Coddington Guest House managed to fit 19 of of us (12 adults and 7 kids) for a lovely mini-college reunion in Ithaca. This house has plenty of room for lots of people, the location is wonderful and you cannot beat the view. We would not hesitate to recommend this place, but there are some things we would want to know in advance, especially for groups that include children.
If you are with a large group that's going to be cooking a lot, you should expect to run out of amenities like toilet paper, paper towels, kitchen bags, etc. If you email Denice, she has a list of what is provided, and can send that to you. We didn't have it in advance and were surprised that a short-term rental did not include what we thought of as basics.
If you are traveling with kids, know that the house has some rules that are connected to it continuing to serve both as a rental and as a Bed and Breakfast. There are breakables as part of the decoration and a treadmill in the leaving room, which is tempting for kids, so be aware that you'll have to be on your toes at all times. Denice asks that you use coasters at all times, so adults will need to be attentive as our small kids were not clear about the need to use a coaster.
The view of the lake is stunning, and the yard has lots of green space for hanging out. Again, for families with kids, keep an eye out in the backyard as there is a cement table with some rusty metal sticking out that just requires you to pay attention when kids are around. Again, common sense but good to know.
The bedrooms have plenty of space for people to sleep in many configurations, including lots of futons and pull-out couches and a cot, so you can fit a lot of people. The kitchen is well-appointed and has everything you might need for cooking.
Overall, this house is a gem for people who need a lot of space. Groups of adults or older kids will have no trouble with the house rules; families with kids under 10 should just know there will be some things to pay attention to while you are there.
We appreciated Denice's welcome, her communication in advance, and her willingness to work with us on questions we had on our arrival.
