The Inn On Columbia delivers superb location, charming accommodations and delicious breakfast. Off street parking, this choice has it all. Option to arrive late and not disturb the proprietor. Well thought out plan for interacting with guests, and attention to detail in fit, finish and furnishing are complemented by a fanatic attention to cleanliness. This place has it all!

Serve self continental breakfast. Each party had their own box of delicious baked goods and then there was fruit yogurt etc. we weren't crazy about the street a bit...

My wife and I are explorers. We've sought out fun places and interesting places to stay for decades. The Inn on Columbia, we're thinking, is The Best of the Bunch. Certainly, the most stylish. The house itself is one of those century-old Ithaca beauties. Inside, though, its magnificent contemporary with a stunning collection of original Michael Boyd artwork. There are...

So back to the Inn on Columbia about a 10 months after my last stay. This time 2 nights to visit son at Cornell and 1 business meeting. Stayed in the rd room with no one else in this building. Meaning I had the use of a giant kitchen/living area. Did not want to leave. Check out the pictures to...

My husband and I enjoyed a winter weekend stay at the Main House King during a weekend visit with our son. Our bedroom suite was quiet and very comfortable. The bath and room as well as the living and dining areas are so well designed and nicely decorated. The owners have a friendly older dog and kitty cat which we...

We spent a night at the Inn on Columbia with our college-aged kids in tow - in the Blue and Green rooms. The whole house is so spacious, comfortable and well-thought out. We appreciated the kitchen stocked with fruit, granola, yogurt and beverages. The location - a short walk to the Ithaca Commons but away from the noise and bustle...

This may change your mind about B&B's. The property is set up as separate living accommodations each with private bath and entrances. We love the large gazebo room which is a separate building in the back courtyard with a large bathroom, jacuzzi tub and heated floors. The suite has a fireplace and secluded feel. The carriage house is very nice...

Stayed here while I was in town for a wedding. It was very nice and clean. The only drawbacks were the automatic lights which are triggered by motion, so if you get up in the middle of the night the hall light turns on, temporarily blinding you and possible waking up your kids. Also the parking was a little tough....

We were in town to take care of a family emergency. The Cornell homecoming made our mission extremely difficult to complete. We needed LOTS of help. Madeline and Kenn jumped right in without hesitation. Their help was indispensable and we will never forget it. Oh, and by the way, the rooms, suites, and apartment are lovely. If cookie-cutter, chain-hotel rooms...

Interesting antique collections, as well as several really cool...
