Janelle and Aaron
Why Janelle and Aaron chose Ithaca
The property is surrounded by a public nature preserve with direct access to hiking trails and nature, yet located in close driving distance to Cornell and Ithaca
What makes this Guest House unique
Ellis Hollow is country living at its best, featuring two nature preserves (the one surrounding our property and then another, more popular preserve two miles away with more extensive trails). You are secluded in natural beauty but only minutes away from all the amenities that Ithaca has to offer.

GORGEOUS, clean, quiet haven in the woods--close to Cornell
Why would anyone ever want to stay in a hotel in Ithaca when they could stay in this gorgeous, well-appointed cottage in the woods? Beautiful design and such lovely personal touches--the art, the tulips, the bottle of wine and bowl of fruit--and such a beautiful design. Janelle and Aaron and baby Katherine couldn't have been more welcoming, generous, and accommodating. I was in town to give a talk at Cornell, and this place was just down the road and a haven to come back to (would be perfect for parents visiting a student at Cornell or Ithaca). Great place for work too--high speed internet. It was snowy and cold, but the cabin was cozy, warm, and so clean, and Aaron kept the driveway plowed. I worked in the travel industry for 20+ years and have seen many wonderful places, and this was one of my favorites. I can't wait to return.
Excellent clean comfortable retreat
Thanks so much Janelle and Aaron. Your cottage is beautiful and far exceeded our expectations. It has been so nice spending time here and having our family together. My daughter is a freshman In college and after a cold rainy day it was was nice to come back for a cup of tea! Thanks for the part you have played in our special weekend.
Very charming,clean and roomy cottage. The setting was so nice even tho it rained a lot! Kitchen was equipped with everything. I thought it was was one of the best vrbo’s that we have stayed in! I look forward to visiting again!
Sleek and Serene
We loved our stay at this modern but cozy cabin in the woods. Only minutes from downtown Ithaca, but hidden away in the woods. The cabin was clean and prepped for everything you need for your stay. We would definitely stay again. Thanks!
Thank you, Ashley! Glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope you come again!
Perfect Nature Getaway
My husband and I stayed here for a week and loved everything that Janelle and Aaron did to make our stay perfect! Both patios are great for enjoying the outdoors (one has a grill, the other a chimenea) and the cottage was just the right size for the two of us. We also loved the coffee and espresso options in the morning! The location is nicely nestled in the forest, but not too far from downtown Ithaca and other Finger Lakes attractions.
Thank you! It was great meeting you both, please come again.
Janelle and Aaron have created a very relaxing place in the woods near Ithaca. The Cottage includes everything a guest needs (or might have forgotten). Thanks so much for the warm welcome and the extra touches (chardonnay, sunflowers). Stay here if you want to sleep with the windows open and only hear owls during the night.
Thank you, Art. It was great meeting you both, hope to see you again!
