Read a page in the guestbook!

Hi Jennifer and Dean,David, Alexi and I stayed at Small Graces over Labor Day Weekend and had a wonderful time. We did not have the opportunity to sign your guest book (with 15 month old Alexi keeping us on our toes!), so we just wanted to send you a short email expressing how much we enjoyed our stay. We have stayed at other B&Bs in the area, though what made this experience unique was having an entire cottage to ourselves and a homecooked breakfast carried to our cottage each morning. And speaking of breakfast...they were absolutely delicious! We are vegetarian, and we were well fed each morning with meals prepared with homegrown ingredients that were so scrumptuous...our mouths still water when we think about breakfast at Small Graces. We loved the tour of the farm and seeing all of the animals. Your B&B is the ideal location, close to the Ithaca Farmer's Market, Ithaca College and Cornell University, as well as Lake Cayuga. We had such a wonderful trip and your B&B was one of the biggest factors.Happy Autumn!

We have just returned from a wonderful overnight at Small Graces and spending time with the Whitmore family. It is like taking a step back in time and watching children using their imaginations in the things they make and the way they play. They climb the trees, make leaf forts, make their own doll clothing and happily help with the household duties. I am Jenn's aunt so I may sound prejudice, but I would say these same things about any family with whom I had just spent such a delightful time. It is such a joy to have children talk to you and share their excitements at our discoveries as we walk in the woods together.

As for Small Graces cottage - it is beyond charming. So quiet and peaceful and away from the stresses of daily life. The breakfast was delicious and hand carried by precious and delightful children plus their mama. We loved our time at Small Graces.
Aunt Sallie & Uncle Arden
