We had good privacy and it was convenient to reach Cornell and downtown Ithaca by car. Overall, it is a good value for the money. One thing I would want to let other guests know is though it looks to be kept reasonably clean, there...More

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

Loved this cozy little apartment tucked behind the owners home. Perfect location near enough to downtown Ithaca but far enough away to be out of the student hub-bub. Enjoyed waking to the sound of birds, even a pileated woodpecker! Thanks for a lovely stay.More

I'm so glad you got to hear the pileated woodpecker! Being down the road from Cornell's Lab of Ornithology brings a multitude of wildlife to the property. Guest who wake at 6 am often see our twin fawns eating in the backyard! Thank you for...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.
