Below are some of the great comments people have left in our guestbook:

My family and I absolutely loved your beautiful B&B! The small amenities made all the difference between an okay trip and an amazing experience. We loved it here so much that my 6 year old daughter kept telling us how she plans on coming back when she is older so her kids can enjoy your excellent hospitality along with the beautiful landscape all around. We came to Ithaca for a somber occasion and left feeling rested and at peace.
– Sheri, Beth & Amara, 6/4/17

We loved being in nature, finding a robins egg, buying tomato plants to grow this summer.  Seeing your horses, we were very comfortable and relaxed in your wonderful oasis.  Thank you. We hope to return for more R&R.
– Lucy, Ben and Emily, 5/29/17

I only stayed a short time, but truly loved it.  Will be returning in June to experience the loveliness of this B&B and horse farm.  Thank you!
– Cind E, Killingsworth CT, 3/31/17

We absolutely loveeeed our stay here.  This was the perfect Valentines  day weekend getaway.  From the snacks to the comfy bed to the fake fireplace, everything makes this place feel like home. But nothing was as nice as being in the hot tub in the snow. Amazing! Our stay couldn’t have been better.

Nice stay, came in late but it was easy to get in. Thanks for the note and snacks.  Wasn’t sure just how hot tub worked but it was late and raining anyway.  Very pleasant.
– Rick and Ann, 10/8/16

A thousand thanks for all you provided in your home.  Quite the unique experience, with a mix of modern amenities and old school charm.  Maggie and I took advantage of everything from the snacks, the comfy chaise to the hot tub, and ping pong.  Not bad for October.  You both were kind and giving of yourselves.  An excellent experience.
Michael and Maggie, 10/2/16

Thank you so much for your warm welcome.  We really felt at home in Omis house.  Enjoyed the porch, hot tub, and ping pong table, but above all, the peace and quiet of the surroundings.  I did really love the farm tour and getting to know the horses and donkeys.  Thank you again, we will be back!  Herzlichen dank!
-Lawrence and family, Parsippany NJ, 9/5/16

We had an amazing stay at your house. From the time we arrived, everything was taken care of and the amenities were great.  It was good seeing you as well.  Waking up to grazing horses and watching the sunset from the deck are some memories we’ll take back with us. We will definitely recommend the place to anyone traveling to the area.
– Aabhas & Madhuri, 9/4/16

Dear Jutta and Jessi, Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, very relaxing & accommodating.  Loved your place.

All the best,
– Judith & Phillip from Braunschweig Germany, 8/20/16

Jutta and Jessie, We had an amazing stay at Omis guest house, which was much needed for the night before college move-in. We had the pleasure of meeting Jutta when we came in and she was the nicest and most welcoming host I’ve ever met!  I absolutely loved the way the house was decorated and everything about it is so cute, especially the flashlight animal key chains!  I know that if we ever come back to Ithaca and need a place to stay, we’ll come back here for sure.  Thank you!
– Caroline from New Jersey, 8/18/16

Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome. Omis guesthouse is so beautiful. The tranquility of the area was just what we were looking for. The rooms were so comfortable and we had all the comforts of home. Julian and Adam loved to play ping pong table and Samantha and I were so grateful to have the opportunity to meet your beautiful horses and donkeys. I will recommend Omis to everyone! You are both wonderful hosts. Thank you so much!
– Gaynor, Julian, Adam and Samantha, Lichfield England 8/14/2016

Thank you so much for everything you did for us at our stay here. The house exceeded our expectations and I’m glad we chose Omis. Everything is so clean and all of the amenities so useful. We had so much fun lounging in the comfortable chairs and couches. Julian loved roaming the house and exploring. It was wonderful getting to know you both. The horses were one of our favorite parts of our trip. It was truly a rewarding experience. My motto for Omis: come as a guest, leave as a friend.
– Garrett, Lucia and Julian, Long Island New York, 8/14/16

Dear Jutta and Jessie,
My daughter Heidi and I had a lovely, restful stay at Omis guesthouse, where all our needs were met for, peace and comfort and more. Heidi took a hot tub tonight (in the blistering heat)! And I am very much looking forward to seeing the horses in the morning. You are a wonderful, gracious host Jutta. I hope to come back. We felt like the most welcome of guests.
– Julia and Heidi, Anchorage Alaska, 99508, 8/15/16

What a wonderful home! I had the pleasure of meeting Jutta and Jessi ; two very special friends who my sister has spoken so highly of for years. And now I know why! Lots of laughs and they are the most warm hearted people you could know. How lucky I was to stay here and meet up with my sister who now lives in NC. My heart is full-life is very good.
– Jaci of Oneonta, NY, 7/19/16

Dear Jutta and Jessi,Thank you so much for having me at Omis guest house. It was a wonderful, relaxing experience. I slept like a log. I love you both very much and hope to come and stay again soon. You are two of the kindest, sweetest, most generous people I have ever known! Hats off to STRONG WOMEN!
– Jan from Raleigh NC, 7/20/16

Jutta, What an amazing experience! The solitude of the country with all the amenities of the lovely house. Hot tub at night under near full moon was the icing….your concern for your guests comfort is evident. You really make an effort to provide wonderful accommodations. Great trip back to the hometown!!

Dear Jutta, Truly this is the quietest B&B we have stayed in, close to town, but far enough away to avoid the crowds.  We enjoyed fishing in the ponds, and the twin 5 year olds both caught catfish.  We enjoyed the wine tour trail and visited Cayuga, Lucas and Americana.  We even had a boat ride on the lake and visited the farmers market.  We look forward to visiting again.
