We are situated right in the heart of Ithaca, central to both Cornell University, Ithaca College, and the downtown area. A short walk to the Ithaca Commons, shops, restaurants, and public transport. Enjoy a stay in our modern and comfortable home.

The space

We're excited to welcome you into our home! It’s a great example of the Craftsman American Four-Square style: modern, comfortable, and bright.
The first floor includes a living room, dining room, and well-equipped kitchen (we love to cook!), all of which you’re welcome to use during your stay. There’s a half-bathroom on the first floor and a full bathroom on the second floor, both of which are shared between ourselves and our guests.
The Plum bedroom is a large master bedroom with a very comfortable queen mattress, lots of morning light, and modern furnishings. Comfortably sleeps one or two. Full size closet and full length mirror for your use.

Guest access

You are welcome to hang out and use our kitchen, living room, dining room, and porch -- and of course the bathroom, too. Our bedroom is on the third floor, providing all of us with ample privacy.
If you are staying with us less than five days, kitchen access is limited to light use.
You’re welcome to use all the amenities of the house while you’re here, including the wifi and the washer and dryer.

Interaction with guests

While we love hosting and meeting new people, we also understand that sometimes you just want a little alone time. You are welcome to join us for a meal, enjoy a lovely beverage and chat, or curl up by yourself in your room with a good book. Whatever your preference, we want you to be as comfortable as possible while staying in our home.

Other things to note

We have a very friendly, well behaved, orange-creamsicle-colored kitty (Thomas) who is a fan of laps. He will try to snuggle you into giving him more food … but don't fall for it!
We're required to collect NYS sales tax (8%); it is included in our rate, so no worries about a hidden fee from us. Airbnb collects the Tompkins County 3% occupancy tax, which should be included in your overall costs.

I had a very comfortable stay at Dan and David's house. They were very welcoming and kind, offering lots of recommendations of things to do during my (too short) stay in Ithaca. I truly wish I could've stayed longer as it was so pleasant staying with them and the town is really pretty and fun. They provided lovely small breakfast treats and a fine selection of teas and always a full kettle, ready to go. The bed was especially comfortable and the bedroom was very spacious. I felt relaxed and at home which is all you want when you're on the road. I highly recommend staying at Dan and David's place.

We only had the briefest of time with Dan and Dave which is a pity because they seemed to be a fun couple who would be excellent company. We had excellent detailed instructions and communication in the run up to our stay. Everything was exactly as described with a very comfortable room - quiet too even on a holiday weekend. This place is minutes from the centre of Ithaca with bars and places to eat and, although parking is difficult, we managed to park almost outside. it a clean and convenient location, full of character.

Dan and David were really welcoming to us. They left us baked goods and tea and coffee in the mornings, and gave us great recommendations and conversation. Very nice guys with a sweet cat, and their house is beautiful and so stylish. The location is great--an easy walk to the Commons with all of its restaurants, as well as buses up to Cornell. Would love to stay with them again when I visit Ithaca next.

Dan and David were excellent hosts. We rarely crossed paths because we were out and about, but everything was excellent! A lovely house with every amenity you could ask for, and a great cat, to boot!

We had a great stay at Dan & David's place in Ithaca! The accommodations were very nice and suited our needs perfectly for a weekend getaway stay. The bed was especially comfortable, and the coffee and tea service (French press coffee, delicious!) in the morning was a special touch. All communication was very smooth throughout the process, and the keypad lock made check-in and entry/exit very convenient. When we left, I accidentally left a key behind, and the hosts made an extra effort to make sure I came back for it before leaving town. I highly recommend Dan & David and would totally stay with them again!

My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay for the weekend while we were in town to visit with friends. This was also our first air b&b and I must say, they have set the bar high! Upon arrival we had the pleasure of meeting Thomas, probably the friendliest and most relaxed cat I have ever encountered, after introductions they walked us through the living space, gave us directions and information on how to use everything we would need in their home, they had new towels and water laid out in our very clean room for us, gave us great recommendations for places in Ithaca to visit and directions into town. Every morning we woke up to a tasty spread of muffins and tea in the kitchen which was very much appreciate after a few late nights :) Throughout our time there Dan & David were super welcoming and friendly, they made us feel right at home. If we are ever back in the area this is the place we will be staying! I highly highly recommend this air b&b for any/all travelers. Dan & David's exceeded our expectations. We are truly grateful for their hospitality. Thank you both for a great experience!

Beautiful historic home in the heart of Ithaca, close to everything. Exactly how Dan and David (and Thomas the cat too) explained it. Very friendly hosts who I enjoyed visiting with during my stay. Great experience; will stay again.
