This B&B is in Ovid, NY, about 20 minutes outside of Ithaca right on Cayuga Lake. It's right in the middle of wine country, so it's a good starting/ending point for wine tasting days.
Service is great - they will bring coffee to your room every morning! Breakfast is tasty and filling.
Each room has a private bath and a balcony. A couple rooms have jacuzzis and fireplaces.
There are 2 restuarants closeby - one is a 5 minute walk, the other is about 2 miles away. Both overlook the water.
They have boats available to use.
This is an absolutley brilliant place. It is way out, around 30mins from Ithaca and in the heart of the country. Wanda, the host cooks breakfast of pancakes, jams(jellies), eggs, toast in the morning in her own kitchen and she welcomes you into her home with such warmth.
There are a number of log chalets. We stayed in a room with three suites. There are communal kithen and sitting room areas. There is a balcony, conservatory and BBQ which would be great in teh summer. Each suite is kitted out with a theme- russian, polish, native american to name a few.
There are a number of trails set out in the grounds. Incidently our cabin was 1/4 mile away from the main house and at one with nature.
Great host and such a location. It was great. Wanda takes photos of her guests and posts them on her website, evryone looks like they have had so much fun.
The Coddington Guest House is bright, cheerful, clean, comfortable, inspiring, and relaxing. It's a place where you'll catch your breath at the view from your room. It's a home away from home.
When you enter the rooms at The Coddington, you can choose from total privacy and reflection, social interaction, or a combination of the two. You're in the City, yet surrounded by nature. You can see most of the community you're visiting right from your bedroom window, or from a relaxing porch chair. Walk a gorge trail yards from the porch, step down the street to a fine restaurant, or hop to one of Ithaca's two major college campuses within minutes. You can enjoy breakfast with other guests, or in private. Play piano, watch movies or TV, work out on a treadmill, sit and read, or just enjoy the view.
Situated atop Ithaca's South Hill, the Coddington offers convenient access to both Cornell University and Ithaca College. IC is a short walk away, or pop over to Cornell in just a few minutes.
Two of Ithaca's finest restaurants are right nearby, and we have a laundromat, gas station and convenience store, pizzeria, and bus stop close by. Meanwhile, your hostess will see to your every need, and guide you through activity choices and information about the area.
All three of the suites at the Coddington enjoy a private bath, ample closet space, refrigerators, and space to spread out in adjacent TV sitting areas. Two of the suites are perfect for families, accommodating four to eight; two have private entrances; and each has an adjacent kitchen or microwave oven. Our living areas also feature exercise equipment and a piano.
Regardless of which suite you stay in, you'll find a surprising amount of relaxing elbow room, and of course, a great view!
It is difficult for me to judge hotels in Ithaca since I'm not really a "tourist" here and always stay at my boyfriend's place. I still thought I would provide this useful link for accomodation in Ithaca below.
I guess in Ithaca, it really depends whether you're looking for something cheap, something close to the airport, close to shopping or close to Cornell University.
If you have something specific in mind, you can just ask me and I can probably just about tell you where in Ithaca it is.
This is one of the great draws of the Inn. This beautiful dog (Twiggy) is five years old, and just sweet. There's another, larger, younger dog also, named Nasza. They are so friendly and will let you pet them and kiss them and play with them. Check them out at: http://www.logtv.com/inn/
We were a little surprised at how far out from downtown Ithaca this lovely place was...however, we enjoyed our brief (two nights) stay and I highly recommend it for travelers with a car and a desire to see the surrounding areas of Ithaca.
We stayed in the Russian Room. It has artsy wooden furniture that retained its natural shape. That room has a shower in the bathroom attached to the room, but each room has different arrangements. We also had the run of the downstairs kitchen and living room.
In the morning, the hostess, Wanda, provides a magnificent breakfast of fruit salad, juice (a different kind each morning), amazing coffee, potato pancakes, blintzes or blinis, and conversation. There was plenty to eat.
The grounds are beautiful, and there are two dogs - very friendly.
Everything is unique about this place. Check out the website to see.

Expect to pay a lot for hotels and B&Bs around Ithaca. If you can, camp. I think it's a lot cheaper that way. Unless you are willing to pay luxury prices. Check around before travelling to Ithaca.
I would recommend using this web site for more info:
Well, if I had lots of cash, I would stay at the Statler Hotel on Cornell Campus. I worked there for a long time so I can tell you, it's a great experience. However, if you - like me - travel with your dog, and if you - like me - a po', broke and cheap, your best bet is the Econo Lodge by the mall.
Statler is the nicest, ranging from $99-270
Econolodge is cheap, ~$75. And +$10 for the dog.
Statler Hotel is run by students (don't worry, there are real, live adults in charge!). A fun experience is TCAB night, when students take over the dining facilities and put on a 'theme night'. It's a Cornell tradition and though service can be slow, it is sure to entertain.
At the Econo Lodge, they let you have your dog. An outstanding attribute of ANY lodging facility, I think.
Tremont park a good campground,
You can do there the very nice
tremont rim trail hike !
(I thought it was 5 mile hike)
I thought it was $ 12 a night at 97
My old dorm Cascadilla Hall..I LOVED this place. It was built in the 1800s and was at the gateway to COLLEGETOWN. It reeked of Ivy-ness;-)
In the summer they rent dorm rooms to budget travellers and it is actually one of the best values and puts you ON the campus.
Its operated like a hostel in the past. There are shared cooking facilities, single beds, bathrooms and showers are down the hall.
Its only a dozen steps out the front door and COLLEGE TOWN is at your fingertips.
Any bed and breakfast in the area is a great place to stay.
Some will be similar to the place I lived junior year which overlooked a waterfall and was a short walk to campus....
