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... More

The location couldn't be better--you're a few blocks walk to Restaurant Row and The Commons, which includes more restaurants and many wonderful shops. The hospitality is only exceeded by the scrumptious breakfasts and desserts. You are offered a... More
