    This is the Rolls Royce of B&B's.  We knew we would have a good experience because of previous reviews, but we were surpised at how superb everything was from the breakfasts to the desserts served at 7:30 p.m.   The house is an architectural gem ( my partner, an architect, was in awe).  We give Lynette, the proprietor, also 5 stars. It's no wonder she won the Innkeeper of the Year award in 2012.  If you're coming to Ithaca, this is the place to stay.

    I had a wonderful stay at the Inn.  It is in a perfect location, a couple of blocks from the commons and lots of restaurants.  The owners and staff are incredibly friendly and accommodating, and the room and bathroom were clean and comfortable.  This is not the place to come if you're on a diet though - the food is amazing!  In the morning there were muffins, fresh squeezed juices, coffee, a fruit starter, and amazing egg or sweet dishes.  In the afternoons, there was iced tea or lemonade.  In the evenings, there is a dessert buffet with cookies, brownies, and cakes.  My favorite was a pineapple upside-down cake.  Everything is made right there in the kitchen.  I loved sitting on the porch for breakfast or with dessert on the warm evenings.

    This B&B is just excellent. My partner and I recently stayed a night in Ithaca passing through the Finger Lakes wine country, and decided to go the B&B route rather than traditional chain hotel. What a good decision.

    The room (The LIbrary) was gorgeous and charming. The bed was super comfy. The private bath was a brilliant layout - split into two rooms, one for shower and a separate room for vanity & toilet.

    The breakfast, cooked by Innkeeper Dave, was amazing, and easily rivaled anything we could have obtained in an outside restaurant. And the nightly sideboard of desserts and coffee/teas were the perfect end to our day of car travel into Ithaca.

    The location is perfect, mere steps away from all the shopping & dining options in/around the Ithaca Commons.

    Over breakfast in the dining room, we met another vacationing couple on a road-trip from Ottawa, Ontario, who were also doing the wine country jaunt around the lakes. We ran into them again at one of the wineries (small world, eh?), and were able to point them to some new wines to try!

    If ever we are headed near Ithaca again, the Miller Inn will be in our sights.

    The William Henry Miller Inn is DIVINE!! This was my first trip to Ithaca, and staying here made the trip.

    First, let me say that my boyfriend and I were traveling with a large dog. When calling ahead to most hotels in the area, all charge a pet fee (ranging from 20-75 a night) - while the accommodations are severely lacking. While the WHM Inn is a pricey stay - it is lavishly indulgent and special, with a bonus of no extra pet fee.

    The pet-friendly sweet is called The Garner Sweet. It on the bottom floor of a separate housing unit, making it convenient to enter/exit with a large dog. The room bedroom is gigantic and clean, with all the amenities one could hope for, and marked with a cozy/thoughtful decor. There is a bonus sitting room with a minifridge, and a very large bathroom with jacuzzi, shower, and even a bidet!

    The owners are not only sweet, but know how to please their visitors. They are a wealth of information for activities to try out around town, and also offer delicious desserts and breakfasts each day that WOWed us. For instance, home-made blueberry jam from local farms, with homemade sourdough bread - asparagus and  herb rolled omlette with the most perfect potato concoction on the side - and appetizers while you wait for the cook to individually prepare your choice! Of course, endless coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cereal, cookies, candies are available at any hour.

    Last but not least, the WHM Inn is conveniently located in the center of town. Two blocks away from the famous Moosewood Restaurant, and the main walking strip.

    This was the most I could ask for from two nights of lodging. Thank you!!

    Our first trip to the Finger Lakes was fantastic.  Walking into the Inn for the first time, you see the beautiful wood built-ins and the exquisite Tiffany glass, hear and feel the neat history with every creaky step on the antique floors.  It's a charming place and the innkeeper and staff are top notch.  My favorite things are 24/7 coffee and tea, evening desserts at 8pm, and certainly breakfasts.  Great location for sight-seeing and walking around to enjoy a college town.  The fireplace in the Library room was good ambiance and extra nice right out of the shower.

    We were lucky to find this treasure of a place during our daughters orientation at Ithaca College.  We stayed at the William Henry Miller Inn throughout our daughters four years in Ithaca. Lynnette, the Inn Keeper,  became family and we loved the gourmet breakfasts in the mornings and the array of homemade desserts in the evening.  The Inn is perfectly located to downtown Ithaca (walking distance), the farmer's market, the lake, and both colleges (Ithaca and Cornell).  Although our daughter's graduation was a happy time, it was bitter sweet, we will miss our times at the Inn and our good friend Lynnette.  This is hands down the best place to stay in Ithaca!

    As a newbie to the world of B&Bs, the William Henry Miller Inn was the perfect introduction.  This charming Victorian home is beautifully decorated and has a very cozy and inviting feel to it.  Innkeeper Lynnette and her staff are extremely friendly and exceptionally accommodating.  The breakfast served in the mornings rivals any nice restaurant's, and the homemade desserts Lynnette puts out in the evenings are definitely something to look forward to.  The Inn's resident pets,  Millie (a rescued chihuahua) and Eduardo (a rescued cat), are super friendly, too, and add to that "home away from home" feeling.  When I visit Ithaca again, this is where I'll be staying.

    Somewhere along the way, Lynette will utter the sentence that will change your life: "dessert is put out at 8PM."  You'll find yourself wondering how you've lived without dessert being "put out" at 8PM. You'll find yourself wondering how you'll ever return to normal life.  You'll find yourself wondering how you'll survive without those brownies, those delightful dark chocolate cookies, and the ginger cookies. As I write this, I'm already in withdrawal. And the breakfast - oh, the breakfast! - you'll want to invest in a waffle machine as soon as you get home, and you'll be kicking yourself for not finding out the recipe for that fruit soup!  How have you lived without the breakfast APPETIZER course? The food that precedes your breakfast?!

    But the amazing food isn't the only reason to stay at this lovely inn -- the Henry Miller is just generally sheer perfection.  Oftentimes, inn can be synonymous with dusty and cluttery - the kind of place where every surface is covered with doilies and ceramic swans.  The Henry Miller is the opposite - the rooms are very spacious,  incredibly comfortable (extra points for lovely bathrooms!), and very well designed.  No clutter, no doilies, no frou-frou curtains.  Our room -- the quarters -- consisted of a bedroom (extremely comfy bed) which had a dresser, a desk, and two sofas, and then a small hallway which connected our bedroom to our private bathroom (and closet).  Extra points for an amazing location - we used our car once the entire weekend since we could walk everywhere.

    And let me say, the innkeeper, Lynette, is just incredibly attentive and incredibly kind - she can answer your every question about Ithaca, engage you in small talk about the lovely cat Eduardo, or about Scandal. She's the kind of person whose smile lights up a room; she is dynamic, friendly, and kind.  As I left I told her "we'll DEFINITELY be back." And I meant it.
