Such a wonderful experience. Went to the Finger Lakes for an anniversary vacation. Lynnette, Katie and Dave were available to provide useful tips on places to see in the area. They are gracious and thoughtful, and are sensitive to allow their guests the amount of privacy they desire. It is so great to be at a well-kept and comfortable B&B....

The Inn is immaculate, the food superb, and guests' every need has been anticipated. Lynette is a welcoming and hard-working, gracious hostess. Rooms are most comfortable and have amenities not usually found in even the best accommodations. Location is ideal for walking to the downtown area, science center, library, and other points of interest. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

The Inn was superb. Lynnette went out of her way to make us feel at home.Came to Ithaca to see my nephew play for the Cornell hockey team. The service and breakfast were second to none. Terrific breakfasts each morning. Delicious plates made with care and imagination. Wonderful menu of different styles of eggs, fruit and baked items that you...

You couldn't ask for anything more! From the first minute in the Inn until we walked out Sunday morning, we felt home. Lynette was the most incredible host, we felt like we had known her for years. We loved every part of the property, parking, location, the amenities, brunch and Lucy! We will be back even though we live 30...

Sometimes I'm hesitant reading B and B reviews as visitors get to know a hostess and are reluctant to write anything that isn't glowing. Well let me assure you that this is unquestionably a B and B and owner much deserving of all the praise. This was the first time I came home and went to get out notepaper to...

Me and my husband had the opportunity to stay with a gift certificate we won back around Valentine's Day. Life got away from us and we finally got it booked for January. We got a call from Lynnette, the amazing innkeeper and host, alerting us of some painting being done in the house. She graciously upgraded us to a suite...

We loved this place. The place was as good as it gets. The room was incredibly spacious. Great location. The staff were excellent in all regards - thoughtful and kind. We stayed here on the last night of our honeymoon and it was a perfect end to a beautiful road trip to enjoy the fall foliage. The Inn is certainly...

Lynette is so sweet and couldn't do enough for us at her comfortable B and B. William Henry Miller Inn is a street away from the Ithaca Commons and also from the beautiful Cascadilla Gorge trail to Cornell University. The house is full of interesting architectural details and very welcoming. In addition to a wonderful breakfast, 6 or 7 delicious...
