Booking On-line Reservations (BBIthaca.com) Made Easy

Welcome to BBGI’s new blog! Our B&B association members are located throughout the greater Ithaca area and offer a variety of B&B experiences to choose from. Whether you want an historic home or inn, a farmhouse, or a modern home, we have them all! Located in the Central Finger Lakes region, we’re close to wineries, hiking, waterfalls, water activities, art, music, and farm-fresh foods.

This first installment focuses on the website’s on-line booking capability. The instructions below will help you to choose a B&B for your stay in the greater Ithaca area. There are two ways to navigate your way depending on how you like to travel: One) you may only want a B&B for a “base of operations” to be conveniently located to your planned activities, or, Two) you may want to stay at a particular B&B for the experience offered by the host.

One) Finding a “base of operations”
1) click the “location” link for a map that illustrates where the member B&Bs are located in relation to the city of Ithaca. This will help you with your travel plans.

2) Once you identify which B&Bs are located in the area you want, click on the “check availability” link. On the “check availability” page, the calendar illustrates availability for the current two weeks. The anchor symbolizes “no availability.” For stays beyond two weeks, type in your arrival date and hit the “go” link to see which B&Bs have available rooms. ** see Note below

3) To find price ranges click on the home page “amenities” link or if you have special needs such as pet allergies, learn which B&Bs have cats or dogs in their home.

4) Once having selected the B&B you want from the “check availability” page, click on the desired B&B “DETAILS” link to book securely on-line. If you have any questions or special needs that need clarification, click the “email” envelope link to send an inquiry to the innkeeper.

Two) Selecting a particular B&B experience offered by the host

1) click the “members” page link on the home page to peruse through the listed members and “visit” the ones that appeal to you.

2) To find price ranges click on the home page “amenities” link to find out price ranges, or if you have special needs such as pet allergies, learn which B&Bs have cats or dogs in their home.

3) click the “location” link for a map that illustrates where the member B&Bs are located in relation to the city of Ithaca. This will help you with your travel plans.

4) Once you have an idea of which B&Bs work best for you, click on the “check availability” link. On the “check availability” page, the calendar illustrates availability for the current two weeks. The anchor symbolizes “no availability.” For stays beyond two weeks, type in your arrival date and hit the “go” link to see which B&Bs have available rooms. ** see Note below

5) Once having selected the B&B you want from the “check availability” page, click on the desired B&B “DETAILS” link to book securely on-line. If you have any questions or special needs that need clarification, click the “email” envelope link to send an inquiry to the innkeeper.

**Note: It is important to note that the availability calendar is not always in “real time”. Sometimes on-line or phone reservation requests have not been added to the B&B’s calendar when you happen to be looking at the availability page.
