Ithaca is AirBnB!

Do you have a rental property that needs some new furniture? Are you thinking of converting that extra bedroom into an AirBnb? We talked to one of our favorite customers, Erin Marteal, about how she furnished her AirBnB spot with items from Mimi’s Attic!

Treetop at Cascadilla House is the upstairs apartment in an 1875 brick Victorian in the Fall Creek neighborhood, just a few blocks from downtown Ithaca, NY. Erin often shops at Mimi’s and almost everything in this house is from our store or her own grandmother’s cupboard.

Erin said there’s lots of reasons she chooses to shop local at Mimi’s; “It’s a tasteful and pleasant atmosphere to shop in, it’s easy to get in and out, I can stop in during a lunch break, I feel good purchasing second hand, and most importantly, because I find great stuff there.”

Erin rents the space out year-round and says that the whole experience has been wonderful. “We want our guests to feel cared for and a touch pampered when they are here, and try to provide  a clean, easy, and lovely place to unwind and connect with family. Bobby and I love setting it up for each guest, it brings us a lot of joy.”

We love to see how you style your purchases and Erin’s decor has us wishing we could take a staycation at Cascadilla House! Check out the listing for more great photos HERE. Let us know what you’re looking for and we can dream up the perfect decor scheme together.

“Also, when I’m ready to cycle something out or try something new, I know I can bring it back to Mimi’s!” -Erin
