The space
Located on the first floor of the Carriage House, this large King suite boasts a separate bedroom, living room with a day bed, well equipped kitchenette and private bathroom with tub / shower combo. The day bed can sleep a third person or child. A hair dryer, iron, ironing board, central heat + air conditioning, sound machine, made in USA linens and towels, natural bath products, complimentary Wifi, and an alarm clock radio are also standard.

There is a television with Prime TV + Amazon firestick for you to log into your own Netflix, HBO, ESPN, etc. accounts. There is NOT traditional cable.

The kitchenette is stocked with dishes, glassware, water kettle, french press, microwave, small refrigerator with freezer.

We are an old school motel experience with ground level rooms that have doors directly to the outside. This room is located on the first floor of the carriage house and does have a room above it. You may hear people walking above you, or the occasional door opening or closing.

In the winter cozy up to the wood burning stove in our guest lounge, or take a winter walk on one of our trails. In the summer make use of all 11 acres, lawn games, and our outdoor grills and fire pits. Drive down the road to one of many amazing State Parks, restaurants, wineries, or museums.

Wildlife mostly keeps to the back 9-acres, but occasionally you’ll find a toad out for an evening stroll, a chipmunk scurrying across the yard, an errant grasshopper or cricket trying to make their way in your room, or a snake sunning it’s self in the driveway. They were here first after all. Read more about our stunning Inlet Valley location.

Beer, wine, coffee, soft drinks and snacks are available year round from our reception desk / bar in the Main House. Text an order to your room or stop by in person during office hours.

**Please note that indoor common areas, including our bar and guest lounge, are currently closed to the public due to COVID-19. Wine, beer and snacks can be added through the booking form and will be waiting in your room at check in. Orders can also be easily placed for contactless delivery throughout your stay. We appreciate your understanding as we do our very best to provide a safe stay for all guests. Please see CoV-19 Response for more information.

From July 4th through Labor Day weekend the minimum stay requirement is three nights, all other seasons the minimum stay requirement is two nights. On the occasion that a single night becomes available it is opened for booking online. Feel free to reach out as dates approach if you are looking for something specific.

Guest access
Guests have all hours access to their rooms and can park directly in the front of their door. Morning coffee, tea and cocoa are available in the office from 8:00am - 10:00am daily. We have games available for check out, and loads of information about area attractions. C’mon over.

Other things to note
Our Elmira Rd. locations mean that we're super convenient to State Parks, downtown Ithaca, wineries, etc. It also means that in some of our rooms you may hear cars going by at 35-45 mph. Most folks aren't bothered by this, but it's something to be aware of if you have a sensitivity to road noise.

My husband Mark and I bought this very sweet little motel and accompanying 11 acres in late September of 2017. We've been Airbnb (super)hosts in our personal home since 2012, and felt Airbnb would be the perfect venue to share The Grayhaven. Our 16 room vintage motel is located in Ithaca, a small city in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State. We offer a contemporary, affordable lodging experience for visiting family, friends, business travelers and vacationers. Here you’ll find classic and spacious mid-century rooms as well as a few fully equipped cottages and suites with kitchenettes. We love to travel with our two Bull Terriers, thus many of our rooms are dog friendly, and guests rave about our fenced dog yard.
