I met my sister for wine tasting and a Dickens Christmas weekend. We had a wonderful time, and the inn was close to the village activities so we could walk pretty much everywhere. However there is no sign for the place. I had gotten directions, but my sister passed it several times. No staff live on-sight, so the front door was always unlocked. Katie 2 was wonderful and chatty when she was there - for breakfast prep and cleaning. Being a former B&B owner, I'm pretty picky about things. But our stay was wonderful, and the food was excellent.
Leading up to our anniversary, I really wanted to find a special romantic getaway as a surprise treat for my beautiful wife after 30 years together. Doing a simple internet search, I discovered 10 Fitch and was hooked from the first virtual visit. Not only does the property look beautiful, the special packages offered by the Inn directly just makes it so simple to plan a wonderful weekend away. And when we arrived, everything we had arranged and experienced was first class and outstanding. Couples massage, in-room breakfast, limousine wine tour, a delightful evening dinner, special treats everyday from Cheryl and Sally, and those sheets... :o) Unquestionably, a destination of delight that absolutely made our special milestone totally memorable. Book and go as soon you can!!
Our party consisted of an 80 year old grandmother, 52 year old daughter and 19 year old college senior granddaughter. Aunt Louise and Dale made each of us feel so comfortable in their charming beautifully appointed period "Lake House" filled with family antiques that seemed to come alive with their storied history ....especially the "headless bride!" The warmth of their fireplace, delicious breakfast with its "secret ingredient," beautifully served and their colorful grounds covered with leaves each added to our reluctance to leave being a part of their family if only for a little while.

Wife and I stay at B&Bs quite often and find that a one night stay feels like a mini vacation. This was no exception. One of the nicest that we have ever stayed at. Owner, Cheryl, and her staff made us feel so welcome with many touches not found at other homes. Place is meticulously kept. Breakfast was great. Check out Lasca's Restaurant close by for take out Italian that we brought back to our room where we had in room dinner in front of our fireplace.
We decided to stay over night in Skaneateles. After looking at several bread bed-and-breakfast I chose Hummingbird's Home. When we arrived, I realized that I it made a mistake in reviewing my map and it was not walking distance to town. Upon meeting Sabina, we found her very cordial and accommodating. Our room was as shown on the website. Sabina gave us some information regarding dinner that evening which we found helpful. Overall we found the bed-and-breakfast to be of good quality. There were a couple of things that you may want to understand. First is we were on the first floor with windows facing the road and the traffic noise was a little loud.I also went to get some ice and found there was only two small trays in the refrigerator that we were using and both were empty just had water in them and that was only one other couple staying the night.The last thing that I would consider is there was nothing available to drink other than tapwater.
We enjoyed the area and the lovely overnight stay. Dale and Laura were wonderful host and hostess. We would go back again as we enjoyed the accommodations, the lovely breakfast and warm hospitality.
My husband and I recently stayed at 10 Fitch for four nights during our honeymoon. As soon as we arrived, Cheryl was warm and welcoming. Everything at the inn is very clean and organized. As soon as we checked in, we were given a detailed bill with the breakdown of all the charges. We stayed in the English Suite and it was amazing. It was very spacious and romantic. We really enjoyed the gas fireplace and private balcony. There was an organized binder in our room with information about the inn, several menus from local restaurants, and things to do in the area. Breakfasts at 10 Fitch are delicious and plentiful. Cheryl and her mom, Sally, cook amazing food. Sally's homemade chocolate chip cookies (which are available 24/7) are great, too! We were interested in getting a couples massage in our suite and Cheryl arranged everything for us. It was amazing and so relaxing not having to leave the comfort of our suite. We really enjoyed having turn down service (as this is something we have never gotten at other B&Bs we have stayed at in the past). We also loved the "Just Married" decorations all over our suite when we first arrived and the rose petals on our bed the last night. So romantic! Each room has a docking station with an ipod, which is full of spa & love music playlists. We also had our own mini fridge full of soda and water and our own box of snacks. We very much enjoyed our four night stay at 10 Fitch and appreciate the generous military discount we were given. Cheryl and Sally are such gracious hosts and definitely know how to keep their guests happy. My husband and I are already talking about when we can return to 10 Fitch since we had such a wonderful time there. If you are looking for a very romantic, luxurious, and clean B&B with organized and generous innkeepers, then 10 Fitch is your place!
Sabina was a gracious and welcoming host who ensured that our entire family's needs were met. She guided us to some of the most wonderful attractions in the local area. Breakfasts were delicious and she was more than willing to accomodate our dietary preferences. The charming home was clean and comforting!
Our family was looking for resonable lodging close to town for a weekend long Labor Day wedding. For the mere price of a budget motel, we stayed in a charming, spottless guest house minutes down the road from the hustle of town. My parents stayed in the Magnolia room and we stayed in the Lilac room. Both had really cute electric fireplaces that added character without heat. Decorated with antiques and interesting artwork, there were loving touches everywhere. Our host, Sabina, was gracious and welcoming. Her table was set each day with old world china and serving pieces, to accompany the cooked from scratch, made with love, breakfast. She was eager to accomidate our dietary preferences. On our final morning, we left, said goodbye and when we arrived at our family brunch destination, i walked in to see Sabina standing there. I couldnt inagine what she was doing there...I had left my cell phone in the room and she had paid attention to where I had mentioned that we were having brunch...she came straight over to the restaurant knowing that I would have otherwise left the Finger Lakes without my phone. That clearly seems to be in her nature...to go the extra mile for her guests. Lisa and Lee Moldowsky Westbury, NY
My husband and I rarely get away so when we do we want it to be worth every penny. Our stay at 10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn was just that. No detail was missed and the room as well as the entire Inn was immaculate. We plan to stay there again and again. I recommend 10 Fitch highly to anyone traveling to this area or even those like us that live close but want a great experience.
Hospitality was wonderful. Delicious breakfast foods. I was made to feel at home having no restrictions. House is for sale; outside porch area was in need of a good cleaning; eg. cobwebs, dirty cushions, old worn out furniture. Very friendly and welcoming staff!
This is our second visit to this wonderful place. Each visit has been outstanding. The Inn is beautifully appointed and the attention to detail is superb. The food is delicious and the table appointments are a delight, different every day. The bed and bed linens are heavenly. It is a wonderful place to get away from it all and spend some together time. Cheryl and Sally are warm and considerate. The fresh home made chocolate chip cookies are and added plus. Needless to say we highly recommend a stay at the Inn.
Everything was great! Sabina makes you feel right at home and welcomed. The rooms have a victorian feel to them. Very roomy and clean! There is a one minute drive into the village, so if you want to walk it's a bit of a hike, Plenty of free parking for 2 hours or you can pay $2 for all day parking.
Dale and Louise are such delightful people. They are perfect innkeepers, and you should stay here just to meet them. However, there are lots of other reasons to visit Aunt Louise's. Breakfast is delicious. We really enjoyed the other guests. The rooms are immaculate. Most of all, there is easy access to the lovely village of Skaneateles without all of the noise and traffic.
First time ever at this lovely B and B! Owners were very welcoming, rooms were exceptionally clean and quiet...Adjoining bathroom in our room was immaculate and convenient. Topped off by a wonderful gourmet breakfast in the morning, we would definately stay here once again.
We had a great time at Hummingbirds Home B & B. Sabina is very friendly and accommodating. She was especially nice about meeting my food restrictions. The rooms, location, breakfast and service were all very good. That's why we came back.
