About Kitty Hall-Thurnheer
I love to be pampered so it gives me great joy to create beautiful, comfortable spaces with little surprises of wonderment. Prior to owning a guest house, I was a software guru, a jet pilot, and a journalist. Now I focus on keeping a balance between work and play. If there is anything you need or want, please let me know so I can make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Kitty Hall-Thurnheer purchased this House in 2014
Why Kitty Hall-Thurnheer chose West Elmira
Enjoy the quietness of west Elmira and yet remain within walking distance of the Chemung River, the country club, or a quick drive to restaurants and shopping.
What makes this House unique
Once you relax in the sunroom, you will never want to leave. Enjoy the front patio for early morning coffee and follow the sun to the back for an evening glass of wine by the koi pond and herb garden.

I had a wonderful weekend stay at the Cottage on Glen. Kitty, the owner, was excellent from the start. Communication was top notch, and everything that I could have needed was available in the cottage: from extra toilet paper to zip lock bags, coffee, creamer, deodorant, tampons...she really has thought of everything.
The house is charming. Two small but reasonable size bedrooms with queen beds, and a third bedroom with a twin. Plenty of space for a family. The kitchen is useable, with plenty of pots and pans, and the dining room is lovely. Great gathering space in the living room with comfortable seating. The outside is also lovely, though it was very cold while I was there!
Would highly recommend Kitty's place on Glen. It is a quiet, residential, street, and easy to get around from, too.
Clean, comfortable, and charming
We had a wonderful stay in Elmira and especially loved the peaceful setting and cozy accommodations. Kitty thought of everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The toiletries in the bathroom; the fresh baked coffee cake; and the treasure hunt all added a special charm.
Thanks for everything Kitty prepared, we had a great Happy New Year.
