Welcome!

Welcome to the Grayhaven Motel. A charming 16 room vintage motor lodge located in Ithaca, a small city in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State. We are open and accepting reservations. Please visit our COVID-19 Response page to see how we are safely preparing for your stay. 

Our lovingly restored motel has been hosting vacationers and travelers for more than 100 years. You’ll find classic and spacious mid-century rooms as well as fully equipped cottages and suites with kitchenettes. Rooms have been thoughtfully restored with period fixtures and modern amenities to ensure a comfortable, unique, and sustainable stay. Several rooms are dog friendly.

We, Alexis and Mark, are the current stewards of this very sweet historic hotel and accompanying 11 acres. Three years into a major rehabilitation of the property, we hope you’ll join us for the adventure, and follow along as we work to preserve the history and charm of this local landmark.

 

Your Haven Away From Home.

Think simple, casual comfort. Clean, well appointed rooms, domestic linens, natural bath products and plenty of space to unwind. Situated on over 11 acres, we offer walking trails, hammocks for lounging, a bocce court, croquet, fire pits, picnic areas, and bird watching.

Nestled between Buttermilk Falls and Robert H. Treman State Parks there are more area gorges and waterfalls than you can shake a stick at. We are close to swimming, hiking, fishing, hunting and cross-country skiing. You’re sure to find four seasons of enjoyment here.

Come Visit.

Conveniently located, with easy access to excellent restaurants and Finger Lakes area attractions. A quick 3 miles by car or bike to the Ithaca Commons and State Theater. Cornell Campus and Ithaca College are both 4 miles door to door. Park at your door, lounge on our lawns, bring your dog and your family, relax.
