Dear Wanda,
        Thank you so, so much for such a beautiful experience. I wish we could have stayed much longer in the gorgeous Polish room -- it was like a dream sleeping in a place so rustic and intricately beautiful. Seriously, it made me want to bounce around or give little gasps of joy. The little objects and ornaments you have scattered about everywhere are absolute gems. I loved being there and the little details were so appreciated, from the fresh fruit cut up at breakfast to the fresh flowers you left in our room. The precious animals everywhere made me happy, the blintzes were amazing (I still don't know what they are but they were delicious), the sauna made me VERY happy (I felt so healthy after soaking in it), and stumbling out of my room to a family breakfast was so unexpected -- it didn't feel like I was away from home at all. You have so much love to give, and your inn is a very special place. I'll definitely come back and visit when I'm in Ithaca again, and recommend it. Amazing. Thank you so much.
Love to Karolina -- it must be strange living in a place where so many people pass through, please send her my sweetest thoughts and wishes!


We had a terrific time this past weekend. The kids enjoyed your home and all the “added extras”—fossil hunting (they all brought some to school today for “show and tell”), the playground, trampoline, your daughter, Joanna, the animals, etc. Dan and I loved the breakfasts and the beautiful scenery as we rode our bikes over the rolling hills. It was a terrific mini-vacation for all of us. Our schedules are so hectic with work, kids’ activities, sports, music and school, it was so wonderful to relax and enjoy ourselves. We really enjoyed ourselves and will plan to stay with you again the next time we visit Cornell.
Thanks again. You and your family are so hospitable and friendly.
We felt right at home.


Your B&B has to be the most beautiful thing i have seen!! I was hoping that you might have a vacancy for the 15th and 16th. I am planning a last minute surprise for the man i love. He just proposed and he would love it there...
I just know it!


Hi Wanda-   Just a quick word to say how much we enjoyed our stay with you and how sad we were to leave  =(   It was so nice to meet all the other guests too. When we left, it was like leaving a friend. Breakfasts are pretty dull now we are back home! XXXXXXX Susan, John and Ailsa


Hi Wanda.  Mike and I had a wonderful stay at your place last weekend. We have talked about it daily and can't wait to get back again.  We loved your blintzes.  Is there any chance you would share your recipe?  I would love to try to make them myself.  Thanks!  Marla


Thank you so very much for such a fantastic and relaxing weekend. I truly haven't seen Mario relax like that in a very long time. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we truly didn't want to leave! The sulfur water did wonders for our skin and hair and the relaxed atmosphere did wonders for our muscles and minds! We will hopefully be back soon!

Thanks again! Jen & Mario

Hello Wanda,


I hope you remember me, my mother (with a broken ankle) and I came the past month, and we are even on your webpage !!! I wanted to thank you again for your kind hospitality, I deeply wish we could have stayed longer. Anyway, I will try to come with my girfriend maybe early september to spend 3 days relaxing in front of the pond and hiking in these beautiful landscapes … and of course enjoy delightful mornings in your company. Hope to see you soon,


Hello Wanda,
I just wanted to tell you once again that Zelia and I had a wonderful time during our stay on the 17th and 18th of August and we will be sure to visit you again.  I have already mentioned your pleasant Inn to friends in the hopes that they too could enjoy your great hospitality. Merci beaucoup ma chère Wanda et à bientôt.  (That's French for Thanks a lot Wanda and see you soon.)

Czesc Wanda!
I am writing to see the availability for October again this year as myself and a few friends would like to return to celebrate my birthday as we did last year. We had such a great time that we are looking to perhaps rent the large house as you mentioned which would accommodate a few more of us. Potentially there may be 10-15 of us right now. I hope your summer has been going very well and I look forward to your response. Dziekuje!


Hi Wanda!!!
Just wanted to send you a few of the pictures from our stay.  We had such a great's never long enough!  We love hanging out with all of you...especially at the fire pit! Please give everyone our love, and we will see you soon, hopefully October...


