Megan's house is located in a great part of Ithaca. Very close to the Commons and scenic areas. We also really enjoyed the tasteful and artistic furnishings and decoration. This is an ideal place to spend a weekend.

We had a fantastic stay at Megan's house. There were 6 of us plus our toddler and it was the perfect size for us. The house was very clean and comfortable. It's centrally located near downtown Ithaca and close to amazing gorges. Megan was so helpful and communicative throughout out visit. We loved staying at this house and hope to come back to Ithaca soon!

This is a great home in a fantastic location. The house was as clean as could be, the hosts were communicative / very easy to work with, and the layout is very conducive to traveling with family. We were very pleased. (And the hosts provided a great guide of local attractions, eats, and other necessities.)

A wonderful family home with character and charm; it accommodated 6 of us comfortably for Cornell graduation weekend. The house is located on a quiet, tree-lined street with plenty of parking. There is a lovely back porch with two adirondack chairs overlooking a lush garden. We appreciated the BBQ grill and well-equipped kitchen, plus the expansive nearby Wegmans for groceries and prepared food. Megan was a responsive and friendly host.

We stayed at Megan's lovely Ithaca home for my son's graduation. Our group of 6 fit comfortably in the 4 bedroom/2 bathroom home. The house is adorable on a quiet, residential street that is walking distance from the Commons. The backyard was perfect for our catered celebration dinner and easily accommodated our group of 15. Megan left us fresh muffins, cookies and OJ to make breakfast easy and left a list of great restaurants and shops to get anything else you might need. I would definitely stay there again and have already recommended it to my friends with kids at the Ithaca colleges. Thanks Megan!

My husband and I grew up together in Ithaca, left town for approximately 10 years for school and living abroad. We returned to Ithaca to be near family, the beautiful lake and gorges and to raise a family. I am a Nurse Practitioner while my husband is an Ithaca College professor. We have two children.
