I’m sorry you smelled a musty oder, I can’t imagine what it was. We book at 94% occupancy rate and out of 86+ reviews I’ve never hear this before. Perhaps all the rain we’ve had in Ithaca this autumn has produced a damp smell but...More

About the neighbourhood
We are 2 minutes from the airport and on the local bus route. 5 mins to Cornell and 15 to Ithaca College and TC3. Down the street from the Ithaca Country Club and it's beautiful golf course. We are always happy to help arrange transportation.
The Alley house is located in what is affectionately known as Cigarette Alley in Northeast Ithaca NY. We have a herd of deer living on our dead end street! We are walking distance to the trails at Cornell's Lab of Ornithology. We are minutes from Cornell, Ithaca College and the Ithaca Commons yet the beauty of nature is abundant here.
Getting around
While the Tompkins County Transit bus stops at the end of our driveway hourly, most our guests prefer to have a car.