Hi wonderful Wanda!!!
this is jackie, do you remember tom and i? our picture is below, we came
and stayed with you in november, and we are hoping to come and see you again soon! we, and another friend, are coming to ithaca on march 8th to
see arlo guthrie in concert and were wondering if you had any availability.
we had our eyes on the persian room, since there are 3 of us, and i dont
think we can afford the suites. but we had such an amazing stay last time, and you are such a warm and kind spirit to be around. oh, and let me tell you, that wine i bought from the older italian were right, it definitely makes you 'happy'!!! our friend carolina, who will be joining us, saw one of your husband's documentaries here at RIT. we had told her about you and your place, and so she had made the connection. she said it was really well done. how has your winter been? how are your children and animals? well, i am so looking forward to seeing you, and if there is not room for us to stay, maybe we can come by and visit for some tea.
peace and love,

jackie (and tom)

Hi Wanda!
I stayed at your Bed and Breakfast with my boyfriend Mike in October.
We loved it soo much, that we are bringing my whole family back for
a weekend. I was hoping to reserve one of the separate houses - we will have 4 couples and one child, who can sleep on an air mattress or something.
I recall there being a house that could accommodate that many people,
with the bedrooms upstairs, and a common room upstairs as well.
The weekend we would like to come is the weekend of July 11- 13. I hope
you can accommodate my family - I can't wait to come back and relax at
your B&B again! Please let me know if this will work with you!


Dear Wanda,
We stayed at the Log Country Inn a few years ago when we were living in Syracuse and had a wonderful time. We are planning a trip for the end of July/beginning of August to celebrate our anniversary and would like to know if the Jacuzzi Suite we stayed in a few years ago is available for
July 29 - August 3 (5 nights). Thank you so much for your assistance!
Best regards,

Pierre and Karen

Hi Wanda, Swov, Joanna, George and all,
Thank you so much for making our new year’s so enjoyable and unforgettable. You truly are special people— so warm and welcoming, and we love your beautiful corner of the world. We will contact you about returning sometime— perhaps the summer! Thanks again so much,

Rick, Joy, Jesse and Leo

Hi Wanda
We wanted to send you a brief note and tell you how much we enjoyed our stay at the Log Country Inn.... We already miss Ithaca and the gorges, but Cozy made blintzes for breakfast last Tuesday. She's never done that before.
Wonder what gave her the idea???

Bob Bendesky

Hello Wanda:
I don't know if you remember us. We stayed at your lovely place a couple of years ago -- in the African room. My husband's name is Vin Urbanowski. You looked up the town of Ubanowa in Poland to show him where his ancestors were from. My name is Lori. Anyway, we loved saying with you and would like to come again for the evening of February 15th and 16th. We'd love to try the Polish room this time if it's free, but any other room would be fine as well. I hope you and your family are well and I look
forward to hearing from you. Sincerely,


Hi Wanda!!
It was a pleasure staying with you, I have great memories of our stay.
Greetins from Spain,

Dear Wanda:
My husband and I have looked into many B & B's in the area and find
that we would really like to stay at your B & B the weekend of
December 5 through 7. Thank you and we hope to be seeing you next month.


Karen Sinarski

with my girlfriend Julia. first I must say, the stay was excellent, thank you
for the hospitality and the awesome breakfast. breakfast is my favorite
meal, and especially yours. it was the first time i had eaten or even heard
of blintzes, and they were great!

Mike Jura

Hello Wanda,
We were up and stayed at you place back in the Summer. We may be coming up again to visit our son and new grandbaby and daughter in law. Was wondering if the Russian room was available ...

Tom Colgan

I am coming to visit soon and will definitely see you.

I'm looking for a wonderful place to stay at for my fiance's birthday on March 22 - your place looks great and beautiful! I was wondering if the
Polish room is available ... I just loved exploring your web site.

Debbie Urbanski

Hi Wanda & Slawomir,
Johhny & Coleen Comerford here from this past weekend. Just wanted to say thanks for a fabulous weekend! We hope your cat is feeling better and not too bothered by the bandages.
Looking forward to our next stay in November. Best & take care,

John & Coleen

hi wanda,
i have heard a lot about you and the 'log country inn' from my friends
jackie and tom here in rochester... i know actually that jackie is getting
in touch with you about us staying at the inn on the 8th,
after the arlo guthrie concert. thanks!

carolina dulanto

Dear Wanda,
How are you? Bill and I miss the Log Country Inn! We'd like to come by
on Wednesday and stay for two nights in the Russian Room. Is that available? We hope it is. We look forward to seeing you and Slawomir. Waiting to hear from you... Best,


