Magnolia Place was brought to life in 1830, as a farmhouse overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake, in what is now considered New York’s Finger Lake region. Magnolia Place sits conveniently in the heart of some of New York’s finest vineyards and wineries only minutes from Watkins Glen International Raceway. Magnolia Place provides eight individually designed guest suites all with private baths. Some of our suite’s provide Jacuzzis and fireplaces. Several suites have access to private porches with a view of Seneca Lake. We invite you to spend time with us at Magnolia Place where your comfort and relaxation is our utmost concern. Come and experience the magical sunrises and majestic sunsets over Seneca Lake. We want to you to return home renewed, relaxed and anxious to come back to us at Magnolia Place year after year.
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. Just as in 18th century novels, there is a private door leading onto the room’s own veranda area where one can catch the evening breeze with a glass of wine, and engage in genteel conversation.
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!
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!
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. With a glass of champagne and an ensuite Jacuzzi bath being drawn, prepare to unwind in slow southern style
On the ground floor, lilacs and sturdy pine of the Suite enhances both the masculine and feminine side of any couple…a sofa, TV and fireplace for him, pale lavender and green décor and a romantic four poster queen bed for her, plus an ensuite Jacuzzi for both. On the veranda, a table and chairs just outside the Suite’s private entrance is a great spot for morning coffee or toasting each other with Finger Lakes wine while the sun sets over Seneca Lake.
The Magnolia Suite. In the upper central part of this 1830’s house is Magnolia Place’s reason for being! The Suite has lofty ceilings, and its queen mahogany bed sits below a shear canopy facing the room's fireplace. Within the Suite is a separate bathroom with shower, plus an additional Jacuzzi room. From the bedroom, Sliding doors open onto the Suite’s own veranda seating ready to receive the visiting couple for morning coffee or a glass of wine when twilight descends on theFinger Lakes. Art work, net bed canopy and Magnolia accents hint of a Gone with the Wind grand era of peace and tranquility.
Reminiscent of bluebells, cornflowers, sky and water, the bold blue décor with pale yellow and white flower accents, creates a calm and sophisticated setting from the busy day.The Seneca room provides a queen four poster bed with with lovely floral curtains and valance to cuddle up under for a good nights sleep. With its ensuite bath, and private access leading to Seneca Lake and vineyard views from the sweeping veranda, the Seneca Room is a secluded true-blue retreat
Leafy green and white décor with a few nautical accents sets the scene for the lovely bay window views of vineyards and the lake in the distance, through lush green treetops. From the comfort of your queen bed, cozy in luxury bathrobes, just across the hall is The Lake Room’s private spacious bathroom. Step out on the large second story veranda from your own room access door, with morning coffee or a twilight glass of wine, to breathe in the expansive view of sunshine, sails and sunsets.

This was our fifth or sixth stay with the folks at Magnolia Place, and they have never been less than gracious hosts. The House becomes your home as it is beautiful yet unpreticious. Ted, Terri and Ian are great! And the breakfast........!!!!

Magnolia Place enjoys a wonderful location overlooking southeast Seneca Lake (in the heart of the Finger Lakes). The laid-back innkeeper greeted us warmly. Rooms were spotless and the innkeepers seem to have thought of those little details that make a difference (dimmers, battery-operated candles, etc.). The large double-decker balcony overlooking the lake is an attraction in itself - you can while away the hours there. We enjoyed it very much and will return!

Had a wondeful vacation with great hosts (Terrie & Ted)!!!! Breakfast was a delicious delight every morning. We especially enjoyed our private veranda where we sipped the local wines and cheeses in the comfy robes supplied by our host. An added treat was Irish the very friendly black lab! Will absolutely return.

This was our second time that we have stayed at Magnolia Place for the weekend. I love how relax the owners make you feel. The place is very clean and they serve great breakfast. Lots of room to walk or just sit down and take a look at Seneca lake on one of the porches.

We recently got married and chose Magnolia Place as our landing spot for our first visit to the Finger Lakes region. Our good friends have stayed before and recommended it to us. We absolutely adored staying at Magnolia Place. It's a perfect location for some of the better wineries on Seneca Lake. We also did a lot of hiking and thought it was a great location to begin our day activities from. The owners are wonderful, very welcoming and informative. We stayed in the Lilac suite which was perfect for our occasion. The room was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and the bathroom was really nice with a whirlpool tub and separate shower. There's a separate external entrance/door to a balcony outside with a really pretty view of Seneca Lake. We liked to sit out there and have snacks or in the morning with tea/coffee. The balcony was nice because you can either have privacy and stay in your own area, or you can talk with other visitors who have other parts of the balconies. The owners were respectful of the type of stay you were interested in; be it to meet others and socialize during breakfast, or to have privacy and do your own thing. Really a very comfortable and peaceful setting. We will absolutely be returning for future anniversaries!!!

Ted and Theresa (and Irish) were terrific hosts as Theresa's pedigree in hospitality definitely comes sparkling through in all areas of their B&B. The sheets, towels and bathroom accoutrements are what you would expect from some of the finest hotels. Decor and ambiance were excellent, very clean and very tastefully done. All the sitting areas were extremely inviting to just plant oneself and relax. The best was Ted's gourmet-like cooking from his famous souffles to his cookies and scones. Try his out of this world fresh ground coffee. Mmmmm good. My wife still raves about his food as we were only fortunate enough to stay one night and the other place did not even come close to Magnolia Place. Ted only uses local produce and fruits which makes for exceptional ingredients. Their menus are based on what is in season so freshness is splendid. Ted is also very helpful on where to eat and tour - usually one takes this with a grain of salt but he truly directs you to quality stops. Will be back and if they are full, we'll crash in for just breakfast. Bernie & Mimi K.
