Beth's place was very close to collegetown and campus so it was great for our trip to Cornell. The house is spacious and as described in the listing. We had a very comfortable stay. Would recommend!

Beth's place was absolutely perfect for the 8 of us who gathered in Ithaca to 'relive' our days at Cornell on the late 60s/early 70s. The house was exactly as described and being a 10 -12 minute walk from the Cornell campus, perfectly located. It was incredibly well equipped, clean and full of the personal touches that make staying in someone's home so wonderful

Beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood. Great spaces to gather and hang out - front porch (no backyard space) and dinning room easily accommodated the 8 of us. A little dusty in the corners (but overall clean). No AC but plenty of fans in the house. Beth was quick to respond and easy to communicate with. Would rent this space again!

Beth was a wonderful host! Her house was spacious, clean and cozy. There were 8 of us in town for our Cornell college reunion and her home was a perfect size for all of us and was a quick walk to campus. Beth was very responsive and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend booking this home and would love to stay again for the next reunion in 5 years!