Dear Wanda,
I just took a gander at your B&B online. The inn looks wonderfully rustic and my boyfriend and I would love to spend our weekend getaway later
this month there. We were especially impressed by the Polish Jacuzzi room and hope that you have an opening for this weekend. Many thanks,


Hello Wanda and Family -
It has been much too long! Mark and Chelsea and I are interested in
taking a 4 day vacation in late August in the Japanese Suite. ... We were
so sorry to hear about Nasz. We have adopted a Samoyed and 3 cats.
Melissa got married in March, and Chelsea is having her Bat Mitzvah this October. Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Wanda:
Your place looks great! My family and I would like to stop in the finger
lakes area on the way to Canada from New York City on July 26th. There
are five of us- mother, father, daughter and two brothers (one of whom is me). We're South Africans (I'm a student in the US at the moment) so the cabin with the Africa room caught my eye ...Thanks for your help. Regards,


Hi, Wanda.
I was really amazed by your LOGTV. We, two Brooklynites, are planning a week-long vacation in the Fingerlakes area from July 21st. Tell us more about your hotel, please, especially possible local activities, like outdoors, arts, etc... We speak Russian. Thank you,


Thanks for the information. The Ithaca website is excellent and very
helpful. I can see us having lots to do around the area! I would now like
to reserve the Polish Jacuzzi room for the 2 nights.

John and Carol

May we stay with you once again? Our dates are June 29th through
July 3rd. The Russian room would be great, but if it isn't available, we
will adjust to another room. We hope you all are well, as are we.
Looking forward to hearing from you -

Amie Albert and Diana

Hi Wanda!!!
How are you doing great I hope!!! We have reservations for the July 4th weekend for the whole cabin with the african room, russian room and internet suite. Carolyn Boucher made the reservations... We're so looking forward to coming and sitting around the fire pit again. We aren't bring
the bikes this time we are bringing the children.
See you soon,


Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you again. Andy and I had a wonderful stay and it made his birthday really special! We hope to arrange another getaway in the near future, hopefully when we have a little more
time to explore. I'd love to walk through the woods around the inn--
it's so beautiful. Hope to see you again soon,


Dear Wanda,

What a wonderful place to stay! Your hospitality and the serene beauty
of your environments were highlights on our exciting, quick excursion up
north. We even had time to jump on your trampoline and admire the
playground. I just now had to go back to your creative home page to
reminisce about our delightful stay. Over the years I have been to many
very charming B&Bs. Yours is one of the absolute best!
Thanks again. See you!

Thanks again so much,

Rick, Joy, Jesse and Leo

After staying with you I got a burst of inspiration and a sense of warmth in my heart. It was nice talking about our "roots" and some things I haven't thought about in years. I got my old cast iron frying pan out and tried to make the russian pancakes...for the first try they did not come out bad....If you could would you please send me your recipe I would love it. These seemed a little looser of a batter. Just added a bit more flour. We had a wonderful time and it was just what I needed to get back in touch with myself. I do hope that we see each other again.

Thank you, your new polish friend, Mary

Hi Wanda, We got home yesterday, we were a bit sad to leave you but we were so happy to see the kids and it feels great to be back home. We felt so at home with you, as if you were an old friend that we would have always known. I promised to my children that I would take them to your house someday.
Dovidzenia Catherine & Didier "the drummer"

This is just a small thank-you to you and your family for opening your home to Theo and myself. We had such a wonderful and relaxing time at the bed and breakfst on October 18 - 20. When we got back home (NYC) we highly recommended you B&B to all of our family, friends, and co-workers. We plan on coming back in the very near future. Please say hello to your daughter Joanna, and give Twiggy a rub for us. We will keep in touch. Again, thank you.
Regards, Charlene and Theo

Wanda and family, I just wanted to thank you and your family for your hospitality. We had a wonderful weekend and will hope to come back tostay with you.
Mary and family

My wife and I had a great time! The place is remote, but still close to Ithica and the fingerlake vinyards. Wanda-the owner-was very friendly, helpful, and cooked an excellent polish breakfast.

