathroom floor probably could use some deep cleaning or renewal. It was not dirty but could be improved.

A small thing that would be nice to have in the room - a bottle opener. We were going to try the local ginger ale in the minibar but was unable to open the bottle. Since many people come to the Finger Lakes region to visit the wineries, a bottle opener in the room may come in handy.

We can definitely see ourselves staying in the hotel again when visiting the area in the future.

Very relaxing. Staff was friendly and professional. This is our 2nd stay and we will certainly go back. (PS I chose friends over family as the type of trip below even though we are sisters ) Would like to go sometime with my husband.

The bed is very comfortable, breakfast is yummy & the spa is great.

Here are the facts:
- the decor is like a high- end nursing home. Room has zero charm.
- no housekeeping came to make up our room... We were out of the room all day, 9 hrs AND had a cot delivered. No one noticed that housekeeping had missed the room?
- no water. We were SO thirsty. Only wine glasses in the room, no bottled water, overnight was tough, as we like to drink water.
- too few waitstaff at breakfast. Waited forever. Super- slow.

There are loads of places to stay in Ithaca, some I'm sure, more conveniently located and warmer than this place.

My only disappointment is that we did not have more than one night here. The room was huge - with two king beds and lots of space. It was also clean and had a great view of the surrounding area. it's a very short drive from Ithaca itself, and you can hike directly to Buttermilk Falls. Breakfast was a treat - cup of fresh fruit, struedel, two eggs, ham, potatoes, toast and local grape juice for just $13. This is a great choice of you are visiting Ithaca.
