#2 of 18 in Ithaca
Travellers' Choice
The award winning William Henry Miller Inn is located in the heart of downtown Ithaca. Built by Cornell University's first architecture student, the details are stunning--chestnut woodwork, Tiffany stained glass, original shutters. Our full breakfast features all homemade breads, homemade English Muffins and bagels accompanied by homemade jams. Our evening dessert buffet is the perfect way to end the day. We are happy to accommodate dietary requests. Within walking distance of fifty restaurants, Cornell University, Cascadilla Gorge and just a short hop to Ithaca College, we are really central to everything. Providing concierge service and a business center, parking is right on site. Parking and wireless are included in the rate. Proud to be a member of Select Registry and Lynnette Scofield received the Innkeeper of the Year Award by Select Registry.

The WHM is a beautiful and well-cared-for old house. Full of detail, richly furnished with antiques, it is quiet and romantic. It is also an exceedingly well organized and thoughtful environment: a perfect system of no-contact check-in, desserts delivered to your door every afternoon, coffee service downstairs, and really good breakfasts every morning. We stayed in the third-floor turret room, so there was a lot of walking up and down the stairs — but we had good water pressure, and a very quiet and comfortable room. Recommended! We will return.

We loved our stay! The Inn is very centrally located. The breakfasts were delicious and there was water, tea and other snacks available. The inn is charming. We were in room 1 which had a large bathroom and well appointed bedroom.

We booked a room w jacuzzi (I believe the most expensive room in the house), then we tried to use a jacuzzi, it was not functioning. At least we wanted to have a hot shower, NO HOT WATER !!! Also there was no one to help us. We decided to get out of bath and put bath robe , freezing and waiting for help … this is not what we expected … total disappointment.

Sorry you had a problem with our whirlpool tub. There was hot water as it would be impossible for just one room to not have hot water. We are always available 24 hours a day and my staff came right down to check out the problem and found the tub and hot water to be working fine.

Amazing place! Looks like a house I used to see in the movies, when it comes to exterior and interior both. Room that we stayed in was really spacious, with big bathroom too. It was super-clean and comfy! Breakfast is amazing and really delicious, served by friendly and charming women. We had asparagus frittata, with breakfast sausage and potatos, and french toast with a cup of fresh fruit, along with really nice coffee and orange juice. Also, the night we checked-in (self check-in works perfect, by the way!), we found 2 homemade lemon bars and cookies in our rooms. Lemon bars were the best I've ever had! Disliked · It is a bit pricey to stay in WHM Inn. But... when you think about what you get, for etc. the breakfast and dessert I mentioned, I think it is totally okay value for money.

We enjoyed a quick trip to Ithaca and having the William Henry Miller B&B as a home base was perfect! Charming, historic all things great for Victorian era buildings with modern updates!! Staff and owners were marvelous! Breakfast were filling and delicious! Thank you for a quick and much needed get away!
