Welcome to the Grayhaven. A charming 16 room motor lodge located in Ithaca, a small city in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State. Our lovingly restored motel offers a contemporary, affordable lodging experience for visiting family, friends, business travelers and vacationers. You’ll find classic and spacious mid-century rooms as well as fully equipped cottages and suites with kitchenettes. Many of our rooms are dog friendly, and guests rave about our fenced dog yard.

We, Alexis and Mark, are the new owners of this very sweet motel and accompanying 11 acres. Two years into a major rehabilitation of the property, we are excited to continue implementing new amenities that make for an increasingly more comfortable and sustainable stay. Hope you’ll join us for the adventure, and follow along as we work on restoring these amazing grounds.

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.
