1040 Comfort Road, Post Office Box 40, Ithaca, NY 14851 USA (Show map)


Minutes from Downtown Ithaca, "The Finest Rooms in the Finger Lakes" with a Private Chef. Michael Casper, an entrepreneurial hotelier and restaurateur, recently opened Private Hotel + Pure Food, Ithaca. This unique, small boutique hotel, with Chef's private kitchen, is tucked away in the countryside just minutes from downtown Ithaca. Fusing post, beam, pole, log and contemporary architecture, the newly opened hotel has received rave reviews for its sensitive and sophisticated style. The common areas are comfortable and homey, accented by Michael’s sense of whimsy. A Chef in his own right, Michael creates and prepares a unique menu comprised of organic and vegan ingredients that are primarily locally grown and harvested or sourced and expressed from the world's most demanding purveyors of foods, herbs, spices, coffee and teas. An eclectic fusion of rustic and refined, sophisticated and casual, modern yet remote, Private Hotel and Pure Food appeals to the discerning individual who desires high end appointments, amenities, the finest in bedding and linen, and the world’s freshest and healthiest food ... all provided in a serene, tranquil environment.
