My husband and I enjoyed a winter weekend stay at the Main House King during a weekend visit with our son. Our bedroom suite was quiet and very comfortable. The bath and room as well as the living and dining areas are so well designed and nicely decorated. The owners have a friendly older dog and kitty cat which we...

We spent a night at the Inn on Columbia with our college-aged kids in tow - in the Blue and Green rooms. The whole house is so spacious, comfortable and well-thought out. We appreciated the kitchen stocked with fruit, granola, yogurt and beverages. The location - a short walk to the Ithaca Commons but away from the noise and bustle...

This may change your mind about B&B's. The property is set up as separate living accommodations each with private bath and entrances. We love the large gazebo room which is a separate building in the back courtyard with a large bathroom, jacuzzi tub and heated floors. The suite has a fireplace and secluded feel. The carriage house is very nice...

Stayed here while I was in town for a wedding. It was very nice and clean. The only drawbacks were the automatic lights which are triggered by motion, so if you get up in the middle of the night the hall light turns on, temporarily blinding you and possible waking up your kids. Also the parking was a little tough....

Thank you for taking the time to post your review on Tripadvisor. I'm sorry that you had difficulty with the motion sensors as we would've been happy to show you the off/on button on each switch.

We were in town to take care of a family emergency. The Cornell homecoming made our mission extremely difficult to complete. We needed LOTS of help. Madeline and Kenn jumped right in without hesitation. Their help was indispensable and we will never forget it. Oh, and by the way, the rooms, suites, and apartment are lovely. If cookie-cutter, chain-hotel rooms...

Beautifully renovated space. We had a spacious bedroom with comfy king bed, motion detector lights, changing room/ closet/ modern bathroom and use of a lovely common room and well appointed kitchen. Best continental breakfast I've had- fridge fully stocked with fruit, yogurt, juice, and freshly baked muffins delivered the night before. Interesting antique collections, as well as several really cool...

We had a great time staying here. The stylish green room had more than enough space for us and the bed was so comfortable! The breakfast was tasty and there were plenty of vegan options provided upon our request. Love the location--just a short walk to downtown.

We stayed here for 2 nights during our multi-stop Finger Lakes vacation. What a great find! Located just a few blocks (up a large hill, mind you) from the Ithaca Commons, this charming B&B is not the traditional style. The eclectic, warm decor and unique modern design is such a fun and interesting combination. There are several different buildings that...

We decided to visit the pet-friendly Inn on Columbia for a short weekend. Our two dogs were attending as well for a Veterinarian consult at Cornell University. Needless to say with our University visit and the dogs being out of their element it was a little stressful. However, the friendly staff at Columbia was very inviting and understanding of our...

Loved our stay here. Owners were very nice. Place was clean and comfortable. We stayed in the spacious Hudson Suite. Though we did not cook, the kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed the muffins and scones that were delivered each evening for the next day's breakfast. Our friends stayed in a room in the Main house and enjoyed the cooked...
