Right in the heart of downtown Ithaca, this Victorian inn is within walking distance of countless restaurants – and close to the Cornell campus. The inn presents a warm and cozy atmosphere – decorated in a country style and reflecting the autumnal colors which many people flock to this part of the country to witness. The elegant rooms – our favorite is the Library – are individually decorated, and hotel facilities include a huge breakfast and evening desserts with organic coffee and tea.

Set on 70 acres (28ha) of lush green countryside, this family-owned hotel is as welcoming as it is luxurious – and even with all the greenery, you’re still only just over 3mi (5km) from downtown and the university. The country-style accommodation is traditional, cozy and well-appointed, some with fireplaces so you can truly hunker down. The farm-to-table bistro focuses on seasonal, local ingredients and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is also an excellent spa here to indulge in.

Ithaca Boat House

This pretty and bijou offering is situated directly over the water’s edge on Cayuga Lake. There are two units available, both taking full advantage of their aqua-adjacent situation – the lower unit offering a large shaded picnic table and direct access to the lake right outside the door. Both units are decorated in a European style, with antique touches and luxurious bathtubs – while other amenities include cable TV, air conditioning, a fireplace and wifi.

This casual and quirky offering is all about Cornell – much like Andy’s character on The Office. The accommodation has been mocked up like a college dorm room, but don’t let that fool you – there are also boutique hotel touches such as flat-screen TVs, attractive ensuites and high-end toiletries. The amenities don’t stop there, either – there’s also a self-pour bar supplied by local breweries, a grab-and-go station, an attractive outdoor deck and super friendly staff who will probably teach you the Cornell fight song in passing.
