About miriam bisk

We are retired, love entertaining and turning on people to the richness of life in Ithaca.

miriam bisk purchased this house in 1995

Why miriam bisk chose Cayuga Lake

Literally, we are in the country in the middle of the city. In Spring and Summer we are surrounded by green. In the Autumn we are surrounded by red, yellow, and orange. Occasionally, in the Winter we are encased in the most beautiful white blanket. These vistas which surround us most of the year compensate for the periodic cold, stark days of Winter

What makes this house unique

We are located 5 minutes by car from Cornell's Campus, 15 minutes walking, 20 minutes by bus.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much!!! We were made to feel welcome and at home. Not to mention the food was AMAZING!!!! We also enjoyed our conversations with the owners. We would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends and family. Thanks, Miriam and Lenny (and Frodo).

We had a wonderful stay this past weekend with Miriam and Leonard! They are the perfect hosts - warm and helpful without being intrusive. Their home and rental space is impeccable - neat, clean and elegantly furnished. A very comfortable space for guests. Miriam's breakfasts are like eating at a fine restaurant! We were truly treated like family (actually, better than family...). My husband forgot a tie for an evening event and Leonard came down with two racks of ties for him to pick from! We are looking forward to coming back. Thank you Miriam and Leonard (and Frodo)!

We just came back from Ithaca. We had a very good time there. This B&B we stay with is wonderful, we all love it. The landlord couple are nice and warm, they made us feel home. The breakfast is delicious! We want to say thanks to them.
