About this listing

The room has a very private feeling because it is set away from other bedrooms. Also has its own entrance with a few steps to reach the car or bus stop. There is a small powder-room with your own private sink and toilette. It is very bright with many windows, I love the view into the garden and trees from the bed.

Hosts are friendly. Marion is a great cook (she let us try one of her desserts). She also had coffee for us, which was nice. Quaint but comfortable room. Private entrance is great. If you want to take a shower you need to do so in the family's bathroom which is a bit odd/uncomfortable. No TV in room, but there is wireless.

Although I didn't get to meet Marion until my final day during my stay, she was a lovely host and we had a nice chat over a cup of tea. The room was not big but cosy and I was provided a thick comforter for the chilly evenings. I would definitely recommend staying with them even if it was just for a weekend visit!

Marion received us with a delicious home made plum pie! She quickly made us feel welcome, showing us the house, and guiding on how to find great places to eat and enjoy around town. Her place is beautiful and located in a nice Ithaca neighborhood. Thank you, Marion!

We had a great stay at Marion's place. Cozy room - both private and w/ easy access to the rest of the house. Peter gave us some great recommendations upon our arrival. Place is a quick one minute drive from town, down a hill... would be tough to bike :) Thanks for the great stay and we hope to come back to Ithaca again soon.

Marion User ProfileMarion is a superhost.

I am a Waldorf (Rudolf Steiner) inspired Kindergarten teacher/ Heilpaedagoge from Germany and enjoy spending time outdoors with hiking, biking, skiing, kayaking, camping, gardening. I am also teaching cooking classes for children introducing them to wholesome foods, how and where it grows.

The dancing community in Ithaca is very big and has a lot to offer, so I've recently started Contra dancing and Tango dancing as well. It is open for everyone, even if you only stop by for a visit. Contra dancing is a community dance of all ages and very welcoming, a fun place to meet people.

Ithaca has incredible gifted artists especially local musicians. I love attending regularly music performances at local theaters, pubs, parks and festivals.