Matt and Sharlee

We stayed at this Inn approximately ten years ago. It was an experience that we are still talking about. The surroundings are fabulous and the food worth talking about for the past 10 years. We are going to return this fall for another visit with Wanda and her family. If you haven't been yet, treat yourself - you sure won't be disappointed!!!!
A fantastic place to stay! It was very peaceful and beautiful. The host was wonderful, her meals were unbelievable, and the cabin was absolutely gorgeous! Her pets just added to the pleasure of being there! We will definitely stay there again! Cannot say enough good things about our stay there!
Dear Wanda,

My wife and I would like to thank you for the great time we had at your bed and Breakfast place on May 2nd. The Russian room was beautiful and your whole area was great. We loved your dogs too. Especially the BABY St. benard. We look forward to seeing you again and having that wonderful breakfast you make. We will be back in December this year.

Hi Wanda & Darek,

Thanks for looking after us so well on our recent stay in Ithaca. We're back home now in Sydney ( unfortunately) and missing the great places we saw & people we met. Thanks again for your hospitality. Of the 17 places we stayed at during our trip, the Log Country Inn was the most relaxing & friendliest.

Warmest regards from Ken, Maree & Stephanie
(say hello to your animals too)

Dear Wanda (and all your helpers),

We were so busy while in Ithaca that I forgot to take the time to write a thank you into the guest book. We wanted to write about how good your breakfasts are, and how much we felt like we were "someplace else" (not in the U.S.) with your very welcome Eastern European hospitality.
We will have to come back, so we can write in your guest book.
Thanks for everything. Hope you all have a wonderful Easter.

Mary and Don

felt right at home.

another's aquaintance in the not-so-distant future.

Dear Wanda,

I just wanted to drop you a special note to say that Ron and I had a
wonderful weekend stay this past weekend! Our room, the Russian Room, was most comfortable and we enjoyed the decor. The breakfasts were quite
delicious and very filling. Your special pancakes and blintzes were
incredible! We also very much enjoyed your two Dalmatians! We are both dog lovers and felt right at home with them. It added a nice touch to the
already wonderful atmosphere you have created. You are a terrific hostess,
We are checking our calendars to see if we can possible squeeze in another
visit later this fall. Hopefully we can manage and we'll be in touch soon to
make our reservations.
Again, thank you for your gracious hospitality!

Nancy Dakan

I wanted to thank you again for the marvelous hospitality which you
provided to myself and Ivy on January 20th and 21st.
You have a lovely place with amazing views, and great dogs.
(Breakfast was incredible as well, but this goes without saying).
I have certainly spread the word about you and your location to my
co-workers and friends and family.
Our experience was one to never forget, and we will certainly be back in
the not so distant future.
Thank you very much again for allowing us one of the most enchanting
weekends of our lives.

Mark Gusakov

Dear Wanda,

We wanted to thank you again for this wonderful weekend we had at your place. Everyone enjoyed and had a great time at Ithaca.
We hope that the picture you took will be good enough to be on your website.
Take care, Thanks again.

Marine and Virginia

Dear Wanda,
Thank you for providing such wonderful accommodations for Diana and I. We thoroughly enjoyed our unique room and hope to return in the future (as Mr. and Mrs. Wallach maybe!) You truly have a lovely home and family and I wish you the best of luck for your business.
Thank you!


Dear Wanda,

We want to thank you, your family and Darek for the wonderful visit.
With your gifts of hospitality and generosity, you made us feel like part of your family. We came looking foreward to a restful little vacation, but also found new friends in you.
You are precious people and we are so glad we met.
God bless you,

Kathie and Jim

Hi Wanda,

Thanks so much for your hospitality this past weekend - it was delightful and
I especially loved the blintzes!! Thanks too for our directions to
graduation parking.
Again, thanks so much!


I'm so sorry that I forgot to send you the photo of your daughter with the
iguana, so here it is now.
We had such a wonderful stay at the Log Country Inn and look forward to
returning for our Honeymoon in November!
Take care!

Paula and Ken


We had a GREAT time with you. Our trip back was nice but much,
much warmer than Ithaca. We enjoyed seeing our picture but most of all,
miss the Log Country Inn.

John and Therese

What a wonderful place you have. We spent five wonderful nights with beautiful surroundings and delicious breakfasts. But best of all was our host family. Thanks for our best family vacation ever.

Bently, Tammy, Chelsea & Bailey

Boy we had a beautiful time there. Nice and relaxing and homey. We enjoyed the animals and the breakfast was a real treat. we found our getaway.

Natalie & Jim
