McLallen House, Inc. strives to create and develop educational
materials and programs that interpret New York State’s natural and
cultural landscapes for the general public.
As of Monday, October 28, 2013, the former bed and breakfast portion of
the 1855 Italianate Victorian house will no longer be open to the
public. It will transition into a fully-furnished private house with
four fully-furnished bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, that are
available for rent ($500 - $600 / month + shared utilities (cable,
WiFi, NYSEG, Village W&S) beginning in January, 2014 (or sooner)
with 7 or 12 month leases available. There are common rooms including a
fully-equipped kitchen, laundry and off-street parking. The #21
bus to Ithaca and Cornell University is a short walk down the hill.
Bill Chaisson, Managing Editor of Ithaca Times, will also live in the
house as the on-site caretaker.
Established in November 2003, McLallen House, Inc. is transitioning from
primarily operating as a tourist destination (a bed & breakfast)
that provided educational and recreational information for guests about
the Finger Lakes region and beyond throughout the state of New York.
Deirdre Cunningham, President, has spent over a decade conducting
research of several select regions within the state with the intent to
integrate these landscape areas historically and culturally. She
plans to devote her time year-round to developing interpretive
materials that can be taken physically into the field or can be viewed
digitally on-line from an armchair by an audience comprised of adults
