Loved our stay here. Owners were very nice. Place was clean and comfortable. We stayed in the spacious Hudson Suite. Though we did not cook, the kitchen was well stocked. We enjoyed the muffins and scones that were delivered each evening for the next day's breakfast. Our friends stayed in a room in the Main house and enjoyed the cooked...

We took a weekend getaway in Ithaca and stayed a Villa Madeline, one of the Inn on Columbia suites. The accommodations were well pointed, thoughtfully prepared, colorful and clean. Unique design ideas (find them when you visit) and private bath rooms as well as seating in each room made this Inn more special. Having parking on site and a porch...

Spent two nights here during @Entrepeneur at Cornell seminar. Very nice place. Clean. Nice breakfast basket each morning. Stayed at separate location 404 s.aurora. Think it was blue room on second floor. Bed was queen size. Only negative was older style TV, with bad reception. However wifi signal was great and picked up Netflix.

First time visiting Ithaca, and my husband and i chose the coldest and snowiest winter weekend to visit. Awesome planning on our part. But Madeline and Kenn's accommodations still made it a very special and enjoyable stay. We brought our dog so we had the upstairs room right on top of the kitchen/living/common area. The bathroom is separate from the...

My family travels to Ithaca a few times a year to visit my in-laws, friends and generally relax. We have no expectations to do anything in particular on these visits but unwind, so when we found Madeline and Kenn's accommodations at the Inn on Columbia we knew we discovered the right fit for us. Our first stay was in their...

A large group of friends / couples rented the entire Inn on Columbia and apartments next door for the annual triathlon. The house is full of Ithaca-charm, with lots of natural wood, character and interesting furniture. We appreciated having the large common space for family dinners, the fridge stocked with staple items, and the back porch and upstairs balcony for...

We stayed in the green room & absolutely loved it! The bed was very comfortable. The room itself was extremely spacious. There was a nice patio off the back side of the room with 2 chairs for sitting. The shower was a little strange with the toilet being next to the shower but it works. The common area was well...

We loved the location, decor, and breakfast. Very unfortunately for us, Kenn spoiled our stay by neglecting to honor promises. Book with caution if you value integrity. Look at all Kenn's responses to negative reviews to verify that he is NEVER wrong.

Like any other hotel, motel or bed and breakfast, a reservation is not confirmed until the guest provides a valid credit card.

We stayed for two nights in the house next to the main building which has been recently and perfectly modernised. All of the rooms are spacious and well designed - it is clear that the architect owner knows his stuff! Pastries and fruit (as well as other things in fridge) for breakfast and are provided boxed for each group of...
