Our 100 year old home is in the heart of downtown Ithaca. Creative design, interesting art, fun antiques, and rich with character. We provide a clean, safe, friendly and convenient place from which to explore Ithaca and Central NY.

The space

You will find your private room to be comfortable and clean with fresh filtered water, a double/full size bed and fun antique furniture. Located on the second floor, room amenities include a dresser, mirror, nightstand, reading chair and lamps. We provide clean sheets, towels, a robe and slippers. The closet has enough room to hang anything you might need and to store a moderate amount of luggage.

Shared bathroom is only feet away with a large antique clawfoot tub, spacious layout, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer and towels. The half bathroom is located on the first floor, with hairdryer, iron and ironing board.

Guests have access to the first and second floor of our home, and share the full bathroom on the second floor and the half bathroom on the first floor. We (Alexis and Mark) also live here and have our own private room and bathroom.

This is a 100 year old home and sometimes you may hear other guests walking upstairs. It's likely that most of the time you won't hear anyone, but it is something to be aware of.

Guest access

Guests are provided a key to use during their stay. In addition to a furnished bedroom and central location, you will enjoy the comfort of our historic home w/ hardwood floors, complimentary morning coffee and tea in a beautiful kitchen, 1.5 baths, and weather permitting, you can relax on our front porch or in our lovely little backyard garden.

Free WIFI is accessible in the entire house, porch and backyard. For those staying less than five days, kitchen use is limited to morning coffee and tea service. Laundry facilities are available for long term guests.

Interaction with guests

We believe that check in should be as easy, simple, and stress free as possible and strive to make it so. We live here so depending on scheduling you may or may not see us or another guest come and go. Otherwise this should be considered a private space and the level of interaction is up to you. We are always happy to answer any questions that guests may have about the house, area, getting around, tours, etc. Just ask!

Other things to note

We want to be sure that our guests are happy with their accommodations. Our home is a good fit for people that like staying with others and appreciate what a city location have to offer. While there is a good amount of privacy here it is good to keep in mind that you are staying in a bedroom in our home that we also live in with other guests. Our goal is to offer a clean, safe, friendly and affordable place for visitors. It is much different (and we think more interesting, charming and fun) than staying in a hotel, traditional bed and breakfast or a private apartment. If this sounds like something that is a good fit for you, our family would be so happy to host you and yours.

The house was a comfortable cosy home, the room was adequate for our needs, Alexis and Mark seem very nice hosts but our stay was very brief and we wish we could have got to know them better, but like us we just did'nt seem to find the time to chat.

Loved this house, lots of interesting books and things to look at and a friendly dog. Although we only briefly met Alexis and Mark they are available if you need anything and make you feel welcome in their home. Great hosts! Wish we could have stayed longer.

This place was awesome. Super close to everything we needed, the communication was quick and efficient. The place itself was super clean and had everything we (URL HIDDEN) convenient. The soaking tub in the bathroom was just amazing. I would definitely go back and recommended this place to other travelers.

A lovely couple with an even more lovely home. A great location if you're looking to explore what downtown Ithaca has to offer while having a place that feels like home to go back to afterwards.
