Suggested by relative who had stayed last year and it was a great recommendation! Stayed two nights in "The Sanctuary" - a large room with a large bathroom that includes a jacuzzi tub. The location was great for walking: a couple minute walk to restaurants and Ithaca Commons, a pedestrian area with shops; about a 10 minute walk to the...

We stayed in the Library, a lovely room with attached bathroom. (The convenient separate shower and toiletry areas allow two guests to utilize the bathroom amenities at the same time.) When we arrived at the Inn, we were greeted with delicious desserts. After a comfortable sleep, we enjoyed a heavenly breakfast on the front porch. I highly recommend this beautiful...

My husband and I and friends of ours stayed here one night while passing through the area. Our friends had picked it because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. They were correct! It is a wonderful place to stay. We met with Lynette as soon as we arrived. She is the real deal as people have mentioned. She told us about...

This is a great place to stay in Ithaca. Very close to the Commons and also has a lot to character. We really enjoyed the breakfast on both days. Will stay here again. We stayed in the Carriage House and the room was quite large and comfortable.

We stayed at the inn the last week of June 2016 and had a fabulous time. The inn is as beautiful as it looks in the photos, and it is located within easy walking distance to the Ithaca Commons and the many restaurants and shops. Lynette and her team do a great job making you feel pampered. The breakfasts (and...

Besides being a charming little place to stay with a location that allows easy access to anything in Ithaca, the baked goods they put out each afternoon are otherworldly delicious. Yes, you can walk to the square and the rooms are cozy and clean, but those cookies are what would bring me back!

This is a beautiful and well-run B&B. Lynnette, Katie and the entire staff bend over backwards to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The breakfasts are to die for and the nightly dessert bar is a wonderful touch. Do not go here while on a diet!! The inn itself is a beautiful example of early 1900s architecture with beautiful woodwork...

This is a great spot located near the Commons and many restaurants and it is also close to two colleges. The owner and other staff are genuinely happy that you are a guest and so accommodating in any request that you might have. The breakfast was outstanding and what can I say about the desert buffet? It was AMAZING! Thank...

My wife and I stayed one night at the WHM Inn after attending the reunion at Cornell and staying 3 nights in one of the dorms on campus. We were graciously welcomed by Lynette and had a lovely stay. We were meeting another couple later for dinner and Lynette told us to bring our friends after dinner for dessert, something...
