About Sherri Ellis
We (Mike, Sherri, & Emma) moved to "Ellis Haven" in the summer of 2014. We feel very grateful to call this sweet spot home, and enjoy sharing it with others. Mike and Sherri both work at a local mental health clinic - Mike as a therapist, and Sherri in intake. For the last 10 years Mike has also spent much of his spare time helping people with housing issues through a non-profit organization, Love Knows No Bounds. Emma is a junior in high school, and spends her spare time outside of school pursuing her passion in musical theater.

Ellis Haven, Ithaca NY
The house was clean and set up well. Very nice accommodations!
Perfect place with plenty of space for my young family of 5!
The place was very clean, organized, and perfect for what we needed. It is a great property just south of IC and really easy to get in and out of town. We’d love to return someday! Thanks!
The place was comfortable and spacious. Also, the hosts were very nice. We would highly recommend this place.
Great place to stay.
Huge apartment, the entire basement of the house. Bed is super comfortable. Use of a pool! Nice owners. Someone noted lack of bedroom plugs. There is a power strip next to the bed, so not an issue any more. The only thing to note is that this is a daylight basement, and there is a damp smell. Humidifiers are running, but the smell is definitely there. We were not bothered, but this could be an issue for some.
Thanks for staying with us, and taking the time to write a review as well. It was a pleasure having you here.
We always welcome feedback on how to improve our guest space, and wanted to note that we are installing an A/C unit to further decrease the humidity.
We also think the smell may have been more noticeable because a plumber had been clearing a grease clog in the guest space and flooded the floor under the sink. It took a little time to dry properly, but seems to have abated now.
