Recently stayed at this hotel for a 2 night stay, while my son attended a Cornell admitted students event. Michael was a gracious host and the my room was clean, comfortable and the bed and bedding extremely comfortable! I got a very last minute reservation, so I got the Oak Room, which was just by the kitchen, but Michael made me aware of this prior to my booking. I am an early riser, so the 7 am busting in the kitchen didn't really bother me - they made a concerted effort to keep their noise to a minimum, which I very much appreciated! Breakfast was wonderful and the people staying at the hotel were interesting and fun to talk to! Michael was so helpful in getting us a reservation at a downtown Ithaca hotel on a busy Friday night as well - thank you Michael! Would definitely recommend staying here whenever you are in Ithaca, NY!

The common areas are comfortable and homey, accented by Michael’s sense of whimsy. A chef in his own right, Michael creates and prepares a unique menu comprised of organic and vegan ingredients that are primarily locally grown and harvested. An ecclectic combination of rustic and refined, sophisticated and casual, modern yet remote, Private Hotel and Pure Food appeals to the discerning individual who desires high end appointments, the finest in bedding and linen, and the world’s freshest and healthiest food ... all provided in a serene, tranquil environment. ... more less
