ABOUT THE HOUSE AND HOST
Many original details were retained during the restoration of the house including the wide pine floors, interior doors, and hardware. The Mary Hunt House B&B is beautifully decorated with antiques, quilts, family heirlooms, and handmade carpets.
The furnishings have been collected over the years during my travels to Turkey and antiquing in Vermont and upstate New York.
Guests often ask where the name of the B&B came from. I bought the house as a weekend house in 1989 from a woman named Mary Hunt and decided to honor her memory by naming the B&B for her when I opened in 2013.
The B&B is located seven miles east of Ithaca and is convenient to downtown Ithaca, Cornell University, and Ithaca College. Guests will also find State Parks and wineries within a short drive.
The Mary Hunt House is a restored circa 1815 Greek Revival house built on land adjacent to the site of the first town meeting of Slaterville Springs held in 1811.
