Plenty of parking in the driveway and a quick drive to Ithaca College (very close), downtown, Cornell, and the state parks.

The apartment was very comfortable and clean. It was the perfect place to stay while visiting our son at Ithaca College. Sherri could not have been more helpful with instructions and accommodating about check in times. She also graciously offered to let us have our son stay with us. And I LOVED that there was half n half in the fridge for our coffee!!!
What a wonderful studio! It was roomier than I expected and had everything we could possibly need. It's so convenient to Ithaca but felt like we were in the country. When we drove in, we were greeted by 2 deer who hung out while we unpacked, and came back to visit each day. My son loved that there was a basketball hoop for him to play when he had time! Sherri was great to work with and responded to emails quickly. We'll definitely be back!
Ellis Haven was a great place to stay while visiting my daughter at Cornell. It was an easy 10 minute drive to campus, so that was perfect (and Ithaca College even closer). Sherri was very accomodating as there was a possibility of a very late arrival (which did happen). Very clear instructions, the place was ready and welcoming with the light on! In the morning it was so nice to have coffee and even cream in the fridge. Well stocked kitchen (and house) and when I wanted to do some baking, Sherri let me borrow their own standing mixer. The accomodations sit on the ground level and the owners' residence above (separate entrance). Some sounds of walking on the floor above, but not too distracting. Overall a great choice and would definitely stay here again!
My husband, adult daughter and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of July, 2016. Prior to our stay I had emailed several times to Sherri and each time she responded within 24 hours with an answer. The apartment has many extras that you typically don't find at other VRBO/Homeaway rentals such as coffee (both Kuerig and brew), shampoo/conditioner, plenty of paper products, umbrella, flashlight, earplugs, pool noodles, etc. When we were outside either Sherri or Mike would ask us how our day was and if there was anything they could do. They did not come knocking on our door to disturb us. The grounds and pool are very well kept. The apartment is located close enough to town that it's easy to drive in or to the nearby gorges. (Robert Tremain was fantastic!) The WIFI consistently worked. I would recommend this apartment for your next stay while in the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable stay at Ellis Haven. The suite is well-kept and the wonderful hosts have thought of everything. My kids enjoyed the pool and the meandering around the ground. Thank you Sherri and Mike!
Check in 3 pm & check out 11 am. However, we are flexible on timing if there are not guests prior to or following your stay, and you may always use the grounds or leave luggage as needed, before or after checking in or out.
