My husband and I traveled to the area for our first anniversary. The alley house was easy to find and a nice quiet street. Loved the extra special accommodations the personal touches of leaving us muffins, eggs, orange juice, and fruit for our stay! This kind of hospitality you just can't get at a hotel. The alley house was pretty clean the bathroom could use a little deep clean but can't all of our bathrooms! Furniture was super comfy and we were able to make ourselves at home!
Might I suggest a guest book, we have stayed at several air bnb type places and always love reading about different people that they have stayed there. As Internet loving people we were able to find our way to places that intrest us but it would add a great touch to recommend your favorite local restaurant or hiking trail to your guests! Just an idea!
Thanks so much for the stay!
Loved this cozy little apartment tucked behind the owners home. Perfect location near enough to downtown Ithaca but far enough away to be out of the student hub-bub. Enjoyed waking to the sound of birds, even a pileated woodpecker! Thanks for a lovely stay.

On my recent visit to the Ithaca area, I chose to stay at Alley House. The accommodations were comfortable, spotless and delightful. The added niceties were a pleasant surprise and made my stay a little more enjoyable. The next time I need to stay in Ithaca, I will certainly try to make a reservation at Alley House.

Bed was super comfortable but window AC was too small for large bedroom and couldn't cool off the room especially since there was a huge gap under door so air escaped into kitchen. Plus the AC wad so noisy I put a pillow over my head to try and sleep. Another night I used the fan but again that was way too small and noisy. So I wouldn't recommend staying here in the warmer months--- hopefully the heat works well and is not so noisy.
Another problem was the shower--- the cold water was just a trickle so you could only turn on the hot water a little bit otherwise you'd get scalded. This made for insufficient water pressure to wash your hair properly.
The frig was tiny with a freezer only capable of holding ice cube trays. Would be nice to have a freezer to put ice cream in. There's no laundry but Chris washed my 3 items of clothing since my suitcase got lost and I only had one outfit to wear.
The wooden deck and outside yard was beautiful.
