This is a beautiful and well maintained old house in Dryden, a short drive from Ithaca. It's on a quiet side street and we slept well. Our room was large and comfortable. Breakfast was very good. Nancy is a warm and caring host. We recommend it.

My sister and I shared the Lavender Oais room during our week-long stay at the Turret House. We came from Colorado searching for long lost ancestors in the Tompkins County area and this charming home was the perfect backdrop. Dryden is a short distance to the historical societies and courthouses where we did our research and to the many scenic waterfalls and lakeside towns we visited. Our hostess, Nancy, could not have been more helpful or accommodating as we passed in and out over the course of the week. She provided comfortable accommodations, an early morning pot of hot coffee, delicious breakfasts and very good company -- leaving us with very fond memories of rural New York.
Thank you so much for your kind review of The Turret House. I enjoyed having you stay here and learning about your adventures over breakfast. If I could rate guests, you would get five stars! Hope to see you again.

We had a lovely stay at The Turret House in late August. The beds were comfy, the house is beautiful and the breakfasts were delicious. The house is very convenient to Ithaca and on a quiet street. We enjoyed our host, Nancy and we would highly recommend staying at this terrific B&B! Wendy and Tom Mullin

Only a late cancellation enabled my daughter and I to stay in the suite at this charming old home In Dryden, New York, while moving my daughter into the law school dorm at Cornell. We loved the place, the company and the warm hospitality Nancy provided. We'll be back when we next visit our daughter.
