Up in the area for an anniversary weekend we decided to stay at the Federal House B&B for 2 nights. Actually our 6 th visit here and second under the new owners Donna and Michael. This is a great smaller B&B with 4 rooms. It is situated a short 10 minute drive to Ithaca. We like to stay here outside of Ithaca where it is peaceful and quiet but still close enough to everything. It is located a short one minute walk to a nice waterfall and park. You can hear the waterfall from our bedroom and that was really awesome. Our room and the entire place was immaculate. The bed was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It has AC but you don't really need it at least not this past weekend. Our room had a recent renovation to the bathroom and it really was nice with the new shower. Donna is a great host and really helps make your stay pleasant. Nice breakfasts and all guests eat at the same table which allows for great conversation. Coffee and munchies in the PM is a nice touch. What can we say we love this B&B. You will too. Thanks Donna for another wonderful stay. See you soon.
