This bed and breakfast was a bit like visiting an eccentric aunt. While overall we had a good experience, it would not be to everyone's taste. But if you bring an open mind and some allergy medication (our room was a bit dusty, and full of fabrics, ribbons, books, paper, many dust catchers) you are in for a different experience. The owner was friendly and welcoming and after showing us to the room she felt most suited us, we were left to come and go as we pleased, no pressures. Breakfasts were delicious and generous, served on the balcony with great views. We felt relaxed enough to go and sit up there after sight-seeing as our room did not have a view. We were on the 'fireplace level' and the room was absolutely huge, with many corners to explore. There were tables with games, or paper crafts, and books galore. We had an assortment of sofas and chairs and throws and pillows and no time to be bored with so much to look at. And a hammock, right in the room. Definitely the first time we have had a hammock in the room -- and there was lots of room to spare, so we were not cramped! Beds were comfortable, though as mentioned there was a slightly 'musty/dusty' feel to our space (though to be fair it was a very humid hot summer weekend). There were nearby trails including a long stair case climb down to the lakefront which is entirely worth doing as the views there are stunning. Not too far a drive from Ithaca and nearby state parks.
