“Elegance and Comfort in Ithaca”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

This B&B is well run, spotless and welcoming. It is situated 5 minutes from the Cornell campus and 10 from the downtown area. The bedroom we stayed in, "Victoria", had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The bathroom was large and well-appointed.
The hostess, Zeda, was warm, friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was served on fine china, silver and crystal. My only wish was that breakfast, although tasty, would have had a bit more protein. I highly recommend this B&B.

My girlfriend and I just stayed here. We had a wonderful time. The home is amazing. The gardens are exquisite. Zetta, the inn keeper, is a kind person who shared her home, her stories and her delicious cooking with us. We felt welcomed and cared for while visiting. The location is perfect because you are close to everything that Ithaca has to offer. We strongly recommend that you stay here when visiting Ithaca!

My husband and I stayed at the Hound and Hare during our daughter's college orientation. We found it very welcoming from the decorative outdoor lights that greeted is on a very foggy night to the extremely well kept and beautifully decorated interior to the placid porch and gardens outside the dining room where we had breakfast. The website photos are accurate. I look forward to more stays here during my daughters college years! Thank you Zetta.

An absolute delight; Zetta is the best. Plus her back porch and private spacious gardens with pond and sitting area - WOW. Zetta's living room, dining area, and sitting room are works of love. The three upstairs bedrooms have it all. We stayed in the ensuite for two (half-way up her heavily carpeted stairs): quiet, super comfortable, delightfully decorated, and has both a roomy closet and a roomy well-designed bathroom. Plus she is an excellent cook!

We also saw Zetta's two-room suite, which appeared ideal for a family of four.

My husband & I stayed here for our anniversary, and it was a wonderful experience. The home & rooms are beautifully decorated & immaculate. we stayed in the "Victoria", which was lovely and had a very large & elegant bathroom. Even though it was rainy, we were able to walk outside a bit and see the lovely gardens, pond & fountain. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the morning. Zetta was very friendly & delightful to talk to, and made a delicious breakfast. It was very quiet and peaceful, yet close driving distance to places of interest. We would highly recommend the Hound and Hare!

Convenient to Cornell, Ithaca College, Cayuga lake etc. Very good value for your money! Delicious breakfast, beautiful and quiet grounds. I will came back at least once a year. The hostess, Zetta, is very knowledgeable about the various places of interest around Ithaca, and is an engageing person!
