Convenient west end location in Ithaca. One parking spot for guest.
This house is close to everything. The bedroom is comfortable and spacious.
Hosts live upstairs and guests will have their privacy. We are between two roads leading out of Ithaca. The suite is located in the back of the house and there is a moderate amount of traffic noise at times from the back porch.

The space
The entrance to this suite is from the back porch. The parking lot is to the right of the house with a sidewalk leading to the back door.

When you enter the space, there is a kitchenette with complimentary water, hot drinks and scones. NEW: Out of concern for the environment, we discontinued providing plastic single/use water bottles and now have a hot/cold water dispenser.

Continuing into the bedroom you'll find a queen size bed, a Queen Anne desk, cable TV, a luggage stand, two comfy chairs, a full length mirror and an open closet.

The bathroom has all the essentials.

Where you’ll be

Ithaca, New York, United States

Our Airbnb is located on West Hill in Ithaca. Within walking distance are restaurants, Island Fitness Center, the Inlet with a place to rent kayaks, canoes and paddle boards. We are only a few minutes from Wegmans (America's favorite grocery store!) and many of the big box stores. If "big box" is not your style, it's a 20 minute walk to The Commons where there are many local mom and pop establishments, as well as Moosewood Restaurant of Moosewood cookbook fame. Ithaca has a good bus system and you can catch a bus across the street from our house at 20 minutes before the hour.

We are Joan and Nelson Reppert, a retired couple (well, almost, because I teach piano to 10 students in our home.**See below for piano teaching schedule). We chose Ithaca for our retirement because it's a little diamond in the middle of Upstate New York, with arts and outdoor activities at our beck and call! The Finger Lakes region has been our home almost all of our lives. Our wonderful children and grandchildren live here and also in the Boston area. We love to travel. Most recently we have spent time visiting our friend in Switzerland. Central Europe and the UK are favorite destinations. In the US, we enjoy taking long trips by car, and short trips around the Northeast, specifically New England. As Airbnb hosts, we love making our guest suite comfy and visually appealing. It's full of books and a comfy chair in which to read them. There's a porch swing right outside the door and a view of Cornell University on the opposite hill. Ithaca has been in the top 10 small cities and college towns in the US. Come visit and see for yourself! ** During the months of September through June, my piano teaching hours are Monday through Thursday afternoons, from 3 - 5 pm. It varies from day to day. You need to know this because the piano is directly above our Airbnb guest space.

>>Normally, we will greet you at the front door and take you around and down the sidewalk to your private entrance. You will be shown your living space, will be given your key and we are more than glad to offer advice for getting around the area. From that point on, you are on your own, with assurance that we will be available for help via phone (call or text) at any point during your stay. In the desk and near the comfy chairs are maps and brochures, and a list of nearby restaurants.
