Loved our overnight at Madeline House. Our room at front was noisy but very comfy. Loved the privacy, the boxed delicious breakfast as well as a seating area where I could go when awake at night due to my always present insomnia! This has become our go to place when visiting my son at college.

The place was gorgeous, almost as if it were ready for a magazine photo shoot, and it was immaculate. The breakfast, which was delivered in a bakery box to the house we were staying in, was delicious fresh baked goods and perfect fresh fruit. Why, you might ask, was the breakfast delivered from afar if you were staying in an...

We booked on the same day and got the last minute rate. The owners were super friendly, the room was perfect and the breakfast was amazing! Spend 100 dollars for a mediocre night at the super 8 or spend 125 for a piece of heaven at the Inn on Columbia. Highly recommended.

We have stayed at the Inn several times in different locations. It has always been clean,comfortable and private. It is in a active student and family neighborhood close to the downtown restaurant scene. Some really delightful restaurants are just a few blocks away. The buildings that make up the Inn are innovative and have all the comforts llike fireplaces and...

I stayed here one night for a short trip to Cornell. The hosts were very welcoming and knowledgable about the area. The room we stayed in was very clean and the chef prepared breakfast that was included was delicious.

We stayed at the carriage house. We arrived at night and our taxi driver didn't know where it was. Since you can't see the address from the street, that involved slogging through a lot of mud and wet leaves until we found the place at the end of a long, slippery, wet and leaf-covered driveway. The house is cute and...

We are sorry that you think that you reviewed our Carriage House because you were not a guest there. That is clear from the description of the building. Please remove this review.

I stayed at the Hillview House this past weekend with a group of friends.The house was great -- very comfortable. Nice to have room to spread out, and this house was perfect for that. Our check-in at the main inn was pleasant -- Kenn and Madeline were both welcoming and helpful. The house itself was immaculate. Plenty of towels, blankets...

I have traveled to Ithaca for business several times over the past couple years. I had hoped to stay at a local B&B vs. a hotel, but it's difficult to find any at the same price point as a Best Western or Holiday Inn. Inn on Columbia has consistently been the answer and I always try them first whenever our...

Thanks for your thoughtful and well written review. Do do acknowledge that traffic on Aurora St can be busy at times. We have a new building on quieter Columbia St that I know you will appreciate. The Villa does have use of six parking space right next door. The motion sensor lighting is really simple to operate- switch to "off...

Lovely Gazebo stay at last minute back in June! Ken and Madeline are wonderful with helpful information and helped us for breakfast when we left early! The architecture of the house is amazing. The breakfast was a creamy scrambled egg with cheese and quiche like. It is a bit far to walk into the main part of town 15-20min walk...

Our stay in the gazebo was perfect. A private quiet retreat in the midst of a long road trip. The king bed with fireplace and spacious bath area made for the perfect nest. We truly felt right at home. Ken and Madeline have succeeded at creating a truly unique Inn experience.
