I recently stayed at the William Henry Miller inn and could not have asked for a better experience. Lynnette, the inkeeper, is very warm, attentive and welcoming and has thought of every little detail to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The house itself is magnificent and almost unchanged from its original design including magnificent woodwork and richly-colored stained-glass windows. The rooms are quiet, spacious and well-appointed and the location can't be beat. The house is steps from the Ithaca Commons and more intrepid souls can even make the hike on foot up (up, up, up) Buffalo Street to the Cornell campus. You're welcomed back each night with scrumptious homemade desserts and begin each day with a breakfast so hearty that my boyfriend and I never even ate lunch any day we were there! There is off-street parking, which is always a plus in a downtown area. I can't wait to return!
