Our house is in the beautiful Ellis Hollow area bordering Cornell University land. It is a convenient 2 mile (5 min) drive from Cornell's central campus and 5 miles (14min) from Ithaca College. We have plenty of safe off- street parking. There is no bus route past our house. The area is perfect for running and biking - the famous "Skunk Cabbage" route runs past our house. A grocery store and gas station are located at East Hill Plaza 1.5 miles away.
If you have questions or special requests, just let us know. We love our home town of Ithaca and would be happy to share information on places to visit and things to do while you are in town.
We look forward to welcoming you to our home,
Bronwyn and Dirk
The apartment is located in our basement and we are usually around. However with your own entrance and completely separate space we do not need to interact with you during your stay unless you would like to pop upstairs for a chat or there is anything that you need. We will try to keep quiet, but you may hear our footsteps in the mornings.
