A perfect getaway for a couple not far from home

5 on January 04, 2015

My wife and I booked a night in December '14 in Magnolia Place. Most of the places were already closed for the season. We were looking for a cozy place, with a fireplace, and a jacuzzi for two and that was it. We really enjoyed the atmosphere inside the house. We were the only guest for that night. It was quiet, beautiful. The living room was nicely decorated for Christmas. The host is a very pleasant, interesting person to talk to. We had very warm reception throughout the stay. We got great recommendations on where to go for a diner and it takes less than 15 minutes to get to number of good places. Breakfast was delicious and ready for us when we were ready. The room is large and very clean. We could see Seneca lake and number of vineyards from our room. We had a gas fireplace, and TV in our room. There is a good collection of DVDs in the house. After reading books, a romantic movie is a good addition to an evening. Overall, I can't imagine a better place for a couple to escape to for a night (or longer for the lucky ones who can).

Quiet weekend away

Had a wonderful time away with my wife. Unfortunately the fire place did not work. Owner said there would be a refund for that. It is a week later and I still don't have the refund. Also, there should be more trash cans in the room as well as the shall was in a dispenser in the shower instead of individual bottles. Just didn't fit the upscale look of the rest of the place. Overall the place was very nice and the breakfast was phenomenal.

A Wonderful Get-a-Way!!

What a wonderful weekend! The room was magnificent, the food the best we have had a any restaurant or B&B. The meals actually looked like the pictures. The Innkeepers made us feel like we were family and gave us any information we asked about. It was definitely an enjoyable weekend and we recommend Magnolia Place for anyone looking for a B&B that is a notch above the rest.

Excellent Bed and Breakfast

This was our first time staying at a B&B and they did not disappoint. Our room was nice and clean and our hosts were very friendly and knowledgeable. The location was perfectly placed in the heart of the wineries, and last but not least the breakfasts were incredible! Definitely the best meal we ate each day!

Perfect for visiting lots of wineries

My husband and I needed a quick getaway (we live just outside of NYC), and Terri and Ted were lovely hosts. We stayed from Friday night until Sunday morning and went to 4 great wineries all within 2 miles of Magnolia Place. Would definitely return!

Weekend stay

The fireplace in the room did not work and that was an extremely cold weekend

Small Room

3.2 on November 04, 2014

I loved everything about Magnolia Place except the size of the room and that the bath was not in our room. You could barely move in the room and there was no room to open our suitcases. We stayed at 4 B and B's on our trip and for the same room rate we had larger rooms and a bathroom in our room at the other B and B's. So I thought this room was over priced. The food was great and Ted was an excellent host.

Lovely Bed and Breakfast

The hosts Ted and Terri make your stay so fantastic! The house is charming, beautiful and immaculate. Breakfasts are memorable with lots of variety served in a lovely conservatory. My sister and I enjoyed our vacation and want to say Hi to Irish, the well behaved black lab.

Perfect location & very comfortable

4.6 on October 27, 2014

We were celebrating our anniversary, very belated. We chose to celebrate with dinner at Suzzane's Restaurant for some fine dining. Magnolia was in the perfect laocation to spend the night after our meal which afforded us the relief of driving 50+ miles home. Magnolia was very comfortable and the inn keepers were very personable and accomodating. Our room was perfect and very well appointed. Our biggest surprise was breakfast the next morning! If breakfast can be fine dining this was it! Outstanding F We would highly recommend Magnolia as a great place to stay in the Finger Lakes which is one of New York States best attractions.

Great Weekend

Rose Room

Sophisticated butt cozy in deep greens,reds and mahogany, this vintage inspired room evokes yesteryear while the queen four poster brass bed retains the comforts of today. The Rose private bath is only three steps from the door alcove.

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Vineyard Room

Vineyard inspired art work, a suggestion of lacy ironwork and vineyards in twilight. Including an en suite bath, The Vineyard Room’s comfy king bed can be separated to accommodate two friends or relatives traveling the Seneca Lake Wine Trail or perhaps exploring the waterfalls and forests of the lake region. Vineyard guests can still ‘stay in touch’ with the real world via a flat screen TV and wireless Internet, if they must!

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Vintners Room

Deep burgundy, dark wood, and rich opulent plaids lends to the atmosphere of an Old World ‘study’ tucked away in the rear of the winery where the vintner sits at the desk going over wine production for the season, indulging in a glass of Reserve. With a king bed, and en suite bath, there is nothing Old World in accoutrements…after all what’s a study without a flat screen TV and wireless Internet!

  • Maximum Capacity: 2

Champagne Suite

With lake and vineyard views from two large windows across from the four poster queen bed, with a private access door out to the veranda, the room’s beautiful whites, crèmes, and chocolate brown hues, envelope guests in southern glamour evoking balmy nights in Charleston.
