Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Ron and Linda,

We just returned from a wonderful time in "our" church. To begin with, it's certainly beautiful to approach, the lovely paint job, the flowers, the picnic table..which we used under the tree and then moved back to its original place. There's plenty of parking, although we only had two cars. The inside is a lovely mix of old, vintage-y church/like items. It's fun and funky, and having all the amenities...separate bathrooms, tubs, showers, working fireplace, tons of clean linen, and a stocked kitchen full of conveniences, coffee filters, Saran wrap, garbage bags, mops, paper towels, clear instructions on recycling..made it very easy to know what to do. I liked that we could call maintenance, but didn't need to. I thought the posted "rules" were complete. We have a house in Maine that we rent, and I remember trying hard to make sure the list of rules and suggestions was clear but not exhausting. Thanks again for such a great time.

Charming comfort

  • 5 of 5
We had a small family reunion at the historic Ellis Hollow Church. The accommodations were as described, clean, well-maintained, and met our needs nicely. The kitchen was very functional and allowed us to prepare our communal meals as well as good for grazing for breakfasts and lunches. We liked that they have bins for recycling. There was plenty of parking for the cars.

We spent a good deal of time sitting in the main area, playing games and music, and telling family stories. Because of it's history, it felt right to reminisce there. You can have a pleasant walk on the country roads near the church, but use caution with traffic at certain times of day. There's a nice yard in front if you're there during warmer weather. It's only 5-10 minutes to East Hill Plaza which has a nice grocery store and 10-15 minutes to downtown Ithaca and the many surrounding parks and wineries. It's also not far from Dryden if you go over the hill.

We spoke with Maureen and Linda before arrival. Both were very pleasant and helpful with the reservations and information for our planning. I have and will continue to recommend this rental to friends and family.

Ellis Hollow historic church - poor rental. To be avoided!

  • 1 of 5
I rented this historic church at Ellis Hollow for 1 month in November 2013. I was attracted to it as it was written up to be a beautifully restored antiquated church. However, I was terribly disappointed with my stay for several reasons.
While the church retains its quaint facade, the furnishings inside are both tacky and mostly broken down. All the sofas sag, the bedside tables and chest of drawers are rickety and stick when opened, the basement kitchen is completely unusable and has cobwebs (there was a big cobweb hanging from one of the basement bedroom fans!)... the list goes on. The entire 'antique' ambiance is gone, thanks to all of that. The worst part? The innumerable bugs and spiders that crawl everywhere, on a daily basis. I had to pick up dead bugs almost everyday from the floor. Not a good vacation chore! When I called management to complain, I was told that this is to be expected in an old 'historic' home! Really?! Well, the owner charges high rent for this old 'historic' place and at the least, I expect decent furniture and basic cleanliness.
A week after I started staying in this so-called 'renovated' church, the boiler in the basement broke and water flooded everywhere. I was categorically told that I would have to manage without hot water for 2 days - and this was in November when it was really very, very cold. There was no courtesy call made to apologize for the unexpected problem or at least offer me a refund. Guess I had already paid up my monthly rental amount - that's all the owner cared about.
By the way, beware about your security deposit - it will not be returned on the last day, as claimed. I had to personally ask for my security deposit, after 1 month passed by with no sign of it. Then, I found to my horror that only a small portion of the actual deposit was refunded back to me, based on some trumped up charges of cleaning, repair etc. of the church. They were not substantiated with any proof either. Essentially, I got ripped off, in more ways than one. However, even though the owner got away with my money, I learned a good lesson from my bad experience.
I hope this honest review will prevent others from getting conned by this church rental. I would not recommend the Ellis Hollow church as a vacation rental - unless you want to lose money paying for junk and bad service.

So much nicer than a boring hotel

  • 4 of 5
My friends and I stayed here for our college reunion last weekend. We wanted to be able to have space for everyone to get together and chat, but still keep an eye on all the kids. This house definitely fit the bill. Enough rooms for everyone and two decent sized living areas, so the adults and toddlers were on the main floor and the people who wanted a quieter space could hang out downstairs. The main floor and upstairs are beautifully remodeled, but the downstairs is livable, but not as nice. The furniture is also older and eclectic, but that was part of the charm.
We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Historic Church Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
Ellis Hollow Historic Church proved to be a perfect house for our long weekend in Ithaca. Three couples spent three nights very comfortably with room for more. We each had our own bathroom and very roomy comfortable bedrooms. We enjoyed the quiet country setting and were only minutes away from our activities at Cornell University. We gathered in the living room each evening for conservation and to enjoy the fireplace. The listing was exactly as described and the photos show exactly what was there. Everything was neat, clean and well maintained. there was ample parking available for all of our cars.
We would recommend this property to friends and relatives and have raved about it to others during our activities.

Beautiful Church/House

  • 4 of 5
This is a beautiful property and the interior photos don't do it justice. It has been beautifully renovated, with gorgeous hardwood floors, and is delightfully quirky inside. Each guest was intrigued and had to "take the tour" within minutes of arrival. Although my wedding was postponed and didn't take place there (as was the original intent), it would be a great venue for a small ceremony. We easily accommodated 20 plus guests for dinner (brought our own extra table) and it still felt spacious. Since we had a group of 'yours, mine and ours' family and friends, we also rented the Carriage House. The twenty something's. enjoyed having their own separate space over there, complete with kitchen, living room and 2 bedrooms. In the main building, the bedrooms were very private and comfortable and there were enough bathrooms for everyone. We put the tweens in the lower level and they loved having their own private place to gather. It was a wonderful place to build memories with our combined families having the space to really get to know one another but still have private places to retreat to. I hope we have the opportunity to host another family 'reunion' there.

Spectacular Space!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the Church at Ellis Hollow for the weekend of my son's wedding in Ithaca. We needed a place big enough for extended family and friends to stay in. The Church (and Carriage House) really fit the bill. The Church was comfortable, well-appointed and elegant with enough room (especially bathrooms!) for everyone to get ready for the big event. And it was a perfect place for other wedding guests to come to so they could unwind and chat after they arrived from their destinations.

It really is a perfect spot for a large group!
