Just want to let you know that her review was written in spite. She never stayed at the B & B. Please disregard it and put stock in the reviews by people who actually stayed there. You will have a pleasant stay and the best breakfasts at Amazing Grace.

Stayed November 2013, travelled solo

Alicia was such a lovely hostess. We enjoyed talking with her over breakfast and learning about her life in Ithaca. The conversations focused on so many interesting topics - we were sorry that we had to get up from the table and move on with our day.

lovely spot for nature and animal lovers. house is definitely 'antiquey' and the conversations with alicia were broad and interesting. my husband and i really appreciated the visit as a quintessential ithaca re-immersion, having been away for many years. alicia prepared amazingly delicious and beautiful breakfasts both mornings, with her own farm fresh eggs, fruit preserves and vegetables grown on her land.

Room Tip: rooms with two twin beds are nice for traveling with children.

I was in Ithaca in June to attend a course at Cornell University and a friend came to meet me for the weekend. It was High School graduation weekend and most accommodations were filled. We were able to get a reservation at Amazing Grace B&B at the last minute and had a cozy room with twin beds. Alicia was a gracious hostess, showing us in and then leaving to tend to her horses.

Breakfast in the morning was hearty - a full plate of fresh fruit, juice, pancakes with strawberries, yogurt & syrup and very crispy bacon.

We found the accommodations suitable for our needs, but there were a few things to note that may bother some: one window in our room did not have a screen, so we were not able to get a cross draft, there appeared to be wireless, but we could not find the access key written down, and were not able to find Alicia in the evening again after she let us in, and there was not a way to lock our bedroom door when we left the room. As we knew that the owner had left the house unlocked, we just took our laptops and my passport with us when we went out...

Listening to the crow of the rooster in the morning and looking at the horses in the pasture out our window gave us an authentic farm feeling, and Alicia is charming and knows so much about Ithaca and the Finger Lake region!

My wife and I visited Ithaca in mid-October 2010. When we talked to the owner to book the Amazing Grace Bed and Breakfast, the owner seemed friendly and we were excited about our stay. However, we were not excited at all upon arrival.

The location was 15 minutes away from Cornell's campus and even further from Ithaca Commons. At the B&B, there wasn't enough room for all cars to park in the driveway and cars had to park on grass along the road.

We went in the front door and searched for our room. The owner was not there and did not leave a note. The only empty room that we found had dirty, stained sheets and had no lock on the door. With the front door unlocked and no locks on room doors, we did not feel comfortable leaving our belongings in the room while we spent time in Ithaca during the day.

Also, the room shared one bathroom with three rooms (6 people). Apparently, there was another bathroom available on a different floor, but realistically the three rooms on the second floor shared one bathroom.

My wife and I were not comfortable with the stained sheets, one bathroom shared among 6 people, and no locks on doors so we called the owner to cancel. We explained our concerns to the owner and, as part of the owner's rude response, she informed us that we should not worry about the lack of locks because we couldn't possibly have any belongings worth stealing. The owner said this to us even though we never even met her face to face.

My son and I were visiting Ithaca College and needed a room with two beds; Alicia "shuffled" her guests around to accommodate us. We arrived late and hungry and promptly left to go find a restaurant. When we returned, around 11:00 p.m., Alicia was waiting with a bonfire blazing in a pasture behind the house. We crossed the field and met up with Alicia's two horses, who joined us for a late night bonfire and star gazing. My son and I slept like rocks in twin beds upstairs, where the only thing you could hear was quiet. Breakfast consisted of homemade jam, concord grapes and steamed asparagus. This is the sort of experience you would never find at a regular hotel. If you want to get off the beaten track, try something different, and meet a very original hostess, give this place a try.

Pond fringed with iris, patched with waterlilies: my husband and 7-year-old swam in it every morning and evening. Fireflies and bonfire, rolling wooded hills beyond. Enormous old oak tree with swings for the children. Chickens providing fresh eggs for breakfast, and soon there will be sheep for cheese. Our host Alicia took my son out on her horse, showed him newts and frogs; he was in heaven. And we were allowed to stay with a baby; so unusual. Beautiful old house, broad oak plank floor. Large comfortable beds on antique frames, small old-fashioned windows with trees beyond. Utterly comfortable.
