My girlfriend and I stayed here for a friend's wedding at a nearby farm. We had a wonderful stay and the accommodations were excellent. The room was a cozy space that in spots was a little tight on head room but was great none the less. Everything was clean and tidy upon our arrival, the bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept on, and the breakfast was fantastic. I can't recommend this B&B enough.

We had a wonderful stay during a recent trip to Colgate University, only 15-20 minutes away. Ethel's hospitality was beyond expectations. From the personal touches to a delicious custom made breakfast, we had a delightful stay. We will be coming back for years to come.

We stayed one night. Innkeeper was very accommodating, adding fans to the windows to cool the room down. Breakfast was wonderful.

The hosts placed a premium on our personal space, and offered their genuine hospitality when appropriate. Accommodations were clean, neat, and quiet. The food was farm to table...well presented, and tastefully created. I will use my son's comment regarding decor- "this home is photogenic". Ethel is a renaissance woman, replete with an operable spinning wheel, upon which she makes yarn from lamb's wool. I requested a tutorial on her operating spinning wheel, and the tutorial bore the threads of a lovely memory of our time at Graduation.

Ethel makes the best breakfasts. And the room is so private and comfy. You needn 't take my word for it; have you seen reviews like these for anyplace else you have stayed, or for that matter, any place you thought about staying. Now I was here for Holiday but it is very close to Hamilton college and Colgate University. Also Turning Stone casino and the boxing hall of fame, the baseball hall of fame soccer hall of fame and so much more. Just a gem in central NY. Ethel is the greatest host offering so much more than any hotel I have stayed at. So for the price....good value!©

This was our fist time staying with a B&B. Ethel has outdone herself and set our expectations high for other B&B stays. The Garden B&B was an excellent stay in a superior place with amazing dining.
