ITHACA LOVES TEACHERS! Nominate yourself as an educational professional, or your favorite teacher or school employee, for a free weekend getaway to Ithaca and the Finger Lakes – just a few hours from NYC! Let’s thank all those in education for going above and beyond to support students! Their dedication, patience and positivity make an impact on so many. They deserve recognition more than ever!

Community safety is a priority and the accommodations are following all NYS and Tompkins County protocols for COVID-19. All guests are required to follow the latest travel and safety guidelines.
