Michael Casper's Private Hotel is more than a place to say, it's a destination in and of itself. The accommodations are top notch and the property is spectacular. Breakfast was a five star event. Michael and his staff are welcoming, friendly and attentive. This is not your average B and B!

We stayed 3 nights at Private Hotel and Pure Food in the Blue Room and had a great time. The room is very comfortable; the decor is eclectic and fun. The property is a peaceful oasis. The best part of Private Hotel and Pure Food, however, is Michael. He is an accomplished chef and a warm, generous host. He will...

Michael Casper, the owner of Private Hotel + Pure Food, is the most amazing and accommodating host we have ever met. The main gathering room is filled from floor to ceiling with items and art that he has collected throughout the years during his career journey. After we arrived, Michael did everything possible to make sure our needs were met....

Private Hotel + Pure Food is a truly special place to stay - well worth a visit for anyone planning to tour the Finger Lakes area, but just as valuable as a destination in and of itself. Michael Casper, the owner and chef-extraordinaire, is a wealth of information about ways to live a healthy life in harmony with the world....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Michael Casper, an entrepreneurial hotelier and restaurateur, recently opened Private Hotel and Pure Food. This unique, small boutique hotel, with chef's private kitchen, is tucked away in the countryside just outside 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. An ecclectic combination 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, the finest in bedding and linen, and the world’s freshest and healthiest food ... all provided in a serene, tranquil environment. ... more   less
