Great place to stay

4.8 on September 14, 2014

Clean rooms, great service, friendly attitude and atmosphere. The only drawback of the inn was that the omlette was a little greasy. But that was more because of the real cheddar cheese used to make it instead of fake processed cheese. Everything was delicious if a little non-inventive.

We loved being there! Beautiful house!

4.6 on August 30, 2014

Our trip was the best one I've had in a long time, and staying at Starkey House B&B was a real treasure and part of that special time! We had a great visit, were really happy to share our reunion time together with two rooms and balcony and loved seeing the train go by from the balcony. Cathy Moskal was very helpful and hospitable in providing suggestions for getting around the area, not to mention the amazing breakfast choices! It's a beautiful peaceful gracious house--a pleasure to visit there.

1922 Starkey House Bed & Breakfast

Our experience at the 1922 Starkey House Bed & Breakfast was truly relaxing and wonderful! The breakfasts were scrumptious and filling and the accommodations were extremely comfortable and clean. The view of Seneca Lake from the outside porches was a real treat! The Innkeeper (Cathy) is warm and very friendly and very tuned in to our dietary needs. I most highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast! I look forward to returning in the future!

Honeymoon on Seneca

5 on July 28, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed a three night stay at the Starkey House. This was our first B&B experience and were pleasantly surprised. Cathy offers clean, home-like rooms that put you at ease after a long day on the wine trail or hiking the Watkins Glen gorge. Our favorite part was the delicious breakfast provided each morning as well as the quiet evenings spent sitting on the porch and talking to other guests. We will definitely be visiting again soon and would recommend this B&B to all.

Wonder B&B Experience

5 on July 27, 2014

We stayed last weekend and had a wonderful time. Cathy is so friendly, charming & accommodating. She went above and beyond to take care of our vegetarian/vegan needs. She is very knowledgeable about the home and the area. The rooms are spotless, quiet & very comfortable. We highly recommend her establishment and can't wait to go back.

Great B&B

4.2 on June 03, 2014

My husband and I had a rare chance to get away for a weekend for our anniversary. We had only stayed at B&Bs twice before. This B&B is excellent, as it is very close to many activities in the Finger Lakes area. It's located on a quiet street, which was very relaxing. Our hostess was very friendly, helpful, and the breakfast each morning was fresh, plentiful and delicious! Very nice accomodations as well.

Live like in home

Wonderful Hostess and Beautiful Part of the Finger Lakes

4.4 on May 04, 2014

My husband and I recently visited the area, and spent one night at the Starkey House. Cathy is a delight and has done a nice job with the Inn. Breakfast was wonderful! Thank you.

Lovely Experience

4.6 on April 27, 2014

Our first bed and breakfast experience was an excellent one! The house is very clean and comfortable and the host Cathy very hospitable. The house is in a perfect location for visiting wineries on Seneca Lake. We enjoyed the absolutely delicious breakfasts and afternoon snacks - everything homemade and featuring herbs from the garden. Cathy is a fabulous cook! We will definitely return on our next trip to the Finger Lakes!

Awesome Bed and Breakfast

4.4 on April 23, 2014

It is very obvious that providing good wholesome food and a comfortable place to stay is a passion and a calling for Cathy. She shops for the freshest, healthiest ingredients and cooks one of the best breakfast I have every enjoyed and I have stayed in a lot of B&Bs. The B&B setting is a very quiet rural enviornment that is ideal for rest and relaxation as well as being centrally located for all of the Finger Lake attractions. If you don't take advantage of the chance to stay here, you will miss out on a rare opportunity for a 1st rate B&B experience. My wife and I were extremely happy we stayed here.
