We are so glad we found Vintage Gardens! This bed and breakfast is in upstate NY and the innkeepers, Michael and Kimberlee, were so friendly and helpful. Newark, NY is a new location for us, where we will be returning often and this B&B is the best in town, for so many reasons. The accommodations were plush and the breakfast was scrumptious. Everything was very clean, charming, comfortable and inviting, from the cookies as you arrive to the hearth, plush bathrobes and so comfy bed. The historical significance of the house, with its contributions to roses and the world of gardening, only adds more reason to keep this house open for all to enjoy its beauty. This is a landmark property all upstate NY visitors should see!
Kimberlee and Michael were very friendly and the breakfasts were fabulous! I have an intolerance to cow's milk and they very kindly made special (and delicious) versions of the breakfasts especially for me. Our room was lovely, and exceptionally clean....as was the entire house. The rooms were beautiful and beautifully decorated. We really can't express how impressed we were with the accommodations. We have stayed at many BnBs and this was definitely amongst the nicest! We are planning to go back!
We anticipated a one of a kind weekend and received so much more. My best friend and I, along with our little girls, couldn't have been more grateful to have found this gem. Not only is the estate beautiful, but once inside you immediately travel back to a time of elegance where time seemed to be valued a bit more. Each room invites you to stay and relax a while, toss the phone aside and so on. They meet your every want and need and I couldn't imagine being any more comfortable. I can't wait to go back with my husband one day!!
I was looking for a place to stay while working in Newark for a few days and was lucky enough to find Vintage Gardens. This is a beautiful home, with nice clean rooms. Kim also makes terrific breakfast in the morning. Highly recommended!
Five months ago, my husband asked me to marry him and I said yes! With a grown daughter headed to the Armed services and a host of other logistics to plan around I found Vintge Gardens and met with Kimberlee. With a timetable of 6 weeks we collaborted and had a wedding of unique, special, romantic proportions. Simply the best day of my life. I couldnot asked for a better venue, the service was outstanding, the rooms for our guests were spotless and I am still overwhlemed by the day! Thank you Vintage Gardens for an amazing day! the suggestions, the small touches, the special attention to my and my guests were perfect! A Bride that will always smile in rememberance of that day and the effort you made on our behalf. BCD
Prior to taking possession of our new home in Newark, we were looking for a place to stay for Valentine's that would allow us an opportunity to get an inside view of the village we were about to call home. Kimberlee made our experience everything we had hoped for and exceeded all expectations. Kimberlee is a wealth of knowledge on both the history and the current events of the Village of Newark. The Vintage Gardens B&B is cozy, comfortable and the Valentine's package included special touches like fresh flowers in our room and hors doeuvres fireside that were simply lovely. Breakfast was delicious and with the added benefit of good coversation and insider recommendations to ease our transition to Newark. Thank you for going above and beyond expectations!
From the moment we arrived at this fairy tale setting, everything was perfect. I don't believe we have ever stayed in a nicer place and for such a reasonable price...and this was our first experience with a B&B. The house, grounds, rooms are beautiful, clean and homey feeling...the innkeepers (Kimberlee and Michael Meeks) are so nice, helpful and hard working...the breakfasts (and cookies each night) are all homemade from fresh ingredients and are outstanding! We would recommend this place all day long and will stay there again when we make another trip back East. Cindi and Neal from Mohave Valley, AZ
Enjoyed our one night stay at Vintage Gardens very much. Kim and her team made us welcome. Our group of 6 sat in the gardens and had several glasses of wine before going out for dinner. Everything was in walking distance for us. Perfect stop over for our Erie Canal Cruise.
I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay at the Vintage Gardens, and can't say enough good things about Kimberlee and Mike. They were so gracious and welcoming, always making me feel like their most important guest. And the breakfast each morning --- amazing! Highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. - Carol from Charlotte, NC
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at your lovely B and B. The room was large, comfortable and clean. Every morning we enjoyed a delicious gourmet breakfast. We will definately be back. Corinne and Larry
We found this B&B online the first time, and have since planned several trips back to the Finger Lakes area to enjoy it again and again. You cannot beat this place in terms of service, cleanliness, and value for your money. They really pay attention to all the little details to make your stay enjoyable, and the breakfasts are to die for! Would recommend it highly to anyone.
As a woman who travels continuously for business I could not force myself to stay at the local chain hotel. On the afternoon of my arrival to Newark I contacted Kimberlee in hopes of staying at her B & B. She could not have been more gracious to a drop in guest. I was immediately taken to the English Tea Rose room. With windows on three sides, it was bright, clean and tastefully decorated. After a brief tour of the house I settled in the airy sunroom with my laptop to do just a little work but had a hard time concentrating due to the view of the gardens that were just starting to bloom. Late that evening when I returned from work I was relaxing on this big comfy bed thinking it can't get any better than this when there was a knock on the door. There was Kimberlee with some still warm cookies on a china plate for my bedtime snack. How she managed to do that after mounting a crusade on the toads in her fountain (a whole other story) is beyond me. I insisted on a simple breakfast which to Kimberlee means making fresh scones. Her husband Michael entered the scene and he was as friendly as his wife. He shared some of the local history of the house and the area. Unfortunately my time as lady of the manor was coming to an end but I took a little stroll around the gardens before loading up the car and heading to work. I would highly recommend this B & B to anyone. The hosts, the house, the history were all exceptional. Business travelers value their privacy and their points but staying here was such a treat. GIve this place a try. I wouldl recommend making advance reservations but if you do drop in, tell them Mary sent you.
