The romantic Tower Cottage is unlike any other place to stay in Ithaca. Ascend the stone spiral stairs to a lofty, cathedral-ceilinged bedroom. The custom made glass and iron lighting combine function and beauty, while the wrought-iron veranda out your bedroom door may bring on a Shakespearean sonnet or two. The octagonal cathedral bedroom required a custom made mattress fromWJSouthard, a fourth generation mattress company in Syracuse, NY. We chose the Cazanovian, an organic latex, wool and cotton mattress, which we’ve covered in down (or hypollergenic) comforters, high-count line-dried cotton linens, and soft pillows to perfect this restful escape in the trees.
On the first floor, enjoy a comfortable living room with Stickley leather Mission sleeper sofa and rocker with footstool, tabouret tables, cable TV, high speed internet, and an outdoor deck looking into the woods.
The kitchenette is smartly fitted up with a French press and home-roasted, freshly ground coffee (or tea), mini-fridge, toaster oven, induction burner, and many other amenities tucked away in cupboards for when you are feeling epicurialy ambitious. The Stickley Mission table and chairs for four work just as well for take-out, so don’t feel you must cook!
The washroom in the Tower Cottage boasts a unique slab stone sink, intricate glass and heated ceramic tiling, arts and crafts lighting, and a waterless composting toilet.
The combination of arts and crafts and over-the-top romance in the Tower Apartment makes it one of the truly great places to stay in Ithaca, NY. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.
